Ketika membaca lirik lagu ini di salah satu profile teman saya di FB, teringat kembali ketika lagu ini dijadikan salah satu sarana belajar bahasa Jepang dulu. Ngedengerin lagu, ditulis (hiragana+kanji), diulang berkali2. Penyanyinya SMAP, salah satu boyband paling terkenal di Jepang.

Hasilnya, sampai skrg masih inget liriknya =). Lagu ini juga punya kenangan tersendiri dan salah satu lagu favorit saya.

Sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana
(One unique flower in the world)

I looked into flowers standing on the shop.
We all have our favorites,
but one thing for sure,
they are all beautiful
Without fighting to each other which one is the most beautiful,
they are standing proud in the buckets.

But, why we human always like to compare?
Why do we always wanting to be the no.1
even we are different?
We all are unique flowers
with different seeds of each.
We just need to do our best to bloom it.

Small flowers, big flowers
We’ll never find the same
Don’t have to be no.1
’Coz you are the only one.
