A song I love: Blurry Eyes with L’arc~en~ciel

L’arc~en ciel has made so many great songs and I’m so happy that I once had the opportunity to see them live.

This song is old, as you can see in the video. Hyde can’t have been that old at that performance. I know he got a hideous perm, but look behind that. ^_-

This song is a masterpiece in many ways and I never get tired of it.


Blurry Eyes Lyrics

Lyrics translated into English

Carried on a wind
from far away,
no matter how many times I try to say these words,
they never reach you.
Once again, my eyes stare somewhere
out the window.

This foreboding hasn’t changed, I still feel it.
Those days are getting blurry…

Seeing through
blank eyes
like a caged bird,
the light of the afternoon sun is just like
the light that shines on you
from outside.

This foreboding hasn’t changed, I still feel it.
Those days are becoming blurry…

I feel the changing season
will see my promise broken.
Even if I reach out with my hands,
my heart will stay distant.

(Why do you stare at the sky with your blurry eyes?)
(Why do you stare at the sky with your blurry eyes?)

I feel the changing season
will see my promise broken.
Even if I reach out with my hands,
my heart will stay distant.

In the changing season,
the one precious to me
looked back toward me with those eyes,
sighing softly.

(Your blurry eyes) …your blurry eyes
(Your blurry eyes) …kokoro wa
(Your blurry eyes) …hanarete
(Your blurry eyes) …yuku

(Your blurry eyes) …your blurry eyes
(Your blurry eyes) …My heart
(Your blurry eyes) …will stay
(Your blurry eyes) …distant.


Lyrics in roman letters

tooku no kaze wo mi ni matou anata ni wa
todokanai kotoba narabete mite mo
mata shisen wa dokoka mado no mukou

kawaranai yokan wa tsuzuiteiru

kago no naka no tori no you na utsuro na me ni
fureteiru gogo no hizashi wa maru de
anata wo soto e sasou hikari

kawaranai yokan wa tsuzuiteiru

meguri kuru toki ni yakusoku wa ubaware sou
kono ryoute sashi nobete mo kokoro wa hanarete

Why do you stare at the sky
with your blurry eyes?

meguri kuru toki ni yakusoku wa ubaware sou
kono ryoute sashi nobete mo kokoro wa hanarete

meguri kuru toki ni taisetsu na hito wa mou…
furi muita sono hitomi ni chiisana tameiki

Your blurry eyes… your blurry eyes
Your blurry eyes… kokoro wa
Your blurry eyes… hanarete
Your blurry eyes… yuku

Everyday is Halloween

I know it’s spring but everyday is Halloween for a jrocker, right? ^^

Last Halloween, Hyde (Vamps / L’arc~en~ciel) led a Music Project dedicated this holiday. With 13 other famous visual kei artists, he created the group “Halloween Junky Orchestra”. I simply love their costumes and their song “Halloween party”, so that’s why I choose to bring this up now, even though Halloween is far away.

The members of Halloween Junky Orchestra was:


I love to watch their pictures and I love the “Halloween Party”-PV. Let’s enjoy it! ^^

A song I love: Daybreak’s Bell with L’arc~en~ciel

First time I heard this song was a gloomy day. It was cloudy and dark outside.

At that time I lived in a very small town in Sweden.

That day I was very depressed, and to handle my inner pain I went out for a run. I headed to the mountain which top was covered by fog.
I was soooo low. But when I looked up at the mountain, gloomy and grey, Daybreak’s Bell started to play on my iPod and a sudden ray of sunlight broke through the fog.

I got swept away by the beautiful melody and Hyde’s strong and beautiful voice. I kept staring at the lightbeam – and suddenly I got filled by hope. It was such an overwhelming feeling that I started to laugh. It felt so good.

Since that, this song has symbolized “hope” to me. It’s such a beautiful song that I never get tired of.


Daybreak’s Bell lyrics

Lyrics translated into English

Hey, haven’t you seen another shape besides this one? That’s so sad
To you, there’s no desire to die or to kill, oh, please

Drink it up, even the fate, to the sinking sea
My wishes, ride on the wind, ring the bell of the daybreak
Just like a bird My wishes over their airspace
Cross through the countless number of waves, stand against tomorrow,
protecting you My life I trade in for your pain
Stop the dispute!

Hey, why people pile up the repeating mistakes?
No one is evolving, this flowing blood, I loathe it most
To judge each other by instinct, in this no-one-around earth

If the clear future has come, the flower plants will also
dwell in the weapons My wishes over their airspace
Anyone, shake me up, wake me up from the nightmare
If it comes true My life I trade in for your pain
How long until my prayers reach the sky?

Now the morning glow pictures the ocean and me

My wishes, ride on the wind, ring the bell of the daybreak
Just like a bird My wishes over their airspace
Cross through the countless number of waves, stand against tomorrow,
protecting you My life I trade in for your pain
Flap your wings without turning around,
bring along these thoughts, fly to that sky
The future can’t be defeated by anyone


Lyrics in roman letters

Nee konna katachi no deai shika nakatta no? Kanashii ne
Anata ni shindemo ayamete hoshiku mo nai onegai
Unmei sae nomikomade shizumisouna umi e to

Negai yo kaze ni notte yoake no kane wo narase yo
Tori no you ni My wishes over their airspace
Musuu no nami wo koe Asu en tachimukau anata wo
mamoritamae My life I trade in for your pain
Arasoi yo tomare!

Nee hito wa doushite kurikaeshi ayamachi wo kasaneteku?
Shinka shinai dare ni mo nagareru kono chi ga daikirai
Honnou de sabakiau dare no demo nai daichi de

Sumiwataru mirai ga kita nara kusabana mo
heiki ni yadoru darou My wishes over their airspace
Dare ga yuriokoshite warui yume kara samashite yo
Kanau no nara My life I trade in for your pain
Dore dake inoreba ten ni todoku?

Ima asayake ga unabarato watashi wo utsusu

Negai yo kaze ni notte yoake no kane wo narase yo
Tori no you ni My wishes over their airspace
Musuu no nami wo koe Asu e tachimukau anata wo
mamoritamae My life I trade in for your pain
Furimukazu habatake kono omoi wo hakonde ano sora wo tondeku
Mirai wa dare ni mo uchiotosenai
