Three Day Lyrical Challenge: Day 1

Hello all and happy Tuesday! I was tagged by the fabulous Always a Nefelibata over on her blog, so please be sure to check her content out!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  • Nominate three other bloggers each day

To start the first day of this challenge off right, I recommend this glorious piece of genius and beauty by the Japanese artist Frederic called “Kanashii Ureshii” (English: Sad, Happy). Obviously some meaning gets lost in translation but I still think that anyone can appreciate this song, even in translation (though I find the Japanese lyrics to be more meaningful and beautiful) And, yes, I listen to a LOT of Japanese Pop, Rock, and Alternative this song is just one of many that I adore, enjoy:

Kanashii Ureshii


Original / Romaji Lyrics:

Makka na sen wo egaita chippoke na kokoro no hanashi
bokura no mirai wa doko ni mukatte hikaru no?
tsuzuki no sen wo egaita irozuite shimau tabi ni mabushii
sonna kokoro no rizumu wo tsunagidasu

Kanashii kanashii kanashii kanashii
ureshii ureshii ureshii ureshii
futatsu no kanjou ni yusaburaretewa
mada minu yukisaki wo terashidashiteku dake

Konomama uso demo ii kara yume oyogasete
tadashii tadashii ima wo sagashiteku
bokura wa mienai mirai wo shinjiteru
dakara tadashii tadashii ima wo sagashite wa hikatta

Makka na reeru tsunaida hottokenai kimi no hanashi
bokura no yogisha wa doko ni mukatte hashiru no?
kemuri ni maita omoi wa furimuite shimau tabi ni sabishii
sonna kokoro no biito wo tsunagidasu

Kanashii kanashii kanashii kanashii
ureshii ureshii ureshii ureshii
futatsu no kanjou ni yusaburaretewa
mada minu yukisaki ni susumi tsuzukeru dake

Sayonara
sayonara
kanashii dake no bokura no hanashi

Konomama uso demo ii kara yume oyogasete
tadashii tadashii ima wo sagashiteku
bokura wa mienai mirai wo shinjiteru
dakara tadashii tadashii ima wo sagashiteku
bokura wa mada minu yukisaki ni ashi wo mukete
kanashii kanashii kanashii yatte mo tomaranai

 

English Translation:

Drew a bright red line, it’s the story of a tiny heart
Where does our future lights up toward?
Drew the continuing line, it gets more blinding the more it gets coloured
I start linking such rhythms of the heart

Sad, sad, sad, sad
Happy, happy, happy, happy
Shaken by the two emotions,
I just illuminate the destination I can’t see yet

Let me swim in this dream, even if this is a lie
I’ll be searching for the correct, correct present
We’re believing in a future we can’t see
So searching for the correct, correct present, we shine

Linked bright red tracks, your story is one that can’t be left alone
Where does our night train run toward?
The mystified feelings get sadder every time I look back
I start linking such beats of the heart

Sad, sad, sad, sad
Happy, happy, happy, happy
Shaken by the two emotions,
I just keep going forward towards the destination I can’t see yet

Good bye
Good bye
Our story that’s nothing but sad

Let me swim in this dream, even if this is a lie
I’ll be searching for the correct, correct present
We’re believing in a future we can’t see
So I’ll be searching for the correct, correct present
We direct our feet to our destination that we haven’t seen yet
Even if we’re sad, sad, sad; it doesn’t stop
