日本語

帰り道 泣きたかった
壊れそうでロックを聴いてた
何度も振り返るけど
追いかけてきてくれないんだね

“あたしを手放さない”
やっぱり うぬぼれ過ぎかな
一番になんてなれっこないのに
きみは履き違えた優しさで
傷付けたくない、とか言うんだ
違うよ 情けならいらない

あぁ こんなにも苦しいなんて
今になってわかったよ
あの子の痛みは必ず跳ね返ってくる
あぁ いっそこのまま戻らない
決めても すぐ 思い出す
だめだな ほらまた 気付けば
会いたくなってるから
ごめんねの電話をかけてしまうの

独りよがりな会話や
寝ないで! と繰り返す夜も
想うほど 虚しくなるよ
いなくなっても平気そうだね

こんな歌書いたら
きっとまた拗ねてしまうな
それともついに振られるかな
みんなに秘密にして会うのも
焼きもちやくのも もう疲れた
それでも 失うのは怖いんだ

あぁ こんなに好きになるなんて
今になって後悔する
あたしの知らない顔して
今日も家へ帰るんだね
あぁ ほんとは胸を叩いて
ひどいよって キミを責めたい
“あたしだけ見ててよ” それだけ
喉元 引っかかってる
泣いたら 困った顔するもんね

あぁ こんなにも苦しいなんて
今になってわかったよ
あの子の痛みは必ず跳ね返ってくる
あぁ 電話の向こうで笑った
その声に泣きそうになる
だめだな ほらまた 気付けば
愛しさが募るから
あと少し もう少し 側においてよ

Translation

I wanted to cry on the way home.
I felt like I was falling apart, so I listened to some rock.
I kept looking back
but you didn’t chase after me.

“You won’t let go of me.”
I was too pretentious, wasn’t I?
I could never be number one
yet you were kind enough to walk in my shoes
and told me you didn’t want to hurt me.
No! I don’t want your pity.

Ah, now I get it.
It’s so painful.
Their pain will bounce back to me.
Ah, I’d rather it not come back like this.
I made up my mind, but I remember straight away.
It’s hopeless. See, before I knew it
I wanted to see you
so I called you to apologise.

Smug conversations
and nights full of repeated calls of “Don’t fall asleep!”
felt just as empty as I thought they would.
Looks like you’ll be okay if I leave.

Once I write a song like this
I’ll start sulking again
or maybe I’ll finally be dumped.
I’m tired of keeping it secret from my friends
and burning with jealousy
and yet I’m scared of losing you.

Ah, to think I’d love you this much.
I regret it now.
You make a face I don’t recognise
and head home today again.
Ah, I really want to be confident
and tell you off, saying “that’s awful!”
“Only look at me.” That’s all.
The words are stuck in my throat.
After all, when I cry, you look worried.

Ah, now I get it.
It’s so painful.
Their pain will bounce back to me.
Ah, they laughed on the other end of the phone.
I almost cried when I heard their voice.
It’s hopeless. See, my love will grow stronger
before I know it
so stay by my side for just a little longer.
