Wish – Arashi


A year ago, my addiction to anything Asian was limited to Taiwanese and Korean stuff. Until I saw my first jdorama which was Hana Yori Dango. A friend of mine recommended that I watch it. This drama is the Japanese version of the Taiwanese drama Meteor Garden. At first I was a bit hesitant to watch it — as I was afraid that it wouldn’t live up to the Taiwanese version. But when I saw it.. boy was I suprised! It was shorter (only total of 20 episodes for hyd 1 and 2).

The beginning song of the drama is also a favorite of mine (notice I have lots of favorite Asian songs :D.. i can’t help it!). It was a song called Wish sung by Arashi.  Jun Matsumoto, who played Domyouji Tsukasa in the drama, is one of the members of the Jpop band. I loved the music video of the song.. It had a story of a painter who falls in love with a maiden in a town. He paints the picture of the girl on a big wall to show how much he loves the girl.. sigh.. wish someone would do that for me too ahahaha! I wanted to share this music to everyone so here it is.

Wish Lyrics (Romanji)

Machi ni ai no uta nagarehajimetara
Hitobito wa yorisoiau
Kagayaki no naka e boku wa kimi wo kitto
Tsurete itte miseru yo

Koi wa todokanai toki wo keiken suru uchi ni
Tsuyoku natte yuku mono da ne setsunai mune sae

Kimi ni niai no otoko ni naru made kono boku ni
Furimuite wa kurenai mitai tekibishii kimi sa

Sugiteku kisetsu wo utsukushii to omoeru konogoro
Kimi ga soko ni iru kara da to shitta no sa
Ima koso tsutaeyou

Machi ni ai no uta nagarehajimetara
Hitobito wa yorisoiau
Kagayaki no naka e boku wa kimi wo kitto
Tsurete itte miseru yo

Yasashii otoko ni narou to kokoromite mita keredo
Kimi wa sonna boku ja marude monotarinain da ne

Kaze atari tsuyoi sakamichi mo nobotte ikeba ii
Futari de ikite yukeru nara boku ga kimi wo mamoru
Chikaou

Machi ni ai no uta nagarehajimetara
Hitobito wa hohoemiau
Kane no ne hibiku toki boku wa kimi wo kitto
Tsuyoku dakishimete iru

Machi ni ai no uta nagarehajimetara
Hitobito wa ai wo kataru
Kagayaki no naka e boku wa kimi wo kitto
Tsurete itte miseru yo

Kimi wo ai shitsuzukeru

Wish Translation (translation by kiwi musume)

As a love song begins to drift through the town
People cuddle up together
I’ll surely take you
Into the light

This experience of loving someone and having my love not reach them
Is making me stronger, even my aching heart
It seems that until I become kind of guy you like
You won’t even look my way, you’re so cruel

I’ve just realised that the reason I think the changing seasons are beautiful
Is because you’re there
I’m going to tell you now

As a love song begins to drift through the town
People cuddle up together
I’ll surely take you
Into the light

I tried to become a nice guy for you
But that kind of guy is nowhere near enough for you, is it?
We need to climb this windy, uphill path
If we can live together, I’ll protect you
I swear

As a love song begins to drift through the town
People smile at each other
When bells ring out, I’ll surely
Be holding you tight

As a love song begins to drift through the town
People cuddle up together
I’ll surely take you
Into the light

I’ll keep loving you
