English translation: I'll never walk alone again, the winds of time are to strong. Ah, it's that what you hurts, which you'll have to live with... Ah, this tight embrace, and this burning, unchanged heart. In this ever changing time, love will never change.

Will you hold my heart? Stop flowing tears. Again, all of my heart is broken....

Forever love, forever dream Only flowing emotions,bury this intense, trying, meaningless times. Oh tell me why ... all I see is blue in my heart.

Will you stay with me? Wait until after the wind passes, all my tears are still flowing...

Forever love, forever dream Stay with me like this. Hold my trembling heart in the dawn. Oh stay with me...

Ah, everything good seems to be ending, in this unending night. Ah, what else would you lose if nothing at all matters.

Forever love, forever dream, stay with me like this. Hold my trembling heart in the dawn.

Oh will you stay with me... Until the wind passes, stay with me again.

Forever love, forever dream, I'll never walk this path. Oh tell me why, tell me true, teach me how to live. Forever love, forever dream, within flowing tears Bright seasons will forever change again and again .... forever love... About the song: Another gorgeous ballad written by Yoshiki. It's one of those songs that makes it very difficult not to cry while it's on. The more I listen to X Japan's songs, the more I love Toshi's voice. I only wish I had the talent that Yoshiki or Toshi has. Hopefully I'll get a chance to review some of their happier songs.
