Ue o muite arukou
Namida ga kobore naiyouni
Omoidasu harunohi
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Ue o muite arukou
Nijinda hosi o kazoete
Omoidasu natsunohi
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Shiawase wa kumo no ueni
Shiawase wa sora no ueni

Ue o muite arukou
Namida ga kobore naiyouni
Nakinagara aruku
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Whistling

Omoidasu akinohi
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Kanashimi wa hosino kageni
Kanashimi wa tsukino kageni

Ue o muite arukou
Namida ga kobore naiyouni
Nakinagara aruku
Hitoribotchi no yoru

    I look up when I walk
    So the tears won't fall
    Remembering those happy spring days
    But tonight I'm all alone

    I look up when I walk
    Counting the stars with tearful eyes
    Remembering those happy summer days
    But tonight I'm all alone

    Happiness lies beyond the clouds
    Happiness lies above the sky

    I look up when I walk
    So the tears won't fall
    Though my heart is filled with sorrow *
    For tonight I'm all alone

    (whistling)

    Remembering those happy autumn days
    But tonight I'm all alone

    Sadness hides in the shadow of the stars
    Sadness lurks in the shadow of the moon

    I look up when I walk
    So the tears won't fall
    Though my heart is filled with sorrow *
    For tonight I'm all alone

    (whistling)

    Sorry billyb but that story is a myth. His birth name was Hisashi. He was from a large family and his father nicknamed him Kyu.

    Even as a little kid in the 60's i knew this song was about a broken heart, you can hear a broken heart.

    Trying not to let sorrow overcome you, hiding tears and trying to be strong. Looking up to keep from crying, very japanese.
