Mr Children: Itsudemo Hohoemi wo

Itsudemo Hohoemi wo (Always with a Smile)

03.06.18
Artist: Mr Children
Title: Itsudemo Hohoemi wo (Always with a Smile)
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

People dressed in black in the cramped street
They say that house met with sudden misfortune
I know life has to end but…

Even when everything is going as planned,
I’ll soon be looking for the next thing that’s missing.
No matter how I hurt others, I’ll never be satisfied.

There was this song from a ways back…
that went “always with a smile”
I think maybe now’s the time for us to sing it.

There was this song from a ways back…that went
“always with a smile ”
I wonder if that song loses its meaning in the midst of tragedy.

I’ll go on living inside of you
even when I leave this world behind,
realizing that makes me feel I can go on somehow.

and that’s why, “always with a smile” “always with a smile”

Translated By: Brian Stewart & Takako Sakuma

Translator’s Notes: We can’t for the life of us remember which song that
comes from… we’re fairly certain it’s ‘The Sound of Music’ or something
like it but… Argh! I will find it. Dont worry. (Message From the Future:
Still Haven’t Found it, HELP!)

semai roji ni kuroi su-tsu no hitotachi
kyuu na fukou ga sono ie ni atta to iu
inochi ha hateru mono wakatte ha iru kedo

nanimokamo omoidoori ni natta to shite mo
sugu tsugi no fuman wo sagashiteshimau darou
keshite mitasarenai dareka ga kizutsuite mo

itsudemo hohoemi wo
sonna uta ga mukashi atta you na
imakoso sono uta wo
bokutachi ha utaubeki jyanai ka naa

itsudemo hohoemi wo
sonna uta ga mukashi atta you na
higeki no mannaka jya sono uta ha
imi wo nakushiteshimau ka na

moshi boku ga kono yo kara sudatteitte mo
kimi no naka de boku ha ikitsuzukeru darou
sou omoeba nantoka yatteikesou da yo

sou dakara itsumo itsudemo hohoemi wo,
itsudemo hohoemi wo
itsudemo hohoemi wo
