Finally able to put it up on this blog! I actually finished this quite a while ago but eheh... took my time to put it up. Sorry about that!

After uploading this on YouTube I found out that there has already been an official English version of the song out by FUNimation. I didn't realize that they have one already! And they change the chorus slightly which is quite cool... but I'm keeping my version regardless, cause truth be told I loved writing this. The song has such a beautiful meaning behind each word and I tried my best to capture it all in English. I hope I managed to do that!

Requested by ryu souichirou. I really hope you like it! And I must say I really enjoyed doing this request. ^^

: For Fruits Basket
Original Artist: Ritsuko Okazaki
Anime: Fruits Basket

It really did brighten up my heart, to hear your laughter fill the air
With a sweet smile that seems to melt everything

Though spring is still too far away, but I know beneath the cold and dark earth
Beautiful things are waiting to sprout out

So even if today seems to bear too much pain
And the wounds of yesterday never did go away
I do believe that my heart will be free to carry on

I may never be able to be reborn
But I can always change as I go along so
Let's stay together forever

When you give your smile just for me and touch me with gentle fingers
That simple gesture seems to be everlasting

Sometimes I wish that life could be as simple as we can make it
But I'm sure we can overcome our sorrows together

So even if today seems to bear too much pain
I know someday it will be a memory
Just let your heart lead you towards a better tomorrow

I finally understand my reason to live
And to find joy in the reason why I have been born
Let's stay together forever

So even if today seems to bear too much pain
I know someday it will be a memory
Just let your heart lead you towards a better tomorrow

I finally understand my reason to live
And to find joy in the reason why I have been born
Let's stay together forever

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! ^^
