Love Somebody- You’re Under Arrest

Love Somebody is the second Opening song for the anime You’re Under Arrest, or in Japanese, Taiho Shichauzo. Some say it’s not the greatest love song in the world; I disagree. I fell in love with the song as soon as I heard it, and when it became the insert song for my favourite couple in the series, Natsumi Tsujimoto and Shoji Tokairin, well, I was hooked. *Insert hearts for eyes here*

Ahem… fangirling aside, unlike most love songs, this song has a strong, vibrant pop feel to it. It’s got a very strong hopeful message that a lot of songs today don’t have. So yes, GRAB THE SONG HERE AND LISTEN TO IT! :D

Lyrics and translations were taken from here. (And yes, you know I’m in love with the song when it’s the ONLY song on my Winamp ON REPEAT) :D

English Translation:

Closing my eyes off everyday won’t get me anywhere.
But at least the feeling can keep me in the moment.
The ideal is far. But reality is near.
Although the wind is strong, I still smile to myself.
Hug me tightly, and for sure, I will become strong.

Faithfully, I Love Somebody. One day,
I’ll find what I’m looking for. I’ll Take My Chance.
In this world, I will even stop time, to become his angel.
Faithfully, I Love Somebody. I certainly will meet,
That irreplacable person.
I can’t stop this passion. Tomorrow will fly here soon.

In this dream I see alone, I look toward two people.
I can guess who they probably are. What a lovely vision.
It’s puzzling though. Even though we don’t spend any lesiure time,
I’m still happy all the time.
I’ll never lose my way.
Firmly looking ahead, I hold myself together.

Faithfully, I Love Somebody. One day,
I believe I’ll Get My Chance.
The fated bell will toll, and the gates will open.
Faithfully, I Love Somebody. The fateful encounter,
With that person, I’ll continue seeking it.
The sun starts shining, as miracles don’t lie.

Faithfully, I Love Somebody. One day,
I’ll find what I’m looking for. I’ll Take My Chance.
In this world, I will even stop time, to become his angel.
Faithfully, I Love Somebody. I certainly will meet,
That irreplacable person.
I can’t stop this passion. Tomorrow will fly here soon.

Faithfully, I Love Somebody. The fateful encounter,
With that person, I’ll continue seeking it.
The sun starts shining, as I break into a run.
