  • my code | for xx

    30 avr. 2008, 20h03m

    Hey everyone..
    long time no see~
    well, I was really busy during the last weeks
    and I decided to slow down my activity in here~
    but now I really had to make a new entry...
    So, I think I was kinda forced to write a new entry,
    to tell everyone that I'm okay so far ^^~
    and to tell you about my feelings that changed
    during the last weeks...
    unn, it's really hard for me to write this down,
    but I will try my best this time..

    It was not long ago, when i wrote about being independent...
    and I really think everything I wrote back then were
    my true feelings at that time..
    but now, for some reasons I changed like in 90°...
    There was a moment when I realized that there
    is something that's much more important than
    fighting for your dreams..
    I kinda noticed that I am alone, I mean,
    I don't have anyone to say "I love you" or
    things like this...
    Umm, these words sound like kind of emo-words -.-
    I hope you got what I wanted to tell you basically.

    This was when I listened to the song
    "code" by 錦戸亮 (Nishikido Ryo)..
    i really thought
    "this is what my feelings are like"
    I want to have somebody I can sing this song to..
    and I want to share the lyrics with all of you
    ____________________________________________________

    君を彩る全ての要素を僕が守ってみせよう
    何があっても側にいよう
    君が悲しむ全ての要素は僕が奪うから
    もう少しだけ愛を 愛を 愛を

    君に胸張ってこの想い 届けられる日はく来るかな?
    誰かに誇れる僕でいられるかな?
    君がいるのなら
    何だって叶えられるそんな気がするから
    届けるね愛を 愛を

    © 錦戸亮「code」


    translation:
    I'll show you that I can protect every element that colors you.
    I'll be by your side no matter what.
    I will take away every little thing that saddens you,
    So let this love last a little longer… this love… this love.

    One day, will I be able to tell you my feelings with confidence?
    Will I be able to stay as someone you are proud to call your own.
    WIth you beside me,
    I feel like anything is possible.
    I'll send you my love… my love.

    and they make me smile and dance...
    so now I am awaiting the new remix albums

  • is this a 「Mirrorcle World」? | x i go my way

    19 mars 2008, 8h43m

    Hey everyone...
    finally I'm back again ^^
    and of course with some good messages ~

    First of all, and that's kind of important to me...
    ayumi hamasaki (浜崎あゆみ) will release a new single
    called 「Mirrorcle World」...
    the song is a uptempo song and it is
    a full version of her song "Mirror" from
    her latest album "GUILTY"
    here is a short look at the lyrics:

    現在のこんな未来を僕は想像してただろうか?
    現在のこんな未来を君は想像してただろうか?

    現在のこんな未来を僕は望んでいたのだろうか?
    現在のこんな未来を君は望んでいたのだろうか?

    始まりなのかって?
    終焉なのかって?
    諦めたのかって?
    踏ん張ってんのかって?
    開き直ったかって?
    絶望したかって?
    ただ前に進めと
    あなたが言うんじゃない

    © 浜崎あゆみ「Mirrorcle World」


    translation:

    Did I imagine this kind of future?
    Did you imagine this kind of future?

    Did I wish for this kind of future?
    Did you wish for this kind of future?

    They ask me "The beginning or the end?"
    "Did you give up Or are you holding on?"
    "Are you shrugging off Or in despair?"
    You tell me Just to go forward



    ___________________________________________________________

    So and of course something personal from me now...
    well, i really decided to go my own way...
    i know this sounds a bit weird,
    but my past showed me what it is like to
    be said what to do and what not to do...
    So now i really want to do what I want to do...
    For years now, Japan was really important to me...
    Everyone said, "uuh these dog eating people" and such things, and i really wanted to show everyone
    that these are just bad ideas about how life in Japan
    is like.
    I really stood up for my feelings towards Japan and
    ayu...
    I used all of my energy to go for my dream,
    and,
    now I can say, that everything i did was right...
    no one can tell me what i have to like or what not...
    so, i'm going to Japan this winter.

  • I am... | breaking down

    4 mars 2008, 9h49m

    Well, everyone..
    at the moment everything is kind of breaking down...
    I'm ill today and really nothing is helping me
    to get up again, so I have to fight against myself...
    Trust me, it's really annoying...
    For some reasons i feel some new energy
    whenever I listen to a special song.
    It's "I am..." by ayumi hamasaki...
    I never thought this song could give me so much power,
    but it defenitely is, right now...
    So everyone, I want to share this song with
    all of you~
    and I hope my health will be back again~

    私はずっと たったひとつの言葉を探してる

    この瞳見つめて 私の名前を呼んでみて欲しいの
    この手握って 大丈夫だって頷いて欲しいの

    Despite my faults, will I be forgiven?
    Please tell me.

    Please understand, that's not what I'm saying.
    Please notice, this isn't what I want.
    Please let me go, I don't want to go there.
    I've been searching for just one word.

    I want you to stare into my eyes and say my name.
    I want you to hold my hand and tell me it'll be ok.
    Help me; if you don't, I don't think I can make it.
    If this is a lie, then at least keep the lie going to the end.

  • back again | where i came from

    26 fév. 2008, 11h17m

    Well, I'm completely back again now.
    So, ただいま...
    unn~ at the moment I'm all right...
    I was ill but now it's okay again~

    So...I returned to where i came from...
    that means..
    I had a period during which I didn't hear any songs of
    ayumi hamasaki...
    but right now I returned to her music~
    ( ^ _ ^ )
    and, there's one song that is expressing my feelings
    right now..
    it's "Who..."~

    So let's see, 'caus I'm in school right now
    my time today is limited...
    I am going to a concert today too...
    so...I will report about that afterwards...
    sooo~, またね...

  • A DREAM | today & tommorow

    15 fév. 2008, 15h30m

    Well, today is a great day.
    The weather turned well again and we had some fun too.
    I realized one really important thing today.
    There is no reason to give up.
    You are never alone, so there's always
    someone who supports you and who helps you out,
    even if it's a hard situation, never stop fighting
    and doing your best.
    So I keep looking forward, not trying to
    look back anymore, and I really want to fight
    for tommorow, yes, I will do my best.

    Born to be free, even if
    I'm distant from the dream today

  • MEMORIES | mind & soul

    13 fév. 2008, 15h15m

    So everyone..
    hello again~
    as the weather report tod us, the weather
    gone bad today...
    the sky is filled with grey clouds and
    it's really cold outside.
    To be honest, this was one of the reasons
    why my energy got lost somehow...
    At the moment I have to study harder,
    caus there will be some tests during the next week,
    but I don't think I will stop writing in this blog.
    At the moment I am just thinking about
    the last days...
    it was really awesome...but everyone
    let's make the best out of this.

    Against what and until when do I keep on fighting?

    In this place
    Where I feel stress even when breathing

    I've come to be able to smile
    Even when I feel no fun
    I wonder if I have changed

    We're free to go anywhere we want
    We're free to do anything we want
    Maybe I keep on fighting against freedom

    We had so much fun.
    We laughed and smiled again.

    I can see a wonderful slowly developping
    sunset...
    the colors are truely amazing...
    high up in the sky there is a sark blue,
    going down to light blue,
    which is turning to bright orange and orange...
    it's really awesome...
    So everyone..

    we can share this wonderful sky together... ( ^ _ ^ )

    Will be able to flap its wings once again
