Shelly- ore wa kogaritsuzukete
Konna toko ni tadoritsuita

Korogaritsuzukeru ore no ikizama wo
Toki ni ha buzama na kakko de sasaeteru

TRANSLATION

Shelly

Shelly, I’ve reached this place tumblin’ around
Shelly, was I too impatient?
I rashly threw it all away but
Shelly, those days were like a dream.
I’m a guy who has lived for the dream but
Shelly, it’s just like you said,
I’m not sure what life is for, dreams or money?
Sometimes you come off lookin’ bad
supporting my lifestyle of tumblin’ around

Shelly, gently scold me
and then hold me tightly
your love surrounds it all

Shelly, when will I be able to crawl to my feet?
Shelly, where must I go, to get where I’m going?
Shelly, I sing for all those I love.

Shelly, what should I do
if I meet someone
in an unfamiliar place
Shelly, I’m a loner
I can’t smile
the way you do
Shelly, if its dreams we’re after
I won’t be afraid of loneliness
Shelly, if you’re living on your own
one mustn’t show the tears, right?

sometimes you hold back the tears
supporting my lifestyle of tumblin’ around

Shelly, I don’t want your pity
cause I’m not a loser
I’ll walk on to the truth.

Shelly, does my singing sound OK?
Does my smile look alright?
It’s not too obsequious is it?
I’m not being misunderstand am I?
Are you still calling me foolish?
Do you still hate me?
Do I deserve your love?
Have I not made a huge mistake?
Am I walking on toward the truth?

Shelly, when will I be able to crawl to my feet?
Shelly, where must I go, to get where I’m going?
Shelly, I sing for all those I love.
