写信告诉我今天海是什么颜色             
(yan2 se4 = colour)
夜夜陪著你的海心情又如何

灰色是不想说蓝色是忧郁                     (hui se4 = grey ; you yu3 = sullen / depressed)
漂泊的你狂浪的心停在哪里
              (piao bo =  drifting )
写信告诉我今夜你想要梦什么

梦里外的我是否都让你无从选择
著一颗心整夜都不了眼睛           (jiu = seize ; bi4 = shut )
为何你明明动了情却又不靠近

听海哭的声音叹惜著谁又被伤了心       (tan4 xi = sigh of relief)
却还不清醒

一定不是我至少我很冷静
可是泪水就连泪水也都不相信
听海哭的声音这片海未免也太多情       (wei4 mian3 = unavoidable )
悲泣到天明
                                          (bei qi4 = weep with grief)
写封信给我就当最后约定                    
(yue ding4 = deal / undertaking)
说你在离开我的时候是怎样的心情
