CALLING
氷室京介 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

眠れぬ夜をいくつ数えたら
俺たち たどり着くだろう
どれだけの命なくしたとき
争いは終わるのだろう
歴史の上をころがるだけの
救えない道化師たち
いつか誰かが言ってたように
答えは風のなか
そむけた顔をいくつ打たれたら
気づかぬふりやめるのか
どれほどの苦しみに耐えたら
笑顔は自由になるのか
錆びた鎖につながれたまま
またしっぽをまくのなら
いつか誰かが言ってたように
答えは風のなか
ふりしぼる声と
握りしめるその手で
運命はきっと変わる時を待っている
ちっぼけな愛のささやかな力で
悲しみはいつも
抱かれるのを待っている

嘘のパズルをならべかえてる
哀れなペテン師たち
不器用さを器用にふるまう
愚かなロマンチス卜たち
歴史がなにも語らなくなる
そんな日がくる予感に
いつか誰かが言ってたように
答えは風のなか
ふりしぼる声と
握りしめるその手で
運命はきっと変わる時を待っている
ちっぽけな愛のささやかな力で




悲しみはいつも
抱かれるのを待っている

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of 氷室京介's song "CALLING" reflect on the constant struggles that come with life and the desire for answers to difficult questions. The song starts by asking how many sleepless nights must one endure before they can achieve their goals. The singer wonders how many lives must be lost before conflicts can come to an end. He speaks of the helpless clowns who roll on the pages of history, unable to save anyone. The answers to life's difficult questions are elusive - they're like the wind, never to be caught.


The singer also talks about the pain and suffering one must endure to find happiness. He asks how many fists must one take to the face before turning the cheek. He wonders how much suffering one must endure before they can find freedom to smile. The idea of being chained to a rusting chain and wagging one's tail like a dog seems to represent the difficulties and struggles of life.


The song ends on a hopeful note, as the singer speaks of the power of love to change one's fate. He believes that even the smallest love can help one overcome the sadness that waits for them. Fate waits for the right moment to change, and the singer hopes that this will happen through the small but powerful force of love.
