This track originally appeared in the CielArc album ‘Primary Report.’

While translating this, I was pondering whether there’s one speaker or more than one speaker. A couple of sections refer specifically to ‘you,’ so I assume the main speaker has feelings for someone else, but there are also sections in which someone seems to be cheering up someone else.


歌詞

どこまでも続いて
果てしのない道だ
先が見えないまま
不安になるけど

迷い手放す時も
巻き戻せない日々も
いつかは報われる時がくるよ

君が選んでいく答えがきっと
輝くように祈ってる
何度も挫けて立てないなら
手を伸ばしてもっとほら

言い出せないままで
閉じ込めた言葉も
誰かの為ならと
押し殺してたの?

正しいことだけでは
噛み合わない日常
本当は誰よりも信じたいのに

きっと今日も1人で

ありのままの君で
今もずっと笑ってくれたなら
それでいい

君が選んでいく答えがきっと
輝くように祈ってる
何度も挫けて立てないなら
この手を今ぎゅっと

離さないよずっと2人いれば
どんなことだって越えられる
信じる強さを分け合いたい
1人じゃないからもう

Translation

The path continued on
Forever, without end.
Still, I felt a little uneasy
Since I couldn’t see the end.

Though there are times when I doubt and let go,
Though there are days I cannot repeat…
Someday, I will have my reward.

I pray that the answer you’ll choose
Will shine, for sure.
If you’ve lost spirit and can’t get back up
Then just reach out even further! Come on!

You sealed away those words
Which you couldn’t spit out.
Did you crush them
Thinking it was for someone else’s sake?

Daily life won’t mesh together
With just things that are correct.
But to be honest, I want to believe more than anyone else.

I’ll be alone today, once more…

If you could continue
To smile at me forever, just the way you are,
Then I’d be happy.

I pray that the answer you’ll choose
Will shine, for sure.
If you’ve lost spirit and can’t get back up
Then just take my hand!

Don’t let go! If we’re always together
Then we can overcome anything!
I want to share the strength of belief with you.
You’re not alone, so come on…
