This song means so much more now that I’ve seen the movie ‘Taiyou no uta’
refer to my christian drama/anime review blog for more details 🙂

Here is the song
[To see the Japanese version and hear the song go to this lyrics site :)]

Translation Good-bye Days

So I’ll go to you now, I’ve made up my mind
I want to play you the song in my pocket

I quietly turned up the volume to make sure

Oh good-bye days
I feel like things are changing now
So long yesterday and before
I have a clumsy tenderness by my side
~With you

I pass you one earphone
And in that moment, it plays slowly

I am I loving you right? Sometimes I get confused

Oh good-bye days
Now what’s in my heart has begun to change, alright
I have a clumsy tenderness by my side
~With you

I don’t want to have sad thoughts if I can help it
But they’re bound to come, right?
When they do, I’ll smile and say
Yeah hello! I hope I can call you
My friend…

When we sing the same song
Be by my side, I wish
I’m glad I found that clumsy tenderness

…Good-bye days

A friend asked me a few weeks ago.. what cd was my favorite..
but I dont really have one..
it all depends on my mood..
she told me to name three cds..

I thought about it later.. and .. I don’t have a particular cd
but I do not mind listening to songs that reflect my mood or my thoughts or my personality..
I think that’s what makes me like a song a lot..
and of course, the melody can’t be too repetitive or cliched.. cos then I’d start to get sick of it or cringe it..
I can’t listen to one song for too long.. I get afraid that I’d hate it in the end 😛

But if you have to narrow it to Cds.. then those that I won’t get sick of that easily are:
Breakaway – Kelly Clarkson
Fumbling into Ecstacy, Afterglow – Sarah Mclachlan
Best of – The Corrs
Innocent Eyes – Delta goodrem [selected]
Shades of Purple – M2M [selected/mood]
What to do with daylight – Brooke Fraser [selected]
Incomplete – BSB [selected]
Damien Leith’s first album of covers – selected [I only like his voice haha not that i’ve heard of his actual songs though :P]
Michelle Branch’s First album! Spirit Room

Growing to like cds/artists – but need to listen to more thoroughly:
The Fray, Lifehouse, Nickelback, Chris Tomlin, Albertine – Brooke Fraser, Sakamoto Maaya’s new album from Japan, Imogen Heap, Yui, Jason Mraz – cool stuff!

Old favorites that I listen only when I’m in the right mood lol..cos some are just cringy or remind me of things..:
James Blunt, Veronicas, Guy Sebastian, BSB oldschool, Evanescence, Savage Garden, Utada Hikaru, Ayumi Hamasaki, Musicals of sorts, furniture music, OSTs/soundtracks

Ahhh forgot about this… hehe

But here I go with some memory dumps of recent lines from songs 🙂
atm it’s a jap one 😛
called Passion by utada
omoi dase wa,…mitaa.. boku ni wa… [mostly music cos I can’t remember the lyrics :P]

from High School musical 2[This is gonna be one of those songs I’ll be able to sing off by heart :)]:
I gotta say what’s on my mind,
something about us, doesn’t seem right, these days,
life keeps getting in the way,
whenever we try somehow the plan, is always rearranged..
It’s so hard to say, but I gotta do what’s best for me, you’ll be ok,..

I go to move on and be who I am,
I just don’t belong here,
I hope you understand..
We might find our place in this world someday,
but at least for now,
I gotta go my own way..
Avril Lavigne’s Innocence:
This innocence, is brilliant,
I hope that it would stay,
This moment, is perfect..
please don’t go away,
I need you now..
so hold on to this won’t you let it pass you by..
I’m yours – Jason Mraz
I won’t hesitate no more, no more…
It can not wait, I’m yours..
..listen to the music with the moment maybe on sing with me.. I love[ala] peaceful melody..
No need to complicate our time is sure, this is our fate I’m yours..
Garnet – Oku Hanako – a friend’s favorite song 🙂
Even if someday I like someone else,
You will always be special and important to me,
like the seasons which come again..

Lately I’ve been downloading some songs from itunes 😀 cos I got an itunes gift card from a friend for doing photography work with her 😀
and then I think because of that It also lead to buying various albums 😛
I found some albums to be cheaper if I bought them in a shop and others cheaper on itunes – if I only wanted one or two songs etc..
so what I got so far are old albums as well as a few new..
Brooke Fraser – Albertine
Sarah Mclachlan – Solace
Kelly Clarkson – Thankful
Chris Tomlin – Arriving
Garage Hymnal – Take my life

Currently Bidding:
Lifehouse – No name face

Bought on itunes – some stuff that I had liked before and heard on radio or recommended by friends or remixes[some weren’t that good].

Utada Hikaru – remixes – Addicted to you, Hikari, Passion – game ver, Wait & See
Jars of Clay – Waiting for the world to fall
Avril Lavigne – My happy ending, When you’re gone
Lifehouse – You and me, Hanging by a moment
Kelly Clarkson – remix acappella – Walk away
Rachel Yamagata – Quiet, Be be loved
Delta Goodrem – Believe Again, In this life, Bare Hands
Ne-yo – Because of You

The sucky thing about itunes is, once you buy it, and if the song sucks, you can’t get the money back 😦

Fields of Gold – [lol I mistyped god just then..:P] Eva Cassidy

Quiet – Rachael Yamagata

“I don’t expect anything..”

Those two are on my winamp alarm playlist whenever I use it.. and the melodies are really nice and stick in my mind.. not the lyrics yet, hehe

Edit: And then I thought today the song by Ayumi kinda matches the music of Quiet a bit..altho it’s not as quiet hehe ..

The song is called Pride ..

I would love to do a mix of songs that sound alike 😀

YAy I just did! :P…
boo it doesn’t let me embed.. so here it is:
