Sayonara - Off Course



Off Course - Sayonara 1979

Mou owari da ne kimi ga chiisaku mieru (It's over, you appear smaller)
Boku wa omowazu kimi wo dakishimetakunaru (It's my natural reaction to want to hold you tight)
"watashi wa nakanai kara konomama hitori ni shite" (I won't cry, so go and let me be (alone))
Kimi no hoho wo namida ga nagarete wa ochiru (Down your cheeks the tears flow and drop)

"bokura wa jiyuu da ne" itsuka sou hanashita ne (We are free, or so we'd discussed once)
Marude kyou no koto nante omoi mo shinaide (We had no idea where we'd be today)

* sayonara sayonara sayonara
Mou sugu soto wa shiroi fuyu (Soon, the outside world will turn white with snow)
Aishita no wa tashika ni kimi dake (It's for certain you're the only one I've ever loved)
Sonomama no kimi dake (Just you, as you are)

Ai wa kanashii ne boku no kawari ni kimi ga (Love is sad, maybe tonight instead of me)
Kyou wa dareka no mune ni nemuru kamoshirenai (You'll find someone else's chest to fall asleep in)
Boku ga tereru kara daremo miteinai michi wo (Because I'm timid, you used to love the hidden side streets)
Yorisoi arukeru samui hi ga kimi wa suki datta (On those cold days we could walk huddled closely together)

* repeat

Soto wa kyou mo ame yagate yuki ni natte (It's rain again. Eventually, it'll turn to snow)
Bokura no kokoro no naka ni furitsumoru darou (to accumulate inside our hearts)
Furitsumoru darou
