Hello everyone,

Welcome back to my International Wonderland, it’s been a few days since J-pop week ended, but I am back with our favorite foreign music segment. There were a lot of songs I wanted to share last week, but it was impossible to fit all artists in one week.

The music video I will be sharing today is “Shinjitsu no Uta” by Do As Infinity.

Song cover for “Shinjitsu no Uta”.

I wouldn’t have discovered this band if it wasn’t for one of my favorite animes that I watched when was a teenager, which is “InuYasha”. I decided to share this particular song today because of its Japanese inspired sound. I find it very unique and different from your typical J-pop songs, plus the instrumental accompaniments are stunning. “Shinjitsu no Uta” was used as the fifth ending theme for the anime, “Inuyasha”, the song also debuted at number five on the Oricon charts. The vocalist of the band, Tomiko Van, always sings her songs with emotion and you can really tell that she puts her heart and soul into the creation of a song. I highly respect musicians like her who sincerely love their job and performing is their life. There are so many songs by this band that I love, but I will share them in future International Wonderland posts.

Enjoy and please let me know if you liked the song 🙂 See you on Friday for a new Friday Funday post!

ENGLISH LYRICS TRANSLATION

“the crimson-stained sun
has illuminated everything; now and the past
is what i have imagined within this twilight
more than my own hands can accomplish?

please teach me how to live
a little more vulnerably than i do now
won’t you taint me just a little?
that way, even if i get hurt
and lose everything around me
this song of truth will flow through my heart

this dispute will probably go on
about that which is most precious
i’ve become a rebel, i’ve overlooked things
even the gentle smiles of strangers

if eternity knows what manner of darkness
and when pain will vanish,
then that way, you shall taint me
i looked always to yesterday, to the castles in the sky
when will i be able to follow them?
this song of truth shall be my guide

if eternity knows what manner of darkness
and when pain will vanish,
this song of truth will flow through my heart

now, please, taint me just a little
please, just taint me, only a little

this song of truth shall be my guide”

See you on Friday for a Friday Funday post!
