That’s Why I Gave Up On Music -Acoustic- (English Cover)【Will Stetson】「だから僕は音楽を辞めた」

December 9, 2019

Thought out but logic isn’t clicking
That sky when I longed to have you with me Tired breezes singing sweetly, as my mind
it comes alive and flies freely Hey, going forward oh, where will it take
me? Everything it just leaves me helplessly
Looking at me, smiling As I turned away and didn’t say a thing Thought out but logic isn’t clicking
Our youth is dull amount to nothing Giving up on the piano, but the sickening
beat, had taken over me Hey, and on oh where oh will it take me?
Far from all of the music you’re making? Go on living happily Pizzicato strings that sing I pluck a heart-made
melody Long without me they never lose beat, when
they’re out of reach ever fondly Oh I, carry their light And I’ll never know, I don’t care to know
Just go on and let go All of this “love” for your life, for
the world and the sky, they cry, while never knowing why
They want to know, be told down where to go But that’s just how life flows
It’s your fault that, I couldn’t say so Thought out but logic isn’t clicking
Forced now to face the future I’m resisting “I’ll fade on to nothing,” and the stinging
in my chest it burns right on to the ending “Where am I headed in the future?”
Growing up I can’t speak up a single word Stuck in frozen terms How do I explain the hate I feel watching
that happy face? What do they have that’s missing?
Stuck there on the side I’m watching–a ghost
I follow every step but still don’t know I’m not wrong to live! And in spite of this
We still all are human Lacking “love” for your life, for the
world and the sky, you cry, while never knowing why
That painful sting when you’re listening Is just proof you’re living
Not that I care though, all just your whim Thought out but logic isn’t clicking
Why does it hurt to keep on breathing on and living?
Why can’t you make a living writing music? It’s fine if all the words I write are useless Not like I care though
Yeah I’m sure I wasn’t wrong Yeah I’m sure I wasn’t wrong…
And I swear I wasn’t wrong… Yeah the fault was mine, all through my life
I couldn’t read the signs All of this “love” for your life, for
the world and the sky, they cry, I couldn’t tell you why
They want to know, be told down where to go But that’s just how life flows
It’s all your fault that, I couldn’t say so There was once a time I dreamed too
Now the feelings have all broke through misuse So long that I had written for you
I don’t really care about the fame, you know my love was true
I felt it, more than I knew That’s how I had felt then too
That’s why I’m done with it That’s why I’m done with it
All my notes Died with you

    Listening to a song for the first time is understanding everything and nothing because every five seconds the message of the song in your eyes changes.

    Am I alone in feeling like this whenever I listen to something? Am I having medical problems? Obligatory comment about how this cover slaps that I couldn't fit in previously in my joke? Chuck Norris delivered a kick that could shatter bones into my crotch? What's the deal!

    Amazing things about this:
    1. The way he managed to harmonize "piano" in the same way as the og.
    2. The emotion in that last "I swear I wasn't wrong"
    3. How every single time he manages to keep the translations so close to the original and without it losing a single thing about the meaning of the song.
    4. Literally everything else. I will fight whoever dislikes this beautiful piece of art.
    I adore every single one of these Yorushika covers with all my heart. Please keep up the amazing work.

    I absolutely love your covers of yorushika songs (the rest of your covers are also amazing, but yorushika is one of my favourite bands). I've honestly been trying to learn a lot of yorushika songs on guitar, but I can never find very good sheet music for it, and I'm not the greatest at picking up by ear. But hearing your covers always makes my day, keep up the great work. 🙂
