Ryoko Shintani – Wonderful World

Ryoko Shintani, Wonderful World

A slightly older song, by request.

I listened to this and recognized the guitarist before I even looked at the credits. I managed to find some booklet scans for the album, and it turns out that the entire instrumentation is credited to a unit called the Pink Bambi Band – Masanori Takumi (drums / piano), Takafumi Oota (guitars), R・O・N (guitars / piano), and Hiromitsu Kawashima (bass).

Wonderful World
words, music & arrange: R・O・N
vocals: Ryoko Shintani

What can I do to help you?
The world of my fantasy was overflowing with love.

The thing that I truly needed back then
Remains within my heart even now.

The scattered noise begins to pour out.
Somewhere in this city,
Happiness is falling from the sky.
We find it little by little, share it,
And in that way, we live on
Through every day.

That’s how we live, hand in hand.

I say hello, good bye,
Watchwords that anyone can see.
I know this is everlasting,
With endings and beginnings connected –
It’s a wonderful world

Like an arrow, the days go by.
Some way to stop time so you never get left behind –
No, that’s something that no one has,
So cherish the present time.

say yes – it’s right there in front of you,
say no – but you can’t see emotion.
that’s just the way it is,
I know.

If you’ve felt pain from the afterimages
Created by your noisy heart,
Find the courage to get past them.
I link my hand with yours and we help each other,
And in that way, the two of us
Live on.

Now, moving hand in hand,
Let’s go… Transform everything into joy!

I say hello, good bye,
Watchwords that anyone can see.
I know this is everlasting,
With endings and beginnings connected –
It’s a wonderful world

Dissolve me into this one moment of this revolving earth.
“May you find happiness,” I wish again, today.

I say hello, good bye,
Watchwords that anyone can see.
I know this is everlasting,
With endings and beginnings connected –
It’s a wonderful world

Wonderful World

Kimi no tame ni nani ga dekiru no?
Kuusou shita sekai wa ai de afureta

Ano toki hontou ni hitsuyou datta mono wa
Ima demo kokoro no naka ni nokotte iru nda

Baratsuita noizu ga afuredasu
Konna machi no dokoka ni wa
Shiawase ga maiorite ite
Sukoshi zutsu mitsukete wakeatte
Sonna fuu ni mainichi wo
Ikite iku nda

Te to te wo toriatte sa

I say hello good bye
Dare ni demo mieru aikotoba
Kitto everlasting
Owari to hajimari tsunagatte
It’s a wonderful world

Ya no you ni sugiru hibi
Oite ikarenai you ni jikan wo tomeru sube
Dare mo sonna mono wa mochiawasete inai
Dakara ima wo daiji ni

say yes kimi no me no mae de
say no mienai kanjou
it’s so honshitsu nandeshou
Shitteru

Zawatsuita kokoro ga tsukuridasu
Zanzou kurushimeta no nara
Nukedaseru yuuki wo motte
Kimi to te tsunaide tasukeatte
Sonna fuu ni bokutachi wa
Ikite iku nda

Te to te wo toriatte sa
Ikou yo subete yorokobi ni kae

I say hello good bye
Dare ni demo mieru aikotoba
Kitto everlasting
Owari to hajimari tsunagatte
It’s a wonderful world

Mawaru sekai no isshun ni boku wo tokashite yo
Kyou mo kimi yo shiawase de are to negau nda

I say hello good bye
Dare ni demo mieru aikotoba
Kitto everlasting
Owari to hajimari tsunagatte
It’s a wonderful world

Wonderful World
作詞・作曲・編曲:R・O・N
歌:新谷良子

君のために何ができるの?
空想した世界は愛で溢れた

あの時本当に必要だったものは
今でも心の中に残っているんだ

バラついたノイズが溢れ出す
こんな街のどこかには
幸せが舞い降りていて
少しずつ見つけて分け合って
そんな風に毎日を
生きていくんだ

手と手を取り合ってさ

I say hello good bye
誰にでもみえる合言葉
きっとeverlasting
終わりと始まり繋がって
It’s a wonderful world

矢のように過ぎる日々
置いていかれないように時間を止める術
誰もそんなものは持ち合わせていない
だから今を大事に

say yes 君の目の前で
say no 見えない感情
it’s so 本質なんでしょう
知ってる

ざわついた心が作り出す
残像苦しめたのなら
抜け出せる勇気を持って
君と手つないで助け合って
そんな風に僕達は
生きていくんだ

手と手を取り合ってさ
いこうよ全て喜びに変え

I say hello good bye
誰にでもみえる合言葉
きっとeverlasting
終わりと始まり繋がって
It’s a wonderful world

廻る世界の一瞬に僕を溶かしてよ
今日も君よ幸せであれと願うんだ

I say hello good bye
誰にでもみえる合言葉
きっとeverlasting
終わりと始まり繋がって
It’s a wonderful world
