歌詞

あなたが私にしたことは
忘れてあげない なんて言わない
あなたもあなたの存在も
忘れてあげるから
あなたが望むままに 今

摘み取られるのが花だと
知っているの 痛いくらい
忘れ去られた花が どんなに哀しいか
会えないだけで泣いた夜も
聞こえない声探した朝も
どこかで笑ってるあなたに
踏み潰されもせず
忘れ去られた花のように

力尽きたメール打って
返事期待するのをやめて
歩き出そうとした瞬間に 鳴り響く
もがくほど絡み付く糸を
解く術を身につけた蝶は
おもちゃを捨てた子供のように
大人に目覚めてく
あなたに出来ることを さぁ

あなたが私にしたことは
許してあげない なんて言わない
忘れた花には止まらない
舞い上がる蝶になる
あなたが望むままに 今

Translation

I won’t tell you to not forget
what you did to me
since I’ll forget you
and your very existence
Just do what you want.

I know all too well that it’s flowers
who get plucked in the end.
How sad is the flower that was forgotten?
At night, I cried from not being able to see you.
In the morning, I searched for inaudible voices.
You’re laughing somewhere
but I won’t be crushed by you
like some forgotten flower.

I used all my strength to type an email
and I give up on getting a reply.
The moment I started walking, I got a notification.
the butterfly has learned to untie
the threads that twine ‘round it the more it struggles.
Like a child casting away their toys
they awaken to adulthood.
Do what you can. Come on…

I won’t tell you to not forget
what you did to me.
I’ll become a butterfly dancing high in the sky
who won’t stop by a forgotten flower.
Just do what you want.
