Sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana

Of all the songs that I love, Nothing touches me as much as this song.
The songwriter is the same person who wrote the Mou Koi Nante shinai nante, and he wrote this song for SMAP-sama. I know their voices ain’t the “saikou” but it is a great song. I’ll just give you the KAT-TUN version, since I love them (When I still love Jin sooo much, when he isn;t so emo-Americanized )

And this is NEWS version. 2004. Tegoshi’s voice… is so good.

These are the lyrics by Megchan

Hanaya no misesaki ni naranda
Ironna hana wo mite ita
Hito sorezore konomi wa aru kedo
Doremo minna kirei da ne
Kono naka de dare ga ichiban da nante
Arasou koto mo shinaide
Baketsy no naka hokorashige ni
Shanto mune wo hatte iru

Sore na no ni bokura ningen wa
Dousjite kou mo kurabetagaru?
Hitori hitori chigau no ni sono naka de
Ichiban ni naritagaru?

Sou sa bokura wa
Sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana
Hitori hitori chigau tane wo motsu
Sono hana wo sakaseru koto dake ni
Isshoukenmei ni nareba ii

Komatta you ni warainagara
Zutto mayotteru hito ga iru
Ganbatte saita hana wa doremo
Kirei dakara shikata nai ne
Yatto mise kara dete kita
Sono hito ga kakaete ita
Irotoridori no hanataba to
Ureshisou na yokogao

Namae mo shiranakatta keredo
Ano hi boku ni egao wo kureta
Daremo ki zukanai you na basho de
Saiteta hana no you ni

Sou sa bokura wa
Sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana
Hitori hitori chigau tane wo motsu
Sono hana wo sakaseru koto dake ni
Isshoukenmei ni nareba ii

Chiisai hana ya ookina hana
Hitotsu toshite onaji mono wa nai kara
Number one ni naranakutemo ii
Motomoto tokubetsu na only one

Translations from Kiwi Musume

I looked at all kinds of flowers
Lined up in front of the flower shop
Each person prefers a different type
But they’re all beautiful
None of them fight
Over who’s the best
They just stand up tall and proud
In their buckets

So how come we people
Want to compare ourselves like this?
Why do we want to be the best
When everybody’s different?

Yes, each of us is
A flower there’s only one of in the whole world
Each of us has their own seeds
So let’s just do our best
To make them grow into flowers

There are people whose smiles are strained
Because they’re completely lost
But it doesn’t matter
Because every flower that’s worked so hard to grow is beautiful
Eventually someone came
Out of the flower shop
Carrying a bunch of flowers in all different colours
His face looked so happy

I didn’t know his name
But he gave me a smile
Like a flower that had bloomed
In a place nobody had noticed

Yes, each of us is
A flower there’s only one of in the whole world
Each of us has their own seeds
So let’s just do our best
To make them grow into flowers

Little flowers and big flowers
Not one is the same as another
You don’t need to be number one
You’re special, the only one of you, to begin with

Of course. You know from young until now, People keep on comparing you, pushing you down when you do not fit the expectation of the society. Flowers are referring to us humans who always need to follow to be the same as others, but actually, we can be different and be appreciate by others too! We need to accept others too, and people will accept us as well. This song sure made me cry every single time i sing it. I can never finish the song without crying. It is just so touching.
