But this morning, I'm listening to my favorite song in the world, Owari naki tabi, by Mr. Children.
This song always puts me in the mood to go out and conquer the world, whatever my daily task is--finishing a manuscript, going running, cleaning the bathroom.
I was looking for an English translation online but none of them make sense. Sigh. You're going to have to trust me; it's awesome. In a way, it's about writing a novel. This is the second chorus:
If you think about things difficultly (Muzukashiku kangaedasu to)
Everything's going to end up turning yucky to you (Kekkyoku subete ga iya ni natte)
and you're going to want to thorw it all away (Sotto sotto nigedashitaku naru kedo)
But the higher the cliff face, the better it feels (Takakereba takai kabe no hou ga )
when you climb to the top (nobotta toki kimochi ii)
You think I'm cheesy? Come on, you knew that before. You think I'm cheesy and you have a problem with that? Wait, have you been ever read this blog before?! You love Mr. Children? Ok, we can be friends.
