Music Is Mine
Nujabes Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm blind man of my own world
You're blind man of your own world
Because we don't know what we are
But we can tell we can dance

Music is mine
Music is yours
And world is mine
World is yours
What is life?
What is joy?




What is mine
What is yours

Overall Meaning

In Nujabes's song "Music Is Mine," the lyrics convey a sense of self-reflection and introspection. The opening lines, "I'm blind man of my own world, You're blind man of your own world," suggest that both the singer and the listener are caught up in their own individual realities. They acknowledge the limitations of understanding their true identities and purposes in life. However, despite this uncertainty, they find solace in the power of music and its ability to bring people together.


The repetition of the phrases "Music is mine, Music is yours" and "World is mine, World is yours" emphasizes the universal nature of music. It is a shared experience that transcends individual differences and connects people on a deeper level. The questions posed in the subsequent lines, "What is life? What is joy? What is mine? What is yours?" highlight the existential pondering that often accompanies the search for meaning and belonging.


The overall message of the song seems to be that while we may not fully comprehend ourselves or the world around us, music can serve as a unifying force, offering a sense of belonging and purpose. It reminds us that in the vastness of existence, music has the power to create harmony and bring people together, regardless of individual differences or uncertainties.
