Life is Like a Boat - Rei Fu

Nobody knows who I really am
I never felt this empty before
And if I ever need someone to come along
Who's gonna comfort me and keep me strong

We are all rowing the boat of fate
The waves keep on comin' and we can't escape
But if we ever get lost on our way
The waves would guide you thru another day

Tooku de iki wo shiteru
Toumei ni natta mitai
Kurayami ni omaeta kedo
Mekakushi sareteta dake

Inori wo sasagete
Atarashii hi wo matsu
Azayaka ni hikaru umi
Sono hate made

Nobody knows who I really am
Maybe they just don't give a damn
But if I ever need someone to come along
I know you would follow me, and keep me strong

Hito no kokoro wa utsuri yuku
Nugedashitaku naru
Tsuki wa mata atarashii shuuki de
Fune wo tsureteku

And every time I see your face,
The oceans heave up to my heart
You make me wanna strain at the oars,
And soon I can see the shore

Oh, I can see the shore
When will I see the shore?

I want you to know who I really am
I never thought I'd feel this way towards you
And if you ever need someone to come along
I will follow you, and keep you strong

Tabi wa mada tsudzuiteku
Odayaka na hi mo
Tsuki wa mata atarashii shuuki de
Fune wo terashidasu

Inori wo sasagete
Atarashii hi wo matsu
Azayaka ni hikaru umi
Sono hate made

And every time I see your face,
The oceans heave up to my heart
You make me wanna strain at the oars,
And soon I can see the shore

Unmei no fune wo kogi
Nami wa tsugi kara tsugi he to
Watashi-tachi wo osou kedo
Sore mo suteki na tabi ne
Dore mo suteki na tabi ne

Nobody knows who I really am
I never felt this empty before
And if I ever need someone to come along
Who's gonna comfort me and keep me strong

We are all rowing the boat of fate
The waves keep on comin' and we can't escape
But if we ever get lost on our way
The waves would guide you thru another day

Taking deep breathes
As if I were transparent
I thought I was in the dark, but
I was only blindfolded

Offer a prayer
A new day is waiting
Til the ends
Of a vividly shining sea

Nobody knows who I really am
Maybe they just don't give a damn
But if I ever need someone to come along
I know you would follow me, and keep me strong

People's hearts change
And you'll stop wanting to slip away
The moon is in a new cycle
So bring the boat along

And every time I see your face,
The oceans heave up to my heart
You make me wanna strain at the oars,
And soon I can see the shore

Oh, I can see the shore
When will I.... can see the shore?

I want you to know who I really am
I never thought I'd feel this way towards you
And if you ever need someone to come along
I will follow you, and keep you strong

The journey still goes on
Even on quiet days
The moon is in a new cycle
Illuminating the boat

Offer a prayer
A new day is waiting
Til the ends
Of a vividly shining sea

And every time I see your face,
The oceans heave up to my heart
You make me wanna strain at the oars,
And soon I can see the shore

Row the boat of destiny
And even though
Wave after wave attacks us
This is a wonderful journey
They're all wonderful journies
