Futari no Natsu

Words by Sakai Izumi/Music by Kuribayashi Seiichirou/Arrangement by Akashi Masao

Guuzenni mikaketa no Basutei de
(Unexpectedly I noticed you at the bus stop)
Kekkon suru to uwasa de kiita kedo
(I heard the rumour that you are getting married)
Suutsu sugata no anata wa
(You in a suit)
Yakeni otona ni mieta
(Looked awfully grown-up)
Sukoshi kyori kanjita sei?
(Was it because I felt a little distance?)
Koe kake sobireta no
(I failed to speak)

Wasurekaketa Futari no natsu Mune ni yomigaeru
(I have not fully forgotten Our summer together Is reviving in my heart)
Are kara mou Dore kurai no toki ga tatta no darou
(How much time has passed since then)
Furimuku hazu no nai anata ni
(To you who cannot look back)
Sayonara itta
(I said good-bye)
Douka zutto kawarazu ni ite
Daisuki datta Egao dake wa
(By all means please don't ever change
The smile that I liked very much)

Wakaretemo Shibaraku wa kanashikute
(Even after we separated I was sad for a long time)
Anata no denwa Zutto matte ita no
(The whole time I waited for your phone call)
Ima wa mou sorezore ni
(By now respectively)
Chigau paatonaa mitsuke
(We find different partners)
Betsu no michi arukidashita
(We started walking separate paths)
Mou modoranai wa
(No longer turning back)

Kagayaiteta Futari no natsu Nami ga sarau you ni
(Our summer together Shined Like waves sweeping away)
Itsuka wa kitto Tooi kioku no kanata ni kieteku
(Surely someday It will fade away beyond far memory)
Anata no shashin taisetsuni shimatte oku wa
(I carefully put away your pictures)
Itsuka dokoka de mata aeru koto
Inotteru wa Genki de ne
(I am praying [for the chance that] sometime somewhere we can meet again
Please take care)
