[Romanized Lyrics] Hirai Ken – Shashin


I always thought that this song is a bit sad but I never knew that this song was written by Hirai Ken for his late father. I was glad I watched the 14th March Music Station where he appeared as one of the guests. He sang Shashin during that show. Before he sang the song, he explained the origins of the song. He said to the host that one day he woke up in the middle of the night and he found himself looking at the family pictures and he was really sad (I guess that’s when he composed the song ?). Then the host asked him the pictures, were they taken when they were at a beach (as mentioned in the song). He said yes and they were taken when he was around 5. He also mentioned that he looked like his father then (which was mentioned in the song also).

When he sang the song, oh gosh ~~ he sang it to the point that he almost cried 😦 … There’s english translation to the song (because this show is already subbed to English) but I didn’t note down the translation. Zannen desu.

Hirai Ken – Shashin

shashin tate no anata ni dondon niteiku boku ga
sukoshi terekusai keredo sukoshi ureshii

muchuu de kakedeshita umibe se ga todokanai tokoro de
shigamitsuita ano senaka wa ima wa mou nai

anata no se o oikoshita ima mo todokanai tokoro wa aru
kodoku na yoru mo yuutsu na asa mo shigamitsuku mo no wa nai

KIRAKIRA kagayaku ashita o minamo ga terashite ita
anata no me ni ano umi wa dou utsutte tandarou

tokidoki kotae ga hoshiku naru tokidoki nigetaku naru
okotteru kana akireteru kana
hoshi ni natta anata wa zurui yo

kuwae TABAKO to BIIRU de boku o mite wa waratteta
anata no ko de yokatta to kokoro kara omou

umi no you ni hirokute sora no you ni tookute
anata no ko de yokatta to kokoro kara omou
