“For A Number Of Reasons”/”It’s Complicated”・いろいろあって

いろいろあって (iroiro atte) literally means “(met with) various reasons”, and is used when you can’t describe the reasons for your actions because it’s complicated or because you don’t want to talk about it. 

It can be a phrase on it’s own or in a sentence (at the beginning, usually):

最近いろいろあって宿題をやらない。Saikin iroiro atte shukudai o yaranai.
Recently I haven’t been doing my homework for a number of reasons.

Maybe the person has been busy with extracurriculars, is too depressed to do anything, or has been sick. We don’t know. We just know that they haven’t been doing homework for some reasons they don’t feel like explaining.

なんで仕事辞めるの? Nande shigoto yameru no?
いろいろあって。iroiro atte.
- Why‘d you quit your job? (lit. why resign work?)
- It’s a long story/a lot of reasons/it’s complicated.

なんで別れるの?Nande wakareru no?
いろいろあって。iro iro atte.
- Why’d you guys break up? (lit. why break up?)
- It’s a long story/a lot of reasons/it’s complicated.

*THIS IS IMPORTANT!*
If you ask someone something and they reply with “いろいろあって"、then they don’t want to talk about it!
This is pretty much the english equivalent of “I don’t wanna talk about it”. Don’t ask them more questions on the subject if they answer with this, unless they decide to tell you the reasons voluntarily.
And vice versa, if you give someone that answer, they’re probably not going to ask you about it anymore.

‘’You two are a couple now?’’ 

‘’No’’ ‘’Yes’’ 

‘’We’re not?’’

‘’I’am not talking about this right now!’’

I’m done; done fighting against the universe in hope to optain things I crave that are not necesserly right for me.

  • What Separates Me From You
Play

Here we go again
Another night of being bummed
I keep to myself, avoid society
And cancel plans with everyone

I know ‘cause this is how it always ends
Our bond will break 'cause you can’t relate
To anyone, to anything at all

You brought your worst and I’m right here
Now I’ve seen it all
And it’s never been so clear

You’re not the person that I knew back then
It’s all too late to set things straight 'cause everything has been
You’re not the person that I knew back then
Let’s try and act like this didn’t happen
Let go of your friends like you ever had them

You still know me
Still not cut out for this sort of thing
Never want to be caught in between
I need constant reminders of everything
So what? It’s who I am
I play it off so well
I just hold it in no matter how I’ve been
So nobody, nobody can tell

You brought your worst and I’m right here
Now I’ve seen it all
And it’s never been so clear

You’re not the person that I knew back then
It’s all too late to set things straight 'cause everything has been
You’re not the person that I knew back then
Let’s try and act like this didn’t happen
Let go of your friends like you ever had them

I won’t sleep 'till the break of dawn
Can’t let our problems find me here
So everybody, come on!

You brought your worst and I’m right here
I’ve seen it all
And it’s never been so clear

You’re not the person that I knew back then
It’s all too late to set things straight 'cause everything has been
You’re not the person that I knew back then
Let’s try and act like this didn’t happen
Let go of your friends like you ever had them

You’re not the person that I knew back then
It’s all too late to set things straight 'cause everything has been
You’re not the person that I knew back then
Let’s try and act like this didn’t happen
Let go of your friends like you ever had them
