歌詞

歩いて、触って、眠って、目覚めて
ありふれた明日は来ない
この身が終わると気付いた時から
叫び始めた 命

もしも この両足が自由なら
部屋の外へ踏み出していこう
もしも この両腕が自由なら
誰かに触れてみたい

神がいるのならば なんて無力な
すがりつく 鼓動の糸

苦しい 苦しい それでも生きたい
安らかに眠れなくていい
この身が終わると気付いたその日に
私は生まれ落ちた

苦しい 苦しい それでも生きたい
安らかに眠れなくていい
無数の儚い「もしも」を切り裂く
心電図の音が

生まれて、目覚めて、眠って、それから
その先には何があるの
無数の儚い「もしも」を夢見た
長い夜が明けていく

息を殺して待った
真っ赤な朝あしたを待った
真っ赤な朝あしたを待

Translation

I walk, I touch, I sleep, I wake.
An ordinary tomorrow won’t arrive.
I began screaming from the moment I realised
my life would come to an end.

If these legs of mine were free
I want to step outside my room.
If these hands of mine were free
I want to touch someone else.

If God exists, they’re so weak.
I cling to the thread of my heartbeat.

It hurts. It hurts. Still, I want to live.
It doesn’t matter if my sleep is troubled.
I was born on the day I realised
my life would come to an end.

It hurts. It hurts. Still, I want to live.
It doesn’t matter if my sleep is troubled.
The sounds of the ECG cut apart
countless fleeting ‘what-ifs.’

I’m born, I wake up, I sleep, and after that
what lies there?
I dreamed of countless fleeting ‘what-ifs’
and the long night ends.

I held my breath and waited.
I waited for a bright red dawn
I waited for a bright re—
