Whoaaaa.. my favorite single so far from Tohoshinki – Stand By You has beat Arashi’s Everything.  It rarely happened but yeah, I’m proud of TVXQ. Still has to rise up on weekly and monthly chart but I believe they can do it. If not this month, then, in the future. Tohoshinki Ganbatte Kudasai !

Summer Time is Here: Everything July 1, 2009

The perfect song to start Summer would be: Everything by Arashi, which debuted #1 on Oricon. The first time I listened to this medium-beat song, it has this catchy tunes. It makes this song to be an uplifting song. I really think that this song is really perfect to start everything that hasn’t been done in the first half of the year. As the lyrics said, we shouldn’t be affraid of the future ahead because the sun will always rise again. Should walk forward towards the year with hope of tomorrow. Hopefully, all of you who listening to this song will think the same thought as I do. ^^

Everything

通り雨が近ずく 町の匂いは切なくて
アスファルトに残した影はいつもと違って見えた
変わり続ずける空は揺れる心を映すように
足早に世界は回り続ずけてる

赤から青に変わるシグナル
戻ることの出来ない旅の途中で
明日を信じて進みたい
この夕立の中で一人
振り返り立ち止まることもあるけど
何も恐れはしない

雨上がりの窓から見える夕暮れのひまわり
夕焼けに染められて朝日を待ち続ずけているんだ
何が大切なのかときに見失いそうだけど
譲れない思いを抱え歩いてゆく

鮮やかな青に染められた
未来は果てしない夢を描いた
乾いた心潤して
限られたこの時の中で
強く胸に思いを刻み込んだ
日はまた昇ってゆく

この長い坂を越えるとき
その先に何が見えたと知っても
後悔はしたくない
光ともしつずけ明日を照らして

赤から青に変わるシグナル
戻ることの出来ない旅の途中で
明日を信じて進みたい

走れ走れ 夢に手を伸ばすのさ
叫べ叫べ 声をつずく限り
心の感じるままに

the passing rain draws closer, the smell of the city is bittersweet
the shadows left on the pavement seemed different than usual
as if the everchanging sky was refelcting my wavering heart
the world continues turning at a fast pace

the signal that changes from red to green
in the midst of a journey of no return
I want to go forward believing in tomorrow
alone in this evening shower
there may be times when I stop and look back
but I won’t be afraid of anything

the evening sunflowers that I can see from the window after the rain
are dyed by the sunset and waiting for the sunrise
sometimes it seems like I’ll lose sight of what’s important
but I walk on holding the feelings I won’t let go

dyed with a brilliant blue
the future sketched out endless dreams
moistening my dry heart
in the midst of this limited time
I strongly carved the emotions into my heart
the sun will rise again

even knowing what I would see
when I cross this long hill
I don’t want to have regrets
I’ll keep going and shine on tomorrow like the sun

the signal that changes from red to green
in the midst of a journey of no return
I want to go forward believing in tomorrow

run run, reach out your hands to your dreams
shout shout, as long as your voice goes on
in the way that your heart feels

Beautiful Days June 23, 2009

Arashi has been around as long as one could remember in JPop world.  This group hasn’t really got me, even tho Masumoto Jun is in it. The song that caught me off guard is Beautiful Days, which is the theme song for Ryuzei No Kizuna. Amazingly, this song can topped Oricon Chart #1 for daily, weekly and monthly chart and #10 for yearly chart. So it defnitely worth listening to. The PV itself was very interesting for me. The set was very simple and the touch up of animation was really a plus point in this PV. It makes everything seems so alive. For some reason, I love the frog ! 🙂

Ryuzei No Kizuna talked about the value of family when the three siblings lost their parents. It reminds me that it was father’s day couple days ago. Since, my dad has passed away, I want to dedicate this song to my dad.

空に輝くよきらり
星がじわり 滲んでくよ
悲しいほどきれいだね

話 を聞いてほしい 事
あれもこれもあるけど
握り緊めて抱き締めて
しわくちゃのまま
星に願うといつか
叶うというけれど
夢の中でしか僕ら
とわにもう会えない

※空に輝くよ きらり
星がじわり滲んでくよ
帰り道 涙が止まらない
僕はずっと
空に思い出がぽろり
涙ほろり毀れてくよ
悲しい ほど きれいだね

悲しみをわけあって
涙の数減らすより
喜びを分かち会えない方が辛い ね
瞼の奥にうつる
零れる笑顔が今までも勇気くれるよ
もう一度合いたい

空に向かって歌うよ
そう歌うよ声の限り
不思議 だね 一人じゃないんだ
僕はずっと
空にむかい手を降るよ
この手降るよ力込めて
それが僕らのサイン

楽しくても苦しくても
もう僕らは会えない
どんなに願ってても

※ repeat

空に向かって歌うよ
そう歌うよ声の限り
不思議 だね 一人じゃないんだ
僕はずっと
いつまでも忘れないよ
忘れないよ
君といつか空に描いた未来

The scattered stars in the sky is sprakling and twinkling
Gradually blurring together
It’s so pretty but don’t you think it’s so sad?

There’s something that I want you to hear
There’s this and that but
I really want to hold you tight and embrace you
When you wish upon the star,
Your dreams are said to come true
But, only in my dreams
We’re together in eternity.

The scattered stars in the sky is sprakling and twinkling
Gradually blurring together
On my way home, the tears wouldn’t stop
In the night sky, the memories are slipping out
And the tears overflow
It’s so pretty but don’t you think it’s so sad?

Sharing the sorrow
And decreasing the number of tears
It’s painful when you’re not able to share your hapiness
Behind my closed eyes, there’s a reflection of a smiling face
Even now, it gives me the courage to say
“I want to see you again”

I look up in the sky and sing
I’m singing as far as my voice will go
It’s strange isn’t it, that I’m not alone
With my strength, I’ll reach up and touch the sky
That’s our sign

Even if it’s fun, even it’s painful
No matter how hard I wish,
We won’t be able to meet again

The scattered stars in the sky is sprakling and twinkling
Gradually blurring together
On my way home, the tears wouldn’t stop
In the night sky, the memories are slipping out
And the tears overflow
It’s so pretty but don’t you think it’s so sad?

I look up in the sky and sing
I’m singing as far as my voice will go
It’s strange isn’t it, that I’m not alone
I’ll never forget the time I spent with you
Never forget..
The future is painted in the sky
