macaroom’s on my list of groups whose music I want to translate more of. They released a new album in early March 2018, and I’m waiting for some time to free up before I go through and properly translate my favourite tracks from the album!

For now, we have this track, which even received a promotional video. I had it mostly translated back in 2016, but I couldn’t make heads or tails of a sentence, so I let it sit. It sat for too long, but I feel much more confident about it now.


歌詞

旅は気をつけろ
時間はだいたい見てたらいい
手には何を持つ
鞄にも入らないものを

怪獣だって
暴れたくなるくらいの
大変な日に
退屈なんて言ってられない
いつもそうなんでしょう

財布なんて持ってないけど
台風だって通り過ぎてく

空は何色だ
期待して創造すると
時間もまた時間だから
考えなくていいと思う

怪獣だって
暴れたくなるくらいの
大変な日に
退屈なんて言ってられない
いつもそうなんでしょう

財布なんて持ってないけど
台風だって通り過ぎてく

Romanisation

abaretaku naru kurai no
taihen na hi ni
taikutsu nante itterarenai
itsumo sou nan deshou

saifu nante mottenai kedo
taifuu datte toori sugiteku

sora wa naniiro da
kitai shite souzou suru to
jikan mo mata jikan dakara
kangaenakute ii to omou

kaijuu datte
abaretaku naru kurai no

saifu nante mottenai kedo
taifuu datte toori sugiteku

Translation

Take care when travelling.
You should keep track of the time.
What am I holding?
It’s something I can’t even fit in my bag.

On a dreadful day
in which even monsters
would want to go mad,
I’d like to say I’m bored, but I can’t.
Maybe it’s always like that…

I don’t have my purse with me,
But even the typhoon will pass through.

What colour is the sky?
Anticipating it and imagining it
takes hours and hours,
So I think it’s okay not to think it over.

On a dreadful day
in which even monsters
would want to go mad,
I’d like to say I’m bored, but I can’t.
Maybe it’s always like that…

I don’t have my purse with me,
But even the typhoon will pass through.
