la la larks – self (demo)

la la larks

la la larks is a band that came out of School Food Punishment’s breakup – it includes vocalist Yumi Uchimura from the band itself, along with Ryou Eguchi, the band’s sound producer, among others.

So, here we are. I caved and decided to try transcribing the song by ear (=耳コピ), and I think I got most of it down. There are probably at least a few words that are wrong, though; I’ll edit when we see an official release.

That said, the theme certainly fits with what I think I know. ; _ ;

la la larks

I just realized that at some point I’d tumbled down.
It feels as though I’ve always been there.
Yesterday waves its arm at me, without a word,
Far in the distance.

The world is already changing at high speed,
I’m chasing after it from behind.

I’m alright with a life of chaotic days.
I’ve made my decision – I won’t stand in place.
Right now, the me of the future
Must be looking at a tomorrow that I’ve never seen.

“That place will be the end for you.”
Softly, someone whispers in my ear.
The little hint that I’d just caught hold of
Slips through my fingers.

This reality is my everything.
It is what it is – just have to move forward.

I’m alright with a life of chaotic days.
I’ve made my decision – I won’t hesitate anymore.
If I take all of my useless self
And break it off, I think I’ll be able to run again.

I’m alright with a life of chaotic days.
I’ve made my decision – I won’t stand in place.
Right now, the me of the future
Must be looking at a tomorrow that I’ve never seen.

Kidzukeba korogeochiteta
Zutto   soko ni ita ka no you ni
Te wo furu kinou   koe mo kakezu ni
Haruka kanata

Mou supiido de kawaru sekai
Sono senaka oikakeru kara

Sanzan na mainichi mo daijoubu
Kimeta nda   tachidomaranai yo
Mirai no boku ni wa ima
Mieteru ndeshou mita   koto nai ashita ga

Kimi wa soko de owari da yo
Sotto   dareka mimiuchi suru
Tsukamikaketeta chiisana hinto
Surinuketeku

Kono genjitsu ga boku no subete
Ari no mama tada susumeba ii

Sanzan na mainichi mo daijoubu
Kimeta nda   mou mayowanai yo
Dame na jibun ga sou zenbu
Wakaretara mata hashireru ki ga suru

Sanzan na mainichi mo daijoubu
Kimeta nda tachidomaranai yo
Mirai no boku ni wa ima
Mieteru ndeshou   mita koto nai ashita ga

気づけば転げ落ちてた
ずっと そこにいたかのように
手を振る昨日 声も掛けずに
遥か彼方

もうスピードで変わる世界
その背中追いかけるから

散々な毎日も大丈夫
決めたんだ 立ち止まらないよ
未来の僕には今
見えてるんでしょう 見たことない明日が

君はそこで終わりだよ
そっと 誰か耳打ちする
掴みかけてた小さなヒント
すり抜けてく

この現実が僕の全て
ありのままただ進めばいい

散々な毎日も大丈夫
決めたんだ もう迷わないよ
ダメな自分がそう全部
別れたらまた走れる気がする

散々な毎日も大丈夫
決めたんだ 立ち止まらないよ
未来の僕には今
見えてるんでしょう 見たことない明日が
