Finding a true friend is as difficult as finding true love

There is something about Tokyo Tower which has led me to personally go and see the place – twice (both of my visits to Japan before).

But I am not going to write about Tokyo Tower, but the story that made me view the place differently – at least from my perspective. One of my favourite songs is from the Japanese drama – OVERTIME. I remember watching it over and over, while I was picking up the language (self-learning)- without any subtitles, sometime about 10 years ago (estimate, since I cannot remember the exact time frame).

The story was very simple yet impacted me so much, even until now. It was all about discovering a true friend while searching for true love. Now that I am older, it is so easy to relate all the conflicts and drama shown from the story.

The theme song of the drama, by Yamaguchi Yuko (I Believe) describes almost about everything I think and feel about finding the right person; to be not only a true friend but also as a person who share the meaning of giving true love in a relationship.


Original song lyrics

さみしくてことばもでないこんなよるは、
(samishikute kotoba mo denai konna yoru wa)
きみのえがをだきしめねむろ、Hmmm…
(kimi no egao dakishime nemuro humm )
ふたりならどしゃぶりの雨こごえるあさ、
(futari nara doshaburi no ame kogoeru asa )
手をつないできったあるけるそばで。
(te o tsunaide kitto arukeru sobade )
I believeきえかけたあのひのゆめ、
(I believe kie kaketa ano hi no yume )
いつでも手をかざしまもる、わすれない。
(itsudemo te o kazashi mamoru wasurenai)

When I'm feeling small
When it's cold outside
I don't know who I should believe
And when I needed someone special just by my side
Who was there?

I believe someday I will love
Someone who's by my side
Oh someday
My special one will come alone
I'll pray everyday
I believeきえかけたあのひのゆめ、
(I believe kie kaketa ano hi no yume )
いつでも手をかざしまもる
(itsudemo te o kazashi mamoru)
So I believeもしもかぜにふるえているときは
(So I believe moshimo kazeni furuete iru toki wa)
ふたりでさがそひのさすばしょう
(futari de sagaso hi no sasu basho)

Someday I will love
Someone who's by my side
Oh someday oh someday
I keep on praying everyday
My interpretation of the lyrics:-

Lonely tonight, there no word made
Your smiling face will remain close until my sleep
Two of us, in the morning after a heavy rain
Where you certainly can walk next to my side
I believe of that day where (my) dream come true
(The feeling) of two (of us) holding hand will not be forgotten

When I'm feeling small 
When it's cold outside 
I don't know who I should believe 
And when I needed someone special just by my side 
Who was there? 

I believe someday I will love 
Someone who's by my side 
Oh someday 
My special one will come alone 
I'll pray everyday 

I believe of that day where (my) dream come true
(The feeling) of two (of us) holding hand will not be forgotten
So I believe (even in) the time of (strong blowing) wind
Both of us will find the place where the day shines

Someday I will love 
Someone who's by my side 
Oh someday oh someday 
I keep on praying everyday
