Okuda Miwako – Habataite Tori wa Kieru

August 7, 2012

Habataite Tori wa Kieru – はばたいて鳥は消える – Taking Flight, The Bird Vanishes

ぼくの頭には穴がひとつ 冷たい風が吹き拔ける
ほんとうなんだ 信じてよ
引き裂かれ 突き刺され 切り取られ 押し潰され
磨り減らされ 打ち碎かれ

boku no atama ni wa ana ga hitotsu tsumetai kaze ga fukinukeru
hontou nan’da shinjite yo
hikisakare tsukisasare kiritorare oshitsubusare
suriherasare uchikudakare

There’s a hole in my head; the cold wind blows through it
It’s true, believe me
Torn down, pierced, cut out, crushed
Worn down, smashed

膝を握り締めて痛みに堪えろ 泣くために聲を膨らますな
縋り付くために聲を振り絞るな 聲を吞め! 聲を吞め! 聲を吞め!
自由は孤獨のなかにある 自由は孤獨のなかにしかない
ぼくは自由を歌う ぼくは孤獨を歌う

hiza o nigirishimete itami ni taero naku tame ni koe o fukuramasuna
sugaritsuku tame ni koe o furishiboruna koe o nome! koe o nome! koe o nome!
jiyuu wa kodoku no naka ni aru jiyuu wa kodoku no naka ni shika nai
boku wa jiyuu o utau boku wa kodoku o utau

Gripping your knees, suppress your pain — don’t raise your voice to cry
Don’t strain your voice to hold on — swallow your voice! Swallow your voice! Swallow your voice!
Freedom is found in loneliness — freedom can only be found in loneliness
I sing of freedom, I sing of loneliness

はばたいて鳥は消える 歌って聲は消える
青空に吸い込まれて消える
いつかぼくの消息が 歌のかたちで途絕えるとしても
ぼくは歌う ぼくがぼくであるために
ぼくは歌う ぼくがきみに紛れないために

habataite tori wa kieru utatte koe wa kieru
aozora ni suikomarete kieru
itsuka boku no shousoku ga uta no katachi de todaeru to shite mo
boku wa utau boku ga boku de aru tame ni
boku wa utau boku ga kimi ni magirenai tame ni

Taking flight, the bird vanishes; its singing voice vanishes
Swallowed by the blue sky, it vanishes
Even if someday my letter in the form of a song comes to an end
I will sing, so I can be myself
I will sing, so I can’t be mistaken for you

風が仕掛けた戰爭 空は鬥う意志を失くした
雲は降參した 海は嘆くばかり
ぼくは死に損ない 部屋のなかは恐怖に佔領された
なにかが崩れる音がする
拳を握り締めて踏みとどまれ 逃げるためにいいわけを搜すな
救けを求めるために聲を涸らすな 聲を吞め! 聲を吞め! 聲を吞め!
雨のように絕望が降る 雨のように降りやむことはない
ぼくは雨を歌う ぼくは絕望を歌う

kaze ga shikaketa sensou sora wa tatakau ishi o nakushita
kumo wa kousan shita umi wa nageku bakari
boku wa shi ni makenai heya no naka wa kyoufu ni senryou sareta
nanika ga kuzureru oto ga suru
kobushi o nigirishimete fumitodomare nigeru tame ni iiwake o sagasuna
tasuke o motomeru tame ni koe o karasuna koe o nome! koe o nome! koe o nome!
ame no you ni zetsubou ga furu ame no you ni furiyamu koto wa nai
boku wa ame o utau boku wa zetsubou o utau

The sky has lost its will to fight in the war waged by the wind
The clouds have given in, the sea only grieves
I won’t lose to death, though my room has been captured by fear
Something sounds as though it’s crumbling
Clench your fist and stand your ground — don’t look for excuses to run away
Don’t exhaust your voice calling for help– swallow your voice! Swallow your voice! Swallow your voice!
Despair falls like the rain; unlike the rain, it won’t stop falling
I sing of the rain, I sing of despair

ひきがねを引いて銃聲は消える 歌って聲は消える
青空に吸い込まれて消える
時の彼方に消える

hikigane o hiite juusei wa kieru utatte koe wa kieru
aozora ni suikomarete kieru
toki no kanata ni kieru

Pulling the trigger, the gunshot vanishes; its singing voice vanishes
Swallowed by the blue sky, it vanishes
It vanishes to the other side of time

泣き明かした夜を込めて 息を殺した朝を込めて
夜ならば夜のように 朝ならば朝のように 歌え!

nakiakashita yoru o komete iki o koroshita asa o komete
yoru naraba yoru no you ni asa naraba asa no you ni utae!

Putting into your song the nights you cried until dawn and the mornings which left you breathless
Like the night when it is night, and like the day when it is day, sing!

はばたいて鳥は消える 歌って聲は消える
青空に吸い込まれて消える
いつかぼくの消息が 歌のかたちで途絕えるとしても
ぼくは歌う ぼくがぼくであるために
ぼくは歌う ぼくがきみに紛れないために

habataite tori wa kieru utatte koe wa kieru
aozora ni suikomarete kieru
itsuka boku no shousoku ga uta no katachi de todaeru to shite mo
boku wa utau boku ga boku de aru tame ni
boku wa utau boku ga kimi ni magirenai tame ni

Taking flight, the bird vanishes; its singing voice vanishes
Swallowed by the blue sky, it vanishes
Even if someday my letter in the form of a song comes to an end
I will sing, so I can be myself
I will sing, so I can’t be mistaken for you

(Original lyrics by Yuu Miri.)
