张宇 (Phil Chang) is one of the famous singers of my era. Though I have been listening to his songs for some years, I first heard of 责任 recently from a friend’s CD. I fall in love with the song immediately. Subsequently, I search for the lyrics and the music video.
I love sad songs, I love the lyrics and I love the “story” of the song. I want to write a story for this song because the music video does not bring out my feeling towards the lyrics. Before that, let’s look at the lyrics.
Disclaimer: The lyrics of the song is for learning purpose.
哭着用力地说 既然去留都错 非要铁心拒绝我
就算爱也足够 毕竟责任太多 怎么才能让妳懂
心里的痛难受 选择的路难走 了解的话没有人肯对我说
想给妳的越多 辜负妳的越多 有谁会知道我承受的折磨
心里的痛难受 选择的路难走 我最爱的妳连眼神都空洞
越在乎的温柔 伤我伤的越重 得到和失去竟都在这个时候
