Flumpool – はなになれ

I felt like I had committed the greatest sin by not updating my blog last week. But the truth is, I didn’t have much to say. I think the daily grind got to me. This did not mean I had neglected my studies. I would read through 5-10 sentences everyday and add new vocabulary to the Cram list religiously.

This week I thought I’d give something new a try. I decided to learn a Japanese song. Flumpool’s 花になれ has been in my playlist for quite some time now and I absolutely enjoy listening to it. My most favourite part of it, I think, would be the violin accompaniment in the beginning of the song.

Thanks to this song I’ve learnt many words. I’m not focusing on the Kanji because that would confuse me needlessly. I’ve covered the first verse and pre-chorus and I must say, the singer has a really funny way of eating words. It’s hard to sing along even when the lyrics and him don’t always seem to match. I find myself rushing through the words trying to keep up with him. LOL.

If you guys haven’t heard this song, you must give it a try.

花になれ

息も絶える環状線沿いで
色褪せた星と闇空の下
いつのまに僕は自分らしさと
生き方のレシピ探しているんだろう?

素晴らしさという忘れ物
取り戻しに行こうくたびれた夢
幼少の頃砂に埋めた様に
十年後僕にこの歌を捧げよう

笑って泣いて歌って花になれ
咲き誇れいつか光溢れ
歯痒くてもきっと受け止めるよ
未来は気にせずに

数えきれいないほど何度も
君の名を呼んだ
何処かで笑んでるかな
夜空に放った僕らの
声は喧騒の中消えて
優しく僕らを包んでゆく

繰り返しの日々が嫌んなって
いっそ可憐に輝いてみようか
永遠に咲くドライフラワーよりも僕らは
散りゆくとも一心不乱な桜になれ

笑って泣いて歌って花になれ
咲き誇れいつか光溢れ
歯痒くてもきっと受け止めるよ
未来は気にせずに

数えきれいないほど何度も
君の名を呼んだ
手のひらに残る温もり
あの時誓った僕らの
声は喧騒の中消えて
君といた街に立ちすくむよ

いつのまにか傷つく事が怖くなって
まだ蕾のまま
光の射す場所をずっと探してる
明日もきっと

何処まで行けば笑いあえるの?
自由や希望やや夢は僕が思うほど
素晴らしいかな?輝いているのかな?
未来をこの胸に

数えきれいないほど何度も
君の名を呼んだ
何処かで微笑んでるかな
夜空に放った僕らの
声は喧騒の中消えて
優しく僕らを包んでゆく
