Mr Children: Drawing

Drawing

Artist: Mr. Children
Title: Drawing
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

I suddenly had a momentary flashback of the scenery I dreamed of in my far
far off childhood.
The young girl who kissed my cheek while laughing overlaps with you.

The floating time is marked by the faint rays from the cloudy sky
I wonder if I can pack air tight this wonderful troublesome feeling?

Even if I draw it, as time goes on, something will fade.
Forever is always a fleeting shapeless shadow,
with you, by me

If I could draw better and better pictures
what I really want to draw is you.
for me, you are, in short, those little points
and everything in total.

The real answer is slumbering within the foolishness and lies
I wonder if we can make it through this wonderful hasty life three legged?

No matter what I draw you’ll definitely be in the picture.
I know it when I take a deep breath with my eyes closed.
You’re always in my notepad.

Even if I draw it, as time goes on, something will fade.
Forever is always a fleeting shapeless shadow,
with you, by me
and always in my notepad.

Translator’s Notes: “three-legged” means like with one of each person’s
legs bound to one of the other person’s legs. Like in a three legged race.

ROMAJI

Tooi tooi kodomo no koro yume de mita keshiki ga
Isshun furasshu bakku shitan da
Warainagara boku no hoho ni kisu wo suru shoujo ga
Kimi to oobaarappu shite awai hikari no kumorizora ni
Fuwafuwa na toki wo kizande iku
Kono subarashii wazurawashii kimochi wo
Shinkuu pakku shite okenai mon ka naa

E ni kaita toshitemo
Toki to tomo ni nanika ga iroasete shimau deshou
Eien wa itsu demo
Katachi no nai hakanai kage
Kimi to tomo ni boku no moto ni

Motto motto jouzu ni
Ironna e wo kaketa nara
Yappari kimi wo kakitai na
Boku ni totte kimi to wa
Tsumari sou chiisana ten
Soshite arayuru subete
Detarame to uso no oku ni
Hontou no kotae ga nemutte iru
Kono subarashii awatadashii
Jinsei wo futari sankyaky de koete ikeru ka naa

Donna bamen demo
Boku no e ni wa kanarazu kimi ga kakarete ite
Me wo tojita mama shinkokyuu shite mireba wakaru
Kimi wa itsumo boku no nooto ni

E ni kaita toshitemo
Toki to tomo ni nanika ga iroasete shimau deshou
Eien wa itsu demo
Katachi no nai hakanai kage
Kimi to tomo ni boku no moto ni

Soshite itsumo boku no nooto ni
