I Love You So
大橋純子 Lyrics


Nigiyakana gekijō zawameku robī
A bustling theater, a noisy lobby

Yokogiru kowashi i kao
Familiar faces pass me by

Tokei ito iriguchi o kōgo ni mite wa
Looking between the clock and the entrance

Dareka o matte iru no ne
Waiting for somebody

Furimuite kigatsuite
Turning around I realize

Imademo, I love you so
Still, I love you so

Mōichido chansu o ataete
Please give me another chance

Kon'ya no konsāto anata ni aeru
I'm meeting you at tonight's concert

Yūkiwodashite kitanoni
Even though I brought along some courage

Suikake no tabako mo hai ni naru dake
I'm just smoking a cigarette, the tobacco turning to ash

Shisen wa anata o ou no
Gazing after you

Furimuite kigatsuite
Turning around I realize

Kii te yo, I need you so
Listen, I need you so

Omokage ga ima mo tsukimatō
You're still on my mind

Kake daseba soto wa ame
If I run out into the rain

Kono mama ja kaerenai. Oh.
It won't be to go home

Kakeyotte dakishimete
I'll run to you and hug you tight

Kii te yo, I need you so
Listen, I need you so

Kokorokara anatagahoshī no
With all my heart, I want you

Furimuite kigatsuite
Turning around I realize

Imademo, I love you so
Still, I love you so

Mōichido chansu o ataete
Please give me another chance

If you like this song, its genre is “City Pop”. City Pop is a genre of music originating in the coffee bars of early 1970s Japan, and comprised of J-pop, Techno, Soul, Disco, Polynesian, Jazz Fusion, Funk and R&B. From 1976 to late 1991, City Pop was the mainstream music genre in Japan. It is basically 70s and 80s J-pop in short, and continues to influence J-pop to this day.

In 1992, the Kawaii movement altered City Pop into cutesier songs, introducing genres like Nightcore and making the sound of J-pop very anime-inspired. But since the 2010s, City Pop has made a large comeback in the Japanese mainstream, and has altered the sound of J-pop once again.

Some great City Pop songs to listen to (after listening to this song) include;

Anri- Lady Sunshine
Anri- Last Summer Whisper
Taeko Onuki- Sunshower (Summer Connection)
Taeko Onuki- 4AM
Cindy- Destiny
Meiko Nakahara- Fantasy
Junko Yagami- Bay City
Mariya Takeuchi- Plastic Love
Junko Ohashi- Telephone Number
Kaoru Akimoto- Dress Down
Casiopea- Midnight Rendezvous (Live 1982)
Tatsuro Yamashita- Funky Flushin’

On this lively stage
In this buzzing lobby
The side of a face I knew long ago
Looking at the time and the entrance
You're waiting for someone

Turning around
Noticing
Even now I love you so
Give me just one more chance

At tonight's concert
I can meet you again
And even though I mustered my courage
There's only ashes left of my cigarette
My eyes still searching for you

Turning around
Noticing
Listen! I love you so
Now our faces meet

I chased you, outside was rain
But I can't go home like this

Running up to you
Holding you close
Listen! I love you so
My heart only wants you

Turning around
Noticing
Even now I love you so
Give me just one more chance

I remember listening to this at a smokey jazz bar in Tokoyo during the summer of 85. I met a girl named Kiki, she was the cutest Japanese girl I've ever met in my life. We hit the town, went to an arcade, ate amazing ramen, and enjoyed the amazing Japanese scenery. She then asked if I wanted to go to her apartment and before I could answer, I woke up.
