it's such a sad and powerful song but it has a hint of 'I will be strong' .. i love it to bits...

i was translating 'Tokyo Friends' as part of 'Kioku Fansub', and had to do this, so I thought I'd post it here too. Look out for the Preview of 'Tokyo Friends' by Kioku. The preview will be released on Christmas.

Season's greetings everyone.

^_^

Thank you for the translations. They seem very exact, because I've read other translations for this song, but they have different words.

I love this song. The Love Jam version though. Not the Sabakan version. I was just getting into Otsuka Ai when I heard this song, and when my friend went back to Japan I made her a really cute page in our notebook we had with the lyrics of this song ;_; ...even though she didn't like Otsuka Ai. But she liked this song though ^^
