A song from my childhood memories.

when i first watched cowboy bebop, the thing that intrigued me the most about it was the music.  it had a great selection of music, mainly blues.  japanese blues music is very good.  this is my favorite from from the series. it is called “Real Folks Blues”.  below are the lyrics:

Original / Romaji LyricsEnglish Translation
  Aishiteta to nageku ni wa  Amari ni mo toki  wa sugi te shimatta  Mada kokoro no hokorobi o  Iyasenumama kaze ga fuiteru
It's too late to cry I love you.The wind still blowing, my heart still aching
  Hitotsu no me de asu o mite  Hitotsu no me de kinou mitsumeteru  Kimi no ai no yurikagode  Mo ichido yasurakani nemuretara
One side of my eyes see tomorrow,And the other one see yesterdayI hope I could sleep in the cradle of your love, again
  Kawaita hitomi de dareka na itekure
Cry for me, somebody, with dry eyes
  *The real folk blues   Honto no kanashimi ga shiritaidake   Doro no kawa ni sukatta jinsei mo warukuwanai   Ichido kiri de owarunara
*The real folk bluesI just want to feel a real sorrowIt's not bad a life in the muddy riverIf life is once
  Kibou ni michita zetsuboto  Wanagashikakerareteru kono chansu  Nani ga yoku te warui no ka  Koin no omoi to kuramitaita
Hopeless hope, and the chance with trapsWhat is right, or wrongIt's like a both side of a coin
  Dore dake ikireba iyasareru no darou
How long I must live till I release?
  The real folk blues  Honto no yorokobi ga shiritai dake  Hikaru mono no subete ga ougen to wa kagiranai
The real folk bluesI just want to feel a real pleasureAll that glitters is not gold
  * repeat
*repeat
