Supercar Lyrics

「Sleeping Bag」 by Supercar

  Album: Love Forever

Combined

JPスリーピングバッグとコインのアートで
SURIIPINGUBAGGU to KOIN no AATO de
ENWith a sleeping bag and coin art,

JP世間とメディアを遊んだくらいで
seken to MEDIA wo asonda kurai de
ENTo the extent I played around in society and media,


JP六番にいい賞をもらうよ。
rokuban ni ii shou wo morau yo
ENI win an exellent sixth place award,

JP欲張って二位をねらうよりも。
yokubatte ni i wo nerau yori mo
ENRather than greedily aiming for second place.


JP君はそして僕を2流も3流も同じなんだよって笑うんだろう、きっと。
kimi wa soshite boku wo niryuu mo sanryuu mo onaji nan da yo tte waraun darou, kitto
ENYou surely would have laughed and said, "You and I are the same in that we are second-rate".


JPスリリングな恋もアートで、気分はいつも後で――。
SURIRINGU na koi mo AATO de, kibun wa itsumo ato de――
ENThrilling love is also an art; the feeling always comes later――


JPあの頃も僕は素人で、本当のアートを知ろうとしたんだろう。
ano koro mo boku wa shirouto de, hontou no AATO wo shirou to shitan darou
ENI was also an amateur at that time. I'd try to know true art.


JP君はそんな僕を2流も3流も同じなんだよって笑うんだろうけれど
kimi wa sonna boku wo niryuu mo sanryuu mo onaji nan da yo tte waraun darou keredo
ENYou would have laughed and said, "You and I were the same in that we are second-rate", but

JP君に会って僕は自由になれたんだ。
kimi ni atte boku wa jiyuu ni naretan da
ENMeeting you had set me free.

JP君に会っても僕が二流のままでも。
kimi ni atte mo boku ga niryuu no mama demo
ENEven though I met you, I'll remain second-rate.

スリーピングバッグとコインのアートで
世間とメディアを遊んだくらいで

六番にいい賞をもらうよ。
欲張って二位をねらうよりも。

君はそして僕を2流も3流も同じなんだよって笑うんだろう、きっと。

スリリングな恋もアートで、気分はいつも後で――。

あの頃も僕は素人で、本当のアートを知ろうとしたんだろう。

君はそんな僕を2流も3流も同じなんだよって笑うんだろうけれど
君に会って僕は自由になれたんだ。
君に会っても僕が二流のままでも。

With a sleeping bag and coin art,
To the extent I played around in society and media,

I win an exellent sixth place award,
Rather than greedily aiming for second place.

You surely would have laughed and said, "You and I are the same in that we are second-rate".

Thrilling love is also an art; the feeling always comes later――

I was also an amateur at that time. I'd try to know true art.

You would have laughed and said, "You and I were the same in that we are second-rate", but
Meeting you had set me free.
Even though I met you, I'll remain second-rate.
