The first song I've sung in Japanese. Thanks to my mom for translating it. Some of the pronunciation is wrong, but since I've already made up the melody (which was hard to come up with, surprisingly), I didn't dare to shape around it. Next time, I'll have to think everything through.

(lol, and I just realized "orinatte" was supposed to be "oginatte" OTL )

Lyrics:

Furui ichō no ki no ha ga mata ochite iru.
Kaze to tomoni ha ga maitte kiiro no chi ni sometta.

Sono ne ha fukaku chijho ni shizumi, kaze o oginatte iru.
Furui eda wa sorani maiagari.

Kottō no yōni seiza shi, kizu to nerin ga sennen o katta te iru.
Doka sono hanashi o hanashite.


Furui ichō no ha ga mata umarete.
Kaze no nakade midori no ha ga muon no ongaku o kanaderu.

Kinō no kiiro no ha wa maiagari sora no naka ni kieteiku.
Shinnen no kangei to atarashii rekishi no hajimari.

Kottō no yōni seiza shi, kizu to nerin ga sennen o katta te iru.
Doka sono hanashi o hanashite.

It's basically talking about a ginkgo tree and it's old age (since they can live to be up to 2000 years old, or so I read).

Wow, that is so beautiful!

I was really nervous about today before I heard this. It really calmed e down. :) Thanks a lot.

And even though I only understand bits and pieces of Japanese, I can still sort of understand what it's about...
