Not as easy as it seems

I had nothing interesting to do today so I spent part of the time trying to learn the lyrics to Yakusoku, the song I posted a video of a while ago. I've had the song in my head for a while and the melody is beautiful. Learning the lyrics ended up being harder than I thought it would be considering that it might as well all be gibberish to me. I recognize half a dozen words in the mix and trying to sing in a language you don't understand is screwy.

First couple of verses`

I'm sure any japanese speaker would skewer the hell out of it but I don't think it was a horrible attempt. It does make me think that maybe I should just try to learn the language after all. Sure, I have a snowball's chance in hell of ever becoming fluent, but it might be nice just to build up a vocabulary. It's something to think about anyway.
