Rosier

Luna Sea’s song for this week is “Rosier”. The single was released on July 21 of 1994, and reached No. 3 in Japanese music charts. Is from their album titled, Mother.

I love this song. At the beginning I would mostly listen to “I For You”, “Loveless”, and “Sweetest Coma Again”. But now, I’m hooked with “Rosier”. What can I say? Luna Sea never ceases to amaze me. Well, you have to understand since I have been a fan only for a month!🙂

The PV is really cool, but I love live performances;

Lyrics

I’ve pricked my heart I am the trigger
(Hu!)
Kagayaku koto sae wasureta machi wa neon no koozui
Muyuubyou no mure
Kusatta yabou no fukitamari no naka
Miageta yozora wo kirikizandeita biru
Yume no nai kono sekai
Kagayaku hoshi sae mienai tokai de
Yozora ni owari wo sagashimotomete
Kono yo ni kazashita hosoi yubisaki
Kotae wo sagashimotometeiru
Yurete yurete ima kokoro ga
Nani mo shinjirarenai mama
Saiteita no wa my rosy heart
Yurete yurete kono sekai de
Ai suru koto mo dekinu mama
Kanashii hodo azayaka na
Hanabira no you ni
ROSIER ai shita kimi ni wa
ROSIER chikadzukenai
ROSIER dakishimerarenai
ROSIER itoshisugite
I’ve pricked my heart.

By the time I knew, I was born
Reason or quest, not being told
What do I do, What should I take
Words “God Only Knows” won’t work for me
Nothing starts Nothing ends in this city
Exists only sever lonesome and cruel reality
But still I search for light
I am the trigger, I choose my final way
Whether I bloom or fall, is up to me
I am the trigger

(Hu!)

I’ve pricked my heart I am the trigger
I’ve pricked my heart
Kagayaku hoshi sae mienai tokai de
Yozora ni owari wo sagashimotomete
Kono yo ni kazashita hosoi yubisaki
Kotae wo sagashimotometeiru
Yurete yurete ima kokoro ga nani mo shinjirarenai mama
Saiteita no wa my rosy heart
Yurete yurete kono sekai de ai suru koto mo dekinu mama
Hakanaku chitte yuku no ka hanabira no you ni
Yurete yurete ima kokoro ga
Nani mo shinjirarenai mama
Saiteita no wa my rosy heart
Yurete yurete kono sekai de
Ai suru koto mo dekinu mama
Kanashii hodo azayaka na
Hanabira no you ni
ROSIER ai shita kimi ni wa
ROSIER chikadzukenai
ROSIER dakishimerarenai
ROSIER jibun sae mo
ROSIER ai shita kimi ni wa
ROSIER chikadzukenai
ROSIER dakishimerarenai
ROSIER itoshisugite…

Lyrics in English;

I’ve pricked my heart
I am the trigger

This city which has forgotten what it means to “shine”
Is flooding with neon lights
And is flooding with sleepwalkers
Ambitions only rot here
Looking up, you’ll only see the buildings slicing the night sky

There are no dreams in this world

In this city, where you’ll find no shining stars,
I search for the end in the night sky
I point up at that night sky with my finger that is wasting away
Hoping for an answer

My heart has been shaken and shaken
And now it can’t believe in anyone or anything
What had bloomed once was my rosy heart
This world has been shaken and shaken
And now love is an impossibility
It’s so sad
(Just like finding the petals of what was once a vivid flower)

ROSIER, whom I loved
I can’t get close to you
I can’t even hold you
I loved you too much

I’ve pricked my heart

By the time I knew it, I was born
Reason or quest, not being told
What do I do? What should I take?
Words “God only knows” won’t work for me
Nothing starts, Nothing ends in this city
Exists only severe lonesome and cruel reality
But still, I search for light
I am the trigger. I choose my final way
Whether I bloom or fall, is up to me
I am the trigger

I’ve pricked my heart

In this city, where you’ll find no shining stars,
I search for the end in the night sky
I point up at that night sky with my finger that is wasting away
Hoping for an answer

My heart has been shaken and shaken
And now it can’t believe in anyone or anything
What had bloomed once was my rosy heart
This world has been shaken and shaken
And now love is an impossibility
Will the petals (of my rosy heart) continue to fall?

My heart has been shaken and shaken
And now it can’t believe in anyone or anything
What had bloomed once was my rosy heart
This world has been shaken and shaken
And now love is an impossibility
It’s so sad
(Just like finding the petals of what was once a vivid flower)

ROSIER, whom I loved
ROSIER,I can’t get close to you
ROSIER,I can’t hold you in my arms
ROSIER,I can’t even…

ROSIER, love myself…
ROSIER, come near myself…
ROSIER,hold myself…

    • Yes, he looks really cool playing the solo here. Me being a J fan of course my favorite part is his rap. Love this song. Just found out the other day that Ryuichi is married to a Miss Japan and has a daughter. SO CUTE!!! I’m happy for them. I always felt rock musicians where lonely, so when I know they are married and have a family I’m happy.

      • Yes, that’s nice to hear. The life of a musician is hard, travelling all over the place, going from town to town. Some are naughty boys though, so sometimes I think it’s best NOT to be married to one lol.
