「創作的本質就是一場革命,聽起來很嚴重?講小一點,我是一個長期患有焦慮症的人。」林夕說,自己是販賣心靈雞湯的批發商人,三十年來寫過好多療癒性的歌詞、鼓勵的文章和書,但雞湯不是人人適用。
他寫詞很焦慮的時候,安撫的話沒用,反而讓他更內疚;一個製作人殘酷的話卻反倒舒緩了他:不就是一首歌詞嗎,隨便寫了就唱了,唱了就錄了,錄了就發了!
「不過是一個歌詞,不過是一個不愛你的人,不過是一個不可能實現的理想。盡情去踩,如果它真的是你一生所愛,你就會心疼它被踩得這麼扁。重重放下,輕輕舉起。」

For the past thirty years, Lin Xi's lyrics have been a benchmark in the culture of Canto and Mandarin Pop. He has written over 2,500 song lyrics, but decades of churning out these supposedly soulful ballads on a round-the-clock basis has taken a heavy toll on the lyricist himself. His desire to outperform his past successes and to constantly produce top "healing and comforting" hit songs led to years of great anxiety and pressure. Find out how Lin Xi finally came to terms with pain and failure, and why sometimes doses of harsh reality may be more beneficial than words of encouragement or faith. 簡介林夕,通常如下:「作詞人,香港大學畢業即開始歌詞創作,至今超過三十年,作品接近四千,包括廣東國語作品。同期從事報章、電視台、唱片公司、廣播電台等行業,並撰寫專欄,出版書籍。」對他本人來說,就只有一個身分:文字工作者。從事過不同行業,只有一個目標:希望透過文字觀察、探究、解剖人生人性,希望做到寫情歌也同時在書寫哲學。歌詞不合適也容納不下的題材,如社會時政,就在專欄發表再結集成書。從事過的媒體工作,也只為了吸取最真實的社會經驗,從而讓文字創作的生命更豐厚更立體。

Lin Xi is mostly known for his lyrics work in Chinese music field in the past 30 years with 4000 published works. After graduating from University of Hong Kong he started to write lyrics for both Cantonese and Mandarin songs, he also worked for several newspapers, TV stations, music labels and radio stations. For him, his sole purpose is to WRITE. Lin observes, studies and analyze human nature through his words and compositions; those jobs at various media related firms certainly fulfilled his needs to absorb the authentic experiences for his creative writing.
