Lyrics

I remember all of the things that I thought I wanted to be
我仍記得那些我曾以為能夠成真的事
So desperate to find a way out of my world and finally breathe
用盡辦法去尋找逃離我世界的出路 也終於能好好解脫了
Right before my eyes I saw, my heart it came to life
就在我眼前 我看見讓我心猶如復活般跳動的你
This ain't easy, it's not meant to be
這並不容易 也不是命中註定
Every story has its scars
每個故事都有它的缺痕
But when the pain cuts you deep
但當傷口帶來的疼痛加倍時
When the night keeps you from sleeping
當夜晚阻止你入眠時
Just look and you will see
等著瞧吧 你會發現
That I will be your remedy
我就是你所需的解藥
When the world seems so cruel
當這世界看似如此殘忍時
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
而你的心讓你覺得自己愚蠢不已時
I promise you will see
我能向你保證 你會發現
That I will be, I will be your remedy
我就是你所不可缺少的解藥
No river is too wide or too deep for me to swim to you
即使再寬再深的河流都無法阻止我游向你
Come whenever I'll be the shelter that won't let the rain come through
我會成為你躲雨的避風港 隨時歡迎你的到來
Your love, it is my truth
你的愛 就是我所需要的真理
And I will always love you
而我會一直愛著你
Love you, love you
永遠地愛著你
But when the pain cuts you deep
但當傷口帶來的疼痛加倍時
When the night keeps you from sleeping
當夜晚阻止你入眠時
Just look and you will see
等著瞧吧 你會發現
That I will be your remedy
我就是你所需的解藥
When the world seems so cruel
當這世界看似如此殘忍時
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
而你的心讓你覺得自己愚蠢不已時
I promise you will see
我能向你保證 你會發現
That I will be, I will be your remedy
我就是你所不可缺少的解藥
