BACK-ON – RAIN | Lyrics

Show All   1 2 3 4

It might seem a surprise to everyone for us to release the lyrics for RAIN out of the blue, but with thanks to nosoul4u and ookami (Forum Moderator!), who have both said on the Forums how much they would like to have the lyrics, I finally got round to sitting still for 2 hours to type them up. ;)

RAIN is from the New World mini-album, which Back-on released at the end of 2006, and is quite a feel good song. Surprisingly (for me anyway) it was actually the longest song on the CD (4:03) probably because of the long musical interlude in the third half of the song. It’s definitely a grower, although I have to admit I like Teeda‘s rap part the best, even though he’s uber fast, particularly in the second verse, I had to slow down the tempo by almost 40%.

Interestingly though, Kenji03 sings a word in the first line of the chorus slightly differently to the usual pronunciation:

where 時 is usually pronounced as “toki” (or “doki” if time of ‘something’ but this is not used in this song) but “toku” is sung instead.

You can find the original kanji below, romaji on page 2 and the romanised version on page 3, with page 4 featuring the hybrid/karaoke mix of kanji and romanji.

[Verse 1]
Standing alone wet. Upside down the 砂時計
当然のように隣にいた君そう忘れない Memory
I can only hear the rain’s melody & 金木犀の香り
I couldn’t ask you to wait 『ちょっと待ってくれ!』 なんて意地を張ってあの時言えなくて…
水溜リの波も広がってただ… 1人立ち尽くす雨の中で

[Interlude 1]

[Chorus 1]
wow wow
今も君の笑顏想い出して切なくなる胸焦がす RAIN

[Verse 2]
So dark & hard to breathe 全て Freeze
君と離れて初めてわかるこの気持ち you know what I mean
一緒にいた日々あのストーリー今じゃとても愛しく思う轍 I don’t know how to say it! 映し出す二人の形
Looking up all you see are the drops. この思いで震わす ear drums
自分勝手だったなんて今になってため息なんかついて… oh baby rain

[Interlude 2]
サヨナラをした また会えると思って

[Chorus 2]
繰リ返し聞いて うつむいた
wow wow
どしゃぶりの RAIN

[Musical interlude]

* Repeat [Chorus 1]
