  • Comments: This is a Chichiri profile video, featuring him, Tasuki, and Tamahome. You will see little to no Miaka in this video, but the other seishi get screentime. In the series, I think Chichiri was closest to Mitsukake, and Tasuki to Nuriko, so those two get more focus than Hotohori or Chiriko.

    The idea for this - as if the song wasn't clearly made for Chichiri's past with Hikou - is 'left behind'. Forsaken = abandoned. I imagine it as a sort of supplication, a prayer (hence the beginning), and I think it fits what Chichiri says to Tasuki, that no one is really complete, so humans can't survive alone.

    SPOILERS - lots of them. Don't like it? Don't watch.

    The song: I've seen one vid for this song a few years ago, a Rurouni Kenshin video that looked at Sano and Kenshin. That's the only video I've watched for this song, so I don't know or care if it's been used before.

    Lyrics:

    Rain, rain on my face
    It hasn稚 stopped raining for days
    My world is a flood
    Slowly I become one with the mud

    But if I can稚 swim after forty days
    And my mind is crushed by the thrashing waves
    Lift me up so high that I cannot fall
    Lift me up
    Lift me up - when I知 falling
    Lift me up - I知 weak and I知 dying
    Lift me up - I need you to hold me
    Lift me up - keep me from drowning again

    Downpour on my soul
    Splashing in the ocean, I知 losing control
    Dark sky all around
    I can稚 feel my feet touching the ground

    But if I can稚 swim after forty days
    And my mind is crushed by the thrashing waves
    Lift me up so high that I cannot fall
    Lift me up
    Lift me up - when I知 falling
    Lift me up - I知 weak and I知 dying
    Lift me up - I need you to hold me
    Lift me up - keep me from drowning again

    Calm the storms that drench my eyes
    Dry the streams still flowing
    Cast down all the waves of sin
    And guilt that overthrow me

    But if I can稚 swim after forty days
    And my mind is crushed by the thrashing waves
    Lift me up so high that I cannot fall
    Lift me up
    Lift me up - when I知 falling
    Lift me up - I知 weak and I知 dying
    Lift me up - I need you to hold me
    Lift me up - keep me from drowning again

    Lift me up - when I知 falling
    Lift me up - I知 weak and I知 dying
    Lift me up - I need you to hold me
    Lift me up - keep me from drowning again
