"We Are"

We are... They think that we're no one We're nothing, not sorry They push us It's too late, it's too late Not going back 夢は終わり 目を覚ます時 絶望や希望も 同時に目を覚ました 鏡に映った 僕が問いかける 自分を誤魔化し 生きることに意味はあるか When you're standing on the edge So young and hopeless Got demons in your head We are, we are No ground beneath your feet Now here to hold you 'cause we are, we are The colors in the dark 酷く痛む 鼓動は早く 遠のく景色を この手で掴もうとした They are the weakest They don't even know Anything they say Will never break our hearts of gold When you're standing on the edge So young and hopeless Got demons in your head We are, we are No ground beneath your feet Now here to hold you 'cause we are, we are The colors in the dark Never tell yourself You should be someone else Stand up tall and say I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid So never tell yourself You should be someone else Stand up tall and say I'm not afraid When you're standing on the edge So young and hopeless Got demons in your head We are, we are No ground beneath your feet Now here to hold you 'cause we are, we are The colors in the dark (English Lyrics) We are, we are We are, we are They think that we're no one We're nothing, not sorry They push us It's too late, it's too late Not going back They think we are made up Of all of our failures They think we are foolish And that's how the story goes They stand for nothing They're lifeless and cold Anything they say Will never break our hearts of gold When you're standing on the edge So young and hopeless Got demons in your head We are, we are No ground beneath your feet Not here to hold you 'Cause we are, we are The colors in the dark Now covered in madness But they just can't hurt us They tell us were nothing Keep walking and let it go They are the weakest And don't even know Anything they say Will never break our hearts of gold When you're standing on the edge So young and hopeless Got demons in your head We are, we are No ground beneath your feet Not here to hold you 'Cause we are, we are The colors in the dark Never tell yourself You should be someone else Stand up tall and say I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid So never tell yourself You should be someone else Stand up tall and say I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid When you're standing on the edge So young and hopeless Got demons in your head We are, we are No ground beneath your feet Not here to hold you 'Cause we are, we are The colors in the dark

Versus
WORD COUNT: 1270 WARNINGS: Not too dirty, but things do escalate. SUMMARY/WHATS BEEN HAPPENING: After saving you from Hongki, you end up staying the night with Taka at the hotel he is staying at. Are you going to go for him? CHARACTERS SO FAR: Hongki (FTIsland), Mari (Your best friend), you, Takahiro Moriuchi/Taka (One Ok Rock), T.O.P (Bigbang) was mentioned in part 1 - he will become a bigger part of the story later. PART: 2/? When we reached his hotel he helped me out of the taxi before paying. I watched the taxi drive off as Taka headed towards the main doors. With what had happened not too long ago, it was hard to focus on anything. I probably would have stayed outside and froze my ass off if Taka hadn’t noticed I wasn’t moving and came to my side once again. He linked our arms together and guided me through the tall doors and up to his room. Neither of us spoke a single word, even, after he sat me on the foot of the bed.     After handing me some clothes to change into for the night, he headed into the bathroom and I heard the shower turn on. I waited a few minutes before getting up to change. I slipped on a pair of blue boxers and a black shirt. I folded up my dress and placed it on the desk before crawling into the bed. I pulled the blankets up to my nose and closed my eyes, hoping that I could just fall asleep and end the day.     My eye’s shot open when I heard the water stop. I am not around many people, but I doubt that it is humanly possible to take such a short shower. When he came out of the bathroom he had one towel around his waist and another in his hands that was drying his hair. I felt his focus move to me and I closed my eyes, hoping he would ignore me and think I had already fallen asleep. Turns out, I am really good at fake sleeping. He walked over to his suitcase, which just happens to be across from me. When I opened my eyes to see where in the room he was, I got a pleasant surprise. Is cute little butt was an arms length away from me. I couldn’t help but smile. My cheeks turned instantly to a bright red when he turned around. I swallowed hard before looking up at him. He just smiled and walked to the other side of the bed and put his clothes on.     