YOU know I love you and I love your ambitious music choices. The Japanese rock is great! Was I not absolutely behind the Summer Sonic 2013…(featuring our Korean fav’s:CNBLUE and FT ISLAND) Well, your latest obsession has pulled me in. I thank you!

人生 x 僕=  One OK ROCK is awesome! I know I said I was not ready to jump this deep in the language world, but I was wrong. I can like it, I DO like it. This album from 2013, has so many winners, I can’t find a song to hate.

Ending Story?, ONION, The Beginning….all great. Be the light…well, it’s a wonderful tribute written for something so terrible. You never know then something tragic will happen and this kid TAKA writes a song like BE THE LIGHT.

Not just that song, TAKA wrote most of them or co-wrote them with the exception of 2 songs on the album. JUVENILE…another great example of wonderful verbal content. You can be loud and still get your words and your feelings across.

At the very least my instinct should say NO….too loud, guitars grind too much, DRUMS…too much pounding! BUT I LOVE IT! I will even admit I turn it up at the lights and crack my car window a little so the other drivers know I’m cool. (as if they could know just how cool I am-ha)

NOTHING HELPS….

English Lyrics

No nothing helps
We won’t stop right now
We did it on our own
Nobody else
It’s because of you I’m standing here with you

Gimme some more
Gimme some more

Oh Yeah OK I’ve got bad days
so caught up in my mind and I’m
Not really sure who I am
and nothing seems to go my way at all

Then I hit the stage and remember
why I’m here
I’ll be the voice
to those who don’t have one
and never forget
the road back

No nothing helps
We won’t stop right now
We did it on our own
Nobody else
It’s because of you we finally came this far
And on and on another song
to write the wrongs that I
Tell me who else?
It thanks to all of you
that I could find my own way

Any longer and I’ll know
each and every day every show
gotta give my best with innocence
It could be all taken away in a minute

There are things I always remember forever
Oh no
How can I walk this rocky road?
and never regret
I’ll never know

I just have to go

No nothing helps
We won’t stop right now
We did it on our own
Nobody else
It’s because of you we finally came this far
And on and on another song
to write the wrongs that I
Tell me who else?
It thanks to all of you
that I could find my own way in this maze

I’m by myself
stuck inside my throat
The words they won’t come out
Oh what the hell
Why don’t I just leave, give up and let it
all go away

But then I see your face and remember
why I’m here

No nothing helps
We won’t stop right now
We did it on our own
Nobody else
It’s because of you we finally came this far
Tell me who else?
It thanks to all of you
that I could find my way
Somebody else
Will someday come and then take my place
And so the story goes

All what I can do for you
All what you will want me to
All what you can see me through
Will someday come
The story goes

    Reblogged this on deslyoness and commented:
    Same here x) I’d never thought I’d like music that’s so loud….screaming and stuff…
    But Taka and his friends (OOR) have totally charmed me….even more after I was able to see them live in Bonn.
    They are great, the music, the lyrics, the performance, everything.

    • they are coming to LA in February 2014. My friend has tickets. I still think I cannot afford another concert (and the 8 hour drive) But the more I listen to them…the more I feel, how can I not go??

        that’s right, how can you not go! x) I was at their concert in Bonn recently, it was soo GREAT!!! Really, it is something you shouldn’t miss if you have the chance to go!! I wish you the best of luck, so you can go there!!!!!
        I’m thinking of starting to save money although I don’t know when they’ll come again…because I can’t afford not going…psychologically x) lol..

    It has been so great reading all the fan accounts of their tour through Europe. Can’t wait to see them in the States!

    I am One Ok Rock from Malaysia~ One Ok Rock is the first band that I love all of their songs! I’m glad I found them through youtube. I can enjoy all of this band songs. Taka’s voice, Toru’s guitar, Ryota’s bass and Tomoya’s drums is so great! I will try my best to watch them in live performance someday! ~★
