[non-anime/ Trip Trip] Hello passing days by KOKIA
uploaded by MrAK0226
I’ve been in a KOKIA appreciation mode for a few days now, with this song on constant replay. Just like that, it went high up on my music library charts. It’s now my most played KOKIA track. It is really just that good. You have to listen to it. You’ll feel good. (Lyrics and English translation from Kiwi Musume)
KOKIA is probably the best artist I can think of when it comes to letting me experience a wide range of emotions with her (lyrical) music alone. Some songs sound melancholy, some just outright daunting. And Hello passing days, like majority of my favorite songs from KOKIA, is a very joyful song.
Apparently it’s a song about two people meeting. Fate is not the only reason for people to meet. Even though it is the fulfillment of a millionth chance, the moment of meeting is influenced by a lot of factors we can only imagine from the start. It’s not mere coincidence. As the saying goes, “everything happens for a reason.” When one makes a decision in life, he does not automatically see the outcomes. One small act today can have a big influence on the future. It’s a series of choices, decisions, and events—all beautifully intertwined in the stretch of a lifetime.
Look to your left and to your right. The people who you are with are the very people you—your choices, decisions, journey—have chosen. 🙂
