RADWIMPS – Daidarabocchi

1 Comment

RADWIMPS, Zettai Zetsumei

Requested by nanashi.

Not sure what the significance of the title might be, aside from sounding similar to “hitoribocchi” (alone). For any more than that, Google can teach you better than I can.

Listening to this song makes me feel a little less lonely.

Lyrics: Noda Youjirou
Composition: Noda Youjirou
Performance: RADWIMPS

Being alone is lonely, but if everyone is alone,
It doesn’t feel lonely, because we’re not really alone.

“You’re a nice person.” In order to protect that title
That someone gave to me, I desperately tame myself.

But I’m tired of it now. I think I’ll step down.
I can’t be the kind of person who can put things simply.

For at least this tiny space of time that I spend living,
I’ll be fine alone. I’ll be fine.

Being alone is lonely, but if everyone is lonely,
We’re not alone, because we’re not really lonely.

I’m already no good, a failed creation of God.
I wonder where and how I went wrong. Let’s compare each other’s answers.

But wait! What if this world was just a garbage can
That we failed creations and good-for-nothings were thrown into, to begin with?

For at least this tiny space of time that we spend living,
Isn’t it nice to be with someone? Isn’t it nice?

Being alone is lonely, but if everyone is alone,
It doesn’t feel lonely, because we’re not really alone.

Being alone is lonely, but if everyone is lonely,
We’re not alone, because we’re not really lonely.

“Say, who are you, and what kind of person are you?” I realized I was being asked.
When I’m all alone, if I don’t have anyone, I won’t understand anyone.
Am I even living?

Being alone is lonely, but if I become a “two” with you,
I won’t feel lonely. I won’t be alone.

In this world where those who are alone have managed to gather with those who are alone,
There is no loneliness. No one is alone.

No one will ever be alone.

Note:
Regarding the line about becoming two: in the Japanese lyrics, the word is “futaribocchi”, which is a play on “hitoribocchi” (alone), substituting “futari” (“two people”) in the place of “hitori” (“one person”).

Daidarabocchi
Lyrics: Noda Youjirou
Composition: Noda Youjirou

Hitoribocchi wa samishii keredo minna hitoribocchi nara
Samishiku nanka nai   hitoribocchi nanka ja nai kara

“Kimi wa yasashii hito” dareka ni ataerareta sono
Katagaki wo mamoru tame   hisshi ni boku wo kainarasu

Dakedo   mou tsukareta yo   boku wa oriru koto ni shiyou
Hitokoto de ieru you na ningen ni   boku wa narenai

Ikiteru aida no   hon no chotto no jikan kurai
Hitori de daijoubu da yo   daijoubu da yo

Hitoribocchi wa samishii keredo   minna sabishii n nara
Hitoribocchi nanka ja nai   samishiku nanka nai kara

Boku wa mou dame nanda   kamisama no shippaisaku
Doko de nani wo   machigaeta ndarou   kotae awase demo shiyou

Demo matte yo   moshi ka shitara   kono sekai wa hajime kara
Shippaisaku ya   deku no bou no   hourikomareta gomibako

Ikiteru aida no   hon no chotto no jikan kurai
Dareka to ireba ii nja nai   ii nja nai

Hitoribocchi wa samishii keredo   minna hitoribocchi nara
Samishiku nanka nai   hitoribocchi nanka ja nai

Hitoribocchi wa samishii keredo   minna sabishii n nara
Hitoribocchi nanka ja nai   samishiku nanka nai kara

“Tokoro de kimi wa   jaa donna hito?” to tazunerarete kidzuita yo
Hitori dake ja   dareka ga inakya   boku ga dareka mo wakaranai
Boku wa   ikite sae inai ja nai ka

Hitoribocchi wa samishii keredo   kimi to futaribocchi nara
Samishiku nanka nai   hitoribocchi nanka ja nai

Hitoribocchi to hitoribocchi ga   atsumatte dekita kono sekai
Samishii koto nanka nai   hitoribocchi nante inai yo

Hitoribocchi ni nante narenai kara

だいだらぼっち
作詞:野田洋二郎
作曲:野田洋二郎
歌:RADWIMPS

一人ぼっちは寂しいけれど みんな一人ぼっちなら
寂しくなんかない 一人ぼっちなんかじゃないから

「君は優しい人」誰かに与えられたその
肩書きを守るため 必死に僕を飼いならす

だけど もう疲れたよ 僕は降りることにしよう
一言で言えるような人間に 僕はなれない

生きてる間の ほんのちょっとの時間くらい
一人で大丈夫だよ 大丈夫だよ

一人ぼっちは寂しいけれど みんな寂しいんなら
一人ぼっちなんかじゃない 寂しくなんかないから

僕はもうダメなんだ 神様の失敗作
どこで何を 間違えたんだろう 答え合わせでもしよう

でも待ってよ もしかしたら この世界ははじめから
失敗作や でくの坊の 放り込まれたゴミ箱

生きてる間の ほんのちょっとの時間くらい
誰かといればいいんじゃない いいんじゃない

一人ぼっちは寂しいけれど みんな一人ぼっちなら
寂しくなんかない 一人ぼっちなんかじゃないから

一人ぼっちは寂しいけれど みんな寂しいんなら
一人ぼっちなんかじゃない 寂しくなんかないから

「ところで君は じゃあどんな人?」と尋ねられて気付いたよ
一人だけじゃ 誰かがいなきゃ 僕が誰かも分からない
僕は 生きてさえいないじゃないか

一人ぼっちは寂しいけれど 君と二人ぼっちなら
寂しくなんかない 一人ぼっちなんかじゃない

一人ぼっちと一人ぼっちが 集まってできたこの世界
寂しいことなんかない 一人ぼっちなんていないよ

一人ぼっちになんてなれないから
