On June 10th, Zhang Lei’s new 2021 album’s latest main song “Goodbye Boy” was launched. The song tells the stories that people in contemporary society often encounter in their lives with straightforward words and melodious melody, expressing the passing of time We are not willing to abandon our ideals even if we are all wounded, and even if the road ahead is slim, we can still find ourselves in the song that “there is light in our eyes and dreams in our hearts”.
A simple and soft guitar melody opens. With the sound of the horn, time seems to have been pressed back, and the youth of that year in a hurry seems as vivid as yesterday. Zhang Lei’s unique singing voice and the chanting between the lines awakened the memories in his mind one by one. The once incomparable self was brave, rebellious, and desperate. Today, we have the cowardice of taking care of the overall situation, fearful of the head and tail, struggling to move, and dare not mention the word “dream” again. The calm melody slowly unfolds the living scenes of people in contemporary society. Their appearance is lost to time, dreams are lost to reality, and life is surrounded by firewood, rice, oil, car loans, and mortgages. However, no matter how much helplessness, struggle, guilt, complaint, and ridicule, we still hold on to the broken dream deep in our hearts. The sound of the drums at the end of the song contrasted with Zhang Lei’s gentle and determined singing, symbolizing our determination to give up, no matter how many times we fail, we can always see it, and the dream is at your fingertips.
Goodbye is a farewell and a reunion. After going through the wind and snow and crossing the mountains and seas, I still remember my original intention when I was young. Zhang Lei tells his emotional journey along the way with his deep emotional voice. Although the journey has been bumpy, he has always insisted on his love and persistence for music, constantly breaking through himself and making music with his heart. He also hopes to tell everyone through this song: Although we can’t start again when we are young, we who are unwilling to abandon our dreams still have to keep our faith and go on!Return to Sohu to see more
