EXILE: Michi, The Road English Lyrics #HelpJapan

Wednesday, March 23, 2011
I'm still trying to give highlight on Japan's crisis after the March 11th earthquake and tsunami, so I have chosen the song "Michi" by EXILE. The beautiful lyrics emphasis on hope, dreams, love, heart, courage, friends and smile. Special times and memories that will lead you back on the road to the future. A feeling like spring to stop cry and move on. Because, things you took for granted will change and the sky will be blue again.

This week's 4M theme is "Your Favorite Male Artist" and I was eager to find out more about Japan male singers. EXILE is a Japanese 14 member male band who has been winning the Billboard Japanese Music Awards 2010 for a second time in a row and according to their music sound, I really can understand why. The band also has received many other awards, like the MTV Icon Award and Japan Gold Disc Award in the same year. "Michi" was their 23th single released on February 14th, 2007.

I also recommend you to check out their song "Futatsu no Kuchibiru", which was chosen as Video of  The Year 2010 and is the closing theme of the Japanese Dorama "Tokyo Dogs" starring Oguri Shun who became popular for his role as Hanazawa Rui in "Hana Yori Dango" and young Shinichi Kudo in "Detective Conan". Unfortunately the video has no English subtitles yet, but I still enjoyed watching it on Youtube. 

EXILE
Michi, The Road lyrics (English subtitle)

“My memories stopped time”
As if to say “Don’t forget today”
A road in my memories
Where we’ll never again walk together in the familiar scenery

I met you on this road
Spring enveloped us
You taught me what love and tenderness were
Don’t cry, move on

The sky is blue again today
That time when you smiled tearfully
Things you take for granted change in the future
I want to talk about “hope”, “dreams”, “love”
Don’t let time move
I scream into the sky
I won’t forget you

When I found that tenderness
I wasn’t alone
Nobody can erase this album in my heart
Maybe it’ll make me smile

“The final time has moved on”
Words I want to say to you
When my tears got in the way and I looked up at the sky
I heard the sounds of spring

I walked this road with you, up to today
My lips move just a little
Thank you for this special time
“Heart”, “courage”, “friend”, “smile”
I’m so happy
That tears have overflowed
And I can’t stop them

I’ll walk on slowly
This road leads to my future
Goodbye, don’t cry
I won’t forget you
Even when we’re apart, I’ll love you

I walked this road with you, up to today
My lips move just a little
Thank you for this special time
“Heart”, “courage”, “friend”, “smile”
I’m so happy
That tears have overflowed
And I can’t stop them
