Time Machine

Composer: Jay Chou (周杰倫) (周杰伦)
Lyricist: Vincent Fang (方文山) (方文山)


The daisy at the corner of the wall in the breeze
The sweet smelling fragrance of the Jasmine flower blossoming
I close my eyes and go back to the past
The table and chairs are the boundary line
Yet after the lesson we come together
I just can't leave you
We've been riding on the slide all along
We agreed we would walk to the end
I thought we were going to be apart from this point onwards
I use the date on the blackboard
To count down on finding you

It slowly becomes clear
Turns out that missing you
Is news with sugar added to it
I use a pencil
I draw very attentively
Sketching the weather in that year
The Summer with chirping of cicadas
I want to meet you

That wish in my childhood was for a time machine
I can be happy all along till the end
And not gasp for air
I put on a Taketombo
And pass through that forest
I open the Dokodemo door to find you
We go on holiday together

That wish in my childhood was for a time machine
The Tatami that you and I rolled on
The smell is familiar
All the memories
Are in Doraemon's pocket
The tacit understanding we have swinging on the swing together
The sweetness is continued in the wind

Some words are always too late
They have been at the bottom of my heart all along
I wanted to look at you attentively
But you passed by
And had already left

It slowly becomes clear
Turns out that missing you
Is news with sugar added to it
I use a pencil
I draw very attentively
I sketch the weather on that day
The Summer with chirping of cicadas
I want to meet you

That wish in my childhood was for a time machine
I can be happy all along till the end
And not gasp for air
I put on a Taketombo
And pass through that forest
I open the Dokodemo door to find you
We go on holiday together

That wish in my childhood was for a time machine
The Tatami that you and I rolled on
The smell is familiar
All the memories
Are in Doraemon's pocket
The tacit understanding we have swinging on the swing together
The sweetness is continued in the wind
