[Translation]
The talks we had as we looked at each other
The stories that only we knew
I guess I can't erase them,
I can't throw them away,
I can't forget them
I look around these streets for the first time in a while
Whenever I pass this street, the good memories
They keep floating up in my head so I stop my footsteps
After a long time, I am here right now
Because I long for that time,
Though I tried to live without knowing,
I keep thinking about it
That's how I am, it keeps coming into my eyes
The times we spent together, the memories -
they fall like stars
How about you?
The people look only happy
It seems like I'm the only one left in loneliness
I try to pretend that I'm not
but I keep thinking of you
After a long time, I am here right now
Because I long for that time,
Though I tried to live without knowing,
I keep thinking about it
That's how I am, it keeps coming into my eyes
The times we spent together, the memories -
they fall like stars
Tears fall
If I wait here,
will I be able to see you?
Then will I be able to tell you
how I feel right now?
Because I miss you, because I am missing you
That's how I am, I only know you
Living without you makes me filled
with regret about everything
Because you're not here,
because there are so many empty things
Again today, I long for that spot and
my footsteps won't move and I call out to you
