Song: Monday Morning
Artist: Maaya Sakamoto | Yoko Kanno
Album: Dive
Year: 1998

A Little Background:
Maaya Sakamoto is a popular Japanese singer-songwriter, actress, and voice actress. She was Hitomi in Escaflowne, Kiyomi in

Death Note, and Reika in RahXephone. She's got quite a few albums under her belt and has worked closely with Yoko Kanno on a

number of them.

She's awesome, definitely one of my favourite Japanese artists. She sings in Japanese (like in this song), and in English

(check out "Gravity"), and I felt like sharing a sample of her awesomeness with the youtube world. Enjoy :)

Lyrics (Originally by Yaho lwasato):
konna ni jiyuu ni natte
watashitachi nani o suru no darou
ishuukan zutto furi tsuzuiteita
ame wa yanda no ni After acquiring so much freedom I wonder what we're going to do The rain that continued to fall for a week is now gone

hikidashi no totte ga kowarete iru yo
beddo (bed) ga kara da o shibari tsuketeru The handle on the drawer is broken The bed is grasping my body

mado kara sasu hizashi wa atarashii hajimari sa
chigau yo tada no getsuyou no asa
itsumo no kurikaeshi The sunlight shining through the window is a new beginning No it's not, it's just Monday morning It's just a repeat of the same old thing

rasen kaidan nobotte yuku you ni
shinka suru to iuu*
yube tsukata beeniru no kasa wa
nama nurui nioi As though it climbs a spiraling staircase It is said to evolve The plastic umbrella that was used last night Has a lukewarm stench to it

watashi wa sora o yuku touri ni naru no?
jitei ni uzumoreta ishi ni naru no? Am I to become a bird that flies through the sky? Am I to become a stone buried in the ground?

kaaten noshino hizashi wa
yoake no hikari dakara
akarui mirai no hazu da yo
watashitachi ga matteta The sunlight through the curtain Is light of dawn It must be the bright future That we were waiting for

mado kara sasu hizashi wa atarashii hajimari sa
chigau yo tada no getsuyoubi
onaji koto no kurikaeshi The sunlight shining through the window is a new beginning No it's not, it's just Monday morning It's just a repeat of the same old thing

kyo nanika ga hajimaru yoake no hikari dakara
akarui mirai no hazu da yo
watashitachi ga matteta Something will start today because it's the light of dawn It must be the bright future That we were waiting for

mado kara sasu hizashi wa... The sunlight that shines through the window is...
