Mr Children: Iwasetemitee Mon da

Iwasetemitee Mon da (Something I Wish I Could Make You Say)

04.05.03
Artist: Mr. Children
Title: Iwasetemitee Mon da (Something I Wish I Could Make You Say)
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

even if you’re sick of me,
it doesn’t bother me at all.
I’m not banking
on this “forever” stuff you speak of

I long ago tossed out the blackbelt I was so proud of
I don’t want to live just hanging there.

I’m trying to acquire skills only I’m capable of
but it’s all the same, just too boring
looking at a sky beyond my reach,
has got me feeling totally ashamed again.

I want you to call me “Fantasista” *1
not just at night, in the day too
I want so badly to make you say that you need me.

even if I get jealous of another’s genius,
and speak sarcastically of them,
It does nothing, What should I do?

the form of my dreams,
seems like those superstitions that’ve been around forever
on the intersecting line between now and then
I’m sure we know what’s important
but we’re just spinning our wheels.
so why not spin them for a reason.

even if you’re sick of me,
it won’t bother me at all.
but I wish so badly I could make you say you need me
c’mon, just say it.

Translated By: Brian Stewart & Takako Sakuma

Translator’s Notes: *!

* 1 – Fantasista is a word from soccer that means roughly, “a charismatic
player”. I think when Sakurai sings “in the day as well as night” he’s
talking about wanting this person to think he’s more than just good in
bed.
