When I checked my Hotmail account a while ago, I was thrilled to find out that an e-mail from the Utada mailing list that I’m subscribing to had arrived informing the new single by Utada and am real excited for the release of her coming new English album. Anyway, you can listen to her new single “Come Back To Me” at her official website. Also available at her MySpace. So check it out ! 🙂 Been a bit busy lately to blog. Will start re-blogging properly once I get settled with current higher priority matters. Peace.

Come Back To Me

Spacer

The rain falls on my windows
And the coldness runs through my soul
And the rain falls, oh, the rain falls
I don’t want to be alone

Spacer

I wish that I could photoshop on
Our bad memories
Because the flashbacks, oh the flashbacks
Won’t leave me alone

Spacer

If you come back to me
I’ll be all that you need
Baby, come back to me
Let me make up for what happened in the past

Spacer

(Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
Boy, you’re one in a million (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
You’re one in a million
(You’re one in a million)

Spacer

Memories I have of Manhattan
She goes shopping for new clothes
And she buys this, and she buys that
Just leave her alone
I wish that he would listen to her
Side of the story
It isn’t that bad, it isn’t that bad
And she’s wiser for it now

Spacer

I admit I cheated (admit I cheated )
Don’t know why I did it (why I did it)
But I do regret it (do regret it)
Nothing I can do or say can change the past

Spacer

(Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
Boy, you’re one in a million (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
You’re one in a million
(You’re one in a million)

Spacer

Everything I ever did
Heaven knows I’m sorry but
I was too young to see
You were always there for me
And my curiosity
Got the better half of me
Baby take it easy on me
Anything from A to Z
Tell me what you want to be
I open my heart to be
You are my priority
Can’t you see you’ve punished me
More than enough already
Baby take it easy on me

Spacer

Baby take it easy on me
Baby come back to me
Baby come back to me

Spacer

(Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
Boy you’re one in a million (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
You’re one in a million
(You’re one in a million)

Spacer

(Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
Boy, you’re one in a million (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
You’re one in a million
(One in a million)

SUPERMARKET FANTASY Kiss scene

Simply loved the kiss scene at the end of it, fits the title “SUPERMARKET FANTASY” very much indeed.

二足歩行してる空っぽの生きもの
無意識にリズムを刻んでいる
フルボリュームのL-Rに
萎んでた夢が膨らんでいく

Spacer

君が話してたの あそこのフレーズだろう?
まるで僕らのための歌のようだ
君は どんな顔して聞いてたの?
甘く切なく胸を焦がす響き

Spacer

メロディーラインが放ったカラフルな魔法のフレーズ
輝きを撒き散らしては僕らに夢を見せる
明日へ羽ばたく為に
過去から這い出す為に
Oh Rock Me Baby Tonight
ほらもっとボリュームを上げるんだ

Spacer

天気予報によれば 夕方からの
降水確率は上がっている
でも雨に濡れぬ場所を探すより
星空を信じ出かけよう

Spacer

雨に降られたら 乾いてた町が
滲んでキレイな光を放つ
心さえ乾いてなければ
どんな景色も宝石に変わる

Spacer

やがて音楽は鳴り止むと分かっていて
それでも僕らは今日を踊り続けてる
忘れないために
記憶から消すために
Oh Rock Me Baby Tonight
また新しいステップを踏むんだ

Spacer

メロディーラインが描いたカラフルな希望のフレーム
輝きを撒き散らしては僕らに夢を見せる
めぐり合う度に
サヨナラ告げる度に
Oh Rock Me Baby Tonight
さぁ踊ろうよ ボリュームをもっと上げるんだ

Lifehouse: You and Me

Spacer

Lifehouse: “You and Me”

Spacer

In Malay, I think this is what we refer as a “lagu jiwang“.

Spacer

What day is it? And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive
I can’t keep up and I can’t back down
I’ve been losing so much time

Spacer

‘Cause it’s you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it’s you and me and all other people
And I don’t know why, I can’t keep my eyes off of you

Spacer

One of the things that I want to say just aren’t coming out right
I’m tripping on words
You’ve got my head spinning
I don’t know where to go from here

Spacer

‘Cause it’s you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it’s you and me and all other people
And I don’t know why, I can’t keep my eyes off of you

Spacer

There’s something about you now
I can’t quite figure out
Everything she does is beautiful
Everything she does is right

Spacer

‘Cause it’s you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it’s you and me and all other people
And I don’t know why, I can’t keep my eyes off of you
and me and all other people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it’s you and me and all other people
And I don’t know why, I can’t keep my eyes off of you

