Sunday J-POP (Japanese Pop) – SUNSET By Blu-Swing

Another Sunday J-pop time! It has been raining, and the temperature is just over 16 degree, as if summer has gone…although trees, plants and flowers must feel joyful. As I just feel like seeing the sunset. I have selected this song. Today I introduce a song called [Sunset].

Sunset by Blu-Swing

Blu-Swing is a Japanese band and active since 2008. Actually this band’s genre is stated as Jazz. This song [Sunset] reminds me of Shakataku sound, specially its piano solo part. It’s jazzy, funky and a bit of city pop blended. Her looks is rather cool but she has an contrast voice from the way she looks.

Sunset

BLU-SWING

It will melt
溶けていくわ

The sun setting on the horizon
地平線沈む太陽

Grow long
長く伸びた

Hand-to-hand silhouette
手と手重ねるシルエット

I drew it in the sky for an eternal moment
永遠の一瞬空に描いた

It’s a very colorful illusion
それはとても色鮮やかな幻

If you can hug me
抱きしめられるのなら

In my arms again
もう一度腕の中

Dye the world lightly
淡く世界を染める

Sunset wrap me up
Sunset 私を包んで

Dance to the moon
月に踊る

Thoughts are like waves coming and going
思いは行き交う波のよう

Be attracted
惹かれていく

I want to be shaken like this
このまま揺られていたいのに

Follow the scent of rain or memory
雨の香りか記憶を辿る

This sadness knew you (If it is me I would say this sadness is because I have known you).
この切なさはあなたを知ったから

The mundane days are now
ありふれた日々が今

Bleeding beyond the sea
海の彼方へにじむ

Dye the ephemeral world
儚く世界を染める

Sunset wrap me up
Sunset 私を包んで

If you can hug me
抱きしめられるのなら

In my arms again
もう一度腕の中

Dye the world lightly
淡く世界を染める

Sunset wrap me up
Sunset 私を包んで

My thought

I was expecting this song to be cheerful when I saw the title and heard its tune. It was not until I read its lyric have I realized how sad this song is. She is looking for something warm and be comforted by the sunset to heal her sorrow. Nevertheless the sound to me makes me dancing.

Hope you like it and enjoy it! Thank you for watching!!!
