I’ve been ignoring everyone I’ve been wandering around I’ve been deceived everything at that time Then you appeared in front of me You ignited my pale heart We’ve been looking for each other from now on Save you! Sacrificing everything for Blurry fates we cannot see I won’t let our pain be wasted So I’ll tear down sadness, live what can be Get away from me Get away from dark nightmare Just now chip at your heart We just fight for freedom Through the arguments Through the haze of it I just want to lift you out of this pain I will share your fate Every time I take a breath Panic bleeding from my lungs The frustration that I feel is real Everything that we two have Though it sets an even keel Keeps a fire burning deep inside my heart--I need you Fueled by violence deep inside me I’m fearless, going all out Get away from me Get away from dark nightmare Just now chip at my heart I hold tight your freedom As we move through sludge Trudging on as one I will fight my demons knowing I can’t run from my own past now [instrumental] Yesterday I realized that I don’t have to be alone Today you stood up with me, you held your own Will we hold to tomorrow or is that only a dream? Let's walk together, hold hands with me Sacrificing everything for Blurry fates we cannot see I won’t let our pain be wasted So I’ll tear down sadness, live what can be Get away from me Get away from dark nightmare Yeah, we don’t wanna go through that again The time to act is now Can you hear the chapel bells ringing? Yeah, get away from me!
The original song comes to us from Blue Encount, and I’ve included the sung short version (opening version) below borrowing backtrack from Reiva Piano on YouTube if you want a feel for how the lyrics above (long version) flow with the music. (I’ve also noticed mobile users might have trouble seeing verse boxes when away from their PC.) When I get a mic that isn’t my phone, I’d like to try recording the long version more formally.
Banana Fish, like Given, had a big impact on me, and it remains a favorite title of mine. ❤
Until next time…
…stay home when you can, wear a mask when you can’t, wash your hands, and stay safe.
