Hana: Subete no Hito no Kokoro ni Hana wo

Kawa wa nagarete doko doko yuku no
Hito mo nagarete doko doko yuku no
Sonna nagare ga tsuku koro ni wa
Hana to shite, hana to shite
Sakasete agetai

Nakinasai, warainasai
Itsu no hi ka, itsu no hi ka
Hana wo sakasδ yo

Namida nagarete doko doko yuku no
Ai mo nagarete doko doko yuku no
Sonna nagare wo kono uchi ni
Hana to shite, hana to shite
Mu(ka)ete agetai

Nakinasai, warainasai.
Itsu no hi ka, itsu no hi ka
Hana wo sakasδ yo

Hana wa hana to shite warai mo dekiru
Hito wa hito to shite namida mo nagasu
Sore ga shizen no uta na no sa
Kokoro no naka ni, kokoro no naka ni
Hana wo sakasδ yo

Nakinasai, warainasai.
Itsu itsu ma de mo, itsu itsu ma de mo
Hana wo tsu ka mδ yo

Lyrics and melody by Kina Shoukichi

Hana: May Flowers Bloom in the Hearts of All People

Rivers flow on and on to who knows where.
People also flow on and on to who knows where.
When they reach their ends,
I would make such currents bloom
As flowers! As flowers!

Please cry if you must and laugh if you must,
And some day, some day
Let us make our flowers bloom!

Tears flow on and on to who knows where.
Love also flows on and on to who knows where.
Within this heart,
I would make such currents bloom
As flowers! As flowers!

Please cry if you must and laugh if you must,
And some day, some day
Let us make our flowers bloom!

Flowers, being flowers, are able to laugh.
People, being people, will also shed tears.
That is the song of nature, you know.
Let us make our flowers bloom
In our hearts! In our hearts!

Please cry if you must and laugh if you must,
And some day, some day
Let us make our flowers bloom!
