NOTES
This song was used as a theme to the movie "Okuribito", in 2008. The music was composed by famous movie music composer Hisaishi Joe. As for the translation of the title, I tried to compact it a bit since it is a song title. However, a more literal translation would be "a person who sees people off". By "seeing off" I mean seeing someone off on a journey, seeing people come and go out of their lives all of the time, that sort of thing.

As I grasp a hold of
A small fragment
They endure. That's what people do.
Yet they overflow
The tears spill yet again

I want to have a smile on my face
Right around the time when I see you off

Love pierces the heart
More so than any knife
And then saying "Let's meet again some day"...

When I look up to the sky
The clouds and shooting stars
Shine quietly
They reflect in my eyes
I wonder if you're looking at them too...?

Love pierces the heart
More so than any knife
And then saying "Let's meet again some day"...

Sometimes getting hurt
Loving, being loved
Meetings and partings
When they repeat themselves
I'll definitely think of you again...
