Title:
「かくれんぼ」 “Hide and Seek”


Kanji Romaji English
夕暮れ
隠れ家探す人の波に
紛れ込んで
誰もが
壁際の席を取り合うように
行きずりに
同じテーブルの君のこと
知りたいな
別々の
灰皿でタバコ
吸ってるだけの
yuugure
kakurega sagasu hito no nami ni
magirekonde
daremo ga
kabegiwa no seki wo toriau you ni
yukizuri ni
onaji TEEBURU no kimi no koto
shiritai na
betsubetsu no
haizara de TABAKO
sutteru dake no
In the evening
I slip into
the waves of people
Who search for refuge
So that everyone
Will hold hands
along the wall
I want to casually know
The same table you sit at
But I’m just smoking
With a separate ashtray
セルフサービスのコーヒーを
コートも脱がずに
見つめてる
途切れ途切れに読む本は
始まりも忘れた
SERUFU-SAABISU no KOOHII wo
KOOTO mo nugazu ni
mitsumeteru
togiretogire ni yomu hon wa
hajimari mo wasureta
I’m looking at you,
not even taking off your coat
As you make your self-service coffee
The book I’m intermittently reading
Has forgotten its own beginning
Hide and seek
見えすぎるレンズ
をはずした
夜の街
探してる
一つだけのFocus
消えないで
Hide and seek
miesugiru RENZU
wo hazushita
yoru no machi
sagashiteru
hitotsu dake no Focus
kienaide
Hide and seek
I took off the lens
I’d looked through too much
And I’m searching
For the city at night
I have just one focus
So don’t ever disappear
細切れの
歌だけで何かが
伝えられるかな
出来るなら
かけがえない君のこと
だけでも
カウンターの
向こうじゃ誰もがStranger
に変わるから
私だけが
知ってる君に今会いたくて
komagire no
uta dake de nanika ga
tsutaerareru kana
dekiru nara
kakegaenai kimi no koto
dake demo
KAUNTAA no
mukou ja daremo ga Stranger
ni kawaru kara
watashi dake ga
shitteru kimi ni ima aitakute
I wonder what I can convey
With a song that’s all
In little pieces?
If I can do that
Then it’s possible
even for irreplaceable you
Because everyone becomes a stranger
Beyond the counter
Now I want to see you
Who only I know
セルフサービスのコーヒーで
みんな明日の夢を見てる
せめて新しいボールペンで
恋を語りたいね
SERUFU-SAABISU no KOOHII de
minna ashita no yume wo miteru
semete atarashii BOORUPEN de
koi wo kataritai ne
With self-service coffee
Everyone’s dreaming of tomorrow
I want to tell you of my love
With at least a new ball-point pen
Hide and seek
見えすぎるレンズ
をはずした
夜の中
見えてくる
君だけにFocus
合わせてる
Hide and seek
miesugiru RENZU
wo hazushita
yoru no naka
miete kuru
kimi dake ni Focus
awaseteru
Hide and seek
I took off the lens
I’d looked through too much
And I match my focus
Just to you
Who I can see
Within the night
Hide and seek
忘れ物どこに置いたかな
見つからない
振り返る
毎日の中で
君に会った
Hide and seek
wasuremono doko ni oita kana
mitsukaranai
furikaeru
mainichi no naka de
kimi ni atta
Hide and seek
Where did I put what I’ve lost?
I can’t find it
So I look back
To within those days
When I met you
Hide and seek
見えすぎるレンズ
をはずした
夜の街
探してる
一つだけのFocus
消えないで
Hide and seek
miesugiru RENZU
wo hazushita
yoru no machi
sagashiteru
hitotsu dake no Focus
kienaide
Hide and seek
I took off the lens
I’d looked through too much
And I’m searching
For the city at night
I have just one focus
So don’t ever disappear