I was confused when I didn’t feel him lay next to me. My body slowly shifted so I could see where he had gone. I found him cuddled on the chair in the corner. I couldn’t help but feel bad, I just stole his bed. I got out of bed to try and convince him that I wouldn’t mind him sleeping on the bed with me.     “Please. It is your bed. We can sleep under different blankets, or even put pillows in between us.” I offered. He ignored my offer and pushed his eyes together. I didn’t have the energy to fight with him, but couldn’t just let him sleep on a chair. The only thing I could think of to do, without using much effort, was to lay on the floor and see what happens next.     I grabbed a pillow from the bed and placed it onto the floor before placing myself on it. A few seconds after getting comfortable on the floor, the pillow was snached from under my head. I looked up and saw Taka toss the pillow back onto the bed. I smiled and closed my eyes. I didn’t plan on getting up until he laid on the bed. Unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned. I was unexpectedly lifted from the ground and thrown over his shoulders.     “You really know how to convince a guy to sleep with you, huh?” he laughed. I struggled in his grip, but wasn’t freed until he placed me onto the bed. The only thing my body would let me do was smile. I watched as he crawled over me and laid down. He winked at me before turning away to sleep.     I should have just closed my eyes and tried to sleep, but there was just so much running through my mind. “Thank you… for earlier.”     “Your welcome. Please try and get some sleep. Part of me is scared for tomorrow. Who knows what is going to happen.” He said. I could tell by his tone that he was not tired at all. In fact, he sounded like he had much more to say. I wished he would continue talking.     I rolled over to look at him and he rolled over to look at me. After only a few seconds, he brought his face close to mine. He looked down at my lips, as if asking for permission to kiss me. I brought my bottom lip between my teeth before sliding my hand to the back of his neck to pull him closer to me. I placed my lips onto his and moved the blankets off of me so he could crawl on top of me.     Our lips never parted until his hands began to play with the hem of the shirt I was wearing. He paused our kisses and looked at me with the ‘Can I?’ look he had given me before. I took no time to help him get the shirt off, only for him to wrangle with my bra next. Once he got it off, his lips began to trail down my neck down to where the boxers were hugging my waist.     I pulled his face up to meet mine again and kissed him passionately. I snaked my hand into his boxers and began to stroke his hardened member. He hissed at my movements and I couldn’t help but smile. I began moving my hand in an up and down motion and he deepened the kiss. His hand slipped down my boxers and I moaned at his touch.     I slowed down my hand movement and removed his hand from my boxers. He parted his face from mine and gave me a worried look. He then kissed my forehead before returning to his side of the bed. He pulled the covers over me and then pull them beneath him. “I’m sorry.” my voice cracked. “Don’t apologize. I shouldn’t have…” he sighed. “I just… am not ready.” I pulled my shirt back on before pulling the blankets over my face. Since he didn’t reply, I assumed that all hope for a relationship- friends or more- was ruined. He probably thought poorly of me. I wasn’t ashamed, okay I was ashamed, but mostly scared that I blew every chance I had with him. I crawled into a ball and hoped that in the morning I would awake in my own bed and this night would be nothing but a strange dream.   “Please try and get some sleep. If it would make you feel better, I really don’t mind sleeping on the chair.” He spoke. I pulled him close to me and wrapped my arms around his bicep, “No. Please stay… If you don’t mind.” I begged. He pushed my hair out of my face and looked at me for a while. He gave me a comforting smile and a nod. His eyes felt so soft on mine and all fear had been washed away. I smiled into his arm and closed my eyes. I’m not sure if it was the amount of comfort I was feeling, or if I was just getting late, but my eyelids became very heavy and I was happy to finally feel tired. I wasn’t even scared or worried about tomorrow. Knowing I would be waking up next to Taka in the morning was the greatest feeling I have ever felt. I felt blessed to have met someone like him. I just hope he feels the same... *NOTE* Sorry the chapters are so short. Also, auntie, if you are following along with this story, I apologize in advance. Please continue loving me I hope I can entertain those that read what I write and I hope this story will become one you really like.

