Just listened to Landy Wen's new song "忍不住原諒".. I love the lyrics! And suddenly I wonder, how come her songs are so relatable? I feel like the words are stringed together so beautifully to explain everything that I wish to express.

It all started with "傻瓜".

其实他做的坏事我们都懂, 没有什么不同.

I think that the above lyric, many girls can relate to it at some point in their lives. When this song came out, not only the melody was very KTV-ish, I believe the lyric was also why it's so popular among the girls.



我相信 你说的每一句, 就算是 明知是甜言蜜语.
可是我 总觉得哪里有问题, 也许这些话语 不是说给我听.
我相信 是因为你的犹豫, 所以把 感情陷入难题.
没关系 我有做坏人的勇气, 就算毁灭自己 也要捍卫爱情.
我全都相信 相信你说的每一句, 每一句 我答应 我可以 我不会负你
我全都相信 相信你说的每一句, 每一句 只差一句我爱你
我相信 你说的每一句, 就算是 一切都变成回忆
可是我 逃不开也回不去, 也许这些话语 是讽刺的回忆
我相信 是因为你的犹豫, 所以把 我永远困在这里
没关系 我会继续撑下去, 给我勇气呼吸 我只需要一句
我想你说不出 我爱你

I did not really like the melody of this song when it just came out, but then something happened and suddenly the lyric was so exactly what I wanted to say. So I kept listening to this song and the melody grew on me and now I love this song a lot. I think that this song relates the "disappointment" feeling. Have to be listened with the melody to be able to fully appreciate!

At that time, it felt like this:
I trusted, I believed, Even when all the odds are against you.
But suddenly it feels like everything I believed are just excuses I made up for you.


And the 3rd song..."忍不住原諒". I bold the lyrics that I feel are super meaningful. Enjoy!

明明有着秘密隐藏, 你的解释那么牵强.
我躺在你的胸膛, 因为不舍得而迷惘.
清晨阳光吻在脸上, 恶梦过夜就该遗忘.
完美的都是假象, 爱总有起伏会碰撞.
忍不住原谅是拒绝想象, 追究的下场会把未来埋葬.
"Refusing to see the truth because of the fear of destroying the future"
"When love is your strongest desire, you lose the power to let go"
忍不住原谅是有过天堂,才会再向往 回美丽的过往.
"The urge to forgive is because we once had paradise, and we just want to revert to the past"
"Tolerance is not a weakness. It is the strength of deep love"
"What is silliness to others, is actually such a strong love"

I think that girls forgive easily, because they are too afraid of losing it completely.


It would have been great if "錯的人" was sung by Landy Wen instead of Elva! It's also another song with meaningful lyrics.

明知道愛情並不牢靠 但是我還是拼命往裡跳
明知道再走可能是監牢 但是我還是相信只是煎熬
朋友都勸我不要不要 不要拿自己的幸福開玩笑
但是做人已經那麼累 假惺惺的想要逃
在愛裡連真心都不能給 這才真正的可笑
愛得太真 太容易 讓自己犧牲 太容易讓自己沉淪
太容易 不顧一切 滿是傷痕
我太笨 明知道你是錯的人
明知道這不是緣分 但是我還奮不顧身
可能 在愛裡面這樣算笨
可能 永遠沒有所謂永恆
但是我 不願放棄這裡面一點點可能 寧願笨也不想要悔恨
我太笨 明知道你是錯的人 明知道這不是緣分 但我相信有點可能

I have said this before and I want to say it again. I LOVE MANDARIN POP. I love how the lyricists stringed such beautiful and meaningful words together. There are just so many lyric out there not appreciated enough!
