Kawaranai Mono

Found a quite old animemovie in my HDD. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. waa. cedey2 layan this animemovie. Memang touching lol.

Anyway the title isn’t about the animemovie (in Japanese it is call Toki o Kakeru Shojo), but the title is about one of the best song heard in the movie (somewhere during the last part, where she went back through time and remembered of Chiaki-kun), Kawara Nai Mono, or in plain English, Unchanging Things.

Here’s the lyrics (thanks animelyrics.com) : [Oh yeah, it might be a little small on your screen, so press “CTRL”  and “+” at the same time to enlarge it]

Original / Romaji Lyrics English Translation
kaerimichi fuzakete aruita
wake mo naku kimi wo okoraseta
ironna kimi no kao wo mitakattanda
We joked around on our way home.
I made you angry for no reason.
I guess I just wanted to see your different sides.
ookina hitomi ga nakisou na koe ga
ima mo boku no mune wo shimetsukeru
surechigau hito no naka de kimi wo oikaketa
Your large eyes, your trembling voice,
Even now they are close by my heart.
In the crowd of strangers, I ran after you.
kawaranai mono sagashiteita
ano hi no kimi wo wasure wa shinai
toki wo koeteku omoi ga aru
boku wa ima sugu kimi ni aitai
I was searching for the things that never change.
I will never forget how you were on that day.
These feelings I have transcend time.
I just want to meet you now.
gaitou ni burasageta omoi
itsumo kimi ni watasenakatta
yoru wa bokutachi wo toozakete-itta ne
These feelings upon which the street lights shine,
I could never manage to let you have them.
The nights brought us further away from each other.
mienai kokoro de uso tsuita koe ga
ima mo boku no mune ni hibiteiru
samayou toki no naka de kimi to koi wo shita
The lie you told through your opaque heart,
Even now it continues to resonate within me.
Uncertain of our future, you and I fell in love.
kawaranai mono sagashiteita
ano hi mitsuketa shiranai basho e
kimi wo futari de yukeru no nara
boku wa nando mo umarekawareru
I was searching for the things that never change.
The unfamiliar place we found on that day,
If the two of us can go there together again,
I will be reborn as many times as it takes.
katachi nai mono dakishimeteta
kowareru oto mo kikoenai mama
kimi to aruita onaji michi ni
ima mo akari wa terashi-tsudzukeru
As I embrace the things that have no shape,
I fail to hear the breaking sound.
On the same path that we walked together,
Even now the light continues to shine.
kawaranai mono sagashiteita
ano hi no kimi wo wasure wa shinai
toki wo koeteku omoi ga aru
boku wa ima sugu kimi ni aitai
I was searching for the things that never change.
I will never forget how you were on that day.
These feelings I have transcend time.
I just want to meet you now.
boku wa ima sugu kimi ni aitai
I just want to meet you now.
