Boy
DAOKO Lyrics


T-O-K-Y-O, answer, by all means
Again today this town is noisy. Hachiko's statue, the symbol of peace
Lost children going every which way
The scornful youth and vagrants alike
Intersection, scramble, oxygen running out
Oh? This is a turning point
I don't know this fork in the road, come quickly
It's straight at the red light, the din of the town, harder to breathe
Umm, umm, this mumbling maze... I'm sick of it
The reverberating sirens, and pretend yells,
In the aftermath of this ruined world, let's go
In front of the exit, a shining person, a hint to life
Is what we'll surely find

Hey BOY
Don't look so sad
I don't want to see that look
Instead of stopping and worrying
Come on, your story, let me hear the rest
Take a huge, deep breath and shout
BOY! BOY! BOY! BOY!

Painted over with green paint, my darling
Students dressed up in the latest fashion
Tired Father returning from work
A part time job desperately distributing tissues
And the high school girls showing underwear
Everyone, everyone has energy
Because I can feel their will to live and
It's shining, living in the now
I am a small bird in the middle of a big road
Far from a shining star
Raining Shibuya, covered by an umbrella
Painted colorfully, the puddles are somewhat
Just a bit, bright to me. What I want now
Was tutted at by that girl who just left 109
Un-discouraged mentality

Hey BOY
Don't look so sad
I don't want to see that look
Instead of stopping and worrying
Come on, your story, let me hear the rest

Spit on the ground and chewed my gum
The blossomed moon, cracks and breaks apart
The center of town is crowded too
Being caught persistently is disheartening
Obviously a lot will happen in life
I'm addressing the weakened hearts
If even just your surroundings are depressed, it's genuinely over
These things called people are strange things
Straight through other people, a connecting circle

Hey BOY
Don't look so sad
I don't want to see that look
Instead of stopping and worrying
Come on, your story, let me hear the rest
Take a huge, deep breath and shout
BOY! BOY! BOY! BOY!

Hey BOY
Don't look so sad
I don't want to see that look

Yes, a connecting circle, a clogged hole
Because we can say "see you tomorrow"
Let's raise our glasses to new encounters
Let's guide this town's stores that we're proud of

I always feel a bit sad when the chorus hits. DAOKO sounds like she's on the verge of tears at that point, moreso near the end...

SHSL Ear Bleeder

@Sanny Goosave
Hrhr, I can see the context of that!


It somehow feels lonelier now...

サニャSanny

Which is funny in a way, because she sings "hey boy, don't look so sad", so it's almost like she sings to you, lol

sara otaku

daoko's songs are so deep ♥

Étienne Caron

Never thought i would see a canadiens t-shirt in tokyo (unless from some canadian tourist), I can die happily now (ps the song is fucking awesome, daoko is my new best thing ever)

109から出てきたギャルに舌打ちされたってめげないメンタリティって歌詞が若いころ凄く印象的だったなぁ。日常を生きていくのに大切なのってそういうちょっとした事なんだろうなって…!若者目線なDAOKOがかっこよかった…

C.D.- Metal

one of the best Daoko songs I have heard yet

Nothing

daoko's music is like, good music... combined with asmr
