Miki Matsubara biography

Natural from Osaka, more specifically from Kishiwada, was born in November 1959 and had contact with music from an early age, mainly due to the influence of his mother, who had already participated in jazz performances. Thus, from the beginning of the 70's, still a child, Miki starts to develop his first original songs.

But it was "Stay With Me" (mayonaka no door), as we said earlier, the main responsible for promoting the singer's success. At the YouTube, the song currently has an incredible 77 million views on a single video. Check it out below:

Watashi wa watashi anata wa anata to

JAPONÊS (LETRA ORIGINAL)

To you…yes my love to you 
yes my love to you you… to you...

私は私 貴方は貴方と
昨夜言ってたそんな気もするわ
グレイのジャケットに見覚えがあるコーヒーのしみ
相変らずなのね ショーウィンドウに二人映れば

stay with me…真夜中のドアをたたき
帰らないでと泣いたあの季節が 今 目の前
stay with me…口ぐせを言いながら
二人の瞬間を抱いてまだ忘れず
大事にしていた

恋と愛とは違うものだよと
昨夜言われたそんな気もするわ
二度目の冬が来て離れていった貴方の心
ふり返ればいつもそこに貴方を感じていたの

stay with me…真夜中のドアをたたき
心に穴があいたあの季節が 今 目の前
stay with me…淋しさまぎらわして
置いたレコードの針同じメロディ繰り返していた
stay with me…真夜中のドアをたたき
帰らないでと泣いたあの季節が 今 目の前
stay with me…口ぐせを言いながら
二人の瞬間を抱いてまだ忘れず 暖めてた
