Door of Youth

Lately I have been addicted to Ikimonogakari. At first it was the vocalist's voice, fragile yet leaving such a strong impression. Then it was the melody, catchy but not in a pop-ish way, strong in an endearing way. Then finally, the whole thing is complete. The lyrics are just amazing. This is one of my favourite songs from them and the words behind portrays my current feelings too well. So well that, it eased my fear.

The Door of Youth

An unopened door
Looms before us
Wanna take a look inside?
This is our future, an unfamiliar world
~ I am scared of the future for its uncertainties but curious for all its possibilities.

I’ll give you the key
Make all your choices with that hand
Take a step, it’s OK
The fear in your heart will become “strength”
~To be given the key is like to be given the freedom to make decisions on your own. Which it turns out, is a scary thing to do. But gradually, we will learn from mistakes we make. Then, the fear will become strength.

La la la, la la la, the bells ring out
Telling us when we’ll be reborn
We can be strong, see
Open the door of youth
~ Accepting your future and all it has coming for you, is the first step to being strong.

Take one step, then two
Our path is just beginning
We can look back
When we’ve reached our destination
~We can always take baby steps, as long as we are going forward. It is also implying that we should believe in attaining our dreams, and until then there should not be hesitations or doubts (as in looking back).

Throw away your predicted map
And make sense of things with your own eyes
If you reach out your hand, you can take it
The hesitation in your heart will become “power”
~There is no use in living life as directed by others. Live according to what you see, what you feel, what you want, what you believe in and who you are. Although this path is harder, but surely it will give you power.

La la la, la la la, the bells don’t stop ringing
Telling us when we’ll wake up from our dream
We can be strong, see
Open the door of youth
~ There is always a time when we need to stop dwelling in dreams and to take action.

La la la, la la la, the bells finish ringing
Singing of the time when we must set out
We can be strong, see
Open the door
~ There will be a time when you realize, on your own, that it is time for your journey to begin. To open the door a whole new world in your hands.
