[LYRICS] TOKIO - Can we...

From the Tokyo Drive single, released in 2015
Lyrics by Tomoya Nagase
Composed by Tomoya Nagase
Arranged by Tomoya Nagase

KANJI
君はどこか不思議な色を出す
僕に足りない色だから それが…
悲しいことはすぐどこかへ行くから
心配することはないさ 夜空はキレイだよ

Can we be together tonight?(x2)
朝目覚めたら君と一緒にどこか出掛けよう

どこに居ても誰かと居たとしても
君を思い出しているんだ 今も…
君のことは大体理解したつもり
それでもずっと下らない喧嘩も悪くないな

Can we be together tonight?(x2)
君が起きたらいけないからそっと見つめていよう…
Can we be together tonight?(x2)
明日はもっと君と一緒に過ごしてみよう

乱雑無章な心にヤラれそうな夜ばかりだ
君が居てくれたらいいな…
一緒に映画でも観て忘れられんのにな

明日も晴れたら何をしようかな
君はどうかな? それは明日一緒に考えよう

Can we be together tonight?(x2)
きっと明日はもっと君を好きになっているだろう
Can we be together tonight?(x2)
朝目覚めたら君と一緒にどこか出掛けよう

Can we be together tonight?(x5)

ROMAJI
Kimi wa doko ka fushigina iro o dasu
Boku ni tarinai irodakara sore ga…
Kanashii koto wa sugu doko ka e yukukara
Shinpai suru koto wa nai sa yozora wa kirei da yo

Can we be together tonight? (x2)
Asa mezametara kimitoisshoni doko ka dekakeyou

Doko ni ite mo dareka to ita toshite mo
Kimi o omoidashiteirunda ima mo…
Kimi no koto wa daitai rikaishita tsumori
Soredemo zutto kudaranai kenka mo warukunaina

Can we be together tonight? (x2)
Kimi ga okitara ikenaikara sotto mitsumeteiyou…
Can we be together tonight? (x2)
Ashita wa motto kimi to issho ni sugoshite miyou
Ranzatsu mushouna kokoro ni yarare souna yoru bakari da
Kimi ga ite kuretara ii na… issho ni eiga demo mite wasureraren noni na
Ashita mo haretara nani o shiyouka na kimi wa douka na? Sore wa ashita issho ni kangaeyou

Can we be together tonight? (x2)
Kitto ashita wa motto kimi o suki ni natteiru darou
Can we be together tonight? (x2)
Asa mezametara kimi to issho ni doko ka dekakeyou

Can we be together tonight? (x5)

ENGLISH
Wherever you are, you've brought some mysterious colour with you
Because where I am, the colours here are incomplete, and that...
I've decided to let all my tragedies go elsewhere all the same
There's nothing to worry about with the night sky as beautiful as it is

Can we be together tonight?
And when we wake up in the morning, let's go somewhere else together, you and me

No matter where I am and no matter who I'm with
I'm always reminded of you, even now...
I've come to understand the person that you are
But you know, those pointless fights we used to have weren't awful at all

Can we be together tonight?
And for as long as you stay asleep, I'll watch over you lovingly
Can we be together tonight?
And tomorrow, let's spend as much time together as we can, you and me

I know your heart is messy and unsure, but tonight is what it is and nothing more
Because as long as you're here with me, anything is good...
Why don't we watch a film together and forget all the troubles we've had?

If tomorrow ends up sunny, I wonder what we can do
What about you? Let's think about it together

Can we be together tonight?
When tomorrow comes, I know I'll only fall in love with you more and more
Can we be together tonight?
And when we wake up in the morning, let's go somewhere else together, you and me

Can we be together tonight?



First of all, I have no clue what '無章' is so I just guessed that bit. Anyway... this one's my favourite song from the single as far as lyrics go, ha.

I really had to save this for last on account of how much my eyes filled with tears when I listened to it. You should've seen it--I was just sitting with earphones in wiping my eyes like "what the hell? What the hell". I guess it has a lot to do with the fact that I relate to this a lot more than I should in some way or other, but nobody has to know that tragic story of my life.

This really reminds me of Sometimes in the sense that it's got that "we might have failed, but let's give it another chance" kind of feeling. But unlike Sometimes, Tomo isn't the vulnerable one here any more. Sometimes talked about him wanting to be cared for and loved, and Can we... talks about him wanting to care for someone and love them. It kind of makes me wonder if he started on Can we... immediately after working on Sometimes, since he mentioned it took him two? Three? years to get this all written down and finished.

It's really such a sweet song, and it fits his honest, earnest personality to a T. Tomo's language is so simple and the images are so simple and he just never has any façades at all. Like Leader said, he really does wear his heart on his sleeve. ♥

Did anyone hear the part here that sounds like the soft drumming + guitar part in 2008's sugar?
