Ninomiya Kazunari - 1992*4##111 lyrics + translation

Hazukashii kara kimi ni wa angou de
Okuru koto wo kimeta sou shiyou
Hinto wa sou da na
'suki da yo' to ka sonna kakkoi kotoba janai

Demo fushigi da na suki na hito ni mo
Kirai na hito ni mo onnaji dake tsuta wa aru
Kono kotoba wa sou ima na wo no tooru
Yuiitsu no mahou kamo shirenai

Tabun sou nanda kitto sou nanda
Atarimae ni sonzai suru mono nanda
Dakara boku wa sore wo tokubetsu ni shitanda
Hossori dareni mo barenai youni
Soshitara jibun dake no imi wo kangaedasu darou na

Mitsukaranakute hisshi ni natte
Sagasu kimi wa amari ni mo kawaii kute
Hinto wa sou da na
'Gomen ne' to ka to yoku issho ni iru kamo ne

Chicchai ko datte sono oya tte
Dare mo ga tsukatteiru mahou nandakara
Moshimo boku ni mo kodomo ga dekitara
Mayowazu saisho ni kore wo oshie yo

Tabun sou nanda kitto sou nanda
Eien nante sonzai shinai mono dakara
Ima wo zenryoku de aiserunda dakara
Ashita no asatte no somo saki ni wa
Ieru ima surunda hazukashigarazu sunao

Moshi tatoeba no hanashi sonna ga janai kedo
Boku wo jinsei saigo no kotoba wo waratte yukou e nanda

Tabun janakute zettai sou nanda
Hitori de koko made yattekita wakejanai kara
Ima wo omounda iron na hitotachi no kao ga
Egao ni kawaru toki ni wa
Sono tonari de saki ni wakatta imi ga itanda

Korekara dou natte yukunda
Sonna no wakannai kedo
Zenzen fuan janai da yo
Kimi no egao ga nani yori no kotae dakara
Kaidoku dekitanda datta naraba
Saigo ni mou hitotsu tsutae hitokoto
Sore wa...

(I love you...)

TRANSLATION

Because it’s embarrassing,
I decided to send you this message in code. Yes, that’s what I’ll do.
As for a hint…
It’s not anything fancy like “I love you”.

But it’s strange…
This word means the same when said to both those you love and those you hate.
It just might be
The one and only magic left in this world…

This is probably true. Surely it’s true.
It’s something that we take for granted.
That’s why I’ve decided to make it “special”,*
And secretly send you this message so that no one else finds out…
If I do that you’ll have to come up with your own meaning.

And when you have trouble finding it,
Seeing you search with all your might will be really cute.
Ok, I’ll give you a hint.
It’s often found alongside “I’m sorry”.

Even little kids, and their parents as well,
Everyone uses this magic word.
If someday I too have a child,
Without hesitating, this is the first thing I will teach them…

This is probably true. Surely it’s true.
Because eternity doesn’t exist,
That’s why I’m able to love with all my might right now.
Maybe tomorrow, the day after, or sometime after that…
I have a feeling I’ll be able to say it straightforwardly without being embarrassed…

If… and I’m speaking hypothetically.
It’s not something to make such a big deal about, but,
When my life ends,
I’ll smile and say “this”** as my parting words.

It’s not “probably”, but rather, “I’m certain”.
I didn’t make it this far in life all alone.
When thinking back on it, I realize.
Those many times when various people’s expressions turned to smiles.
You were right beside me, and you knew it first.

What will happen from now on?
Of course I have no idea,
But I’m not worried at all.
Because your smile is the best answer.
So, you’ve figured it out? Well then,
I’ve got one more thing I’d like to tell you, and that’s…***
