Second Love, Second Chance?

After over 20 years, Akina was given a second chance to sing her 1982 hit Second Love in The Best Ten.(She lost her voice the first time due to sickness, unfortunately she mixed up the lyrics at the end when she sang the second time, that's why she was hitting her head with her hand) Do we all get a second chance even if a mistake was made the first time? Ending this year's blogging, I would like to dedicate this song to all of us who deserve a second chance, hope you enjoy her very touching performance as much as I do. Wishing you all:

新年快樂,萬事如意
あけましておめでとうございます
Happy New Year
Bonne Annee



SECOND LOVE
Lyrics by : Etsuko KisugiComposed by : Takako KisugiArranged by : Mitsuo Hagita

As it's my second time in love,
I am a little more skillful
I wish to convey my love message
Holding the sleeve of your sweater
I can only look down
I don't want to go home
I want to stay by your side
Yet I can't said that out loud
Time, please hold me in your arms, please take me along
Please carry me to somewhere
the speed of my pain accelerates
I am at a complete loss

As it's my second time in love,
I am more at ease
I wish to response to your sweet soft nothings
I pretend to be tidying my fringe
and hang my head down
I wish to freeze your shadow, which is cast on the pavement
Time and body, please hold me in your arms
Please scoop me up
I made a cross painfully and bid farewell
I dislike to be pursued
Time, please hold me in your arms, please take me along
Please carry me to somewhere
I am at a complete loss
I am suffering in my monologue heart

Thank you so much. I have never seen this and I love this rendition. Wow!

May I ask where you found all these? I love Akina and be her fan for over 15 years.

Thanks again.
