Jpop of the day "ORION"

9 Dec

“Orion” / Girl Next Door

The video is composed of 2 songs, with each uncompleted. (Orion is the first one.)

Lyrics
いつだって 三つ星だけは見つけた
まっすぐに 追いかけるあの瞳で

ひかりを結ぶ軌跡が
交差する座標軸に
悲しい物語が
あることも知らずに

真冬に輝くオリオン見上げて
思い切り泣ける場所をたずねたら
そらにくるまれて
心がとけてあふれ出した

どんなにこの手のひらを伸ばしても
触れることさえできない悔しさを
胸に抱きしめて
眠れない部屋で目を閉じる

つないでた 指先が離れてゆく
昼と夜 すれちがう世界のように

見えていたものが消えて
隠れてたものが見える
けれどそれはきっとずっと
そこにあるもの

真冬に輝くオリオンみたいに
愛されてると思い続けたまま
時を止めてたら
迷うこともなかったのかな

会いたくて 会えなくて でも会いたくて
確かめたがる気持ちで傷ついた
信じてることが
真実だとは限らないね

to be continued… (the video is cut here)
涙の数だけ強くなるなんて
いまはこれ以上泣きたくないよ

さよならの弓で答えがでるなら
目をこらさずにすべて受け止めたい
未来はいつでも
逃げない瞳の中にある

真冬に輝くオリオンみたいに
強く自分らしくあり続けたい
だからひとりでも
選んだ道を歩んでいく

This song caught my ear every time I go to a super market near my house these days. I am too busy to catch up with the latest J-pop and of course I had no idea what the title of the song was until I asked a cashier! She told me the title of the song and the name of the singer very promptly, but she forgot to give me a plastic bag. (LOL)

BTW, did you have difficulties in reading some Kanji? Which one was that? Some way of saying may confuse you. つないでた(つないでいた) 愛されてる(愛されている) 信じてる(信じている)These are colloquial ways, omitting い.

You may wanna check out the CD for full version if you liked the music. 😉
