Double Standard

Romaji Lyrics English Translation

Doko he yuku no ka wakaranai mama
Doko he tsuku no ka wakaranai mama
Tabi wo tsuzuketeta

Rikai sareta furi sareru nara
Gokai sareteitai to negatta
Kokoro tozashiteta

Demo wa kimi wa chigau to iu
Taisetsu na mono wa ima koko ni aru to

Kaze no you ni nagareteitta
Jibun ga tsukutta rule nante
Sakimawari shita iiwake datte
Ushinau koto ga mata kowaku naru kedo
Koko wa mada tabi no tochuu

Doko ni datte isou na tori nara
Doko ni itatte ki ni naranai you ni
Tabi wo tsuzuketeta

Jibun ga dare demo ii to omotta
Eikyou nante shitaku mo nakatta
Hitorikiri datta

Demo kimi wa chigau to iu
“Taisetsu na mono wa zutto soba ni aru to

Kaze no you ni toorisugita
Jibun wa dare demo nakatta darou
Subete wa yume, sore demo ii, to
Ushinau yori mo saki ni mamoreru nara
Koko ga tabun tabi no owari

Tameiki ni me wo tojite
Ashita wo shinjiru shinkokyuu ni kae

Kaze no you ni nagareteitta
Jibun ga tsukutta rule nante
Sakimawari shita iiwake datte
Ushinau koto ga mata kowaku naru kedo
Koko wa mada tabi no tochuu

I had no clue where I was going
No clue where I wanted to be
So I kept on traveling

I made people think they understood me
Whilst hoping that they wouldn’t
My heart was a closed book

But you told me it didn’t have to be that way
That I had things worth caring about

I traveled free as the wind
Because I felt I could make my own rules
And ridding myself of excuses to hide behind
Still seems a scary prospect to me
But my journey’s still just beginning

I felt like if I could fit in anywhere
Then it wouldn’t matter where I found myself
So I kept on traveling

I didn’t care what kind of person I was
I didn’t want to leave my mark on the world
Because I felt so alone

But you told me it didn’t have to be that way
That what really matters lay within me

I was as transient as the wind
Without an identity to call my own
I was happy to think of life as one big dream
But if I cling to that, and don’t cast it away
Then my journey may as well be over

When I sigh, I just close my eyes
And make it a rallying breath to keep me going

I traveled free as the wind
Because I felt I could make my own rules
And ridding myself of excuses to hide behind
Still seems a scary prospect to me
But my journey’s still just beginning

Yeah I dunno why I’m translating a song from goddamn 555 either. My playlist threw it at me and I felt like doing it.
