水上バス (Suijou Bus)

Artist: Mr.Children

Lyric: Kazutoshi Sakurai

[Romaji] [Kanji]

on my brand new bike,
I pedal myself out of breath, heading towards the pier
the wind I breathe in large gasps
smells a little like oil
floating along that massive river.

I’m waiting for you, with nothing but time on my hands
this vague feeling of happiness fills me
is that spray approaching at a leisurely speed
from the opposite shore, you?

You spy me from inside the water taxi
and from amidst the tourists you wave to me with a smile
I thought to myself,
how I would protect such pure scenes
with all that I have.

With you on my bike and me pedaling,
I don’t have a car radio or anything
so I sang to you.
all my love for you hidden in that melody,
as I sang, it streamed in the wind behind us.

“The other day I happened upon this new cafe,
I think you’ll really like it.”
I’m always living in this city
simulating the days I’ll be with you.

As we sit by the window sill, the light of the setting sun falls upon us
and it drapes you in a beautiful shadow
my feelings for you are driven wild
I want so badly to take you in my arms.

like a river’s flow
sometimes love gets rough, and we begin to trip each other up
I did nothing wrong, but it’s not your fault either
maybe you were right to choose to leave

sadness fills me.
I’m waiting, I’m waiting again today,
my heart bathed in the memories

You spy me from inside the water taxi
and from amidst the tourists you wave to me with a smile
in order to turn back the clock on such serene scenes
I pedal my bike alone
along the river’s edge.
