Mr.Children, Houkiboshi (Lyric Translate by Centigrade-J Stuff

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.
