Departure

Lyrics & Music: MAMI
Arrangement: Seiji Kameda

The season of cherry blossoms has come, hasn't it?
In that downtown park too
Not succumbing to the cold, they flutter
And reach full bloom this year too

The lights glowed beautifully
On the nights we walked together, didn't they?
At a short pace, I'm also walking
Steadily, one step at a time

How many months have passed
Since then?
I feel like I'm gonna forget
The cherry blossoms we stopped to looked at

In the season where someone decided
That if there are meetings there will be partings too
We said "See ya later" and gave a big wave
And made sure it wasn't a farewell
I hope the feelings I couldn't put into words
Are able to ride on these flower petals
Even now I still perfectly remember
The things that you taught me

When the season of cherry blossoms passes by
That downtown park
Gets quiet and somewhat lonely
As if it had finished its role

Is it unchanged even now?
The things I don't know have surely increased
Because I don't want to depend on you too much
Two shadows were left behind on that day

You watched over
My first tears and my last smile
Afraid of blinking my eyes
I burned you in my memories over and over
Words aren't enough
When I shouted that selfishness
I just troubled you
I noticed
That you loved me

All these months since then
Have changed me
So I wonder if I look different
The cherry blossoms are beautifully in full bloom

In the season where someone decided
That if there are meetings there will be partings too
We said "See ya later" and gave a big wave
And made sure it wasn't a farewell
I hope the feelings I couldn't put into words
Are able to ride on these flower petals
Now I understand perfectly
What you taught me
Even now...

Sakura no kisetsu ga kita ne

Sayonara ja nai koto tashikameta

Kono hanabira ni nosereba ii n da yo

Departure

桜の季節が来たね
商店街のあの公園も
寒さに負けずにヒラヒラと
今年も満開を迎えてます

一緒に歩いた夜は
綺麗に明かりが灯ってたね
短い歩幅で着々と
私も一歩ずつ歩いてます

あれからどれくらい
月日が経ったのかなんてさ
忘れそうになるな
立ち止って見上げた サクラ

出会いもあれば別れもあるなんて
誰かが決めた季節に
またね と大きく手を振って
さよならじゃないこと確かめた
言葉にならない気持ちは
この花びらに乗せればいいんだよ
って君が教えてくれたこと
いまでもちゃんと覚えているから

桜の季節が過ぎると
商店街のあの公園も
役目を終えたように静かで
なんだか少し寂しくなります

いまでも変わらない?
知らないこともきっと増えたね
甘えたくないから
あの日に置いてきた二つの影

最初の涙も最後の笑顔も
見守ってくれた君を
瞬きするのも怖がって
何度も何度も焼き付けてた
言葉が足りない
そんなわがままを
叫んでは困らせた
君が想ってくれたこと
気づけなかったわけではないけど

あれからたくさんの
月日が私を変えたから
違って見えたのかな
綺麗に咲き誇った サクラ

出会いもあれば別れもあるなんて
誰かが決めた季節に
またね と大きく手を振って
さよなら じゃないこと確かめた
言葉にならない気持ちは
この花びらに乗せればいいんだよ
って君が教えてくれたこと
いまなら ちゃんとわかっているから
いまでも…
