I searched for the place the rainbow came from
I went to take some of the abundant light there

It didn’t shine, and nobody could see me
They pretended to understand, but it was fine

So I went off searching for that phoenix
I went to take some of its many feathers

But, you know,
They were all too big for me
And the reasons to pursue them too small

Because even though all I know how to do is shine and then go out
Don’t I look nice when I shine?
That reason to clear up the vision of the muddy tomorrow in sight
Isn’t being told to anyone anymore

It’s okay
I have no name, but when I disappear, be sure to cry for me

At that moment, I want you to find the brightest star in the sky
And make its name my own

Happy things and sad things are always split 50-50
And that’s why in your last breath, it finally equals zero

Even though all I know how to do is shine and then go out
The me that is singing is right here
That smile you show means so much to me
So please stop searching for tomorrow

Even though all I know how to do is shine and then go out
Don’t I look nice when I shine?

And so, in this hurting chest, I’ll take a seed of light along with me
And until I can say that this is happiness, I want to shine

If this is just to be a life of stealing and running away…

This ones been done a few times before, but the translations I saw were both missing something. Mine probably isn’t perfect, but I’m putting it out there anyway

This is a really great song, and one of the first I heard from Radwimps actually. I found it really boring back then, but now its anything but, with all the key/time signature changes. I like the harmonization of the guitar and bass at the very end.

Where can I begin? What are my goals?
I found Eden-like light in a picture
I’m not awake, but I’m not dreaming either
Unable to sleep, I lean backĀ  on the concrete and look up

Branched out above, stars fall and the sky clears
My outstretched arms don’t reach – I can’t feel your sadness

You, while following along, walked right out of a noisy city
As you put away a love and imagined the day we can all smile without hesitation

So many times, we’ve passed right by each other, just like you
Like a monologue, we were singing a song of dawn so very nearby

You, while confused, walked right out of a silent forest
As you imagined the day we can all smile without hesitation

I too, while following along, walked right out of a noisy city
Someday, the time will come where we can smile without hesitation
I too, while confused, walked right out of a silent forest
As I imagined the day we can all smile without hesitation
And that love is now shining

Tsubomi Single Download

http://visualscandal3.blogspot.ca/2012/08/maxi-single-aqua-timez-tsubomi-22082012.html

Heikou Sekai is way better than Tsubomi. I feel like the chorus melody could have been done a bit better, but it almost reminds me of something off Kaze wo Atsumete, which is nice. It sounds like there’s a guitar solo at one point, but it’s so quiet in the mix you can’t even hear it for some reason. I do love the sound of the augmented fifths in a major key, though.

The remix of isshun no chiri is ridiculously bad though.

In case anyone wasn’t aware, they have a new album coming out in a bit over a week. I’m actually looking forward to a bit, as there’s 10 new tracks. Kimi to Nara was on youtube a while ago, and it sounded pretty good. I’m hoping the intro track is something heavier like they used to do. It’s been a while since they’ve done something like that.

On a side note, Inoue Joe also has a song called “HOME”… one of his relatively few good songs, actually.

Looking outside in boredom, your bad days were reflected in mine
If I calm my mind by saying “let’s go on a walk”, it’s as if a great joy is hurrying me along

Like a worn out film, my memories play back broken and disconnected

On a swing, I tried to get closer to the sky
Because beyond that spring, there is a shining lawn

The current, time, water, clouds – these can’t be stopped
The “beginning” is the one thing that doesn’t seem to end
The dreams from bygone days, every day from that time
The sunday from that time where everyone would nap

When once again a kiss was given with a wet nose – even now I remember

On a swing, I tried to get closer to the sky
Beyond that spring, there is a shining lawn
Dogs that look happy run around in circles
Even if most of this world is a lie, that is something I can believe in

I don’t think I’ll be translating Tsubomi. Not only does the song completely bore me and feel like a rip-off of Niji, but the lyrics look similarly bland from what I’ve seen.
