Some lyrics to music I like:

Miz – Not You

Is it me in the mirror
(Oh) I can’t believe this is my reflection
Suddenly, I’m not familiar
With these eyes that are supposed to be mine
They were never crying before
But things aren’t the same anymore

* Who’s gonna wipe away my tears when I feel lonely
Who’s gonna take away this pain that I fear
Who’s gonna guarantee that my heart won’t be breaking in two
Not you

Is it me in this bedroom
Cause I can’t believe waking up without you
I’m not the same since you left me
And there ain’t nothing that my love can do
Even though I’m trying I can’t ignore
That things aren’t the same as before

* repeat

Whoever is here to ease me
When I’m feeling blue
Not you

* repeat…

Whose gonna come for me
Not you

Suteki Da Ne (Isn’t it Beautiful) (My FAVORITE song 🙂
By: Nubou Uematsu (From Final Fantasy X)
I posted these before but I found ‘official’ lyrics.

Romanji:

kaze ga yoseta kotoba ni
oyoida kokoro
kumo ga hakobu ashita ni
hazunda koe

tsuki ga yureru kagami ni
furueta kokoro
hoshi ga nagare koboreta
yawarakai namida

suteki da ne
futari te wo tori aruketa nara
ikitai yo
kimi no machi ie ude no naka

sono mune
karada azuke
yoi ni magire
yumemiru

kaze wa tomari kotoba wa
yasashii maboroshi
kumo wa yabure ashita wa
tooku no koe

tsuki ga nijimu kagami wo
nagareta kokoro
hoshi ga yurete koboreta
kakusenai namida

suteki da ne
futari te wo tori aruketa nara
ikitai yo
kimi no machi ie ude no naka

sono kao
sotto furete
asa ni tokeru
yumemiru

English:

My heart was swimming
in words gathered by the wind
My voice bounded
into a cloud-carried tomorrow

My heart trembled
in the moon-swayed mirror
Soft tears
spilled with a stream of stars

Isn’t it beautiful?
If we could walk, hand in hand,
I’d want to go
to your town, your home, in your arms

I dream of being
against your chest
my body in your keeping
disappearing into the evening

Words halted by wind are
a gentle illusion
A tomorrow torn by clouds is
the voice of a distant place

My heart that had been
in a moon-blurred mirror that flowed
Those stars that trembled and spilled
cannot hide my tears

Isn’t it beautiful?
If we could walk, hand in hand,
I’d want to go
to your town, your home, in your arms

My dream of
your face
that I softly touch
melts in the morning

Passion and Sanctuary

Passion

Romanji:

Omoidaseba haruka haruka
Mirai wa doko made mo kagayaiteta
Kirei na aozora no shita de
Bokura wa sukoshi dake obieteita

Natsukashii iro ni mado ga somaru

Mae wo muitereba
Mata aemasu ka
Mirai wa doko e demo tsudzuiteiru n’ da
Ooki na kanban no shita de
Jidai no utsuroi wo mite itai na

Nido to aenu
Hito ni basho ni
Mado wo akeru

Omoidaseba haruka haruka
Mirai wa doko made mo kagayaiteta
Kirei na aozora no shita de
Bokura wa itsumademo nemutte ita

Zutto mae ni suki datta hito
Fuyu ni kodomo ga umareru sou da
Mukashi kara no kimari goto wo
Tama ni utagaitaku naru yo
Zutto wasurerarenakatta no
Nengajou wa shashin tsuki kana
Watashitachi ni dekinakatta koto wo
Totemo natsukashiku omou yo

Aozora no shita

English:

When I remember back far, far
The future was forever shining
Below the brillianty blue sky
We were only frightened a little

This window is stained with sorely missed colours

If I keep on looking forward
Will I meet you again?
Because the future really continues on forever
Underneath a large sign
I want to watch time change

Towards the people, the places
I will never see again
I open this window

When I remember back far, far
The future was forever shining
Below the pretty blue sky
We slept endlessly

The person I loved long ago
Is to have a child in winter
Sometimes I just want to doubt
Our promises made long ago
I could never forget
I wonder if your New Year’s card will have a photo
I just look back, and miss
All the things we could never do

Below the blue sky

Sanctuary
(wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I) // “I need more affection than you know” backwards
In you and I there’s a new land,
Angels in flight
(wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I) // “I need more affection than you know” backwards
My sanctuary, my sanctuary, yeah
Where fears and lies melt away
Music inside
(wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I) // “I need more affection than you know” backwards
What’s left of me
What’s left of me now

I watch you fast asleep,
All I fear means nothing

In you and I there’s a new land,
Angels in flight
(wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I) // “I need more affection than you know” backwards
My sanctuary, my sanctuary, yeah
Where fears and lies melt away
Music inside
(wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I) // “I need more affection than you know” backwards
What’s left of me
What’s left of me

(snwod dna spu ynam oS) // “So many ups and downs” backwards
My heart’s a battleground
(snoitome eurt deen I) // “I need true emotions” backwards
(wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I) // “I need more affection than you know” backwards
(snoitome eurt deen I) // “I need true emotions” backwards

You show me how to see,
That nothing is whole
and nothing is broken

In you and I there’s a new land
Angels in flight
(wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I) // “I need more affection than you know” backwards
My sanctuary, my sanctuary, yeah
Where fears and lies melt away
Music inside
(wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I) // “I need more affection than you know” backwards
What’s left of me
What’s left of me now
My fears, my lies
Melt away…
(wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I) // “I need more affection than you know” backwards
