Friend

Lyrics: ayumi hamasaki
Composition: Yasuhiko Hoshino
Arrangement: akimitsu homma

When I was satisfied and could smile from my heart
I wasn't able to recognize my own happiness
I can't go back anymore no matter how nostalgic that summer is
because I was the one who let go of those slender but strong hands

Because you're important to me, I don't notice
and I'm about to lose sight of you, but
I tell myself over and over:
"There's only one you in this world"

A wind blows, heralding the change of seasons
I was afraid of myself as I felt you getting a little farther away
When we were still together, I cried because I was earnestly in love
I got hurt more easily then than now, but I'm sure I shined

When I find something I feel I can believe in
I'll always try to reach out my hand
I tell myself over and over:
"Even if we're apart, we're still friends in my heart"

Looking up at the sky on a clear day
Kicking puddles on a rainy day
I know over and over
the reason I was born, the meaning of living

Even on painful days when I feel like I'll be defeated by grief
Even if I want to run away into the night
I recall the days with you
over and over, and they support me
FRIEND

Kokoro kara waraete mitasareru toki niwa
Jibun no shiawase ni kizuku koto dekite nakatta yo
Mou modoru koto wa dekinai ano natsu natsukashiku nattemo
Hosokute demo tsuyoi sono te hanashita no watashi dakara

Taisetsu na hito dakara kizukanakute
Miushinaisou ni naru keredo
Kurikaeshi kurikaeshi iikikaseru yo
"Kono sekai ni kimi wa hitori shika inai"

Kisetsu no kawari me wo tsugeru kaze ga fuite
Kimi wo sukoshi tooku kanjiru jibun ni obieta yo
Futari mada issho ni ita koro shinken ni koishite naita ne
Ima yori KIZU tsukiyasukute demo kitto kagayaiteta

Shinjiraresou na mono mitsukattara
Kanarazu te wo nobashite miyou
Kurikaeshi kurikaeshi iikikaseru yo
"Hanaretetemo mune no oku de tomodachi da yo"

Hareta hi wa aozora wo miage nagara
Ame no hi wa mizutamari kette
Kurikaeshi kurikaeshi shitte iku yo
Umareta wake ikiru imi wo

Setsunasa ni makesou de kurushii hi mo
Yoru ni nigekomitaku nattemo
Kurikaeshi kurikaeshi kimi to no hibi
Omoidashite sasae ni shite

心から笑えて満たされる時には
自分の幸せに気付くことできてなかったよ
もう戻ることはできない あの夏なつかしくなっても
細くてでも強いその手 離したの私だから

大切なひとだから気付かなくて
見失いそうになるけれど
くり返しくり返し言い聞かせるよ
「この世界に君はひとりしかいない」

季節の変わり目を告げる風が吹いて
君を少し遠く感じる自分におびえたよ
ふたりまだ一緒にいた頃 真剣に恋して泣いたね
今よりキズつきやすくて でもきっと輝いてた

信じられそうなものみつかったら
必ず手を伸ばしてみよう
くり返しくり返し言い聞かせるよ
「離れてても胸の奥で友達だよ」

晴れた日は青空を見上げながら
雨の日は水たまりけって
くり返しくり返し知っていくよ
生まれた理由 生きる意味を

切なさに負けそうで苦しい日も
夜に逃げ込みたくなっても
くり返しくり返し 君との日々
思い出して支えにして
