Mustang (mix for Meiko)

Asian Kung-Fu Generation  - Mustang (Mix for Meiko)

Reading Solanin (the manga) while listening to this makes me cry all the time. Such a beautiful song.

AKG Fun fact:

This mix was released as the B-side to the Solanin Single. The lyrics to Solanin (the song) were written by Inio Asano (the author of the Solanin manga) and the original version of Mustang was the ending song to the Movie adaptation of the manga. The reason for the title being “Mix for Meiko” is that Meiko is the name of the female protagonist of Solanin.

Asian Kung-fu Generation
アネモネの咲く春に

どうしようもなく ただ 塞ぎ込む夜に

On nights where there’s just no getting away from the blues

皮肉だけを綴る僕の悪癖を許して

Forgive me for my terrible habit of spewing pure sarcasm

いつかまた君と会う日を願う

Hoping there’ll be a day when I see you again

コーヒーは今日も苦いです

The coffee’s bitter again today

敬具

Kind regards,

赤い花は枯れてしまった

The red flower has withered

君はずっと幸せだった?

Have you been happy all along?

Too late


君は今日幸せだった?

Were you happy today?

Too late
