[Song/Lyrics] Ongaku

It’s the beats in this song, the strong voices despite the heavy techno background, that gets to me. Here, have some lyrics and YouTube:

*Note: I’ve rearranged some of the English lyrics to make them read better. Yes it IS a point of contention for me.

Soredemo dareka wo shinjitai kimi no chiisana tameiki wa
Sekai no doko nimo todokazu kieta

Ame wa futari wo uchisuete boku wa hitomi wo togarasete
Nan-nimo dekinai kono te wo hanashita

Boku ni mienai mono ga kimi niwa miete itano
Taiyou ga noboru basho made mada tooi

Tamashii no naka ni aru ichijou no hikari wo shinjite
Sakebitai kotoba sae naikeredo tada sakendeiru
Sore ga boku no ongaku

Itsu owaruka nante wakaranai
Kitto owaru toki mo wakaranai
Dakara mou sukoshi,semete mou ippo

Doko e ikitaika wakaranai
Soredemo shitsukoku yobu koe ni
Arashi wo erande ikari wo ageru

Sakebu chikara mo tsukite sono kumo ga kieru koro
Hageshii yoake ga umi womo karasudarou

Tamashii ga hateru made ichijou no hikari wo shinjite
Nakinagara utaunda nemurenai yoru no mukou ni
Kitto kimi no ongaku

Ashita eno chikamichi ga doushitemo mitsukerarenai
Hitotsu zutsu ippo zutsu sonnano wakatteirukeredo
Taiyou ga noboru basho e

Soredemo shinjitsuduketai kimi no chiisana tameiki ga
Boku no mune wo fui ni tsuranuita

Kimi no te wo toru tameni yamikumo ni tada ai wo shinjite
Bokutachi wa tesaguri de jitabata to mada tabi no tochuu
Tamashii ga hateru made ichijou no hikari wo shinjite
Detarame na senritsu ga afuredasu yoru no mukou ni
Kitto boku no ongaku

Romanji and English under the cut as usual.

それでも誰かを信じたい君の小さな溜息は
世界の何処にも届かず消えた

雨は二人を打ち据えて僕は瞳を尖らせて
何にも出来ないこの手を離した

僕に見えないものが君には見えていたの
太陽が昇る場所までまだ遠い

魂の中にある一条の光を信じて
叫びたい言葉さえ無いけれどただ叫んでいる
それが僕の音楽

いつ終わるかなんて分からない
きっと終わるときも分からない
だからもう少し、せめてもう一歩

何処へ行きたいか分からない
それでもしつこく呼ぶ声に
嵐を選んで碇を上げる

叫ぶ力も尽きて その雲が消える頃
激しい夜明けが海をも枯らすだろう

魂が果てるまで一条の光を信じて
泣きながら歌うんだ眠れない夜の向こうに
きっと君の音楽

明日への近道がどうしても見つけられない
一つずつ 一歩ずつ そんなの分かっているけれど
太陽が昇る場所へ

それでも信じ続けたい君の小さな溜息が
僕の胸を不意に貫いた

君の手を取る為に闇雲にただ愛を信じて
僕達は手探りでじたばたとまだ旅の途中
魂が果てるまで一条の光を信じて
出鱈目な旋律が溢れ出す夜の向こうに
きっと僕の音楽

English:

So wanting to believe in somebody
your little sigh disappeared without reaching anywhere

Rain hits us hard and I squint my eyes
Helpless, you let go of my hand

You could see what I can’t
It’s still far from where the sun rises

I believe in the streak of light inside my soul
though there’s nothing I want to scream
I just scream, that is my music

I don’t really know since when it’s been over
I really don’t know when it ended
so just a little more, at least another step

I don’t know where I want to go
so to the voice insistently calling
I give my anger choosing the storm

Running out of power to scream, where those clouds disappear
a violent dawn will dry the ocean too

I’ll believe in the streak of light until my soul is finished
I’ll surely sing while crying beyond the sleepless nights, your music

Why can’t I find the shortcut to tomorrow?
Even though I understand I have to do it step by step,
one at a time to the place the sun rises

So I want to keep believing that your little sigh
suddenly pierced my chest

To hold your hand I just believe blindly in love
We are struggling while fumbling still in the middle of the journey
I believe in the streak of light until my soul is finished
This irresponsible melody that overflows beyond the night
Is surely my music
