From the recording Hotel Lobby
The opening track of Mari's new album Chaos and Stillness
Hotel Lobby (Mari Iijima)
While envisioning the tomorrow
that I had never seen yet
I kept buying brand new clothes
It was dreaming of a date with you . . .
A flower printed one piece dress
It still has a price tag on it
It’s a sad view from here
I don’t know where I went off course
But I’m still here alone
Where are you now?
Are you still living with her?
The questions that have no place to go
They merge with my sighs
Ah . . . Bring back the time!
One morning in March . . .
At the hotel lobby
My sweet heartbeats are eternal
It was only a few seconds
that he held my shoulder and yet
“I could just stay like this forever”
He whispered to me softly with a little wit
Tears flow into my eyes
each time I think of you
You are the only one
who has that effect on me
What makes me do that?
I don’t have any answer to that ...
