la la larks – Self

la la larks, Culture Vulture

This translation is part of the School Food Punishment lyrics project, under the la la larks branch.

EDIT 2017-08-29: Updated the lyrics to a reliable transcription.

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. ; _ ;

lyrics, music & arrangement: la la larks

First thing I knew, I was tumbling 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 changing at breakneck speed,
And 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 go through myself and all that’s wrong with me
And understand it, 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.

lyrics, music & arrangement: la la larks

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 koso 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

lyrics, music & arrangement: la la larks

気付けば転げ落ちてた
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

猛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
ダメな自分こそ 全部
理解れたら 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
