Art for the ears!

For the past month (or more!) I've been slaving over my word processor and animelyrics.com song translations to do a.... songlation (?) of Melissa, my absolute favorite of the FMA openings. I also wanted to be the first to sing it, but... well... Melissa doesn't have a karaoke, and the voice-cancelling thing doesn't work at all. SO, you get the original annoyingly in the background whilst I sing in teh foreground, not always on key and sometimes messing up my own lyrics XD;;

Enjoy!

I took a few creative liberties with the translations I found, but those spots are few and far between (one being the last line of the first chorus. It's actually more like "pacify my heart that's made anxious by love" but by the time I wrote what I put, I liked it too much and didn't want to trash it for something potentially less wonderful).
Most of the time I poetic-ized it as best I could line by line... that's about where my creativity draws the line XD

Memories of days, oh so far away, part them with those hands I hold so dear
The sadness in your sigh forever can be conquered only if you try
Aah, take my anxious heart and pacify it with your love!


Looking up into tomorrow’s never ending sky
I don’t know if I can trust my lost heart to find it’s way all alone
Birds beside me take their leave of me and fly away
I can’t help but wonder if they have a light that helps them guide their way home

Come now, take me on a ride, let me use your wings to soar into the sky
Feelings that I thought I had abandoned long ago up on the highest mountain, I wanna fly above them so much higher


Memories of days, oh so far away, part them with those hands I hold so dear
The sadness in your sigh forever can be conquered only if you try
Aah, take my anxious heart and pacify it with your love!


I watched intently as the birds flew off into the night
I am trapped forever right here and earth bound with only the wind by my side
Instead of wings there is something I want so much more
To be leaves, with the soft scent of melissa, dancing ‘round in midair

I try time and time again, to stand up straight and tall but still I topple down
But I’ve learned that this is simply not the answer. I’ll let the wind take me, hold me up and support me, won’t go against it!


Do not hesitate, hold your hands out straight. Take the key that rests within your reach
Even if you’re wrong, even if it never opens up again
Come on, pick your spirits up and let me hear that lock fall down!


A soul that can’t be saved, see it drift away, fading out until it disappears
Though it may be gone in its wake it leaves a faintly warming glow
See now, the newly moulded sky beginning with a moonlit night!
