Music Monday is a meme created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Hi friends πŸ’œ

My YouTube recommendations are pretty on point lately and I was recommended this heartbreaking song. At the moment, I can’t find a proper English translation of the lyrics (sorry guys, my “fluency” in Japanese only extends to a few words and syntac πŸ˜…). So, here’s one roughly translated using Google Translate…which I’m sure isn’t as inaccurate as it used to be years ago, right? πŸ˜‚

Clumsy Man (不器用γͺη”·) by Kanzaki Iori (カンアキむγ‚ͺγƒͺ)

English Translation of Lyrics

I was writing a story because I didn’t want to die
I used a pen even though it wasn’t the time
I was pretending
The more distracted I was, the more beautiful the story became
I really enjoyed becoming an adult

I was writing a story because I didn’t want to die
What kind of ending would you like?
Will you laugh at this kind of development?
Will you cry?
Will you get angry?

I was writing a fictional you
The feeling that I can’t grasp is beautiful
It’s all fiction
But still, I wrote
Neverendingly

Will it end like this?
Can you say that I’ve written it completely?
I wrote about spring, summer, autumn, and winter
I don’t want to die
In a room like the garbage
I was producing today
Yeah, I’m a clumsy man
I don’t want to die I don’t want to die I don’t want to die
I don’t want to die I don’t want to die

Because I want to know humanity,
I wrote a story
I can’t speak honestly
I’m not human
If I write down only what I want to say
The story was done
Nobody sees it but it was fun

I want to laugh like a human
I wrote a story
The muscles of my cheeks have long since disappeared
What makes me happy every time I get evaluated
I’m sure it’s because I’m ugly
Every time I want to be complimented
I was ashamed of myself

I can’t meet you
Old friend, teacher, family
Even you who loved that day
That alone gave me a sense of superiority

To fill the whole life
To fill all the loneliness
I wrote every day in the morning, day and night
To the extent that it collapses
Because of nothing
I’m not satisfied
Yeah, I’m greedy
I want to create I want to create I want to create
I want to create I want to create

Music, romance
Travel to the movies
To be the story of the story
I did anything
I spit it out and ate it again
Eat, cry, vomit, cry
It looks like a human

To burn the whole life
I just shook the pen
This was all for years and decades
Is this something useful for shit?
I know that
I know

I can’t finish it like this
I can’t say I’ve written it
I wrote about spring, summer, autumn, and winter
I’ll die
In a room like garbage
I was writing while crying
Yeah, I’m a clumsy man
I don’t want to die I don’t want to die I don’t want to die
I don’t want to die I don’t want to die I want to create
I want to create I want to create I want to create
I want to create it I don’t want to die
