超欣賞的歌詞

當然不認同內容,但文字超靚。



曲:藍奕邦
詞:周耀輝
編:阿慶@與非門
監製:藍奕邦 / 三少@與非門

床上吻過我要吻的臉
然後默默預言沒有預言
皮上碰過細膩如絲
但沒大時代的烈

途上抱過我要抱的肩
然後暗暗刺上什麼漢字
就算得出一個謊言
也相信 我與你 在灼熱

從未聽過最放肆的電
然後慢慢在淪陷裡弔唁
從未試過美麗如癲
為著大時代的烈

從未見過似塊鏡的天
然後冷冷照過什麼故事
就算得出一晚安眠
從未去過某個偉大陣線
卻拜過暗黑聖殿

當所有大城無詩意
所有馬路無天使
只要願意 愛上你這樣容易
找得到花的意思
悼念著未幹的事

當所有薔薇在咀邊
所有傳奇在指尖
只想到此 好好的相依一次
算有過我的壯烈

沿著我吻你吻我的臉
然後漸漸面前沒有面前
拿著某串往事如煙
但沒大時代的烈

陪著我抱你抱我的肩
然後暗暗爆發什麼戰事
沒有顛覆只有糾纏
也相信 我與你 在灼熱
但是並沒有燃點

當所有大城無詩意
所有馬路無天使
只要願意 愛上你這樣容易
找得到花的意思
悼念著未幹的事

當所有薔薇在咀邊
所有傳奇在指尖
青春到此 好好的相依一次
也說過華麗句子

找個愛人來詩意
找個愛人做天使
只想到此 好好的相依一次
算有過我的壯烈


點解在現代的基督教音樂中見不到這樣水準的歌詞?

Labels:

well, I can think of a few reasons:

1)the purpose of a hymn is for communal worship, & thus it can hardly have the scope of narrative that a pop might have.

2)also related to the first reason. There are only so many topics and approaches you can have when you are writing a song for a congregation to sing. A songwriter can hardly show his/her idiosyncrasy by trying something too far off from what is expected of a hymn. Afterall, this is not for performance, but for communal worship

Christian music is not limited to songs for communal worship. Many Christian music published today are not meant to be sung by the congregation.

But even for communal worship songs, we still do not see lyrics with quality comparible to those in the commercial market. Worship songs can have a lot of variety too. Look at Psalms.

We can see good Christian worship lyrics in the English world, but why not in the Chinese world?

  • 正如林一峰話齋,閱讀,也是一種 state of mind。
  • 所以不限文字,還有聲音影像一切雜崩能東西,都在涉獵反思消化乾坤大挪移之列。
