Alive -Syuntaro Tanigawa-

TO LIVE
To be alive

To be alive now

It’s a thirsty throat

It’s dazzling sunshine filtering through foliage

It’s remembering a certain melody suddenly

It’s sneezing

It’s holding hands with you

To be alive

To be alive now

It’s a miniskirt

It’s a planetarium

It’s Johann Strauss

It’s Picasso

It’s the Alps

It’s encountering all the beautiful things

And

It’s carefully refusing the hidden evil

To be alive

To be alive now

It’s being able to cry

It’s being able to laugh

It’s being able to be angry

It’s being free

To be alive

To be alive now

It’s a dog barking in the distance now

It’s the Earth traveling around now

It’s the first cry raised somewhere now

It’s the soldier getting hurt somewhere now

It’s the swings shaking now

It’s the now that’s passing now

To be alive

To be alive now

It’s birds flying

It’s the sea roaring

It’s snails crawling

It’s people loving one another (falling in love)

The warmth of your hand

It’s life
