The things you said, though beautiful, Merryl and I are not dating huh ! XD lol
Merryl know how to speak japanese then she really understand what she sings and she's just doing just great at interpreting these lyrics.
I am not fluent in japanese but I love Utada so much I could translate all of her songs. But only her songs! Lol then, because yes, we had our both interpretations in common, we came up with a little breathtaking story about a woman who just had her baby but her husband died before he could see the baby. Basically, right after the "sakura nagashi"s. And we sang on this plot! Lol I really like your comments on covers, they are really rich in terms of content! :)

Both of you guys covered Sakura Nagashi really nicely! I liked not only the contrast of the English/Japanese, but also the contrast you hear between you guys singing solo and having two people taking turns singing the verse and chorus. I feel like gabepgh, your cover is more close to how I interpreted Utada singing in Japanese (ironic, yes) about life, rebirth and the sentimental nature of what the sakura symbolizes to the Japanese- that you're a mere moment in time and that all things will come to an end and only then, with that realization of just how frail life is can you fully grasp and appreciate the beauty of living, living in the moment.

Whereas, Elijah I interpreted your cover with Merrial as a love song (not because y'all are a boy & a girl), but the tone of your guys singing itself felt like it was moving forward? I don't know how really to describe it, but almost like the lyrics were talking about an end to or a death in a relationship and there was still a lot of things you wanted to convey to the other person while you were kind of caught off guard. It might have been easier to not have ever met in the first place because you're enduring so much pain, but you won't stray from loving again because the pain also is a reminder of how much you loved in the first place.

I made a male cover of the song Sakura Nagashi from the beloved Utada Hikaru. I followed the translation she wrote so hopefully I would capture the same feeling she sang about.

Here is the link: https://soundcloud.com/gabepgh/sakura-nagashi-cover

Here are the lyrics:

“Too early this year”
You said to me
As the sky turned from gray

To another shade
Of pale blue
And I did not know then that
Time would take you away from me
That this was goodbye

And the flowers bloomed then they
Fell again in this broken sky
At times I think of you,
And it’s hard to let you go
And then I hear your voice
In the child that shares your soul

Everybody finds love
Everybody finds love
In the end
In the end

And in his cry, I heard your voice
Louder now than before
And in his sleep I saw your face
Protecting me

If you could see me now, you would see how much we have grown
And when he smiles I, feel the warmth that lets me know

Everybody finds love
In the end

I never thought it’d happen to me
Without you here, I found I could be
What you saw in me
I could not believe
And though you are gone, I find we’re happy

And in the end
It’s destiny
It can’t be- that I’ll never
See you again

I haven’t said anything that could keep you
Here with me
Here in my arms

I could not contain it
There are still times that I think of you
But the time has come
