Music Monday—Makenaide ( Don’t Give Up )

When I’m feeling stressed and feeling down spirited, the lyrics of this song from Zard makes my heart uplifting and lively. Sakai Izumi, the lead vocalist of the band Zard died 3 years ago..Wherever you are, I want to thank you for all your songs that touched my heart. I’ll never forget you!!

Makenaide by ZARD ( English translation )

You must remember the excitement you feel
When your eyes suddenly meet
Keep shining like you did
In the pastel-coloured season
When I fell in love with you

Don’t give up, keep running
A little further, to the end
No matter how far apart we are
Our hearts are together
Chase your distant dreams

No matter what happens, I keep my face calm
And joke that it’ll all work out in the end
Dance with me tonight
And don’t forget that I still love
The way you are

Don’t give up, see
Your goals are getting closer
No matter how far apart we are
Our hearts are together
Feel my eyes on you

Don’t give up, keep running
A little further, to the end
No matter how far apart we are
Our hearts are together
Chase your distant dreams

Don’t give up, see
Your goals are getting closer
No matter how far apart we are
Our hearts are together
Feel my eyes on you
