Welcome to Puffy AmiYumi World - A J-Pop World Featured Artist Site
Otomemoriaru
The previously unreleased song from the "fan's choice" greatest hits CD Hit and Fun. The song was used in the promotional campaign for Lavshuca for Kanebo Cosmetics and was written by the Merrymaker's writing duo Anders Hellgren and David Myhr.

In an interview with Andrew (your webmaster) David said: "Otomemoriaru was a melody that had been lying around on my little micro cassette recorder since many years that I thought might be worth demoing. Anders heard it and reworked the chorus a little bit in the last minute and it turned out really well."

Translation Note: I've yet to find an official translation for the tile. The name "Otomemoriaru" is a unique word that appears to combine the Japanese words for "girl" (otome) and "memorial." It could be translated as "Girl Memorial" or "Memories of a Girl."

    Japanese Lyrics

    Harukare kaoru machi de hitoribocchi
    Atarashii koto bakkari de tomado tte
    Koko kara hajimatte iku mainichi ni
    Kinou made no watashi to te wo totte ajirou

    Kazararani kotoba to
    Kararitai watashi ga ita
    Wasurenai you ni docchi mo kitto daiji nan darou
    Tanoshitai raku janai
    Yume mo sonna mo n janai
    Kimi ga tonari ni ireba naisu

    Yuugure ressha tobinotta taiyou wa
    Machi no iro mo kokoro mo somete iku
    Samashii toki itsudatte kimi omotte
    Ima wa koko de yarushika nai yo na
    Ki ga suru mitete ne

    Kawaranai kiremeki wo
    Tomaranai kono ko yo
    Wasurenai de to iiatta hi mo tashika attarou
    Tsutaetai miraretai
    Yawarakai kamo shinai
    Amaku tsuyameku kimochi jueru

    Tsukareta heya ni nekoronde
    Buruu na namida afurechatte
    Datte datte kayowai joshi damon
    Imasugu koorumii kissumii

    Togirenai hibi nanda
    Hatasenai yakusoku wo
    Nido to nai jikan wo hakari ni kakete n darou
    Kudaranai mono nanka nani mo nai kamoshin nai
    Mada minai sekai no rain ni tatte nankanai

    Itsumo mattetai aitai
    Kimi wo mattetai aitai
    Koe ga todokeru mono wa riaru
