Sunday 80’s J-POP (Japanese Pops) – This Is All I Have For You by Makoto Matsushita

This is all I have for you

The Sunday J-pop time again! This week for me was a musical week. I love music, particularly I love funky Jazzy song. Today song matches to my preference perfectly. From 1981, the song called “This is all I have for you”.

I have been struggling to find a video which allows me to post here. But most of his songs are not permitted due to the copy right I think. However luckily for me I only found this MP3 video. The quality is poor but I am sure you will be able to feel is a base beat and funky sounds.

Makoto Matsushita ; Real Name: 松下誠 ; Profile: Japanese multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, lyricist and vocalist. Born November 16, 1955. He is still active and have a youtube official account and have posted many songs. Please check them out if you are interested in.

This Is All I Have for You

Song by Makoto Matsushita

Lyrics

Slipping through the flowing waves of people
流れてゆく人波すりぬけ

Looking down on the city from the room I escaped from
逃げもどった部屋から見下ろす街

Neon light swirling in the sky
とばりの中渦を巻くNeon Light

wake up sleepy
眠気をさます

Forget the repeating days
繰り返しの毎日忘れて

Dancing Saturday night
踊るようにむかえる土曜の夜

Men wandering around drinking cheap alcohol
安い酒あびてさまよう男達

steal souls from opponents
相手にして魂を奪う

keep waiting here for you
おまえをここで待ち続ける

This is all I have for you
This is all I have for you

This is all I need from you
This is all I need from you

If you wake up in a midnight dream
真夜中の夢に目を醒ませば

Your shadow approaching under the window
窓の下に近付くおまえの影

Candle Light with a smile without words
言葉もなく微笑に Candle Light

light quietly
静かにともる

To the joke that starts when you open the door
ドアを開けて始まるジョークに

Never-ending Saturday night
終わる事を知らない土曜の夜

long hair on thin fingertips
細い指先にまつわる長い髪

I turn away and ask for love
ふりほどいて愛を求めてくる

hot tears in your eyes
おまえの目に熱い涙

This is all I have for you
This is all I have for you

This is all I need from you
This is all I need from you

always so
いつでもそう

cherish just now
今だけ大切にして

live on
生きてゆく

This is all I have for you
This is all I have for you

This is all I have for you
This is all I have for you
