際限なく続いて行く 紺碧な一つの波に乗って
想像は膨らんで行く 環境の変化を憎んでもはかない
I feel as if I’m forever upon a wave of the deepest blue
And as my imagination soars, the hated changes around me become fleeting.
You who have walked coast to coast, in your heart you can probably do anything.
But I cannot even see you when I want to.
何にもいらない あなたに触れたい
I don’t need anything. I just want to feel you.
This wind that passes me by in this town pierces my heart.
思い出す度 心配してみたり
涙が一粒 だけどあなたには届かない
Each time I remember, I start to worry
And shed a tear, but I still don’t reach you.
Maybe it’s better to stay vague.
Then, I’ll begin to understand why I do the things I do.
But the next time that I see you, I will surely be stronger.
何にもいらない あなたに触れたい
I don’t need anything. I just want to feel you.
A lost song resounds through my heart.

どうしても遠い だけどあなたじゃなきゃ意味ない
I couldn’t swim well in my future then.*
You are too far from me but it has to be you.
始まりの場所 ぬくもりの声
If I listen closely, I can hear
your warm voice again at the place we first met.
思っていたより 甘くはないみたい
いっそ今ごと とっぱらって来て欲しい
It looks like it’s not as sugar-coated as I’d thought.
Now I just want to clear it all away.
こんなに苦しい だけどあなたじゃなきゃ
It’s like the voice of a little bird that cannot sing in the sky.
Even though I feel such pain inside, you’re the only one I can love.
飛んで行きたい 今すぐ会いたい
I want to fly away and see you right now.
I want to hear you say “I love you” with my own ears.
信じていたい 守っていきたい
I want to believe, I want to follow you,
I want to be close to you.

* This is the literal translation, but I think the meaning would be something like: At the time, my future seemed very difficult/complicated.
