Translation

 

Ah, if I were a flower I’d end up blooming,

you don’t know where will go

the smoke I’m inhaling right now.

 

Hands holding me,

there are so many of them I don’t even need to choose.

My normal temperature is equivalent to your small fever,

the feelings of me falling into indigo colour…

 

I bet you would like to know them,

I want to be happy, you know?

 

Ah, telecaster stripe

in the tide descending on me.

1-2-3

Falling in love with you

Telecaster Stripe

we don’t need that kind of song.

Aa telecaster stripe

Confess my love, I wanna fly

Aa Darling stay away from me

Telecaster Stripe

we don’t need that kind of song.

 

The farce that I need you like a drug,

even the simple fact that I love you,

the me who can’t say that to you…

 

turn her down and go away,

this is a farewell.

 

Aa Telecaster Stripe

My body is saying “Get real”.

1-2-3

Falling in love with you

Telecaster Stripe

We don’t need that kind of song.

Aa Telecaster stripe

I ended up blooming, I’m gonna cry

Ah Darling stay away from me

Telecaster Stripe

We don’t need that kind of song.

 

Ah, Telecaster Stripe

I’m letting you swim, You are just blind

I’m gonna eat at 35,5°

Telecaster Stripe

you who run like the wind.

 

In a single thought

 

Ah, telecaster stripe

in the tide descending on me.

1-2-3

Falling in love with you

Telecaster Stripe

we don’t need that kind of song.

Aa telecaster stripe

Confess my love, I wanna fly

Aa Darling stay away from me

Telecaster Stripe

we don’t need that kind of song.

 

Telecaster Stripe

Telecaster Stripe

 

Notes and Other

Words in Italic are in English in the original lyrics.

Some of you may know the “Telecaster Stripe” as “Skunk stripe”. It refers to a stripe on the back of the handle of the guitar which is always in a different colour from the rest of the guitar. When it first was introduced, it was thought it made a big difference to the sound of the instrument but it kinda revealed to be pointless, even so many artists keep using guitars with such a thing: it basically has become a “feeling” thing.

I think the meaning that love itself is similar to the skunk stripe question: in the end it’s just a matter of tastes.
