My Will

About This Song:

Series: InuYasha
Placement: 1st Ending
Japanese Title: My Will
Time: 5:21
Style: Pop Ballad
English Lyrics: Adam Pulver
This was the single most requested song I have gotten since starting this site. After hearing the song I found out why. Very nice. Although I still am not a big InuYasha fan, I knew I had to get to this one eventually. While my new job and other creative obligations prevented me from doing much with the site, I finally managed to set aside some time and get it finished. I was a little afraid of rust, but with the help of my new rhyming dictionary I was able to get it the way I wanted to.

This is also the fifth time I have successfully inserted an English title into the lyrics when the Japanese never used it (ref: Butterfly, Evo, My Style, The Starry Sky). If it weren't for Successful Mission I'd be batting 1.000.

My Will

Quietly dreaming of you...

I can't stop wishing for you, forever.
But all my sentiments will come and go,
While I hope that one of them would touch you so.

I can't move forward anymore, doesn't matter how close to there we are.
I see a barricaded door, and there's nowhere else I can go.
All of the days we're kept apart. All the Xs marked on my calendar.
Once had a loud, empowered heart. Now the beat is starting to slow.

So, if a forever really can exist. I will believe it's true.
I don't care how long, I know single moments can change anything.
Though, seems that no matter what I hold inside, it gets the best of me.
But I won't give up, and I won't give in until I hold my all, my everything.

I can't stop thinking of you. No, never.
With the thought of you, I agonize.
It's enough to make a river from my eyes.
I can't stop wishing for you, forever.
But all my sentiments will come and go,
While I hope that one of them would touch you so.

All of my life had been a game. A charade suggesting an inner strength.
At some point the features I would claim, crept inside and started to grow.

So much that I want to share with you and so much that I want to see.
Every word from you, every side of you that I wish I'd known.
No, nothing is knocking on the door. Today's no better than before.
But I will not wilt, and I will not wait until my chance is made.
I'll make my own.

I can't stop thinking of you. No, never.
With the thought of you, I realize
It's enough to make my heart revitalize.
I can't stop wishing for you, forever.
But all my sentiments will come and go,
While I hope that one of them would touch you so.

I can't stop thinking of you. No, never.
With the thought of you, I agonize.
It's enough to make a river from my eyes.
I cannot get to you now.
But I know someday that my will will cross the stars.
And I know it will call you back to me.

Keep believing. Ah...
Keep believing. Ah...
Keep believing. Ah...
