Song of the Day 7/4: Jane Doe by Takahashi Minami

Lyrics Translation (via):

Who are you?
Please tell me
The one before me is
Jane Doe

Your eyes, always kind, wavered
Smiling, you looked at me
And then we feverishly sought each other out
Was our love that day an illusion?
Wow wow wow

In the glass window,
Hiding a view of the night
A different you was reflected
If you’re thinking
About someone else
You should slip out from my arms and go home

Do you kiss with your eyes still open?
Why don’t I know the you before me?
With your eyes still open, what are you looking at?
While embracing me, you’re looking at your next dream
My beloved Jane Doe

What was left was a pain in my shoulders
Nailmarks that were dug into me
I believed you were the one I was destined for
Was the future of our love a lie?
Wow wow wow

Your tight embrace
Slackening
You nonchalantly leave the room
Even if your heart
Isn’t in it
Let’s at least bring an end
To the half-finished kiss you left here

Why is it that you don’t close your eyes?
Your inclined neck is lovely
Is it because of inattention that you don’t close your eyes?
Will you knowingly deceive me?
Capricious Jane Doe

Everyone hides
Their true face
Even if you were to show me
That honesty now
I won’t be able to remember it
I’ve lost everything

Who are you?
Please tell me
The one before me is
Jane Doe

Do you kiss with your eyes still open?
Why don’t I know the you before me?
With your eyes still open, what are you looking at?
While embracing me, you’re looking at your next dream
My beloved Jane Doe

Song of the Day 7/3: Cloudy sky by Kojima Haruna

Lyrics Translation (via):

I don’t like blue skies
I don’t like people that are too nice
Cloudless skies
Are tiring
Yeah Yeah

Everyone, deep in their hearts,
Has something that they don’t want to be seen
Somewhere, there must be feelings of
Sadness and gloom

Even though I pretend to open up to
My family and friends,
I’m the only one that knows
The real me that has been locked away

Even if a refreshing breeze
Passes by,
It doesn’t mean that
All of my worries will disappear
Like a sky that will eventually rain
Somewhere, sometime,
It understands pain -
My own cloudy sky

I can’t become as pure and righteous
As sunlight
But even if the sun is overcast,
I believe there is a sunny place

The reason why I think the sun acts guiltily
And looks fake
Is because I’m not afraid
Of the approaching night

When I catch sight of a cloud
In clear skies,
For some reason,
I feel relieved

I can’t manage to go through life
That successfully
Let’s just be honest
Weather never stays the same
No matter who they may be,
People carry on with their lives
With a few clouds floating
In a corner of their hearts
