STAY HERE, NOT ALONE

*Salute!* ( ゚∀゚)o彡゜め~りん!め~りん!

Btw, World Cup: JPN v. Cameroon 1-0 \o/ Woo!! – let’s hope they keep the lead!

Notes:
I’m using “they/them” as a singular genderless pronoun, as is the custom.
“Everyone carries a weight on their chest” I used the English equivalent phrase, it really says a “wound/pain” in one’s chest/heart.

自分の居場所を求め探し彷徨い
辿り着いたこの場所を誰にも渡しはしない

I was lost, searching for a place where I could belong;
Now that I’ve made it here, I won’t give it up to anyone.

I stay here.
I’m gate-keeper.
I for you.
We’re not alone

何処に居ればいいのか わからなくて独りで
膝を抱え泣いていた あの私はもう居ない
孤独を感じて逃げた 後ろ姿追いかけて
見つけて抱きしめてたなら 言葉なんていらない
長い髪なびかせて 頬に風を受けて
大地を踏みしめて 胸張ってここに居る

All alone, I didn’t know anywhere I could stay;
I hugged my knees and cried, but that me is no more.
Feeling lonely I ran away and chased after someone in the distance.
When I found and embraced them, there was no need for words.
I let my long hair flow loose and took the wind at my cheek.
I stepped down on the earth, I puffed out my chest and stood.

一緒に居て気付いた 私だけじゃなかった
誰もが胸に傷を抱え それを隠しきれずにいる
笑顔でいることが私の武器であるならば
うつむかず 目をそらさず 前だけを見つめていこう

I realized that we were in this together; I wasn’t the only one.
Everyone carries a weight on their chest and no one can hide it completely.
If standing here smiling is going to be my weapon,
Never looking down, never averting my eyes, I’ll just keep looking forward.

存在価値考えてたら きりがないの知っていたのに
あなたの言葉ひとつで 不思議ね不安が消えた

When I thought about the value of my own existence, I should have known it had no limit,
But with a single word of yours – it was strange – all my anxiety vanished.

長い髪なびかせて 頬に風を受けて
大地を踏みしめて あなたの帰り待っている

I let my long hair flow loose and take the wind at my cheek.
I step down on the earth and wait for your return.

あなたが私の事 認めてくれたこと
生きていく糧になったと 気付いてはいないでしょうね

I didn’t realize the fact you accepted me for who I am
Became my reason for living.

自分の居場所を求め探し彷徨い
辿り着いたこの場所を誰にも渡しはしない

I was lost, searching for a place where I could belong;
Now that I’ve made it here, I won’t give it up to anyone.

I stay here.
I’m gate-keeper.
I for you.
We’re not alone
