Tsubasa no Sekkeizu

Blueprint for Wings

Sung by: V6

Version 1.10

Note: I have very little to say about this song. It's simply one of my favorite V6 songs of all time. It's so incredibly beautiful in a very nostalgic, heart-breaking kind of way. It's also one of two songs (along with Generation Gap) written for V6 by Japanese artist Fujii Fumiya. As if I needed another reason to love the man. Do a little dance, indeed, Fujii-san. Mmmm....


One day     aoi mokei hikouki
ano hi no kimi o noseteru

One day     A blue model airplane
It carries memories of you from that day


One night     hoshi to hoshi o tsunaide
tsubasa no sekkeizu kaita

One night     Connecting star to star
We drew a blueprint for wings


"hiroi nohara o sagashi ni ikou
yume o kaze ni nosete
tooku e tobashite miyou"

"Let's go out and find a big field
We'll leave our dreams to the wind
And see if we can fly far away"


puropera o oikakete     kimi to hashiritsuzuketa
onaji sora o mitsumete     kimi to daichi o ketta

Chasing after the propellors     I kept running with you
Gazing up at the same sky     we kicked off from the ground


One day     kowareta mokei hikouki
kimi wa tsubasa o hirotta

One day     A broken model airplane
You gathered wings


"tooi mirai e yakusoku shiyou
kitto mata aeru yo
saa ikou     sorezore no sora"

"Let's make a promise to the far off future
We'll definitely meet again
So let's go     into our own skies"


puropera o tometa toki     boku wa sukoshi waratta
shizumu yuuhi no naka de     boku wa hitori ni natta

When the propellors stopped     I laughed a little bit
In the sinking evening sun     I was left alone


"hiroi nohara o sagashi ni ikou
yume o kaze ni nosete
tooku e tobashite miyou"

"Let's go out and find a big field
We'll leave our dreams to the wind
And see if we can fly far away"


puropera o oikakete     boku wa hashiritsuzuketa
onaji sora o mitsumete     boku wa daichi o ketta

Chasing after the propellors     I kept running
Gazing up at the same sky     I kicked off from the ground

Romanized and translated into English very badly by Mina-P, with desperately needed help, as always, by Mako-chan. Any comments or corrections can be mailed to Mina-P at Minako@senshigakuen.com.