Spacer

What day is it?
And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive

A message from Naotaro Moriyama

『生きてることが辛いなら』

“When life’s too painful to live on” by Naotaro Moriyama

生きてることが辛いなら
いっそ小さく死ねばいい
恋人と親は悲しむが
三日と経てば元通り
気が付きゃみんな年取って
同じとこに行くのだから

生きてることが辛いなら
わめき散らして泣けばいい
その内夜は明けちゃって
疲れて眠りに就くだろう
夜に泣くのは赤ん坊
だけって決まりはないんだし

生きてることが辛いなら
悲しみをとくと見るがいい
悲しみはいつか一片の
お花みたいに咲くという
そっと伸ばして両の手で
摘み取るんじゃなく守るといい

何もないとこから
何もないとこへと
何もなかったかのように
巡る生命だから

生きてることが辛いなら
嫌になるまで生きるがいい
歴史は小さなブランコで
宇宙は小さな水飲み場
生きてることが辛いなら
くたばる喜びとっておけ
生きてることが辛いなら

***

A song dedicated to my juniors in Japan

You maybe going through tough times now
and may think that living life itself is too painful
but just simply remember to never give up
for a beautiful future will definitely awaits
if you keep your heart strong …

So, simply move on & listen to every single words in this song.
Found them real meaningful & simply wanted to share.
Seniors do go through ups and downs
so we understand that juniors go through them as well.
We’ll give our full support, when you need it, just simply let us know.

“Little Wonders” from ‘Meet the Robinsons’

“Little Wonders” by Rob Thomas

From the movie ‘Meet the Robinsons‘ by Walt Disney Studios

Another simple heart-warming animation movie from Disney

Little Wonders

Let it go,
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don’t you know
The hardest part is over
Let it in,
Let your clarity define you
In the end
We will only just remember how it feels


Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders,
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away,
But these small hours,
These small hours still remain

Let it slide,
Let your troubles fall behind you
Let it shine
Until you feel it all around you
and I don’t mind
If it’s me you need to turn to
We’ll get by,
It’s the heart that really matters in the end

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders,
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away,
But these small hours,
These small hours still remain

All of my regret
Will wash away some how
But I cannot forget
The way I feel right now

In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists & turns of fate
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away but these small hours
These small hours, still remain,
Still remain
These little wonders
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These little wonders still remain

This song was really meaningful and it definitely hit the right spot for the movie when it started playing at the end before the credits came in. I was totally wrong when I underestimated by thinking it was just some lame kid show but certain kid show can turn out to be far more meaningful to grown ups like me when we could comprehend the significance when comparing to our own lives.

The first part “Let it go, let it roll right off your shoulder, don’t you know, the hardest part is over” really got me and things had been real rough and tough on me lately but I guess I should learn to just simply “let it go and let it roll right of my shoulder for I should know that the hardest part is over”. I understand everything happens for a reason and clearly, there is a reason for me to watch this movie at this time when everything seems to have been awful meaningless.

The final words by Mr. Walt Disney himself, “Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious … and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” were real meaningful as well and everything seems so significant to me at this moment. This may sound crappy but I guess I am definitely a person who was “raised up” with Disney movies (I remember how excited I was the moment I stepped into the dreamland, Tokyo Disneyland for the very first time and met up with Mickey Mouse). Anyway, “Keep moving forward” was the key lesson that this movie wanted to let everyone know.

Here in my home

Here in my home

Lyrics: Here in my home

Hold on brother hold on
The road is long. We’re on stony ground
But I’m strong. You ain’t heavy

Oh there’s a misspoken truth that lies
Colors don’t bind, oh no.
What do they know? They speak falsely.

Chorus:
Here in my home
I’ll tell you what its all about
There’s just one hope here in my heart
One Love undivided
That’s what it’s all about
Please won’t you fall in one by one by one [with me]?

Push back sister won’t you push back?
Love won’t wait. Just keep pushing on.
Yes I’m strong. You ain’t heavy.

Oh don’t you worry about that…
What we have the shadows can’t deny
Don’t you know it’s now or never?

Colors don’t bind, oh no.

Rap:
[Malay: TRANSLATED]

Years of fears and years of tribulation
The heart keeps searching for that endless devotion

[Chinese: TRANSLATED]
Hand in hand we’ll march like blood brothers
I speak for my people hope we’ll find peace forever

[Tamil: TRANSLATED]
May the road ahead quench my thirst for success
May the road behind echo a song of the blessed

[English]
So I will let it be known yes I feel it in my bones
No matter where I roam this is home sweet home
Sing!

A song that every citizen of Malaysia should support. Just got to know about this project from my junior Calvin’s blog and it gave me the shivers when I listened to the song created by the talented artistes we have back home. It is true that finally it lies in the hands of us, the “rakyat”, to decide what we can do for our motherland, a place where we call home. Fellow Malaysians, enjoy it and help to spread the word, the message of love for the unity of our people. The song and the video clip “Here in my home” is available here for download and visit the website to know more about the project.
