Kadhja Bonet
Fairweather Friend
[Verse 1]
We sat beneath a tree who wept in shades of pink
And Spring devolved her speech, the blossoms peaking
With borrowed comfort sipped from bottles made of gla**
Ah, Sakura, mono no aware

[Chorus]
O, fairweather friend, bending away for the touch of light
O, fair thee well friend, all that I ask is you say goodbye

[Verse 2]
Along a failing climb, we danced without our wits
Suspended curly wisps -- like clouds of cirrus
Hakanai koi, amai Sakura
Ah, Sakura, mono no aware

[Chorus]
O, fairweather friend, bending away for the touch of light
O, fair thee well friend, all that I ask is you say goodbye

[Verse 3]
Below the waning moon, we chilled our sticky cheeks
And Neptune played a song -- as dreams were changing
The moments that will last were never made of tact
Ah, Sakura, mono no aware
