Sakurai Atsushi – Neko

December 26, 2015

Neko – 猫 – Cat

おはよう、と言っても 君はまだ眠っている
どんな夢見ているの
ありがとう言わせて こんな時悪いけど
灰色の雨の朝

ohayou, to itte mo kimi wa mada nemutte iru
donna yume mite iru no
arigatou iwasete konna toki warui kedo
haiiro no ame no asa

“Good morning,” I say, but you’re still asleep
What are you dreaming of?
Let me say “thank you,” though this isn’t a good time
On this grey, rainy morning

愛って何 愛は君 君のことさ 言葉じゃもうばかみたい

ai tte nani ai wa kimi kimi no koto sa kotoba ja mou baka mitai

What is love? You are love, it’s you–though it sounds foolish when I put it into words

誰もみな 涙流すだけじゃね
誰もみな 笑えるでしょう

daremo mina namida nagasu dake ja ne
daremo mina waraeru deshou

Each and every one of us only sheds tears, don’t we?
But each and every one of us can smile, I think

おやすみ、と言っても 明日また会えるかな
楽しい夢を見て
ありがとう言わせて 今じゃなきゃダメなんだ
やまない雨はない

oyasumi, to itte mo ashita mata aeru ka na
tanoshii yume o mite
arigatou iwasete ima ja nakya DAME nan’da
yamanai ame wa nai

“Good night,” I say, but can we see each other tomorrow?
I wish you pleasant dreams
Let me say “thank you,” because it has to be said now
There’s no rain that won’t clear up

愛って何 愛は君 君のことさ 僕らがそう 愛だろう

ai tte nani ai wa kimi kimi no koto sa bokura ga sou ai darou

What is love? You are love, it’s you–yes, we are love

誰もみな 幸せにならなきゃね
誰もみな 生まれては死ぬ

daremo mina shiawase ni naranakya ne
daremo mina umarete wa shinu

Each and every one of us has to find happiness, don’t we?
Each and every one of us is born and one day dies

猫が見つめる ガラスの瞳 無邪気に鳴いている 泣いている

neko ga mitsumeru GARASU no hitomi mujaki ni naite iru naite iru

The cat stares with glass eyes, innocently crying out, crying…

誰もみな 涙流すだけじゃね
誰もみな 笑えるでしょう
誰もみな 幸せにならなきゃね
誰もみな 生まれては死ぬ それまで

daremo mina namida nagasu dake ja ne
daremo mina waraeru deshou
daremo mina shiawase ni naranakya ne
daremo mina umarete wa shinu sore made

Each and every one of us only sheds tears, don’t we?
But each and every one of us can smile, I think
Each and every one of us has to find happiness, don’t we?
Each and every one of us is born and one day dies, but until then…

(Original lyrics by Sakurai Atsushi.)
