Flume [feat. T.Shirt] Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Give me the tank-top ほんま tank-top for yourself
もう I can't stand it 辛抱 over 辛抱 こえて get tank-top

Help me! The tank-top 足りへん もう全然 足りへんねんな
We need the tank-top 堪忍 安心したいな 必要なんですわ

大きい声 合法で発し going crazy
Jump and run せなあかんな we are こうやって生こう we go

そんな殺生 俺ら一生 こんな感じで がんじがらめって
ことはないって 信じとるけど 心配やけん go fight やんけ

Congratulations! 早く言いとーうて もどかしい気はやる
やむなく病む泣くような夜も越えていきたい でも満身創痍です

思い出さんでいい過去 捨てよ
Ready 前しか見とらんで 準備万端っすよ

Give me! Give me! Give me! Give me! Give me the tank-top!
愛と友情と punk rock 全部大事 それとあと tank-top
何もしたくない やる気でない なんて言うてましたのに
あれやりたい これやりたいが 止まらへんねん 今は
Give me! Give me! Give me! Give me! Give me the tank-top!
脳と体が求めている tank-top を!
うるさくてくそ速い音楽を もっと浴びるように 着るように 聴く

思い出さんでいい過去 捨てよ
Ready 前しか見とらんでな

Give me the tank-top ほんま tank-top for yourself
もう I can't stand it 辛抱 over 辛抱 こえて get tank-top

Give me! Give me! Give me! Give me! Give me the tank-top!
愛と友情と punk rock 全部大事 でも俺は tank-top
さあ 取り戻せ自尊心よ 笑いながら泣いた日よ
取り戻せ come back kids, and our life

We need the tank-top
やっぱ俺らまだ逃れられませんわ




ほらまた帰っといで 激しく飛び込め
いつだって 優しく包み込む tank-top again
