Japanese lyrics

おかえり やっと会えた ずいぶん長い旅だった
途中でそっと呼び掛けたけど前を見たまんまで応えなかった
どこへ行けた? 何を見つけた? 誰かのこと好きになった?
もっと笑って話してごらんよ ずいぶんと曇った顔してる

寄り道でもしてみたら景色がもっと鮮やかになる
今素直に受け止めよう この世界のざわめきを尊き日を

心と心をむかいあわせ 優しく輪郭をなぞった
知らずに放って置かれた傷がいくつか残っていたよ
真っ赤に腫れあがるその傷をさすって元どおりにするよ
ゆっくりゆっくり眠ればいい ボクが守ってあげる

ハローグッバイ いろんなことが何度も行ったり来たりで
幸せなこと 悲しくなること 一本の道の上にあったりする

もう少しだけ歩こうよ せっかくここまで来たんだから
誰もがこの道を通るから 陽だまりの場所 尋ねて 向かってみよう

心と心を重ねあわせ 耳を当てて聞きとるメッセージ
消えそうな小さな叫び声がずっと聞こえてくるよ
「どうしてどうして強くなれない?」涙が交じったその言葉
大事に拾って大きくして 空へ運んで行くよ それはボクにしか出来ない

どこにも置き去りにできない ましてや壊すための勇気なんてもっていない
真綿にくるんで この思い抱きかかえる

さよなら また旅へ出るんだね 後ろを振り向かずに行くんだ
まだ見ぬ素敵な景色がある 信じて進んでみよう
心と心をむかいあわせ そこに生まれるものがあるよ
それを人は愛と呼んでいる ボクにも見せておくれよ きっと見つけられるから
あなた あなたに出逢いたい

English translation

Welcome
You’re finally back
It has been a very long journey
I called out to you softly on the way but
As I saw your look and face, I wasn’t able to answer back
Where did you go?
What did you find?
Did you fall in love with someone?
I tried to share stories and laugh more
But I only came to be very gloomy

I tried pausing my journey
But the scenery only became more vivid
Now I will accept wholeheartedly
This world’s commotions and precious days

As hearts faced each other
An outline of kindness was traced
Unknowingly, several wounds were left untreated
From those arose bright red swelling
Rubbing them has no effect at all
I could only wish I could rest peacefully
I will protect you

Hello and goodbye
A lot of things come and go many times over
Happy things
And those that cause sadness
And there’s one above the tunnel

Let’s walk a bit farther
We’ve come this far anyway
Everyone goes by this route
Let’s ask for somewhere
A sunlight place
Let’s go and head there

As hearts piled on each other
Ears are lent to heed a message
A tiny shouting voice that seems to vanish
Is what I’m always listening for
“Why, oh why am I not getting stronger?”
Those words were mixed with tears
But I’ll shovel them up carefully
And fly towards the sky
And only I can do so

I won’t leave any place unchecked
I don’t have any more courage to destroy more
I wrap myself in silk wads
And hold on these emotions

Goodbye
You’re setting out again, right?
Now go, without looking back
Many more lovely unseen landscapes await
Believe and move forward
As hearts face each other
Something is born right there
It’s what people call love
I’ll find myself one too
I’ll surely find them
With you, with you whom I’ll meet
