HARUMI LYRICS.

TALK ABOUT IT

Oh, I've got to find myself
I've been searching all over
I must find
What's in my mind

But I've got to open my eyes
It's getting so cloudy
I'm so confused
I've been abused

I'm gonna talk about it
I'm gonna sing about it
I'm gonna hear people doubt it
But I will try, ah!

I wanna know what's over there
Is it different over there
How many times have I wondered what's there

I tried it once, twice
Three times and all the times
I realized that nothing in this whole world could help me

I tried to believe you
I couldn't see you
The only thing to do was to do it myself

Oh, I've got to find myself
I've been searching all over
I must find
What's in my mind

But I've got to open my eyes
It's getting so cloudy
I'm so confused
I've been abused

I'm gonna talk about it
I am going to sing about it
I'm still gonna hear people doubt it
But I will try, ah!

I wanna know what's over there
Is it different over there
How many times have I wondered what's there

I tried it once, twice
Three times and all the times
I realized that nothing in this whole world could help me

I tried to believe you
I couldn't see you
The only thing to do was to do it myself

SUGAR IN YOUR TEA

Do you go walking through the door
And feel you were there before
But you're not sure

Then you go walking down the street on your feet
And you find yourself
Feeling discreet

WHAT A DAY FOR ME

What a day for me
What a day for me
Feels so strange
I don't know what time
Or day it is

What a trip for me
What a trip for me
I was this, I was that
I was anything
I wanted to be

If I lost my mind
I'd probably not laugh because
It's not so funny anymore

What a day for me
Feels so strange
I don't know what time
Or day it is

What a trip for me
I was this, I was that
I was anything
I wanted to be

I thought I knew everything
But then I wonder if it's the right thing
No matter what it was, there'll be more

What a day for me

I thought I knew everything
But then I wonder if it's the right thing
No matter what it was, there'll be more

What a day for me
What a day for me

WE LOVE

We love
Together we can build a strong
Together we can last for long

We love
To feel the freshness in the hair
And let the wind blow through your hair

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh, oh

We love
You are me and I am you
There's no comparison for two

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh, oh

This is how it has to be
That's the way it's going to be, oh
I would like to say hello to everyone that you have ever known

We love
You are me and I am you
There's no comparison for two

We love
Our future dreams are understood
Everything we do is for good

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh, oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh
We love

FIRE BY THE RIVER

Fire by the river
I thought I saw her
I recall
I reach up
In my mind

Raised by the river
I was furious
But then
I was there
All alone

Let me create
My world
A symphony
My heart
A comedy
My love

Ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah

Sound by the river
I thought I hear her
I stared everywhere
With my eyes

Tame by the river
Don't think it's over
I recall
I reach up
In my mind

Let me create
My world
A symphony
My heart
A comedy
My love

Ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah

TWICE-TOLD TALES OF THE POMEGRANATE FOREST

H:
There's a cry in the air
I'll catch you as before
I am the dragonfly hunter

R:
There again is a circle
There again is a circle
The effort, see, the complete effort to be beautiful
And being beautiful
While the whole of anything is meant to be silently understood
Only if it is the effort, not the complete thing
But the effort, the effort is the beauty, the effort

H:
How long is waiting?
How short is life?
Blue morning glory

R:
And that morning, or that moment
When it didn't really matter
To live or die
It really didn't matter
To live or die
That's suspended animation
The suspended animation of being
That is true perfection

H:
Coin on the plate
Bird in a cage
A summer festival

R:
And every man becomes
Free in the bounds of his own shackles
The real freedom, the true freedom
Is concept

H:
Keeper of their own
Faces of life
You are yawning cat

R:
The effort to be me
Oh, what an effort, what an effort
The effort to be me
The quest, the curiosity
And there again
The perfection of effort
The perfection of effort

H:
Descending down the road?
I'll bring you up
Though you may not know

R:
And as she walked
She became a part of the divine canvas
Upon which the immortal hand of god painted his seasonal masterpiece to beautify his domain
She had worn well her garment of flesh of twenty-three years
For it was yet tender and ripe
As if still holding the perfumed dampness of her mother's womb

H:
Happy chattering
Four-tined
And melted into mist

R:
It is but a favor
Truly a favor
The dream
The quest for reality
The taut desperation
The quest for reality

A coin on a plate
Bird in a cage
A summer festival

H:
During New Year's, I think it's the biggest day, they carry it out for two or three days, and we eat lots
of different kind of foods and specially prepared rice cakes, bean curries, red carp, rice wine, lotus
roots, red caviar.
This is a pretty food, you know, it's all decorated.
And sushi, sashimi- such an artistic thing, they go through, just to prepare one dish.
It's one of the exciting, one of the exciting days.
Cause, uh, you play many games, such as, you fly kites, play cards, make gifts.
And there's these dragon dances, and my parents would take us to friend's house, and pay greeting to them,
just, "Happy New Year", and uh, you hand him a token, money or present, and you go around, the whole day
almost, and you give it to many people.
I think it's neat.

