Song: "The Beginning" by One OK Rock from the Rurouni Kenshin Live-Action Movie soundtrack.

I just got home from watching Rurouni Kenshin and it was freaking awesome. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around all of the awesomeness... Takeru Satoh as Kenshin was soooo good! The cinematography and the fight scenes were so awesome, too fast for the eye sometimes, but it gives you that sense of fast action that you don't get with slower, more choreographed action. Somehow the 3-hour movie was too short for me, even. I want to go back and watch it again!!

So this is a cherry blossom set inspired by one of my favorite scenes in the movie. I can't believe I actually burst into tears for that one.

The Beginning
(One OK Rock / Rurouni Kenshin OST)

Just give me a reason 
To keep my heart beating 
Don’t worry it’s safe right here in my arms 
As the world falls apart around us 
All we can do is hold on, hold on 

Take my hand 
And bring me back 

I risk everything if it’s for you 
I whisper into the night 
Telling me it’s not my time and don’t give up 
I’ve never stood up before this time 
Demo yuzurenai mono itta kono te wo hanasanai 

So stand up, stand up (Just gotta keep on running) 
Wake up, wake up (Just tell me how I can) 
Never give up 
Kuru wa shimi hodo setsunai 

Just tell me why baby 
They might call me crazy 
For saying I’d fight until there is no more 
Urei wo fukunda senkougankou wa kankakiteki shoudou 
Blinded, I can’t see the end 
So where do I begin? 

Say not a word, I can hear you 
The silence between us 
Nanimo nai you ni utsuteru dake 
I take this chance that I make you mine 
Tada kakusenai mono kattate yori misekakete 

So stand up, stand up (Just gotta keep on running) 
Wake up, wake up (Just tell me how I can) 
Never give up 
Kanashimi to setsunasa 

Just give me a reason 
To keep my heart beating 
Don’t worry it’s safe right here in my arms 
Kudaketenaide saite jita kono omoi wa 
So blinded I can’t see the end 

Look how far we made it 
The pain i can’t escape it 
Kono mamajya mada owarase koto wa dekinai deshou 
Nando kutabarisou demo kuchi hateyou tomo owariwanaisa 
So where do I begin? 

Nigirishimeta ushinawanu youni to 
Te wo hirogereba koboreochisou de 
Ushinau mono nado nakatta hibino dasei wo sutete…kimi wo 

Just tell me why baby 
They might call me crazy 
For saying I’d fight until there is no more 
Fureri ukanda senkougankou wa kangakiteki shoudou 
Blinded, I can’t see the end 

Look how far we made it 
The pain i can’t escape it 
Kono mamajya mada owaraseru koto wa dekinai deshou 
Nando kutabarisou demo kuchi hateyou tomo owariwanaisa 
It finally begins...


Translation:

Just give me a reason
To keep my heart beating
Don’t worry it’s safe right here in my arms
As the world falls apart around us
All we can do is hold on, hold on

Take my hand
And bring me back, yeah

I risk everything if it’s for you
I whisper into the night
Telling me it’s not my time and don’t give up
I’ve never stood up before this time
But the thing I can’t even yield, I can’t let go of this hand that I held

So stand up, stand up (Just gotta keep on running)
Wake up, wake up (Just tell me how I can)
Never give up
It’s painful as much as it’s crazy

Just tell me why baby
They might call me crazy
For saying I’d fight until there is no more
The selecting glint in your eye that holds sadness is nearly a sense of urge, right?
Blinded, I can’t see the end
So where do I begin?

Say not a word, I can hear you
The silence between us
Just reflecting like there is nothing
I'll take this chance so that I'll make you mine
The thing that cannot be hidden, pretending like it’s decorated

So stand up, stand up (Just gotta keep on running)
Wake up, wake up (Just tell me how I can)
Never give up
Even if it's through sorrow and pain

Just give me a reason
To keep my heart beating
Don’t worry it’s safe right here in my arms
I think this is crumbling, crying and falling down while it has bloomed
So blinded I can’t see the end

Look how far we've made it
The pain i can’t escape it
At this rate I still cannot end it, huh
Even if I nearly die so many times, even if I nearly decay, there is still no ending in my sight
So where do I begin?

I grasped hold of it tightly so I won't ever loose it
Because if I open my hands, then it'll just escape my grasp
There was nothing to make me lose you who just abandoned your habit

Just tell me why baby
They might call me crazy
For saying I’d fight until there is no more
The selecting glint in your eye that holds sadness is nearly a sense of urge, right
Blinded, I can’t see the end

Look how far we've made it
The pain I can’t escape it

At this rate I still cannot end it, huh
Even if I nearly die so many times, even if I nearly decay, there is still no ending in my sight
It finally begins...
