bird – HIBISCUS (ハイビスカス)

I always loved bird’s songs ever since I first stumbled upon “GAME” (produced by Shinichi Osawa, as Mondo Grosso) back in 2010. However, her music is rather hard to find, due to her generic stage name (her real name doesn’t yield too many results, either.) She has a very unique and powerful voice — maybe you can call her the “Sade of Japan”.

As such, she’s always been a music idol of mine, because soulful/jazz is the style that I found seems to work best with my own voice (it’s a bonus that I love it, too!)

I was convinced that “髪をほどいて” (Untie my hair) was my new favourite, until I chanced upon “ハイビスカス” (Hibiscus).

ハイビスカス
作詞:bird
作曲:松本良喜

あなたは光る砂を蹴って
わたしはこれまでを影に脱ぎ捨てる
小鳥のハミングを髪飾りに
あぶない青い果実 ひとつめしあがれ

平凡だった唇が輝きだす
どうかこんな想いを指先からそっと

目と目合うたび 恋の波が襲う
戸惑う気持ち さらってくれますか

あの夏のキス よみがえりはじめる
忘れかけてた あなたにも

クロスのピアスのその先の
潤んだまなざしは何を見てきたの

ときめきをね 胸に受け
この広がる空に高くあげれば
しなやかに飛べる

目と目合うたび 恋の波が襲う
戸惑う気持ち さらってくれますか

あの夏のキス よみがえりはじめる
忘れかけてた あなたにも

グラス傾けて 今を飲み干すの
わたしの心の火を 奪わないで

どこまでも
ときめきをね 胸に受け
この広がる空に高くあげれば
しなやかに飛べる

目と目合うたび 恋の波が襲う
戸惑う気持ち さらってくれますか

砂の足跡 ハイビスカス揺れる
枯れてゆくまえに 記憶の首飾り

あの夏のキス よみがえりはじめる
始まりはそうね 突然に

HAIBISUKASU
sakushi: bird

anata wa hikaru suna wo kette
watashi wa kore made wo kage ni nugisuteru
kotori no HAMINGU wo kami kazari ni
abunai aoi kajitsu hitotsu meshiagare

heibon datta kuchibiru ga kagayakidasu
douka konna omoi wo yubisaki kara sotto

me to me au tabi koi no nami ga osou
tomadou kimochi saratte kure masu ka

ano natsu no KISU yomigaerihajimeru
wasurekakete ta anata ni mo

KUROSU no PIASU no sono saki no
urun da manazashi wa nani wo mi te ki ta no

tokimeki wo ne mune ni uke
kono hirogaru sora ni takaku agere ba
shinayaka ni toberu

me to me au tabi koi no nami ga osou
tomadou kimochi saratte kure masu ka

ano natsu no kisu yomigaerihajimeru
wasurekakete ta anata ni mo

GURASU katamuke te ima wo nomihosu no
watashi no kokoro no hi wo ubawa nai de

doko made mo
tokimeki wo ne mune ni uke
kono hirogaru sora ni takaku agere ba
shinayaka ni toberu

me to me au tabi koi no nami ga osou
tomadou kimochi saratte kure masu ka

suna no ashiato HAIBISUKASU yureru
kare te yukumae ni kioku no kubikazari

ano natsu no KISU yomigaerihajimeru
hajimari wa sou ne totsuzen ni
