温柔。

Exile:

因著剛才的回覆,想到了這首歌。

05年上完補習班去逛HMV,剛巧聽到店裡在放他的《Geek In The Pink》,覺得十分好玩,於是買了《MRA-Z》這張唱片。

那時候YOUTUBE還沒現在這麼盛行,在網上能夠找到關於他的中文資料少之有少,那時候的英文又不太好,跑去官網硬要了解他。

聽過他送給前任的《You And I Both》後終於深深愛上這個總是笑著唱歌的大男生。

後來他憑著《I'm Yours》徹底走紅,09年來了香港開演唱會。身邊沒有喜歡他的朋友,自己一個傻愣愣地買了票,站在觀眾席裡,看見他活生生地在我面前出現時我居然丟臉地哭出來了,但身邊的外國人沒有覺得奇怪反而對我友善地微笑。(至今還記得在前方哈哈大笑的鬼佬大叔的輪廓,哈哈)

然後在2012年他再來香港,場地由九展搬到了亞洲博覽,可容納人數足足多了一倍,但他還是光著腳在台上吃冰,笑著唱歌。

有一部份,所有樂隊都退場了,他就自己一個人一台吉他坐在台中,跟觀眾聊著自己的第一段婚姻,那時候幼稚的感情。明明不是十分悲傷,我卻在那場演唱會裡哭了兩次。

(老是在LOFTER說自己哭,其實我平常沒那麼眼淺哎。)

大概是那種真摯很難不讓人感動。不知道該如何說。就是直達人心的感動。

他的歌總是很鼓勵人心,但他不會盲目地說這個世上一定是快樂的、他會告訴你生命是殘酷的,但總要加油。

就像這首歌說的,老是覺得別人頭上就放晴,我家頭上就下雨,但其實別人也是這樣想你呢。

Sunshine Song

Well sometimes the sun shines on
Other people's houses and not mine.
Some days the clouds paint the sky all gray
And it takes away my summertime.
Somehow the sun keeps shining upon you,
While I struggle to get mine.
If there's a light in everybody,
Send out your ray of sunshine.

I want to walk the same roads as everybody else, Through the trees and past the gates.
Getting high on heavenly breezes,
Making new friends along the way.
I won't ask much of nobody,
I'm just here to sing along.
And make my mistakes looks gracious,
And learn some lessons from my wrongs.

Well sometimes the sun shines on
Other people's houses and not mine.
Some days the clouds paint the sky all gray
And it takes away my summertime.
Somehow the sun keeps shining upon you,
While I struggle to get mine.
A little light never hurt nobody,
Send out your ray of sunshine.

Oh, if this little light of mine
Combined with yours today,
How many watts could we luminate?
How many villages could we save?
And my umbrella's tired of the weather,
Wearing me down.
Well, look at me now.

You should look as good as your outlook,
Would you mind if I took some time,
to soak up your light, your beautiful light?
You've got a paradise inside.
I get hungry for love and thirsty for life,
And much too full on the pain,
When I look to the sky to help me
And sometimes it looks like rain.

As the sun shines on other people's houses
And not mine,
And the sky paints those clouds in a way
That it takes away the summertime,
Somehow the sun keeps shining upon you,
while I kindly stand by.
If theres a light in everybody,
Send out your ray of sunshine

You're undeniably warm, you're cerulean,
You're perfect in desire.
Won't you hang around
so the sun, it can shine on me,
And the clouds they can roll away,
And the sky can become a possibility?
If there's a light in everybody,
Send out your ray of sunshine.
