Recording of
Recording of "Kimi wa Hana wa Boku wa Kaze" written by Shuhei Umehara at Kyoto Ekimae Satellite Concert Hall, Kyoto Institute of Information Science, on December 21, 2014.

U-Choir, a chorus circle of Kyoto Computer Gakuin (KCG Group), recently uploaded a video recording of the song "You are the Flower, I am the Wind (Chinese song title: 你是花儿我是风)" written by Shuhei Umehara in Japanese and Chinese and distributed worldwide on an Internet video site.This song is a new song by Umehara, a singer-songwriter known for "Origami Crane," and was written for U-Choir's premiere and distribution project with the hope of further deepening the friendship between Japanese students and Chinese and other foreign students, as well as Chinese people, including those who have returned to their home countries after completing their studies in Japan.The Chinese lyrics were translated into Chinese by a foreign student at TUFS based on Mr. Umehara's Japanese lyrics.

Both the Japanese and Chinese versions were uploaded to YouTube and Youku, a popular video site in China (URL below).The subtitle of "You are the flower, I am the wind" is "If you let your talent blossom, I will be the wind that carries the seeds of the flower." The lyrics include such messages as "History has never given up," "You, be the bridge that connects the world," and "Love, reach beyond words to the world" in the hope of a world without conflict.

The recording on December 21 last year was fully supported by the KCG Parents Association, and in addition to the U-Choir, about 100 people including parents, students including international students, faculty members, and general choirs gathered to sing together under the direction and guidance of advisor Yohei Yoshimura.

lyrics
Japanese
You are the flower, I am the wind.

Is there no love so big, so great, that it could encompass the entire planet?
Can't you have a dream big enough to fill the whole world with smiles?
You, be a pioneer of the times You, be a bridge connecting the world
You, speak of tomorrow with certainty in your eyes. You, engrave your name in history.
For example, if you're a flower, I'm the dirt.
For example, if I were the wind, you would be the sky.

Every drop of sweat, every tear of frustration, is the power to open up the future.
History always opens a door with one person's wish that never gave up.
Love, beyond words, reach the world, dreams, beyond tears, unite our hearts.
It's just one planet, one water planet, and we're all one family.
For example, if you're a flower, I'm the dirt.
For example, if I were the wind, you would be the sky.

You, be a pioneer of the times You, be a bridge connecting the world
You, speak of tomorrow with certainty in your eyes. You, engrave your name in history.
For example, if you're a flower, I'm the dirt.
For example, if I were the wind, you would be the sky.

For example, if you're a flower, I'm the dirt.
For example, if I were the wind, you would be the sky.

Chinese
You are the flower, I am the wind.

Our earth is pregnant with life and it is shaking with love and affection
The same dream in my heart Random world
You created the time period, you are the first to lead the way, you are the link to the world, you are the bridge between the world and the bridge of ideas
You are the one who grasps my name and inscribes it on the long millstones of my history.
I am the land 紧紧把你捧在手心
The wind is blowing like a 阵阵now that you are in the sky and flying freely in your mind

The sweat that drips from my eyes, the tears in my eyes, all of it is the future that I will open up, the power that I will have.
From the history of goodness to the fact that a person with a small mind opens the gate of hope
Love is a language that transcends the world as well as a dream that wins people's hearts.
A blue star ball in a blue-starred planet, our unique home, where we were born and will forever be one family.
I am the land 紧紧把你捧在手心
The wind is blowing like a 阵阵now that you are in the sky and flying freely in your mind

You are the first to create a new era and to lead the way
The world is your link to the bridge
This is you 仿佛用坚定的双眼诉说美好的明天
You engrave your name on the long millstones of history
I am the land 紧紧把你捧在手心
The wind is blowing like a 阵阵now that you are in the sky and flying freely in your mind
