Style: Rock Ballad
English Lyrics: Adam Pulver
I have a confession to make. I'm not a big InuYasha fan. For some reason, it never really appealed to me. That, and the thought of staying loyal through 100+ episodes sounds a tad daunting. But regardless of how I feel about the series, there's one thing everybody agrees on- this song is awesome!!

It's one of the first anime songs I got my grubby mitts on, and strangely enough one of the last ones I wrote lyrics before when getting the site ready. I think it was an almost an obligation- there has to be an English version of this.

Of course, I recently found out that there is an English version of the song, performed by the original group, V6. But after reading the lyrics... I like mine better.

Change the World

I want to change the world. Nothing left that can scare me now.
I know I'll get through it somehow.
If I can hold my own, my bravery will lead me home.
Or change my mind- reaching out with no passion gone.
Hoping that a new day will dawn.
It will be yours and mine, and we will live to see it shine.
It's wonderland.

Within your eyes I see that something is lost.
Something missing, something astray.
So today, you keep on searching.
You, are moving farther away.

Sometimes I have no energy to exhaust.
When tomorrow never is near.
I can't hear, I can't believe.
I feel my spirit decay.

But then I saw your face and I found,
In your embrace, my strength is always around.
It is the place in life that I need,
And the more I concede,
The more you feel completed.

I want to change the world. No more reason to hesitate.
Now tomorrow won't have to wait.
If I can share with you, a future brilliant, a love so true.
I'd change my mind, spreading wings with no passion gone.
New roads won't be secret for long.
They will be yours and mine, and we live to see them shine.
It's wonderland.

When time and times are just repeating again.
And when life seems awfully routine.
And it seems, we're running circles.
Never reaching our dreams.

But then I see your face and I know,
That you and me, will find the right way to go.
And when I need to stop and rewind,
I know I'll always find
That you're still right behind me.

I want to change the world. Can it be we see eye-to-eye?
Living life without asking why.
'Cause we already know, since I'm not able to let you go.
Won't change my mind, never letting us be apart.
Everything you need's in my heart.
And it is yours and mine, and hand-in-hand we'll watch it shine.
It's wonderland.

I want to change the world. Nothing's left that can scare me now.
I know I'll get through it somehow.
If I can hold my own, my bravery will lead me home.
Or change my mind, reaching out with no passion gone.
Hoping that a new day will dawn.
It will be yours and mine, and we will live to see it shine.
It's wonderland.
