My Painting

Words, Music & Arrangement by Kobayashi Takeshi

Wait Dare yori suki demo ima no mama ga ii Aserazuni
(I love you more than anyone, but I like the way things are now
I'm not in any hurry)
Stop Kotae wa nai kedo watashi Single girl
(Although there is no answer I am a single girl)

Iroiro iwaretemo wakaranaku naru
(Even though I am told various things I do not understand)
Kanashii kimochi dake nokotteku wa
(Only sad feelings remain)
Nanairo ni hikareba biizu ga haneru Mujuuryoku ni yureteiru
(Beads jump when they shine in the seven prismatic colors
They sway in weightlessness)

Kagayaku howaito buruu kimochi wa Masshiro ni
(Shining white blue feeling is [turning into] pure white)
Sukina toki ni sukina iro de My Painting
([Painting] My Painting whenever I like and with the colors I like)

Tokidoki samishii toki Naniyori no tokkou
(Sometimes lonely times is the best medicine)
Dokidoki suru koto ga Tokimeku koto
(Heart beats for love)*
Nanairo ni hikareba machi mo yorokobi Uchuusen ga machi ni naru
(Even the street is in joy if it shines in the seven prismatic colors
The space ship becomes a town)

Dakara ima
(So now)

Wait Dare yori suki demo ima no mama ga ii Aserazuni
(I love you more than anyone, but I like the way things are now
I'm not in any hurry)
Stop Kotae wa nai kedo watashi Single girl
(Although there is no answer I am a single girl)

Koi no tame Ai no tame ni
(For the sake of love)
Yume to wakattemo shinjitai
(Even though I know it's a dream I want to believe)
Koi no tame Ai no tame ni
(For the sake of love)
Jibun no kimochi wo shinjiteitai kara
(Because I want to believe in my own feelings)

Wait Dare yori suki demo ima no mama ga ii Aserazuni
(I love you more than anyone, but I like the way things are now
I'm not in any hurry)
Stop Kotae wa nai kedo watashi Single girl
(Although there is no answer I am a single girl)

Itsuka Happy girl
(Someday [I'll be a] Happy girl)

* Literally, both dokidoki suru and tokimeku means "throb; beat fast", but tokimeku has the connotation of the feeling of one's heart beating fast when a person is in love.
