Sakamoto Maaya – Peanuts

August 8, 2012

どうやらあなたと私のあいだに新たな展開
どっちが最初の一歩を踏むのかお互い牽制
なんでもないようなことばがなんだかとっても嬉しい
のらりくらり ひらりふわり ふたりきりです

douyara anata to watashi no aida ni arata na tenkai
docchi ga saisho no ippo fumu no ka o-tagai kensei
nandemo nai you na kotoba ga nandaka tottemo ureshii
norarikurari hirari fuwari futarikiri desu

Somehow something new has been developing between us
Though we’re each waiting for the other to make the first move
For some reason even meaningless small talk with you makes me happy
The lazy, soft, light time we spend together

聞きたい聞けない ほんとのところは結構繊細
優柔不断なA型気質を今さら反省
どうでもいいけどそろそろお腹がすいてきませんか
もどかしいな それもいいな 恋人未満

kikitai kikenai honto no tokoro wa kekkou sensai
yuujuufudan na A-kei kishitsu wo imasara hansei
dou demo ii kedo sorosoro onaka ga suite kimasen ka
modokashii na sore mo ii na koibito miman

I want to ask, but I can’t ask — our position’s just too delicate
I’m just now reflecting on my indecisive type-A personality
I’m fine with whatever, but won’t you be hungry soon?
It’s frustrating but kind of nice, being not quite lovers

すすみたいような 帰りたいような

susumitai you na kaeritai you na

Do we want to go forward? Do we want to go back?

Monday 満員電車に駆け込み 問題は先送り
Tuesday 午後から予報はどしゃ降り 今度はいつ逢えるかな

Monday man’in densha ni kakekomi mondai wa sakiokuri
Tuesday gogo kara yohou wa doshaburi kondo wa itsu aeru ka na

Monday, I rush to get on a packed train and put off thinking about the problem
Tuesday, the forecast says it’ll pour all afternoon; I wonder when I’ll see you next

帳尻あわせの応急処置でもなんとかなったり
やっつけ仕事が案外ひとから褒められちゃったり
一生懸命やってることほど見返りないのに
人生とは 世の中とは そんなものです

choujiriawase no oukyuushochi demo nantoka nattari
yattsuke shigoto ga angai hito kara homerarechattari
isshoukenmei yatteru koto hodo mikaerinai no ni
jinsei to wa yo no naka to wa sonna mono desu

Combining account balances is a stopgap measure, but I’ll get by somehow
I wasn’t expecting my rush job to be praised by other people
I’m doing my best with no collateral
That’s just how it is, living in this world

どうしてあなたがいいのか私も全然わからない
いつでもどこでもあなたの顔が頭から離れない
なんでも白黒つけなきゃいけないそんな時代でも
好きになるのに理由なんてなくていいんです

doushite anata ga ii no ka watashi mo zenzen wakaranai
itsudemo dokodemo anata no kao ga atama kara hanarenai
nandemo shirokuro tsukenakya ikenai sonna jidai demo
suki ni naru no ni riyuu nante nakute ii n’desu

I don’t even know why I like you
I just can’t stop thinking of your face, everywhere and all the time
Even in this age where everything has to be black and white
Maybe it’s okay to fall in love for no reason

あそびもしごとも ムリしない主義

asobi mo shigoto mo muri shinai shuugi

Whether it’s work or play, my principle is not to overdo it

Wednesday 雑誌 の占い立ち読み 順調な星回り
Thursday 運命の人に会いたい あなたがそうならいいのに
Friday 暮れなずむ 街でため息 青春 ひとりよがり
Weekend 新作映画に行きたい ほんとは毎日逢いたいな
Monday 満員電車に飛び乗り 階段ひとつ飛ばし
Tuesday 恋する乙女になりたい 今度はいつ逢えるかな

Wednesday zasshi no uranai tachiyomi junchou na hoshimawari
Thursday unmei no hito ni aitai anata ga sou nara ii no ni
Friday kurenadzumu machi de tameiki seishun hitoriyogari
Weekend shinsaku eiga ni ikitai honto wa mainichi aitai na
Monday man’in densha ni tobinori kaidan hitotsu tobashi
Tuesday koisuru otome ni naritai kondo wa itsu aeru ka na

Wednesday, I check my horoscope in a magazine — it seems my stars are aligned
Thursday, I want to meet my one true love, and it would be nice if that were you
Friday, I sigh in the darkening town, with the self-satisfaction of youth
Weekend, I want to go see that new movie — really, I want to see you every day
Monday, I jump onto the packed train and leap up the stairs in a single bound
Tuesday, I want to be a girl in love; I wonder when I’ll see you next

(Original lyrics by Sakamoto Maaya.)
