Chihiro Onitsuka & Billys Sandwitches, "I'm With Your Shadow" { kanji / romaji / translation }

Artist: 鬼束ちひろ & BILLYS SANDWITCHES (Chihiro Onitsuka)
Song Title: I'm With Your Shadow
Album: Tricky Sisters Magic Burger
Track Number: 5
Released: 2014
Lyrics By: Chihiro Onitsuka

What a powerful song. Chihiro Onitsuka was one of the first Japanese artists I discovered (nearly 10 years ago!), and she still makes the most incredible music. I'm not entirely sure, but I really feel like this song is about the loss of innocence; trying to keep it with you, even during the darkest times of life. (Note: She said she was inspired by the cover art of Françoise Sagan's novel Bonjour Tristesse (Hello Sadness). The sad young girl on the cover really inspired this song.)

Kanji Romaji English Translation
時計は壊れ出す
木馬の上で周り続けて
反対側の貴方には
いつも届かないの
サガンの小説は
名前を横取って
悲しみよ こんにちは
こんにちは

Dreams last so long
And never was a lie
この手を取って 握りしめて
木馬の上で 揺れ続ける
心臓(こころ)はいつも 貴方のもとで
I'm with your shadow

闇の音(ね)を探ったり
言叶を放り投げたり
爱から爱へと繋げて
悲しみよ こんにちは
こんにちは

Dreams last so long
And never is a lie lie lie
この世を去って 逃げ出して
木馬を降りて 夢に浮かぶ
気持ちはずっと 贵方の中へ
I'm with your shadow

Scream and the earth
回転する想いに
迷子は加速してゆく

Dreams last so long
And never was a lie
この手を取って 握りしめて
木馬の上で 揺れ続ける
心臓(こころ)はいつも 贵方のもとで
I'm with your
I'm with your shadow

I'm with your...
I'm with your shadow
The clocks start to crumble.
Keep rocking on the rocking horse.
I will never be able to reach
the other side of you.
I pick up
Sagan's novel,
“Hello Sadness”...
hello.

Dreams last so long,
and never was a lie.
Take my hand, grasp it tightly.
Keep rocking on the rocking horse.
My heart is always with you.
I'm with your shadow.

Searching for the sound of darkness,
I throw out all the words,
connecting love to love.
“Hello Sadness”...
hello.

Dreams last so long,
and never is a lie, lie, lie.
Leave this world, escape.
Get off the rocking horse, float in a dream.
My feelings are always inside you.
I'm with your shadow.

Scream and the earth...
in the rotating emotions,
a lost child accelerates.

Dreams last so long,
and never was a lie.
Take my hand, grasp it tightly.
Keep rocking on the rocking horse.
My heart is always with you.
I'm with your...
I'm with your shadow.
