Got a lot to learn about Blogger... there's still a lot of things I need to fix on this blog. So please bear with it at the moment. Need suggestions on how to fix this place is welcome...

Ok, putting another song up. This one is the ever famous Tooi Kono Machi De from the first Cardcaptor Sakura The Movie. I really love this song and it always made me think of how I should live my life.

The english version came to me easily... but there was one paragraph that I struggled, which is the verse before the last two chorus (Though in the past I have been crushed so many times...). It kinda strays from the original, but I wanted to make that verse as meaningful as possible. So the result is as seen.

Please let me know what you think... Feels like it needs improving.

EDITED: I've actually changed the lyrics here and there, so please look out for it. Plus I decided to add my voice clip in here to get you a better picture. This is just tentative since, I beleieve, this song can be widely improved (plus my singing). Suggestions and such are much appreciated.

Song: Tooi Kono Machi De
From: Cardcaptor Sakura The Movie

Oh, how I just love that song I hear
That's playing on my old radio
A little bit scratched though blurred it still makes me think of it
The dusky dawn of the day

And so today repeats itself
Followed by the warm summer breeze
In the midst of my day-by-day routine just like always, oh,
I suddenly felt alone

I will never forget when I rode my bike
I knew then I could soar and knew I could ride the wind

La la la la Sing this song with your face towards the sky
La la la la It's my life, I'll continue to walk on
Using the power that is deep within me, I will go forward down this winding road

Even in my own life I have to choose
And sometimes I don't know what to do
But even though I may fall or may go astray, I know
That I am living my life

I will never forget all the people I know
All their love and affection even though I may grow old

La la la la Sing this song with your face towards the sky
La la la la It's my life, I'll continue to walk on
I know it's something I must do on my own, and so I need to have faith in me

Though in the past I have been crushed so many times
And though it still hurts sometimes, I truly believe
That somehow I could be the best, just use these legs that I have
And take these life changing steps no matter how small...

La la la la Sing this song with your face towards the sky
La la la la It's my life, I'll continue to walk on
La la la la Sing this song with your face towards the sky
La la la la It's my life, I'll continue to walk on
Using the power that is deep within me, I will go forward down this winding road

Again, I'll try to find a site that plays the original song. If you want to hear how this song is to be sung and wouldn't mind hearing it through my horrible voice, e-mail me and I'll send it to you or, if most of you prefer, I'll put it up on yousendit.

I've put up the clip using megaupload. Check it out. Link: Tooi Kono Machi De

Take care and God bless.

Sing it with me! 8:47 AM



Hi, I'm Cherry tiger! I love music and I love anime, mix them together and here's what you get!

Here's where I put up all my songs that I've translated from Japanese songs into English so that you can sing them as well. If you'd like to me translate a song for you, please contact me here.

Do remember that I cannot fulfill everyone's request and that I do take my time when translating each song cause I am now working and my time is very limited.

In the meantime, enjoy! ^^