What Makes New Age Music Interesting? – Some Amazing Facts I bet you did not Know
Image via unsplash What sort of music do you listen to when you are meditating, practising yoga or lulling yourself to sleep? Here are a few interesting facts about New Age Music that may take you by surprise. After all, new-age music may not be as boring as you think it is. What is the hype about? Image via unsplash Harping on mindfulness and trancelike relaxation, new-age music replaces tacit or unexpressed vocals with acoustical instruments, electrical synthesizers ad sounds of nature. This genre of music is also considered as not embracing intricate harmonies and tempos like classical, pop or rock genres of music. Therefore, the chances of you being able to tilt your head and tap your feet to new-age music are next to zero. The salient feature of the new-age music Image via unsplash There are ample new-age music recordings that capture sounds of nature be it the sound of waves, birds, whales or rain. Since new-age music tends to be static with a few harmonic alterations, this type of music is also popular amidst meditation and yoga sessions. This genre of music can be composed with both acoustical instruments as well as synthesizers. While new-age artists like Lasos and George Winston are renowned for using acoustic instruments, those like Engima rose to fame with synthesizers. New age music vs. Ambient Music Image via wikimediacommons As suggested by some of the best music blogs, ambient music tends to focus more on creating an atmosphere, an image or a mood whereas new age is more inclined towards spirituality, optimism and tranquillity. Therefore, you would often consider new age music excellent background music during yoga or meditation. This type of music also has recurrent melodies that create a mesmerizing feeling as opposed to ambient music that envelopes the timbral characteristics of sounds. Listening to Yanni would enlighten you better on what new age music entails while Brian Eno would be a good pick for you to get a grip on ambient music. New Age vs. New wave- is it the same? Image via unsplash Except for the fact that new age music and new wave musical styles both rose to fame in the early to mid-1980s, the genres do not resonate any similar characteristics. New wave music is not a representation of the spiritual movement brought forth by the new age music and is more an offset of punk rock.
Why Don't Idol Groups Work In America?
In Japan and Korea, idols are a huge deal. The fandoms surrounding idols and idol groups are massive, with a ton of merch, lingo, events, etc surrounding the entertainers. So why isn't that happening in America? The UK tried it out with One Direction and we have a few girl groups like Fifth Harmony and Little Mix, but for the most part the classic pop group ensemble faded away in the early 2000s. Here are a few reasons why it might not work: I'm not saying either opinion is correct - just stating how the general public views celebrities in America vs Korea/Japan. I'm not an expert on either so please share your opinions as well! 1. The Concept of Being An Idol Sure, celebrities in the US know that they are role models, but do they really take this as their job?! In Japan and Korea, a single slip up can mean public humiliation (such as when an AKB48 member had a boyfriend - she had to shave her head as an apology) while in America celebrities insist on their personal rights to do whatever they want. In their opinion, just because you're a celebrity doesn't mean you aren't allowed a personal life. They should be able to be in the lime light but also have a lot of personal life that shouldn't be judged by the public, In Japan/Korea, every aspect of an entertainers life is analyzed and people know that is just part of the job. You must be a model citizen at all times and any bad behaviour (whether its on or off camera) is bad for your company, your career, and your fans. 2. Company Loyalty In America, we know the big companies like Warner, Sony, etc, but we rarely pay attention to what label each artist is on. And even if they're on the same label they don't really work together so its hard for fans to be loyal to one company. The closest I think we can get to that is waaay back with Motown Records or more recently the bands that came out on Fueled By Ramen. Smaller hip hop labels still keep this group style too! We could actually see the connection the artists had on those labels and could support the label as well as the artists. Now in Korea, we all know that companies are a big deal. YG Family, JYP, Cube, SM, etc. They do things together like concerts, Christmas songs, etc. We are able to anticipate the company's new project or collaboration. It's easier for the fans to get hyped over multiple groups at once. 3. Pre-Packaged In America, bands are usually put together by the band members. Whether they start in a garage or they put up flyers to find members, it is the band that forms first, then the label that signs them. In Korea and Japan however, we have a TON of trainees all hoping to be perfectly placed in a group. Think of the show Produce! Perfect example of prepackaging :) One Direction is an example of that happening where the boys were somewhat put together by a label, but musical and personality differences got in the way :/ 4. Training Idols train a LOT. Sure, in America entertainers practice, train, get vocal lessons, learn new instruments, get prepped for interviews etc but they are not forced to practice for 12 hours a day. Living in dorms without cell phones or internet, being forced to learn languages, dances, public speaking, etc - its totally normal in the idol world. Because of this, idols should be pretty prepared for anything. I'm not so sure American entertainers would be up for this style of training. Can you think of other reasons why the "idol" style of the music industry doesn't work in America?
