Japanese Rōmaji English translation English lyrics

大人たちの はんぶんも 生きては いないけれど
思い出の数ならば リュックにいっぱいさ
お気に入りのベースボールキャップ かかとつぶれたスニーカー
ポケットのおくにあるよ 擦りへったギターピック
涙がちぎるれるくらい 悲しいこともあったけど
いつでもきみが ぼくのそばにいてくれた
ともだちのままいると ふたりずっと思ってた
気づかないまま たぶん きみを愛してた

笑いあったり遊んだり 傷つきながら歩く
近道もまわり道も 迷いながらおぼえた
信じられる人だけ いるわけないとしても
信じハートだけは 捨てられないと知った
ありのままの きみだけが ぼくを強くしてくれた
いつでもきみが ぼくを強くしてくれた

やさしい風が吹くように 草をなでていくように
いつでもきみが 笑顔みせて歩いてた
そう 網だと笑顔 かわるがわるに
見せあったふたりは・・・・・・ (I miss you)

otonatachi no hanbun mo ikitewa inai keredo
omoide no kazu naraba ryukku ni ippai sa
o ki ni iri no besubooru kyappu kakato tsubureta suniikaa
poketto no oku ni aru yo surihetta gitaa pikku
namida ga chigireru kurai kanashii koto mo atta kedo
itsudemo kimi ga boku no soba ni itekureta
tomodachi no mama iru to futari zutto omotteta
kizukanai mama tabun kimi o ai shiteta

warai attari asondari kizu tsukinagara aruku
chikamichi mo mawari michi mo mayoinagara oboeta
shinjirareru hito dake iru wake nai to shitemo
shinjiru haato dake wa suterarenai to shitta

itsudemo kimi ga boku o tsuyoku shitekureta
yasashii kaze ga fuku yoo ni kusa o nadeteiku yoo ni
itsudemo kimi wa egao misete aruiteta

soo namida to egao kawarugawaru ni

tooku ni hanarete...

I haven’t lived even half as long as adults have,
but I do have plenty of memories in my backpack
My favorite baseball cap, my sneakers with worn-out heels
Deep in my pocket is my worn-down guitar pick
There were some things sad enough to make tears come out,
but you were always by my side
I thought of the two of us as just friends the whole time
I probably loved you without ever realizing it

We walked while we laughed, played, and got hurt
I realized it as we took shortcuts and went in circles:
that even if you can’t believe in everyone
you can’t cast aside a heart you do believe in
You made me stronger just being who you are
Like a gentle wind blowing and swaying the grass
you always walked with a smile

Yes, the two who shared smiles and tears one after the other... (I miss you)
are now far apart...

Grown-ups have done so much more stuff than me
There's many things that I still want to see
Now I take my backpack to the world
and fill it with memories

My favorite baseball cap rests on my head
My worn out sneakers, faded white and red
My own guitar pick, shiny and clear
Safe in my pocket, right here

Though sometimes I got sad and almost cried
You were right there with me, by my side
I knew we were friends to the core
But maybe it was something more

Together, we walked that road for so long
We laughed, we played, we got hurt, we grew strong
When taking short-cuts, and getting lost
I learned what I’d known all along

That even if you can’t put faith in those
Who you meet, and lose, and love, and hug
Overall, you just can't give up
Believing in your friends
And just by being there, you've woken me
Just by being who you’d always be
Now I see, you helped me to know
The stronger, happier me
Like a gentle breeze, through the grass and the pine trees
You always wore a smile

Now we, who shared our Smiles and Tears...
...I miss you...
We two are now far apart...
