Belajar Bahasa Jepang

Akhirnya kantor dan saya memutuskan untuk mulai kursus bahasa Jepang karena kebutuhan kantor yang mulai fokus dengan principal Jepang. Saya memang masih sangat newbie, baru belajar karakter Hiragana dan katakana hehehe.

Satuhal yang membuat saya mau dan semangat untuk belajar bahasa Jepang adalah sebuah lagu lawas yaitu True Love dari Fuji Fumiya. Lagu ini muncul di Indonesia sekitar tahun 1994, soundtrack dari serial drama Jepang berjudul Ordinary People dengan pemain Narumi dan kakei. Ditahun itu kecintaan saya sama budaya Jepang mulai muncul dan saya hari ini saya masih hapal diluar kepala lagu ini tanpa saya tahu bagaimana menulisnya Kana dan Kanji.  Ayuklah kita nyanyi saja sekalian belajar bahasa Jepang 🙂

Furikaeru to Itsumo kimi ga waratte kureta
Kaze no you ni sotto
Mabushi sugite Me wo tojite mo ukande kuru yo
Namida ni kawatteku

Kimi dake wo shinjite Kimi dake wo kizutsukete
Bokura wa Itsumo Haruka haruka tooi mirai wo
Yumemiteta hazu sa

Tachidomaru to Nazeka kimi wa utsumuita mama
Ame no you ni sotto
Kawaranai yo Ano hi kimi to deatta hi kara
Namida ni kawatte mo

Kimi dake wo mitsumete Kimi dake shika inakute
Bokura wa Itsumo Haruka haruka tooi mirai wo
Yumemiteta hazu sa Yumemiteta hazu sa

My Savior My God

I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed what God Has planned
I only know at his right hand
Stands one who is my Savior

I take him at his word and deed
Christ died to save me this I read
And in my heart I find the need
Of him to be my Savior

That he would leave his place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You called it strange so once did I
Before I knew my Savior

Reff 2x:
My Savior loves My Savior lives
My Savior’s always there for me
My God he was My God he is
My God he’s always gonna be

Yes living, dying let me bring
My strength my Solace from the Spring
That he who lives to be my king
Once died to be my Savior

That he would leave his place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You called it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior

Back to reff 2x

Hallelujah

Saya lagi suka dengerin lagu Hallelujah versi anak ajaib dari brazil yaitu Jotta featuring Michely Manuely. Berhubung saya tidak tahu artinya, pake bahasa inggris saja liriknya. Let’s sing

i heard there was a secret chord
that david played and it pleased the lord
but you don’t really care for music, do you
well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
the baffled king composing hallelujah

hallelujah…

well your faith was strong but you needed proof
you saw her bathing on the roof
her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
she tied you to her kitchen chair
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the hallelujah

hallelujah…

baby i’ve been here before
i’ve seen this room and i’ve walked this floor
i used to live alone before i knew you
i’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
but love is not a victory march
it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

hallelujah…

well there was a time when you let me know
what’s really going on below
but now you never show that to me do you
but remember when i moved in you
and the holy dove was moving too
and every breath we drew was hallelujah

well, maybe there’s a god above
but all i’ve ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
it’s not a cry that you hear at night
it’s not somebody who’s seen the light
it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

hallelujah…

I Won’t Give Up

When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There’s so much they hold

And just like them old stars
I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

And when you’re needing your space
To do some navigating
I’ll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

‘Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We’ve got a lot to learn
God knows we’re worth it
No, I won’t give up

I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake

And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not, and who I am

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up, still looking up.

I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

Tiup lilin for our first special celebration

Bryan Adams – Here I Am

Tema lagu bulan ini adalah  Bryan Adam – Here I Am. Lagu yang memberikan saya semangat untuk terus berkarya. It’s a new world it’s a new start. It’s alive with the beating of young hearts. It’s a new day it ‘s a new plan and i’ve been waiting for you… here I am *karokean*.

Tanpa berlama-lama, mari nyanyi lagu ini biar tambah semangat 😀

Here I am this is me
There’s no where else on Earth I’d rather be
Here I am it’s just me and you
And tonight we make our dreams come true

It’s a new world it’s a new start
It’s alive with the beating of young hearts
It’s a new day it ‘s a new plan
I’ve been waiting for you
Here I am

Here we are we’ve just begun
And after all this time our time has come
Ya here we are still goin’ strong
Right here in the place where we belong

Here I am next to you

Elegi Kehidupan

Lagu-lagu sekarang ini kok lebih banyak cerita tentang cinta, selingkuh, patah hati, galau. Kadang saya jenuh dengan pilihan lagu sekarang. Apakah masih ada yang mau menciptakan lagu tentang tema yang lain?  Masih ada sih yang eskis mempertahankan tema humanis, alam, lingkungan  seperti Bang Ebit G ade, Iwan Fals, Nugi, dll. Sayang, jumlahnya masih bisa dihitung dengan jari. Gambar diambil disini.

Saya masih ingat, ketika kecil saya sering nyanyi Lagu Elegi Kehidupan yang dinyanyikan oleh Julius Sitanggang. Lagu tentang keindahan alam. Liriknya bagus deh, seperti dibawah ini:

Pandanglah telaga bening
Kita rasakan kedamaian
Gemercik suara air menghempas batuan
Senandung alam tercipta

Pucuk daunanpun bergoyang
Kupu-kupu hinggap dibunga
Sayup kicau burung dialam bebas ini
memekikan kerinduan

Saksikan langit nan biru mega yang berarak
Bagai lukisan sang dewa dalam legendanya
Cobalah jauh menatap lebih dalam lagi
Mari ungkapkan seribu rahasia alam

Mungkin kau disitu damai abadi berada
Tiada kenistaan tiada lagi kegalauan
Mungkin kau disana terbentang taman cintanya
semua tak menjawab karena kita tak bertanya

Semoga lebih banyak lagi musisi dan pencipta lagu  yang mau berkisah tentang anak, alam dan kehidupan. Ada yang tahu lagu diatas dan bisa menyanyikannya? Nyanyi bareng yuk 😀
