I.

(Kanji

anata no yume o miteta ( I saw you in my dream)

2.しそうな

sabishisou na namida o mita(I saw your sad-looking tears

3.いつのにか あたしはあなたになり

4.してる

onaji namida o nagashiteru (to cry the same tears)

Breakdown of newly learned Kanji

1.夢—-yume (dream)

2.しそう—sabishisou (sad looking)

3.な涙—namida (tear)

4.いつの間—itsunomanika (without me knowing, uncounciously)

5.じ —onaji (same)

6.してる—nagashiteru (flow,current)

Ye’y I never thought studying Kanji would be this enjoyable. I’ll be posting the breakdown of the second stanza too. By the way this song is the Ending Song of Ultra Maniac, a fantasy/love anime that I watched in a cable channel. Studying this song makes me to miss the anime. I fell in love with the story. It’s one of those “teen romanticism” anime that is really worth to watch.

If you’re interested to listen, here’s the music video. Though you may not understand the lyrics, the piano score and the emotional tune is very awesome. I know you’ll be feeling what the song wants to say.
