Forget about the thesis for the time being..... let all the pressure and tension fly for a moment until the viva... stuck to my new hobby, putting all my favourite Japanese song... enjoy listening to me...


Artist: Smap
Title: Sekai ni Hitotsu Dake no Hana
Words: Makihara Noriyuki
Music: Makihara Noriyuki


Number one ni naranakutemoii
Moto moto tokubetsuna Only One

Hanaya no misesaki ni naranda
Ironna hana wo mitte ita
Hito sorezore konomi wa aru kedo
Doremo minna kirei da ne
Kono naka de dare ga ichiban da nante
Arasou koto mo shinaide
Baketsu no naka hokorashige ni
Shanto mune o hatte iru

Sore na no ni bokura ningen wa
Doushite kou mo kurabetagaru ?
Hitori hitori chigau no ni sono naka de
Ichiban ni naritagaru?

Sou sa bokura wa
Sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana
Hitori hitori chigau tane wo motsu
Sono hana wo sakaseru koto dake ni
Isshoukenmei ni nareba ii

Komatta you ni warainagara
Zutto mayotteru hito ga iru
Ganbatte saita hana wa doremo
Kirei dakara shikata nai ne
Yatto mise kara dete kita
Sono hito ga kakaete ita
Irotoridori no hanataba to
Ureshisou na yokogao

Namae mo shiranakatta keredo
Ano hi boku ni egao wo kureta
Daremo kizukanai you na basho de
Saiteta hana no you ni

Sou sa bokura mo
Sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana
Hitori hitori chigau tane wo motsu
Sono hana wo sakaseru koto dake ni
Isshoukenmei ni nareba ii

Chiisai hana ya ookina hana
Hitotsu toshite onaji mono wa nai kara
Number one ni naranakutemo ii
Motomoto tokubetsu na only one

There's no need to be No. 1
you've always been a very special only one.

I saw many kinds of flowers lined up in front of the flowershop.
everyone has their favorite kinds but all of them are pretty.
Without competing to see which was the best among them,
they were standing straight up proudly inside the bucket.
So why then do we humans have to compare ourselves to one another?
Eventhough each and every person is different,
why do we want to be number one?
Yes we are each..

a flower unlike any other in the world
and each and everyone of us carries a different seed
We should focus all our efforts on trying to make that flower bloom.

There are people who are constantly unsure of what they want,
as they laugh a little put out.
It can't be helped, all those flowers,
that did everything they could to bloom, are pretty.
when at last that person comes out of the store,
they're holding a colorful bouquet
and I see them smiling happilly as they go by me.
I never knew their name but
that day they made me smile.

we too are like flowers that bloom in places where no one pays any attention.
Yes we too are each...

a flower unlike any other in the world
and each and everyone of us carries a different seed
We should focus all our efforts on trying to make that flower bloom.

Small flowers and big flowers, none are the same as one another.
There's no need to be No. 1
you've always been a very special only one.
