YUI - can't buy my love Album

YUI - can't buy my love Album

01. How Crazy

I put my cold guitar inside its case.
People still want me to play tonight,
But I think I’ve had enough today.
Yeah, I’m feeling all right.

Adults give me advice all the time,
Strange people I can’t respect.
I didn’t really want to be like you at first.

My faded jeans rustle as I get on a subway train,
I peer into the window and see my dark reflection.
I haven’t changed at all, I’m still as I was back then.

I wish I had some money for a change, you know?

How Crazy!
Stop talking like you can read my mind.
You can’t, I’m telling you.
How Crazy!
I’m just a rat that escaped from a burning ship,
Sinking deep into the sea.

I’ve always loved my dreams and desires,
Blindly following them isn’t the way to go.

Walking up the subway steps creeps me out.
The light at the end feels dark and unknown.

In a parking by lot by twilight’s light,
I see a happy little kid, waving his hand at me,
Without a care in the world.

I yell at the naive child,
Trying to tell him to be wise,
To use his time as he should,
But I don’t know how to say it.

It’s useless, it’s hopeless.
He can’t understand either way.

Oh God, it’s so cruel. For both of us.

How Crazy!
Stop talking like you can read my mind.
You can’t, I’m telling you.
How Crazy!
I’m just a rat that escaped from a burning ship,
Sinking deep into the sea.

I’ve always loved my dreams and desires,
Blindly following them will do nothing for me.

Work, work, study study,
Get those A’s and honors in school
Or your family will weep in shame.

You can make a billion dollars in a flash,
But can’t respect yourself.
Baby, that’s me.
My mind groans under a thousand contradictions.
How long must I live in a world like this?!

How Crazy!
Stop talking like you know who I am.
You don’t, I’m telling you.
How Crazy!
I’m just a rat that escaped from a burning ship,
Sinking deep into the sea.

I clutched my cold guitar and sang a song by myself,
Just like I did all those years ago…

02. Rolling Star

My patience is running out
I want to say what I wanna say
Coming home from the bus stop at twilight
Saying bye bye bye to sad backs of others

You gotta show you Fighting Pose oh oh

A world like I have seen in my dreams
Without conflict, just daily peace
But in reality, I tend to worry about
Troubles and the daily grind
Those Rolling Days

Even though you keep on falling,
You laugh and get up every time
As I board the vacant back of the bus
You flash me a small smile

I must place my trust in you

Sweet love like I have seen in my dream
Lovers searching for hidden refuge
But in reality, on the days we cannot meet,
Continue on but I believe in Lonely Days

Oh yeah, yeah…
Even if you stumble, Way to go
Yeah, yay!
A muddled Rolling Star

It pains me to see your smiling face, but
Is there no way to protect you till the end?

There is no meaning to this lie, none at all
All my loving,
Without it, I can’t go on

A world like I have seen in my dreams
Without conflict, just daily peace
But in reality, I tend to worry about
Troubles and the daily grind
Those Rolling Days

Oh yeah, yeah…
Even if you understand it all
Oh yeah, yeah…
Even if you stumble, way to go,
Yeah yay
A muddled rolling star

03. It’s All Right

I’ll cry and cry and then forget about it
As the train started, I saw in the window
Myself and this unbearable feeling

There were things that we wouldn’t have known
If we hadn’t kept talking about them, right?
On the platform at the station
You’re still waving

The truth is, I want to come right out
And take this day back

The sparkle of those days
Is like a shooting star in summer
But everything doesn’t keep going well
Overlooking things won’t change anything
The future is so fleeting, it’s all right

I think if I could go back in time just a little
I could do it over
But now you’re too far away to see

Carrying on like this
Will just cloud my wonderful memories

The sparkle of those days
Is like a shooting star in summer
But everything doesn’t keep going well
Overlooking things won’t change anything
The future is so fleeting, it’s all right

I thought for sure
That it would pass in the blink of an eye

I know it’s too late to have thoughts like this
But I can’t go on like this

I’ll get off at the next station

The sparkle of those days
Is like a shooting star in summer
But everything doesn’t keep going well
Overlooking things won’t change anything
The future is so fleeting, it’s all right

04. I Remember You

The wind on my face is so cold.
But it reminds me of the sky, when we were together.
I can still see the ocean from my house
I’m looking and waiting for you here.

