TIME FOR YOU by Rico Blanco (Guitar Chords)

CAPO 2nd Fret
Intro: D- F#m- G

D                                          F#m
Once i was missing but you found me

G                                               A
Lost in a maze of my fears and anxieties

D                                          F#m
Once i was drowning but you got me high

G                                                               A
Now I’m on top of the world, surfing with satellites

CHORUS:

D                 F#m                    G    A
Your love soothes and cools

D         F#m
Makin’ everything alright

G                           A
Illuminating my nights and days

D                 F#m                    G    A
Guess it’s time for you

D         F#m
To hold me close to your  heart

G                A
Never allow us to part ways

D                             F#m
Once I was cynical and too jaded

G                                            A
Where I saw misery, now i see hope instead

D                                            F#m
Because you showed me, just what is means

G                                                        A
To hold a love that one could only find in dreams

(Repeat)

Playlist: Songs of HOPE (きぼうのうた)

Music, just like drawing, is like air for me. The music, which I listen too, depends on my mood. When I’m feeling sad, I listen to mellow songs. When I want to feel refreshed, I listen to songs that make me relax. When creative ideas are just bursting out of my brains, I listen to experimental or artsy music.

Just like in the movie “What’s Your Number?” Anna Faris’ character said, “Looking at somebody’s playlist is like reading their diary.” The music that you listen to pretty much describes what kind of person you are.

I’m a person who usually looks at the bright side. Even when everything is turning sour, I want to be optimistic as much as possible, because being negative just makes everything worse, and it could also make you look ugly. xD So today, I will give you the songs which I usually listen to whenever I need a bit of hope or encouragement.

I hope you guys like this list. This is in random order.

***

Glamorous Sky

By: Mika Nakashima

Okay this song has a version from Vamps and also from Girugasmesh. However, I love Mika-san’s version because I just love her voice and I could easily sing along with it.

“Ano yume wo narabete, futari aruita GLAMOROUS DAYS,” according to lyricsmania , it means

“In order to be in line for our dreams, we walk in these GLAMOROUS DAYS,” in English. This is actually my favorite line from this song.

***

Solanin

By: Asian Kung-Fu Generation

Some of you, who have heard this song and read its lyrics, might say “it’s a break-up song.” Well, at first glance it might seem a song for an ex-lover; however, upon watching and reading the manga, Solanin, my opinion changed. It’s actually a song about saying goodbye to your ‘old you’ and how to survive without relying to your past self.

***

Beat It

By: FT Island

A Japanese song sang by a Korean band. I just love their Japanese songs because it has a more ‘rock feeling’ compared to their Korean songs. Anyways, this song has an upbeat melody that makes you want to jump up and down and sing its liberating lyrics.

“Nanimo osorezuni (Just Fly away)” or “Without fearing anything, just FLY AWAY,” in English. I love that line and I love singing this part, “I’m really FLYING.”

***

Fly

By: Jealkb

This is another song with ‘FLY’ in its lyrics. xD I feel like I’m running whenever I listen to this song, and its smooth rhythm feels uplifting that makes you think that it’s okay to chase your dreams.

“You’ve got to SPREAD your wings and look for the wind. You should, one day, ASK for a MIRACLE”

***

Leaving So Soon

By: Keane

I’ve experienced a lot discouragement from different kinds of people, even my family and friends, sometimes, don’t have faith in me. I constantly, always, need to work hard just to prove that I could do something. There are times that your patience bubble is crying to be blown up to pieces; however, you need to keep your cool because when you are too emotional, you get irrational.

Hence, I usually sing this song  when I’m not in the mood to be kind. I sing it as if I’m singing to the person who is trying to pull me down.

***

Huwag ka nang Umiyak

By: Sugarfree

Sugarfree is one of my favorite OPM bands, sadly they already disbanded.

Whenever I hear this song while I’m feeling down, I feel like this song is telling me, “Everything will be fine. You have someone to hold onto.” Then, a flashback will come rushing to my brain, memories of the times my friends and family have supported me.

By the way, ‘Huwag ka nang Umiyak,’ means ‘Don’t Cry Anymore.’ It’s a song about giving someone an assurance that you are by their side no matter what happens.

***

Umaaraw, Umuulan

By: Rivermaya

This is the first song of Rivermaya that I liked. I really like the Rico Blanco era and I miss it. When Rico left, Rivermaya wasn’t Rivermaya anymore.

