Hideaki Tokunaga - That Old Broken Radio



That old broken radio, a song that some of you may remember from the early 1990s. I don't think I have seen this video, isn't Youtube great.

Music and lyrics by Hideaki Tokunaga

 作詩:徳永英明 作曲:徳永英明

何も聞こえない 何も聞かせてくれない
僕の身体が昔より 大人になったからなのか
ベッドに置いていた 初めて買った黒いラジオ
いくつものメロディーが いくつもの時代を作った

※思春期に少年から 大人に変わる
道を探していた 汚れもないままに
飾られた行きばのない 押し寄せる人波に
本当の幸せ教えてよ 壊れかけのRadio※

いつも聞こえてた いつも聞かせてくれてた
窓ごしに空をみたら かすかな勇気が生まれた
ラジオは知っていた 僕の心をノックした
恋に破れそうな胸 やさしい風が手を振った

華やいだ祭りの後 静まる街を背に
星を眺めていた けがれもないままに
遠ざかる故郷の空 帰れない人波に
本当の幸せ教えてよ 壊れかけのRadio

ギターを弾いていた 次のコードも判らずに
迷子になりそうな夢 素敵な歌が導いた

(※くり返し)

華やいだ祭りの後 静まる街を背に
星を眺めていた けがれもないままに
遠ざかる故郷の空 帰れない人波に
本当の幸せ教えてよ 壊れかけのRadio
遠ざかる溢れた夢 帰れない人波に
本当の幸せ教えてよ 壊れかけのRadio

 

Translation

I can't hear anything from you, you're not telling me anything
My body has grown into an adults since way back then
The first black radio that I bought, and took into bed with me
So many melodies have made up so many eras

Changing from a boy going through puberty, into an adult
The road that I searched for was pure
In the waves of people that are advancing to their plain destinations
Tell me what real happiness is, barely working radio

I could always hear you, you always told me something
When I looked at the sky on the other side of the window, a faint courage was born
The radio knew that, it knocked on my heart
My heart feels like it's worn out from love, the gentle wind waves at me

After a brilliant festival, xxx
Gazing at the stars, still pure
The far off sky of my hometown, the waves of people that can't go home
Tell me what real happiness is, barely working radio

I was playing the guitar, not knowing what the next chord would be
My dreams that seem to be becoming stray children, were guided by a wonderful song

Changing from a boy going through puberty, into an adult
The road that I searched for was pure
In the waves of people that are advancing to their plain destinations
Tell me what real happiness is, barely working radio

After the brilliant festival, xxx
Gazing at the stars, still pure
The far off sky of my hometown, the waves of people that can't go home
Tell me what real happiness is, barely working radio
