glee: ballad

youtube

Am I the only one here who loves H!P’s ballads and mellows? TokiSora(oh yes!), Shouganai Yume Oibito, Summer Wind(another yes!), Aitai Lonely Christmas, Aa Susukino, Kaze ni Fukarete, Koi wa Magnet, Kobushi no Hana(yes pls!), etc. are so pleasant to my ears that I don’t get why people don’t like songs like these. Mellow songs are life… yeah, for me, it is. <3

English Lyrics


You keep expecting things from me
But don’t fool yourself, you’re just fooling yourself
You might dream of eternal love
But it’s just harder as time goes by

Don’t cross the line, this distance right now is good
Don’t ask me what we’re doing
Just make love, just do love yeah
Yeah, look at me, can you see what I want?

A love that’s so hot that I wanna take my hands off cuz it burns
I don’t want that ever again
A love that’s slightly cold, that’s cool enough
That’ll be better
Like having the Milky Way between your planet and my star
If only we have that perfect space
Nothing more, nothing less, it’ll be good
Can you understand me?

Time keeps ticking, I have to go
You know this, why’re you acting up?
Don’t want this so badly, don’t give too much
Adjust to me a little more

I know I’m bad, it’s true I’m selfish
But I’m hurting too, don’t you know?

A love that’s so hot that I wanna take my hands off cuz it burns
I don’t want that ever again
A love that’s slightly cold, that’s cool enough
That’ll be better
Like having the Milky Way between your planet and my star
If only we have that perfect space
Nothing more, nothing less, it’ll be good
Can you understand me?

Actually, I’m scared
Don’t hate me for this
But then again, I hope for love again
Once again, love

A love that’s so hot that I wanna take my hands off cuz it burns
I don’t want that ever again
A love that’s slightly cold, that’s cool enough
That’ll be better
Like having the Milky Way between your planet and my star
If only we have that perfect space
Nothing more, nothing less, it’ll be good
Can you understand me?

Ballad - Journey of My Hijab

I love these few verses I made for my ballad. What do you all think? 


At age 14, I began to wear my hijab with such pride

Wearing it like a cape, rather than a disguise

I stood my ground and held my tongue, until it went numb

Even when they told me, “to go back to where you are from!”
