Forever Love

Performed & Arranged by: X Japan

Lyrics & Composed by: Yoshiki

Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)

Version 1.50


Note: Forever Love is, quite simply, one of the best songs ever. X Japan and the amazing Yoshiki did some amazing work over the years, for which I respect them immensely. Forever Love is beyond anything else, as a 10+ minute ballad which pulls at your heartstrings and makes you cry. I simply don't have enough words to describe how amazing this song is. Forever Love was also used as the theme song to the spectacular animated movie X (by mega-artist group CLAMP) and was an amazing hit for the band which had their fans crying in the streets. Or at least I do...


mou hitori de arukenai

toki no kaze ga tsuyosugite

Ah     kizutsuku koto nante

nareta kazu     dakedo ima wa...

I can't walk any further alone

The winds of time are too strong

Ah     There were so many times

I was hurt     but now...


Ah     kono mama dakishimete

fureta mama no kokoro o

kawaritsuzukeru kono toki ni

kawaranai ai ga aru nara

Ah     Hold me like this

Hold my trembling heart

In this continually changing time

If there's a never-changing love


Will you hold my heart

namida uketomete

mou kowaresou na     All my heart

Will you hold my heart

And catch my tears

It seems I've already broken down     All my heart


Forever Love Forever Dream

afureru omoi dake ga

hageshiku setsunaku     jikan o umetsukusu

Oh Tell me why

Forever Love Forever Dream

Only the overflowing memories are

Furiously, painfully     stopping up time

Oh Tell me why


All I see is blue in my heart


Will you stay with me

kaze ga sugisaru made

mata afuredasu     All my tears

Will you stay with me

Until the wind has passed by

They're still overflowing     All my tears


Forever Love Forever Dream

kono mama soba ni ite

yoake ni furueru kokoro o dakishimete

Oh Stay with me

Forever Love Forever Dream

Stay close like this

In the dawn, embrace my trembling heart

Oh Stay with me


Ah     subete ga owareba ii

owari no nai kono yoru ni

Ah     ushinau mono nante

nanimonai     anata dake

Ah     Everything should end

In this endless night

Ah     What have I lost

Nothing     Only you


Forever Love Forever Dream

kono mama soba ni ite

yoake ni furueru kokoro o dakishimete

Forever Love Forever Dream

Stay close like this

In the dawn, embrace my trembling heart


Ah     Will you stay with me

kaze ga sugisaru made

mou dare yori mo soba ni

Ah     Will you stay with me

Until the wind has passed by

More than anyone else, stay close


Forever Love Forever Dream

kore ijou     arukenai

Oh Tell me why     Oh Tell me true

oshiete ikiru imi o

Forever Love Forever Dream

I can't walk any further than this

Oh Tell me why     Oh Tell me true

Tell me the meaning of life


Forever Love Forever Dream

afureru namida no naka

kagayaku kisetsu ga eien ni kawaru made

Forever Love

Forever Love Forever Dream

Until inside of overflowing tears

The shimmering season changes into eternity

Forever Love
