"Eyes, Smoke, Magic" lyrics

thanks to tokyoxjapanxfan for kanji!!!

Lol, I don't get why this song is titled eyes, smoke, magic. Any ideas, anyone???

Eyes, Smoke, Magic

Quote:
Papa, holding his popcorn in one hand
Is with his buddy, the TV remote, again today
Seeing him, Mama, as usual
Shows a melancholy face, a wrinkle between her brows

Watching them, I pretend not to notice

Yes, my best friends are
Diamonds and roses
Is there anything more valuable?
Mama didn't teach me about that

Papa is a little different today
Holding nachos in one hand, he watches TV

Again, Mama shows a sullen face

Yes, so again, I'll remain silent today
Say 「Eyes, Smoke, Magic」

Watching them, I pretend not to notice

Again, Mama shows a sullen face
ROOMAJI

Spoiler:
Papa wa kyou mo poppukoon katate ni
Terebi no rimokon to nakayoku shiteru wa
Mama wa sore wo mite itsumo no choushi de
Yuuutsu sou na kao de miken ni shiwa wo yoseru

Atashi wa sore wo mite minai furi

Sou atashi no besuto furendo wa
Daiyamondo to roozu tachi
Sore ijou ni kachi ga aru mono tte nani?
Mama wa oshiete kurenai

Papa wa kyou wa chotto atarashiku
Nachosu wo katate ni terebi wo miteiru wa

Mama wa sarani fukigen na kao

Sou dakara kyou mo hissori iku wa
Say 'Eyes, Smoke, Magic'

Atashi wa sore wo mite minai furi

Mama wa sarani fukigen na kao


KANJI

Spoiler:
パパは今日もポップコーン片手に
テレビのリモコンと仲良くしてるわ
ママはそれを見ていつもの調子で
憂鬱そうな顔で眉間にシワを寄せる

あたしはソレを見て見ないふり

そうあたしのベストフレンドは
ダイヤモンドとローズ達
それ以上に価値があるモノって何?
ママは教えてくれない

パパは今日はちょっと新しく
ナチョスを片手にテレビを見ているわ

ママは更に不機嫌な顔

そう だから今日も ひっそりいくわ
Say 「Eyes, Smoke, Magic」

あたしはソレを見て見ないふり

ママは更に不機嫌な顔

The lyrics give me the image of a girl who wants to live a life that's completely different from her dull parents. Maybe she wants to escape into showbusiness: the world of "eyes, smoke and magic"?

The lyrics are kind of humorous. I love how she's like "And today, for a change, he's eating nachos instead of popcorn"

My version for those interested:
Spoiler:
Eyes, Smoke, Magic

Popcorn in hand, papa is hitting it off
With his friend the TV remote today too
Mama looks on with furrowed brows
And a depressed look on her face as always

I watch them but pretend not to

Yes, diamond and roses
Are my best friends
What has more value than those two?
Mama doesn’t tell me

Today papa is watching TV
With nachos in hand for a change

Mama’s face looks even more sullen

Yes, that’s why I’ll go silently today too
Say “Eyes, Smoke, Magic”

I watch them but pretend not to

Mama’s face looks even more sullen

To me this sounds like she sees reality but wants to pretend and see something else "eyes, smoke, magic"...

Not sure why she is refering to her parents, but yeah... It's strange indeed.

Well, basically Mamma and Papa's marriage fell apart. So she doesn't like to acknowledge that so she pretends it didn't happen. What she saw with her eyes and did not like, she pretended not to see or notice, imagined it was something else, like smoke, and magic, gone.

Seems like its a song about ignoring known problems. I think the reference to diamonds and roses symbolizes her unwillingness to fall into the same slump, sorta like, "Who needs love, when there's diamonds and roses?"

I was looking forward reading the translations of E,S,M and the next LOVE. I really love these songs. ♥ Thank you both for translating! I really appreciate it!

Maybe the "Eyes, Smoke, Magic" is some kind of a magic spell? Or not really, how could I say it... The song is from a child's point of view whose family is unhappy. She's repeating the words to think of something else, happier things.
