歌詞

下手な笑顔に笑い返すいつも隣で
君だけを想いながら
悲しみの中を彷徨う 何も語らず
不器用な足で

心が通っていた いつかを 取り戻せる日が来るまで
何度夜を越えても離れない
大きな溜息をのみこむ 横顔が どこか儚くて
遠くを見つめていた

堪えた涙 全て吐きだせるように願う
手の温もりに込めて
ずっと繋いでいるから

擦った目が じんわり赤く
染まった瞬間 塞がれた心に
寄り添うよう伸ばした手が 頼りなくて
虚しく降ろした

揺らめく陽炎の向こうの 君が消えてしまいそうで
締め付けられた胸が 痛くて
必要な言葉を一つもかけられずに 過ぎる時の中で
春を待っている

息を切らして掴んだ 扉が重くて
座り込んで見上げた空へ 叫んだ
つられるように 泣いてほしくて
背を向けたままで

堪えた涙 全て吐きだせるように願う

流れる星に閉じた瞳が君の強さ
叶えたい願いがある
それだけで歩けるから

Translation

I smile awkwardly and you smile back, always by my side.
All the while, I only have feelings for you.
I roam within sadness, saying nothing,
Upon clumsy feet.

Until I can take back the past, in which we understood each other,
No matter how many nights we pass through, I won’t let go.
You took deep sigh. Your face, seen from the side, seemed somewhat empty.
You were looking into the distance.

I endured my tears, praying I could say everything.
I sent my prayers through the warmth of our hands,
Since we will always be connected.

I rubbed my eyes and they gradually turned red.
The moment that happened, your hand
which had been drawing closer to my sealed heart,
Fell in vain.

You seem to vanish beyond a swaying heat haze.
My constricted chest hurts.
I pass the time unable to say a single necessary word,
Waiting for spring.

Out of breath, I laid my hands on the door. It was heavy.
I sat down and screamed at the sky.
I wanted you to cry, to lure me in
as you kept your back faced to me.

I endured my tears, praying I could say everything.

Eyes, sealed away in the shooting stars, are your strength.
There’s a wish I want to come true.
I can walk, through just that.
