Donuts Shop – Lyrics and Translation




Donuts Shop

Ano koro wa boku ga miteita guard rail goshi no tasogare
kimi no iu dodemo ii koto ni kokoro ubawareteta
Sora no iro wo sukoshi dake kuchi ni shitemo honto wa
concrete no machinami ga samishiindayo tte
utsumuita

Boku wa sagashitsuzuketeru

Donuts shop ni nagareru ongaku ni ashi wo tome
kyo no kimi wa nakitai kibun nano to me wo fuseteta
hito ya kuruma no nagare wo jibun no samishisa no yoni miteita
nee bokura no kanjiru koto wa
kore dake no koto nano

Kimi wa sagashitsuzuketeru

Stand no abura-darake no kabe to onaji kurai tasogareta machi
boku wa nandomo tsubuyaita
“honto wa nanimokamo chigaunda”
wakatteyo

Boku wa sagashitsuzuketeru

Mo dorekurai me wo tojite itandaro
nanikamo ga boku no kannen ni yotte yugamerareteiku
soshite sore dake ga boku no shinjitsu da
Itsu hajimari itsu owaru to iu no daro
Yuuhi wa biru no kage ni sukkari kakureteshimatta
Saa mo me wo akete torikakomu subete no monogoto no naka de
shinjitsu wo tsukamunda

TRANSLATION

Donuts Shop

That time I was watching the sunset over the guard rail
my heart taken by something you considered banal.
You said that no matter what color the sky was, in truth
the cityscape made of concrete was a depressing sight
and you cast your head down.

I’ll keep searching.

You stopped in your tracks at the sound of music flowing from the donuts shop.
You lowered your gaze, saying that today you felt like crying,
that the flow of people and cars seemed to mirror your own sadness.
Tell me, is this
the only thing we feel?

You’ll keep searching.

As the city faded into dusk, like an oil-stained wall at the gas station
I kept murmuring:
“In truth, everything is different from what it should be.”
Try to understand!

I’ll keep searching.

For how long have I kept my eyes closed?
Everything is being distorted by my own idealism
and only this is my truth.
When does it starts? When does it end?
The setting sun was being completely eclipsed by the shadow of the buildings.
Come on, it’s time to open our eyes and, amid all of the things surrounding us,
grasp the truth.
