“I just need to forgive.”


~Kanji~
零れる日々の色

『うるさい うるさい ほっといてくれよ』って撒き散らして
『寂しい 寂しい 構ってくれ』って顔に書いてあるぜ

ありきたりすぎる色は嫌だって
下書きのまま放っておいたんです
そしたら見事に無色透明で
そのまま色褪せてしまった
頭の中で昔に戻って
帰りの路で一緒に唄った
歌を何度も繰り返している

あの日 言えなかったことを 重ねた嘘を
どうすりゃいいの?どうすりゃいいんだろう
家路の途中で立ち止まった僕を
ただちょっと叱ってそっと青を挿してほしいよ

『おかしい おかしい分かってないよ』って撒き散らして
『バカらしい バカらしい』捨てたフリして 遠目に見ていた

ありきたりすぎる色は嫌だって
手当たり次第に色を混ぜたんです
そしたら見事に真っ黒になって
塗り直しはきかなくなった
頭の中で昔に戻って
君と見た夕陽を思い出した
あの赤より赤は未だにない

あの日できなかったことも零れた日々も
許せばいいよ 許せばいいの
過ちの過去も 重ねた黒も
何回だって 書いて 描いて 直して変わっていくよ

もういいかい?
『まーだだよ』
もういいかい?
『もーいーよ』
昨日を待つのはもうやめた

あの日言えなかったことを 重ねた嘘を
どうすりゃいいの?どうすりゃいいんだろう
家路の途中で立ち止まった僕を
ただちょっと叱ってそっと青を挿してほしいよ

流れない涙も 眠れない夜も
それでもいいよ それでもいいからさ
忘れた頃いつかきっときっと
そっと僕の色になれば

~Translation~

Please do not use this translation for English subbing. Thank you for your understanding.

“Shut up, I don’t want to hear anymore. Just leave me alone.”—I threw my words at you,
but the truth is plainly written on my face: “I’m lonely, so lonely. Keep me company, please.”

I abandoned everything, leaving them as mere sketches,
using the excuse that I don’t want to use the same colors everyone else has used.
Before long, they became completely transparent,
losing all of their colors.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve gone back to the past in my head
and repeated to myself the songs
we used to sing together on our way home.

What should I do? What am I supposed to do?
With all the things I left unsaid that day, and all the lies I’ve told?
I wish you’d reproached me a little when I made a sudden stop
in the middle of our way home, and then gently painted me over with a little blue.

“This is ridiculous. Just ridiculous. You don’t get it.”—I threw my words at you.
“This is just stupid. So stupid.”—I feigned my resignation and looked at you from a distance.

I randomly mixed together all the colors at hand,
using the excuse that I don’t want to use the same colors everyone has used.
Before long, it became a perfect mess of black,
and there was no way to repaint it.
In my head, I went back to the past and recalled
the setting sun I used to see with you.
I have yet to find a color redder than that red.

I should forgive myself, just forgive myself
for all the things I couldn’t do that day, and the days I let slip by.
My past may be full of mistakes; I may have covered up everything with an ugly black,
but I can draw them again, paint them again, over and over, however many times it takes, and I myself will change.

Are you ready?
“Not yet.”
Are you ready?
“Yes, I’m ready.”
I’ve given up on waiting for yesterday to come.

What should I do? What am I supposed to do?
With all the things I left unsaid that day, and all the lies I’ve told?
I wish you’d reproached me a little when I made a sudden stop
in the middle of our way home, and then gently painted me over with a little blue.

There might be unshed tears, and there might be sleepless nights,
but that’s all right; it’s really all right.
For someday, when I’ve forgotten,
as long as I can simply assume the color that’s my own…

    Ooh color metaphor song :3 Yay gumi

    The vid/thumbnail looks cool, I’d love to visit there. Live action vids are interesting, this is the first I’ve seen a road and water , usually it’s just a street of people passing by in city Pvs lol

        Yeah that’d be cool. Although if it was my exact street I might freak out XD; I remember seeing a post on tumblr that was like “what if hachi was your neighbor” I mean that wouldn’t apply to anyone in america (cept maybe some western composers) but it is possible some utaite and just fans would be neighbors or something. I mean there are a lot of group odottemita covers where they all meet up to do a vid XD; I mean it’d be interesting if you were like recording/singing along to a song and they were like “Oh, you like ___’s music huh?” and they were secretly them XD I wonder how much they’d freak out if like, “tweet from PinocchioP: One of the neighbors started singing one of my songs. They were pretty good”

            well at a con you’d prolly see some cosplayers but it’s still not as mainstream popular as other anime stuff within the ‘geek culture’. I’ve seen posts like “this classmate of mine is doing presentation on vocaloid at my school help” XD; i never did many presentations but i prolly wouldn’t pick that or anything music related in general b/c everyone’s always snobs when it comes to music
