kizutsuke atta kotoba mo
kasaneta namida mo
itsuka wa omoide ni naru yo
dakara...togireta melody
mune ni dakishimete ashita mo ikiru darou
anata ni aenakute mo

Sing without you
I'll sing without you
Can't you feel my heart
Falling through the rain

I sing without you
I'll sing without you
Can't you hold my tears
Cause still I love you

I can't face that thought of being alone
I sing for the song still carries on
mune ni dakishimete omoi o utawasete
koe ni naranakute mo

Sing without you
I'll sing without you
Can't you feel my pain
There's nothing I can do

I still have a longing for your memory
kizutsuku dake demo
kokoro o tsutaetai yo

ima wa...hitori ni shinai de
furi sosogu ame ni niware sou na yume
ashita mo kanaderu kara

Sing without you
I'll sing without you
Can't you feel my heart
Falling through the rain

I sing without you
I'll sing without you
Can't you hold my tears
Cause still I love you

I sing without you
I'll sing without you
Can't you feel my heart
Falling through the rain

I sing without you
I'll sing without you
Can't you hold my tears
Cause still I love you

    General Commenthmmm I think the meaning behind this song (if put bluntly) is very simple...he (probably Yoshiki, because he tends to write most of these) lost someone he loves, possibly his father since he writes about him a lot because he died when Yoshiki was young. Yah, so that's my comment. Of course, it is a wonderful song, and probably my favorite by X Japan.

    General CommentMan, Yoshiki really frightens me. He is the best composer and lyricist I've ever heard of. And this song can touch anyone's heart in our days of sadness.
