Ginkou man ni natte ninen me ni
Ima made no seikatsu wo APPUGUREEDO shita
SHIRUKU no SUUTSU ni koukyuu RESUTORAN
Gakuseijidai no jimi na koibito ni mo
Toutou sayounara

Shuui no me wo hiku hade na hito to
Tsukiau you ni natte sara ni senobi wo shita
Konna furui mono hazukashii kara to
Oya ni moratta taisetsu na kuruma wo
Tamerai mo naku kaikaeta

Kuruma wa shizuka ni miteita
Hito ga sukoshizutsu kawatteyuku sugata
Yutakasa to wa BURANDO no kunshou janakute
Torihiki no dekinai hinkaku no koto da to
Itami to tomo ni manabu hi ga kuru to
Kuruma dake ga shitteita

Tsugi ni kuruma wo kaitotta kazoku
Kenka no taenai oya to osanai kyoudai
'Baka' ya 'urusai' oya no kuchiguse wo
Maneru kodomo ga hajimete kiita kotoba
'Rikon' tte dou iu imi na no?

Kuruma wa shizuka ni miteita
Kodomo ga giseisha ni natteyuku sugata
Oya no machigai wo ko ga seou sadame nado
Fujouri dakedo sore mo jinsei to
Kuruma dake ga shitteita

Chuuko no mise ni shibaraku naranda
Kuruma wo roufuufu ga aru hi katteitta
Saikin futari de yoku dekaketeiru
Shidai ni kaiwa ga hazumi joudan made mo
Ieru you ni natteita

Kuruma wa shizuka ni miteita
Mukuchi no fuufu ga egao ni naru sugata
Ayumiyorezu surechigau jiki mo atta kedo
Himitsu mo takusan to tsukutta keredo
Tagai no mikata de aritsuzuketa
Itsumo mikata de aritsuzuketa to
Futari dake ga shitteita

Translation

Two years after becoming a banker,
he decided to upgrade the lifestyle he has led until now
He dressed in a fine silk suit and dined at an expensive restaurant
and to his plain girlfriend from university,
he finally said goodbye

Now dating a person who catches many eyes
and belongs to a higher status, he has grown up even more
Embarrassed to own such an old thing -
a precious old car he was given by his parents -
he exchanged it for a new one without hesitation

All along, the car was watching quietly
upon a person’s form as he changes
That wealth or fortune is not shown by brand-name decorations,
but instead by irreplaceable dignity and character,
is a truth that he will learn through pain when the day comes
and only the car understood

The family who bought the car afterwards
had young brothers from a pair of parents who had ceaseless fights
Words such as “Idiot” and “shut up” that were spoken by the parents
were mimicked by the children, as new words that they heard
They wondered, “What does ‘divorce’ mean?”

All along, the car was watching quietly
upon the children’s forms as they became the victims
That children should suffer a fate of shouldering the mistakes of their parents
is irrational but part of life is a truth
that only the car understood

The car stayed at a second-hand shop for a while,
until one day it was bought by an old couple
Lately, the two of them often went out
Recently, their conversations have changed;
and they’ve become able to laugh & joke around once more

All along, the car was watching quietly
upon the form of the once distant old couple now being able to smile
There were times when they didn’t compromise, or missed each other’s points,
and over the years both of them have made lots of secrets, but
they continued life as each other’s ally
That they were each other’s ally
was a truth only the two of them understood



[* The title of the song is a play on words. Mokugekisha (目撃者) means "eyewitness," while the song's title Mokugekisha (目撃車) literally means "witness car" - to mean that the car is the eyewitness. The two words use two different kanji which are pronounced the same. Of course, the "witness car" is a reference to the song's content. Angela is being very sly & funny! ]
