Mr Children: Tabidachi no Uta (A Song for Setting Off)

Tabidachi no Uta (A Song for Setting Off)

translation & romaji by Lunalux

Don’t be afraid.
Even if you don’t go around turning on the lights
someday your lonely nights will see the dawn.

The day you fall you’ll get up and see that the scenery that felt
so very far away seems almost within reach.

the song you loved is playing throughout the town
it’s an incidental gift given to me by chance.

Ah, a song for setting off
So, where to? We’ll meet again.
Ah but for now, it’s “goodbye”

When I lose sight of who I am,
I’ll turn to you
But even if you do somehow hear me,
don’t worry about responding
I lost something important to me,
and then got it back and like that process,

each time feels new again though
I said, “we can’t keep crying and laughing about it like this”
I wanted someone to share with.

Now without hesitation, I can say that I love you.
And that’s how I’ll spend my days.
No matter where I am.

Ah the last song sung in celebration of a fresh start
Now I wave goodbye.

Ah, farewell to sorrow!
when you get too tired to go on,
give a quick look back
because from somewhere out of reach
I’ll be there urging you onward.

Ah, A song for setting off
So, where to?
We’ll meet again.

Ah but for now, it’s “goodbye”
When you start to forget who you are,
idly scan your memories
for throughout my whole body,
you’re there with a smile urging me onward
but don’t worry about responding.[

Romaji

Kowagaranai de
te atarishitai ni akari tsukenakutemo
itsuka hitoribochi no yoru wa aketeyuku yo
korondahi wa haruka tooku kanjite itakeshiki mo
oki agatte yokumiruto nankatadori tsukesojyan
kimi no daisukidatta uta machi ni nagareru
sore wa guuzen ga boku ni kureta
sarigenai okurimono

Tabidachi no uta saa doko e ikou?
mata dokoka de deaeru ne
toriaesu sayounara
jibun ga dareka wakaranaku narutoki kimi ni katari kakeru yo
demo moshi kikoete itatte henji wa iranaikara

taisetsuna mono wo nakushite matate ni irete
sonna kurikaeshi no youde sonotabi atarashikute
kore ijyu namida nakashitari warai attari
dekinai to ittetatte yappari hitokoishikute

ima ga daisukidatte chyuchona doshinaide ieru
sonna fuu ni hibi wo kizande ikou
donna basho ni itemo

hajimari no iwai utausaigo no uta
boku wa ima te wo furu yo
kanashimi ni sayounara
tsukarehatete ashi ga tomarutoki sukoshidake burigatte yo
te no todokanai basho de senaka wo oshiterukara

tabidachi no uta saa doko e ikou?
mata dokoka de deaeru ne
toriaesu sayonara
jibun ga dareka wasuresonatoki bonyari omoidashite yo
hora boku no karadajyu egao no kimiga irukara
senaka wo oshiterukara
demo henji wa iranaikara
