Mayday

Do You Ever Shine Japanese Song and Lyrics – Mayday (五月天)

Last updated on 24th January 2021, Sunday

Today I am sharing this Japanese song by a favourite Taiwanese Band of mine. If you are following my blog, you will probably hear more about them in the future because I love them! XD

They are called Mayday which doesn’t mean SOS but rather a literal translation from their Chinese name 五月天 where 五月 means May and 天 means sky. I have no idea why they are not called May Sky but doesn’t Mayday sound so much better? XP

The reason I am sharing this is purely because I need a place to keep the lyrics where I can access anywhere, anytime since I am trying to learn this song by heart and as it is a very fast song, it’s a bit difficult to learn it just by listening. Though that is usually what I do with their songs, this is in Japanese!

Of course I can keep the lyrics in my phone or my email but I want to share good stuff and this song is quite nice, especially the guitar portion! XD

(I will input the translations when I find them.)

This song is called Do You Ever Shine and it is also the opening song for a Japanese drama “Bitter Blood”. Lyrics are written by Takeshi Kobayashi (小林武史) who is well known for being the producer of Japanese rock band, Mr. Children. As for the music/ melody, it is by Ashin (阿信), the lead singer of Mayday.

This is the Japanese version of Do You Ever Shine~

First line is the original lyrics.
Second line is the original lyrics in hiragana only. (which i can read better)
Third line is the original lyrics in romaji. (like how you read English)

 

(I love the guitar solo which you can hear at 3:01 of this MV. XD)

I bought this album in Tokyo when I went over in June. Imagine how happy I was when I realised the date it was released coincides with my travel dates~ XD

Just realised resolution for my iPad mini (second and third pics) is worse than my iphone 4 (first pic), which I already thought was bad. = =
