Nawatobi

Lyrics:

I feel as though our encounter has changed me somehow
Thanks to you, I’ve found just who I want to become
I’ve always been trying hard to improve myself
But there’s this persistent longing that’s deep within my heart

When we were kids everyone would play jump rope together
And I always was too afraid to go and join in
Hesitant and alone, I needed somebody
Turns out I was waiting for you to jump in too

When I feel like giving up you reach out your hand to support me
Your hand is so gentle and warm, just like you, I love how it feels

My gratitude to you overflows I can’t contain it
Everyday I advance a little bit towards my dreams
My gratitude to you overflows I can’t contain it
It’s all thanks to you

I am happy now, I’m so happy now
And I don’t know what to do
Tears roll down my cheek
Tears of joy

Sometimes I’d want to hang my head, too embarrassed to speak
You help me to say goodbye to all hesitations
I have been longing to let go and be free
I can’t let my feelings for you live only in my heart

We all would jump along the rope as it would swing around
And I was there happily smiling and laughing along
So let’s stay together and play like children
Because that joyous feeling is precious to me

When I was lost along the way you would show me the path
Your eyes are so gentle and warm, just like you, they make me blush

My heart is beating fast it only happens when you’re here
Everyday I achieve a little bit more of my dreams
My heart is beating fast it only happens when you’re here
So I’m thanking you

Isn’t this so fun? Aren’t you having fun?
What if I try to hug you?
Tears roll down my cheek
Tears of joy

My gratitude to you overflows I can’t contain it
Everyday I advance a little bit towards my dreams
My gratitude to you overflows I can’t contain it
Thank you

I am happy now, I’m so happy now
And I don’t know what to do
Tears roll down my cheek
Tears of joy
