Mr Children: Hibiki (Echo)

April 5, 2012

Hibiki (Echo)
Your voice, singing as you sit in the tandem seat
Echoes against my back
It’s a bad, off-key song
But it’s that voice, that echo is my favourite sound

“I put the thing I looked for but could not find
In my pocket”
“Isn’t that what happiness is!?”
Your voice tells me

On my birthday last year we set off firecrackers
And got drunk on the happiness that burst in us
When I walk outside, I hear gunshots
That sound is probably
Echoing sadly through that place

I love you, I love you
Tears are overflowing
For now, I’ll shut away that bloody news in a drawer
And walk with you, like the wind, like a river
Though sometimes I feel like I could be swept away
By the flow of the storm of time

Even when we fight, we make up
I hope it grows deeper like that
Happiness is raining down, filling that place
I’ll gather it up with no greed

I love you, I love you
Pain is coming
My world echoes out to yours once again
Flowing like the wind

ROMAJI

Tandemu shiito ni sawatte utatte iru kimi no koe ga
Senaka goshi ni chiisaku hibiiteru
Choushihazure no hetakuso na uta dakedo
Kono koe da sono hibiki da ichiban suki na oto wa

Mitsukaranakatta sagashimono wa
Poketto ni haittemashita. to
Shiawase nanka osoraku sonna kanji desho!? Tte
Kimi no koe wa oshiete kureru

Kyonen no tanjoubi kurakkaa wo narashite
Haretsu suru yorokobi ni yoishirete ita kedo
Soto wo aruitara juusei ga kikoeru
Ano basho ja sono oto wa
Kanashige ni hibiku darou na

Kimi ga suki de kimi ga suki de
Namida ga koborerun da yo
Chinamagusai nyuusu hitomazu hikidashi ni shimatte
Kaze no you ni kawa no you ni kimi to aruite iku
Toki no arashi ni tama ni nagare ni
Nomikomaresou ni naru kedo

Kenka shitemo nakanaori shite
Souyatte fukamattekeba ii
Shiawase nanka sokorajuu ippai ochiteru kara
Yokubarazu ni hirotte ikou

Kimi ga suki de kimi ga suki de
Setsunasa wa yatte kurun da yo
Boku no sekai wa mata hitotsu kimi to hibikiatte
Kaze no you ni nagarete yuku
Kawa no you ni nagarete yuku
