Tamaki Koji 玉置浩二ーIkanaide 行かないで

The first time I heard this song was Hong Kong singer Jacky Cheung's (張學友) cover version "Li Xiang Lan" (李香蘭).  I knew all along that the original was Tamaki Koji's but never got the chance to listen to it..., until recently.  And of course thanks to YouTube again.



Nothing against Jacky Cheung but I really like the original version more.

行かないで

曲:玉置浩二
詩:松井五郎

なにもみえない なにも
ずっと泣いてた
だけど悲しんじゃない
あたたかいあなたにふれたのがうれしくて

あー 行かないで 行かないで
いつまでもずっとはなさないで
あー 行かないで 行かないで
このままで

いつか心は いつか
遠いどこかで
みんな想い出になると
知らなくていいのに
知らなくていいのに

あー 行かないで 行かないで
どんなときでもはなさないで
あー 行かないで 行かないで
このままで

あー 行かないで 行かないで
いつまでもずっとはなさないで
あー 行かないで 行かないで
このままで

Please Don't Go Away

Composer: Tamaki Koji
Lyrics: Matsui Goro

Nothing visible, nothing
I have been crying throughout
Not because I feel sorrowful
But because of the delight of feeling your warmth

Ah… Please don't go away, please don't go away
Please don't ever ever let us separate
Ah… Please don't go away, please don't go away
Let's remain this way

Someday my heart, someday
Will be somewhere afar
That everything will turn into memory
Though it's better not to know
Though it's better not to know

Ah… Please don't go away, please don't go away
Whenever it is, don't let us separate
Ah… Please don't go away, please don't go away
Let's remain this way

Ah… Please don't go away, please don't go away
Please don't ever ever let us separate
Ah… Please don't go away, please don't go away
Let's remain this way
