Rappelle-moi: In Search of Home

Zaz、歌詞(Paroles)『Rapell-moi』日本語訳(Traduction japonaise)

Zaz, a french singer-songwriter, sings about lost Home in her song, “Si jamais j’oublie”. And what is beautiful about her lyrics is that it says much about the idea that “home is something that is remembered”. Look at the fact that others play a part in the creating of your Home, and you’ll realize you don’t have to carry the world on your shoulders. Crafting and grasping the whole picture of yourself is not a lone job. Look around, and you’ll find a grand body of people you have come across.

ザズは、フランスのシンガーソングライターですが、『Si jamais j’oublie(もしもわたしが忘れてしまったら)』のなかで「Home」について歌っています。歌詞が美しいのは、『「Home」は記憶される』ということについて多くを語っているからです。しっくりくる自分を作るために、ほかの人も役割を果たすと考えると、もう世界の全てを背負いこまなくてもいいのです。自分を作り上げ理解する作業は、一人でできる作業ではありません。見回してみると、これまでに出会った様々な人々が見えてくるのではないでしょうか。

We all struggle to feel right and establish ourselves in this world while trying to stay true to ourselves. It’s a tough job. Much worse, we have no idea who we are at all as long as you try to see yourself without a mirror. You need others to fully embody your identity. You can attain a sense of self in relationship to others. All kinds of interactions help make up who you are. What you said, what you write, what you cried for, who you laughed with, and who you lend your hand to. All that you bring out leave something to others and sink in, more or less. We can only belong and be truly heard in relationship.


Rappelle-moi si jamais j’oublie et je me perds. What do you think people around you would remind you if you should forget and be lost?


Zaz – Si jamais j’oublie


閉じ込めて 鍵は捨てていいから
何でもいいから 思い出させてね

もしわたしが忘れてしまったら 過ごした夜を
ギターの弾き方を 泣き方を
教えてね わたしが何者で なんで生きていたのか

教えてね わたしが何者で なにをしようとしていたのか
