Mr Children: Slow Starter

August 21, 2008

Slow Starter

      04.01.30
      Artist: Mr. Children
      Title: Slow Starter
      Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
      Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

      if you listen carefully, you can hear it faintly
      a voice teasing you to come to it.

      the departure bell rang
      slow starter, time to go

      if I run away from here, and go home to the country
      I might make it out without anymore problems

      but I waited, waited longer
      slow starter, time to go

      I may seem pathetic but I don’t need sympathy
      wagging my tail, I’ll take when I see an opening.

      other people laugh “you don’t have to put up fronts”
      I don’t dream dreams that won’t come true.

      the departure bell rang
      slow starter, time to go

      mimi wo samashitara kasuka ni kikoeru yo
      koko made oide to ijiwaru na koe ga suru

      shuppatsu no kane ha natta
      suro-suta-ta- ima hassha

      koko wo nigedashite inaka ni kaereba
      kore ijyou iya na koto shirazu ni sumisou

      demo matta choi matta
      suro- suta-ta- ima hassha

      mijimesou ni miete mo doujyou nante iranai
      shippo wo furifuri shite suki wo mite ubaitoru

      tsuyogari wo iu na to hito ha warau kedo
      kanawanu yume nado ore ha minai no yo

      shuppatsu na kane ha natta
      suro- suta-ta- ima hassha
