国道270号線 / TAISONG prod. by MAHBIE

2019年リリース TAISONGニュー・アルバム “shorthope”
収録曲「国道270号線」のMVを公開したところ
とあるリスナーから英訳を頼まれた。
歌主TAISONG経由でなんとリリックの英訳が到着。
日本語の詩の世界もさることながら、英語の世界(ニュアンス)もまた、趣き深い。
そんな事を感じさせるほど豊かな英語表現を手がけたのは
鹿児島のビートメイカー “hiatoh”氏、彼は前述したアルバムの収録曲
“She”のビートも手がけており、他にも数多の楽曲を送り出しているので
是非チェックしてください。

そして彼の訳した粋なリリックがこれ、こちらも良く咀嚼して
お召し上がりください。
(映像では日本語で表現しています)

TAISONG “ROAD270 ” English Lyric


God is lonely on the porch
Kamiaraiso Taisuke is only me
Trying not to be a slave of image and common sense Walkin through the sun setting city by myself
like a traveller chasing a solar eclispe
Reminding me things that almost forgotten
like a plaster we painted
Splatterd dirt, a light that’s shining in
I prefer a world that’s like a recycle shop
A moon that looks like a grapefruit
“To my dearest” invitation to a wedding
I will sing until I turn to ashes, in this ash raining city

These lyrics are not about griefs
These lyrics are not about sorrow
These lyrics are not about hatred
A moment of sepia, day and night
The sun rises from our backs again today
The sun sets in Hioki again today
Road 270, grabbing my steering wheel
Chilling out softly and deeply

First time scenery
First time meeting
Rare snow Walking feeling the atmosphere nervously That street corner
Tracing my memory and solving the puzzle
Something matched
Slowly aches
One after another
Thankful for knowledges and senses

South, North, East, West
Living in this land, working
Desire life with wisdom
Evening glow from back of the truck
Home made dishes and sweet words
It’s so warm, excessively
Like that time in firewood bath

Drove all my voice out
Rewarded Saved Assembled
Wrapped in It’s not a waste
Remember way
I wonder what this loop is
It hasn’t changed in millions of years
Lighting up a cigarette and blues
Nice Groove
A joy of reunion, happiness and difficulty of changes
It’s about you, and who you are
Anyway let’s toast
It’s a beautiful image when you are troubled, brother

These lyrics are not about griefs
These lyrics are not about sorrow
These lyrics are not about hatred
A moment of sepia, day and night
The sun rises from our backs again today
The sun sets in Hioki again today
Road 270, grabbing my steering wheel
Chilling out softly and deeply

“The number
you are trying to reach is currently unavailable”

He sitated loneliness
What’s he doing?
Is he alive?
Sorry, everyone got a lot of shit
You gain some, you lose some
I’ve been thinking that way
But I realized, that was backwards
Things that you lose, things that you gain
Figured out what’s left
Even if it changes to “thanks”
Caught up in a disaster
It circulated into fortune
Life is a comedy, we need to laugh
I want to enjoy the differences and distance
From Oshu to Koshu, South side Kyushu
A letter from MAHBIE who came to Tabi no Tochu
A navigator is my soul, like a Nanbushiki
Life after 3.11, continued from that night
“We just getting started”
Ain’t that right?
Asshole Let’s meet again soon

These lyrics are not about griefs
These lyrics are not about sorrow
These lyrics are not about hatred
A moment of sepia, day and night
The sun rises from our backs again today
The sun sets in Hioki again today
Road 270, grabbing my steering wheel
Chilling out softly and deeply
