MIKUEXPO5th Lyrics


These three songs were each entered into the Hatsune Miku Expo 5th Anniversary contest. Each song was created by a different producer, and the styles vary from each other.
For each song, I was requested separately by each producer to write lyrics for their songs.

Pop Pop Parade

Music: S. Sneaky Rat
Lyrics + Illustration: ラゼル (RazzyRu)

For Pop Pop Parade, I was asked to create the lyrics as well as the illustration used for Soundcloud. S. Sneaky Rat and I discussed having inspiring and uplifting lyrics. A “parade” theme came to mind, where Miku hopes to spread happiness wherever she goes.

Pop Pop Parade Lyrics:
The world’s spinning around, dreaming of a booming sound
Beyond the stage, this voice will reach past
Leaving you in wonder

A digital parade pops in to view of the fray
Walk behind me, as I lead our path
Singing “Na na na na!”

The shimmering lights show the night
I’m wondering when we’ll meet up like this again
There’s no place I’d rather face

The crowd begins cheering more than ever
Will you come along and smile with the song
Even if the storms come we walk out into the rain
Keep marching, parade!

The banners that we raise up will glimmer
We shall carry our voice until they hear
Step by step, the night becomes a field of shining rays
Give me a hooray!

Do you see the bright stars? Maybe my wish seems bizarre
But I dream to be just like one of them
Something to discover

From a virtual world, we travel until we’re heard
If you’re with me, we’ll go anywhere then
Singing “Na na na na!”

The shimmering lights in my eyes
I’m ready to march, will this journey take me far?
We march on with our wand

My popping parade will need a leader
Will you join us in the glorious music
Even if we all smile, I’ll march on everyday
Surprising parade!

Those moments we shared are remembered
We shall pass the time by standing hand in hand
Step by step, the sad days have left us without a trace
One last big hooray!

Miku Mayhem

Music: Marvin Valentin
Lyrics: RazzyRu
Tuning: Aku-P
Guitar Solo: Austin Peters
Bass Guitar: Tikaal
Drums: Mark Pacpaco
Video & Storyboard: CATTS
Art: Various Illustrators

Miku Mayhem was an idea that started a few months before the contest was announced. Marvin and I brainstormed ideas to use for a future contest before settling down on the main theme of Miku Mayhem. Our theme was also light-hearted, where Miku hopes to spread cheer even if it looks like chaos to some people.

On August 31, 2020, an official music video released. The video features many illustrators who created various drawings for the video.

Miku Mayhem Lyrics:
That’s right!

When you found me alone that day,
Nothing would be the same
Why don’t l just show you how to smile all of your troubles away?

It’s time! Time to take the spotlight
Look at this crazy sight
Don’t be still! Move around, dance about to my shout
So, what will it be?

Nothing I do will be ordinary
Together we stand out from the cast of wannabes

Q: Doesn’t this sound crazy?
A: Maybe! Listen close to the melody!

Engage with the stage of faces beyond me
Make the world wanna see

Q: Are you gonna watch me?

Let the music of my mayhem match the sound of your heartbeat
Quiet the background stress! All those troubles you’ll soon forget
My light will shine brighter

In this wondrous mayhem, I want you up and out of your seat!
See those people offset? They won’t join us yet, and for that, I
I’ll sing a little louder

Don’t say “It’s time to take a break!”
Keep dancing for my sake
The music has yet to slow down, so come on! To dance, we’ll stay awake!

It’s time! Why don’t you take a turn?
Show the world what you’ve learned!
Sing again! Raise a voice, there’s no choice, just rejoice!
So, give me a beat

What this chaotic world needs is a song
To lift them up and show them where they can come belong

Q: Hasn’t this been done?
A: Come on! Does it matter? The mayhem goes on and on

Just show where to go and I’ll be the one
To show my heart to someone

Q: You wanna come along?

Let the music of my mayhem match the sound of your heartbeat
Quiet the background stress! All those troubles you’ll soon forget
My light will shine brighter

In this wondrous mayhem, I want you up and out of your seat!
See those people offset? They won’t join us yet, and for that, I
I’ll sing a little louder

Let’s start the mayhem!
Stand up! It’s not over yet
Won’t they join us? Let’s go after them!

Let’s start the mayhem!
Get up! And don’t forget
The moments around the world will never end

Let’s start the mayhem!
Come up! There’s no need to fret
You gotta do more than just listen

My story, your journey, finally
I don’t want to wait, I’m gonna bring the mayhem!

Let the music of my mayhem match the sound of your heartbeat
Quiet the background stress! All those troubles you’ll soon forget
My light will shine brighter

In this wondrous mayhem, I want you up and out of your seat!
See those people offset? They won’t join us yet, I wonder why
Now is my time
And for that, I
I’ll sing a little louder

Maybe

The song “Maybe” is a song that relate to the future of Miku. Her future is uncertain, and Miku wonders what it will truly be like. It’s a song I hoped to write not just for Miku’s future, but for the future of her fans as well. I imagine her fans hope she will have a bright future, and I imagine she wants the same for her fans.

Maybe Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
Maybe now is when we find the truth
(When we find it with you)
Maybe we will learn if the future is meant to be
(Meant to be)

Maybe now
Maybe now we can not change the past
(We can’t change it at last)
Maybe that does not matter to us anymore
(Anymore)

[PreChorus]
It’s for another day I wait
I sing my songs and pray
That I’ll chase a bright future

I know my head may be down, but now
We hear a rising sound
I’m about to return

[Chorus]
Maybe the future will be just like tonight
The world goes around and yet it’s alright
Maybe even if we could not change a thing
You will still hold on tightly to my hand

Maybe the future will be shining bright
Wanna make a world where it’s all alright
Maybe you won’t be there right next to me
I will still hold on to the memories again

[Verse 2]
All those silly moments and the quiet times when we met
Writing songs and touching stories
Can’t forget

And I would smile at you
I would cry with you
I will never leave you
No, not yet

[PreChorus]
Do you know of the day I faced
A thousand songs to trace?
Please erase the times I failed

I don’t want to let you down somehow
Listen close to my sound
Turn around, I’ll prevail

[Chorus]
Maybe the future will be just like tonight
Our lives go around, somehow that’s alright
If the world around us doesn’t change a thing
You will still hold on tightly to my hand

Maybe the future will be shining bright
Wanna hope that somehow that it’s alright
If that day comes you won’t be next to me
I wish I knew if I could still see you again

[Bridge]
Flashbacks play inside my mind
Trying too hard to define
Who I was

The best moments start at zero
Maybe we can just breathe slow
Taking a moment to pause

Flashbacks play inside my mind
But this time I will define
Who I am

You’ve been with me since that zero
Maybe

[Chorus]
Maybe the future will be just like tonight
The world goes around and yet it’s alright (Maybe the future)
Maybe even if something changed everything (will be just like tonight)
I would still hold on tightly to your hand

Maybe the future will be shining bright
Wanna see a world where you’re all alright
Maybe I won’t be there right next to you
You will still hold on to the memories again

[Post-Chorus]
Memories inside my mind won’t fade
Memories inside my mind won’t fade
Maybe