R:
Keeper of their own faces of life
You old yawning cat

H:
In Japan, people, we go fishing for a two-inch fish, with a long, uh, ten-foot bamboo pole.
Ten-to-fifteen-feet bamboo pole.
Just to catch this, two-inch fish.
But they, they enjoy this, doing this, more than catching the bigger fish because this little fish, with
this thin long bamboo pole, gave you more fight, than any other fish did in a, in a, in a, weird it's, in
a smaller way.
But, you know how you could s-, become smaller and st- have as much fun.
And, but this is what they did, and this is what they always do, catch this two-inch fish, hehehehe, ah.

R:
There's a cry in the air
I'll catch you as before
I am the dragonfly hunter

H:
Heh, did you ever see an ant eating, um, it's an anteater but it's not a big, ant, eater, like animal,
it's like another insect, and he was, on the ground, and he bodes, uh, war, sort of out of uh, heavily
sand, like, not fine sand but a round sand.
And it builds, sort of like a volcano kind of mountain, and stays in the middle in uh, the bottom.
And, when an ant climbs to the top of it, they just dig one part of the, bottom, rock, and the whole dirt
pile would just fshwee!, fall down, and the ant, the ant rolled down to the bottom and, every time he
tries to climb up he just fling a little more dirt, and the ant would roll down into this hole.
And eventually gets eaten up, hehehehehe.

R:
How long is waiting?
How short is life?
True morning glory

H:
I remember seeing these fields and fields of rice paddies, a woman, three, four women, hunched down, in
different places, with a round, triangular hat.
And there we, planted the seedlings, into the soil, one by one, their feet in this muddy water.
And now, and we watched these people go down, to fire us, and watch this slow frog whistle, and this, so
beautiful, just the way they look.

R:
Once, in the heart of the city, I had a pregnant dog, and across the street, I picked up my dog, and I
held my dog on the lawn, and, while crossing the street, I suddenly felt, for the first time in my life,
one life inside of another.
And I remember running, to the park, because the park represented to me, a beautiful green bed.
And I wanted to roll around on that green, beautiful bed, and absorb the miracle that I had discovered,
and that was, one life being inside of another, my little pregnant dog.
I remember rolling across the lawn, and pounding the grass, and trying to keep hold within me, that
discovery.
And to me, I had discovered then, the miracle of reality.
And I no longer needed dreams.
Reality was so beautiful, so complete.
And I remember, the little dog looking at me, and in a sense, the dog became so, whole, because this was
so much, what I was exclaiming and so happy about, was so much a part of the dog, that there was a
certain... tolerance, a certain, patient, gentle tolerance on the part of the dog, that allowed the dog to
sit, and wait until I had exhausted, this exhiliration.
The miracle of reality, discovering it.
And maybe that's the true... journey through life, that, discovering that, miracle.

H:
One of the farmer, when I went to the fields, and my brother and I were at the house, when he came home he
brought us this snake, which is, poison snake, but he had carried it all the way home, alive, and he came
home, and he just, cut its head off, and pulled the skin off his back in one shot, to count the hearts,
and the intestines, and, he put the heart in his hand and, and the heart was still, pumping, still moving.
And he said to my brother, "Here, swallow this, it will make you stronger."
And then, he hesitated, but, swallowed it, and, I didn't know what to do, hehe.
But I wanted to, he, I wanted to, hehe, there was only one heart, hehehehe, hehe, hehe.
Anyway, I watched this, bone, life in, and it was still moving, heh.
He, he hung it up, to let it dry, cause he wanted to eat it after it dried up, cause it supposed to taste
good, and I watched this thing move for, three, four hours, in amazement, heh, that it kept on moving.

R:
Did you ever have a, a pregnant dog?
And how far removed we are, from that reality, from that true reality.
I remember, too, taking blades of grass, and, not being so fascinated by, the grass itself, it was a blade
of grass, but, the fact that I could, actually touch, I could touch, and I knew that I was touching, the
blade of grass.
And then I took my fingers and I, rubbed them across the grass, and it, again, it wasn't the grass, that
so excited me, but the fact that I could touch, touch and smell and see, and that too is the miracle of
reality.
And I would look again at my fingertips, and I would rub the thumb against the other fingers, perhaps,
words don't really express it, but I would think, and sometimes aloud I would say, I can touch, I can
touch, I can touch.
And then I would look, and I would say, I could see, I can see, I can see.
All the miracle of reality.
And then, I guess the most exciting part, the most exciting circumstance, was when I found out I could
love, I could love, I could feel love.
And that became the most beautiful miracle of reality.
And it's probably, the miracle that I'll never be able to quite absorb, or ever become used to.
And perhaps because, love is the, true, most complete, miracle of reality, perhaps it's the lost chord,
that we always speak of, or feel the absence of, and what we're constantly in pursuit of.

