One of the most touching anime songs that I heard and, most especially, understood without the aid of subtitles is the opening song from The Count of Monte Cristo. Now, though I'm not fond of posting songs, I decided that this one's well worth posting and I recommend that you atleast read the lyrics. ^_^

Most of you, assuming that you're one of my friends/classmates from 4JRN1, do not know or even heard this song. However, I recommend that you atleast read the first and second stanza and lets see if you won't like it. By then, if you weren't able to appreciate the lyrics of the song then you are officially a senseless, unappreciative, waste of space and Oxygen. Enjoy! :D


WE WERE LOVERS
opening song of the anime Count of Monte Cristo
sung by JEAN JACQUES BURNEL

Harsh words were said
and lies were told instead.
I didn't ever mean to
make you cry.
But love can make us
weak and make us strong,
and before too very long.
I was totally in love with
you.
I bathed in you.
Lost in you, captivated by
you.
Amazed by you, dazed by
you.
Nothing can go wrong.
Nothing can go wrong.
Nothing can go wrong.

So tonight I'll sing
a song to all my friends.
Also to those we won't be
seeing again.
To those I knew and
those I still adore
and I want to see once
more.
I just pray that you will
love me
and trust me.
Laugh with me and cry
with me
spend those silent times
with me.
Love me evermore.
Love me evermore.
Love me evermore.

You and I were lovers.
Our dreams were not
soured by life.
And then my friends'
betrayal
meant you never would be
my wife.

Harsh words were said
and lies were told instead.
I didn't ever mean to
make you cry.
But love can make us
weak and make us strong,
and before too very long.
I was totally in love with
you.
I bathed in you.
Lost in you, captivated by
you.
Amazed by you, dazed by
you.
Nothing can go wrong.
Nothing can go wrong.
Nothing can go wrong.

i haven't heard the whole song but heard few lines of it whenever the commercial is aired on animax.. but just basing on the lyrics, i still prefer Ayashi no Ceres' songs over it. Lalo na yung One at Cross my heart.. the English translation of it, though. or siguro i'm too in love with love kaya ganon. =D

Uy, narinig ko na yan. Ganda nga. But I don't totally appreciate CoMC, I'm too overwhelmed by the graphics and their "texturized" clothes and hair. Then, one episode, I saw them in a spacecraft of some sort. Weird. Ehe.

Anyhoos, I'm at this site doing jumping jacks and cartwheels. ^_^

I like The Count of Monte Cristo, and that song too. Especially when Eugenie played it on the piano at the end, it's like everything fell into place (finally!) heheh.

hi! thanks for posting the lyrics here in your blog. i was looking for it, and wasn't able to find it in one anime lyrics search engine. i really love this sad song..and i like the anime, too. it makes me sad though..

nwei, thanks again. :)

do you know "miagetegoran yoru no hoshi wo", the ending song of TWIN SPICA (or futatsu no spica)? it's also an anime. i also love the melody of that song and the way it was performed, but it's in japanese. i don't understand very much. i was just wondering if you also have that one. hehe!

again, thanks. :)
