the way that we walked together back then is lost
yet always we were walking, someday shall I meet with you?

atop the gently sloping hill, the snow slowly falls I understand that I cannot reach you, yet
in your room, a single flower of the kind that you loved, is now...

the day of last year's final snow a promise firmly exchanged
when I remembered, it started to melt, and spill from the palm of my hand

atop the gently sloping hill, the snow slowly falls I understand that I cannot reach you, yet
in your room, a single flower of the kind that you loved, is now...

all alone by the window, just staring at the snow, while I remember you
through the glass, I recall you, and give you a final kiss...

hey smile don't cry anymore
from here on, always, I'll be watching you

atop the gently sloping hill, the snow slowly falls I understand that I cannot reach you, yet
in your room, a single flower of the kind that you loved, is now...

the brightness quietly colours the inside of the town white
you saw the season's final colours
a tear falls reality is cruel, isn't it?
you saw the season's final colours

the four seasons and your colours too soon will disappear
the snow melts, on the street corner, the flowers bloom
you saw the "hues" softly dissolving

the day of this year's final snow *on the street corner, one single flower
when I look up at the sky, the final snow will spill into the palm of my hand*

    General CommentWhy the hell hasn't anyone commented on this song?

    It doesn't matter what mood I'm in... this song always makes me cry. It's so beautiful... the piano and the emotion Kyo puts into his voice is just amazing. I love this song.

    General CommentThis song was so beautifully written, and so elegantly played out. This showed what Kyo could honestly do with his voice. How far he can actually stretch it to make different sounds. Plus, he added such emphasis to many of the important words. Regardless of what anyone says, it was an absolutely astounding piece of work. The piano was incredible, as was the PV for this song. I think that this is indeed a song that was unexpected from Diru, but definitely much appreciated.

    General CommentI agree with Mizerable_Vanilla. I think this song is truly a piece of work. I don't think I really have ever heard such a heart touching song such as "Ain't afraid to Die"...And when they die...I think I will only listen to this song...

    General CommentT.T I love how Kyo sounded in this too!! It's such a beautiful song!! I personally think this song was about what someone saw or felt as they died. The PV was stunning. 7 1/2 minutes of beauty. Still, it was creepy how Kyo had his mouth sealed for the first half of the song... o.O oh hey, that's just the way he is though...

    *sigh* I wuv my Kyo...
