This is such relaxing music. The lyrics perfectly match the mood of the song – the series of short images they present makes me think of the flashes of light you sometimes see during REM sleep.


歌詞

動く時計
遊ぶフォーク
冷たい壁

落書く幻
どろり混ざる
メロウに似た
三原色
デタラメたち
デタラメたち
割れた鏡
欠けた鍵と
開かないドア
こわくないよ

頬っぺの跡
ナトリウムの
海を泳ぐ
瞼、ひらく
きみと踊る

綿のお手々
離さなくちゃ
帰らなくちゃ
帰らなくちゃ
Ah…

スリーピン・ドリーミン
ねむって
Ah…

クラッピン・ステッピン
つまさき
Ah…

モーニン・コーリン
みつけた。

ねえ まだ そこで見てて
ねえ、ねえ。
醒めるまではずっと
ねえ、お願いよ。

Ah…

帰らなくちゃ

Translation

A moving clock…
An unused fork…
A cold wall…

A scrawling dream (1)
mixes together, sludge-like.
It is trichromatic,
resembling a mellow colour.
They are haphazard.
They are haphazard.
The mirror is broken.
They key is missing
and the door will not open.
I’m not scared.

Traces lie on my cheeks.
I swim in a sea
of sodium.
I open my eyes
and I dance with you.

I must let go
of these cotton hands.
I must head home.
I must head home.
Ah…

Sleeping, dreaming.
I sleep.
Ah…

Clapping, stepping
toes.
Ah…

Morning, calling.
I found you.

Hey, keep looking at me from over there.
Come on!
Watch me right until I wake up.
Come on, I’m begging you!

Ah…

I must return home.


Translator’s note

(1) 幻 (maboroshi, illusion) is written, but ゆめ (yume, dream) is sung.
