私の世界 (My World)

Sekai juu no te ki ni kou sansa
Tatakau ishiwanai
Sekai juu no hito no shiawase wo inori masu
Sekai no dare no jama mo shimasen
Shizuka ni shitemasu
Sekai no naka no chiisana basho da are ba ii
okashii de suka?
Hito wa sore zore chigau desho? Desho? Desho?

Dakara onegai kakawaranai de
Sotto shi to i te kudasai
Dakara onegai kakawaranai de
watashi no koto wa hotte o ite


They win—I give up.
I don’t have the will to fight back.
I’ll just pray that they can all be happy.
I’ll live my life and they can live theirs,
quiet and peaceful.
If all I have in this world is a little place to call home, I’ll be fine.
Is that so strange?
‘Cuz you know, everyone’s different, right?
So please don’t concern yourself with me.
I’ll be fine by myself.
So please, don’t concern yourself with me.
Just leave me be.

Despite the innocent, happy sound of this song (with children singing it, to boot) this is one of the saddest, truthful songs I’ve encountered. The song is as short as your usual children’s song, so the lyrics are just straight the point.

If the beginning of the lyrics didn’t begin with, “I give up, they win. I don’t have the will to fight back”, I’d probably make this my personal anthem as I love spending days by myself at home and not really concerning about others’ opinions or their opinion of me. If I’m not being a bother to them, why bother me? However, I do fight back when needed. I don’t just give up for the heck of it. I make sure that to give up would mean redeeming myself next time.

Anyway, as a song this is a very singable one. So I’m trying to memorize the lyrics. With these trying times which makes me want to leave life and say fuck it all, this would be my goodbye song to the world.
