Boldly Grow!

I hit a wall, I never felt so low, so low
Like a waterfall, my tears dropped to the floor, the floor
They left a swimming pool of salted crimes, crimes
Oh, what could I do to change your mind?
Nothing

I’m bracing for the pain and I am letting go
I’m using all my strength to get out of this hole

I hit a wall, I thought that I would hurt myself
Oh I was sure, your words would leave me unconscious
And on the floor I’d be lying cold, lifeless
But I hit a wall, I hit ’em all, watch the fall
You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer

Yeah I hit a wall, I prayed that I would make it through, make it through
I can’t survive a life that’s without you, that’s without you, yeah
And I will rise up from the ashes now, the ashes now
Oh, the sparrow flies with just the crumbs of loving spilled, yeah

I was bracing for the pain and then I let it go
I gathered all my strength and I found myself whole

I hit a wall, I thought that I would hurt myself
Oh I was sure, your words would leave me unconscious
And on the floor I’d be lying cold, lifeless
But I hit a wall, I hit ’em all, watch the fall
You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer

Emi Arigatō

Sad news just making it’s way to US fandom… one of the Peanuts, Emi Ito, died June 2012 at age 71. Along with her monozygotic twin, Yumi, they are best known as the original tiny fairies that summon Mothra. “Godzilla vs. The Thing (aka Mothra)” is one of the best Godzilla films of all time.

In this video the Peanuts sing, “Koi No Fuga” (“Fugue of Love”). Fugue is a musical term where harmonic voices “chase” after each other before interweaving. Thus the title is a play on words as they are singing in fugue style while the song relates to the chasing after a love that, by mutual decision, can never be.

Look what you can learn from the internets!!
