Great Song

I heard this song last week and loved it immediately.  I thought it was a new band so I told my friend about it and he said, “Although this song is fairly new, the band is 5 years old….”

この曲は先週初めて聴いた。聴いた瞬間すぐに気に入った。新しいバンドだと思って友人に教えたら『この曲はまあまあ新しいけどバンドはもう5年経つよ。。。』

Anyways, the name of the song is “I Will Wait” and it’s by Mumford & Sons, and this kind of music is called folk rock music.  What do you think this song is about?  By the way, it’s not a love song.

まっ、曲名は『I Will Wait, 僕は待つよ』、バンド名は Mumford & Sons、そしてこういう音楽はフォークロックというジャンルです。この曲の意味は何だと思いますか?ところで、ラブソングではない。

Lyrics

And I came home
Like a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of dust
Which we’ve known
Will blow away with this new sun

And I’ll kneel down
Wait for now
And I’ll kneel down
Know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So break my step
And relent
You forgave and I won’t forget
Know what we’ve seen
And him with less
Now in some way
Shake the excess

But I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So I’ll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So tame my flesh
And fix my eyes
That tethered mind free from the lies

But I’ll kneel down
Wait for now
I’ll kneel down
Know my ground

Raise my hands
Paint my spirit gold
And bow my head
Keep my heart slow

Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

    Dejavu…Iknow the story like this before from my friend(laugh)

    This song mean that father to his son.

    Wrong?

  2. love painting より:

    I think

    I’ll wait for you means I’ll wait for myself who are
    reborn and have made up my mind to be what I am.

    This song inspires people to do things what we really want
    (?)

  3. love painting より:

    mistake: who is reborn

  4. Folsom より:

    Hello,
    I don’t have inspiration about this lyrics.
    Iwill give up….

    I think this lyrics is very 観念的?

    Folsomさん:

    訂正: Deja vu….This sounds like someone I know. (laugh) This song is about a father to his son.

    Nothing is coming to mind about these lyrics. I think these lyrics are very conceptual?

    ….

    You are VERY VERY close!!!! Yes, it is about a father and son, but think more metaphorically about what “son” and “father” means. GREAT GREAT INTERPRETATION!!!! :-)

    love paintingさん:

    訂正: I think “I will wait for you” means waiting for yourself, who was reborn and have made up your mind to be who you are. This song inspires people to do what they really want.

    ….

    Very nice interpretation! Yes, this guy is waiting, and yes, he has made up his mind and yes, this song can be inspiring. :-)

  7. Folsom より:

    と言うことは…、
    Father=myself who is in now.
    Son=myself who is in future.

    Are those wrong?

  8. Batman より:

    Folsomさん:

    Corrections:

    Father = Who I am now
    Son = My future self

    Is this wrong?

    ……

    Think about a different “Father,” also think about the following words from the song: kneel, forgive, flesh, raise my hands, bow my head….

    You are SO SO CLOSE….Please think just a little bit more…. You’ll suddenly understand the lyrics….
    とってもとっても近い!もうちょっと考えてね。。。すぐに歌詞理解出来る。:-)

  9. Folsom より:

    Father=papa≪GOD

    GOD and me?

    I will waite for you,this meaning I waite forGOD.

    Bytheway,
    of course ,I want to say this correctly,but I want to say this courteously. How do you say「失礼のない話し方がしたい」「丁寧な話し方がしたい」in english.

  10. Batman より:

    Folsomさん:

    Corrections:

    God and me? “I will wait for you.” This means that I am waiting for God. By the way, of course I want to say this correctly, but what I want to say is, “I want to say this politely.”

    ….

    CORRECT!! Yes, this guy is waiting for God, or a sign from God that he exists. He is struggling in his belief of God–Is there a God? If so, why is their so much suffering in the world?

    大正解!!そう、この男は神様を待っている又は神様からの合図を待っている。彼は神様に対する信念に迷い苦労している。本当に神様っている?居たらなぜ世界にこんなに苦難がある?

    VERY GOOD JOB!!!!!! :-) :-)
