A song I love: Missing you with Glay

I really…. really, really… love this song.

And I get emotional just by thinking of it. I just want to sing along and swirl around, staring at the sky and get lost in one of my stupid fantasies.

Anyway… Glay was formed 1988.

Glay

A little bit more “visual” Glay back in the days.

Glay

Glay today (it rhymes! XD)

The singer – Teru – has a very special look and voice. The sound of his voice makes me warm inside. It makes me feel safe.

The single was released in November, year 2000.

Here is “Missing you” as promotion video

And here is “Missing you” as  live performance from year 2000


Lyrics to Missing You

Lyrics translated into English

Without waiting for winter, I miss you, oh no, my faithlessness is awoken
And my elusive heart can’t tell me, it’s making up for my loneliness
The warmth left in my room, my memories take the edge off of my wandering feelings
We can’t use words to bridge the gap between us anymore

Silent in the car going down the highway, I know this is goodbye
Why do you suppose the two of us were attracted to each other?

Like white snow that falls anywhere, the pieces of my dreams fall onto you
Reach out with your voice; like usual, that will be enough to cross the distance

The world is always harsh, so all the honest people feel like idiots
Flirtatious women and lying men, they’re like timid dogs

When I look back on it, we tried so hard to find
The shapeless letters that spell “Love”…

Love in springtime, the breath of flowers, the length of winter gets longer
I’ve lost you, the first snow of the winter falls deeply and yearningly
And now, the song that is still sung on the wind that blows without forgiveness, is erased

What can we measure the day sof youth that we spent together with?
Look upon this shocking era that is like a snow storm, without closing your eyes

Like white snow that falls anywhere, the pieces of my dreams fall onto you
Reach out with your voice; like usual, that will be enough to cross the distance
And now, I still ask for eternity in a thin voice, and am enclosed in sadness
And now, the song that is still sung on the wind that blows without forgiveness, is erased…

Snow is falling. I can’t say anymore.
I’m standing in the windy road.
You leave me alone. Don’t go away from me.
I wish to be in love again.


Lyrics in roman letters

Fuyu wo matazu ni I miss you, oh no
Kokoro ga wari wo yobiokosu
Soshite hisoka na mune tsutae kirezu
Kodoku wo aganau
Heya ni nokoru nukumori omoide ga
Tabidatsu kimochi niburaseru
Futari no aida ni dake kayou kotoba mo
Mou tsukau koto mo nai

Kokudou wo hashiru kuruma
Damari konde wakare wo shirinagara
Doushite futari hikareta no darou?

Dokomademo shiroi yuki no you na
Anata ni furu yume no tsubute
Koe wo todokete yo itsumo no you ni
Sore dake de kyori sae koeru

Seken wa itsumo shitataka dakara
Shoujikimono ga baka wo miru
Ki no aru furi no onna usotsuki na otoko
Kowagari na orita inu no you da

Furi kaereba bokura
Katachi no nai ai to iu moji wo
Korehodo madeni motomeyou to suru keredo…

Haru no koishisa yo hana no ibuki yo
Fuyu no nagasa ga tsunorasete
Anata wo nakushita hajimete no yuki wa tsuratsura to
Bojou ni ochiru

Ima wa mada yousha naku fukisusabu kaze ni
Utau uta mo kakikesarete
Bokura ga sugoshita seishun no hibi wo nande hakareru no?
Fubuki nimo nita gekidou no ima
Hitomi tojinaide mitsumeteite

Dokomademo shiroi yuki no you na
Anata ni furu yume no tsubute
Koe wo todokete yo itsumo no you ni
Soredake de kyori sae koeru

Ima wa mada koe mo hosoku
Towa wo kou kanashimi ni tozasarete iru

Ima wa mada yousha naku fukisusabu kaze ni
Utau uta mo kakikesarete…

Snow is falling
I can’t say anymore
I’m standing here,
The windy road
You leave me alone
Don’t go away from me
I wish to be in love again

Glay releases Justice & Guilty

One of the veteran-bands within the visual kei genre is Glay and they are one of my very favorites among the “oldies”.

Hisashi (guitar), Takuro (guitar) , Teru (vocals) and Jiro (bass)

They have been active since 1988! Wow… I was 8 years old by then…

So it really gladdens me that they still are going strong and recently released two new albums: Justice and Guilty.

New album: Justice

New album: Justice

That’s there 11th and 12th album… They surely been productive during the years.

The last song in the track-list of Justice is called “SMILE” and that’s what I definitely will do when I receive my CDs.

New album: Guilty
