In memory of hide #33

After the violation of hide’s grave, I’ve decided to dedicate this week to him; to honor his memory in times when others don’t. This is for all of you who loves hide.

Rest in peace, hide

Rest in peace, hide

This will be my last post in this “week of tribute” to hide. “In memory of hide #33”. Number 33. That’s how old he was when he died. And in May, that will be my age too.

I will end this by letting you listen to “Longing” and “Tears”.

I’ve had a lot of mixed feelings while writing about hide the last days. Mostly I’ve felt sadness. But I’ve also felt joy. That’s the two main feelings that hide evokes in me: sadness and joy. And together they are beautiful.

But unfortunately, I’ve also felt a lot of anger this time. Anger towards those who vandalized his grave mars 1st. I think it successively turns to sadness as well, but it will take a while to accept it.

hide, you will live forever in the hearts of your fans. We love you. Always, forever and ever.

Please, never forget about hide. I would like to quote Yoshiki: Dry your tears with love.

Originally, Yoshiki wrote “Tears” to his father who committed suicide when Yoshiki was 10 years old. Later, it has also been refereed to as a song to hide.

You’ll find the lyrics in bottom of this page.

X Japan and “Tears”


 


Lyrics to Longing

Lyrics translated into English

Even pain is seen in words, even tears gather.
Someday, memories will flourish.
That’s why it’s an unchained melody, hold my heart
I will still be alive tomorrow, even if I can no longer meet you.

Sing without you, I’ll sing without you,
Can’t you feel my heart, falling through the rain.
I sing without you, I’ll sing with out you,
Can’t you hold me tears, cause still I love you.
I cant face the thought of being alone,
I sing for the song still carries on.

Hold my heart, memories are still singing, even if I have no voice.
Sing without you, I’ll sing without you,
Can’t you feel my pain, there’s nothing I can do.
I still have a longing for your memory, even if the memory is only pain.
I won’t let my feelings show.
Now, I don’t want to be alone.
In the pouring rain, it all must be a dream, from tomorrow on…

Sing without you, I’ll sing without you,
Can’t you feel my heart, falling through the rain.
I sing without you, I’II sing without you,
Can’t you hold my tears, cause still I love you.
Sing without you, I’ll sing without you,
Can’t you feel my heart, falling through the rain.
I sing without you, I sing without you,
Can’t you hold my tears, cause still I love you.


Lyrics in roman letters
kizutsuke atta kotoba mo
kasaneta namida mo
itsuka wa omoide ni naru yo
dakara…togireta Melody
mune ni dakishimete ashita mo ikiru daro
anata ni aenakute mo

Sing without you
I’ll sing without you
Can’t you feel my heart
Falling through the rain

I sing without you
I’ll sing without you
Can’t you hold my tears
Cause, still I love you

I can’t face the thought of being alone
I sing for the song still carries on
mune ni dakishimete omoi wo utawasete
koe ni naranakute mo

Sing without you
I’ll sing without you
Can’t you feel my pain
There’s nothing I can do

I still have a longing for your memory
kizutsuku dake demo
kokoro wo tsutaetai yo

ima wa…hitori ni shinai de
furisosogu ame ni koware sona yume
ashita wo kanaderu kara

Sing without you
I’ll sing without you
Can’t you feel my heart
Falling through the rain

I’ll sing without you
I’ll sing without you
Can’t you hold my tears
Cause, Still I love you

I’ll sing without you
I’ll sing without you
Can’t you feel my heart
Falling through the rain

I’ll sing without you
I’ll sing without you
Can’t you hold my tears
Cause, Still I love you


Lyrics to Tears

Lyrics translated into English

Where should I go? I’m seperated from you
Now, I asked the time, that has passed
I dreampt of journeying into the too long night
Gazing up at the sky of a foreign land, I embraced loneliness

Flowing tears accumulate on the winds of time
I feel your unending sigh

Dry your tears with love
Dry your tears with love

Loneliness, your silent whisper
Fills a river of tears through the night
Memory, you never let me cry
And you, you never said good-bye
Sometimes our tears blinded the love
We lost our dreams along the way
But I never thought you’d trade your soul to the fates
Never thought you’d leave me alone

Time through the rain has set me free
Sands of time will keep your memory
Love everlasting fades away
Alive within your beatless heart

Dry your tears with love
Dry your tears with love

Flowing tears accumulate on the winds of time
The unending sadness changes into a blue rose

Dry your tears with love
Dry your tears with love

Flowing tears accumulate on the winds of time
The unending sadness changes into a blue rose

Dry your tears with love
Dry your tears with love


Lyrics in roman letters

doko ni yukebaii anata to hanarete
ima wa sugisatta toki ni toikakete
nagasugita yoru ni tabidachi wo yume mita
ikoki no sora mitsumete kodoku wo dakishimeta
nagareru namida wo toki no kaze ni kasanete
owaranai anata no toiki wo kanjite
DRY YOUR TEARS WITH LOVE
DRY YOUR TEARS WITH LOVE

LONELINESS YOUR SILENT WHISPER
FILLS A RIVER OF TEARS
THROUGH THE NIGHT
MEMORY YOU NEVER LET ME CRY
AND HEAR (you), YOU NEVER SAID GOOD-BYE
SOMETIMES OUR TEARS BLINDED THE LOVE
WE LOST OUR DREAMS ALONG THE WAY
BUT I NEVER THOUGHT YOU’D TRADE YOUR SOUL TO THE FATES
NEVER THOUGHT YOU’D LEAVE ME ALONE

TIME THROUGH THE RAIN HAS SET ME FREE
SANDS OF TIME WILL KEEP YOUR MEMORY
LOVE EVERLASTING FADES AWAY
ALIVE WITHIN YOUR BEATLESS HEART
DRY YOUR TEARS WITH LOVE
DRY YOUR TEARS WITH LOVE

nagareru namida wo toki no kaze ni kasanete
owaranai kanashimi wo aoi bara ni kaete (karete)
DRY YOUR TEARS WITH LOVE
DRY YOUR TEARS WITH LOVE
nagareru namida wo toki no kaze ni kasanete
owaranai anata wo (no) toiki wo kanjite
DRY YOUR TEARS WITH LOVE
DRY YOUR TEARS WITH LOVE
DRY YOUR TEARS WITH LOVE
