Crazy

Just before bedtime

nagai aida, matasete gomenn
mata kyuu ni shogoto ga haitta
itsumo isshoni irarenakute
sabishi omoi wo saseta ne.
aenaitoki juwakikara kikoeru
kimi no koe ga kasutereru
hisashiburi ni atta toki no
kimi no egao ga menu wo saretee iku
--- can't remember anymore ---

I sudden recalled, that approximately ten years ago, I took a bus from Ghim Moh to Upper East Coast road to keep a sick man company.
The persistence of memory.

--- found the lyrics anyway ---

長い間待たせてごめん
また急に仕事が入った
いつも一緒にいられなくて
淋しい思いをさせたね

逢えないとき受話器からきこえる
君の声がかすれている
久しぶりに逢った時の
君の笑顔が胸をさらっていく
Crazy

Revelation

Utada Hikaru's First Love is parallel to Beverly Craven's Promise Me. The poetic start and the anguished heart...


Saigo no kisu wa
Tabako no flavor ga shita
Nigakute setsunai kaori

(the last kiss
tasted like tobacco
a bitter and sad smell )

Ashita no imagoro ni wa
Anata wa doko ni iru n' darou
Dare wo omotte 'ru n' darou tomorrow,

(at this time
where will you be?
who will you be thinking about? )

-------------------------------------

You light up another cigarette
And I pour the wine
It's four o'clock in the morning
And it's starting to get light
Now I'm right where I want to be
Losing track of time
But I wish that it was still last night

You look like you're in another world
But I can read your mind
How can you be so far away
Lying by my side
When I go away I'll miss you
And I will be thinking of you
Every night and day just ...
