Shoki no Uta‘ is the last track in Mrs. GREEN APPLE’s album ‘TWELVE’. It is a song of hope, to turn this boring, hurting, shameful day (life) into a better one, a more cheerful, colorful–happy (day) life tomorrow (in the future). However then, when we look back, why is it that those annoying days seems cute and warm? Aah, since the future is unknown, then just forget it. These black days will become happiness someday. So, until then~ /I guess, more or less, it means like that./

SO CUTE! Cute meaning, cute melody… This is also considered one song of theirs that gives off different feelings than what they used to offer in my opinion. Don’t you hear… it’s not THAT rockish for one (haha). What a cute opening; it is somewhat like a children song. And surprisingly, it is a cheerful-warm feeling! What about you?

edit 2017/03/17: I’ve also embedded some fanmade video of this song. It is so cute >.< I wanna hug and dance with them XD about the vocal, I don’t know whether it is their voice or Motoki’s voice that’s changed because the key is changed (like in karaoke’s device, we can turn down or up the key of the original song to adjust to our voice…) I guess it is Motoki’s.

Disclaimer: Shame on me that I do not own it :’)

Japanese lyric

Romaji

あの日の後悔を
食べれてしまえばいいのにな
あの頃にはどうしても
言えなかった2文字もあったっけな
Ano hi no koukai wo
Tabereteshimaeba ii noni na
Ano koro ni wa doushite mo
Ienakatta nimoji mo attakke na
そろそろお腹が空いてきたな
毎日のサイクルはもう飽きた
実は彩られているんだと
気づくのは あと何世紀先だ
Sorosoro onaka ga suite kita na
Mainichi no cycle (SAIKURU) wa mou akita
Jitsu wa irodorarete iru nda to
Kidzuku no wa ato nanseiki saki da
ワタクシのお仕事は
・素材になること
全てになんかなれずに
・一部になること
どうかずっとこの世界を大好きでいてね
朝も来たし夜も来たし変わりないよ
今日もいつもの様に
WATAKUSHI no oshigoto wa
・ sozai ni naru koto
Subete ni nanka narezu ni
・ ichibu ni naru koto
Dou ka zutto kono sekai wo daisuki de ite ne,
Asa mo kitashi yoru mo kitashi kawarinai yo,
Kyou mo itsumo no youni.
good morning, good night
I love you で good-bye
but 離れられない
明日へと庶幾う唄
happyなlifeは素晴らしい
まだ始まったばっかりだ
Good morning, good night
I love you de good bye
But hanarerarenai
Ashita e to koinugau uta
Happy na life wa subarashii
Mada hajimatta bakkari da!
あの日の恥じらいが
可愛く思えてきたんだよ
あの日の温もりを
ずっと感じていたいのにな
Ano hi no hajirai ga
Kawaiku omoete kita nda yo
Ano hi no nukumori wo
Zutto kanjiteitai noni na
汚いけど愛すべきな生き物なら
世間に甘やかされ今、恥をかくとこ
「まるで普段目には見えぬ妖精みたいね」って
気づいてくれたから 未来のために
会いに来たんだよ
Kitanai kedo aisubeki na ikimono nara
Seken ni amayakasare ima, haji wo kakutoko
“Marude fudan me ni wa mienu yousei mitai ne” tte
Kidzuite kureta kara mirai no tame ni
Ai ni kita nda yo
good morning, good night
I love you で glad
「…I don’t know what to say」
お気に入りのシャツで
いっそ幸せになろう
そう 未来へ託そう
Good morning, good night
I love you de glad
“… I don’t know what to say
Oki ni iri no shirt (SYATSU) de
Isso shiawase ni narou
Sou mirai e takusou
good morning, good night
I love you と good-bye
そのぐらいがいいや
明日はわからないから
委ねましょう
Good morning, good night
I love you to good bye
Sono gurai ga ii ya
Ashita wa wakaranai kara
Yudanemashou.
good morning, good night
I love you で good-bye
傷は絶え間ない
お気に入りの服で
今日くらいは幸せになろう
ほら 愛に満ちたこの日々
では また会いましょう
Good morning, good night
I love you de good bye
Kizu wa taemanai
Oki ni iri no fuku de
Kyou kurai wa shiawase ni narou
Hora, ai ni michita kono hibi
Dewa mata aimashou!

Notes: This is my list of mistakes in my attempt of romanising it. (Now, I wonder whether I should just use a header: ‘list of mistakes’, instead of ‘notes’…?)

[…] kanji ~ [–->] my attempt ~ [=] the correct romanization ~ (…) my own comment

  1. [何世紀] -> naoseki = nanseiki
  2. [素材] -> sesai = sozai
  3. [庶幾う] -> koiniu = koinugau (my Japanese keyboard won’t convert the romanisation to those kanji tho; the keyboard is sometimes sucks)
  4. [普段] -> furan = fudan (…)
