one
Sung by: V6 feat. Shoo(S.E.S.)
Japanese Version Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)
English Version by: Donna Burke
Version 1.00

Note: This song has such a story behind it, I hardly know where to start. It was the B-side to V6's Feel Your Breeze single, but it was also released as a single in Korea. From what I've heard, it was the first Japanese single to ever be officially released in Korea, too. The song is a "duet" between V6 and Shoo from the Korean girl pop trio, S.E.S. This was also the theme song to the 2002 musical Toua Hiren starring Shoo and Inocchi in a story about a Korean girl who falls in love with a Japanese guy. Because of the international background, one was recorded as Japanese, Korean, and (for some reason) English versions. The song is absolutely beautiful, and quickly became one of my favorites. Plus, if you learn the Japanese version, you can sing Shoo's part of V6 in concert. (@_@) Literally one of the sweetest things I've ever seen.


Japanese Version

mitsumeteru hitomi no saki ni
hatenaku tsuzuku     futashika na mirai
surinuketeyuku     kisetsu no naka de ima
kotae o sagashiteiru yo     Day by day

Before the gaze of my eyes
It continues endlessly     our uncertain future
Slipping through     right now in the season
I'm searching for the answer     Day by day


kono te no naka ni     kanjiteru nukumori
We can be together     tashikameta nara

In between our two hands     you can feel the warmth
We can be together     if you want to try


koko kara hajimaru     atarashii sutoorii
We can be the one     aruiteyukou
donna mirai mo     tsuyoku dakishimeru yo
mou mayowanai     ai dake o shinjite

It's starting up now     our new story
We can be the one     let's walk on
No matter what the future brings     I'll hold you tight
We're not lost any more     we only believe in love


kanashimi no kanata ni hitori
utsumuita mama     naita koto mo aru
dareka no tame ni nagashita namida nara
kie wa shinai yo zutto     Life goes on

All alone on the edge of sadness
There've been times     when I've hung my head and cried
If your tears flow for someone else
They'll never disappear, ever     Life goes on


donna toki ni mo     wasurenai de hoshii
We can be forever     soba ni iru koto

No matter when     I want you to not forget
We can be forever     close to each other


dokomade mo tsuzuku     ano oozora no you ni
We can be the one     ikiteyuketara
namida o fuite     mou furikaeranai
sono kokoro ni     ai ga hohoemu nara

Continuing on forever     like the heavens above
We can be the one     if we're living on
Wipe up your tears     don't turn away again
For in your heart     love is smiling


kono yo ni umareta imi o     shiritakute
itami ya mujun no naka de     daremo ga
shiawase no katachi o     inoru you ni mitsumeteiru
sou     negatteiru

I want to know     why I was born on this earth
In pain and contradictions     someone is
It's like they're praying     searching for happiness
Yes     I'm wishing


koko kara hajimaru     atarashii sutoorii
We can be the one     aruiteyukou
donna mirai mo     tsuyoku dakishimeru yo
mou mayowanai     ai dake o shinjite

It's starting up now     our new story
We can be the one     let's walk on
No matter what the future brings     I'll hold you tight
We're not lost any more     we only believe in love

English Version

Never knowing what the future just might hold
Through the seasons of our life, we're just hoping for what's right
When we're standing side by side I feel the warmth of our love
Our days will now be sunny from now on Day by Day

Every day a brand new chance
We can feel it's only just begun
We can be together
If only we believe

So nothing's gonna stop us now
Together we can touch the sun
We can be the one if we can just hold tight
Holding hands we face the world
We're fearing nothing anymore
Knowing you're beside me
Will always make us strong today

In the deepest night so many tears will fall
From the silence of the heart, will come a lonely sigh
But we can't forget the dawn will always break tomorrow
If we just can hold on now and wait Life goes on

Every day a brand new chance
We can feel it's only just begun
We can be forever
If only we believe

And like an eagle up above
We're soaring high and feeling proud
We can be the one if we can just believe
Wipe your tears and don't look back
Just smile again and feel the love
Knowing you're beside me
Will always make us strong today (today)

Should we know why we are born to this earth (yes I need to know)
Seek the truth, we find the love everyday
Come to me now, come and show me what is right today
If we can find it then we can pass it on
For everybody

So nothing's gonna stop us now
Together we can touch the sun
We can be the one if we can just hold tight
Holding hands we face the world
We're fearing nothing anymore
Knowing you're beside me
Will always make us strong today
