「東京少女(TOKYO GIRL)」

もうすぐこの時代が終わるらしい。時代は終わるが、私は終わらない。時代は変わっても、多分、私は変わらない。今日は私の昨日をcommand C + command Vしたみたいな、そんな日だ。何かを残す必要もないけれど、話し続ける。東京女子のつぶやきが終わる頃、時代は変わっている。
It seems like this era will come to an end soon. The era ends, but I don’t. Even if the era changes, I won’t probably won’t. Today I pressed command-C on yesterday and then command-V, it was that kind of day. There’s nothing I need to leave, but I’ll keep talking. When the mumblings of Tokyo girls end, that’s when the era has changed.
