[LYRICS] JJ Lin – Twilight

JJ Lin – Twilight

不為誰而作的歌 (The Song Which Was Not Written For Anyone)
Language: Mandarin
Released: 2015
Lyrics: Lin Qiu Li
Composition: JJ Lin


原諒我這一首
Yuán liàng wǒ zhè yī shǒu
Forgive this song of mine,
不為誰而作的歌
Bù wéi shéi ér zuò de gē
Which was not written for anyone [specifically].
感覺上彷彿窗外的夜色
Gǎn jué shàng fǎng fú chuāng wài de yè sè
It feels like the night outside the window.
曾經有那一刻
Céng jīng yǒu nà yī kè
There was once a moment when
回頭竟然認不得
Huí tóu jìng rán rèn bù dé
I looked back and actually couldn’t remember.
需要 從記憶 再摸索
Xū yào cóng jì yì zài mō suo
I need to fumble through the memories again
的人 和他們關心的
De rén hé tā men guān xīn de
To remember the people and their care
的地方和那些 走過的
De dì fang hé nà xiē zǒu guò de
And the places I’ve been to.
請等一等
Qǐng děng yī děng
Please wait.

夢為努力澆了水
Mèng wéi nǔ lì jiāo le shuǐ
Dreams irrigate effort.
愛在背後往前推
Ài zài bèi hòu wǎng qián tuī
Love pushes you forward from behind.
當我抬起頭才發覺
Dāng wǒ tái qǐ tóu cái fā jué
Only when I lifted my head did I realize,
我是不是忘了誰
Wǒ shì bù shì wàng le shéi
Did I forget someone?
累到整夜不能睡
Lèi dào zhěng yè bù néng shuì
I’m so tired that I can’t sleep the whole night.
夜色哪裡都是美
Yè sè nǎ lǐ dōu shì měi
The night is beautiful from anywhere.
一定有個人
Yī dìng yǒu gè rén
There is definitely someone.
他 躲過 避過 閃過 瞞過
Tā duǒ guò bì guò shǎn guò mán guò
He’s* hiding, avoiding, flashing through, and concealing himself from my mind.
他是誰
Tā shì shéi
Who is he?*
他是誰
Tā shì shéi
Who is he?*

原諒我這一首

也許在真實 面對自己
Yě xǔ zài zhēn shí miàn duì zì jǐ
Maybe in reality, only when I’m confronting myself
才不顧一切
Cái bù gù yī qiè
Do I not care about anything
去探究當初我害怕面對
Qù tàn jiū dāng chū wǒ hài pà miàn duì
So that I can delve into what it was that I was afraid to confront at that time.

Who is he?*

* The “he” is not gender-specific (i.e. could be “she”).

This song is about unsung heroes and the people you forget to thank for helping you get to where you are. In the beginning of the music video, JJ Lin is asked about the people and things in his life he is most thankful for. He answers that there are too many, just like how there are too many people in life that you don’t know. The interviewer remarks that it’s not possible to talk about all of them and jokes around asking if he needs to write out a table of all the people. JJ replies that he’ll write a song. Throughout the music video, there are scenes of people helping out in everyday situations. They’re people who don’t always get thanked or whose faces could be easily forgotten years later. They include people on the train helping a mother and child, students helping a bullied student, people helping out after they see a car accident, and people who help the handicapped.


Twilight is a song on JJ Lin’s upcoming album From M.E. to Myself.
