Yasashii Uta (A Gentle Song)

01.08.20
Artist: Mr Children
Title: Yasashii Uta (A Gentle Song)
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

Someone is offering salvation to you
but, you haven’t realized that yet have you.

can we, in our apathy, confront the monster that lives in a cave of our
hearts?

a fleeting wish that might disappear in one breath
I start to say it, I swallow it, and get embarassed.

song of the soul staying in my heart, the voice of the convicted criminal
made to bear,
behind the embarassment I hide.

Even if I repeat a meditation without exit,
in the end if I can only be me

no matter where I fall, I’m still me afterall
when I’ve tied my sneakers, then I’ll go.

When I remember the oath of that day I easilly gave up,
I get irritated and before I know it, I scream out.

Song of Regret now I swear revenge on that naive man in the mirror.

Standing in the crowd, looking at the sky, I realize what’s important to
me, and go insane.

I forgot the gentle song, A song for someone to fill them up with the joy
of loving,
like feeding a tiny flame.

ROMAJI

dare ka ga sukui no te wo kimi ni sashi dashite iru
dakedo ima wa sore ni kizukezu ni iru n darou

shirake muudo no bokura wa mune no naka no doukutsu ni
sumitsuku mamono to taiji shite ikeru ka na

hito fuki de kiesou na hakanai negai
ii kakete nomi konde hazukashiku naru

tamashii no uta kusubutteta terekakushi no ura ni shinobaseta
kakushinhan no koe

deguchi no nai jimonjitou nando kuri kaeshite mo
yappari boku wa boku de shika nai nara

dochira ni koroganda to shite mo sore wa yahari boku darou
kono suniikaa no himo wo musunda nara saa yukou

kantan ni hirefu shita ano hi no chikai
omoi dashite habayukute omowazu sakebu

koukai no uta amaete ita kagami no naka no otoko ni ima
fukushuu wo chikau

gunshuu no naka ni tatte sora wo mireba
taisetsu na mono ni kizuite kuruoshiku naru

yasashii uta wasurete ita dare ka no tame ni
chiisa na hi wo kuberu yo na
ai suru yorokobi ni michi afureta uta
