Michishirube [Signpost] ~LYRICS~

0 comments Post a Comment

The title is I noticed translated as Signpost and yet read some which says Road Sign. I am following the translated version below. A very sad song since it was dedicated to his grandmother who passed away not long ago. Beautifully and emotionally sung, I love the mid part of the song eventhough I only knew what he was singing when I read the translated version. To me this is at his most poetic best. Translated lyrics by izumisano from MashaPlus Info Forum who by the way did a great job in the translation. The video above is actually a soundbite taken from his radio show song request, sung live with just his guitar. My favourite video is actually here (embedding not allowed so you will have to click the link) because you can see the emotion in his face and the tears of those who heard the song. This will be a themesong for all grandmothers I tell you. You will find this song in his latest album released in 2009, Zankyo.

I like those hands,
Living this simple life everyday,
To bring us up into adulthood
I like your hands.

Showered by rain, yet they kept working on the soil
Sowing each seed one by one, You
Must have had to give up your dreams
Yet, you always showed me your smile

(We) meet with Love; believe in Love; get hurt by Love,
(We) despise Love; then forgive with Love and learn how to Love
(When I was) battered by wind, confused and in doubt, on my path of survival,
Your smile showed me the way (was my sign post)

I like this sea,
This long and curving route,
Along the sea (shore) that you were born and grew up on
Coming here, I feel my regrets have lessened

(You) don’t hesitate even when hurt, (you are) not concerned even in pain,
You said that “Success” is the right way (original translation “Victory”)
As I strive to move on through failure,
Your gentleness (consideration, affection)….

(We) meet with People; believe in People; get hurt by People,
(We) despise People; then forgive People and learn to understand People
(When I was) battered by wind, in tears or laughter, on my path of survival,
Your smile showed me the way (was my sign post)

(When I am) battered by wind, I race on,
You gave (showed) me this path of survival (how to survive)

I like these hands,
Look! They look like your hands,
I like those hands of yours
Which brought us up into men.

Anyone interested, redirect them to my blog and ask them to join my contact list. But this is only open to those who will answer the questions in the form below accurately. If you're successful, you will receive quite a few emails since I group all links together into categorised documents.