The days have changed and gone by,
But our summer is still there, in my surfboard
I remember the sun then, like it was yesterday
Ne, I can still hear your voice.

You said to me “I’m not going cry,??
We waved each other goodbye silently.
We didn’t say any words: our hands did that for us.
You melted into the sunset, but I Remember You.

Every time I hold your old, rusty guitar,
I hear our song tugging at my heart.
The days seem so cloudy now,
Passing by one after the other.

But I remember thinking:
“I know we’re living for someone.??
Yeah, the sun told that to me.
Ne, I can still hear you.
*repeat chorus*

05. Ruido

When we first met backstage
She was playing a guitar
I don’t remember the title
But it was my favourite song

Who is she?
It weighs on my mind
As I go back to my seat
Who is she?
I see her onstage
And she’s so wonderful that she captivates me

When the live show was over
I drank up my Coke
And made up my mind
To give it my all too

I love ruido

06. CHE.R.RY

The thing vibrating in my palm
Became a little bit of courage
I was no good with the symbols on my cellphone
But anything from you made me excited

I heard from someone
That you shouldn’t reply right away
But I can’t play games

…I love you, ah ah ah ah

I’ve fallen in love
You probably haven’t noticed, have you?
I make a wish in the starry night, cherry
With my fingers, I’ll send you a message

The cherry blossoms are blooming
I can see the whole scene from this room
Rather than switching worlds with you
For ten seconds

I want words from you
Just one line will do
Even if it’s a lie, I can keep believing

…Because I love you, ah ah ah ah

I’ve fallen in love
You probably haven’t noticed, have you?
I make a wish in the starry night, cherry
With my fingers, I’ll send you a message

Fruits that are getting sweeter are the best
I want to grow them from an ordinary conversation, ah ah ah ah

The beginning of love, my chest tightens
I’ve been waiting forever
So I’ll entrust my message to the spring’s cold night wind

I’ve fallen in love
You probably haven’t noticed, have you?
I make a wish in the starry night, cherry
With my fingers, I’ll send you a message

07. Thank You My Teens

When I peer into a memory of a day long ago
A secret letter
Hidden in an empty box

The last day of my teens is getting closer
And it seems like there are things I’ve forgotten to do, and it makes me panic

I thought I didn’t want to grow up
But I’m grateful
Thank you my teens

Just singing
Turning any pain into a new song right away
Just by doing that, I was able to turn it into strength

I want my friends to think well of me, even just a little
I didn’t think I cared, but I’m actually a showoff

Meeting someone new gave me support for my dreams
So I’m grateful
Thank you my friends

I thought I didn’t want to grow up
But now I’m 20
Thank you my teens

08. Umberella

Pitter-pat, it’s raining on the street in Block 2
I’m going to the station to meet you

Pitter-pat, actually we had a fight
So I want to leave you be…
But you’ve forgotten your black umbrella

I’m waiting for you, I’ll wait forever
I forgive you, so come quick, my darling

Over here, where I can see the ticket gates
I look for you, sure to be stressed out
You’re late home again tonight

Pitter-pat, little drops keep falling
Between us
My white shoes are dirty

But I’m waiting for you, I’ll wait forever
I forgive you, so come quick, my darling

Over here, where I can see the ticket gates
I look for you, sure to be waving
But you’re late home again tonight

I thought you knew
Every time it rains, I come here

I’m waiting for you again tonight, I’ll wait forever
I want you to forgive me, my darling

Every time the ticket gates went dark
I thought of how sweet you were and cried
You’re late home again tonight
You’re late home again tonight

09. Highway Change

But it can’t end like this, I don’t want to end it, do I?
I’m waiting for a chance
Quietly waiting for a chance

You can’t run away, through the airport or through the harbour
Life won’t let you get away, yeah, so easily
Going home, hurrying home, it’s the same at night
There’s no way out

You can’t run from hunger or defeat
Life won’t let you get away, yeah, so easily
It won’t even let you do things over
So look forward
This isn’t a video game

