Song Lyric Sunday – Come/Go/Leave/Stay

This week has been a string of not so positive posts so I figured that instead of going for the first song that came to mind when I saw the theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday, I should go for a more positive song.

When the theme is come, go, leave and stay all at once, what it brings to my mind is someone urging someone else to come with him or her to go and leave this place to someplace better.

To some place where they can stay in peace.

With that in mind, the only song that really comes to mind is “Grand Escape” by RADWIMPS that was part of the movie “Weathering With You” soundtrack.

As we live our lives, we’re bound to come face-to-face with many things we do not like, challenges and hardships. However, that should never stop us in our tracks. The past and the present are but moments in time which we cannot return to. All we can do is to move forward with all our might.

Move forward to find or create that better place that lies ahead.

That place that lies beyond the present.

My thoughts are always fleeting. Writing is the only way I can remember all the things that once crossed my mind.

  1. K.A.L.T the lyrics in this song are beautiful and it ends with one of the prompt words.
    Instead of choosing wings to soar through the sky
    We  chose hands to hold with one another
    And  yet the sky still fascinates us
    Is it such a crime to keep on dreaming?

    Summer watches autumn from a distance
    And  I imagine what its face might look like
    Is  it full of admiration? Is it full of love?
    Whenever it is, it’s something I know could never transpire

    On  this once-in-a-millennium day, when gravity falls asleep
    Let’s stand where the sun can’t see us and leave this planet behind
    We’ll aim for a place where it can’t reach us, when it finally opens its eyes
    On three, let’s kick off the Earth and head for a different planet
    Let’s  go!

    Just a little bit farther beyond destiny
    Just a little bit farther beyond civilization (Let’s go!)
    Just a little bit farther beyond destiny
    Just a little bit farther

    We’ll spread these sails together, filled with all of our dreams
    And we’ll cross the night to reach a day we know must come
    Our hopes alone have been enough to fill our tanks
    And we’ve put our arms around each other, knowing we’ll get through it all somehow

    It’s not that we aren’t scared, but we still won’t stop
    Even if perils should wait ahead, that’s something we can’t change
    Our love speaks to us — a voice speaks to us
    It says, ”Go!”

    1. Glad you liked it 🙂
      If you’re willing to experience a bit of anime, you might want to check out the anime movie this song was from. The movie is called “Weathering with You” and you don’t need to watch any anime TV series beforehand cause it is a standalone film. 🙂

    1. Haha you should! Many say that it can’t beat Your Name but I managed to enjoy it just as much. Though it probably doesn’t mean much coming from someone who has enjoyed pretty much every Makoto Shinkai movie I’ve watched haha XD
