Song for Japan - Furusato by Mukai Shutoku

Mukai Shutoku is one of the most prominent figures of the Japanese indie-music scene (Former member of ‘Number Girl’, now founder and leader of ‘Zazen Boys’). Last Wednesday, apparently still in shock and mourning about the tragic events in Japan, he posted a new song, just voice and guitar titled Furusato - Home town.
Here is the link, one of the saddest performances I ever heard.
Another Youtube-user was kind enough to provide translations in English in the comments.
