(lyrics) Motherland

Hello, all you beautiful people! XDDD

It's Tobu Ishi again, and I'm taking a break from throwing my fanfiction at you to lob a song translation instead. Haven't done one for a while, you know. This time around, it's Motherland, by Crystal Kay.

As a bit of a mixer-upper, I've actually taken a stab at singing this one. Be warned; the only microphone available to me was my little brother's cheap external, which he typically uses for yelling insults at other teenage boys in multiplayer FPS games. It is not a nice quality mike, and therefore the recording is rather distorted. If nothing else, though, listen to it as a reference for how to pace yourself if you're going to record your own version.

Motherland
by Crystal Kay
translation by Tobu Ishi


When you leave, it’s always just the same
Give a careless little wave
“Take care” and then you’re gone again
In the end, the only care I have
Is to have you home tomorrow safe and sound

After all, I still believe in love
And I know that life will never take you down
Till the day that all your dreams come true
Look at the stars in space
Keep that smiling face
And don’t forget to pray
‘Cause I’ll be right here waiting

I just wanna be the sky above you
And the sunrise in your eyes
Wanna be the one who hides away your sorrow
Every time you look up to the heavens
Know that I’m still thinking of you
So you’ll know that you will never be alone
So you’ll always have a place to call home

Here at home, it’s not the same alone
But I’m getting through the days
I’m doing fine without you
That’s because these days I’ve seen the truth
All that I can do is be as strong as you

I believe you can do anything
But I see the tears you try so hard to hide
Even when your dreams all fade away
You’re still so strong and true, I wanna be like you
Take your time, love
‘Cause I’ll be right here waiting

Even though you’re crying on the inside
You’re much braver than you know
You can come to me to rest your tired heart, love
Every time I think of you I’m praying for a wonderful tomorrow
Where you’ll find a sleep as peaceful as a child’s

This enormous world we live in ties together everyone
Even the clouds that fly above us disappear on the wind
I watch you walk away

Can you hear me calling you when you’re so far away?
Pouring out the feelings I’m afraid to tell you?

I just wanna be the sky above you
And the sunrise in your eyes
Wanna be the one who hides away your sorrow
Every time you look up to the heavens
Know that I’m still thinking of you
So you’ll know that you will never be alone
So you’ll always have a place to call home

So you’ll always have a place to call home