Alright, let’s go back to our main purpose!

                When I first listened to this song, I was really depressed, and hearing its lyrics just made me cry. It really hit me and it made me pull myself together.

I don’t know if it’s the correct translation but ‘Umaaraw, Umuulan’ means ‘Shinning, Raining.’  I’m not really good at translating Tagalog into English. xD However, I will try to translate the whole lyrics because it’s very special to me.

“Umaaraw Umuulan”

Hindi mo maintindihan  (You don’t understand)

Kung ba’t ikaw ang napapagtripan  (Why you’re the one )

Ng halik ng kamalasan  (Kissed by bad luck)

Ginapang mong marahan ang hagdanan (You crawled slowly the stairs)

Para lamang makidlatan  (Just to get hit by lightning)

Sa kaitaas-taasan, ngunit  (At the top, but)
Kaibigan  (Friend)

Huwag kang magpapasindak  (Don’t be afraid)
Kaibigan,  (Friend)

Easy lang sa iyak  (Don’t cry too much  or Take it easy when you cry)

Dahil wala ring mangyayari (Nothing is going to happen)

Tayo’y walang mapapala (We won’t get anything)

Wag mong pigilan ang pagbuhos ng ulan  (Don’t stop the rain from pouring)

May panahon para maging hari (There is a time to be a king)

May panahon para madapa (There is a time to fall)

Dahil ang buhay natin ay sadyang ganyan  (Because our life is just like that)

Umaaraw, umuulan  (Shinning, Raining)

Ang buhay ay sadyang ganyan  (Our life is just like that)

Umaaraw, umuulan (Shinning, Raining)

Wag kang maawa sa iyong sarili  (Don’t feel sorry for yourself)

Isipin na wala ka nang silbi (Thinking that you are worthless)

San’ dambuhalang kalokohan  (It’s such a big bullcrap)

Bukas sisikat ding muli ang araw  (Tomorrow the sun will shine again)

Ngunit para lang sa may tiyagang  (But only for the ones who are patient)

Maghintay (to wait)

Kaibigan,  (Friend)

Wag kang magpapatalo  (Don’t let yourself lose)

Kaibigan, (Friend)

Itaas ang noo (Hold your head up high)

***

Music really takes away my stress. How about you? What songs do you listen to in order to describe your current mood?

Compass- FT Island (Guitar Chords)

This is one of my favorite FT Island songs. When I was on my way to Manila, I kept on listening to this song for an hour and I still listened to it over and over again on my way back home for almost 2 hours. I’m not really an expert in figuring out the guitar chords of a song, so if there are any mistakes I’m so sorry.

TAIYOU (English Translation) by Suneohair

TAIYOU (太陽)
By: Suneohair ( スネオヘアー)

I want to be around you any day
Itsu no hi mo soba ni itai yo
いつの日も側に居たいよ

For holding you
Kimi dakishimeru tame ni
君抱きしめる為に

The sun shines on us
Bokutachi o terasu taiyou
僕達を照らす太陽

It’s warm within
Nukumori no naka
温もりの中

So forget
Wasurete shimaisou
忘れてしまいそう

What is likely to be crushed
Oshitsubusaresou
押しつぶされそう

At that time you might lose the light
Moshimo kimi ga, hikari ushinau sono toki mo
もしも君が、光失うその時も

I will stay
Boku ga tsuiteyuku
僕が付いて行く

So don’t worry
Dakara, shinpai shinaide
だから、心配しないで

I’ll be there forever
Itsumademo soba ni iru yo
いつまでも側に居たいよ

Every time I hold you

kimi dakishimeru tabi ni
君抱きしめる度に

The sun connects us
bokutachi o tsunagu taiyou
僕達をつなぐ太陽

Let me hear your voice
koe o kikasete
声を聞かせて

I might lose you because of my mistakes
nakushite shimaisou
なくしてしまいそう

Today is so fragile
hakanasugiru kyou
はかなすぎる今日

You are like an angel that can’t be tainted
Maru de kimi wa, kegareru koto no nai tenshi sa
まるで君は、汚れる事のない天使さ

