Mr Children: Innocent World

August 5, 2008

Innocent World

04.07.20
Artist: Mr. Children
Title: Innocent World
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

We embraced each other with our backs turned to the darkening city.
Those days seize my heart.
When my thoughtless words hurt you. And then you were gone.
These days, this miserable man reflecting in the window
has become dear to me as well.

Ah in the way that I do, I hold onto the dream I refused to throwaway
and keep walking to the end is that all right, mr. myself ?

All the time my heart goes along easily and gently
with this melody overflowing in my chest.
I’ll climb the sunny slope, but before this, I’d like to meet you again
somewhere.

Recently even our dinner topics are spoiled by business,
if we look at everything from so many angles
then we lose sight of ourselves.

Through a series of intricate relationships,
I can make the accounts balance but,
Ah you are unaffected in your quiet little life,
sometimes it’s like you just let the wind decide your fate
Isn’t that right, oh Miss yourself ?

Being hit by a weary June rain.
remembering the season I was full of love I sing !
Somewhere along the way I had forgotten but
show me something like a smile
and my uncertain feelings will be liberated
to the other side of the rainbow.

In street corners that keep changing,
the fragments of dreams come to life.
Oh except now,
and then just as I am, tomorrow as well I intend to continue on
toward this far away light in my chest. Is that all right, mr. myself?

All the time the melody overflowing in my chest,
my kind and gentle heart aches.
before I climb the sunny slope
it would be nice if we could meet again somewhere

At that time I’ll be laughing, going to the other side of the rainbow.
Innocent World. eternally continuing innocent world.

ROMAJI

Tasogare no machi wo se ni dakiaeta ano koro ga mune wo kasumeru
Karuhazumina kotoba ga toki ni hito wo kizutsuketa soshite kimi wa inai yo

Mado ni utsuru awarena otoko ga itooshiku mo aru kono koro de wa
Ah boku wa boku no mama de yuzurenu yume wo kakaete
Dokomademo aruki tsuzukete iku yo ii darou?
Mr. myself

Itsu no hi mo kono mune ni nagareteru merodii
Karoyaka ni yuruyaka ni kokoro wo tsutau yo
Hi no ataru sakamichi wo noboru sono mae ni
Mata doko ka de aeru to ii na inosento waarudo

Chikagoro ja yuushoku no wadai de sae shigoto ni yogo sareteite
Samazama na kakudo kara monogoto wo miteitara jibun wo miushinatteta

Irikundeiru kankei no naka de itsumo choujiri awaseru kedo
Ah kimi wa kimi no mama ni shizuka na kurashi no naka de
Toki ni wa kaze ni mi wo makaseruno mo iijanai
Oh miss yourself
Monougena roku gatsu no ame ni utarete
Ai ni michita kisetsu wo omotte utau yo
Shiranu mani wasureteta egao nado misete
Niji no kanata e hanatsu no sa yureru omoi wo

Kawari tsuzukeru machi no katasumi de yume no kakera ga umarete kuru
Oh ima ni mo
Soshite boku wa kono mama de kasukana hikari wo mune ni
Ashita mo susunde iku tsumori da yo ii darou?
Mr. myself
Itsu no hi mo kono mune ni nagareteru merodii, Setsunakute yasashikute kokoro ga itai yo, Hi no ataru sakamichi wo noboru sono mae ni, Mata dokoka de aeru to ii na sono toki wa waratte
Niji no kanata e hanatsu no sa inosento waarudo
Hateshinaku tsuzuku inosento waarudo

    Wow, is that really what it means in English? So beautiful! I dreaded looking up the lyrics because I worried it would ruin the song for me. Now I love it even more, thank you! ^_^
