Mr Children: Koe

April 4, 2009

Koe

There were no words
There wasn’t even a melody
And to hell with the rhythm
It rose in my throat.
there was uncertainty.
And I was on the verge of screaming my head off.

all over town
spilling from the speakers
but I’m looking for a song that is just right for you.

(Yeah)

I used to hate it
It was just too embarrassing
but I wanted someone to like me
I couldn’t sing in falsetto
I was bad at harmonizing
but still I wanted to sing three notes lower

sometimes it hurts
sometimes it’s pleasing
I want to nestle up close to the music you make

(Yeah)

There were no words
There wasn’t even a melody
And to hell with the rhythm
It was locked in my heart
There was uncertainty
I needed to see you madly

It doesn’t really matter if it sounds good
it doesn’t matter if your voice gives out
someone is waiting for your voice, ready to accept it.
