Honto no Shiawase (True Happiness)

Caldina Image Song
Translation: johnj@umr.edu

kawaikute hakanagena ano ko ni
dare datte monkunashi mikata wo suru
nanda k a tokidoki kanashikunaru kedo
maketara akan

You're so sweet to those fickle girls
Without asking who it is, you become a friend
Somehow, sometimes, it makes me sad, but
I won't give in to it

hade suki de kimagurena atashi w a
shojiki ni ikiteiru dake ya noni ne
seken wo kogarashi kokoro ni tsumetai
naitara akan

With showy affection, I capriciously
Have lived, in spite of honesty, eh?
The cold winds of society chill my heart
But I won't cry

iya na onna yato dare ka ni yobarete mo
ima wa anta dake soba ni itekuretara
iya na onna demo atashi wa kamahen yo
honto shiawase na kimochi ni nareru kara

As an evil woman, even if I call out to someone else,
Now I only wa nt you close to me
I'm an evil woman, but I don't care!
Truly, happy feelings can come from this

mitekure de kimetsukeru mawari wo
shitatakana hohoemi de hajiki tobashi
tada atashirashiku ai wo tsuranuku no
nigetara akan

As I watch, my assumed surroundings
Are forgotten for the first time in your strong smile
Only someone like me, while going through love,
Cannot run away

tsuyoi onna yato dare ka ni yobarete mo
sotto sono ude de dakishimerareta nara
tsuyoi onna ni mo yowai toko ga aru yo
anta hitori dake wakatteireba ii

As a strong woman, even if I call out to someone else,
I want to be in your arms
To a strong woman, this feels like weakness!
It would be all right if I understood why you're alone

iya na onna yato dare ka ni yobarete mo
ima wa anta dake soba ni itekuretara
iya na onna demo atashi wa kamahen yo
honto shiawase na kimochi ni nareru kara

As an evil woman, even if I call out to someone else,
Now I only want you close to me
I'm an evil woman, but I don't care!
Truly, happy feelings can come from this
