Mr Children: Shiawase no Category (Goodbye to that Category)

August 21, 2008

Shiawase no Category (Goodbye to that Category)

Transliteration & romaji by Megchan

      The words of love pass me by
      Though we kiss, the wind of loneliness
      Blows through my heart

      That racing heartbeat of the day we met
      Has long since been frozen
      By the freezer of daily life

      “There’s a dreamlike existence right there if I just reach out for it”
      Or so I kept telling myself

      Hurting and being hurt
      Were just too much trouble for both of us
      We focused on the form
      And tried to appear smart
      And so now
      That happy category is disappearing

      I laughed off the ominous predictions
      Without listening to anyone’s warnings
      Back then when I was still careless

      I thought everything
      Was going endlessly well
      But happiness
      Is such a fragile, fleeting thing

      It’s okay to walk down the road that leads to a sunny spot
      With someone else
      If we’re no longer lovers
      Will I only remember the good things about you?
      At least for the time being I will
      But I’m tired of being with you

      The truth is I don’t really feel like I’m anywhere
      That’s why we search for substitutes
      The journey of love continues

      I don’t wish for anything anymore
      But lately I don’t quite understand
      How you love is up to you
      And you’ll probably realize that eventually
      So until that day
      It’s goodbye to that happy category

Romaji

      Toorisugiru ai no kotoba
      Kuchibiru wo kasanetatte kodoku na kaze
      Mune wo fukinukeru

      Deatta hi no hazumu kodou wa
      Nichijou to iu na no furiizaa no naka de
      Tou ni kooritsuiteru

      “Yume no you na mainichi ga te wo nobaseba soko ni tatteru”
      Sonna fuu ni jibun ni iikikasete sugoshiteta kedo

      Kizu tsuku koto kizu tsukeru koto ga
      Tagai ni nantonaku mendou kusakatta dake
      Keishiki dake ni me wo ubawarete
      Tada sumaato ni osamatteyou to shita futari
      Ima to natte wa
      Kie yuku shiawase no category

      Dareka no chuukoku mo kizaku
      Fukitsu na uranai wo waraitobashiteta
      Mada muboubi datta koro

      Kagirinaku subete ga
      Umaku itteru you ni omotteta
      Shiawase tte amari ni
      Moroku hakanai mono nan da ne

      Hi no ataru basho ni tsuzuku michi
      Chigau dareka to arukidaseba ii sa
      Koibito doushi de wa naku nattara
      Kimi no ii toko bakari omoidasu no ka na?
      Toubun wa sou darou
      Demo kimi to iru no wa korigori

      Hontou no jibun nante doko ni mo inai you na ki ga shiteru
      Dakara koso bokura wa sono migawari wo sagasun da ne
      Koi no tabiji wa tsuzukun da ne

      Mou nanimo nozomi wa shinai kedo
      Saikini wa choppiri wakarikaketerun da
      Ai shikata tte motto jiyuu na mon da yo
      Kimi wa itsu shika sono koto ni kizuku no darou
      Jaa sono hi made
      Sayonara shiawase no category
