Hey hey! Sorry for the lack of activity here. Life has seriously taken the best of me. I'm still translating songs so don't worry! Just bear with me... I can be really slow as I really do take my time when it comes to some songs.

Anyway, I've written this one a loooong time ago, before I began this blog but didn't post it up because I couldn't find the mp3 for this song. I only had the video version, which was what I referred to to making this. I love this song, it's by Utada Hikaru called "Dareka no negai ga kanau koro" or "When someone's wish comes true". I wrote the English version of it mostly to fit my mood at that time, in which I was definitely going through a hard time... and the song stuck in my head and an English version came into my head.

Recently, I found not only the mp3, but also the instrumental version thus I was more than ecstatic to get myself to sing this song and share it with everyone.

I hope you like it as I really did put all my emotions into it. C&C welcome.

Song: When someone wishes
Original title: Dareka no negai ga kanau koro
Original singer: Utada Hikaru

I used to lose so much of my life because I let small things get to me
The ring of pain on my finger brightly gleamed at me, remember
I know I said that I'll be ok as long as I had today but I was wrong
You head towards the door and all I can do at this moment, disappear...

When I'd one wish, I wished for only your happiness, but I turned out as selfish as before
But it didn't stop me from believing in my story and it never will
When someone wishes and it finally does come true, there's someone else crying in the dark
But even so, walk out that door and silently forget me

I just wanted to be everything to everyone and still be the only one you love
Quietly beared all the pain, it turned out just too much for me

If I'd one wish and I wished for my own happiness, would I still be as selfish as before?
Even so I want to have my arms wrapped all around you, and hold you ever tightly
When someone cries and finally all their tears have dried, there's someone else crying in the dark
Still we all know that in this world the tears will stain the ground forever

When I'd one wish, I wished for only your happiness, but I turned out as selfish as before
But it didn't stop me from believing in my story, and it never will
When someone wishes and it finally does come true, there's someone else crying in the dark
This only proves that it's impossible to have all wishes come true

The world continues and as time slowly passes by
It shapes me to be kinder than before
Even so, I want to have my arms wrapped all around you and hold you ever softly...
