X Japan – Endless Rain
I’m currently (or supposed to be) planning my itinerary for Melbourne to include in my visa application for my Australia visit and while looking for events I might possibly go to, I somehow ended up checking out X Japan again and then ended up watching videos on YouTube.
I remember when I first heard this song – Endless Rain. It was one of the first songs I heard from X Japan. While listening to it, although I couldn’t understand much of the Japanese parts, the English parts were enough to make me teary eyed and tell me what song’s mood was.
I think a lot of X Japan’s songs, especially the ballads, are really depressing. I tend to listen to them more when I’m feeling low like this.
What am I doing here? What am I doing? Although I think I know the answer, everyday I still ask these questions to myself. Watching the MYR vs PHP go down, counting my transportation expenses to and from work everyday, things I need to get done for my application that is not even 100% going to get approved…
Anyway, I found a nice translation of Endless Rain. Whoever translated it, thanks. The video I posted is from the Last Live concert which I think is their best version. The spoken part was skipped :(
I’m walking in the rain,
though everything seems to be hurting me for some reason.
There is only nothing.
Just kill me now … as I roam forever.
Until I can forget your love.
To me sleep is a confusing, narcotic
that only quiets the beating heart.
All my love seems to flow from my body like a heart felt memory.
I keep my love for you to myself.
*Endless rain, fall on my heart In this wounded soul.
Let me forget, all of the hate, all of the sadness,
(Days of joy, days of sadness slowly pass me by.
As I try to hold you, you are vanishing before me.
You’re just an illusion.
When I am awake, my tears have dried in the sands of sleep.
I’m a rose blooming in the desert. )
It’s a dream, I’m in love with you.
Hold me warmly in your arms.
I awake from my dream
I can’t find my way without you
The dream is over.
I can no longer hear the voice of your gentle words.
Floating off tear stained walls.
So awakening in the morning, I’ll move into my dreams …
until I can forget your love.
Endless rain, fall on my heart, in this wounded soul.
Let me forget, all of the hate, all of the sadness.
Endless rain, let me stay a memory in your heart.
Let me take in your tears, take in your memories.
