Mou omae shika mienai – Lyrics and Translation




Mou omae shika mienai

Katarigusa natsu no yume koi nante to warai tobashite mite mo
omae no sugata yakitsuita mama keseya shinaide tsuyogatteru oira
baka da yo sayonara mo umaku iezu
baka da yo koi no naka ochita mama de
sousa ai no kage bakari wo tsukamou toshite
kokoro no kagi wo nakushichimattanda

Dakedo shinjiteokure yo baby baby

baka da yo machi no hikari ni yoishirete
baka da yo fuzake kibun no mama de ita yo
sousa kokoro no kotoba sae mo motanai de

Dakedo shinjiteokure yo baby baby
mawari michi mawari michi shita keredo
shinjite okure yo baby baby
mou omae shika mienai oirasa

TRANSLATION

I can see only you

Even if I try to laugh and dismiss it as a summer dream of love,
I’m only bluffing. The image of you is etched in my mind and I won’t let it fade.
What a fool, I can’t even say goodbye.
What a fool, still in love.
You see, while I was chasing the mere shadow of love
I ended up losing the key of my heart.

But please, believe me, baby
even if I messed everything up
please, believe me baby
I can see only you.

Even if I tried to replace love with a little money and a cold heart,
I already knew that would make me lonely.
I’m just helpless and bluffing.
What a fool, getting drunk on the city lights.
What a fool, I still felt like messing around.
You see, I didn’t even know the words for my feelings
so I brought sadness to your heart.

But please, believe me, baby
even if I messed everything up
please, believe me baby
I can see only you.
