I love this song, TOKYO by YUI. The first time that I heard it back in 2007, it almost bring tears to my eyes...I kid you not! I've never search for the translation before though, but knowing YUI and her songs, I knew that it's got to be something personal based on the way she's singing it and all. This is a cover of the song by me but let me warn you that it's far from perfect. Ack! I lost my breath near the end of the song, thus butchering it (Sorry YUI!). I'm not Japanese, so pardon any mispronunciation that I made guys. Gomen ne! (~.~')
Anyway, here it is.
O, and here is the translation and here is the blog that translates the lyrics for this song!
The day has come for me to leave
this room I’ve been used to living in
I’m still bewildered at this new journey
Inside the bus that’s heading toward the station
I emailed my friend
I tried to call on the morning platform
But somehow, I felt that it was different
I came carrying an old guitar
I’ve placed out all of the pictures
I let something go and take something
I wonder if it’s that kind of repetition?
This show of courage continues even in my
If I became cowardly, I would be cut off there
Inside the train that began to go
Just a little bit, I was moved to tears
This town that continues outside the window
I wished that it wouldn’t change
The person who gave me the old guitar
had said that Tokyo is scary
I’ve already stopped searching for an answer
It’s fine being full of mistakes
The red evening glow was cut off at the building
even if I endure the tears
Each journey that comes with the next morning
has its doubtful places, right?
I can’t simply choose the right thing
At least I understand that
Have no idea who YUI is? Well, don't fret! You can find all you need to know about her here! ^.^
She's wonderful and very very very talented!
