I remember when I first heard of Rie Fu. It was when she did the Bleach 1st ending “Life is Like a Boat.” For those who listen to Rie Fu religiously, you may understand what I mean when I say that I was very surprised when I first heard her 11th single Romantic. Compared to Rie Fu’s usual instrumental ballad like sound, for this single she switched to a more techno beat style. Although I was surprised, the single still turned out well. I really enjoy the song Romantic, the back and forth feeling created by the repeating strings synthesizer, and especially @ 3:09 when an odd pitch bell like sound rang blurring the sound a bit. To me, it felt like a single tear drop rolling across someone’s face, creating his or her vision to be distorted.

Kanji lyrics
会いたいあなたを考える それでも言葉にできず
辛く切ないけどそばにいたい still want you by my side
戸惑う心 揺らぐ感情 友情だけじゃ余計に切ない
いつも一緒にいたあの頃 楽しかったから
でもいつもそばにはいられないね 一番じゃないなら
それでも大切に思ってるyou stay in my heart

いつの日にか伝えよう あなたをずっと好きなこと
笑顔になったそのときを 心の中やきつけて

街ですれ違うだけのつながり 色が重なり 景色広がる
特別な出会い探してる 運命なんて言葉飛び交う
寂しさを当たり前と思ってた 友達に打ち明けた
いこいのときには必ず やさしい人がそばにいた

いつの日にか伝えよう 傷つくこと恐れずに
あなたと出会えたことが どんな傷も癒すから

I just wanna be with you tonight,
I just wanna be the one to shine
I just wanna be with you tonight in your arms,
oh can you hold me tight?
Every time I close my eyes I see,
you reflecting through my memory
I just wanna be with you tonight in your arms,
oh can you hold me tight?
いつの日にか…あなたをずっと…
(あなたといるこのときを 儚くそっと包むよう
笑顔になったそのときを 心の中やきつけて
あなたといるこのときを 儚くそっと包むよう
笑顔になったそのときを 心の中やきつけて)

笑顔になったそのときを 心の中やきつけて

会いたいあなたを考える それでも言葉にできず
辛く切ないけどそばにいたい still want you by my side


English Translation

I want to see you, always thinking about you, but those words are too good to be true.
Even though it’s painful and heart-breaking, I still want you by my side
My confused heart trembles with emotion, it’s much too painful to just be friends.
We’re always together all the time, because we have so much fun
but I can’t be by your side, because I’m not your #1
and yet i feel I’m important to you. You stay in my heart

One of these days I’ll be able to tell you I’ve loved you all along.
That time I made you smile is burned into my heart.

Our relationship is to just pass each other in the street and colors overlapping as the the scene stretches out
Searching for our special meeting; Why has fate decreed that we must fly past each other?
I thought that before this loneliness hit me I would open my heart to my friend.
It’s certainly time to rest, yet I still want this kind person by my side.

One of these days I’ll be able to tell you I’m afraid of getting hurt.
If I’m able to meet you by chance, what kinds of wounds could you heal?

I just wanna be with you tonight
I just wanna be the one to shine
I just wanna be with you tonight in your arms
Oh can you hold me tight?
Every time I close my eyes I see
You reflecting through my memory
I just wanna be with you tonight in your arms
Oh can you hold me tight?

One of these days…always you…
That time I made you smile is burned into my heart.

I want to see you, always thinking about you, but the words are too good to be true.
Even though it’s painful and heart-breaking, I still want you by my side.
