This song was written by Utada Hikaru and Paul Carter, originally for the movie Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo. I first heard it from a friend of mine and immediately fell in love. I am in awe at Utada's ability to express deep and often painful emotions with her melodies and lyrics, and I wanted to give it my own spin. Please enjoy. <3


(Japanese - Romaji)

Hiraita bakari no hana ga chiru no wo
"kotoshi mo hayai ne" to
zannen sou ni miteita anata wa
totemo kirei datta
moshi ima no watashi wo mireta nara
dou omou deshou
anata nashi de ikiteru watashi wo

Everybody finds love
In the end

Anata ga mamotta machi no dokoka de kyou mo hibiku
sukoyaka na ubugoe wo kiketa nara
kitto yorokobu deshou
watashi-tachi no tsuzuki no ashioto

Everybody finds love
In the end

Mou nido to aenai nante shinjirarenai
mada nanimo tsutaetenai
mada nanimo tsutaetenai

Hiraita bakari no hana ga chiru no wo
miteita kodachi no yarusenaki ka na
donna ni kowaku tatte me wo sorasanai yo
subete no owari ni ai ga aru nara

(English translation)

When you said, "They're early this year too,"
looking with disappointment
at the flowers scattering after they had just opened,
you were so beautiful.

If you were to look at me now,
what would you think
about me, living without you?

Everybody finds love
In the end

If you heard the healthy sound of of a baby's first cry
sounding again today from somewhere within the town you protected,
I'm sure you would be happy
about the footsteps following after us.

Everybody finds love
In the end

I can't believe that I'll never see you again.
I haven't told you anything yet.
I haven't told you anything yet.

Watching flowers that have just blossomed fall
the trees stood by, helpless.
However great the fear, I will not look away
if at the end of everything, there is love.
