I got a lot of requests for more songs from the movie "Your Name," so today I present

the English version of "Sparkle"! This song didn't feel right without the beautiful piano melody in the background, so rather than just playing guitar like usual, I decided to add the piano electronically (since I can't actually play piano...).

I hope you enjoy the English cover :)

Caught in a never-ending game
Seems like the world is still trying to tame me
But I go on my chosen way
Beautifully struggling everyday

With both of our hourglasses low
I want to kiss you ‘til the sand’s finishing flowing
Come on, let’s make a plan to meet somewhere that’s
As far from “goodbye” as we can go

Oh, how I hated that lifeless world
Made up of entirely of dictionary words that
I saw through my kaleidoscope
On a monotonous August morn

When you appeared in front of me
You acted shy at times, and others you’d be cool
Smiling a textbook smile at me
To mask your pain so perfectly

Finally now the time has tolled
Everything up ‘til yesterday was a prologue
You can just skim through the days of old
It’s my turn to bear the load

With my experience and skill
And all the courage I had let start to mildew
At an unprecedented speed I will
Dive after you into waters unstill

And when I dozed off into a lukewarm can of soda I
Dreamed of a world so far from here, a different time
Waiting outside of the classroom window
One summer morning aboard a train that swayed me to and fro

Oh, in the way that you loved
I swear I could smell that scent of yours
And in the way that you walked
I could hear that bright laughter of yours

And I know that one day you’ll disappear
So I’ll keep each part of you
Burned into the back of my eyes so you’re always here
It’s not a right that I’m due
No, darling, it’s my duty to you

We’ll fall in love in a timeless land
Where no matter how far we extend our hands
Words like “tomorrow” or “future” or “fate”
Lie far out of reach for as long as we stay

As we look sideways at the hands of the clock
They’ll look right back at us as they tick and tock
How I hope to have forever to spend
This life, no – all future lives
Right here in this world with you
