"Tears" as written by and Stephen Sinclair/joe Falsia....
Doko ni yukebaii anata to hanarete
Ima wa sugisatta toki ni toi kakete
Nagasugita yuru ni tobi dachi wo yume mita
Ikoku no sora mitsumete kodoko wo dakishimete

Nagareru namida wo toki no kaze ni kasanete
Owaranai anata no toiki wo kanjite
Dry your tears with love
Dry your tears with love

Loneliness, your silent whisper
Fills a river of tears through the night
Memory, you never let me cry
And you, you never said goodbye

Sometimes our tears blinded the love
We lost out dreams along the way
But I never thought you'd trade your soul to the fates
Never thought you'd leave me alone

Time through the rain has set me free
Sands of time will keep your memory
Love everlasting fades away
Alive within your beatless heart

Dry your tears with love
Dry your tears with love

Nagareru namida wo toki no kaze ni kasanete
Owaranai kanashimi wo aoi-bara ni kaete
Dry your tears with love
Dry your tears with love

Nagareru namida wo toki no kaze ni kasanete
Owaranai anata no toiki wo kanjite
Dry your tears with love
Dry your tears with love

Dry your tears with love
If you could have told me everything
You would have found what love is
If you could have told me what was on your mind
I would have shown you the way
Someday I'm gonna be older than you
I've never thought beyond that time
I've never imagined the pictures of that life
For now I will try to live for you and for me
I will try to live with love, with dreams
And forever with tears

    General CommentOne of the best songs of all time.
    Yoshiki is by far one of the best composers of our time.
    And the live acoustic version is... wow.

    Definately about his father... =[
    Poor guy.

    General CommentThis is easily my faveriot X-Japan song. This song was written in dedication to Yoshiki's father who comitted suicide when he was 10. My father also comitted suicide when I was young. There are times when hearing this song brings tears to my eyes.

    General CommentWhere do we go after we're separated
    Now that hanging question has passed
    On an endless night, I dreamt of a journey
    I gazed at the foreign skies
    and embraced the loneliness
    Tears always flow with the winds of time
    It's not over, feel your sigh.

    * Dry your tears with love

    Loneliness, your silent whisper
    fills a river of tears through the night
    Memory, you never let me cry
    and you, you never said good-bye
    Sometimes our tears blinded the love
    We lost our dreams along the way
    But I never thought
    you'd trade your soul to the fates,
    never thought you'd leave me alone

    Time through the rain has set me free
    Sands of time will keep your memory
    Love everlasting fades away
    Alive within your beatless heart

    * repeat

    Tears always flow with the winds of time
    It's not over, blue rose from sadness


    * repeat

    Tears always flow with the winds of time
    It's not over, feel your sigh.

    * repeat x2

    General CommentI have this song, live. It's so amazing. =.= It's like, beautiful. Words cannot describe it. It's pure brilliance, to say the very least. Definitely one of my favorite X songs. This song really makes me cry. And poor YOSHIKI! =.=

    k. well, astonishing lyrics, instrumentals, vocals.. as always. words can NEVER describe their beauty. In the live version I have, the audience sings along the whole time, and for a few lines, Toshi stops singing, and they just sing, and.. oh.. I wish I could have seen them live. ::sob::

    General CommentI ALWAYS cry when I listen to "Tears". It's just one of those ballads that transcends every emotion and captures the spirit as well as the body with perfect sadness and energy. Toshi's English is exceptionally good in this piece and captures the pathos of the lyrics unexpectedly well.

    Yoshiki's pain over losing his father must still be so great... I'm so sorry.
