Late night sad songs galore ðŸ˜‚

Triggered by Sing! China Season 3 Episode 3 which my sister highly recommended me to watch.

I was blown away by how nice all the songs in that episode were, and how good the Singaporean contestant 刘嘉慧 was.

All four judges turned for her, but she picked Jay Chou to be her mentor and had to challenge a fellow contestant who was already in the team.

She won the challenge but was later challenged by another contestant, and she lost to a strong opponent.

After Clarissa went to bed, my plan was to watch the episode again to see which songs the contestants sang, but it turned out that the episode had been taken down from YouTube.

So I searched the song list and listened to the original singers.

And the lyrics, omo omo. 😭😭

Three songs on repeat mode.

1. 于文文 《体面》

别堆砌怀念让剧情 变得狗血
深爱了多年又何必 毁了经典
都已成年不拖不欠
浪费时间是我情愿
像谢幕的演员 眼看着灯光熄灭
来不及 再轰轰烈烈
就保留 告别的尊严
我爱你不后悔 也尊重故事结尾
分手应该体面 谁都不要说抱歉
何来亏欠 我敢给就敢心碎
镜头前面是从前的我们 在喝彩
流着泪声嘶力竭
离开也很体面 才没辜负这些年
爱得热烈 认真付出的画面
别让执念 毁掉了昨天
我爱过你 俐落干脆
最熟悉的街主角却 换了人演
我哭到哽咽心再痛 就当破茧
来不及 再轰轰烈烈
就保留 告别的尊严
我爱你不后悔 也尊重故事结尾
分手应该体面 谁都不要说抱歉
何来亏欠 我敢给就敢心碎
镜头前面是从前的我们 在喝彩
流着泪声嘶力竭
离开也很体面 才没辜负这些年
爱得热烈 认真付出的画面
别让执念 毁掉了昨天
我爱过你 俐落干脆
再见 不负遇见

(This was sang by contestant 吴奇,who later beat 刘嘉慧. I like his version but somehow the original version makes me want to listen to it over and over again.)

2. 李泉 《拥有》

穿过丛林和铁锈
突然之间木已成舟
非要等到刻上额头
皱纹才会化作杯中的酒
轻描淡写的以后
胜过所有未雨绸缪
在说谎成为习惯后
那句真话还如鲠在喉
要有多渴望
才能够不想去拥有
贪欢过后恨不得时光倒流
要有多疯狂
才能够让短暂不朽
细水长流无奈海市蜃楼
在城市醒来以后
你兀自还唱个不休
十方世界的宇宙
我们只是稍作停留
那些高楼那些石头
所谓永恒走得摧枯拉朽
回归熟悉的节奏
体温呼吸心跳残留
悲伤总是才下眉头
一个转身却撞在胸口
要有多渴望
才能够不想去拥有
贪欢过后恨不得时光倒流
要有多疯狂才能够
让短暂不朽
细水长流无奈海市蜃楼
在城市醒来以后
你兀自还唱个不休
一句话反复研究
一首歌正等待间奏
一个人走到最后
一万年到底够不够
要有多幸运
才能够留满身伤口
多年以后眼中泪都成暖流
要有多虚伪
才能成为谁的某某
岁月风霜爬上旧时眼眸
在现实醒来以后
总有人还赖著不走

(This was the second song by 刘嘉慧. I prefer her version. There is something in her voice lah. 😭😂)

3. 艾怡良《我们的总和》

时而进展 时而退缩
谁丢出这个复杂无解的习题
纸篓里囤积许多错误 尝试睡去
习惯跟着表格前进
忘了翻页的空白 也是片天地
有时糊涂也是种幸福 不药而愈
你的过往 我停滞 减掉自己
字里行间 乘几年 好多风趣
从来没人能完美阐述 得到总和
对我来说 仍然美丽
也不妄想能找出证据
谁爱着谁 出版成品
我们被告知 错误是种必经 尽量删去
歪头思考 咬著铅笔
在小数点旁 四舍五入的游移
我们努力简化成 各自模样而去
话说回来 我的苦衷
最大的弱点 一直是算数问题
无论我怎么截弯取直 找不回你
你的过往 我停滞 减掉自己
字里行间 乘几年 好多风趣
从来没人能完美阐述 得到总和
对我来说 仍然美丽
也不妄想能找出证据
谁爱着谁 出版成品
我们被告知 错误是种必经 尽量删去
你的过往 我停滞 减掉自己
字里行间 乘几年 好多风趣
从来没人能完美阐述 得到总和
对我来说 仍然美丽
也不妄想能找出证据
谁爱着谁 出版成品
我们被告知 错误是种必经 你先睡去
只有我醒著 逐步解题

(This was the third song by 刘嘉慧. I prefer her version, though she lost control somewhere in the middle of it. I still think she’s very good! It’s a pity she’s been eliminated.)

I often wonder how some people can pen such beautiful and sad lyrics, and how some people can sing such beautiful and sad tunes.

The Chinese language is so amazing.

My heart feels heavy and light all at the same time.
