Kappa Neko Big fan of Takenobu since my college days. Somehow missed the release of this wonderful new album and only just started listening this week. "Conclusive" is perhaps my favorite instrumental track of all albums. It's so beautiful it makes me cry. Can't stop listening on repeat.
Swaying Trees is my second favorite, so sweet! Nobody Said is pretty great too.I hope the titel of this album is not indicative of being the last album we'll ever get. Favorite track: Conclusive.

Nobody Said 04:06
Lookin' back, I’ve been Lookin' back to All the times That we had It wasn't so bad It wasn't half-bad The moments, when we Had a chance to Slow it down and really get our heads Wrapped around each other, oh You know me so well You know me so well Nobody said it'd be easy Nobody said it would be Ganbaru ga muzukashii iro iro na inshii Nobody said it'd be easy Nobody said it would be Holdin' on, I keep Holdin' on to All the things that you said to me In the small hours of the morning Your words were such comfort Your words were such a comfort I guess you knew What I know now, oh You can't just hide away Savin' your troubles for the day When you feel like facin' 'em 'Cause I'm not gonna feel like facin' 'em Nobody said it'd be easy Nobody said it would be Ganbaru ga muzukashii Iro iro na inshii Nobody said it'd be easy Nobody said it would be Way back when, when we We used to know All the things that really mattered and Counted to you I wanna get that back now I wanna get that back Nobody said it'd be easy Nobody said it would be Ganbaru ga muzukashii Iro iro na inshii Nobody said it'd be easy Nobody said it would be

Come on, let me tell you about how we used to do it In the olden days Come on, let me tell you about All the forgotten ways I remember the feeling, it took me over So glorious Every fiber of my being was vibrating Harmonious There's nothing that's written anywhere that says I can't feel that way Again today There's nothing written anywhere that says I can't make it My own way Yeah, but it seems to get harder Yeah, but it seems to get harder Yeah, but it seems to get harder Yeah, well I seem to get harder Sometimes I tell myself it used to be So much easier But then again there's no use to fall So much deeper I'm not gonna tell you the grass Is always greener You can see that for yourself by becoming A believer And I fool myself Yeah, I like to fool myself And I fool myself Yeah, I like to fool myself

The water winds its way wanting somewhere else with no sense of self sings its babbling song The mountain pack is gone with spring and summer sun the snow melt will run over wintered moss (chorus) The branches far from bare the pollen in the air the potent love affair of the swaying trees the swaying trees The coldness in the earth will warm as a hearth as the blossoms burst like pastel fireworks A fairy ring will grow in the spot we know where the wolves won’t go where the lambs will sleep (chorus) The branches far from bare the pollen in the air the potent love affair of the swaying trees the swaying trees The thrasher in the leaves the thrushes in the trees the competition breeds such a symphony The season may be brief for growth after the grief the green is such relief from the winter gray As for you and me well we’ll just have to see only time will tell what the harvest brings to eat (chorus) The branches far from bare the pollen in the air the potent love affair of the swaying trees the swaying trees

Could one moment outshine years of history could it last and repeat and spin and it grows wider stretches beyond everything like a crack that opens a chasm yawning take this coin and make a wish don’t tell me about the abyss A fallen leaf that has caught the air swirling up without a care I would skip across the surface of a lake and all the ripples would expand and spread caught in waters of a reflecting pool Keeping calm, keeping on, keeping cool I’m tossing and turning Just let me turn in the brightest spot is in my eyes I wander out to watch the cold moonrise I’d look away to the growing gloom But I caught I caught a glimpse of a midnight bloom And I will walk on desert sands without no shoes and I will keep the calm when mirages come to view Holy water cannot wash away the pains Where’s the easy smile I saw upon your face? I’m tired and useless How could I lose it? All in a minute Let me forget it

It’s dark in the city Dark in the city And it’s all your own All your own Gone to the country I’m gone to the country To take a rest Take a rest Choice is yours Take the cure The choice is yours So hold on, hold on Here in the loam Here I’m at peace Here they’ll never know Tears never reach Lone when I came to you Lone when you came to me too What a coup But you knew Half of what I want Half is in the hunt Bag ‘em all Bag ‘em all What you find That is mine What you find You hold on, hold on Here in the loam Here I’m at peace Here they’ll never know Tears never reach No they don’t owe you No they don’t owe you
