Lyrics for Achilles Ken by DAOKO.

空が晴れて 風が吹いて
洗濯物がようく乾いてくれそうだわ
朝はパンです さあ 駆け足で
社会の歯車回す 守りたい生活が
息が上がって立ち止まって
小休憩ばかり逆に疲れちゃうわ
溢れないよう 飲んで注いで
お腹膨れて水に流すしか無いよね
身体は容れ物 不便な日常
わたしだけが特別に出来が悪いだけだったら教えてほしい
ずっと大人になりたくて
背伸びし続けたらアキレス腱が切れたわ

夕焼け とけてゆく
おひさま みていた
水面は凪いでいる
こころも ゆらゆら
そうだ コンビニ寄ってから帰ろうかな
あなたに笑ってほしいこと
今日もたくさんあったんだよ
sora ga harete kaze ga fuite
sentakumono ga youku kawaite kuresou da wa
asa wa pan desu saa kakeashi de
shakai no haguruma mawasu mamoritai seikatsu ga
iki ga agatte tachidomatte
shou kyuukei bakari gyaku ni tsukarechau wa
afurenai you nonde sosoide
onaka fukurete mizu ni nagasu shika nai yo ne
karada wa iremono fuben na nichijou
watashi dake ga tokubetsu ni deki ga warui dake dattara oshiete hoshii
zutto otona ni naritakute
senobi shitsuzuketara akiresu ken ga kireta wa

yuuyake tokete yuku
ohi-sama miteita
minamo wa naide iru
kokoro mo yurayura
sou da konbini yotte kara kaerou kana
anata ni waratte hoshii koto
kyou mo takusan attan da yo
The sky is clear. A breeze comes by.
Laundry on the line will be nice and dry.
Breakfast is toast. I've gotta run, not coast.
To protect little things in life, I'm a cog in the wheel.
Out of breath. Stop for a second.
Small breaks over and over. I'm tired.
Drink before you pour some more.
I need to quench my thirst before it's water under the bridge.
My body is a container. It makes me a complainer.
Is it just me, that gets in so much trouble? 
Always wanted to be a grown-up.
Tried to stand taller and my Achilles tendon snapped.

The sun sets orange.
I gaze at it melting.
The water calmed down.
My heart sways and sways.
Maybe, I'll drop by a convenience store before I go home.
I can't wait to tell you all about today.
I hope I get to make you laugh.
