[Ah, I love it when Ashin writes about his lyrics! From his blog on June 4.)
June, the flowers once blossomed in youth and now have spent their beauty, leaving no regrets.
Taking photographs of flowers that will soon pass away is more meaningful than taking them of the ones in full bloom.
Everyone says you take songwriting so seriously, have you ever just thrown a song together.
Oh yes, especially in the summer.
However, you'll probably guess the wrong song.
That summer, I mean, those hazy lyrics, I only took about ten minutes.
Not only to misread them with the mind of a poet, but even to battle a beautiful misunderstanding.
In a burst of energy, wrote them in eight minutes
and then had two minutes left to revise a bit.
I rarely write these kinds of hazy lyrics
Because I always want to play with the music a little while longer.
Just like a flower
Wants to linger in summer longer,
It's hot today,
So just grab anything to listen to,
It's just thrown together. : )
That high wall will fall
The red light will be extinguished, time will slant
Before your eyes, before my eyes
A few words become ardent
I’ve fallen in love with the fiery left-click
It takes me to a different word
One that has you
I’ve passed through zigzagging information
Into the expanse of your heart
Started to risk utopia
Your story, sweet and fresh
Wanting more, will you give it
Standing here, this cold world
Ceaselessly dreary, massive lies
The soul is stranded
[Hmm, there's a song translation that's due for revision... I'm going to get the whole site reworked this summer. Erm, maybe. But I'm going to try...]
