Beyonce第一句緩緩唱出If I were a boy... even just for a day...
我的情緒便馬上陷入了歌曲裡
沒有強烈的背景音樂 簡單的弦律 
我聽到的是Beyonce真摯的情感流露
我被一股透過聲音傳達這首歌曲的力量所感動著
好像內心深處某樣東西被觸動了 那樣的感覺…

男孩女孩看待愛情的方式大不相同
歌裡以女孩假想自己是男孩去看待愛情
由第一人稱 到最後第二人稱的敘事方式
情緒的舖陳 恰到好處 我很感動

有些時候 我也很希望自己是個男孩
或許有些事情我便可以更坦然去接受及面對
有些時候 我只希望自己強壯些 只為了捍衛自己…

有些時候 忍不住想跳出來說:你真的什麼都不懂哪…

這是我陣子很喜愛的一首歌
和男孩女孩男人女人的你/妳們分享

If I Were a Boy/Beyonce Knowles
If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I'd roll outta bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted then go

Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I'd kick it with who I wanted
And I'd never get confronted for it.
Cause they'd stick up for me.

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I'd be a better man.

I'd listen to her
Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
Cause he's taken you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

If I were a boy
I could turn off my phone
Tell everyone it's broken
So they'd think that I was sleepin' alone

I'd put myself first
And make the rules as I go
Cause I know that she'd be faithful
Waitin' for me to come home (to come home)

It's a little too late for you to come back
Say its just a mistake
Think I'd forgive you like that
If you thought I would wait for you
You thought wrong

But you're just a boy
You don't understand
Yeah you don't understand
How it feels to love a girl someday
You wish you were a better man

You don't listen to her
You don't care how it hurts
Until you lose the one you wanted
Cause you've taken her for granted
And everything you have got destroyed
But you’re just a boy
