Japanese Lyrics

Hitori yori totemo yoku warai
Hito no hanbun yoku nemeri
Tama ni fuan wo kaketemo
Ki ga tsukya itsumo wasureteru
Ii koto bakari dewa nai ga
Suteta mono dewa gozaimasen
Daichi no ibuki kanjite wa kokoro odoru deshou

Iki wo kirashite hashittemo
Kumo wa doko e mo tsuite kuru
Toki nijimu yuugure ni omoi o hasete

Rumba, rumba

Hito yori chotto ganbatte
Hito ni kakurete naite iru
Muzukashiku kangaedasu to
Tokidoki nigedashitaku naru
Kokoro no naka ni chiraborari
Merankorii ja gozaimasen
Koharubiyori ni nekoronde wasurechaimashou

Ano natsu no koiji no you ni shinkirou wa nigete yuku
Wakasa yue ni katakuna na omoi o nosete
Iki o kirashite hashittemo kumo wa doko e mo tsuite kuru
Toki nijimu yuugure ni omoi o hasete

Ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra
Ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra
Toki nijimu yuugure ni omoi o hasete
English Translation

I laugh more than most people
Sleep better than half
Sometimes I feel a little insecure
But next thing I know it's forgotten
I don't always have good times
But it's never that bad
The rhythm of the earth
Makes my heart want to dance
Run till you run out of breath
But the clouds will follow you there
Sometimes colors of sunset peek through
And bring back memories of long ago
I try harder than most people
I hide my tears when I cry
When I think too much about things
Sometimes I just want to run away
In my heart are memories here and there
But I'm not melancholy
This Indian summer let's fall asleep
And forget about everything
Like a summer romance
The mirage will disappear
But because I'm young
I stubbornly hold on to the memories

La la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
Sometimes colors of sunset peek through
And bring back memories of long ago
