日本語

よく夢を見るんだ

僕は王様で
幼いまま幸せな国の
中で守られてる

そう
ずっと穏やかで
煩い人も魔法も
英雄も怖い獣もいなくて
ただ退屈な日々

大人たちは口々に言う
「君は知らなくて良いことだから」

いつかそんな大人も
いなくなっていた

それでも自由はなくて

世界が美しい事なんて
生まれた時から知ってたの
君が美しい事なんて
出会う前から解ってたの

でも僕には遠くて
何一つ手に入らなくて

部屋の隅で泣いてたら
また朝が来るの

夢から覚めると
少し大人になってた

立ち上がる準備はできていた
仲間も集まった

「祭りの最後の夜にはね、
大きな花火を打ち上げるよ」

闇夜にまぎれて路地を素早く抜ける
お城まではあと少し

何かを変えてみたくて
この剣を手に取った
少し先を眺めたくて
歴史の上に飛び乗った

切り伏せた命を持って
階段を駆け上がってく

英雄も魔法もないけど
そこまで迎えに行くから

この国は僕達を少し未来へと歩ませる
大人へと昇ってゆく
ネヴァーランド

君を見つけたよ

世界も君の美しさも
全部目の前にあった
君は言葉をなくして
ただ泣きながら笑った

僕は君の手を取って
夜をまた駆け出してく

祭りはまだ終わらない

そして
もう二度と見ない夢を
幸せの国で

Translation

I often dream.

I am a young king
and in my happy kingdom
I am protected.

Yes.
Things are always calm.
There’s no troublesome people or magic
or heroes or scary beasts.
Every day is boring.

The adults all say the same thing:
“You don’t need to know.”

Someday, all of those adults
disappeared.

Still, I wasn’t free.

The world is beautiful.
I knew that from birth.
You are beautiful.
I knew that since before we met.

Yet it was all too far from me.
I couldn’t get my hands on anything.

After crying in a corner of my room
another dawn will arrive.

When I woke up
I grew a little more mature.

I’m ready to get back up.
I’ve gathered my companions.

“During the final night of the festival
I’ll launch some massive fireworks!”

I swiftly slip through the alleyway, disappearing into the night.
Just a little longer to the castle…

I took this sword in hand
wanting to change something.
I leaped atop history
wanting to see a little further ahead.

With slain lives in hand
I dashed up the stairwell.

I have no heroes or magic
but I’ll go that far to reach you.

This land pressed us towards the future a little
and we become adults
in Neverland.

I found you.

The world’s beauty and your beauty
were right there before my eyes.
You were lost for words
and you just smiled while crying.

I took your hand
and raced off into the night again.

The festival still isn’t over.

And so,
I have a dream I won’t have again
in this land of happiness.
