Pizzicato Five – The Apartment lyrics

Translators: Ed Valdez, Taichi Azuma, Jose C. Cabesas, Ted Mills

Kazegusuri to
Rusuban denwa
Cat food to
Oki tegami
Sayonara mo iwanai no

Yubin-uke ni e-hagaki
Isshukanbun no shinbunshi
Sayonara mo iwanai no

Hachigatsu mo owari chikaku ni toreta
Mijikai yasumi kara kaette kita noni
Apaato no kagi ga akanai

Sentaku mono
Koi no owari to
Katakunatta france pan to
Sayonara wa iwanaide
Itsu made mo

Raincoat to
Hon to anata no tame no
Tsumaranai omiyage o
Trunk no kagi ga akanai

Hamigakiko to
Koi no owari to
Moraimono no hachi ue no hana
Sayonara mo iwanai no

Mezamashi-dokei wa kowareta mama
Sayonara wa iwanai de
Watashi no kokoro mo kowareta mama
Sayonara wa iwanaide
Sayonara wa iwanaide

cold medicine and
The answering machine
Cat food and
The letter you left
You left without saying goodbye

A postcard in the mailbox
A week's worth of papers
You left without saying goodbye

I came back from a short trip
I took near the end of August
But I can't open the apartment

Laundry to do
The end of love
And stale french bread
Please, don't say goodbye

A raincoat and
A book and some boring
Souvenirs for you are jammed
In this suitcase
I can't open the suitcase

We ran out of toothpaste
And we ran out love
This potted flower I received
You left without saying goodbye

The alarm clock is still broken
Please, don't say goodbye
My heart is still broken too
Please, don't say goodbye
Please, don't say goodbye
