Chemistry – Our Story, Once Again

I didn’t really like this song which happens to be the theme song for Valkyria Chronicles 2 but somehow it managed to grow on me even though I didn’t listen to it repeatedly… Maybe it’s because of the slow beat.

It only comes on JPOP group, Chemistry’s “Regeneration” album though (DFCL-1605-6) and not the official game OST.

初初我不喜歡這首「戰場的女武神2」的開場歌。雖然我沒有重複聽但最後都喜歡聽… 可能因爲是慢歌。

這首歌不可在遊戲的OST找到只可在JPOP組合Chemistry的”Regeneration“盤找到。

Our Story

Lyrics: Natsumi Tadano
Arrangement: Kotaro Egami

Even if there are days when you feel yourself hesitating
It doesn’t mean it’s the end of the road for you
Even if there are days you believe you can keep on winning
You’re just playing and winning a lonely game

Get together with those you love and shake hands with your friends
Lets keep those scenes filled with good fortune going

Together we’ll make those dreams come true in our story
There’s nothing for us to be afraid of
The future ahead is filled with joy and light
Growing ever bigger so free yourself more
Together we will spell out love in our story
The path in which we search for answers
Isn’t that long before it winds and connects us together
It’s unstoppable, yes it’s our story

The girls have a greater peak moment in their lives than we do
And that makes us want to protect their fragility
They always hold us by the arms when we have been hurt
And softly they smile for us

If there’s only one thing I can choose
To take with me if the world was to end
I would choose to let the flower in our souls bloom

Lets unravel the mystery that is you in our story
Lets understand why we met
I can feel that it’s something worth betting our lives on
Lets free ourselves more
Together we will spell out love in our story
The path in which we search for answers
Isn’t that long before it binds our hearts together
It will never end our story

As if a seal has been broken
Our heartbeats overlap with each together
Your heart, my heart burns like a flame
We won’t leave each other, it’s an everlasting melody

Together we’ll make those dreams come true in our story
There’s nothing for us to be afraid of
The future ahead is filled with joy and light
Growing ever bigger, never ending our story

Our story is already a distant story in the past
But that same colour still lingers in our eyes
We fight and sing, dreaming of someone there for us
We will connect with each other

Together we will spell out love in our story
The path in which we search for answers
Isn’t that long before it winds and connects us together
It’s unstoppable, yes it’s our brave story

Persona 3 Portable OST

Wiping All Out
Vocals: Mayumi Fujita, Lotus Juice (Rap)
Lyrics: Lotus Juice

Been a little while but I’m still battling, moving fast
While you’re just prattling no time for me
No tangling, hit you in the spot with no angle and…

I’m not a princess
a lot of anger in it
Not a cutie girlfriend, oh no
Don’t you know?

Flashy rhymes coated with spangles
Add some sounds in it
It times wangles
Three dots connect to rectangles
Just like music sounds connect and rambles

You can not run away
hell nah, no man can run away
from me I stay in your head as
one big threat

It’s demolition
wiping all out
I won’t go, until it’s over

It’s coalition
pieces of wreckage
come to me
and let it be one

和訳

ちょっと久しぶりだが、まだ戦ってる、まだ行動が早い
あなたがまだ考えてる間に私がもう動いた
ゆっくり戦うじゃない、すぐに痛いところへ打つぞ

お姫様何かじゃない
(本当に怒ってるぞ)
可愛い彼女じゃないよ
まだ分からないの?

キラキラな曲がまだ足りない
音を加えよう
もっと楽しくなる
点が四角の間に載せるんだ
音楽のように音が繋がって響いてゆく

逃げられないよ
(ああ、誰も逃げられないさ)
あなたの頭に居て
巨大な脅しになる

破壊
全部破壊
私が行かないよ、全部が破壊されたまで

今はチームワークだよ
そしたら全部の残骸が
こっちへ来て
合わせばいい

中文翻譯

過了多久但我還在戰爭,還動作快
你還在思考中我己動
不要慢慢打,我只打中你死穴…

我不是位公主
(她真不高興)
我不是你可愛的女友
你還未明白?

