Mr Children: Image

April 5, 2012

Image

How long had my eyes been closed?
As I picture you
Your smile, every bit of you, is my private paradise

I’ll spend my days
Picturing you enjoying life
Yeah, as I hold on to everything I see

The quietly surging sea, the wind ruffling the curtains
The blue sky that stretches out forever, children’s laughter
The warmth of your hand, the way we die and are reborn and life goes on
Love

What’s important to us
Is always right there before our eyes
If we can walk
Without stepping on them or kicking them away
Then we can reach out a hand to a single strand of light
From a gap in our trembling hearts
But time always rushes by
And at some point the meaning of life
Gets lost in fights

We’re on a diving board; whether we like it or not
We’re spurred forward and fall
Souls on the verge of drowning, we send up a splash
We come up gasping for breath
But

I’ll spend my days
Picturing you enjoying life
Yeah, as I hold on to everything I see

ROMAJI

Dore kurai me wo tsubutte itarou?
Kimi wo omoiukabenagara
Sono egao ga sono subete ga boku dake no rakuen

Tanoshiku ikite yuku image wo
Fukuramashite kurasou yo
Saa me ni utsuru subete no koto wo dakishimenagara

Shizuka ni uneru umi kaaten wo yurasu kaze
Doko mademo tsuzuku aozora kodomo no waraigoe
Kimi no te no nukumori shi to saise wo kurikaesu inochi
Ai

Taisetsu na mono wa itsu datte
Me no mae ni korogatteru
Funzukenai you ni ketobasanai you ni
Aruite ikeru nara
Yure ugoku kokoro no hazama de
Hitosuji no hikari ni te wo kazasu kedo
Jidai wa itsu demo isogiashi de
Ikite yuku koto no imi wa
Arasoiau koto ni itsuka surikawatteku

Tobikomidai no ue bokura wa iyaou naku
Senaka wo osare ochitekun da
Oboresou na tamashii mizushibuki wo agete
Iki taedae minamo wo kaku
Keredo

Tanoshiku ikite yuku image wo
Fukuramashite kurasou yo
Saa me ni utsuru subete no koto wo dakishimenagara
