茜さす 帰路照らされど・・・ (Akane sasu kiro terasaredo...)

This song is by 椎名林檎 and appears on the album 無罪モラトリアム (1999).

The Japanese title of this song is "茜さす 帰路照らされど・・・". This is read as "Akane sasu kiro terasaredo..." and means "The crimson-gleaming sun shines on my way back, but…".


The title of this song parodies the waka of Hitomaro Kakinomotono collected to Manyoshu, 「茜さす日は照らせれどぬばたまの夜渡る月の隠らす惜しも」.

Japanese

いつもの交差点で彼は頬のキスする
また約束もなく今日が海の彼方に沈む

ヘッドフォーンを耳に当てる
アイルランドの少女が歌う
夕暮れには切なすぎる
涙を誘い出しているの?

振り返る通りを渡る人に見惚れる
また約束も無く彼はビルの彼方へ消える

ヘッドフォーンを耳に当てる
ファズの効いたベースが走る
夕焼けには切なすぎる
涙を誘い出しているの?

今の二人には確かなものなど何も無い
たまには怖がらず明日を迎えてみたいのに

I place the headphones on my ears and listen
Someone sings a song. I feel so blue
Now darlin' promise me
And please tell me something words to soothe
I don't wanna cry

Romanized Japanese

itsumo no kousaten de kare wa hoo ni kisu suru
mata yakusoku mo naku kyou ga umi no kanata ni shizumu

heddofon o mimi ni ateru
airurando no shoujo ga utau
yuugure ni wa setsunasugiru
namida o sasoidashiteiru no?

furikaeru toori o wataru hito ni mitoreru
mata yakusoku mo naku kare wa biru no kanata ni kieru

heddofon o mimi ni ateru
fazu no kiita beesu ga hashiru
yuuyake ni wa setsunasugiru
namida o sasoidashiteiru no?

ima no futari ni wa tashika na mono nado nanimo nai
tama ni wa kowagarazu ashita o mukaetemitai no ni

I place the headphones on my ears and listen
Someone sings a song. I feel so blue
Now darlin' promise me
Please tell me something words to soothe
I don't wanna cry

English Translation

At the usual crossing, he kisses my cheeks.
Without making the plan again, today sets beyond the sea.

I place the headphones on my ears and listen.
An Irish girl is singing.
It's too sad at dusk.
Does it move me to tears?

When I look back toward the street, I admire people crossing there.
Without making the plan again, he disappears beyond buildings.

I place the headphones on my ears and listen.
The bass fuzzbox works to sounds.
It's too sad at dusk.
Does it move me to tears?

There is nothing to be reliable for the two of us now.
Sometimes I want to greet tomorrow without being afraid…

I place the headphones on my ears and listen
Someone sings a song. I feel so blue
Now darlin' promise me
Please tell me something words to soothe
I don't wanna cry
