NIKORA

Postby vento » 2013-02-12 11:12

Hi there! I'm trying to transcript maaya's new song lyrics, but there are some words i can't understand.

Here's my first attempt:

????? wa asa roku ji ni
tabibito wo tsuretekuru
kawaita kaze wo hoho ni yuke
mabushii ge ni me wo hosomete

kooyuu wa utsukushii tokoro da
tomaru de yume ga eiga no you
moshimo koko de kurashiteita nara
shiawase darou tte

atashi ni wa katata? ikutsu no? keshiki
hoka no ikikata nante shiranai wa
kono machi de umarete shinde yuku no
toosugiru anata to sumu sekai wa

dare mo kamina ude wo hiroge
tabibito wo ukeireru
anata no mujakina egao de
arigatou to kurikaesu

soshite yuu wa yasashii hito bakari da
tomagure shinyohuka? kazoku ga
itsuka futatabi wo to tsureru made
wasurenaide tte

atashi ni wa mainichi onaji keshiki
??????? ga nanika nante shiranai wa
hito to aenai koto wakatteiru
toosugiru anata to sumu sekai wa

????? wa asa roku ji ni
tabibito wo tsuretekuru
hanaori wa senro ni suwatte
sono jikan wo matteru

Wow, great job getting this much down!!

I listened to the first part for a long time, and I think she's saying "yakouressha" (夜行列車) which means "night train" and I think fits with the rest of the verse. I didn't know this word myself until I searched for it just now. Thank you!

Sorry for hijacking, but here's my translation.

The backstory of the song was mentioned in Maaya's interviews and also in her live MCs. She went for a trip to Cappadocia, Turkey and was struck by the fact that almost everyone there works as a guide or another tourist-related job. To her, it was an ancient region from another time, but to people living there it's just everyday scenery, and they don't know any other life. She made a song from a point of view of a flower seller girl.

-----------------------------------
夜行列車は朝6時に旅人を連れてくる
乾いた風を頬に受け まぶしげに目を細めて
こう言うわ
美しいところだと
まるで夢か映画のよう
もしもここで暮らしていたなら幸せだろうって
yakou ressha wa asa rokuji ni tabibito wo tsuretekuru
kawaita kaze wo hoho ni uke mabushige ni me wo hosomeru
kou iu wa
utsukushii tokoro da to
maru de yume ka eiga no you
moshimo koko de kurashiteita nara shiawase darou tte

The night train brings tourists at 6 A.M
They feel the dry wind on their cheeks and shade their eyes
And say:
"What a beautiful place!
Like from a dream or a movie
Living here must be happiness itself"

私にはただ退屈な景色
ほかの生き方なんて知らないわ
この町で生まれて死んでいくの
遠すぎる あなたの住む世界は
atashi ni wa tada taikutsu na keshiki
hoka no ikikata nante shiranai wa
kono machi de umarete shindeiku no
toosugiru anata no sumu sekai wa

To me it's just a boring scenery
I don't know any other way of life
I was born in this town and will die here
The world you live in is too far from mine

誰もが皆腕を広げ 旅人を受け入れる
あなたは無邪気な笑顔でありがとうと繰り返す
そして言うわ
優しい人ばかりだと
まるで親友か家族だ
いつかふたたび訪れるまで忘れないでって
daremo ga minna ude wo hiroge tabibito wo ukeireru
anata wa mujaki na egao de arigatou to kurikaesu
soshite iu wa
yasashii hito bakari da to
maru de shin'yuu ka kazoku da
itsuka futatabi otozureru made wasurenaide tte

Everybody welcomes tourists with open arms
You keep saying "thank you" with an innocent smile
And say:
"Everyone is so nice here
Like close friends or family
Let's not forget each other until we meet again"

私には毎日同じ景色
普通が何かなんて知らないわ
二度と会えないことわかっている
遠すぎる あなたの住む世界は
atashi ni wa mainichi onaji keshiki
futsuu ga nanika nante shiranai wa
nidoto aenai koto wakatteiru
toosugiru anata no sumu sekai wa

For me it's the same scene every day
I don't know if it's usual or not
I know we'll never meet again
The world you live in is too far from mine

夜行列車は朝6時に旅人を連れてくる
花売りは線路に座って その時間を待ってる
yakou ressha wa asa rokuji ni tabibito wo tsuretekuru
hanauri wa senro ni suwatte sono jikan wo matteiru

The night train brings tourists at 6 A.M
Flower sellers sit along the road waiting for it
