Abe Mao - Motto

Tsukaremashita. Konoba ni tsukaremashita. Anata no kotoba ni
Tsukaremashita. Uso tsuku no ni mou muriyari warai takunai'n da yo

Jibun wo shiranpuri suru no wa raku da keredo chigau daro?

Gomakasu koto ni narete shimai takunai kara
Boku wa itsumademo mogaki utai tsudzuketeru
Muri shite ganbattatte ii koto nanihitotsu nai kara

Muri shite ganbattatte ii koto nanihitotsu nai kara
Bukiyou de ii no sa hontou no kao misete motto
Mise tsudzukeru koto ga MOTTOO


TRANSLATION

I’m tired of this place. I’m tired of your words
I’m tired of telling lies. I don’t want to force myself to smile
You’ll become blind if you always perfunctorily say, “Oh well, never mind…”
It’s easy to play dumb, but it’s wrong, isn’t it?

I don’t want to get used to deceiving myself and others
I want to keep struggling and singing forever
Not a single good thing comes out of pushing yourself beyond your limit
It’s fine to be awkward. Keep showing yourself, that’s my motto

Sharp slicing words, embarrassing words like "Yeah, I'm already 30 ☆"
Forcing yourself to say them is your way of survival. Yes. Your way for you to stay as

you are
People always compare themselves to others, come here when you’re tired of that
Who else could you ever want to be but yourself?

Everyone is wonderful just for being alive
You only hurt yourself by wearing rose-coloured sunglasses
The person you’ve created by overstretching yourself, that’s not you
It’s fine to be honest, right? Show me your real face, more!

Even if their heart-breaking words make you cry
Remember, there’s someone out there singing for you
Leave this honours-student-loving world behind. Just be yourself
Because it’s enough if you breathe, that’s enough

I don’t want to become used to deceiving myself and others
I want to keep struggling and singing forever
Not a single good thing comes out of pushing yourself beyond your limit
It’s fine to be awkward. Show me your real face, more!
Keep showing yourself, that’s my motto


Abe Mao - Hikari

Akenai yamiyo wo anata wa mou nando koeta no?
Aishita dareka no omokage wo sagashite

Tooi basho ni iru anata ni mou nando mo yobikakete iru kedo
Boku no koe wa kikoeru? Tashika ni ikidzuiteru sono mune ni

Ima no boku ni wa konna koto de shika tsutaerareru sube ga nai no dakedo
Mouichido issho ni waraitai yo nee... doko ni iru no?

Ashita mukae ni yuku kara mada kienaide
Akenai anata no yoru ni ashita wo motte yuku kara douka...
Ah...

Aitai anata wo sagashi tsudzukete naki tsukarete
Demo kono basho de shinjiteru mada hikaru inochi no tomoshibi wo

Doko wo mite mo sekai wa kura sugite sukoshi saki no michi mo mienai kara
Anata wo hayaku mitsukerareru you ni kami-sama, hikari wo boku ni kudasai

Douka anata no egao ga mada aru you ni
Boku ga anata no moto ni hikari wo motte yuku kara
Ima wa mada aenakute mo wasurenaide
Itsuka mata issho ni te wo totte warau no dakara

Aitai... tada anata ni, aitai...
Kanarazu mukae ni yuku kara matte ite

Ashita mukae ni yuku kara mada kienaide
Boku ga anata no yoru ni ashita wo motte yuku kara
Kanarazu... kanarazu.

TRANSLATION

How many dark endless nights have you spent
Searching for traces of your loved ones?

You’re so far away and I am calling out to you again and again
But can you even hear my voice? It’s surely inside your heart

This is the only way for me to say these things right now
I want to smile with you one more time, hey… Where are you?

Tomorrow will come for you, so don’t disappear yet
I will bring tomorrow’s light to your endless night, so please…

Wishing to see you, I search for you. I’m tired from crying
But in this place I continue to believe in life’s shining light

Where ever you look, the world is too dark and the road ahead is shrouded as well
Please let me find you quickly. Gods, please send me light

Please let your smile still be here
I will bring light to where you are
Don’t forget, even if we can’t meet just yet
Someday we’ll link hands and smile together again

I want to see… only you, I want to see you…
I will definitely come for you, so please wait

Tomorrow will come for you, so don’t disappear yet
I will bring tomorrow’s light to your night, so…
Definitely, definitely, definitely
