Dawning

[Explicit]

Get Flash to see this player.

Description
After the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear power plant's accident, I got tonnes of heartfelt messages from all over the world. Fortunately, I live in Tokyo and all my family and friends were safe. It was devastating to see the people in the northeast of Japan are suffering. In a time like this, those message really help me to believe that we aren't alone. So, I thought I wanted to do something to express how much we Japanese really appreciated all the kind words we received from the world. (Though I have no right to represent us!) It's been too long since I recorded music, so I guess I got rusty here and there.... Sorry about that!

Lyrics
First ray of the sun brushed my eyes
It was so quiet I didn't realize
the dream I was having slowly dissolving into
the dawning of a new day
A new day really came

I refused to turn on the PC
because all I would see
was blinding, breaking me
And I asked myself
"Did it really happen?"
I said
"It probably didn't"
Silence got broken by loud beeps
Earthquake alarm?
Or wake-up call?
Didn't bother to duck and cover
"Bring it. We're still here"

Hello hello
We're still here
Still here

Just wanted to say we aren't dead, you know
Just 'cause we lost our beds, it doesn't mean
we lost all we got
Saa, Boku-no Te-wo Totte Ikouyo (Come on. Take my hand and let's go)
You still got me
I still got you

It was a sunny day ironically
Everything was surreal
I couldn't believe
Our lives would never be the same
Nothing would be the same
But that may be okay

I got out and let my body soak
in the daylight. I wanted to cry
No sound came
Was ashamed
At the end of the day
That sky was just too pretty
to feel like shit
That sky was just too pretty
to feel like shit

Just wanted to say we aren't dead, you know
Just 'cause we lost our own beds, it doesn't mean
we lost all we got
Saa, Boku-no Te-wo Totte Ikouyo (Come on. Take my hand and let's go)
You still got me
I still got you

Thank you
Thank you for your comment, papag-san. I've put a little too many instrumentals in this track. So it was more challenging to find the right mix balance than my old tracks, but I think I did OK, aye? lol Thank you!

Shaken, And Positively Stirred
Glad to hear from you, my young friend. We were very concerned about you and all the other MacJammers in Japan, so it's very good to hear this positive musical message.

Another beautiful Pop production, Yusuke. You are a real talent. ;)

Thank you!
Hi Joe-san. Thank you so much for your kind words. I really hope other fellow MacJammers in Japan are safe, too. I had to travel to LA 2 days after the earthquake for business. It was very difficult to be away from home watching all these sad news at the time. It may not be the best time to live in Tokyo because of the failing nuke power plant, but I am glad I came back.

Thank you very much for taking time to listen to my song. I've uploaded this song at local Japanese music sites. Hopefully, I could reach some of the people in the destroyed towns who have internet access.

Hi Mark-san. Thank you very much for your comment! Many people have lost their jobs after the earthquake, and there will be more losing theirs... On top of the physical damages, we will soon face some serious economical depression to tackle with.

Great message
And great to hear you're safe and well. A great positive message and, even though you might feel a little rusty musically, you're still right on target. A really goos song to start my Sunday morning with. Thanks!

Thank you so much for your kind words. We could use a little positivity over here when the reality of the hardship is too strong to be ignored. I've been unable to complete a song for a long time until this, but I guess it was worth the struggle. It's really good to be back here. Thank you for listening!

Thank you very much for listening to my song and taking time to comment. Spring has finally arrived in Tokyo and cherry blossoms are blossoming! We'd usually drink hot sake outside appreciating cherry blossoms and get really drunk at this time of the year. I guess we won't be doing that this year.... Not in a mood anyway. Instead, I will make additional donate and pretend I had tonnes of sake!
