Mr Children: Distance

January 11, 2009

Distance

We’re silent
Just like we always are
Driving down the highway at night

The familiar town behind our backs
Sadness in our hearts
Moonlight driving for the last time tonight

The words you said then
Have become a lie

Before your smile that I loved
Blurred through my tears
Goodbye sparkled
Leaving nothing but my memories in my heart

When the rain that lashes the window stops
We face
Our lonely freedom

I began to notice
That our hearts were drifting apart
Connected only by kindness

Back then we talked
About our dreams from now

Though we both knew
That this day would someday come
We stayed together

Was it just cowardice?
Or was it because we loved each other?

I step hard on the gas and head for your town
Amid memories I can’t take back

Before your smile that I loved
Blurred through my tears
Goodbye sparkled

Though we both knew
That this day would someday come
We stayed together
Was it just cowardice?
Or do we still
Love each other?

Distance

Itsumo no you ni zutto
Damatta mama futari
Hashirinukeru yoru no haiwei

Minareta machi wo se ni
Kanashimi wo mune ni
Konya saigo no moonlight driving

Ano toki kimi ga itteta
Kotoba ga ima uso ni naru

Itoshii kimi no egao ga
Namida de nijimu mae ni
Sayonara kagayaite ita omoide dake wo
Kokoro no naka ni

Mado wo utsu ame ga
Yamukoro ni wa futari
Kodoku na jiyuu to mukiatte

Ki zuki hajimeteta
Hanarete iku kokoro
Tsunaida no wa itawari dake

Ano toki boku ga hanashita
Kore kara no futari no yume

Itsuka wa konna hi ga kuru to
Tagai ni wakatteta no ni
Sore demo soba ni ita no wa

Okubyou dakara?
Aishite ita kara?

Akuseru wo tsuyoku funde kimi no machi e
Nido to wa hikikaesenai kioku no naka e

Itoshii kimi no egao ga
Namida de nijimu mae ni
Sayonara kagayaite ita omoide ni ima

Itsuka wa konna hi ga kuru to
Tagai ni wakatteta no ni
Sore demo soba ni ita no wa
Okubyou dakara?
Sore tomo ima demo
Aishite iru kara?
