元気 (Genki) – Akanishi Jin (LANDS)

13 Nov

From movie “Bandage”, LANDS is the band portrayed in the movie. This song is so great in its original version, but there’s an acapella/acoustic version in the movie played by Akanishi Jin that it’s just amazing. I love it… you can actually hear and feel the anguish in Jin’s interpretation. This is one of those fictitious, in-movie bands that I wish could be real! If only to hear Akanishi Jin’s voice in rock songs… and of course, to see him^^

KANJI

見上げる空はいつも ただ青いだけじゃない

人はいつもおまえに 優しいだけじゃない

嵐の夜は ああ泣きそうになるんだよ

もしもあなたがそばに いてくれたなら

動き始めた街は おまえがいなくても

まるで知らん顔で 回り続けてゆくだろう

自分だけ止まって 焦りだけ飲み込んでゆく

だからあなたがそばに いてくれたなら

いてくれたなら

ああ 負けそうにもなる

へこたれそうになる

元気出せよ ほら

元気 元気を

おまえの声で 歌いだせ

この世界はおまえのものだ

おまえだけのものだ

道で拾った財布を 中身をそのままに

川に捨ててみたら何かが 壊れそうになったよ

夕暮れの空は ああ泣きそうになるんだよ

もしもあなたがそばに いてくれたなら

いてくれたなら

ああ 許せないだろう

引き下がれないだろう

元気出せよ ほら

元気 元気を

お前の声で 歌いだせ

この世界はおまえのものだ

おまえだけのものだ<

大人は何がしてはくれない

何も教えてはくれないよ

いま おまえはおまえの目で

この世界を見るしかない

もしその目はつぶれたなら

耳の澄ませばいい

鳥のさえずり

木々のざわめき

地下鉄や車のノイズ

ビルの間を吹き抜けて行く風の音を

その耳をうばわれたら

まだ手のひらがある

手のひらで世界を感じて

いや 世界なんていらない

あなただけそばにいてくれたら

それだけでいい

手のひらで指の先で

あなたの頬にふれたい

ああ 夢の中でも

あなたに会いたい

どんな言葉より その気持ちを

信じられるのが おまえの希望

ああ 負けそうにもなる

へこたれそうになる

元気出せよ ほら

元気 元気を

おまえの声で 歌いだせ

この世界はおまえのものだ

おまえだけのものだ

TRANSLATION

The
sky you see above won’t always be blue

People won’t always be kind to you

On stormy nights you’ll be near tears

If only you could be there –

Even if you’re no longer in this changing town

It will keep on revolving with completely unknown faces
You alone will stop, and swallow up only your impatience

So if only you could be there

If you could be there –

Ah, you’ll feel like you’re about to lose

You’ll be about to lose heart

Cheer up, come on

Cheer up

Sing out with your voice

This world is yours

Yours alone

When you threw a wallet you picked up on the street, untouched, into the river

Something seemed about to break

The sky at twilight will almost bring you to tears

If only you could be there

If you could be there –

Ah, you can’t forgive, can you?

You can’t withdraw, can you?

Cheer up, come on

Cheer up

Sing out with your voice

This world is yours

Yours alone

Adults won’t do anything for you

They won’t teach you anything

All there is to do now is to see this world with your own eyes

If those eyes break down

Listen carefully

To the chirping of the birds

The rustling of the trees

The noise of the cars and the subway

The sound of the wind blowing between the tall buildings

If those ears are taken away

You still have the palms of your hands

Feel the world with your palms

No, you don’t need the world

If you alone could be there

That would be enough

With my palms, with the tips of my fingers

I want to touch your cheek

Ah, I want to see you

If only in a dream

Your wish is that those feelings, over any words,

Be believed

Ah, you’ll feel like you’re about to lose

You’ll be about to lose heart

Cheer up, come on

Cheer up

Sing out with your voice

This world is yours

Yours alone.
