Androp – Shout

Androp – Shout

Song & Lyrics: Takahito Uchisawa
Translation: Kafka

You get hurt by a single word of kindness
This heart can’t live only for you and me

When feelings are turned into voices, someone tries to get hurt by them
And with that in mind, what will become of you and me?

The people that passes by each other and the stream of people
Important things can’t be seen by the eyes
My hearts overflows and tears fall
It’s suffocating, It’s suffocating

To the person who shouted out for the light
Try to look at the present rather praying for righteousness
To the person who wishes to cut down life
Let me hear your voice right now
And your everlasting pain right now

Real kindness
Tries to hurt someone
If I am really that strong
Although I become weak in order to protect you

Even though the person I want protect is right beside me
This hand of mine can’t warm you up
The words “Good Luck” turns into a knife
What should I do? What should I do?

To the person who chose to seek the light
Try to look at the present rather praying for righteousness
To the person who wishes to cut down life
The non-stop shouts
I wonder if you can hear them right now

You get hurt by a single word of kindness
This heart can’t live only for you and me

To the person who shouted out for the light
Live at this moment rather praying for righteousness
To the person who wishes to cut down life
Let me hear only your voice
And the unending shouts
Right now, with your voice,
Shout out to this world

Kanji:

ひとことの優しさが 君を傷つけてしまう
この心は君と僕の 為だけに生きれない

思いを声にすれば 誰かが傷つけようとする
その心は君と僕が どうなる為にあるの?

すれ違う人と人の流れ
大事なものが目には映せない
心が溢れて涙が出ます
息が詰まるよ 息が詰まるよ

光を求め叫んだ方へ
正しさ祈るより今を見てよ
命を削って望んだ方へ
終わらない痛みと
今 君の声を聞かせて

本当の優しさが
誰かを傷つけようとする
本当に強い僕ならば
君を守る為に弱くなれるのに

守りたい人が側にいるのに
この手は君を温められない
「頑張れ」って言葉がナイフに変わるよ
どうすればいいの? どうすればいいの?

光を求め選んだ方へ
正しさ祈るより今を見てよ
命を削って望んだ方へ
止まらない叫びが
今 君に聞こえているだろ

ひとことの優しさが 君を傷つけてしまう
この心は君と僕の 為だけに生きてみたい

光を求め叫んだ方へ
正しさ祈るより今を生きて
命を削って望んだ方へ
終わらない叫びと
君だけの声を聴かせて
こんな世界へ
今 君の声で叫んで

Androp – Voice

Androp – Voice

Song & Lyrics: Uchisawa Takahito
Translation: Kafka

Today I was someone
Who struggled in our dance

What began was someone’s
Lies of hope and dreams

The sound from the singing out rhythm
The things my stretched hand trying to grasp
Closing my eyes, Covering my ears
All the things I had chosen

The things I abandoned, the things I pointed out
The things I let go with “goodbye”
I’ll try to believe, I’ll try to love
I’ll fly higher than right now

Right now, let me hear your voice you are born with, in which can’t be replaced by someone
Sing with your voice you are born with, in which can’t replaced anywhere

Don’t disappear,
Don’t erase it,
With your voice

Sometimes we get hurt
By trying to be connected in pretension

The one ended it all, who was it?
With lies of hope and dreams

One of the persons standing side by side
Shed tears that no one knows about

Letting things be chosen, things be decided
Because I’m not needed by anyone

Hey, I can hear it, your shouting voice
“I’m sorry” with my forgotten self
I’ll try to believe, I’ll try to love
I’ll fly higher than right now

Let me hear the voice of your tears, in which can’t be replaced by someone
Sing with your raised voice, which can’t replaced anywhere

Not tomorrow’s, neither yesterday’s too
I want like my today’s self

I want to accept both the future and the past
I want like my current self

I want to believe, I want to love
The things special to me are right beside me

Right now, let me hear your voice you are born with, in which can’t be replaced by someone
Shout with your voice that you believed in, which can’t replaced anywhere

Right now, you are you
What you did is alright
Even there are times you decide what begins and what ends

Once you are living in this world
We can’t get out of it anymore
Then don’t ever ever forget the dreams, the lies, the love, and the darkness

Kanji:

今日も僕は誰かだった
君と僕が踊る為の抗争

始めたのは誰かだった
夢や希望の嘘

鳴り出したリズムは音に
伸ばした手が掴もうとしたこと
目を閉ざすのも耳塞ぐのも
全ては僕が選んでしたこと

投げ出したもの 指差したもの
「サヨナラ」と僕が手放したもの
信じてみてよ 愛してみてよ
今より高く飛べるよ

今 誰の代わりもいない君の 生まれた声を聞かせてよ
どこにも代わりのいない君の 生まれた声で歌ってよ

消えないで
消さないで
君の声で

時に僕らは傷ついて
繋がってみたり 流されたふりして

終わらせたのは誰だっけ
夢や希望の嘘を

立ち並ぶその中の一人
誰にも知られず流れる涙

選ばせたのも 決めさせたのも
誰にも必要とされないから

ねえ聴こえるよ 呼ぶ声がする
「ゴメンネ」と忘れた僕自身を
信じてみてよ 愛してみてよ
今より高く飛べるよ

今 誰の代わりもいない君の 涙の声を聞かせてよ
どこにも代わりのいない君の 掲げた声で歌ってよ

明日でもなく昨日でもない
今日の自分を好きでいたい

未来も過去も納得したい
今の自分を好きでいたい

信じてみてよ 愛してみてよ
大事なものはすぐ側にあるよ

今 誰の代わりもいない君の 生まれた声を聞かせてよ
どこにも代わりのいない君が 信じた声で叫んでよ


君は君で在るから
何したって良いんだよ
君が決める終わりだって始めだってあるから

君がいる世界なら
もうずっと離れないから
夢も嘘も愛も闇もずっとずっと忘れないでよ
