I dedicated this post for my favourite song in ITOWOKASHI’s first official mini album: ‘Tamashii no Yukue‘. Need I say it again? (I’m such a sucker for this kind of song!).

A sad song with sad melody. How it resonates in your ears, starting quietly… And suddenly makes your throat hurts, your eyes burning… I want to shout this feeling too, to the sky full of stars, crying my eyes out. Why. Why. Why… Near the end of the song, I am already gulping.

Do you understand what I feel?

Disclaimer: I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH!!! and no, I’m not ITOWOKASHI. This song belongs to their respective owners.

Japanese lyric

Romanisation

ゆうぐれの帰り道 たそがれ染まる この世界に
まち明かり うつし出す おいてかれた 自分を見た
Yuugure no kaerimichi… tasogare somaru, kono sekai ni
Machi akari, utsushidasu… oitekareta, jibun wo mita.
どこかに 忘れたよ かなしいことや うれしいこと
それでも 忘れない おわらせてはいけないこと
Doko ka ni wasureta yo… kanashii koto ya ureshii koto
Soredemo wasurenai, owarasete wa ikenai koto
かぎりある命から とけだした言葉を
つむいで魂は行く 果てなきそらのみちを
Kagiri aru inochi kara, tokedashita kotoba wo
Tsumui de tamashii wa yuku, hatenaki sora no michi wo
しあわせの隙間から すこし見えるカゲロウとか
涙につつまれた 琥珀色のきもちだとか
Shiawase no sukima kara, sukoshi mieru KAGEROU toka
Namida ni tsutsumareta, kohaku-iro no kimochi da toka
だきしめて歩き出す 永遠のときを
寂しさもうすれゆき とうめいな色に変わる
Dakishimete arukidasu, eien no toki wo
Samishisa mo usure yuki, toumeina iro ni kawaru
ああ しまいこんだことも
そっと取り出しているけど
ああ そんなにこわくない
きっと怯えてただけだよ
Aa! Shimaikonda koto mo,
Sotto toridashite iru kedo…
Aa! Sonna ni kowakunai
Kitto obieteta dake da yo.
そうだろう? Sou darou?
もうなにも きこえない 過ぎ行く日々
加速してく
どこまできたのかも わからないな わからないな
Mou nani mo kikoenai. Sugiyuku hibi kasokushiteku
Doko made kita no kamo, wakaranai na, wakaranai na…
そらもように隠された よぞらの先の先に
数えきれぬたましい そっと歩いている だきしめたい
Soramoyou ni kakusareta, yozora no saki no saki ni
Kazoe kirenu tamashii… sotto aruite iru, dakishimetai!
かぎりある命から とけだした言葉を
つむいで魂は行く 果てなきそらのみちを
Kagiri aru inochi kara, tokedashita kotoba wo…
Tsumui de tamashii wa yuku, hatenaki sora no michi wo…

  1. KKBOX Malaysia for the Japanese lyric, here. Thank you!! I like to visit KKBOX because the interface is so simple and neat… the font used there is so straightforward and thin; it’s also easy to navigate around. The colour is also calming… fuwafuwa…
  2. Jisho for helping me understand the meaning at least a little bit.
  3. rainofashe on YouTube for uploading Kendo Chourai’s crossfade with english subtitle. Thank you so much!! *singing* Seriously, the crossfade is so funny! They keep fooling around and not introducing the song at all. MAJI de KASHITAROU-SAN TO LEFTY-SAN MO, MOU!!!! -____- Even though it is a sad song :v
    They are seriously making fun of their own crossfade. Their laughter, they’re making both my stomach and heart HURT damnit D’X But all in all, I love hearing them joking around. Aaahhh.. I love Itowokashi so muchh!!!
