Aishiteta to nageku ni wa
Amari ni mo toki wa sugi te shimatta
Mada kokoro no hokorobi o
Iyasenumama kaze ga fuiteru

Hitotsu no me de asu o mite
Hitotsu no me de kinou mitsumeteru
Kimi no ai no yurikagode
Mo ichido yasurakani nemuretara

Kawaita hitomi de dareka na itekure

~The real folk blues
Honto no kanashimi ga shiritaidake
Doro no kawa ni sukatta jinsei mo warukuwanai
Ichido kiri de owarunara

Kibou ni michita zetsuboto
Wanagashikakerareteru kono chansu
Nani ga yoku te warui no ka
Koin no omoi to kuramitaita

Dore dake ikireba iyasareru no darou

~The real folk blues
Honto no yorokobi ga shiritai dake
Hikaru mono no subete ga ougen to wa kagiranai

* repeat

    General CommentThis song is great although i can't understand a lick of japaneese but i kinda got the gist of it somehow even before seeing the translation. I always listen to it when the shows over it's just a kick ass song

    General CommentYou really have to love this song, there's nothing like it.

    Plus, i've yet to find a song from Yoko Kanno that I don't like.
    (Plus it's fun to watch some of my friends try and sing it!)

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song with a tinge of melancholy. Love the vocals. Cowboy Bebop kicks ass!
