RADWIMPS – オーダーメイド

by

I think i am slow in discovering this song. Here is the lyrics.

作詩:野田洋次郎 作曲:野田洋次郎

Japanese:

きっと僕は尋ねられたんだろう
生まれる前 どこかの誰かに
「未来と過去 どちらか一つを
見れるようにしてあげるからさ
どっちがいい?」

そして僕は過去を選んだんだろう
強い人より優しい人に
なれるように なれますようにと
『想い出』って何だか分かるように

続けて誰かさんは僕に言う
「腕も脚も口も耳も眼も
心臓もおっぱいも鼻の穴も
二つずつつけてあげるからね
いいでしょう?」

だけど僕はお願いしたんだよ
「口は一つだけでいいです」と
僕が一人でケンカしないように
一人とだけキスができるように

忘れたい でも忘れない
こんな想いを なんと呼ぶのかい

少し不機嫌な顔のその人は
また仕方なく話しはじめた
「一番大事な心臓はさ
両胸につけてあげるからね
いいでしょう?」

またまた僕はお願いしたんだ
「恐れ入りますがこの僕には
右側の心臓はいりません
わがままばかり言ってすいません」

僕に大切な人ができて
その子抱きしめる時はじめて
二つの鼓動がちゃんと胸の
両側で鳴るのがわかるように

左は僕ので右は君の
左は君ので右は僕の
一人じゃどこか欠けてるように
一人でなど生きてかないように

忘れたい でも忘れない
こんな想いをなんと呼ぶのかい

胸が騒がしい でも懐かしい
こんな想いをなんと呼ぶのかい

「そう言えば 最後にもう一つだけ
『涙 』もオプションでつけようか?
なくても全然支障はないけど
面倒だからってつけない人もいるよ
どうする?」

そして僕はお願いしたんだよ
強い人より優しい人に
なれるように なれますようにと
『大切』ってなんだか分かるように

「じゃあ ちなみに涙の味だけども
君の好きな味を選んでよ
酸っぱくしたり 塩っぱくしたり
辛くしたり 甘くしたり
どれでも好きなのを選んでよ
どれがいい?」

「望み通り全てが
叶えられているでしょう?
だから涙に暮れる
その顔をちゃんと見せてよ
さぁ 誇らしげに見せてよ」

「ほんとにありがとうございました
色々とお手数をかけました
最後に一つだけいいですか?

どっかでお会いしたことありますか?」

“Doukadeo ai shita koto arimasuka?”

English translated:

Order made by radwimps 

I think I must have been asked this once.
Before I was born, by someone, somewhere.
“Choose one: the past, or the future,
And I will allow you to see it.
Which will it be?
Which will it be?”

And I probably decided on the past.
So that, rather than just strong, I could become kind, become kind.
So that I could understand what memories are.

Next, that ‘somebody’ told me this.
“I’ll give you arms and legs and mouths and ears and eyes,
Hearts and breasts and nostrils.
I’ll give you two of each one.
Isn’t that great?
Isn’t that great?”

But then I made a request.
I said, I’d be fine with just one mouth.
So I wouldn’t argue with myself;
So I could only kiss one person.

I want to forget.
But somehow, I can’t.
What do you call this kind of feeling?

Looking a little disappointed,
The person continued with his explanation.
“The hearts are most important,
So I’ll put one behind each of your breasts.
Isn’t that great?
Isn’t that great?”

But, once more, I had a request to make.
I’m awfully sorry, but to be honest,
I really don’t need a heart on the right.
Sorry to keep troubling you like this.

It’s so that when I find that one special person,
And hold her close to me for the first time,
Only then will I finally be able to feel
Two hearts beating, one on each side.

The left one mine, the right, yours.
The left one yours, the right, mine.
So that alone, I’ll always be lacking something.
So that I won’t be able to just go on living alone.

I want to forget.
But somehow, I can’t.
What do you call this kind of feeling?

My chest is pounding,
Yet somehow it seems familiar.
What do you call this kind of feeling?

“Ah, that reminds me, there’s one last thing.
Would you like us to add in tears as well?
You’d have no problems without them,
But some people find them annoying, so they opt out.
What would you like?
What would you like?”

In the end, I asked him to add them in.
So that, rather than just strong, I could become kind, become kind.
So I could understand what it means to hold something dear.

“Oh, while we’re at it, the tears will need a flavour.
So I’d just like you to choose which one you’d prefer.
We have sour, salty, spicy, sweet.
You can choose whichever you like.
Which will you have?
Which will you have?”

Everything was put together just as requested,
So wipe those tears away and let me see your face.
Come on, show it to me with pride.

Thank you so much for everything.
Sorry to have caused you so much trouble.
But could I just ask one last thing?
“Have we met somewhere before?”

Comment: This is really a great song with great meaning. It is really like creating a human. The best part i like i think is 忘れたい、でも忘れない. I want to forget but i cannot forget. The part about 1 heart for me so that i would not live alone. Mine would be the left side and hers will be the right. I also like this part.

Somehow this sounds like god creating human. Who cares, it is a great song afterall.
