There’s no need to be No. 1. You’ve always been a very special only one. One-of-a-kind.

Title: Sekai ni Hitotsu Dake no Hana (A Flower Unlike Any Other in The World)
Words: Makihara Noriyuki
Music: Makihara Noriyuki

There’s no need to be No. 1
you’ve always been a very special only one.

I saw many kinds of flowers lined up in front of the flowershop.
everyone has their favorite kinds but all of them are pretty.
Without competing to see which was the best among them,
they were standing straight up proudly inside the bucket.
So why then do we humans have to compare ourselves to one another?
Eventhough each and every person is different,
why do we want to be number one?
Yes we are each..

A flower unlike any other in the world
and each and everyone of us carries a different seed
We should focus all our efforts on trying to make that flower bloom.

There are people who are constantly unsure of what they want,
as they laugh a little put out.
It can’t be helped, all those flowers,
that did everything they could to bloom, are pretty.
when at last that person comes out of the store,
they’re holding a colorful bouquet
and I see them smiling happilly as they go by me.
I never knew their name but
that day they made me smile.

We too are like flowers that bloom in places where no one pays any attention.
Yes we too are each…

A flower unlike any other in the world
and each and everyone of us carries a different seed
We should focus all our efforts on trying to make that flower bloom.

Small flowers and big flowers, none are the same as one another.
There’s no need to be No. 1
you’ve always been a very special only one.

Translator’s Notes: We were tempted to translate “Only one” into more workable English which would have been, one-of-a-kind. Often times in translating you’ll find English lines that don’t fit well with the translation. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and leave it alone, but every so often you have to change English lines. Not much else to be said here, but in counterpoint a line from Fight Club You are not a unique and individual snowflake erm..flower. =P
