Tatsuro Yamashita – Zutto Issho Sa

Tatsuro Yamashita - Zutto Issho Sa

Normally when I watch a Japanese drama, I will skip the ending credits part. But in “Bara no nai Hanaya” I let it played until the end because the song played in the ending credits sequence is very nice to listen! It is the drama theme song call “Zutto Issho sa” written and sang by one of the most influential Japanese musician Tatsuro Yamashita.

“Bara no nai Hanaya” is my most favorite drama of the winter 2008 season. The story is nice and engaging, the relationship is very twisting and interesting. It is not an ordinary getsu 9 love drama. I’m definitely recommend this drama to everyone. “Zutto Issho sa” portrays the look and feel of the drama, and the lyric is beautiful too.

Tatsuro Yamashita – Zutto Issho Sa

Lyric/Music: Tatsuro Yamashita

shijima no naka de
anata no koe wo kikasete

namida wo tokashite

ikutsu mo no kanashimi wo
kuguri nuke ta sono ato de
tsunai da te no atataka sa ga

sore dake de nani mo ira nai
hiru mo yoru mo yume no naka made
zutto zutto issho sa

kizu tsui ta

sore dake de nani mo ira nai
toki no umi ni mirai wo ukabe
zutto zutto

山下達郎 – ずっと一緒さ





昼も夜も 夢の中まで
ずっと ずっと 一緒さ





たどリ着いた 僕らの場所で
ずっと ずっと 一緒さ

時の海に 未来を浮かべ
ずっと ずっと
ずっと 一緒さ
ずっと ずっと 一緒さ
ずっと 一緒さ…

English translation (incomplete)

Wrap your arms around me amidst the silence
Let me hear your voice

Melt away these lingering tears
The winter’s almost over

After making it past so much sadness
The warmth from our two hands tells it all

I want to spend the rest of my life with you
That’s all I need, nothing else

Noon or night or in my dreams
Forever, forever… Together

If it means I can spend the rest of my life with you
I’ll change who I am

Entrusting the future to the sea of time
Forever, forever… Together

    Thanks to your mention of this drama, I’ve watched 7 episodes in the span of two days. The storyline is brilliant!

    …But back on topic of the song, “Zutto Issho Sa”; I also agree it’s a good song and it fits the drama very well. 🙂

    Hi Fath,

    I can read, write and speak Japanese, but not very pro, mada heta desu. Now taking Japanese language class.

  • http://www.pelangipetang.com Fath

    I see… It’s the toughest language to learn, rite? you’re cool 🙂

  • http://www.jay-han.com jayhan

    Maybe because I know Chinese language, I found out that learning Japanese is not that painful.

    After *ahem this song and when going to scrobble in last.fm.
    The information of Yamashita Tatsuro really shock me… very hard to believe that this song is from a hit star that start to active on the year 1972…

    “In 2003, HMV listed Tatsuro as the worlds 74th most influential musician, and at No.6 in their list of Japan’s top 100 musicians, for his influence on the music industry.

    He was also listed at No.5 in their list of the worlds top 50 greatest singers, and at No.1 in their list of Japan’s top 30 singers.”

    Hello, was searching for the lyrics for this song and chanced upon your site. Would like to thank you for providing the Japanese lyrics too. It isn’t easy to find original Japanese lyrics on the net, you know 🙁 (I just wanna copy and paste them to my iPod) People are always posting them in romanji only.. and Japan sites disallow you to copy off.. so, thank you very much! I enjoyed the drama alot too, one of my favourites.
