Sono Te / その手

Sono Te / その手: “this hand”

sono / その
“this” (roughly)
te / 手
“hand”

“Sono Te” is another one of her indies songs found on vol.best. I can’t picture her singing this in a concert nowadays, so I guess it’s one of those songs that won’t ever get mentioned.

I’d say that this song is one of her typical indies songs: it features a simple melody, an electric piano, and is a love song. The melody might be a bit repetitive, but it works with what the lyrics mean (unfortunately, no human translation is available). I get the impression that the song is about holding hands. I’m not sure what else to say about it, so I’ll let you form your own opinions:

I like how the chorus makes parallels: first, she sings “this hand, this arm, this chest”, then sings later on, “this hand, this finger, this fingernail”. That’s Oku Hanako poetry for you.


Lyrics

Roumaji

Tooku hanareta machi ni sumu futari ga deaeta koto ga
Shiawasede shiawasena koto hajimete kokorokara omou

Afure dasu hitogomi no naka onaji youna kao ga takusan
Hitori gurai inakute mo hitori gurai wakaranai

Demo sono hitori wo matteru dare ka ga iru
Sono dare ka wo omotteru dare ka mo iru
Sou, watashi ga kon te wo tsunai deru kono hito wo taisetsu ni omou you ni wa

Sono te sono yubi sono tsume sono shimon ga watashi wo tsuyoku nigirishimete
Hyaku aru te kara sono te wo sagashidasu koto wa totemo kantanna kotodeshou

Tsunai deru futatsu no te wo sono poketto ni irete kureru
Sono shunkan ga watashi no himitsu no shiawasena toki

Juwaki wo itai kurai mimi ni atete
Sukoshi demo chikaku de sono koe wo kanjitai
Itsumo no kuchiguse, amaeta koe mo watashi ga zenbu hitorijime dekiru

Sono te sono ude sono mune sono subete ga watashi wo tsuyoku dakishime teru
Nee motto zutto soba ni itai no sono te ga watashi wo michibii teru

Sono te sono yubi sono tsume sono shimon ga watashi wo tsuyoku nigirishimete
Hyaku aru te kara sono te wo sagashidasu koto wa totemo kantanna kotodeshou

Sono te sono ude sono mune sono subete ga watashi wo tsuyoku dakishime teru
Nee motto zutto soba ni itai no sono te ga watashi wo michibii teru

Te wo tsunaide arukou

Japanese

遠く離れた街に住む 二人が出会えた事が
幸せで 幸せな事 はじめて心から思う

溢れ出す人ごみの中 同じような顔がたくさん
一人ぐらい居なくても 一人ぐらい分からない

でもその一人を待ってる誰かがいる
その誰かを思ってる誰かもいる
そう、私が今手をつないでるこの人を大切に思うように

その手 その指 その爪 その指紋が 私を強く握り締めて
百ある手からその手を探し出す事は とても簡単な事でしょう

繋いでる二つの手を そのポケットに入れてくれる
その瞬間が私の秘密の幸せな時

受話器を痛いくらい耳にあてて
少しでも近くで その声を感じたい
いつもの口癖、甘えた声も私が全部独り占め出来る

その手 その腕 その胸 そのすべてが 私を強く抱き締めてる
ねえ もっと ずっと そばにいたいの その手が私を導いてる

その手 その指 その爪 その指紋が 私を強く握り締めて
百ある手からその手を探し出す事は とても簡単な事でしょう

その手 その腕 その胸 そのすべてが 私を強く抱き締めてる
ねえ もっと ずっと そばにいたいの その手が私を導いてる

手を繋いで歩こう
