海是什麼樣的顏色 藍是什麼樣的快樂
hai shi shen me yang de yan se, lan shi shen me yang de kuai le
What color the sea is, What happiness blue is

我用字句拼湊的景色
wo yong zi ju pin cou de jing se
When I use words to piece scenes together

到底適不適合 完全傳達我的

Are they suitable? Do they completely convey my meaning?

你是什麼樣的角色 給我什麼樣的快樂
ni shi shen me yang de jiao se, gei wo shen me yang de kuai le
What kind of role you play, What happiness you give me

我的字彙到底夠不夠格
wo de zi hui dao di gou bu gou ge
Do I have enough words in my vocabulary

把你鋪陳在 字裡行間呢

To put you elegantly in between the lines?
