Who Knows: In Search of Home

Fairport Convention、歌詞(Lyrics)『Who Knows Where The Time Goes?』日本語訳(Japanese translation)

The trees let go of their leaves in the autumn. There’s no use of crying over fallen leaves. The season of diminished light is followed by cold and bleak winter. This is how the nature works. Just as birth and death are the key metaphor of shifting season, things come and go throughout life. The sense and presence of home is no exception.


People come and go, too. You can get close to any of them but some will leave you behind for a reason or another. It’s sad but that’s how things go. You may be fixated to one place or another. Home you’ve finally found, however, might be gone sooner or later.  You will be bewildered when your world is shaken.


“Who Knows Where The Time Goes?” by a British folk rock band Fairport Convention is characterized by its touch of resignation to the shift and fate. There is no certainty. We have no idea where each moment take us. Are you prepared for this?

イギリスのフォークロックバンド、フェアポート・コンベンションの”Who Knows Where The Time Goes?”には、変化や運命に対するある種の諦観が漂います。確かなものなどない。一瞬一瞬が、自分をどこへ連れて行くのか誰も分からない。心の準備はできているかと問いかけているのです。

Fairport Convention – Who Knows Where The Time Goes?

夕暮れの空を渡って 鳥たちが家路を急ぐ
なぜって もう帰る時間だから
わたしは 火の傍で もう少しぼうっとしていよう

時間なんて わたしは気にしない
時がどこへ向かうか 知る人もいない

物寂しい 人けのない岸辺
でも そういうタイミングだっただけ

わたしは もう少しここにいるんだろう
時間なんて わたしは気にしない
時がどこへ向かうか 知る人もいない

冬には嵐が 春には鳥たちがやって来る
