Sail Away


Yoruno hamabeni ukabiagaru kobune no silhouette
(A silhouette of a small boat floats upon the waters of the night bay)
Kokoro wo dakishime saki no mienai umie to kogidashita
(I cannot see what's ahead, yet I hold onto my heart tightly and begin to row the boat into the ocean)

Miagetemireba hoshitachiga
(I look up to see all the little stars)
Sotto katarihajimeru
(They're softly speaking to me)

Hitori janaiyo daremo onaji
(You're not alone, we're all the same)
Hoshino kazu hodo no kokoro ga
(As many as there are stars in the sky, there are souls)
Kizutsuitari ochikondari miushinattari shite
(That are hurting, that are down, that lost their way)
Demo akiramezu ho wo hirogete mirai e to
(But don't give up, put up your sail and steer your boat to the future)
Oh sail away
Just sail away

Taemanaku hibiku nami no rhythm ni miwo makasete
(I let the endless resounding rhythm of the waves take over and guide me)
Kaze ni tsutsumarete shizenni kokoro ga nozomu basho ni tadoritsukeru
(The winds surround me, and I'm automatically guided to a place where my heart wishes to be)

Feel the light nukumori wo kanjite
(Feel the light, feel the warmth)
Kikoete kuruyo inner voice
(You'll begin to hear your inner voice)

Hitori janaiyo daremo onaji
(You're not alone, we're all the same)
Hoshino kazu hodo no kokoro ga
(As many as there are stars in the sky, there are souls)
Kizutsuitari ochikondari miushinattari shite
(That are hurting, that are down, that lost their way)
Demo akiramezu ho wo hirogete mirai e to
(But don't give up, put up your sail and steer your boat to the future)
Oh sail away

Donna chiisana fune demo
(It doesn't matter how small your boat is)
Yeah it's alright
Tooi bashoe
(To a place far away)
Kaze sae areba tadori tsukeruyo
(As long as the wind blows, you'll get there)

Mou mayowanai
(I won't get lost anymore)
Ima kokokara
(From right here and right now)
Subete no kotoga hajimaru
(Everything begins)

Our time will go on by
(私たちの時間はかならず通り過ぎてゆく)
Yet we all stay the same
(けれど私たちはずっと変わらず生きてゆく)
Hoshino kazu hodo no kokoroga
(As many as there are stars in the sky, there are souls)
Tsurai tokiniwa
(When we're struggling)
Atatakasawo sagashimotomete
(We search for warmth)
And we find a way

Kizutsuitari ochikondari miushinattari shite
(We hurt, we get down, we lose our way)
Demo soredemo ii
(But there's nothing wrong with that)
Tashikana mono janakute ii
(It doesn't need to be a definite goal)
Yume wo tsunda funewo
(Just fill your boat with dreams)
Massuguni mirai e to
(And steer straight towards the future)

Just sail away
Yeah sail away

Eat Cake♡

So I was randomly going through my old songlist from years back.. and had a very nostalgic moment with Aphex Twin.

I L O V E this song. There was a time in my life that I refused to listen to anything else.. seriously. ;)

Absolutely adored the movie and the rest of the soundtrack as well.

Again, some eye-candy♥.

World of Daydreams

Here are two songs by one of my favorite artists, Oren Lavie.
I can't remember how many times I've listened to his album on repeat..
His voice is like soft silk...ah so smooth. It tickles my ears and goes straight into my heart.

His music takes me into a world of daydreams.

Great mix of jazz and classical elements.. at times 'Beatlesy'.. at times Nick Drake. Hauntingly beautiful melodies and lyrics. Can't wait for his next release. :)

大好きなアーティストOren Lavieの曲、「Her Morning Elegence」と「The Man Who Isn't There」。
このアルバム「The Opposite Side Of The Sea」にすごーくハマっていて、繰り返し何度も、何度も聴いています。
オーレンの声はシルクのようにスムーズで、私の心をくすぐります(>v<\)♫。 The Beatlesみたいな。。Nick Drakeみたいな。。ジャズやクラシカルのelementsが凄くいい〜。もちろん、メロディも歌詞も最高にいいです。 (本当にヘンな日本語でごめんねー(>o<;)!!笑)

Christine

skyscape

I listen to this song when I have a hard time falling asleep..
なかなか眠れない夜はこの曲を聴いて、癒されています。

Above & Beyond - Good For Me



Here are some photos I took of the sky with my phone.
There's really nothing more beautiful than the sky..
Caught up with the little things in front of us, we often forget to look up.
Sometimes..
when I look up..
I'm reminded of what's really important in life. :)

最近携帯でとった写真です。
空ってなんでこんなにキレイなんだろう〜
たぶん。。神のキャンバスだからなのかな。。
都会に住んでいると、上を見上げるのを忘れたりします。
ハワイに住んでいた頃は毎日のように、夜空を星を見ていました。。

いつも、
空を見上げていると、
本当に大切な物は何かを教えてくれている気がします。。:)






















Luv,
Christine
