手紙~拝啓十五の君へ~

歌/詞:アンジェラ·アキ

拝啓 この手紙読んでいるあなたは
どこで何をしているのだろう
十五の僕には誰にも話せない
悩みの種があるのです

(to you, who is reading this letter, where and what could you be doing?  there are already seeds of frustration in the fifteen-year-old me that i can't tell anyone)

未来の自分に宛てて書く手紙なら
きっと素直に打ち明けられるだろう

(yet if it is a letter addressed to my future self, i'm sure i'll be able to confide in it frankly)

今 負けそうで 泣きそうで
消えてしまいそうな僕は
誰の言葉を信じ歩けばいいの?
ひとつしかないこの胸が
何度もばらばらに割れて
苦しい中で今を生きている

(right now, whose words should i - defeated, tearful, about to vanish - trust to follow?
the one thing [i know is] no matter how many times my heart gets broken apart, i'm still living through the pain)

拝啓 ありがとう 十五のあなたに
伝えたいことがあるのです
自分とは何でどこへ向かうべきか
問い続ければ見えてくる

(to you who is fifteen, thank you, there are things i want to tell you,
questions like what am i and where ought i to go are questions that will reveal themselves as long you go on)


荒れた青春の海は厳しいけれど
明日の岸辺へと 夢の舟よ進め

(the rough seas of youth may be severe
but head for the shores of tomorrow on the boat of dreams)


今 負けないで 泣かないで
消えてしまいそうな時は
自分の声を信じ歩けばいいの
大人の僕も傷ついて
眠れない夜はあるけど
苦くて甘い今を生きている

(right now, don't be defeated, don't cry, when it seems like you're about to disappear, just walk on trusting in your own voice,
even though as an adult, i still get hurt and sleepless nights, i'm still living within this bittersweetness)


人生の全てに意味があるから
恐れずにあなたの夢育てて
keep on believing
keep on believing

(there is meaning in everything in life, don't be afraid to nurture your dreams, keep on believing, keep on believing)

負けないで 泣かないで
消えてしまいそうな僕は
誰の言葉を信じ歩けばいいの?
ああ 負けないで 泣かないで
消えてしまいそうな時は
自分の声を信じ歩けばいいの
いつの時代も悲しみを
避けては通れないけれど
笑顔を見せて 今を生きていこう

(don't be defeated, don't cry, when it seems like i'm going to disappear, whose words should i trust to follow?
ah, don't be defeated, don't cry, when it seems like
you're going to disappear, just walk on trusting your own voice
there will always be times when sadness cannot be avoided
[but] show me your smile, let's live now)


拝啓 この手紙読んでいるあなたは
幸せな事を願います

(to you who is reading this letter
i wish you happiness)