It’s like getting on the highway from a loop road – that kind of image
You push forward, but the reality is
It’s lying in the palm of someone’s hand

No matter how hard things get, no matter how sad you get, you mustn’t run away
Life won’t let you get away, yeah, so easily
So don’t give up, you can’t get down on yourself
Your chance will come
That day is getting closer

It’s like getting on the highway from a loop road – that kind of image
You push forward, but the reality is
It’s lying in the palm of someone’s hand

But it can’t end like this, I don’t want to end it, do I?
It’s crunch time, as I summon up all my strength
I’m waiting for a chance
Quietly waiting for a chance

It’s like getting on the highway from a loop road – that kind of image
I’m going to move on, so I can make that image reality

If I’m not going to let my highway chance slip away
I can’t take my eyes off it; bye bye, I’m going to catch up right now

10. Happy Birthday To You

Happy birthday to you you 2x
Here’s a birthday song for you, OK?

Sorry to give you a shock
I’m so glad I could see you on this special day
Blow out the candles
And we’ll make a toast – happy birthday!

Happy birthday to you you 3x
thanks for everything!
Happy birthday to you you 2x
Here’s a birthday song for you, OK?

I want you to stay near me all the time
And tell me your special dreams
Hope things go well from now on
I’ve got you a present too, happy birthday!

Happy birthday to you you 3x
thanks for everything!
Happy birthday to you you 2x
Here’s a birthday song for you, OK?

From now on I’ll be with you even on hard days
I want to grow old with you like this

Happy birthday to you you 3x
thanks for everything!
Happy birthday to you you 2x
Here’s a birthday song for you, OK?

11. Winding Road

Shibuya’s full of traffic, on the highway at 5pm
Bikes go past outside the smokescreen

I’m as blue as the lines in the Italian film I saw yesterday

Just as I can’t touch a seven-coloured rainbow
I don’t expect to stay in love
With the same person

This is boring you, isn’t it?
By the way, what time is it?
Can we get there in time for the start?
I want to go to a live show

The car stereo isn’t enough for me, it distorts the sound of the guitar

This is a boring season
It’s as busy as the end of the year
But it’s the same scenery everywhere
The picture on that TV’s crap, turn it off

Surely even if we talk about this time next year
Ah~, it won’t take a load off our minds the way fortune telling would
I know that, winding road

The sun’s going down, it’s unbearable
Being shut up in my car like this

Panicking like this will just wear me out
So I’ve stopped thinking about what’s going to happen

I doubt I’ll make it to the live show at this rate
Ah~, getting annoyed won’t get me anywhere
I know that, winding road

12. Goodbye Days

So I’ll go to you now, I’ve made up my mind
I want to play you the song in my pocket

I quietly turned up the volume to make sure

Oh good-bye days
I feel like things are changing now
So long yesterday and before
I have a clumsy tenderness by my side
La la la la la
~With you

I pass you one earphone
And in that moment, it plays slowly

I am, I’m loving you, right? Sometimes I get confused

Oh good-bye days
Now what’s in my heart has begun to change, alright
I have a clumsy tenderness by my side
La la la la la
~With you

I don’t want to have sad thoughts if I can help it
But they’re bound to come, right?
When they do, I’ll smile and say
“Yeah, hello!” I hope I can call you
My friend…

When we sing the same song
Be by my side, I wish
I’m glad I found that clumsy tenderness

La la la la la
…Good-bye days

13. Why

I know you’re hiding something
Every time I look at you, you look like you’re going to fall apart

You must have a heart, right?
All you’ve done lately is laugh

Sometimes I’ve been overwhelmed by sadness
Though I thought I trusted you

Why do people have words?
They make our hearts harder to see

At the moment I’m like something a traveler

finds as they wander aimlessly
I can’t even chase you too far

You must have mistaken me for someone else
In that case, say it more strongly

Sometimes I’ve been overwhelmed by sadness
Though I thought I trusted you

Why am I doubting you?
You mean more to me than anyone else

I’m scared, and sometimes things get tough
But I’ll trust you from now until forever

Why do people have words?
They make our hearts harder to see
