what's up?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. volare

the image becomes brighter and brighter
the engine quickly becomes warmer
everyday love spreads out farther
the warmth has no chance to slow down
the feeling rises straight up
look how free i am
both of [my] eyes fixed on the present
my mood like the ocean - always bright
love just needs to say
go forward without turning
love just needs to say
fly up even without wings
volare (going to fly in spanish)
give me a promise
volare
dreams take my place
volare
promise now
run forward
dare to be more prideful
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. love, it never fades

verse one
i know you're panicked
i know you're confused
i know you don't have anything to stand for
i know you use tears to wash your hurt

chorus don't cry, don't cry
even if the stars forget to protect the moon
don't be bitter, don't be bitter
even if the time and space ends in a twinkling
love will never fade
it starts from the same place
memories turn into a bed's blanket
[they can] warm up the matters of the heart
love will never stop
but it will come from another direction
make promises in this beautiful existence
you'll cherish the feeling for a lifetime

verse two
i know you're afraid
i know you're searching
i know you're not like this
i know you beg the heavens to turn back time [literally -- to turn the world backwards]
your hard work was lost in yesterday
collect it back and return it to tomorrow

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. when i think of you

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. the person who loved me most hurt me the most

the sky is black without sound
love falls apart without a trace
the bone-carving wind
turns up the cold in the heart
blows away years of feeling
leaving only me

two lonely spirits with able eyes
our hardships are identical matches
love's earth-dwellers
love will never fade meet in this painful city

the person i loved the most was the one who hurt me the deepest
i retreat without authority and without choice
i lightly close the door to my heart, leaving the warm existence
just afraid that what i loved was real
the person i love the most was the one who hurt me the deepest
teaching a person to assist in the deep carving
turn on one lamp and warm up my regretful youth
burn up all my diligence that lacks a grudge

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. don't lie to me

verse one
at 7:30 you call saying you can't come home for dinner
but i'm waiting; the food in the pot is steaming
it is yet another night alone
you say this week the company wants you to work overtime
saying this is your responsibility when it's just an excuse
i think you should stop trying to hide it

chorus
don't lie to me, saying that you love me
this love i still cherish
never had care or love
was it just out of convenience?
[you] stole my heart, gambled my care
why haven't you questioned yourself yet?
[i] tried opening an eye, pretending not to see
i need to say goodbye to you...

verse two
you say being a woman i should think for the man
don't be so demanding; don't dream so much
this is a man's world
but in your heart you should understand (understand)
you only want your freedom (letting me be hurt)
should i withdraw your love?

rap
now you're only lying, only lying to yourself
lying here and there but still harming yourself
why should we still be together?
there's no respect and even more, there's no love
hey! are you afraid of living a life by youself?
or are you just afraid of facing loneliness?
are you afraid you'll have no one to love you?
no one to look after you, no one to care for
why are you doing this, eh?
is it because you always saw your dad doing the same towards your mom?
(don't do it) since you saw it you did it
but don't make the same mistake
there is no man without any difficulties
as long as you hang on it'll be ok

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. holding hands

verse one
when i woke up tonight
my toes were moving rhythmically
they said that tonight my mood is pretty good
[i] want to go walk around on the streets
the sky starts putting down rays of sunshine
the world seems to become infinite
my mood is like a shovel - digging
i want to find an exit, finding an exit i want to find an exit

chorus
whoever is responsible for this wonderful rhythm
come out and become the leader
let's go together to outerspace and bob our heads
today i decided i want to let loose and be high over my head
i want to go in everyone's dream and hold hands with the world

hold hands, hold hands
say less weird and useless talk
hold hands, hold hands
my warmth doesn't stop the whole year
hold hands, hold hands
first jump over the annoying things
hold hands, hold hands
at any time i comply with the earth and sky

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. loving til unable to let go

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8. dancing alone

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. thinking secretly of love

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10. release

verse one
love is not a city at night
the memory is like the constellations
the more the warm tears are boiling, the colder i feel
a person with a changed heart hurts another more and more
sitting idly until morning, the sunshine takes the place of a lamp in the room
thinking, the hardships cause more bitter thinking
pain, the hardships allow a person to mature
why am i afraid of the pain of breaking up?

chorus
release... is having the ability to admit wrong
i shouldn't still not let go
you have the freedom to leave
i have the freedom to live wonderfully
release... is understanding after wiping away the tears
find a new direction to walk towards in
this world is so vast
i definitely will realize this dream

bridge
in my heart there is a thirst for the concept of courage
the person who doesn't want to love me is worrying me

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

11. sister

verse one
the spring wind can smile
the melody is beautiful
you are just like a happy bird
the summer days are hot
the green fields are warm
you make the world much more wonderful
i remember your smile
i remember your goodness
it is the ballad in the forests
i am a patch of grass
the warm blanket's promise
i'm sure you know

chorus
you are my sister
you are my baby, oh yeah
doesn't matter how faraway you are
you are my sister
you are my baby, oh yeah
[i] just cherish this feeling

verse two
red leaves fall in autumn
a reflection with lovely color
you are a clean pepper
winter is the start of a new year
the world is full of leisure
you help the worries disappear
i remember your loveliness
i remember your cleverness
how could i possibly forget it?
as if i can fly
flying towards the sky
i definitely want you to see it
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

12. all i wish for

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

13. what's up?

cover of the song by "four non-blondes"

verse one 25 years of my life and still
i'm trying to get up that great big hill of hope
for a destination
i realized quickly when i knew i should
that the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
for whatever that means
so i cry sometimes when i'm lying on the bed
to get it all out, what's in my head?
then i start feeling a little peculiar
so i wake in the morning and i step outside
i take a deep breath and i get real high
then i scream from the top of my lungs
what's going on?

chorus
i say hey...
and i said hey, what's goin on?
and i say hey...
i said hey, what's goin on?

verse two
and i try, oh my god do i try
i try all the time
in this institution
and i pray, oh my god do i pray
i pray every single day
for a revolution
so i cry sometimes when i'm lying in bed
to get it all out, what's in my head?
then i start feeling a little peculiar
so i wake in the morning and i step outside
i take a deep breath and i get real high
then i scream from the top of my lungs
what's going on?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

14. do not continue pouring salt on the wounds

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

15. language of the eyes

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

16. can i hug you?

verse one
outside it is raining
my heart is hitting the floor
loving you for so long
it's so sour and difficult
apparently things need to seperate
tomorrow there will be no more care
i will leave my clothes at the house
if i have the opportunity to go back i will pick them up

no need to think that love cannot be overcome
no need to constantly try to find closure
i'm not pressuring you to because of me
to not concentrate and lose your mind...

chorus
can i hug you my love?
let me cry on your shoulders
if we were to part today
let me happily cry out :
can i hug you my baby?
can i approach you like this for the last time?
if you don't consent
i will slowly wait for you to go...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

17. give me feeling

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

19. water blue tears

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

20. listening to you listening to me
