Shinjiru mono ga tada hitotsu aru
Kako no tori janai


Close your eyes and listen carefully...
Take in the images...

A melody rings out through the sky,
A melody that guides us
And will span the ages, into the future.

The morning sun is rising over the green savanna...
A herd of impala run by... [1]
I'm standing
Amid a beat
That someone is drumming out.

For now, let's lock up
Any sadness or irritation.

Do you want to get on this boat too?
Would you mind
If our journey goes on forever?

1962 -- A shout is born [2]
In the corner of a port town.
I stand alone in a pub at midnight
With no other customers.

1969 -- Love and peace overflow [2]
Amid the morning mist.
I watch the guitarist
As he sings the national anthem.

Come on, let's set sail...
It's our turn now, let's gently
Put up the sail.

1999 -- Our humble band sets out [2]
Walking from this street.
We don't know what we can do, but
Can you hear us?

There's just one thing that we believe --
That's enough these days.
There's just one thing that we believe --
We're not caged birds.
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[1] An impala is an African, deer-like animal. You can learn more (and see pictures!!) on its Wikipedia page.

[2] Stranger (who did his own "translation" of the song) claimed these dates are "historic" because they relate to The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix. So I did some research...and he might be right. The Beatles got their first record deal in 1962, and Jimi Hendrix was the headliner/main act of the 1969 Woodstock Festival.

     And of course, 1999 was when Do As Infinity debuted. =)