I don’t want to be alone
kesshite hitori ni shinai yo
決して一人にしないよ

Ne, don’t forget
Nee, wasurenaide
ねえ、忘れないで

I want to be with you forever
itsumademo soba ni itai yo
いつまでも側に居たいよ

Each time I gaze you
kimi o mitsumeru tabi ni
君を見つめる度に

Sadness is also being burned by the sun
KANASHIMI mo kogasu taiyou
カナシミも焦がす太陽

Show me your smile
egao o misete
笑顔を見せて

Any day
Itsu no hi mo
いつの日も

I’m beside you
Soba ni iru yo
側に居るよ

For holding you

Kimi dakshimeru tame ni
君抱きしめるために

The sun shines on us
Bokutachi o terasu taiyou
僕達を照らす太陽

It’s warm within
Nukumori no naka
温もりの中

Yes, I love you
sou, aishiteru n’da
そう、愛してるんだ

Yes, I love you
sou, aishiteru n’da
そう、愛してるんだ

In this song , I can’t even put it into words
Iikaerenai uta
言い換えれない詩

You are you
Kimi wa kimi de
君は君で

Stay as you are
Kimi no mama de
君のままで

Through thick & thin, stay with the same smile
Doko made demo sono mama no egao de
どこまででもそのままの笑顔で

*I really love this song so I decided to translate it. My friend Kyoko-san help me to translate this~!

Prism (English Translation) by Baiser

22315-baiser-te8w

PRISM
By Baiser

Chorus 1:

Like a flower, like a thorn, you’re in a whim
Hana no youni toge no youni kimi wa kimagurede
はなのようにとげのようにきみはきまぐれで

Like the moon, like the darkness, my heart wavers
Tsuki no youni yami no youni boku no mune wa yurameku
つきのようにやみのようにぼくのむねはゆらめく

Like a feather, like an iron, the color is changing
Hane no youni tetsu no youni iro wo kaeteyuku
はねのようにてつのようにいろをかえてゆく

The throbbing is prism
Tokimeki wa prism
ときめきはプリズム

Crawl on your dream…the heart is now
Crawl on your dream… kokoro wa ima
Crawl on your dream…こころはいま

Swimming in the soft night
Yawarakana yoru wo oyoideiru yo
やわらかなよるをおよいでいるよ

I want to stare only at you
Tada kimi dake wo mitsumeteitai
ただきみだけをみつめていたい

Embrace the fingers with the touch of sorrow
Dakiau yubi ga kanashimi ni furetemo
だきあうゆびがかなしみにふれても

True wonder land…the magic is now
True wonder land… mahou wa ima
True wonder land…まほうはいま

The magic is now melted in the smile and burns the tears
Hohoemi ni tokete namida wo moyasu
ほほえみにとけてなみだをもやす

No matter how much I’m amazed, I’ll keep dreaming
Akireru gurai yume miteiyou
あきれるぐらいゆめみていよう

For the fragile future
Sugu hibi wareru mirai no tame ni
すぐひびわれるみらいのために

Chorus 2:

Like honey, like poison, you are annoying
Mitsu no youni doku no youni kimi wa nayamashiku
みつのようにどくのようにきみはなやましく

Like the wind, like a song, you shake my heart
Kaze no youni uta no youni boku no heart furuwasu
かぜのようにうたのようにぼくのハートふるわす

Like a worm, like a trap, the meaning is changing
Mushi no youni wana no youni imi wo kaeteyuku
むしのようにわなのようにいみをかえてゆく

The sadness is also prism
Setsunasa mo prism
せつなさもプリズム

I want to stare only at you
Tada kimi dake wo mitsumeteitai
ただきみだけをみつめていたい

Embrace the heart that is also filled with sorrow
Dakiau mune ni kanashimi ga michitemo
だきあうむねにかなしみがみちても

No matter how much I’m amazed, I’ll keep dreaming
Akireru gurai yume miteiyou
あきれるぐらいゆめみていよう

Now the crack is for the broken future
Sugu hibi wareru mirai no tame ni
すぐひびわれるみらいのために

Close your eyes unconsciously in the middle of a kiss
Kuchiduke no tochuu de omowazu me wo tojita
くちづけのとちゅうでおもわずめをとじた

A dazzling light was inserted from you
Kimi kara sashikonda hikari ga mabushikute…
きみからさしこんだひかりがまぶしくて

Repeat Chorus 1 & Chorus 2

My friend helped me to translate this. I’m still not that good in Japanese.^^

Thank you Kyoko-san!!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
