Mr.Children, Houkiboshi (Lyric Translate by Centigrade-J Stuff http://www.centigrade-j.com)



Artist: Mr.Children
Title: Houkiboshi (Comet)
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

the sleepless days go on,
my voice gone hoarse
brings down your playful mood
It’s not like I’m exhausted or anything
I struggle to come up with the kindest words I can
you know I’m a tapestry of empty promises, right?
Well I’m gonna use that tapestry to steal the future,
so gimme a hand

I look down out on the city I’m all too familiar with
from the ferris wheel in the old theme park
hey, let’s give a little shout out to the people we were up to today
I found a light in your heart that doesn’t go away
even when I shut my eyes
a comet that gently & silently paints a faint arc
that will stroke your cheek.

I won’t tell you. You already too familiar with it, so I won’t tell you.
the sadness that I speak of will just make more sadness.
I want to know, even still, I want to know
overcome the logical reasons built up around me,
overcome that doldrum
Maybe it’s because I’ve been neglecting to do my stretches lately?
I can’t quite open my heart, it’s clumsy

but, we’re the ones who will shoulder the future, light in the form of man
a comet shining bright that plays with the darkness
can’t find any thign to worry about, don’t fret, let’s go find it
a prayer that lost its way,
that you swore to one day make come true

a light that doesn’t go away, even when I shut my eyes
a prayer left to the night sky.
somewhere out there it shines on, in a place no eyes may lay upon
can’t find anything bad, let’s go looking together
a comet is always gently painting a faint arc
stroking the night
a comet that continues to shine.

nerenai hi ga tsuzuite kasureta boku no koe ga
hashaideru kimi no kimochi wo kumoraseta
betsu ni sore hodo tsukarete ya shinai
naruttake yasashii kotoba awatete sagashite miru
kimi ha shitten darou boku no oofuroshiki wo
ima soitsu de mirai wo nusumu kara saa tetsudatte

furui yuuenchi no kanransha kara minareta machi mioroshi
hora kyou made no bokura ni chiisaku e-ru demo okurou ka
me wo tsubutte mo kienai hikari kimi no kokoro ni mitsuketa
sutto yasashiku awaku ko wo egaite hoho wo nadeteiku houkiboshi

oshienai shirisugiteru kara oshienai
kuchi ni dasu kono kanashimi ha tsugi no kanashimi wo umu darou

shiritai sore demo mada mada shiritai
tsumareta rikutsu wo koete sono taikutsu wo koete

saikin sutorrechi wo okotatteru kara ka naa
umaku hirakenain da kokoro ga gikochi nakute

demo ne bokura ha mirai no ninaite hito no katachi shita hikari
kurayami to jyareatte ha mabushiku kirameku houkiboshi
shinpaigoto bakkari mitsukenai de awatenai de sagashiteikou
itsuka kanarazu kanau tte kimekonde rotou ni mayotta inori

me wo tsubutte mo kienai hikari yozora ni takushita inori
kyou mo dokoka de hikatteru dare no me ni mo furenai basho de
warui koto bakari mitsukenai de bokura issho ni sagasou
zutto yasashiku awaku ko wo egaite yoru wo nadeteiku houkiboshi
hikaritsuzukeru houkiboshi
