Do nothing but cry day and night
kakoto mirai no hazama de
kawaranai omoi
kirei-nau so ni kaete mo .....Alone
hatashinai yo sora ni nagareru
namida o dakishimete moo ichido

Oh my DAHLIA !

kokoro nurasu kanashimi wa
kazoe-kirenai hoshi ni naru kedo
You don't know where you're goin' to
mayoi no naka de hirogeta
kodoku no tsubasa namida no umi o koetara

You'll see blue sky

katachi no nai yume mo ii
ashita no kaze ni kazashite
haba..taku ima

Time after time, you try to find yourself

nagareru toki no naka de
taenai kizu dakishime
setsunasa no kaze ni mau
Dream on your left. Dead on your right.
aoi yoru o dakishimete
ashita o toikakeru

mujun darake mo kokoro ni
Dead or life.
eien no ichibyou ni nagareru
namida o kazaranaide moo nido to


daremo ga motsu kokoro no kizuato ni
nagareru ame wa...

Time after time
yoru no sora niumametai mitoikakeru
taenai namida no kawa
gin'iro ni kagayaku made
tsumetai kaze ni fukarete
tobitatenai tori-tachi ga
sorezore no yume dakishime
yoake no sora o....

Time after time, you cry in reality.

nagareru toki o tomete
nagashita namida no ato
gensoo no hana ga saku

    General CommentX JAPAN's last studio album certainly kicks off with a bang with this one! And yet "Dahlia" is vaguely more modern of composition, more industrial and almost 'grungy', in comparison to the likes of classically-styled "Silent Jealousy" or the infamous "Kurenai". Still, Yoshiki's talent is blinding in that he never allows himself or his bandmates to fall into anything even remotely similar to the over-used power chords, unnecessarily distorted guitar fuzz, or repetitive stanzas that have made the offerings of the modern American music industry so boring and uninspired. (And, yes, I mean EMO as well as GRUNGE!)

    Anyway. "Dahlia" is hard-hitting, but even so it's not quite the X JAPAN speed metal that we've all become so familiar with--it's more experimental. I particularly enjoy the guitars at the conclusion, and Pata's fingerwork that he churns out there. But who else notices that Yoshiki spells out the name 'Dahlia' nearly twice during his spiritual voice-over? This is such a sad, beautiful song, with so much longing--how could I NOT name my beloved dog after it? :)

    My friend loves this song so much that he gives the name DAHLIA as a codename of the girl he's in love to!
