歌詞

上手な恋なんて出来ないと
すねてた私が惹かれた人

小さな強がりが重なって
気付けばあなたの不安を誘ってた

大好きでいたかったけど
あなたにはもう会えないよ
もっともっと
本当は上手く甘えたかった

不器用に差し出したあなたの手
照れた横顔が可愛かった

眠れない夜には一晩中
長電話にも付き合ってくれたよね

いつだって優しかった
いつだって愛してくれた
もっともっと
あなたと泣いて笑いたかった

今はまだ無理だけどいつの日にか
新しい幸せに歩き出すよ

悪いのは私でした
責めるしか選べなかった
きっときっと
認めてしまうのが怖かった

どうかどうか私の事を忘れないでね
そっと、さよなら

Translation

I sulked, thinking I couldn’t be a good lover
while I was attracted to someone.

Small shows of courage overlapped
and before I knew it, I aroused your unease.

I wanted to love you
but I can’t see you again.
More and more…
To be honest, I wanted you to fawn over me.

You offered your hand so awkwardly.
From the side, your shy expression was so cute.

During sleepless nights,
you’d even stay with me on the phone all night long.

You were always so kind.
You always loved me.
More, more…
I wanted to cry and laugh with you even more.

It’s still impossible, but someday
I want to start walking with new happiness.

I was at fault.
All I chose to do was blame.
Surely, surely
I was afraid of noticing it.

Please, please, don’t forget me.
Gently, goodbye.

    1. You’re welcome! (^_^) I think this song is about a shy person who falls in love with someone. They want to be with them forever, but have broken up with their beloved (they may have had trust issues or kept blaming their lover for things). They want to meet someone new or be happy again someday, and hope their former lover remembers them fondly.
