JUST A SONG

Just added a "music" element to this blog: an MP3 player at the bottom of the right pane. The song's actually the fourth (I guess) ending theme song on Detective Conan anime series (yeah, I'm still bounded by ityes). The melody for me is so lovely and expressive that even though without the English translation, I can still kind of "understand" its meaning; I can relate to it somehow. Well, anyway, here are the lyrics.

A SUMMER WITHOUT YOU
I'm tired of the hard mornings,
But I'm going to enjoy life
Even when I stumble.
Go and chase your distant dream --
I'll understand no matter how far apart we are.

That half-forgotten, sweet summer day...
How many days have passed since then?
The smiling face I loved,
Spending the days nearby for a while...
Ahh, I wish quietly for the days I can't ever return to.

To the kind person who is far away from me,
The gentle waves that lap against you
Will carry you away...
Because I lost all my memories,
And even my dreams that sparkled like that day.

That half-forgotten, sweet summer day...
One day, it'll return to our hearts.
I felt like I was growing up a little,
As we chose our own different paths...
Ahh, I wish quietly for the days I can't ever return to.

This summer without you remains too vivid...
Your voice, your quirks, they wrap around me.
It doesn't matter that you couldn't put it in words --
Your heart spread out, bathed in the sunrays...
Ahh, I wish quietly for the days I can't ever return to.

Ahh, I wish quietly for the days I can't ever return to.

Here are the original lyrics, if you want to sing along.music

KIMI GA INAI NATSU
Tsurai asa wa unzari suru ne
Tsumazuitemo tanoshiku
Ikite yuku yo
Kuri dasou oikakete haruka na yume o
Donna ni hanarete itemo wakaru

Wasure kaketeta amai natsu no hi o
Are kara dore kurai no toki ga tatsu no?
Daisuki datta ano egao dake wa
Shibaraku chikaku de kasane au hibi o
Ahh mou modorenai toki o chiisaku inotteiru

Ima tooi yasashii kimi o
Uchi yoseteru
Odayaka na nami ga sarau
Nani mokamo omoide o nakushita sei sa
Ano hi no youni kagayaku yume mo

Wasure kaketeta amai natsu no hi mo
Itsuka wa futari no mune ni yomigaeru
Sukoshi otona ni nareru ki ga shiteta,
Sorezore chigau michi o erabu koto de
Ahh mou modorenai toki o chiisaku inotteiru

Azayaka sugiru kimi ga inai natsu
Ano koe ano shigusa ga hirogatteku
Kotoba ni nanka dekinakute mo ii,
Koboreta hizashi ni kokoro ga nijinda
Ahh mou modorenai toki o chiisaku inotteiru

Ahh mou modorenai toki o chiisaku inotteiru

Hey also try the song 'Wasurezaki' by Garnet Glow. It's the 20th ending song of Detective Conan.
The melody is sweet.
