瞳の住人 (Hitomi no Jyuunin)

–Living in Your Eyes–

I don’t know how long… but it’s been some time,
how much do I really know about you ?
following the map with my fingertips isn’t getting us anywhere,
I see how it distresses you in your face,
so much you try to conceal it.

It’s strange… how even as I run in circles
as if resisting my advance to a busy future
my heart still draws you.

When I looked up, the radiance had filled the sky
without losing any of its lustre.
If only we could be like that sun always shining.

I want to be embraced in your scent… if just a little longer
the outside air pulls my collar, but I turned my back to it.

my sighs blurring white in the air, inform me of the season.
going through it again, a thought occurred to me,
What am I doing here ?

I want to stay here watching you smile forever
I want to live each changing moment in your eyes,
in that one scene forever colored in gentle hues
to bring us close together, I want to stop time forever.

I want to stay here watching you smile forever
I want to live each changing moment in your eyes,
If one day I could bring you to a serene season
to the flowers blooming in the sky like snowflakes.
…to the flowers

That is the translations of L’arc~en~Ciel song, Hitomi no Jyuunin (The Apple of My Eye /Living in Your Eyes) A beautiful lyric created by a beautiful Ojisan and has beautiful melody composed by Tetsu Ojisan — Ojisan means Uncle, because they’re old enough to be my father XD—

A beautiful song with nice melody, I felt my eyes got teary when Hyde Ojisan voice hit a high note with his super falsetto technique, awesome !. I also felt something mysterious in the way he sings. How can this person sing a song with  all of his heart ?.

Back then, I really want to know what this lyric talk about. God, I’m lucky to live in this era, I can found what I want to know with so  fast. Oh… I love this lyric to the bones, I can feel his sincerity in every words that he wrote.  Sincerity of love, sincerity that make you protect someone who you loved as treasure. Sincerity that make you want to the someone that you loved  live forever in your eyes, in your memories.

I’m not big observer, but after listen this song and read the lyrics i bet… this song must be created for his wife, but many people said this song for his child. But after i read other site about this song, she analyze if this song it may actually be for the fans. This song is the 3rd single to be out from the 9th studio album, SMILE after the longest hiatus period. If you see the PV of this song, you will see it concept is destruction. Hitomi no Jyuunin’s PV is reversed and in slow motion. The ending of this video goes to show that all the destruction (hiatus) that the fans thought they witnessed was actually the start of something new – and they are back with a fresh start and with new ways of looking into things. I agree with her analysis, if you wants to read the full analysis please check her blog (here).

This is really beautiful PV and incredibly unique as well. By the way, back to the lyrics… for his wife, his child, or even L’arc~en~Ciel devotee, i think the way he expressed his love to them with deep lovely words so brilliant. This song fit to expressed your love to everyone, for parents even your friends, love so universal right ?…

The funny thing about Hyde Ojisan is many people said his lyrics almost like a modern poet. But, many people said hard to understand the meaning of his lyrics. That’s because he choose a difficult word in Japanese language, thus it make people hard to understand, and  hard to translate into English. So he must be explain what meaning of his lyrics to us with the simple words. Even its hard to understand but we absolutely love your lyrics ne… I can’t read Kanji or Japanese character, I only read his lyrics which had been translated, but would be nice if someday i could read the original lyrics in Japanese character.

Thank you Tetsu and Hyde Ojisan for created such a beautiful song for us…
