A Life to Be Envied

Lyrics, Composition, & Arrangement: Hikaru Utada

Through your slight bowing and self-introduction
it's already become clear
that I'll stay married for life with you

We began with each of our life stories,
but I don't really remember the beginning
This won't end overnight

Weirdly endlessly
something begins to overflow
and a life I thought long is suddenly short

Even if today is the last day of my life
even if it's 50 years from now, I was able to meet you, so...
"I was happier than anyone else"
"This was a life to be envied"

Even if today is the last day of my life
even if it's 50 years from now, I was able to meet you, so...
"I was happier than anyone else"
"This was a life to be envied"

I can say it,
no matter how humble I am,
"This was a life to be envied"

I'll stop living a life
just to meet other's expectations
I think this as I replace
the flowers dedicated to the portrait of my deceased mother
If you go before me,
I'll remain faithful to you
If I die first,
I'll smile at my very dying moment

Today's the first day of my life
I'll gaze at you even 50 years from now
"I'm happier than anyone else"
"This was a life to be envied"

I can say it,
no matter how humble I am,
"This was a life to be envied"

I can say it,
no matter, no matter how humble I am,
"This was a life to be envied"
Shitto Sareru Beki Jinsei

Sakushi, Sakkyoku, & Henkyoku: Utada Hikaru

Karui ojigi to jikoshoukai de
Mou wakatte shimatta no
Kono hito to soitogeru koto

Tagai no mi no uebanashi ni hajimari
Hajimari wa yoku oboete nai
Hitoban ja owaranai

Bukimi ni tomedonaki
Nanika ga afuredashi
Nagai to omotteta jinsei kyuu ni mijikai

Kyou ga jinsei no saigo no hi demo
Gojuunengo demo anata ni deaete
Dare yori mo shiawase datta to
Shitto sareru beki jinsei datta to

Kyou ga jinsei no saigo no hi demo

Dare yori mo shiawase datta to
Shitto sareru beki jinsei datta to

Shitto sareru beki jinsei datta to

Hito no kitai ni kotaeru dake no

Haha no iei ni sonaeru hana wo

Anata ni sakidataretara
Anata ni misao wo tateru
Watashi ga saki ni shindara
Imawa no hate de hohoemu

Kyou ga jinsei no saisho no hi da yo
Gojuunengo demo anata wo mitsumete
Dare yori mo shiawase desu to
Shitto sareru beki jinsei deshita to

嫉妬されるべき人生

作詞・作曲・編曲:宇多田ヒカル

軽いお辞儀と自己紹介で
もうわかってしまったの
この人と添い遂げること

互いの身の上話に始まり
始まりはよく覚えてない
一晩じゃ終わらない

不気味にとめどなき
何かが溢れだし
長いと思ってた人生 急に短い

今日が人生の最後の日でも
五十年後でも あなたに出会えて
誰よりも幸せだったと
嫉妬されるべき人生だったと

今日が人生の最後の日でも
五十年後でも あなたに出会えて
誰よりも幸せだったと
嫉妬されるべき人生だったと

言えるよ
どんなに謙遜したとこで
嫉妬されるべき人生だったと

人の期待に応えるだけの
生き方はもうやめる
母の遺影に供える花を
替えながら思う
あなたに先立たれたら
あなたに操を立てる
私が先に死んだら
今際の果てで微笑む

今日が人生の最初の日だよ
五十年後でも あなたを見つめて
誰よりも幸せですと
嫉妬されるべき人生でしたと

言えるよ
どんなに謙遜したとこで
嫉妬されるべき人生だったと

言えるよ
どんなにどんなに謙遜したって
嫉妬されるべき人生でしたと
