“Kane wo Narashite” (trans. “Ring a Bell”)

VERSE 1
Kimi to hanarete, boku wo sagashite
Ikusen no yo wo aruite
Nani wo mezashite, dare wo shinjite
Chikatte wa mata yuraida

Yuuyami ni wa kiba wo mukedo
Tsuyokunai sou tsuyoku wa nai
Kimi ni se wo mukete hisashiku
Manten no hoshizora ga sabishii

*CHORUS 1
Hikari wa kage no, kage wa hikari no
Hate made tsuite iku no darou
Boku ga waratte ikite ita no nara
Kane wo narashite, kimi ni shirase yo

VERSE 2
Yurushita mono to, yurusareta mono wa
Onaji kizu wake atte
Omote to ura no kanashimi wa itsuka
Rakuen de iyasareru

Asamoya ni kodama suru kane
Tookunai sou tooku wa nai
Kimi ga kimi rashiku aru koto
Sore wa mata kodoku to mo iu

CHORUS 2
Hikari wa kage no, kage wa hikari no
Hate made tsuite iku no darou
Kumo ga kagette sora ga naitara
Kane wo narashite, kimi wo sagasu yo

BRIDGE
Sekai wa shiro ka kuro, heiwa ka arasoi
Heads or tails, you and I
Light and dark, ups and downs

Sono mannaka de bokutachi wa
Itsuka deai te wo tsunagu darou ka

“Ring a Bell”


VERSE 1
Reaching up for no man’s land
To take a breath and take a chance
I’d walk a thousand nights to change the world
Where to go? When to stop?
Who to trust? What to say?
Found them all—just need someone to share

It’s now in the dusk everyday to carry on
Ain’t so strong—I ain’t so strong to go
Living in the past is not the way to live
I wish you could hear me say that I miss you

*CHORUS 1
Why were we there back to back?
Why were we there face to face?
I must be the light when you’re in the dark
If you lose me somewhere, and your tears are in the air
I will ring a bell until you feel me by your side

VERSE 2
Looking up into the sky, looking for the reason
Why I’m here and why you can’t be here
Who’s to hate? Who’s to blame?
Who’s to hurt? Who’s to love?
Who decides? Why we can’t we be the same?

Try to believe walking down the lonesome road
Ain’t so far—I ain’t so far from you
Staying the way you are means solitude
I wish you were here and shook off my fear

CHORUS 2
Why were we there back to back?
Why were we there face to face?
I must be the light when you’re in the dark
If I lose you somewhere, and I’m still hanging in there
I will ring a bell until you feel me by your side

BRIDGE
What has been in the mix too long?
There’s the peace when you’re at war
Heads or tails, you and I
Light and dark, ups and downs
What has been in the middle? What’s there to divide us?
If you’re hurt, cry and say, “Can’t you see you’re my other half?”
