"Death Note" (デスノート) is a song in Death Note: The Musical. The original English version of the song is titled "Hurricane," but the lyrics were completely rewritten in the translation and the entire hurricane metaphor was removed.

An early rehearsal of the song, performed by Kenji Urai and Hayato Kakizawa, was used in a video announcing the first production of the Japanese musical.

OverviewEdit

When Light Yagami first picks up the Death Note, he thinks it's a joke and kills a criminal he sees on television, Kurou Otoharada. Horrified, he sings this song and resolves to use the Death Note for justice. The song involves a montage of names being written, and time moves forward enough for Soichiro Yagami to learn of the criminals' deaths and begin the investigation.

The song is briefly reprised later in Act 1 when Light sings a few lines when he kills the FBI agents. It's briefly reprised again at the end of Act 2 when Light sings a few lines before dying.

Japanese lyricsEdit

Japanese Romaji
これは夢か 現実なら

僕はもう人殺しだ

そんな馬鹿な 耐えられない
こんなもの捨てるべきか

でも腐った犯罪者は
死んだほうがマシだ

不思議だ 世界が
輝いて見える
だれもがあふれる笑顔

このノートは世界を
救う力を持つのか

本当なのか このノートは
社会のゴミを消せるのか

間違いなく 殺せるなら
変えられる この世界を

悲鳴上げる 精神力
だけど負けるものか

犠牲は覚悟だ
輝く世界を
この手で守るためなら

痛みも越えよう
出来るのは僕一人だ

正義はこの手に委ねられた
世界を創り変えよう

待ち望んできた
自分のすべてを
ぶつける価値があるもの

心の正しき人々のために
すべての悪を裁こう

やり抜こう 僕こそ
新世界の神だから

English versionEdit

The English title of the song is "Hurricane." Jeremy Jordan apparently recorded the demo track in December 2014, but an official recording has not been released.

The song was included in the Frank Wildhorn and Friends concert. Adam Pascal performed the song for the concert in Japan in 2015, and Jeremy Jordan performed in New York in April 2016.

The two concert versions have slightly different lyrics, noted below.

Hurricane lyricsEdit

[LIGHT]
Did I hear correctly?
Did it really happen?
Was it simply done by writing down his name?

Killing indirectly
Pen and ink and paper
Writing is the gun, I only have to aim

Could this be the hour
Unimagined power
Waiting to devour who I say?

The hardest rains
The coldest winds
Are waiting for the hurricane

The human stains
And all their sins
Blown away

The earth will shake
The sky will scream
(Pascal version:) When they feel the power of the hurricane
(Jordan version:) Once they feel the power of the hurricane

Finally a chance to
(Pascal version:) Find a bit of justice
(Jordan version:) Find a little justice
There's nowhere to run to once the name is penned

Take what fortune grants you
Use it while you've got it
Once you have begun you write it 'til the end

Elegant solution
(Pascal version:) Pious execution
(Jordan version:) Flawless execution
Righteous retribution on the way

I'll bring the rain
I'll bring the wind
I am the mighty hurricane

The human stains
And all their sins
Blown away

I'll bring the pain
So be afraid
I will bring the power of the hurricane

I am the God of a brave new world
Much better than the last

The time for talking is finally in the past

The hardest rains
The coldest winds
Are waiting for the hurricane

The human stains
And all their sins
Blown away

The hardest rains
The coldest winds
Are waiting for the hurricane

The human stains
And all their sins
Blown away

(Pascal's ending verse:)
I'll take the reins
So be afraid
I will bring the power of the hurricane

(Jordan's ending verse:)
The earth will shake
The sky will scream
Once they feel the power of the hurricane
