Okaeri – Ayaka


Late last year I was watching a jdorama which one of my officemates downloaded. The drama was called Zettai Kareshi (Absolute Boyfriend). This drama was based on a the Japanese Manga of the same title. It was a story of a girl who had the chance to try out a “special appliance” (a robot which was made according to the specifications of the owner’s ideal boyfriend) which was made by a company named Kronus Heaven. At first the girl doesn’t want the appliance but later on she falls in love with her “Night” in shining armor — who is in fact a robot.

This drama’s OST is one of my favorites. The ending song is entitled Okaeri (which means welcome home). It was sang by one of my favorite Jpop artists, Ayaka. Ayaka herself wrote this song for the drama (she wrote it together with her music producer).

Okaeri – Lyrics (Romanji)

Okaeri sweet home
Kaeru basho yeah ai wo arigatou

Mata heiki na furi wo shite
Kanashimi no iro wo nuritsubushite waratte shimaun desu
Shinjiru koto no taisetsusa wakatteru no ni
Iza to iu toki utagatte shimaun desu

Karappo na karada nagareru toki ni
Uite shimausou ni naru kedo
Anata no koto dakishimetai
Kono kimochi ga tsukiugogokasu no

Okaeri I’m home
Hitokoto de mitasareru kokoro
Okaeri sweet home
Kaeru basho yeah ai wo arigatou
Sweet home

Jibun no koto bakari wo kangaeru otona wa zuruin da to
Omotte itan desu
Demo hisshi de kaeru koto wo
Sakende iru hito mo irun da to yatto shittan desu

Atarimae no shiawase nanka kono sekai ni hitotsu mo nai
Anata no tame sou omoeta
Kono kimochi ga tsukiugogokasu no

Okaeri I’m home
Supiido ga kasoku shiteku mainichi
Okaeri sweet home
Kawaranai zutto aru keshiki
Sweet home

Sagashite nakushita
Kokoro no kizu ga
Tachimukau tsuyosa ni kawareta no wa
“Okaeri” ga atta kara

Okaeri I’m home
Hitokoto de mitasareru kokoro
Okaeri sweet home
Kaeru basho yeah ai wo arigatou
Sweet home

Okaeri I’m home
Daijoubu anata ga iru kara
Okaeri sweet home
Mattete ne mousugu tsuku kara
Sweet home

Okaeri Transalation (translation c/o kiwi-musume)

Welcome home, sweet home
Thank you for giving me a home, yeah, and your love

Once again I pretend I don’t care
Blot out the colours of my sadness and smile
I know how important it is to trust you
But when it really matters, I start to have doubts

When this feeling runs through my empty body
I feel like I’m floating
But I want to hold you
This feeling inspires me

Welcome home, I’m home
Those words are all it takes to make me feel content
Welcome home, sweet home
Thank you for giving me a home, yeah, and your love
Sweet home

I thought that those adults who only thought about themselves
Weren’t playing fair
But I’ve finally realised that there are people who are screaming out loud
That they’re doing all they can to change

There is not one happiness in this world that can be taken for granted
You’ve made me think that
This feeling inspires me

Welcome home, I’m home
My days are getting faster
Welcome home, sweet home
This scenery won’t change, it’ll always be there
Sweet home

The scars in my heart
From searching and losing
The reason I was able to turn them into the strength to face everything
Was because I had that “Welcome home”

Welcome home, I’m home
Those words are all it takes to make me feel content
Welcome home, sweet home
Thank you for giving me a home, yeah, and your love
Sweet home

Welcome home, I’m home
It’s OK, I’ve got you
Welcome home, sweet home
Wait for me, I’ll be there soon
Sweet home

** i did not make the enlgish transalation, if you would post the lyrics online, please dont forget to credit her :D.. thanks kiwi musume for the translations 😀
