Koisuru Otome English Cover: the song for ◊◊

Post by Koda on Wed Apr 22, 2009 4:21 am

hi everyone! Smile well masterjz suggested I put something in the creativity zone, and I thought well why not? soooo I decided to put my English cover of Koisuru Otome (love that song). the title is "the song for ◊◊" and it's about someone I loved very much (and still do) ...sooooo, enjoy! Razz

I recorded this a while ago so it's kinda crappy quality. comments, good or bad are entirely appreciated! Smile

here you go: the song for ◊◊ - KANON

by the way there are the lyrics:

05. the song for ◊◊
from Ikimonogakari - Koisuru Otome (2005)

Iíll write another letter for you not to read
Iíll send it back to myself when I fix the stamp
Addressed to you, written by me, but still for me
Should I let anyone elseís eyes touch the page?

The answerís hidden in the words I wrote to you;
ďThereís something I canít say in person, so I choose.
ďI hope this letter reaches you all right in timeÖĒ
But Iím too cowardly to send it, so itís mine

Who can say what Iím feeling? Not me, not a stupid song I wrote
About how much I need you and how I love you so
Itís pointless to wonder, Ďcause youíll never see or hear it
Whatís the problem with me damn it? Iím so afraid

CHORUS
So letís go slow yeah weíre going slow, for you to have me, Iíd do it
For your smile, yeah and for your laugh, Iíd do anything at all
ĎCause I love you, everything about you just makes me realize
You arenít perfect I know that and youíre all the world to me


Itís only now Iím finishing my letter to you
It may as well have taken me the whole damn year
Thereís just too much to write down on a single page
I counted, and it took me a whole notebook to write

The truth is simple, Iím blind for thinking this can work
At the same time youíre the one who makes my spirit soar
This is a delusion, a world thatís colored in a dream
Whatís the problem with me damn it? Iím so afraid

REPEAT CHORUS

So letís go slow yeah weíre going slow, just let me see what Iím doing
Iím by myself, by myself again and the dream of you is gone
Iím just too much like a girl in love; a simple crush that lasts forever
Iíll let you know, yeah Iíll let you know, donít hate me after all

I love you soÖla-la-la yeah la-la-la yeah, in the end Iím standing tall
I still need you, yeah I still need you, but I can be strong on my own
So thank you for being the first, the first one I ever loved


The first one I ever loved

so basically you created your own translation and use the music as your background...well i gotta give you props for doing it....actually i've been thinking that before, what if i use iki's song and make my own version? hmm...

the whole song itself is pretty good, i felt the sincerity and i thought the shouting part fits the instrumental section of the song.

but if i try to be a little rough and "simon cowellish" to you...there are some notes that are pitchy and off the beat but most of the song you hit the right notes...(obviously were not professionals..hehe) but overall it was a good performance. Keep it up!

hey thank goodness i did not use "utterly atrocious" as what Simon always used to say...hahaha!

i think it will be a blazin hot performance for whatever purpose you intend on doin' to this song...school's talent show right? good luck!

Mabuhay ka!

thanks! I appreciate the review, masterjz Smile

EDIT: actually, it's not a translation. Koisuru Otome is meant to be more heartwarming. These are my own lyrics.

I got interested and especially blown away by the lyrics, but the file had been deleted from the server, so I e-mailed Koda asking him to send me the song. I believe he wouldn't mind if I re-up it again since somebody might want to have a listen, too. ^^
