I thought about my 2009.  Found myself thinking about things that make me happy and things that I tend to look for.  I watched a bit of Inuyasha, and ended up looking up my favorite Inuyasha songs.  Not only do these songs sounds good for me, the lyrics are also touching.

Title: My Will
Artist: Dream

Original / Romaji Lyrics English Translation
sotto mezameru  
hakanai omoi zutto  
donna toki demo negau yo  
anata ni todoku you ni to...
Quietly awakening...  
I always, always wish  
that these fleeting thoughts  
would reach you...
"ato sukoshi" to yuu kyori ga fumidasenakute  
itsumo me no mae wa tozasarete-ita no  
aitai aenai hibi wo kasaneru tabi ni  
tsuyoi tokimeki wa setsunasa ni naru yo
Unable to move forward across "just a little more" distance  
The way I see before me is always blocked  
Every time the days I want to see you but can't pile up,  
My strong heartbeat turns into heartbreak.
moshimo eien to yuu mono ga aru nara  
toomawari shite demo shinjite mitai  
"bukiyou dakara KIZUtsuku koto mo aru" to
wakatte mo tomaranai mou dare ni mo makenai
If there is such a thing as "eternity,"  
I want to believe, even if I have to take the long way.  
Although I know that I've been hurt before because I'm clumsy  
I won't stop; I won't give in to anyone.
anata no koto wo omou  
sore dake de namida ga  
ima afuredashite kuru yo  
hakanai omoi zutto  
donna toki demo negau yo  
anata ni todoku you ni to...
I think of you  
and that alone is enough  
to make the tears start to flow now  
I always, always wish  
that these fleeting thoughts  
would reach you...
tsuyogaru koto dake shiri-sugite-ita watashi  
dakedo ano toki kara mayoi wa kieta yo
I've known all too well about pretending to be strong.  
But since then, my doubts have vanished.
misetai to omou mono ga kitto atte  
kikasetai kotoba mo takusan aru  
egao nakigao mo zenbu mite hoshikute  
matte-iru watashi wa yamete  
"CHANSU" wo tsukamu yo
There's definitely things I want to show you  
And so many words I want to hear  
I want to see all sides of you, when you laugh and cry  
So I'll stop waiting  
and seize my "chance."
anata no koto wo omou  
sore dake de kokoro ga  
tsuyoku nareru ki ga suru yo  
hakanai omoi zutto  
donna toki demo negau yo  
anata ni todoku you ni to...
I think of you,  
and I feel like that alone is enough  
to make my heart grow stronger.  
I always, always wish  
that these fleeting thoughts  
would reach you...
anata no koto wo omou  
sore dake de namida ga  
ima afuredashite kuru yo  
tookute koe ga todokanai dakedo itsuka wa  
kanarazu todoku you ni  
shinjite la la la la la la...  
shinjite la la la la la la...  
shinjite la la la la la la...
I think of you  
and that alone is enough  
to make the tears start to flow now  
My distant voice can't reach you now, but so that someday  
it definitely will...  
Believe. la la la la la la...  
Believe. la la la la la la...  
Believe. la la la la la la...


Title: Fukai Mori
Artist: Do As Infinity

Original / Romaji Lyrics English Translation
fukai fukai mori no oku ni    ima mo kitto  
okizari ni shita kokoro    kakushite'ru yo
I'm sure that the heart I left behind  
still lies hidden in the heart of the deep, deep forest.
sagasu hodo no chikara mo naku    tsukarehateta  
hitobito wa eien no    yami ni kieru
Exhausted, without the strength to search  
people vanish into the infinite darkness.
chisai mama nara    kitto    ima demo mieta ka na
If it's so small, I wonder if I can see it even now?
* boku-tachi wa    ikiru hodo ni  
     nakushite'ku    sukoshi zutsu
     itsuwari ya    uso wo matoi
     tachisukumu    koe mo naku
* As we live on,  
  we lose a little bit more.
  Shrouded in falsehoods and lies,
  we stand frozen to the spot, unable to cry out
aoi aoi sora no iro mo    kidzukanai mama  
sugite yuku mainichi ga    kawatte yuku
The days pass by and change,  
without us even realizing how blue the sky really is.
tsukurareta wakugumi wo koe    ima wo ikite  
sabitsuita    kokoro mata ugokidasu yo
Overcoming that made-up scheme, we live the present,  
and our rusted hearts begin to beat again!
toki no RIZUMU wo shireba   mo ichido toberu darou
If we can find the rhythm of time, we can fly once again
boku-tachi wa    samayoi nagara  
ikite yuku    doko made mo  
shinjite'ru    hikari motome  
arukidasu    kimi to ima
We live our lives  
wandering to the ends of the earth.  
Believing (in you?), now I begin my journey with you,  
in search of the light.
* Repeat
* Repeat
boku-tachi wa    samayoi nagara  
ikite yuku    doko made mo  
furikaeru  
michi wo tozashi  
aruite'ku    eien ni
We live our lives  
wandering to the ends of the earth.  
Closing off  
the way back,  
we walk on for eternity.
tachisukumu koe mo naku  
ikite yuku    eien ni
We live our lives standing frozen to the spot,  
unable to cry out, for eternity...


Title: No more words
Artist: Hamasaki Ayumi

Original / Romaji Lyrics English Translation
Kitto kitto bokutachi wa  
ikiru hodo ni shitteyuku  
soshite soshite bokutachi wa  
ikiru hodo ni wasureteku
probably, probably we  
learn as we live  
and then we  
forget as we live
Hajimari ga aru mono ni wa  
Itsu no hi ka owari mo aru koto  
Iki toshi ikeru mono nara  
Sono subete ni
things with a beginning  
will end someday  
if you can go to the next  
putting everything
Moshimo kono sekai ga shousha to haisha to no  
Futatsu kiri ni wakareru nara  
Aa boku wa haisha de ii  
Itsu datte haisha de itai n da
if this world, the winners and losers  
if it will split into two  
I want to be the loser  
I want to be a loser always
Kitto kitto bokutachi wa  
Kanashii hodo ni utsukushiku  
Yue ni yue ni bokutachi wa  
Kanashii hodo ni kegareteku
probably, probably we  
are beautiful so much, we are sad  
as time passes, we  
get contaminated so much, we are sad
Mamoru beki mono no tame ni  
Kyou mo mata nanika o gisei ni  
Iki toshi ikeru mono no tachi  
Sono subete ga
for the things that must be protected  
I sacrifice something again today  
those going to the next  
all of that
Moshimo kono sekai ga shousha to haisha to no  
Futatsu kiri ni wakareru nara  
Aa boku wa haisha de ii  
Itsu datte haisha de itai n da
if this world, the winners and losers  
if it will split into two  
I want to be the loser  
I want to be a loser always
Boku wa kimi ni nani o tsutaerareru darou  
Konna chippoke de chisana boku de shika nai  
Ima wa kore ijou hanasu no wa yametoku yo  
Kotoba wa sou amari ni mo  
Toki ni muryoku dakara
what can I tell you?  
only being such a small self  
I won't tell you more now  
because the words are so  
weak against time