H:
I think it's the head of all wisdom.

R:
Hm, it is all wisdom.
See that, love, feeling, perhaps the true, circumstance of communication.
Because if I feel, sufficiently, and if I feel with honesty, real honesty, then I am wise, in reacting to
that, and everything from it, is wisdom.
It has to be, the true wisdom, with a child, why did you do that?
I just felt like it, mommy.
I just felt like it.
And so with love, it's like the, the mother, that embraces all, and everything, that makes everything feel
so secure.
And without it, there's so much insecurity.
And even now, as I think about it, about discovering love, even now, you try to drink of it, and the
thirst goes on and on and on and on.
It's an unquenchable thirst.
And that's what life is, life is love.

H:
In Japan, I didn't hear about the atom bomb so much, until they started testing in Bikini Islands, and
once again, and uh, the fishermen, who were fishing for, uh, tuna, nearby the islands, and uh, all of a
sudden there was white flakes like, falling like snow, everywhere, on, around the boat and everything.
And, uh, the fishermen, they didn't know what it was, and they thought it was snow, so uh, they, they
grabbed the snow, and, they would eat some, as, as water, cause it taste good and everything.
After few days, they'd started losing hair, skin started peeling, and, many died, and the, and the tunas
were also uh, poisonous, and has killed many people in Japan.
That's when it really hit me, about the atom bomb, cause um, the first atom bomb I wasn't, born, and the
uh, the horror, of it, although I've seen it in films and, read about them, I was not, born, or I was not
grown enough to read about it.
One of my friend I met here, has t-, has told me about it, he was uh, hundred miles, away, when the atom
bomb was dropped in Hiroshima.
And, he was walking home from school, and all of a sudden, everybody around him, started to bleed, from,
from their noses, including him, and, he didn't even know what happened, until later on, that it was th-
n-, that it was the atom bomb.

R:
You ever hunt dragonflies?

H:
Many times, heh, heh.

R:
And does that-

H:
And I'd catch them again, heh.

R:
Don't you think hunting dragonflies, is like hunting for something else, don't you think that is the
curiosity, that motivates, the pursuit, of a dragonfly?

H:
I guess so.

R:
To me it always meant, like, the pursuit of beauty, or the pursuit of an ideal.
Chasing butterflies.
I think our life, pattern, is like that, when we chase a beautiful thing, and they're ever so elusive.
We reach out...
I remember as kids, we would grab a, butterfly examine it so completely, and even that wasn't enough, that
didn't satisfy.
And we went to sleep at night, woke up the next morning, and we went in pursuit of it again.
The appetite is never satisfied.

How long is waiting?
How short is life?

It's like an, an active, waiting, because even while we wait, we still in a sense, reach out, perhaps with
the mind, that which we don't reach out for, with the hand, we seem to reach out, for with the mind.
So maybe it's a sort of, active waiting.
And as you said, we, enjoy happy moments, and at times it's just go so fast.
Maybe it's because, doing that happiness, we have completely, uh, found ourselves.
And nothing else really matters than time, movement, nothing.
And perhaps it is completed.
And in the midst of that happiness, we don't care whether it is completeness or not.
Maybe that's what true completeness is.
Not being aware of, or being so busy with oneself, and the discovery of oneself, that we're not concerned
about, how complete it is.
As a little boy, the dreams, perhaps the beginning, the dream is the beginning, of the curiosity, of
asking, I, why?
How many times did you ask yourself that, I why?
Maybe in that moment or many moments of happiness, maybe it's answered, I, why.
Maybe the answer is received so many many times, and, only at, a particular moment, or, particular moment,
do we, absorb it, there is the answer.
And maybe those particular moments mean, complete discovery of oneself.
And when we are without the answer, perhaps it is because, we have removed ourselves from ourselves, and
reentered into the, the net, of confusion.
We start groping again, trying to find footing.
It's like forgetting that, as we walk on cement, there is grass, there is grass beneath.
And as we walk, we don't remember, recall, the fact that there is grass under, we come closer to,
ourselves again, could you feel the, the grass, with the bare naked feet, and wasn't that feeling of life.
And what about the dreams.

H:
As I fish, I was always thinking about, those things before. Then, after a while, we would be thinking, a
place we gonna go next. At school went to many picnics, and one time, we went to see a Buddha, a great
big, a big Buddha, where, where one person could climb into the nostril, of the Buddha. The whole
surroundings, consists of, gardens, temple, thousands of uh, statues, uh, eight-handed Buddhas.
Mysterious, sort of religious, feeling and aroma, I could still, feel this.
I've passed by Mount Fuji many times cause, ah, Mount Fuji you can see from almost, ah, everywhere, in
Tokyo. And it's top, is capped, with snow. And it looks like, uh, sort of like, mountain of ice cream,
heh.
