一段情就能连接两个人的天

I love Gigi Leung’s songs very much, and I find this song incredibly romantic because of its beautiful lyrics.

I think that lyrics of Chinese songs are really able to capture a lot of meaning in a few words. For example in this song, I like the images of 2 linking 1 such as 一段情就能连接两个人的天 and 一滴泪就能挡住两个人的天

There is also this idea that we can be walking along life’s road and not seeing the things which are so obvious to us. Like faith, we all want to see before we can believe, not realising that it is only when we believe that we see:  只要愿意相信就能相见

And sometimes when life rushes us by, we only manage to catch glimpses of it and when we find time to stop and savour, we find that the magic moments have passed and what is left is only trails of the past, like a record playing in a faraway distance: familiar yet unreachable…缘分走过我身边 变成答录机遥远的留言

And there is the idea that our lives can change so quickly; our lives can change in an instant as what I wrote in an earlier blog on ‘The Year of Magical Thinking’:一条路就能让两个人霎那之间 命运都改变

And finally I love the way the question is posed in the lyrics: Did you appear at a time when my life is changing or am I changing because you appeared in my life? 是命运在转变你才出现 还是你的出现让我改变

Now here are the full lyrics of the song:

在相遇的城市迷失之前

寻找一张似曾相识的脸

握在手中的风筝断了线

是因为我寂寞你才出现

还是你的存在让我自怜

缘分走过我身边

变成答录机遥远的留言

甜蜜在梦幻的一瞬间

留下了真实的思念


一段情就能连接两个人的天

一条路就能让两个人霎那之间

命运都改变

只要愿意相信就能相见

一滴泪就能挡住两个人的天

模糊我的视线

呼唤着你名字

从起点回到原点

两条平行线总有交汇的一天


是命运在转变你才出现

还是你的出现让我改变

一个巧合的意外

变成一场最执着的迷恋

甜蜜在梦幻的一瞬间

留下了真实的思念
