I was frantically looking for something
it's okay to stumble, so go forward
I know it's foolish, I just run on without regret
the only one I can trust is myself, I didn't need friends
the fangs I bared at anything and everything
sexual stuff in adolescence is delicate and fleeting
I wanna be strong, give me the strength to live on my own
honestly, I was just scared of betrayal
I knew that nothing would change if I kept running away
but I couldn't change myself.
the loneliness I prided myself on
was a pair of wings to escape to my worthless dreams
the self assertion I prided myself on called 'RIOT'
there was no freedom, nothing beyond this light.
Teenage Bluely Days
I was drowning in each rough new day
before I knew it I was shouldering such loneliness
It was hard. To be honest,
I really didn't want to be on my own.

since always pretending to be strong makes one forget one's true face
it's important to occassionally loosen up and rely on others
hurt... when you want to cry, face the great big sky
and scream out in a loud voice
that you want to forget yourself, so you can keep being who you are.
the encouraging voices of my father, my mother, and my friends
spurred on, even one so weak as myself, they gave me light
the loneliness and pain of my youth that I prided myself on
were a pair of wings to escape to my worthless dreams
if there's freedom to be had in that clear blue sky
I wouldn't care if these wings I'm so proud of were torn off
I began running, frantically aiming for the sky
I spread my wings and flew away, and the spot where I fell
was 'freedom'.
with a wonderful family, and wonderful friends
these were the best days of my life, if I'm reborn
let's meet again...

    General CommentI love that song. I never really paid much attention to it until it just got stuck in my head after watchin NLSG... and it stuck and stuck and then I tried to find translations... ^^ I love it. It's so beautifully natural. It sounds real.

    General CommentI think this was one of Gazette's more... shallow and easy to understand songs.

    To me and my friend we both agreed that the song was kinda of sung (I guess) from an average angsty teen's mind. He thinks he's got a grip on his situation and goes all out on it then realizes "Oh noez, what is I doingz?" and begins to notice that his friends and family were behind him the whole time and all that sappy stuff. He finds that freedom and happiness don't come from breaking away from everyone but by staying with them so they can support him when he gets trapped in the pitfalls of life that he wouldn't be able to normally crawl out of himself.

    Woo, I think I actually interpreted a song without sounding like a complete moron. I think I just sounded like a regular moron. :P

    ...I think I would have liked the song more if I had just avoided the translations altogether though, it's all too cliche. XD

    General Commenti think i can easily say that this song can mean so much more than a few cliche meanings
    it just depends on life experience, not always "teen angst"

    General CommentThis song makes me cry every time (even before I read the english lyrics).
    I don't think it's just a teenager's perspective though...I think it really has to do with Ruki's teenage years and the stuff he dealt with his family when he joined a band...

    Gazerock forever!

    General CommentRuki always gets very emotioal when he sings this song.
    I do feel like it's about him remembering his teenage years
    and how hard they were, but I think as he matured he realized he wasn't always alone and that even if he couldn't always "fly" he knew that his family and friends were always there to catch him.
    But I think it's strange because I thought he had a very bad relationship with his family, I know he would get beaten.
    So sometimes I feel like this song is about how he wants things to be.
    And that that may be the reason he cries when he plays this song, 'cause it's not really that way in his life.
    I don't know I could be wrong, but just from interviews he says he doesn't talk to them much and so I didn't really think he particularly was close to them.
