English Lyrics: Adam Pulver
I wrote this one once. Then I stuck it in a fanfic. Then about a year later I looked at in and said "this sucks!" But after some soul searching, I decided to rewrite it completely from scratch. I'm not sure why, this is far from easy. The rhyme scheme is the hardest thing to pull out of this one, and finding a hook to go with "Jyukuuji no Nyuusu" is really tough. Oh well, here it is:

P.S.- I'm *not* doing Ultra Relax! Don't even ask!

7 O'Clock News

Now all these rumors say that I've got a crush.
And all these rumors say I'd rush to be by your side.
Oh don't you know that they're true?
I don't care if it's night or it's day.
Doesn't help if you fight me or run away.

Is it a problem if I enter your heart?
Is it a problem if I start to take your desire
And keep it all for myself?
When the Sun is fading off in the west,
When the kids are being put to rest,
Coming up- a story of us, our fiery affair,
They say it with flair. Listen up 'cause we're on the air...

Lead story tonight!
They'd say it right, it's a sight to see me and you.
Whoa, everyone will glow when that kiss is targeted true.
In a city that's dull and bland,
We'll make it grand, light it up with all of our fire.
Whoa, how can we go higher? 'Cause relationships are a sham,
If nobody gives a damn.

You know one night we will be showered with fame.
You know one night with that acclaim we'll be popular kids.
Who wouldn't want you and I?
Faced with these temptations we might give in.
So I'll hold you 'til we are corrupted by sin.

But when they see our faces light up the screen,
And when they see our faces preen they'll keep asking for more.
And we'll be quick to oblige.
Right now, we're getting our break.
Right now we are making no mistake.
Now I know, the story of us, our fiery affair,
Once they are aware, we'll be living without a care...

They'll hear it tonight!
We can't be quiet when we're left with nothing to hide.
No, there is nothing I can not do when you're by my side.
Someday we will be idolized.
They'll realize that are hearts are beating as one.
Nobody spoils our fun, we'll be left to envy the land.
Because we don't give a damn.

Now look what we have today,
You'd think that our dreams are far away,
But one day our fantasies will unfold...

Lead story tonight!
They'd say it right, it's a sight to see me and you.
Whoa, everyone will glow when that kiss is targeted true.
In a city that's dull and bland,
We'll make it grand, light it up with all of our fire.
Whoa, how can we go higher? If relationships are a sham,
They'll hear it tonight!
The world takes flight, and we'll be there pulling the strings.
We will have everything, we'll be left to envy the land.
Because we don't give a damn.
