Now I know that many of you do not like School Days all that much, but I have to say that I wrote a song about it. I just got so many mixed feelings from watching it that I had to write something. My brother Ricky is singing in it with me, so you'll hear some multiple vocals goin on. This is the 3rd full band song I've ever arranged, so I've had a little bit of experience in composing with various instruments. Hope ya like it!
Below is an explanation of the lyrics and the lyrics themselves
WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS!
I gotta admit that I didn't put TOO much thought into the lyrics. But I did put in some effort. Most of the time I just put down what came off the top of my head. So basically, the first verse represents the Makoto's journey from dating one girl and then selfishly moving on to others. The chorus is dedicated to Katsura because I had sooooo much sympathy for her while watching the series. The second verse skips to towards the end when he goes back to Katsura and pretty much rejects Sekai. In the "breakdown" the lyrics are sung in the perspective of Sekai and it basically describes how she feels in the moments before his downfall. Then the solo comes in and that actually represents Makoto getting pwned by Sekai. The last chorus ends with the refrain that is dedicated to Katsura, the No Regrets reprise with is in the perspective of Makoto, and the other No Regrets reprise(Goodbye) which is in the perspective of Sekai.
P: He's just a child who'd always feel through his hands. He's just a boy who'd never understand.
R: That time is a part of learning her heart.
P: So he severs all the ties with the ones that he makes, cause he can't wait.
R: And he walks down this road unaware of what might unfold. He disregards the feelings he's shown leaving her all alone.
And the poor girl she waits for the one in her heart. But how much can she take before she falls apart? Having faith in her dear, she holds back all the tears on her own and hopes for brighter days.
P: And he starts to realize that she is something that they're not. Without hesitation he throws away all he's got. Speakin like this
R: She is the one who keeps her faith and embraces all he's got. It's all over. I just told her I'd be there for her don't stand in my way.
P: And on he walks upon these selfish days
R: And she sends angered words to his phone
P: Her loss on what he decides
R: Saying that they must meet alone
P: But she still holds on to what's inside
R: So he goes to face his world. Once again he leaves this lonely girl.
R: And I gave everything that I could give. Gave him myself till I was his. I gave my all. And I can't understand why he takes. Can't understand the bonds he breaks, but I'll break it all
P: I'm denying and crying because he betrayed me. I've had it. I'm so sick. I have got to do something about this. He hates me and my baby. I can't see. I'm going crazy. I'm sorry. Goodbye.
R: I said I have no regrets and that is the truth cause my life was fulfilled just by loving you. I must thank you for all you've done. You've been my only one and I'm grateful to you for being my light.
P: I swear that I love you. I do. So Goodbye

First of all-don't worry, it's good to get inspiration from animes... It's good to get inspiration from almost anything. Anyway I just finished watching it and I like it. Your song? Very good. While reading it it really reminded me of the story.
It's worth noting I also write songs myself...
I'll get a sig... Someday...
