Say Yes

Kimi wa kaze no yoo ni
Aoku chigirenagara
Asphalt ni kieta.

Kesshite makenai to
Itta ano hi no koe
Dakishimete mo
“Just wind blows.”

Hashiru hodo biru no
tani wa kuzuresoo de.
Omoikiri kuchibiru kamishimeru yo
Kono arashi ga yamu made wa.

“Say yes!”
Kinoo yori mo atsuku ikiru dake
“Say yes!”
Iyasenai kodoku o shitta kara.
“Say yes!”
Kimi ni kikoeru nara kotaete.

“I can be, I can do,
I can sing, I can live.”

Kabe no ushirogawa
Nanika kirameku no sa
Sore wa yoru no knife.

Kimi ga kakushiteta
Yume no “area” dake wa
Watasanai yo “Forever.”

Miageru to hitomi ga mada itai keredo
Platina no namida wa hoshi ni naru ne
Moshi mirai o tsukandara.

“Say yes!”
Kanashimi yori fukaku shinjitai
“Say yes!”
Watashitachi jiyuu ga niaukoto.
“Say yes!”
Ima wa tooi kimi e todoite:

“You can be, you can do,
you can sing, you can live.”

Like the wind, you disappeared
into the asphalt,
while being torn to pale ribbons.

Though I hold on to your voice
saying, that day,
“I won't be beaten,”
it's just the wind blowing.

The faster I run, the more it seems like
buildings are going to fall on me,
and I bite my lip and tough it out,
until the storm subsides.

“Say yes!”
I just live hotter than yesterday…
“Say yes!” …because I've known loneliness
that I couldn't do anything about.
“Say yes!” Answer me if you can
hear me saying,

“I can be, I can do,
I can sing, I can live.”

Something twinkles
behind the wall –
it is the knife of darkness.

The only place I won't ever surrender
to it is the area where you hid
your dreams.

When I look up now, my eyes still hurt from
crying, but if I can work out my future,
these platinum tears will become stars.

“Say yes!” I want to believe
deeply that freedom…
“Say yes!” …is more becoming
to us than sorrow.
“Say yes!” I hope these words will reach
you, now that you're far away from me:

“You can be, you can do,
you can sing, you can live.”
