Life must go on

Barusan saja, daku mendapat sebuah rekomendasi lagu J-Pop yang berlirik "dalam" dari sobatku,
mbak Isti (Mbakyuuu!!! ^___^), yang sedang berjuang menuntut ilmu di negeri Jepun. Lagunya itu dinyanyikan oleh Ikimonogakari, berjudul "YELL".

Setelah kubaca translasi liriknya, memang terasa maknanya. Bahwa hidup itu harus terus berjalan, walau itu terasa berat. Terlebih ketika kita harus meninggalkan zona nyaman dan harus menuju tempat baru yang belum kita ketahui seperti apa kehidupannya. Lebih lanjut, sila baca arti lirik J-Pop tersebut :D!


YELL
by : Ikimonogakari

I look back on the footprint I’ve left again and again

Thinking “Where is ‘me’ now?â€?
I scooped uo the dead leaves in my arms
And drew my dreams
on the autumn window with my numb fingertips

I have wings but I can’t fly

I’m afraid of being alone, it’s too painful
We’re leaving behind those days of cuddling in the gentle sun
And walking on to our lonely dreams

Goodbye isn’t a sad word

It’s a yell that connects us to our respective dreams
I’ll hold the days we spent together in my heart
And take off alone to my next sky

Why do we get impatient for an answer

And search for ourselves in darkness so deep that we get lost in it?
When we have the tears and straightforward smiles
Of just loving someone, right here?

When it comes to our real selves, we get off track, get confused

And think it’s made up by other people’s words
We’ll take hold of our natural weakness and the strength to face it
And start running to tomorrow for the first time

Maybe every time we say goodbye to someone

We can change, we can become stronger
Even if we take off to different skies
This love won’t stop, it still remains in my heart

Ever since I realised there’s no such thing as eternity

The day we laughed together, and the day we sang together
Have become strongly, deeply carved into my heart
That’s why you, that’s why we
Aren’t anybody else, can’t be beaten by anyone
We raised our voices and promised that we’d live our lives our way
Each of us chose our own path

Goodbye isn’t a sad word

It’s a yell that connects us to our respective dreams
Until we meet again someday
I won’t forget this pride, my friend, into the sky

We have a word that we share

It’s a yell that connects our voices, one heart to another
I’ll hold the days we spent together in my heart
And take off alone to my next sky
