[Lyrics Romanization] MISIA – Aitakute ima


This is not a new song but only recently did I listen to MISIA latest album. It’s been a long time since I last listened to her. I quite like this album, Just Ballade. Her voice is still as powerful as always.

I think I’m going to gradually romanized the songs that I like in this album – as a practice for me šŸ˜› . I have stopped my Japanese lessons and getting lazy already.

Aitakute ima

Lyrics: MISIA

Melody: Jun Sasaki

hajimete deatta hi no koto oboetemasu ka
sugi yuku ni no omoide o wasurezuni ite
anata ga mitsumeta subete o kanjite itakute
sora o miageta ima wa soko de watashi o mimamotteiru no? oshiete…

ima aitai anata ni
tsutaetai koto ga takusan aru
nee aitai aitai
kizukeba omokage sagashite kanashikute
doko ni iru no? dakishimete yo
watashi wa koko ni iru yo zutto

mou nido to aenai koto o shitte ita nara
tsunaida te o itsumade mo hanasazu ni ita
[koko ni ite] to sou sunao ni naite ita nara
ima anata wa kawaranu mama watashi no tonari de waratte iru kana

ima aitai anata ni
kiite hoshii koto ippai aru
nee aitai aitai
namida ga afurete toki wa itazura ni sugida
nee aitai dakishimete yo
anata o omotte iru zutto

unmei ga kaerarenakute mo tsutaetai koto ga aru
[modoritai…] ano hi ano toki ni kanau no nara nani mo iranai

ima aitai anata ni
shitte hoshii koto ippai aru
nee aitai aitai
dou shiyou mo nakute subete yume to negatta
kono kokoro wa mada naite iru
anata o omotte iru zutto

Notes to self:
1. “面影” (omokage) means face, looks, vestige
2. “ē¹‹ć„恠” (tsunaida) from “ē¹‹ćŽ” (tsunagi) means stopgap measure, filler
3. “ē“ ē›“” (sunao) means honest, frank
4. “ęƒ³ć„” = “ꀝ恄” (omoi)
5. “運命” (unmei) means fate

  1. Has there ever been such a song that portrayed enough passion that knowing & understanding the Japanese language becomes superfluous? That’s how I felt hearing this beautiful piece of music.

    I discovered this song while watching “JIN”, a Japanese drama that was just as exceptional as it’s soundtrak.” MISIA”… this soulful songtress blew me away with her voice and range. I didn’t need to know the words, as the emotion was evident. She is clearly one of my favorite japanese artist.

  2. I really wanted to download this song. I noticed it while watching JIN. It is sooo revelant to the story..
    Misia’s voice touches my heart. ā¤
