Ben Howard – Keep Your Head Up

I SPENT MY TIME WATCHING
THE SPACES THAT HAVE GROWN BETWEEN US
AND I CUT MY MIND ON SECOND BEST
THE SCARS THAT COME WITH THE GREENNESS
I GAVE MY EYES TO THE BOTTOM
STILL THE SEABED WOULDN’T LET ME IN
AND I TRIED MY BEST TO EMBRACE THE DARKNESS
IN WHICH I SWIM

僕らのあいだにできた空間を
見ていたんだ
諦めた願いに痛む心
自分の未熟さがもたらした傷
下に目をやれば
海底の入り口は閉ざされたまま
心を浸す暗闇を
受け入れようとしたんだ

NOW WALKIN’ BACK DOWN THIS MOUNTAIN
WITH THE STRENGTH OF A TURNING TIDE
THE WIND SO SOFT AT MY SKIN
THE SUN SO HOT UPON MY SIDE
LOOKING OUT AT THIS HAPPINESS
I SEARCH FOR BETWEEN THE SHEETS
FEELING BLIND, TO REALIZE
ALL I WAS SEARCHING FOR WAS ME

潮力に身を任せ
この山を下っていく
風は肌にやさしく
太陽は鋭く照りつける
心に感じる幸せを見つめながら
ページをめくり 探し求めるうちに
いつのまにか気がついたんだ
探し求めていたのは ほかの誰でもなく
自分自身だったことに

KEEP YOUR HEAD UP, KEEP YOUR HEART STRONG
KEEP YOUR MIND SET, KEEP YOUR HAIR LONG
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP, KEEP YOUR HEART STRONG
KEEP YOUR MIND SET IN YOUR WAYS
KEEP YOUR HEART STRONG

前を向け 何も恐れるな
揺るがない心を持て 髪は長いままでいい
前を向け 何も恐れるな
いつだって 心のままに突き進め
何も恐れるな

I SAW A FRIEND OF MINE THE OTHER DAY
AND HE TOLD ME THAT MY EYES WERE GLEAMING
I SAID I’D BEEN AWAY
AND HE KNEW THE DEPTHS I WAS MEANING
IT FELT SO GOOD TO SEE HIS FACE
THE COMFORT INVESTED IN MY SOUL
TO FEEL THE WARMTH OF HIS SMILE
WHEN HE SAID ‘I’M HAPPY TO HAVE YOU HOME’

この前 会った友達に言われたんだ
目が輝いてるって
おれは答えたよ 遠くに行っていたんだと
その本当の意味が やつにはわかってた
無性にうれしくなったよ 顔を見てたら
救われたような気がしてさ
やつは優しく笑ってこう言ったんだ
「戻ってきてくれてうれしいよ」

KEEP YOUR HEAD UP…

BECAUSE I’LL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU THE SAME
EYES LIKE WILD FLOWERS WITH YOUR DEMONS OF CHANGE
MAY YOU FIND HAPPINESS THERE
MAY ALL YOUR HOPES ALL TURN OUT RIGHT
MAY YOU FIND WARMTH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

記憶のなかの君はいつまでも同じまま
野の花のような瞳 移り気な心
君に幸運が訪れ
願いがすべて実を結び
夜更けに温もりが君を包みますように
