Mr Children: Tegami (Letter)

August 21, 2008

Tegami (Letter)

Artist: Mr. Children
Title: Tegami (A Letter)
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

to you who’s gone from my life, to you of my memories
these days I’m realizing somethings can’t be replaced.

we hurt each other making a big fuss over trifling matters,
now thinking of you, even then you’d always change into a smile.

I crossed the far off summer, beyond the fall,
I think of you.
even now I want to meet you, i’m so lonely
though I hate my foolish self.

to you who’s gone from my life, to you of my memories
I guess you’ll be sleeping in another’s arms now,
even though its Spring when flowers stream in the wind.

Translated By: Brian Stewart & Takako Sakuma

Translator’s Notes: This song is so sad. Its one of my personal favorites
from the Shinkai album. Its so poignant for with few words. I don’t think
anyone who’s ever been in love can help but to get teary eyed upon hearing


(note: the romaji may not be accurate, appreciate corrections)

    I suggest
    Sugisari shi anata he, onoide no anata he
    Kakegae no nai mono ni kuzuki yuku Mm
    Koni goro desu
    (I didn’t put a “d” for “kidzuku” since u hear it but don’t write it)
    Sasaina koto ni jounetsu o butsuke kizutsuke atte

      Thank you, I’ll amend the romaji soonest. Sorry for late reply; work, life etc have been really busy. If you have anything else that you’d like to contribute to, just drop me a note. I’ll credit it and link it back to you :)
