Mr Children: Karakaze no Kaerimichi

August 5, 2008

Karakaze no Kaerimichi (The Way Home in a Dry Wind)

04.02.14
Artist: Mr. Children
Title: Karakaze no Kaerimichi (The Way Home in a Dry Wind)
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

A dry wind blows,
so let’s walk a little holding hands
we took our cues from the flowers and plants
swaying ever so slightly.

on a TV show I saw last night
a sick child was crying
Not to say that’s the reason but,
I must be thankful for where I am

today comes to an end
we’ll meet again next week
‘goodbye’ has a sad ring to it but
with you, it’s words of love.

even if we gripe, and moan
the hours will still go by so
let’s take our cues from the flowers and plants
and wave silently

today comes to an end
we’ll surely meet again
‘goodbye’ has a sad ring to it
but when I say it, it’s words of love.

a dry wind blows
so I’ll walk with my hands in my pockets
taking my cue from the flowers and plants
I walk into the wind,
by myself to the bus stop
on the road home in a dry wind.

Romaji

karakkaze ga fuita kara
sukoshi te wo tsunaide arukou yo
hana ya kusagi ni narai bokura
karuku yurenagara

yuube mita terebi no naka
yamai no kodomo ga naiteita
dakara jyanai ga kou shiteirareru koto
kansha wo shinakucha na

kyou no hi ga owaru
mata raishuu ni aeru

‘sayonara’ ha kanashii hibiki dakedo
kimi to naraba ai no kotoba

kuyande mo nageitete mo
jikan ha sugiteshimau kara
hana ya kusagi ni narai bokura
damatte te wo furou

kyou no hi ga owaru
mata kanarazu aeru
‘sayonara’ ha kanashii hibiki dakedo
boku ga ieba ai no kotoba

karakkaze ga fuitakara
poketto ni te wo iretearuku yo
hana ya kusagi ni narai boku ha
mukai kaze wo ukete
hitori de basutei made
karakkaze no kaerimichi.

    this is a really amazing song… i can’t believe how clearly it reflects the feeling when you leave someone you love and go off by yourself… and the music is so perfect with the lyrics (not always a given with Mr C songs imo)

      I think so too. But, for some strange reason, I have always been attracted to songs about winds
      (Wild is the Wind, Wind Beneath My Wings, Goin’ Where the Wing Blows et cetera)
