STRAWBERRY JAM – TOKYO TASTE (2001)

lyrics and music by AKI

Another request @sorrowsofsatan​ sent me a while back! Early 2000s J-Rock, aged like a fine wine.

Translation and notes under the cut:

Standing tall, brave, and sturdy towards the sky
Skyscrapers, their chests puffed out
The taste of Tokyo –
That cool mood still wedged in

To stampedes of busy people

Diluted communication
Instead of the mail, calls, and news flying about in the air
The only thing I beg you not to lose sight of
Is the whereabouts of the love I give, as I burn inside

Action and klaxon, echoing in the city
Let me be alone now please

Notice me
As I sway gently back and forth
Won’t you see through me
To the thoughts I hid
Inside my pupils

I want it bad, so bad
Kindness over heartrending misery
This feeling blocks up my chest
The courage to be frank
It’s not that I forgot love
I remember those warm sensations
The only one I want to be into is you
Nothing but liars
Tokyo Taste

Glittering mornings, afternoons, evenings
A Crazy City that doesn’t know silence
Slipping through shoulders colliding
I’ll seize real love

The feeling I get as I listen – high tension and motion
Let me join you now please

Notice me
As I circle you again and again
Riding on the wind,
My feelings floating on the air
Won’t you feel them?

I’m lost, so lost
Sweet kisses over words
Just a bit of happiness
Like when the person you gaze at returns your call
It doesn’t have to be intense love
In shining crimson light
I wanna feel it through my whole body
At lightning speed
Tokyo Taste

I want it bad, so bad
Kindness over heartrending misery
This feeling blocks up my chest
The courage to be frank
It’s not that I forgot love
I remember those warm sensations
The only one I want to be into is you
Nothing but liars
Tokyo Taste
