Just a moment ago we were a couple in love. I thought I was your girl that I would always be enough But you opened your heart and put on display all your desires you kept tucked away But didn't explain what good could come from so much pain. Just a moment ago we were a couple in love. You said “I won’t leave you”! But you’d already packed your stuff. So you opened the door and just walked away, from so many years and one precious day. And you never knew how many nights I cried for you. Just a moment ago we were a couple in love. You said “I won’t leave you”! But you’d already packed your stuff. So you opened the door and just walked away, from so many years and one precious day. And you never knew how many nights I cried for you. How many nights, how many nights, how many nights, I cried for you.

You will always be the love of my life, and I will stay with you through happiness and strife. It is by your side where I need to be, since only you can make my heavy heart feel free. So my life means nothing if you won’t be mine, and if I have to share you it will have to be fine, it will have to be fine. Every day I spend in hope and in fear ‘cause everywhere I search for words to make you hear, that you will always be what love means to me. You will always be the love of my life, and I will stay with you through happiness and strife. It is by your side where I need to be, since only you can make my heavy heart feel free. So my life means nothing if you won’t be mine, and if I have to share you it will have to be fine, it will have to be fine. Every day I spend in hope and in fear ‘cause everywhere I search for words to make you hear, that you will always be what love means to me.

In the past between our hearts, there used to be a bridge. Sadness couldn’t last, because no broken heart stayed alone. Oh beautiful bridge, you seemed so strong. How did we miss where things went wrong? Though I’m looking straight into your eyes, and my arms are reaching for your face, my darling love, I just cannot get to your side. In the past, between our hearts, there used to be a bridge. No distress could last because our love took it away. Please find me again, across this ridge, ‘cause you still know, between our hearts, there used to be a bridge. Sadness couldn’t last, because no broken heart stayed alone. Oh beautiful bridge, you seemed so strong. How did we miss where things went wrong? Though I’m looking straight into your eyes, and my arms are reaching for your face, my darling love, I just cannot get to your side. In the past, between our hearts, there used to be a bridge. No distress could last because our love took it away. There is no chance I could explain, how much my life would be in vain If the way across the bridge were forever closed. Please, sweetest love, Send back your heart across the ridge.

The blue sky of my little world, my first thought in the morning, my last thought at night: It’s you, it’s all about you, and I hope that when I find courage to tell you how I feel, you won’t mind. ‘Cause tonight, we are so tight. You told me: let’s be on our guard. Let’s not say the forbidden that makes things so hard. ‘Cause if you think of someone all day long, It doesn’t directly mean that you are in love. Please don’t mind, ‘cause tonight, we are so tight. Freedom, freedom, freedom. Completely free, completely free. Everything’s just a moment; yet everything is linked. Open minds can find freedom, as open hearts can love. Freedom, love, freedom, love. Freedom, freedom: the choice can be tough. The blue sky of my little world, my first thought in the morning, my last thought at night: It’s you, it’s all about you, and I hope that when I find courage to tell you how I feel, you won’t mind. ‘Cause tonight, we are so tight. It’s you, it’s about you, and maybe you can’t be bound. It’s you, it’s all about you. It’s you, it’s all about you. It’s you, it’s all about you, but maybe you’ll come around.

about

As she recovered from the shock of being abandoned by her long-time husband, Kimiko Ishizaka began to write songs to express the hurt and fear that she felt, as well as reaffirm the love that she still had for him. These are the songs that saved love.
