[Song/Lyrics] again by YUI

I cannot stop listening to this song. As I mentioned in a previous entry, the lyrics make much more sense if you’re familiar with the Full Metal Alchemist series. Even so…

English lyrics at the end. Bolded are lyrics that I’m currently in love with. Go YouTube it if you’re interested.

Kono omoi o keshite shimau ni wa
Mada jinsei nagai desho?
Yarinokoshiteru koto
Yarinaoshite mitai kara

Yume no tsuzuki oikakete ita hazu na no ni
Magarikunetta hosoi michi hito ni tsumazuku

Ano koro mitai ni tte modoritai wake ja nai no
Nakushite kita sora o sagashiteru

Wakatte kuremasu you ni
Gisei ni natta you na kanashii kao wa yamete yo

Tsumi no saigo wa namida ja nai yo
Zutto kurushiku seottekun da
Deguchi mienai kanjou meiro ni
Dare o matteru no?
Shiroi nooto ni tsuzutta you ni
Motto sunao ni hakidashitai yo
Nani kara nogaretain da
…Genjitsu tte yatsu?

Kanaeru tame ni ikiterun da tte
Sakebitaku naru yo kikoete imasu ka?
Munan ni nante yatterarenai kara
…Kaeru basho mo nai no
Yasashisa ni wa itsumo kanshashiteru
Dakara tsuyoku naritai (I’m on the way)
Natsukashiku naru
Konna itami mo kangeijan


この想いを 消してしまうには

夢のつづき 追いかけていたはずなのに
曲がりくねった 細い道 人につまずく

あの頃みたいにって 戻りたい訳じゃないの
無くしてきた空を 探してる
犠牲になったような 悲しい顔はやめてよ

何から 逃れたいんだ

叶えるために 生きてるんだって
叫びたくなるよ 聞こえていますか?
無難になんて やってられないから
優しさには いつも感謝してる
だから強くなりたい (I’m on the way)

English Translation

Isn’t my life still too long
For erasing these thoughts?
I have things left to do
Because I want to try doing them again

Even though I must have been pursuing the continuation of my dream
I stumble over other people on a narrow, winding road

It’s not that I want to return to how it was like back then
I’m searching for the sky that I’ve lost
I wish that you’ll understand me
Stop making that sad face like you’ve been sacrificed

There aren’t tears at the end of sins
I’ve painfully bore them all this time
In the labyrinth of emotions where I can’t see the exit
Who am I waiting for?

As if having written it in a white notebook
I want to divulge myself more honestly
What do I want to flee from?
…Something known as reality?

I’m alive so that I can fulfill myself
I feel like shouting so; can you hear me?
Because I can’t be doing it safe and sound
…There’s no place for me to return to, either
I’m always grateful for kindness
So I want to become strong (I’m on the way)
I even welcome such a pain
That turns nostalgic
Isn’t my life still too long
For erasing these thoughts?
I have things left to do
Because I want to try doing them again

    I agree. Never has a minute and a half been wrought with so many contradicting emotions; a perfect opening for the massive fuckery that is FMA.

      Completely. I still can’t stop listening to it. >>

    Did you copy and paste the English lyrics incorrectly? It looks like twice as long as it is.

      You were right. Thanks! :)

    the translation of the starting of the lyrics is wrong its actually supposed to be:
    Life is too long for me to erase my feelings…
    The 2nd mistake is:
    Stop making that face like you sacrificed yourself to make me understand
    3rd one is:
    Sins won’t end with tears,
    You have to carry the cross for eternity
    In the labyrinth of emotions
    With no exit
    4th one is:
    Is it reality?
    5th one is:
    I can’t stay one the safe side forever
    6th one is:
    I am feeling nostalgic
    I’ll even welcome the pain!

    So yeah these are the only mistakes I could find but I think that there were some more mistakes in the last paragraph…XP Btw HURRAY for FMA:Brotherhood!!!!Its freaking awesome!!!!!XD
