Welcome 2015!

Happy New Year! It’s now 2015 and we have 365 days of awesome ahead of us.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who had made 2014 so great and amazing. 2014 for me was a very exciting and fulfilling year as a translyricist. To everyone who read, commented, liked, shared and even used my works, thank you very much. You have no idea how much joy you have brought me with all those simple gestures.

Thanks for 2014, everyone. Let’s move on to the Chapter 2015.

Thank you!

Hi everyone! Thanks for dropping by. Your views and visits mean a lot to me, and that continues to inspire me to make more translyrics. I really feel overwhelmed and grateful for each and everyone of you who has visited and viewed my posts, and shared them. There are other more amazing and fabulous works out there but some of you have even chosen my rendition for their covers. I know they’re not perfect but your continued support, despite my shortcomings, energizes me to keep doing this. All the headaches and the sleep-deprived nights that I have endured just to make these translyrics were all worth it.

My journey started at Youtube, where I then moved to Tumblr, and now, here we are. From there, you had shown your support for my translyrics. I was still grasping at those loose ends, trying to figure out how to improve. It was a roller coaster ride of emotions,but through your help, I was able to make it through. Thank you.

There’s going to be more posts in the future, that I assure you, so I hope that until those posts come, you’d still be there, patiently waiting.

I just want to thank you all for everything. I don’t think that I could last this long without your support.

Cheers!

My first Sawano! Yay!

Like most people, the first time I heard this song, I immediately fell in love with it and I knew that I would be enjoying listening to the OST when it comes out (which I really did uwu). I’m still getting used to mizuki’s vocals but I know it’ll soon grow in on me. I’d have to admit that I had a few pinch moments on the process of doing this since mizuki seems to be eating or slurring some of the words she’s saying, and her English/German is still on the improvement stage. But I know she’ll get past that soon. Let’s see next season.

Regarding the chorus parts, I played with it and considered the message of the song, and interpreted the mixed Japanese/English/German parts. I know some of you might have preferred the original but I wanted to experiment, and I think it could make sense (?) hahaha

Anyway, here is the Youtube link for the video lyrics, in case you want to check the timing and all.

Luna English Translyrics

I was so happy and thrilled and all when one of my favorite local bands, Up Dharma Down, released a Japanese version of Luna, one of my favorite songs from their recently released album, Capacities. I’ve been looping the song for hours and I asked myself, why not make an English Translyrics? Though the title is in English(?), the song’s in Filipino. And now that they’ve done the Japanese version, it’s only natural for me to create the English Translyrics. I do hope I did justice since it was made on a whim.

To Zanarkand (ザナルカンドにて) English ReFanlyrics

Back when I was really new in YouTube, I did an English fanlyrics for To Zanarkand, one of the two main themes (accdg. to wikia…) of Final Fantasy X. Well, couldn’t blame them for having this song dubbed as a main theme. This is such a beautiful melody and…it just speaks to you as if it was your soul.Unfortunately, my previous YouTube account got deleted and I wasn’t able to save a copy of my works there (despite the cringing it gives me…)

After a few years, I decided to take on this song another time. I admit the first time I did the lyrics were mostly about Yuna and Tidus, and I didn’t even know what Zanarkand is. So now, I want to grow out of that and evolve. I did read articles and explanations and stuff prior to making this so, hopefully, it’s a lot better and fitting now.

God, I ramble so much.

 

To Zanarkand English Fanlyrics

Music: Nobuo Uematsu

English Fanlyrics: shiHoReloaded

 

Dreaming ever since, listen to their hymn
Witness the memories live…again
Gather the lights in the haze…

Fly along the winds where their songs could never fade
Climb unto the hills where their souls are laid to rest
Feel the hearts who seek for their pats towards the calm
In this city that yearns for its end from all the harm

Longer than our forevermore
All these souls froze together
Longing for their salvation come
Trapped in the dark where no light ever shines

Dance above the waves of the past that never fades
Carve on every stone of the place to end the hate
March upon the road that will lead unto your death
In this city of dreams where the greatest one is made

Lives reborn and the lights unfurl
One more time…they are revived
Hymns are sung and their souls arrive
Into the place no Heaven can replace
