歌詞

〇と✕で歌を歌った 話したくて切手貼って送った
まるで罰を数えるように でもさ、それじゃ届くはずないさ
ナンセンス ナンセンス

生きてくこと歌を歌った 文字にしたら馬鹿馬鹿しくなちゃって
言葉の淵 沈めた命 救えないの全部僕のせいさ
ナンセンス ナンセンス

でもさ、でもさ

それでいいと思えたんだ ああ 僕が生きてきた証を
残せたら良いと思ったんだ こんな、拙くて伝んなくっても

悲しくないと思ったんだ 今 僕が救われた証を
世界に残せろのなら もし、明日僕が霞になってもいっか

いいかい?

それでいいと思えたんだ なのに なんでこんなにも苦しい
「強がらなくてもいい」とちやんと君が僕に伝えたから?

それで良いと思えたんだ ああ 君と苦しんだ証を
また歌に残せるなら こんな不甲斐なくって脆くたっても

いいかい

いいかい

いつか聴いてくれる君や、代わりに歌うあなたの為の
歌を、歌えたらいいな。たとえ世界が望まなくっても。
あなたのため、歌えたなら意味があるかな。

ナンセンス ナンセンス

君といつか歌えるかなあ。ナンセンス ナンセンス

Translation

I sang with noughts and crosses. I wanted to talk so I stuck a stamp on and sent it.
It’s like I’m counting out punishments, and yet that won’t make it arrive.
Nonsense. Nonsense.

I sang about life. I put it into words and it seemed so silly.
Their life was submerged in an abyss of words. I couldn’t save them. It was all my fault.
Nonsense, nonsense.

But, but…

That seemed okay. Ah, if only I could leave behind
proof that I lived. I wasn’t good enough, so I didn’t say it.

But I didn’t think it was sad. Now, if I could leave behind
proof that I was saved, would that make it okay if I vanished like mist tomorrow?

Alright?

That seemed okay, and yet why do I hurt so much?
“You don’t need to act tough.” Is it because you said those words so clearly to me?

That seemed okay. Ah, if I can leave behind in song
proof that I suffered with you, then even if I’m cowardly and brittle

it’s okay, right?

Alright?

If only I could sing a song for you, who will someday listen to me,
and you, the substitute singer. Even if it’s not what the world wants.
I wonder if a song for you would have significance.

Nonsense. Nonsense.

I wonder if I can sing with you someday. Nonsense. Nonsense.
