Lotus Root Pattern words and music by Tomoko SHIMASAKI
I go to Kichijoji station to go shopping, I'm dreaming about living together,
I want bowls with lotus root patterns, so I take notice of them.
I go to Shimo-kitazawa for my part-time job, rather than hesitating when I could quit,
I mastered my job skills fairly well, because I worked without excuses.
In my seventh year since coming up to Tokyo, I stop because someone calls me,
A friend who I got to know in Osaka gets off the same train.
What have I come here for, left my hometown,
I've never forgotten it, but I'm afraid to remember it.
I go to Shibuya to perform today. This is the first performance of the year,
There is only a small audience, it makes me come to my senses.
Please keep cool and look around, you may actually be mortified,
You are offended, sulky and run away because you don't have confidence and are scared about things.
I want to live while singing my songs with all my heart in front of lots of people,
I want to sing loudly to my heart's content in front of lots of people.
I go to Kichijoji station to go shopping, I was dreaming about living together,
The bowls with lotus root patterns are sold out, they have disappeared.
