X Japan, "The Last Song" [K/R/T]

Artist: X Japan
Song Title: The Last Song
Album: Ballad Collection
Track Number: 10
Released: 1997
Lyrics By: Yoshiki

This was X Japan's final song, until they got back together over 10 years later, in 2008. This song's lyrics still give me chills... Yoshiki speaks the english lines, as Toshi emotionally releases the chorus. It's just mindblowing has much emotion is in this song. <3
Kanji Romaji English Translation
Watching the stars till they're gone,
like an actor all alone,
who never knew the story he was in,
who never knew the story ends.
Like the sky reflecting my heart,
all the colors become visible.
When the morning begins... I'll read the last line.

終わらない雨 抱きしめた 
夜が朝を迎える
心はまだ濡れたまま…

In endless rain I've been walking,
like a poet feeling pain,
trying to find the answers,
trying to hide the tears.
But it was just a circle that never ends.
When the rain stops, I'll turn the page,
the page of the first chapter.

傷つくだけ 傷ついて 
解ったはずの答えを
どうしてまだ 問いかけてる?

Am I wrong to be hurt?
Am I wrong to feel pain?
Am I wrong to be in the rain?
Am I wrong to wish the night won't end?
Am I wrong to cry?
But I know it's not wrong to sing the last song,
cause forever fades.

気がつけば また独り 
夜の空を見つめてる
少しづつ消えて行く Our Memories...
傷つくだけ 傷ついて 
解ったはずの答えを
どうしてまだ 問いかけてる?

I see red... I see blue...
But the silver lining gradually takes over.
When the morning begins...
I'll be in the next chapter.

終わらない雨 抱きしめた 
夜が朝を向かえる
心はまだ濡れたまま
傷つくだけ 傷ついて 
解ったはずの答えを
どうしてまだ 問いかけてる?
Watching the stars till they're gone,
like an actor all alone,
who never knew the story he was in,
who never knew the story ends.
Like the sky reflecting my heart,
all the colors become visible.
When the morning begins... I'll read the last line.

Owaranai ame dakishimeta
yoru ga asa wo mukaeru
Kokoro wa mada nureta mama

In endless rain I've been walking,
like a poet feeling pain,
trying to find the answers,
trying to hide the tears.
But it was just a circle that never ends.
When the rain stops, I'll turn the page,
the page of the first chapter.

Kizutsuku dake kizutsuite
wakatta hazu no kotae wo
Doushite mada toikaketeru?

Am I wrong to be hurt?
Am I wrong to feel pain?
Am I wrong to be in the rain?
Am I wrong to wish the night won't end?
Am I wrong to cry?
But I know it's not wrong to sing the last song,
cause forever fades.

Ki ga tsukeba mata hitori
yoru no sora wo mitsumeteru
Sukoshi zutsu kiete yuku Our Memories...
Kizutsuku dake kizutsuite
wakatta hazu no kotae wo
Doushite mada toikaketeru?

I see red... I see blue...
But the silver lining gradually takes over.
When the morning begins...
I'll be in the next chapter.

Owaranai ame dakishimeta
yoru ga asa wo mukaeru
Kokoro wa mada nureta mama
Kizutsuku dake kizutsuite
wakatta hazu no kotae wo
Doushite mada toikaketeru?
Watching the stars till they're gone,
like an actor all alone,
who never knew the story he was in,
who never knew the story ends.
Like the sky reflecting my heart,
all the colors become visible.
When the morning begins... I'll read the last line.

I'll embrace the endless rain
and welcome the new dawn
with my heart still soaked.

In endless rain I've been walking,
like a poet feeling pain,
trying to find the answers,
trying to hide the tears.
But it was just a circle that never ends.
When the rain stops, I'll turn the page,
the page of the first chapter.

I just get hurt and hurt others,
I should know the answers by now.
So why am I still asking questions?

Am I wrong to be hurt?
Am I wrong to feel pain?
Am I wrong to be in the rain?
Am I wrong to wish the night won't end?
Am I wrong to cry?
But I know it's not wrong to sing the last song,
cause forever fades.

Before I realize it,
I'm watching the night sky all alone again,
as our memories gradually disappear...
I just get hurt and hurt others,
I should know the answers by now.
So why am I still asking questions?

I see red... I see blue...
But the silver lining gradually takes over.
When the morning begins...
I'll be in the next chapter.

I'll embrace the endless rain
and welcome the new dawn
with my heart still soaked.
I just get hurt and hurt others,
I should know the answers by now.
So why am I still asking questions?
