Re: SGYY Songs - Make your own!

You know, all my previous songs were rather well-known, so I thought I'd go with something more niche. Yes, I realize that's a cover, but since the original is in Japanese I thought I'd go with a translated version.

It just occurred to me
That I've been through this place again and again,
And in the same spot every time I repeatedly lose.
I never will give up
As I attempt to take the Wuzhang Plains near Changan,
But again I'm pushed off of them.

If I only had the City of Changan
It would make it so much easier to reach Luoyang but
Every time, somehow, every time, somehow,
Every time I lose.

I can't defeat Sima Yi!
No matter how I try to dodge all his plans, he just beats me again.
And even though I can get behind him
It's no use. I try to fight, but I get blown away in the end.
I march as fast as I can,
But when I had to go against Sima Yi's force I was helpless again.
I'll try again, of course, but this is my plan:
I'll keep Wei Yan saved in reserve just as long as I can!

It just occurred to me
That my food stock's almost empty again.
If I don't go and withdraw now I'll never survive.
I never will give up,
But it's so difficult to navigate this land and
Now I see that I'm playing with my final life.

If I only had Chencang Fort I'd be fine.
It would make it so much easier to fight Sima Yi but
Every time, somehow, every time, somehow,
Every time I lose.

I can't defeat Hao Zhao!
No matter how I try to break his stone defense, he always stops me again.
And even though I can get behind him
It's no use. I try to get close but he keeps pushing me back.
I charge as fierce as I can,
But when I had to go against Hao Zhao's tricks, I'm helpless again.
I'll try again, of course, but this is my plan:
I'll keep Wei Yan saved in reserve just as long as I can!

Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.

Shall it not be in the artistic part of the Peach Tree Garden?
