The Sunlit Garden (My Lyrics)

I forgot if I've walked into a thread like this somewhere in this forum. If there's another, please kindly redirect me. Thank you.

Have any of you been tempted to write lyric for the song? Here's my first attempt, trying from Miki's POV. I give up the rhyming in the end to make the song bring a bit more message. Reviews are always more than welcome.

The Sunlit Garden (My Lyrics)

Do you remember All those time that we share
Pleasently together Summer and winter?
Do you remember That time we caught a hare
Giving it all our care Chose to go back to Mother Nature

You cried so hard Not letting go
That's why we played The piano
Under the soothing shade of the woods

Why we have to move Onto this horizon
Why those days that I loved Can't go on and on
I only treasure This single bit in heart
It's what pushed me to shine Day after day night and after night
Yes, I'd like to catch That shining past.


生命是奇蹟,但是為什麼生活是痛苦的?

Re: The Sunlit Garden (My Lyrics)

Oooh . . . I didn't know there is a self-invent english lyrics thread for SKU music emot-smile

Here goes my version of the Sunlit Garden --
Music:  As played at the end of Ep 37
Lyrics: As sung by Kaoru Kozue in Seinen Kakumei Utena Part 6

Won’t you play for me
Our special melody
And let your fingers dance
On piano keys

All the birds and bees
Are chasing butterflies
They’re dancing endlessly
In that endless dream we used to hold”

The melody you wrote for me
With the wind so cold on our cardboard scene
Won’t you stay with me my one and only”

Let me sing for you
Our special melody
I’ll be there when you need
Another soul to help you stay afloat

Maybe we can carry the weight of two
Two hapless fools

What'd you guys think?

Re: The Sunlit Garden (My Lyrics)

Sorry for the double post, but I just couldn't resist . . .

Rinbu Revolution: Charactermobile Remix by your truly

Though the u-turns and the dark cranks on the highway of life,
(backup: Takes a long, long time!)
with the beaten paths we’ve past now all falling apart;
hold onto me,
take my revolution!

Back in that stuffy garage, you and I together,
dreaming of maybe one day we can outrun all those obstacles in life
and find what we’ve been looking for.
(backup: Many times!)

Our love today, blooms like a summer rose;
we’re the envy of all whom we know.
But will it fade, or will it stay?
That’s something we’ve got to work on.
(backup: Can it bloom forever?)

It’s a game rigged by the big shots so they never can lose
as they drive the helpless ones to the edge.
With you and me side by side fighting right back,
I’d dare say, we’d still got our chance!

In the mean time all the b.s. they’ve been throwing our way,
can’t change how our conviction’s here to stay.
In my heart is your key that keeps me from rust;
get running, full speed revolution!

Re: The Sunlit Garden (My Lyrics)

These aren't my lyrics, but I found these on a website. They're for Nemuro Kinenkan and I liked them, so I saved them. Unfortunately the website went down. emot-frown Here are the lyrics:

Without past or future, I embraced that present
   Will this world lose its way to a painful extent?
   Autumn changes, becomes winter, and I forget spring and summer
   In this bare body

   Though I wish to reveal a confession in my shining tears,
   The eternal "secret" was lost in an unknown place
   Ah, wherever, where is this, why me, who is there
   In the endless darkness

   (I want to know...)

   Unhurt memories are the leavings of nobility
   I wished for the return of a beautiful past
   Is it possible for me to fall in love if a beauty arrives?
   I can only do it, and for your sake, I will surely grasp
   Eternity (when everything has already ended)
 
   "If only I could return to the me of that time," is it?
   If that prayer isn't answered, what shall you do?
   Yes, I understand; you also have bonds that you cannot release
   You are the same as me

   Even if I sacrifice my soul, she will not return
   If that is true, my wishes will twist into a dark parody
   But right now, once again, if it ends, what shall I do?
   I do not want to die


Rose tint my world...
Keep me safe from my trouble and pain.

HonorableShadow, Thanks for putting these up for us!  Nerd that I am, I tried singing the lyrics along to the OST score (it's the one where Mikage thinks back on his past with Mamiya, right?), but the words don't seem to quite "fit" with the music.  Do you know if it is supposed to be sung in English?

Re: The Sunlit Garden (My Lyrics)

No problem!  Haha, I did that too. emot-tongue It actually had some Japanese lyrics with it:

   Kako to mirai nashi    sono ima wo dakishimeteta
   Kurushii hodo    kono sekai ga mayotte iru ka
   Aki ga kawaru    fuyu ni naru    haru to natsu wo wasureru
   Kono suhada de

   Kagayaku namida ni shokuhaku wo    tsugetai kedo
   Eien no "himitsu" ga nakunatta    shiranu tokoro ni
   Ah    dokomademo    koko ha itsu    naze boku yo    dare ga iru
   Hatenu yami de

   (Shiritai...)

   Kizutsukanu omoide ha kedakasa no nokoshita mono
   Utsukushii kako no modore akogareta
   Koi ni shite ariuru ka    reijin raiga nara
   Dekiru dake anata no tame ni boku ha kitto eien wo
   Te ni iru (subete ha mou owatta to)
 
   Ano toki no jibun ni modoreru noni tte deshou
   Sono inori kanawanai anata ha dou shimasu ka
   Ee    wakarimasu    anata ni mo    hourenai    kizuna aru
   Boku to onaji

   Boku no tamashii wo sonaetemo kanojo ha kaeranai
   Moshi sou nara nozomi ga yugamu kurai parodi ni
   Demo ima sugu    mou ichido    owattara    doushiyou
   Shinitakunai

Re: The Sunlit Garden (My Lyrics)

Just created a song that pretty much summed up the cruel things that Dios said to Utena in ep 39 out of the famous Bee Gees hit Melody Fair

Warning: MISOGYNISTIC overtones as expressed by Dios the SKU character, ones that somehow closely parallels the song Melody Fair (could Ikuhara have been a Bee Gees Fan?).  Don't read if this disturbs your sensitivities. 

From Dios/Akio to Utena during the Duel called Revolution:
Who was that girl with the crying face,
Looking at funeral signs?
She thought her life was an ended race.
Into the coffin there she lied.

Utena-chan won't you comb your hair?
You can be beautiful too.
Utena-chan, remember you're only a princess.
Utena-chan, remember you're only a child.

Ah...

Who was that girl dueling in the sky,
Watching the Castle came down?
Utena, life isn't like the rose.
It's just like a merry-go-round.

Utena-chan won't you wear your dress?
You can be beautiful too.
Utena-chan, remember you're only a woman.
Utena-chan, remember you're only a girl.


Original Melody Fair lyrics:
Who is that girl with the crying face,
Looking at millions of signs?
She knows that life is a running race.
Her face shouldn't show any sign.

Melody Fair won't you comb your hair?
You can be beautiful too.
Melody Fair, remember you're only a woman.
Melody Fair, remember you're only a girl.

Ah...

Who is that girl at the window pane,
Watching the rain falling down?
Melody, life isn't like the rain.
It's just like a merry-go-round.

Melody Fair won't you comb your hair?
You can be beautiful too.
Melody Fair, remember you're only a woman.
Melody Fair, remember you're only a girl.

Ah...
