jpn 美しい人
eng Beautiful Person
by Maaya Sakamoto
from J-POP
kono koe ga kikoeru nara wataridori yo michibiite
inochi ga oboeteiru harukanaru ano basho e

O birds of passage, show me the way if you hear my voice.
Lead me to the distant land that my life remembers.

uminari kokoro ga osore ni torawarenu you ni
utatte anata no umareta kuni no kotoba de

Ocean rumbles, please let my heart be free from fear.
Sing for me, in the tongue of the land you were born in.

meili de ren mitsumeaeba meili de ren
hitomi no naka onaji kibou no hi wo tomoshiteru

Beautiful person, if you look into my eyes, beautiful person,
You'll see in your eyes, the same flames of hope are lit.

mada minu kanochi no hana wa marude suzunone no hibiki
nishi eto mukau kaze ni akogare yo habataite

The flowers in that land we cannot yet see, are like the sound of ringing bells.
O my yearnings, spread your wings and fly with the westward breeze.

tenohira kasanete namiutsu futatsu no kodou
oshiete futari wo hedateteiru mono wa nani

Put your palm over mine and feel the beating of our hearts.
Tell me, what is it that separates us from each other?

qin'ai de ren toki ga kureba qin'ai de ren
hikari no naka kodoku wa nukumori ni toketeiku

Dearest person, when the time comes, dearest person,
In the light, loneliness will melt away in a warm embrace.

kono koe ga kikoeru nara wataridori yo michibiite
kiri mo yoru mo arashi mo ai dake wa ubaenai
tori ga umi wo wataru you ni hito wa hito wo shiru tame ni
inochi ga oboeteiru harukanaru ano basho e

O birds of passage, show me the way if you hear my voice.
Through the fog, the night, the storm, my love cannot be taken.
So people may understand others like the birds fly across oceans,
Lead us to the distant land that our lives remember.

anata ni furete hoshii akogare yo dakiyosete

I long for your touch. O my yearnings, embrace me.

todoite watashi no umareta kuni no kotoba de
meili de ren aishiteiru meili de ren
meili de ren aishiteiru meili de ren

May my feelings reach you, in the tongue of the land I was born in.
Beautiful person, I love you, beautiful person.
Beautiful person, I love you, beautiful person.
