Sore wa Yappari Kimi Deshita Lyrics  
Beautiful, as always. Nino just has a way of telling us a story through a song that not many people can do so well. *edit* According to a recent interview with Nino, the girlfriend had in fact passed away in the song. The lyrics have been changed a little to reflect that.

I'll make it easy to understand.Collapse )

Hm, I wanted to clear up some things for everyone. He omits a lot of things, so it might be hard to tell, but in the song I'm 99% sure the protagonist and his lover broke up.

It's implied in lines like when he makes food, and puts out the 'your' favourite things, but it never gets eaten - because he/she is not there anymore. And he tells himself, perhaps if he makes it better next time, that person will return. But he knows it's not going to happen. He also drinks and starts saying things like it's not fair and hears the lover's voice like, did you smarten up some? and he realizes he really hasn't changed at all.

I think it's like an alternate ending to Niji story... The one where he wasn't able to tell her she was more beautiful than a rainbow and the argument from Niji probably just ended like that.

I was going to write something similar myself..

Why do people think that this is a "happy love song"? I read about someone who wants for her future boyfriend to sing it to her.. I thought "Oh, no, thanks! If he does, it means that we are not together anymore" XD

Anyway, I think it's some kind of a continuation of Niji. It's a song of regrets, and it feels much more grown up than Niji. It’s like they were innocents at the beginning of their love and then they lost something along the way and he couldn’t say to her what was really important, and even if, now, he can say that she is more beautiful than a rainbow, and he can say it with confidence like he did in the past, she is not there to listen to him anymore, he can’t force her by his side because he knows that he can’t go back in time.

Thank you for the lyrics for this beautiful song.

Nino doesn't use direct words in his lyrics, so we all have to guess what he means even a Japanese speaker like me.

Let me mention about the lyrics a bit.
So the song "Niji" was about a young married couple. They were happy each other though the guy was too shy to say "I love you".

Now in this song, the wife has passed away.
He misses her a lot, and he feels that she is beside him all the time.
He wants to go(die)to see her, but he can't because she doesn't want him to die.
She smiled at him, and said "Mada mada gambare".
He makes her favorite meals and serves for her too, but of course, her dish is never touched.
He knows that, but he can't stop it.
So he is the one who murmur "you're not fair" because she can see him but he can't see her.

I'm sad that the cute couple in "Niji" ends up like this, but Nino seems he like this theme as he sang "Kako" with same theme.

Yup. ylunio and quin_tessen_ce already discussed that above. I wouldn't say that she has passed away, just that they broke up. And this isn't a direct continuation to "Niji". Just that they have similar themes (which seems to be a Nino-thing.) He certainly seems to regret how things turned out, but it's not as heart-wrenching as it would have been if she's passed away.

It's just like Nino to make us think so hard about his solos.

somehow it reminded me of NIJI...there are words here that relate to NIJI ^^
awww nino...as always...your lyrics always come from your heart...or your own experiences perhaps?
there are times when i think how many heartaches have nino experienced that somehow he gets to translate them into songs?
nino...you had me at "君は。。。" <33333

Haha, I love this song. And he wrote the lyrics like he tells story. That's what make it more special, especially if he has someone in his mind. I hope he will sing this while playing piano.

Ah, thank you for translating btw.. :)
