曲:丁世光
詞:藍小邪

還是忍不住哭了 這次又是為什麽
你確定你還想要 聽嗎
真討厭我的脆弱 和太敏感的性格
這些我跟你提過 吧

安慰別人的道理我那麼多
還以為我真的都 懂了
但有時明明笑著
有時候也 不算寂寞 心突然就痛

親愛的你說 這到底為什麼
有沒有誰的人生 能真的永遠快樂
親愛的告訴我 到底該怎麼做
才讓每個埋在心底的傷口 能開出花再結成果

眼看天又亮了 太陽準時出來了
喜怒哀樂 都被它照耀著
像是提醒我 心跳看起來無常
其實哭或笑從來都不會出錯

你看我 傻得 到現在 才懂
或者是我到現在才願意讓自己懂
下一次的心痛 或許我真能更從容 你覺得呢

親愛的你說 這到底為什麼
有沒有誰的人生 能真的永遠快樂
親愛的告訴我 到底該怎麼做
才讓每個埋在心底的傷口 能開出花再結成果

親愛的別說 什麼算是活著
就讓我去痛到 明白所謂的快樂
你聽了那麼多 別提前提醒我
就讓每個傷口 自然地開花結果
我最親愛的 謝謝你讓我更像 我

This is my favourite song off S.H.E’s latest album, 花又開好了, which nods to their track 花都開好了 from 2003. An album of rebirth for the trio, the sounds and the songs featured are much more mature than their past albums, and also celebrate the strength of their friendship and sisterhood collectively.

This particular track is conceptually written to be whispered into a treehole, a secret if you will. As a ballad, the interplay between the sad thematic content and its hopeful undertone is very well-executed. Lyrically, the lines are extremely precise, without falling into overused metaphors or cliches.

I love that they celebrate their growth in all of their songs, in many different circumstances. S.H.E. is bringing hope and encouragement to their listeners now more than ever before.
