Track 09 – Ai ni ikiru アイニイキル Living in sorrow
Lyrics & Composition: Kamikita Ken

Lyrics:

Kotoba wa kaze ni nagare nagarete izuko e.
Machi wa maigo ni soshiranu furi de kotaete.
Boku wa to ieba nijimu shikai no katasumi,
Dareka wo motomeru koto sura dekinainda.

Chigiregumo ga akaku somaru juushichi-ji wa,
Sekai ga kiete nakunaru kizashi no you de,
Boku wa kokoro ga michiyuku oto ni oborete,
Tsuka no ma, hitori da tte koto wasurerunda.

Kimi wa omoishitta tte omoishitta tte iuu. Zutto hitori nanda tte hitori nanda tte naku.
Nanimo dekinai bokura issho ni nante iru shikaku mo nakute,
Kimi no kotoba wo kaze ni tokashite, machi ni magirerunda.

Yoru wa matteita. Mawatteita. Fujouri na hibi no owari.
Azawaratteita. Wakatteita. Mikata nado doko ni mo inai sa.
Boku wa matteiru. Mada, matteiru. Hitsuyou to sareru sekai wo.
Ai ni ikiru, ai ni ikiru, ai ni ikiru.
Ai ni ikiru, ai ni ikiru, ai ni ikiru.

Itsuwari no hikari ni hito wa kokoro madoi, ashimoto hirogaru kage kara me wo sorashite,
Baramakareta koufuku wo i to mo tayasuku musabori nagara,
Aa, fukou da tte nageiterunda.

Kimi wa tsuraku wa nai tte tsuraku wa nai tte iuu. Zenbu ganbatta tte ganbatta tte naku.
Fui ni tsuyoku fuita minamikaze ga boku ni todoketa, kimi no namida to kimi no taion wo,
Seippai dakishimetanda.

Yoru wa matteita. Mawatteita. Fujouri na hibi no owari.
Azawaratteita. Wakatteita. Mikata nado doko ni mo inai sa.
Boku wa matteiru. Mada, matteiru. Hitsuyou to sareru sekai wo.
Ai ni ikiru, ai ni ikiru, ai ni ikiru.

Yoru wa matteita matteita.
Kimi ga matteita matteita.
Boku wa matteiru matteiru, hitsuyou to sareru sekai wo.
Ai ni ikiru, ai ni ikiru, ai ni ikiru.
Ai ni ikiru, ai ni ikiru, ai ni ikiru.

English translation:

Words flow with the wind and go who knows where,
The streets feign ignorance to the lost ones.
In a corner of my blurred field of vision,
I can’t even yearn for someone

Scattered clouds float on the reddened 5 p.m. sky,
As if announcing that the world will disappear in thin air
My heart drowns in the sound of people passing by,
And for a moment, I forget that I’m alone.

You say you realized, you realized it. And cry that you’re always alone, always alone.
We can’t do anything and we don’t have the right to be together.
I let the wind take your words away and get lost in the streets.

The night was waiting, was waiting for the end of the absurd days.
I sneered. I knew that I had no allies.
I’m waiting, I’m still waiting for a world where I’m needed.
I live in sorrow, I live in sorrow, I live in sorrow.
I live in sorrow, I live in sorrow, I live in sorrow.

People’s hearts get delusioned by false light, they look away from the shadows stretching at their feet.
They easily indulge in the scattered pieces of happiness without question
Aa, they lament that they’re unhappy.

You say it’s not tough, that it’s not tough. And cry that you always tried hard, that you tried hard.
The southern wind that blew suddenly brought your tears and temperature to me.
I hugged you with all my might.

The night was waiting. The end of the absurd days spinning around.
I sneered. I knew that I have no allies.
I’m waiting, I’m still waiting for a world where I’m needed.
I live in sorrow, I live in sorrow, I live in sorrow.

The night was waiting, was waiting
You were waiting, you were waiting
I’m waiting, I’m waiting for a world where I’m needed
I live in sorrow, I live in sorrow, I live in sorrow.
I live in sorrow, I live in sorrow, I live in sorrow.

——————–
Are most of his songs about the feeling of being unneeded, weak, and the need to be loved and to find what’s important? It’s a bit sad, thinking there’s a possibility that might be a feeling he has, if he wrote about it much.

*Ai ni ikiru – the title is written in katakana, which means you can’t get ay meaning out of it aside from what you think it is (words that are pronounced “ai”). Initially, I thought it’d be “living in love” since “ai” most commonly means “love” but the character used in the lyrics is not “愛” (love) but “哀” which would mean “sorrow” etc. It’s probably intentional that you can’t grasp the meaning from the title or from hearing.
