I… actually really enjoyed listening to this song. Now I feel bad for overlooking this album when it came out…


歌詞

あなたは だまされている
ごまかされている でも目は見える
はじまりは いつかわからない
終わることもない 息をするだけ たぶん

あなたは だまされている
ごまかされている でも目は見える
はじまりは いつかわからない
終わることもない 息をするだけ

道路に転がる小さな靴には 誰の物語 月の明かり
小さな子供が靴を探して 道路に飛びこんだ 犬が吠えた

でも渡る 手をあげて その信号の下にいる
あなただけが大人 背は小学生にも満たない

あなたは だまされている
ごまかされている でも目は見える
はじまりは いつかわからない
終わることもない 息をするだけ

楽しくて 笑いそう でも我慢して泣いてみよう
教科書の表紙 良い匂いだね 下校中

息をするだけ たぶん

Translation

You were being deceived.
You were being fooled, yet you could tell.
I don’t know when it all began,
But it will never end. I just breathe. Probably…

You were being deceived.
You were being fooled, yet you could tell.
I don’t know when it all began,
But it will never end. I just breathe.

I tripped over some shoes on the road. Somebody’s story was inside, in the moonlight.
A small child searched for their shoes, leaping onto the road. The dogs were barking.

But I crossed the road and gave you my hand. You were beneath the traffic lights.
You were no taller than a primary school student, but you were an adult. The only one.

You were being deceived.
You were being fooled, yet you could tell.
I don’t know when it all began,
But it will never end. I just breathe.

It looked like you were enjoying yourself, smiling, but you really wanted to cry.
The cover of your textbook has such a good smell. You’re on the way home from school…

I just breathe. Probably…

    1. I must admit, I’m not sure what it’s about either (^_^;)
      If anything, look at it as being like a series of photographs showing scenes from our daily lives. Even if there isn’t an ovearching story, each ‘image’ should make you feel something…

      I guess it’s fitting since Aya’s job is taking photos!
