Forever – Monkey Majik (MV)

I love love love Monkey Majik!!! They’re my kind of music!

This is the most beautiful song and PV (they call it PV or promotional video in Japan) of the group. It’s called Forever.

This PV is beautiful because instead of the group singing they have contracted special people to do the singing. I love the concept of people coming together and singing. The lyrics of the song is a very touching one and it’s not just the romantic kind of love but it’s love in general — romantic, parental, friendly… all kinds of love that exists in the world!! ^_^

For the unfamiliar, the group is from Japan and they are composed 2 Canadian brothers and 2 Japanese men. Both the Canadian brothers are fluent in Japanese mind you, so when you listen to their song, you seem to hear a native singing. To me I love the husky and mellow voice of the singer. His voice would fit a rock band but at the same time it one you would love to hear singing a ballad… i would like to call it the best of both worlds. They have had several hits in Japan and I recommend them if your experimenting on listening to a Japanese rock ballad.

In the PV you would hear several people sing it… but this is the Monkey Majik version of the song:

And of course I want to share the lyrics to the song…

Forever (Romanization)

It’s a beautiful world
Sora ni tabi ni de you
You know it feels right
Yabureta chizute ni shite
Tomatta sekai ugokasu… kotae

Tsuki no youni
Tsumetakute kanashii
Fusagi konda, won’t you come and shine on me
Kimi to iu na no hikari
Mabushiku

Loving you forever
Utsukushiku kagayaku
I’ve got you, you’ve got me
Yorisotte
Sono hoshi no hate made
Doko made mo together
Yasashiku aoku

(Uh, hey!)
The way that you walk
The way that you talk
Seasons will change
Kids get new names
‘FAME’ it’s just another couple saying
We should try to go and better ourselves
Well at the end of the day
All you see is yourself
Awatenaide, I look in the mirror realize
Just a glance will paralyze
And convince you otherwise
The contentment that you knew
I’m guilty of it, too
Owari no nai, tabi mada mada tsudzuku

[PV version:
What a wonderful world
Ai wo sagashi ni
Kodoku to jiyuu poketto ni tsumete
Awatenaide I’m just gonna keep the pace
Cause I’m learnin’ all the time
I need you by my side]

Okizari ni shita mama no negai
Kimi to iu na no hikari
Terashite

Loving you forever
Utsukushiku kagayaku
I’ve got you, you’ve got me
Yorisotte
Sono hoshi no hate made
Doko made mo together
Yasashiku aoku

Ima futari ga hitotsu ni natte
Sekai ga mawaridasu

Loving you forever
Utsukushiku kagayaku
I’ve got you, you’ve got me
Yorisotte
Sono ushi no hate made
Doko made mo together
Yasashiku aoku

I just wanna live forever (lalalala)
Always will kept in my heart
[PV: Always will you be in my heart]
Always be with me together
Love one another
Always in my heart, you’ll be

Forever (English Translation)

It’s a beautiful world
Let’s fly away into the sky
You know it feels right
With a worn out map as our guide
Tryin’ to move a world that’s stopped we’re searching for…the answer

Looking like the moon
Cold and sad’s as it seems to be
Feeling down and out
Won’t you come and shine on me
You’re the perfect light of my life
Shining brightly

Loving you forever
Shine so beautiful and brightly
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
Holding each other
From the world’s end to another
No matter where we go together
Tenderly into the blue

Uh, hey
The way that you walk
The way that you talk
Seasons will change
Kids get new names
“Fame” is just another cover saying
We should try to go and better ourselves
Well at the end of the day
All you see is yourself
So settle down now go look in the mirror realize
Just a glance will paralyze
and convince you otherwise
The contentment that you knew
I’m guilty of it, too
It’s not over yet, our journey will still continue on

[PV version:
What a wonderful world
Looking all around for love
I’ve filled my pocket up with freedom and loneliness
So settle down now I’m just gonna keep the pace
Cause I’m learnin’ all the time
I need you by my side]

All those wishes there just as we left them behind
You’re the perfect light of my life
Shining on me

Loving you forever
Shine so beautiful and brightly
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
Holding each other
From the world’s end to another
No matter where we go together
Tenderly into the blue

Now the two of us are becoming just as one
The world is turning round and round

Loving you forever
Shine so beautiful and brightly
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
Holding each other
From the world’s end to another
No matter where we go together
Tenderly into the blue

I just wanna live forever
La la la la
Always will come in my heart
[PV: Always will you be in my heart]
Always will we be together
Love one another
Always in my heart you’ll be

Forever (Kanji)

It’s a beautiful world
宇宙(そら)に旅に出よう
You know it feels right
破れた地図手にして
止まった世界動かす…答え

月のように
冷たくて悲しい
塞ぎ込んだ
Won’t you come and shine on me
キミと云う名の光
眩しく

Loving you forever
美しく輝く
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
寄り添って
その星の果てまで
どこまでも together
やさしく蒼く

Uh, hey
The way that you walk
The way that you talk
Seasons will change
Kids get new names
“FAME”is just another cover saying
We should try to go and better ourselves
Well at the end of the day
All you see is yourself
慌てないで go look in the mirror realize
Just a glance will paralyze
and convince you otherwise
The contentment that you knew
I’m guilty of it too.
終わりのない 旅まだまだ続く

[PV version:
What a wonderful world
愛を探しに
孤独と自由ポケットに詰めて
慌てないで I’m just gonna keep the pace
Cause I’m learnin’ all the time
I need you by my side]

置き去りにしたままの願い
キミと云う名の光
照らして

Loving you forever
美しく輝く
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
寄り添って
その星の果てまで
どこまでも together
やさしく蒼く

いま二人が一つになって
世界が廻りだす

Loving you forever
美しく輝く
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
寄り添って
その星の果てまで
どこまでも together
やさしく蒼く

I just wanna live forever
La la la la
Always will come in my heart
[PV: Always will you be in my heart]
Always will we be together
Love one another
Always in my heart you’ll be

I totally love Monkey Majik!!