好像好聽的曲還未夠
再加一些聲音
才孌得更好聽
要加三點在那四角形中
聲音才會連接成音樂

你走不到
(對,设有人走不到)
我會在你心中
變成巨大的威脅

破壞
全部都要破壞
至到完為止,我不走

我們要團結
以後所有残骸
來的時侯
讓它合起來吧

Persona PSP Opening and Ending Lyrics

Still finishing the different branches in Persona PSP but I’ve already taken a liking to the music for some time.

Some notes Meguro made about these compositions is that he was aiming for the same pop style used in Persona 3/4 so that players who are playing this game because of those titles will feel more at home. He also wanted to experiment with the music to show how two-sided Persona is. For example, in the opening he starts off with some light pop before moving onto the intense beat of rock. Then there’s also some switching between English and Japanese in the lyrics.

Some of those approaches aren’t done for the first time to be honest. “Burn My Dread” mixed pop and rock together too.

On another note, it’s interesting how the lyricist for these two main theme songs also wrote the lyrics for Persona Trinity Soul’s first opening “Breakin’ Through” although I personally didn’t really like that song.

Well anyway, lets hope the European release of the game will get the free pre-order two disc soundtrack that America’s going to get!

Persona OST

Dream of Butterfly

Lyrics: Masao Komori
Composition: Shoji Meguro
Vocals: Yumi Kawamura

Translation

Dream of a butterfly, or is life a dream?
Don’t wanna wake up, coz I’m happier here

I was glad just to have you by my side
It was the only reality I needed

But it was all just a dream
Swaying and dissolving like bubbles in the dark ocean
When I woke up, no one was really there

There is nothing certain
Reaching for the shimmering shape in vain
That, I know is true in this place

What should I believe in to live on in this ever changing world?

I’m drowning (I can’t believe in you)
in sadness (but I cannot forget you)
calling out as I saw you (I will dig up my faith)
that night (and march on)

I believed (I cannot see ahead)
that it’s because (but I can’t keep standing still)
you are by my side (So I will close my eyes)
that I could grow strong (and march on)

I was afraid (Can’t lay the blame on you)
of sadness (but I cannot forgive you)
crying as I called out to you (So drenched up in rain)
that day (I’ll march on)

I realised (I cannot face the sun)
my weaknesses (but I cannot dream at night)
are because of you (So under the moonlight)
They all are (I’ll march on)

Oh – Pak Ho, The Process of Growing Up

Starting to get a little tired of Pak Ho’s “Under The Same Sky” since coming across it and having it on my DAP for over a year so I decided to check out his other songs. This song “Oh” which was on the same album sounds very good too. It has a very smooth melody to it. Once again, I can agree with most of the lyrics although some are aimed towards those brought up with Hong Kong culture like myself.

Here are the lyrics complete with romanised Jyutping and my translation. The song is about the process of growing up.

周柏豪 – 哦

作曲:陳光榮
填詞:周柏豪
編曲:陳光榮

曾聽過嗎 成長裡若然遇到斥罵
當天那一刻會怕煩
曾聽過嗎 成長裡別說謊話
否則“甩去大牙”

現在常有禁忌 明白當天真理
才發覺那套教材是細膩
回想到一句“別走得多麼遠離”
若現在甚麼都忘記
難做回自己

Fairy Tale – Michael Wong

I know this song by Michael Wong is two years old but, only just came by it. Some touching lyrics but, the music video starts out pretty hilarious.

童話 – 光良

曲︰光良
詞︰光良
編︰TAICHI NAKAMURA(BLUESOFA)

忘了有多久 再沒聽到你
對我說你最愛的故事
我想了很久 我開始慌了
是不是我又做錯了甚麼

*你哭著對我說 童話裡都是騙人的
我不可能是你的王子
也許你不會懂 從你說愛我以後
我的天空星星都亮了

#我願變成童話裡
你愛的那個天使
張開雙手 變成翅膀守護你
你要相信 相信我們會像童話故事裡
幸福和快樂是結局

重唱 *,#,#,#

一起寫我們的結局
