All right, this song is from the anime Saishuu Heiki Kanojo/She, the Ultimate Weapon/Saikano. My most favourite anime of all time, this song is the ending for this series. When I first heard it, I knew I was going to like it. With it's sad tone and heartfeeling lyrics, I was soon drawn to this song.

But who would've guessed that I'd come up with the first few verses in English during my exam? Lol! It took me a while to complete it though. I really wanted the lyrics to echo the same feelings as the Japanese one. Whether I've succedeed in this, I'm not sure. Feel free to comment on how it is and whether it's done well or needs improving.

Song: Sayonara
From: Saishuu Heiki Kanojo/She, the Ultimate Weapon/Saikano (ED song)

My broken heart is longing to
Be in your arms again
But on this sleepless night
I sit on my bed so lonely
And just as I could drift away
The dawn soon appears

I can hear your fading voice just calling out to me
And though I try I can't call you back
I can hear you whisper words that promises forever
Causing all my tears to flow

Sayonara, the person that I love
I promise to never ever forget all of my love for you
Sayonara, as simple as it seems
But I could never release all the pain I've had losing you

Whenever I was feeling down
You'd be there by my side
Taking my hand in yours
Encouraging me to believe
Whenever I can't carry on
You surround me with your love

I just want to go back to the times that we first met
But no matter, no matter how I try
All those happy times you bring now hurt me till I bleed
Don't leave me alone

Sayonara, the person that I love
I promise that I will never forget all of my love for you
Sayonara, as simple as it seems
But if I were to break and disappear, would you still be with me?

Sayonara, the person that I love
I promise to never ever forget all of my love for you
Sayonara, as simple as it seems
But I could never release all the pain I've had losing you
