NONA REEVES – Sweet Survivor

Though I enjoy the music of NONA REEVES (including “Love Together” and their cover of “Doyoubi no Koibito”, of course,) this is the first time I’ve been very hooked on a particular song of theirs.

As I type this, their album 「MISSION」has not been released yet, but two singles from the release, “Sweet Survivor” and “O-V-E-R-H-E-A-T” are available for digital download on the Japanese iTunes store. As I said on a comment in the short version of the PV, if “Sweet Survivor” is an indication of the sound and quality of the rest of the album, this may become my favourite NONA REEVES release.

As usual, lyrics follow under the cut! There may be more errors than usual because I have no other sources to verify my transcription. I would appreciate any corrections.

EDIT: Linked to the full version of the MV + made a few corrections for the lyrics.

旅ゆけば 七色のNeon Lights
疲労と困憊で見つめた
東京の街 沈みゆくタイタニック
何もかも藪の中

人生はHeavyなことばかりじゃないが
手に負えない虚しさも
どうしょうもないほど惨めな夜は
君だけが僕の支えさ
お祭り騒ぎも 愛しくて…

Sweet Survivor 僕らは生きた時代の合間
心重ねたMidnight Fever
失った愛の分も 光を集めて踊りな

呆然と泣いて別れた人も
いつの日にかまた会える
些細な笑えた想い出を抱いてく
人生を君と混ぜれば
どんな未来 出会っても楽しめる…

Sweet Survivor 僕らは生きた時代の合間
心重ねたMidnight fever
それぞれの痛みを今宵は忘れ 踊れよ皆!

Everybody, move your body tonight
Everybody, share the love tonight

嘘みたいなfantasy 泳げ…

Everybody, move your body tonight
Everybody, share the love tonight

Sweet Survivor 例えば僕が君より
先に死んでも Feel like a father
幸せなportrait 見守るさずっと

Sweet Survivor 僕らは生きた時代の合間
心重ねたMidnight Fever
失った愛の分も 光を集めて踊りな

Sweet Survivor
(今宵) Midnight Fever

Everybody, move your body tonight
Sweet Survivor
Everybody, share the love tonight
(今宵) Midnight Fever
