My personal opinion about the song is that… it’s sounds old, even though it was released (so… probably made) in 2009. And it doesn’t get to me immediately. Thank God I decide to wait because the middle part is really refreshing… those odd tunes…

I’d like to present this lyric post especially for my new online friend, Doni, who exposed me to more DEEN’s songs. I am really grateful for it. Since you like this song, I tried to romanize it. And finally, I finished it. I hope this post is helpful for you. Let’s sing! 🙂

思い出の海へ サヨナラ言いに来たんだ見慣れた景色と潮の香り流れる Omoide no umi e SAYONARA ii ni kita n da
Minareta keshiki to shio no kaori nagareru
隣で笑う声が 聞こえた気がした
彷徨う心は雲のように ただ浮かぶよ
Tonari de warau koe ga kikoeta ki ga shita
Samayou kokoro wa kumo no youni tada ukabu yo
涙のメロディー 波の音は切なき調べ歌う
夏の夜空の刹那に咲いた花 遠い夢だけど
君去りし夏よ もう一度だけ もう一度だけ
メロディー
Namida no melody (MERODII) nami no oto wa setsunaki shirabe utau
Natsu no yozora no  setsuna ni saita hana tooi yume dakedo
Kimi sarishi natsu yo Mouichido dake Mouichido dake
Melody (MERODII)
人混みで前に進めない帰り道も
雨に濡れながら 幸せを感じてた
Hitogomi de mae ni susume nai kaerimichi mo
Ame ni nure nagara shiawase wo kanjiteta
何が僕らに足りなかったのだろう
君への想いは確かなものだったよ
Nani ga bokura ni tarinakatta no darou
Kimi e no omoi wa tashikana mono datta yo
涙のメロディー 風の匂い 今もあの日のまま
寄せては返す波よ まだ少しここにいたいんだ
君去りし夏よ もう一度だけ もう一度だけ
メロディー
Namida no melody (MERODII) kaze no nioi ima mo ano hi no mama
Yosete wa kaesu nami yo mada sukoshi koko ni itai n da
Kimi sarishi natsu yo Mouichido dake Mouichido dake
Melody (MERODII)
君がほら 僕にくれたもの
この海のように広く温かい心
ずっと ずっと 忘れない
Kimi ga hora boku ni kureta mono
Kono umi no youni hiroku atatakai kokoro
Zutto zutto wasurenai
涙のメロディー 波の音は切なき調べ歌う
夏の夜空の刹那に散った花 胸で輝いて
君去りし夏よ もう一度だけ もう一度だけ
メロディー
Namida no melody (MERODII) nami no oto wa setsunaki shirabe utau
Natsu no yozora no setsuna ni chitta hana mune de kagayaite
Kimi sarishi natsu yo Mouichido dake Mouichido dake
Melody (MERODII)

Notes:

It’s quite easy but I still have some mistakes. Why it seems like I cannot be part with ‘mistakes’?

  1. This character: [雲], I transliterated it as ‘kuro’. It’s actually ‘kumo’. And after found it out, I felt like there’s a time I transliterated it ‘kumo’ as well… Odd. I need to enhance my kanji reading again.
  2. [切なき調べ], I heard it as ‘setsuna kirabe / shirabe’. Then I found out that it was ‘setsunaki shirabe’. The ‘ki’ sound is being cut that I almost can’t hear it.
  3. [濡れ], I transliterated it as ‘yure’. And I thought it was okay until I cross-checked with Jisho that it should be ‘nure’. Ugh.
