Only Human

Only Human

Kanashimi no mukou kishi ni
Hohoemi ga aru toiu yo

Kanashimi no mukou kishi ni
Hohoemi ga aru to iu yo
Tadori tsuku sono saki ni wa
Nani ga bokura wo matteru?

Nigeru tame ja naku yume ou tame ni
Tabi ni deta hazusa tooi natsu no ano hi

Ashita sae mieta nara tame iki mo nai kedo
Nagare ni sakarau fune no you ni
Ima wa mae he susume

Kurushimi no tsukita basho ni
Shiawase ga matsu toiu yo
Boku wa mada sagashite iru
Kisetsu hazure no himawari

Kobushi nigirishime asahi wo mateba
Akai tsume ato ni namida kirari ochiru

Kodoku ni mo nareta nara
Tsuki akari tayori ni
Hane naki tsubasa de tobi tatou
Motto mae he susume

Amagumo ga kireta nara
Nureta michi kagayaku
Yami dake ga oshiete kureru
Tsuyoi tsuyoi hikari
Tsuyoku mae he susume


English translated:

Only Human

On the opposite coast of sadness
is something called a smile

On the opposite coast of sadness
is something called a smile

But before we can go there,
is there something we’re waiting for?

In order to chase our dreams, we can’t have a reason to run away
We’ve got to go, to that far away summer’s day

If we find it tomorrow, we can’t sigh
Because like a boat that opposes the stream
we have to walk straight on

In a place worn down by sadness
something called a miracle, is waiting
Yet we are still searching
for the sunflower that grows at the end of spring

The warrior who awaits the morning light
before he can clasp it with red nails, his tears glitter and fall

Even if we’ve grown used to loneliness
only relying on the light of the moon
We have to fly away with featherless wing
just go forward, just a little further

As the rainclouds break
the wet streets sparkling
Although it brings only darkness
A powerful, powerful light
helps push us to walk on


This is a theme song of a Japanese film 1 litre of tears. This film is really touching and it makes me cry a lot without pauses from its second chapter to the last one T_T It is based on a true story of a 15-year-old girl who had to fight against a strange fatal disease called "Spinocerebellar ataxia" which caused her to lose control over her body although she still have her mental ability T_T Which I admire her so much is that she always smiled and tried her best to keep on living and fighting against her fate although sometimes she did wanna give up bcuz of the cold hearts of strangers who cruelly laughed at her disease. However, her Life could not have the Happy-ending ...

This film has made a lot of people all over the world cry even more than " 1 litre of tears " because it can let us see the Love, the Bravery, the Mercy, and also the Hope of Humans even in the hopeless condition. Until now, every time i think of that little brave girl, I still cannot understand how she could be strong like that. If the one in that situation were me, I dared not say that i could be great like her ...

The melody is so sad, and the lyrics are really touching ... Hope you like it :)
