たったの一年なのに
(Tattano Ichinen Nanoni)
Dec. 15th, 1993
Words & Music by Tomo


















*
白い雪が街をちらつく頃
今年も終わりだと気がつく
ふと振り返り思い出してみると
どうしてか切なく感じる

愛する人が突然いなくなったり
親しかった友達とも離れていったり

あれからたったの一年なのに
それぞれみんな変わっていくよ

時は流れ時代と共に生き
僕らも大きくなってく
誰もかれも街の風景までも
少し前とは違っているよ

友達はみんな進む道も決まり
ガキだった頃とは生き方も違うよ

あれからたったの一年なのに
まわりは全て動いているよ
自分でも気づかぬ間に
いろんな出来事起こっているよ
どこかの映画のシーンのように
昔の景色が浮かんでくるよ
あれからたったの一年なのに
僕らはみんな変わっていくよ

This song is about thiking back for a past year. The song title "Tattano Ichinen Nanoni" means "It's only been a year, but..." At the end of year, I was looking at the snow outside and thinking back what has happened in a past year. Death of loved one, separation from friends, change of scenery in town, etc. Although, I didn't think I changed much, there have been a lot of things happened.

It's only been a year, yet many things have changed. It reminds me that the time is always ticking and things are always changing.
