藉口 – 周杰伦

Well, this is my first post from behind the Grate Wall and I have to say it is very buggy. While Bl*gsp*t is outright prohibited wordpress on the other hand somehow squeaks by, but not without its lag and “connection reset” error boards. Really, who’s to say if this is at all successful?

Anyways, this song is an oldie but goodie for me. Sorry for the lack of a yootoob video, but I can’t access it here; as well, my whole blog has become a bunch of white squares where the videos ought to be.

Not much to say about this song except despite the fact that it is a simplistic radio-friendly love song, it is all the same done well, especially the drums. I could listen to this over and over again just for the drums. Well, I actually have. I don’t know who the studio session drummer is for this song, but Jay definitely paid good money for this guy.

Enjoy.

藉口 周杰伦

翻着我们的照片,想念若隐若现
去年的冬天,我们笑得很甜
看着你哭泣的脸,对着我说再见
来不及听见,你已走得很远

也许你已经放弃我,也许已经很难回头
我知道是自己错过
请再给我一个理由,说你不爱我

就算是我不懂,能不能原谅我
请不要把分手,当作你的请求
我知道坚持要走是你受伤的借口
请你回头我会陪你,一直走到最后

就算没有结果我也能够承受
我知道你的痛是我给的承诺
你说给过我纵容,沉默是因为包容
如果要走,请你记得我

如果难过,请你忘了我

Evasion

Turning over our photograph, my reminiscence at times clear and at other times indistinct
In the winter of last year, we smiled very sweetly
I see your crying face as you turn towards me to say good-bye
I heard it too late, you’ve already gone far away

Maybe you’ve already abandoned me, maybe it is difficult for you to look back
I know that I have done wrong
Please give me one more reason again, say that you don’t love me

Even if it’s me that doesn’t understand, can you not forgive me?
Please don’t let us break up, consider that my request to you
I know you want to persevere in breaking up, it is you that has suffered the excuse
Please look back, I will accompany you, always right up until the end

Even if there isn’t a conclusion, I can still endure it
I know of your pain, it was me who gave the promise
You said you had connived with me, the silence is because of forgiveness
If you have to go, please remember me

If you have a hard time with breaking up, please forget me
