[japanese version]

忘れないでね 僕と遊んだ日
長い道をどこまでも行ったよね
走り疲れて 転んだときは
君がいつでも力づけてくれた

wasurenai de ne, boku to asonda hi
nagai michi wo doko made mo itta yo ne
hashiri tsukareta koronda toki wa
kimi ga itsu demo chikara dzuketekureta

一緒にいつまでも 走り続けていた
お腹がすいて 帰る事も忘れて
皆でいつまでも遊んでいられると
信じてたあの日にまた帰りたい

issho ni itsu made mo, hashiri tsudzuketeita
onaka ga suite, kaeru koto mo wasurete
minna de itsu made mo asonde irareru to
shinjiteta ano hi ni mata kaeritai

覚えてるかな 君と出会った日
君は一人 つまらなそうにしてた
声をかけると うつむきながら
恥ずかしそうに 笑顔見せてくれた

oboeteru ka na, kimi to deatta hi
kimi wa hitori, tsumarana sou ni shiteta
koe wo kakeru to utsumuki nagara
hazukashi sou ni egao misetekureta

一緒に走り出し 心はずませてた
これから何か 始まる事夢見て
皆でいつまでも遊んでいられると
思ってたあの日に また戻ろうよ

issho ni hashi dashi, kokoro hazumaseteta
kore kara nani ka hajimaru koto yume mite
minna de itsu made mo asonde irareru to
omotteta ano hi ni mata modorou yo

そよ 風 青空 友達
皆の笑顔そのままに心の宝箱にいれて

so yo kaze, ao sora, tomodachi
minna no egao sono mama ni kokoro no takarabako ni irete

僕が今も一人走り続けている
あの頃の夢忘れる事できずに
どこかで出会えたら 同じ笑顔見せて
信じてた明日へまた走ろうよ

boku ga ima mo hitori hashiri tsudzuketeiru
ano koro no yume wasureru koto dekizu ni
doko ka de deaetara, onaji egao misete
shinjiteta ashita e mata hashirou yo

[english version]

do you remember the days when we had long long way to go
and you were there for me, as I was there for you to be around
the sun was shining brightly down on us so gently
that we thought we could go on for as long and as far as we pleased

hands in hands, forever and far more, we would run, we’d never have enough
didn’t even need know if that was time to eat or time to sleep
on and on, the hours tick away so the memories can go astray
how I miss the days of golden sun; and please, i’d rather be with you

i still remember the days when we had long long time to share
that’s when i saw you there, looking as tired as I used to be
“hello”, I said unsurely; you smiled a little shyly
soon we knew we would go on together on a journey to our dreams

hand in hand, forever and far more, we would run, we’d never have enough
didn’t even care to ask how far away from home we’d have to go
on and on, the hours tick away, so the memories can go astray
oh i miss the never-ending road, and sure, i’d rather be with you

sweet summer breeze or autumn leaves
through winter skies and blooming flowers of spring
friends and their laughter, precious and kind
let all shine like diamonds in my heart

all along, i’m here to find the way to the dream we used to have before
and I hope to see again your smiling face along the way somewhere
if you hear me calling out today and you see the meaning of it all
come and join me on this space again; you know, tomorrow will be there

    First of all, I would like to apologize for my bad English. I want to give some sugestions. Its about the song Diamonds in my Heart (Vicky Bell). Its hard for me to learn the songs lyric and chords because it is written separated. I wished that the lyric is written with the chord above it, so I can play it easier. I’m sorry for the complain, but this site is my favourite

    Hi Sintyadi! Thanks for the comment. No worries about your English. 🙂

    Truthfully, I’ve tried that format before, but I found it difficult to format the lyrics and chords in a nice way (I’ll get more technical details later). So, what you can do is to open two windows at a same time for the same page, and put them side by side.

    Now on to the technical details:
    First, I should mention that I don’t have much time doing transcriptions. For a single version of a song, it usually takes me about 1-2 hours to do, including double checking, etc. When I try to layout it in the way you suggested, the extra time needed for me to get all the proper placing becomes 4-5 hours, while doing it like now only takes me 4-5 minutes (only for copy pasting and last minute checks). A possible proposition is to put everything using a monospace font. However, it doesn’t quite look as nice as what you can see now, and it takes much more margin. So that proposal is out of question.

    As a compensation, I shift the lyrics here and there (apologies to the song writers) so they get inline with the chords. Also, I make sure that whoever follows the chord transcriptions can see the length of each chord and, thus, play it rythmically in the same way as the artist does. This part is pretty much gone when I put it in the usual way (usual means the format you suggested).

    Thanks again for visiting my site 🙂

    I’m so sick with your English. I’ve searched for many time but no one write this lyric become the correct.Include this site

    Could you point out where it is wrong? I understand that Vicki Bell doesn’t have the clearest articulation out there, but everything is pretty much as it is.

  5. steven said

    Hmm…
    could you translate the japanese version?
    I want to know the translation,coz my japanese is so bad…

  6. Tat said

    Brilliant job! The chords are pretty accurate, and saves me hours of putting them down so i can play 😛

    Do you have the piano sheet for the english version? I was looking for it over a few years but no result.
