Utada Hikaru - This One (Crying Like A Child) Lyrics

How can I put this I I I
I'm an independent woman, I...
I've been crying like a child
I just wanted you to know the person that I am
More than any other your fans
I would love you for a thousand years
Yours truly

I ain't gonna play it cool
Let me tell you I've tried that
Every day, and every night, your words
Ring through me
Who am I trying to fool, honey I've been living on my own
like Freddy
But I'm still a woman, baby tell me how

How could I ever love another?
How could you say you don't remember?
God knows I'd give anything
For just one more night together
Today I'll miss you more than ever
How could you say you don't remember?
This one's for the happiness I'll be wishing you forever

It's just another Friday night
For you and your accessory (lights)
And there you are before my eyes
Two hours and for fifteen minutes you are here
I don't wanna scream lest I should tear
A whisper in the darkness disappears

We should get back on the road
Like Simon and Garfunkel
Let's get married
You were all the shelter that I need above me
Who am I trying to fool
Honey I've got your ringtone on my
And I won't give a damn if only I knew how

How could I ever love another?
How could you say you don't remember?
God knows I'd give anything
For just one more night together
Today I'll miss you more than ever
How could you say you don't remember?
This one's for the happiness I'll be wishing you forever

You got me crying like a child
Ain't no need for me to lie
A hundred JPEG files fillin' up my hard drive
You got me crying like a child
And the crowd is going wild
This one, this is the one
Come on and give it up

How could I ever love another?
How could you say you don't remember?
God knows I'd give anything
For just one more night together
Today I'll miss you more than ever
How could you say you don't remember?
This one's for the happiness I'll be wishing you forever

How could I ever love another?
How could you say you don't remember?
God knows I'd give anything
For just one more night together
Today I'll miss you more than ever
How could you say you don't remember?
This one's for the happiness I'll be wishing you forever

    I'm falling in love with you i won't say anything
    Can be anyone who can disturb you
    Better to let her go
    Don't love me anymore, I'll endure
    Can you help me love you
    I ask for compassion
    Don't worry if you don't love each other.
    Let people like me continue to love you.

    “Looking at the stars, distant horizon.
    Long wanted to reach half light her way.
    Like the star will never meet.
    I know the star.
    The moon will light up brightly.
    Understand the star
    You know, in front of the moon.
    The stars will light blur
    When the moon without light
    The stars will light up

  49. Kokaioh99

  57. jpopboy

    it's the modern day version of The Carpenter's song Superstar! Best song on the album...

  58. Haki

    thank you

  59. telephoneribosomemetronome

    Freddie Mercury has a song called, "Living On My Own," for those who don't get the reference. I guess when she mentions Simon and Garfunkel, she's talking about how they started touring again after like, 20 years. You don't really have to get the references to enjoy the song, though. I love how vulnerable the lyrics are.

    o min

    thanks, I thought this song is about her mother or parents.

    Lady Golem

    Yea I didn't understand the reference but I love her voice and that's what makes this song so good. When she said she's alone like Freddy, I thought she was talking about Freddie Kruger lol because that's the only Freddie that I know is alone.

  60. VeNuS2910

    i like the lyrics and the melody. :)

  61. Freddy Liang

    quite amusing listening to a song with my name in it :D

  62. Luis Bravo


  63. msjulicious

    she's like an obssessed fan in this song somehow. maybe the song is about a fan who fell in love and had a relationship with some rock star?

  64. Xiong Richard Sounthala

    Forgive the child don't hurt him

  65. Carrie Bonnett dinglebean

    I love this song, can relate in so many ways

  66. 廣田理子

    it swallowed up the herb tea in the coffee shop
    it coffee shop is very pretty.

  67. 無く敢え

    I 'll be wishing you forever <3 ~

  68. PrincessDarkheart

    For those asking about Freddie, I think she's talking about Freddie Mercury. One quote of hers from an article says ,"you might notice the references I make, to Captain Picard or Freddie Mercury or Winona".

  69. Jaron Wilkinson

    Favorite song from utada.... :)

  70. alaneasable

    sounds vaguely similar to mariah carey. but only a little. more like stylistically for this song.


    aye Kev they are both amazing in their own rights. They honestly are artistically and musically much alike. If you take the time to listen to Mariah’s discography you’d hear how much musicianship she has just like Utada.

    Gejamugam Latsoomanam

    MIMIxAyu can mariah sing Japanese and English,?


    Gejamugam Latsoomanam no, but she can sing in the whistle register which is the highest register. 💁🏼‍♀️

    Gejamugam Latsoomanam

    @MIMIxAyu like she did in new years eve when she got caught lip syncing something utada never does


    Gejamugam Latsoomanam She might have lip synced but gurl is still collecting coin 29 years into her career, and is still selling out doing a WORLD tour. Anyways, Utada has stated that Mariah has influenced her and has even played one of her songs on her radio show for her Mom when she passed. Don’t see what’s the point on hating on another artist just to try and prove whose better. 🤷🏼‍♀️

  71. herry heo

    i will love this song forever
