Shokugeki no Soma – Spice

1 Comment

Tokyo Karan Koron, Shokugeki no Soma ED

I can’t remember the last time I’ve felt this excited about a new release.

EDIT 2015-06-09: Updated to full version.

Spice
Lyrics: Ichiro
Composition / Arrangement: Tokyo Karan Koron
Performance: Tokyo Karan Koron

It would be so much better to give up,
My thoughts are telling me to just quit,
And yet I can’t even run away,
Swaying back and forth, back and forth.

Because I’m not confident,
I can’t express my true self,
And then I lose confidence, in a spiral,
‘Round and around, ’round and around.

But now we’ve met each other,
So I won’t lose sight anymore.

As long as there are smiles,

We don’t need anything,
No luxurious dishes
Or showy decorations,
Don’t need any of that.

Let’s gather around the table,
Garnishing
With yesterday’s mistakes
And tomorrow’s fears.

Hey, we don’t need anything,
No refined seasonings
Or fancy presentation,
Don’t need any of that.

So even if the tears
Taste salty,
In the end,

If you can always laugh,
That’s spice.

My feelings don’t follow through,
I end up standing still,
But tomorrow never waits for me.
My heart’s beating fast, beating fast.

Palms pressed together hard enough to hurt,
I suppress the trembling of my hands.
I wish I could move on forward as quickly and steadily
As the pounding in my chest.

Let’s cry without holding back
And laugh without holding back.

If we’re together,

We don’t need anything,
No fake smiles –
I don’t need this act of bravado
Anymore.

Let’s fold them up and make them small,
Leaving our weakness and our complaints behind
At the back of the shelf.

Hey, we don’t need anything,
Not that aroma
Or some impossible color,
Don’t need any of that.

So even if it’s not enough
To leave things as ingredients,
Underneath everything,

If you can always laugh…

In every crowd,
I was alone,
But now, even if I’m on my own,
I’m not lonely at all.

As long as there are smiles,

We don’t need anything,
No luxurious dishes
Or showy decorations, don’t need any of that.

Let’s gather around the table,
Garnishing
With yesterday’s mistakes
And tomorrow’s fears.

Hey, we don’t need anything,
No refined seasonings
Or fancy presentation,
Don’t need any of that.

So even if the tears
Taste salty,
In the end,

If you can always laugh,
If you can laugh,
With the people you hold dear,
If you can laugh,
Above all else,

That’s spice.

スパイス
作詞:いちろー
作曲・編曲:東京カランコロン
歌:東京カランコロ

あきらめちゃっていいのに
やめちゃえって思うのに
逃げ出すことさえできなくて
フラフラ、フラフラ

自信が無くてそのせいで
自分自身も出せなくて
自信無くしてスパイラル
グルグル、グルグル

でも出逢えたから
もう見失わないよ

笑顔があれば、

いらない何も
豪華な品も
派手な飾りも、
いらないから

食卓囲もう
昨日のミスも
不安な明日も
添えて

ねぇ、いらない何も
凝った味付けも
シャレた盛り付けも、
いらないから

涙の味はもう
しょっぱいとしても
最後にいつも

笑えたら
それがスパイス

気持ちが着いて行かなくて
立ち止まってしまうのに
明日は待ってくれなくて
ハラハラ、ハラハラ

痛いくらい掌合わせて
震える手ぐっとおさえて
どきどき、胸の速さで
どんどん、進めたらいいな

思いきり泣いて
思いきり笑おう

一緒にいれば

いらない何も
ウソの笑顔も
強がりならもう、
いらないから

小さくたたもう
弱さもグチも
棚の奥にでも、置いて

ねぇ、いらない何も
その香り付けも
無理な色付けも、
いらないから

素材のままじゃもう
足りないとしても
飾らずいつも

笑えたら

どんな人混みでも
ひとりだったけど
今はひとりだとしても、
孤独なんかじゃない

笑顔があれば、

いらない何も
豪華な品も
派手な飾りも、いらないから

食卓囲もう
昨日のミスも
不安な明日も
添えて

ねぇ、いらない何も
凝った味付けも
シャレた盛り付けも、
いらないから

涙の味はもう
しょっぱいとしても
最後にいつも

笑えたら、
笑えたら、
大切な人と
笑えたら、
何よりも、

それがスパイス
