Life – Lyrics and Translation




LIFE

Toki wo kezuru heya de kokoro wo tokashita
kawaite ita keredo terebi to hanaseta
Juwaki goshi no kanojo wo dakishime naita
Kore ga genjitsu nara boku wa nani wo ubai
ubawareru no daro mo wakaranai

Kotae nado nakute ii sono wake wa
dare mo mina yasuragi no hajimari ni ikiru koto

Kimi wo shinjitemita yume wo miru tame ni
mimi wo sumashite mita uso wo kesu tame ni
Fuan no ue ni kimi wo kasanete daita
Imi wo nakushita boku no omoi kakikeshi
boku ni seowaseru ai sono tsumi wo

Sabaku no ga kimi to iu kami naraba
nani wo sute nanno tame aisu no ga ikiru koto

Kotae nado nakute ii sono wake wa
dare mo mina yasuragi no hajimari ni ikiru koto
ikiru koto… ikiru koto…

TRANSLATION

Life

I melted my soul in a room where time gets eroded
My throat was dry but still I was able to speak to the TV
Through the phone I embraced her as I cried
If this is reality, then am I seizing at something…
or is something being taken away from me…? I don’t know anymore.

It’s okay if there’s no answer. The reason is that
for everyone, life begins with stillness of mind.

I tried to believe in you, so that I could dream
I tried to listen closely, to erase the lies.
Through the angst, I covered your body with mine, holding you
to drown the feeling of having lost all meaning.
For the love you have saddled me with, that sin…

…if it will be judged by the God you are to me [then it will be fine]

What will you forsake? And what for? To love is to live.

It’s okay if there’s no answer. The reason is that
for everyone, life begins with stillness of mind.
Life… Life…
