Song Lyric Sunday: G.I.R.L.S.

As mentioned last week, I dislike any attempt to generalise the behaviour of males and females so I’m creating my own acronym once again.

Good-bye
Insecurities
Reject
Lingering
Sadness

Many of us have parts of us we wish to hide. Parts of us which we feel are not right and cannot be shown to the world. We wish so much that we could change ourselves to better fit into society. To enable us to function properly and interact with others without constantly worrying that our secret flaws or personality traits would leak out of our mask.

We continually think, if only I were better.

However, if we magically became better or took on a different personality all together… we would not really be our own “self” anymore would we?

My song choice for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday by Helen is “Tarareba” by amazarashi.

Tarareba

If it turned out that I was really talented,
I would create a single world-famous masterpiece.
I would earn enough money for the rest of my life.
And then I would waste every penny of it until I die.

If I was a king and ruled over the land.
I would make all the people that I don’t like disappear.
But then that might mean I’ll be the only person left.
Maybe it’d be faster if the one who disappeared was me.

And if I saw you sleeping right next to me,
I feel like I just might be okay as the person I am now,
A person who bullshits about all that he’ll never have.

If I found out I was actually kind of smart,
I would gladly go to college and earn my degree.
I would find a great job like my parents always wanted.
Then maybe they would finally be proud of their son.

If deep down I was truly a kindhearted man.
I would help all the people around me in trouble.
To be honest, I’m sick of feeling like a piece of shit,
Whenever I see something bad happen and pretend I didn’t.

If I happened to be a confident speaker,
I’d be a host on one of those late-night radio shows.
And no matter how rough of a day the audience had,
I would be able to put a smile back on their faces.

And if I saw you sleeping right next to me,
I feel like I just might be okay as the person I am now,
A person who bullshits about all that he’ll never have.

If I was one of those expert musicians,
I would write lyrics that transcend language,
And create melodies never before heard.
I’ve imagined a life like that more than once.

If I had become the world’s best physician,
I would cure my father of his crippling disease.
Of course, I’m too embarrassed to say such a thing out loud.
I guess it’s true what they say; like father, like son.

And if I saw you sleeping right next to me,
I feel like I just might be okay as the person I am now,
A person who bullshits about all that he’ll never have.

If I was the god of this world instead.
I would rid people of their negative emotions.
If only the good ones remained, we would laugh forever.
But I don’t think that would be such a luxury.

If someday I could be born into this world anew,
I think I’d like another chance at the life I have now,
And live so I don’t repeat my mistakes and regrets.
But without them, would what was left even be me?
