ミドリ – 都会のにおい。

I love my friends.
Expecially those who introduce me to amazing bands like Midori.
This band is absolutely crazy and I’m really willing to post more by them.
Starting off with my favourite song by them, 都会のにおい。, which is also one of the most “different” they made.
Saddest thing about this band I’ve only recently discovered (and fell in love with) is that they broke up some years ago, so it seems I’m a bit late for the party.
And that’s a shame, I saw a live show by them two times on youtube and I feel like I could watch it forever.
That aside, it’s an unique band that everyone should listen to. Most of they’re song are absolutely crazy / aggressive / violent, this one is really soothing, calming, sweet and melancholic.
I think I’ll stick with them for a while, so next posts will be about them too.
You’ll know what I’m talking about by then.
For now, enjoy this beautiful piece of music.
PS: This song reminded me of my days spent in Arakawa. The picture I used made me remember that scenery I can’t erase from my mind.

ミドリ – 都会のにおい。

「壊したい」と言って、造りあげたものを
「なんにもいらない」って、君は駆けてくんだ
逃げ出せない現状 このままじゃあ負けそう
何もかも捨てて 田舎で暮らそうか

“kowashitai” to itte, tsukuri ageta mono o
“nan ni mo iranai” tte, kimi wa kakete kunda
nigedasenai genjou kono mama jaa makesou
nanimo kamo sutete inaka de kurasou ka

“I want to break them” – you said to what I created for you
“I don’t need any of this” – you said as you ran away
But that’s a state I can’t escape from, if I keep it this way I’ll just lose
Should I just throw away everything I have and start living in the countryside?

ひとまず眠ろう
家路についたら 熱を溶かしはじめながら 声は涸れ落ちる

hitomazu nemurou
ieji ni tsuitara netsu o tokashi hajime nagara koe wa kareochiru

For now, let’s just sleep;
And when I’ll reach my way home, as my fever melts away, my voice will dry up and fall along with it

答えをたどれど 夢もまた夢で
自分を殺して己に気付いた
純粋なものなどありゃあしないのかい
そしたら怖いよ さよなら僕の夢

kotae o tadoredo yume mo mata yume de
jibun o koroshite onore ni kidzuita
junsui na mono nado arya a shinai no kai
soshitara kowai yo sayonara boku no yume

Tracing off an answer, leaving once more my dreams into dreams,
I realized my own existence by killing me;
Is it true that something pure doesn’t exist, I wonder?
If that’s true, it’s scary; Farewell, my dreams

かまわず歩こう ひだまりふわふわ
涙が乾き あなたの事さえ忘れてしまう

kamawazu arukou hidamari fuwa fuwa
namida ga kawaki anata no koto sae wasurete shimau

But I’ll keep on walking without caring about anything, the sunny spots are so airy –
I’ll wipe my tears off so I’ll end up forgetting about you too

帰ろう。今すぐ。誰も気にとめず。
あなたと2人、息を殺し、生きていたいだけ。

kaerou. ima sugu. daremo ki ni tomezu.
anata to futari, iki o koroshi, ikiteitai dake.

Let’s go back home. Right now. Without caring about anyone.
Me and you, the two of us, we were just living while holding our breaths.

「壊したい」と言って。

“kowashitai” to itte.

“I want to break them” – yet you said it.

I'm a 23 y.o. italian guy, I have a degree in japanese language & culture and I'm currently advancing in my studies. I love music but I'm too self-destructive to attempt to produce it myself. Sometimes I gaze at my shoes and think it's a nice genre. Mainly translating japanese music lyrics (Touhou / doujin / indie / etc) and Gaki no Tsukai clips (worked with Team Gaki too). 宜しくお願いしマスタースパーク。
