作詞:御徒町凧 
作曲:森山直太朗 
編曲:河野伸 

もしもあなたが 雨に濡れ 
言い訳さえも できないほどに 
何かに深く 傷付いたなら 
せめて私は 手を結び 
風に綻ぶ 花になりたい 
if you were to get wet in the rain
or get hurt by something so deep that
you can’t even explain it
at least let me join your hands
i want to be that flower blooming in the wind

もしもあなたの 夢破れ 
行き先のない 日々は暮れゆき 
信じることさえできなくなれば 
せめて私が 声にして 
明日に揺蕩(たゆた)う 歌をうたおう 
if your dreams were to be broken
and another day passed with nowhere to go
if you can’t even believe anymore
at least let me with my voice
sing out the song that will carry you to tomorrow

花のように 花のように 
ただそこに咲くだけで 美しくあれ 
人はみな 人はみな 
大地を強く踏みしめて 
それぞれの花 心に宿す
just like a flower, just like a flower 
that beautiful one that only blooms here
every one of us, every one of us
has their feet firmly on the ground
the flower we each have, is kept in our hearts

例えこの身が 果てるとも 
戦(そよ)ぐ島風 願いに染まれ 
even if this body were to perish
the stirring island wind would carry on my wishes

花のように 花のように 
ただ風に揺れるだけの この生命 
人と人 また 人と人 
紡ぐ時代に身をまかせ 
それぞれの実が 撓わなればと 
just like a flower, just like a flower
this life that just sways in the wind
from person to person and from person to person
we entrust ourselves to the changing times
so that our ideals won’t be put down

花のように 花のように 
ただそこに咲くだけで 美しくあれ 
人は今 人は今 
大地を強く踏みしめて 
それぞれの花 心に宿す 
just like a flower, just like a flower 
that beautiful one that only blooms here
we all now, we all now
have our feet firmly on the ground
the flower we each have, is kept in our hearts

大地を強く踏みしめて 
それぞれの花 心に宿す
having our feet firmly on the ground
the flower we each have, is kept in our hearts

Once upon a bicycle November 14, 2008

” …. I thought I knew who I was, but over the past few years i began to realize, that in some areas, i still had my stabilizers on. {Some bicycle has a stabilizer on each side of the wheel. These stabilizers, some people called it training wheels, made everyone who can’t ride a bike, become the expert of it, until it has been taken away from them.~a} I hadn’t even begun to try and let the real me come to the surface and remove the support i was so heavily resting upon. I had to face the fact that, if i started to remove some of my stabilizers, i would have to risk people seeing the real me. 

Inside myself i had a battle going on. I knew it was the right thing to do but I didn’t want other people to see me wobble and take a tumble; I didn’t want them to see me careering along, feeling out of control. I thought I was a confident rider. Yet my confidence in some areas was in the training wheels, and if I was to continue with my journey I had to let them go.

I now realize that this journey of identity is a life-long one which i must thoroughly explore if I am to discover who I am. This has meant that in areas of my life I had to detach from people, comforts, and securities that were acting as my spiritual stabilizers. Since  then, I have fallen off my “bike” a few times. I have grazed my knee and made mistakes along the way. But now, I can confidently say I have found my balance and am learning how to ride in my own right…”

Sometimes the measure of friendship isn’t your ability to not harm but your capacity to forgive the things done to you and ask forgiveness for your own mistakes.

The only thing that lasts longer than a friend’s love is the stupidity that keeps us from knowing any better.
