Print Lyrics


Tsuyu ga owaru to matsuri no junbi
Machijuu ga nen ni ichido
Sowasowa ukaredasu

Yasumi nara asobi ni kite hoshii kedo
Taikutsu ga nigate naraba muri da ne

Mado o akereba asayake no umi
Natsu ga hajimaru shiokaze
Inaka gurashi wa jiyuu de ii ne
Nakitai toki nakeru shi

Ironna koto o wakarihajimeta
Tomato wa honto wa amai
Tomodachi sugu dekiru

Iku hyaku no tourou-tachi nagareteku
Sono naka no hitotsu ni te o awaseru

Taeru koto nai kono semi shigure
Natsu ga kieteku made ni wa
Sukoshi gurai wa tsuyoku naritai
Hiyake saseta watashi ni

Shinpai nai daijoubu da yo
Hitori demo waratte miteru

Imamade nanimo jibun hitori de
Kimeta koto nai watashi ga
Koko de kurashite yukou to omou
Kare no umareta machi de

Mado o akereba asayake no umi
Natsu ga hajimaru shiokaze
Inaka gurashi wa jiyuu de ii ne
Nakitai toki nakeru shi


When the rainy season is over, we prepare for the festival:
The whole town comes alive
Once a year.

If you have time off, I'd like you to come and see me.
But if you don't like being bored, I guess it's a no-go.

When I open the window I see the morning glow on the sea,
The early summer sea breeze...
Country life is nice and free;
You can cry when you want to.

I've begun to understand all kinds of things:
Tomatoes are actually sweet...
You can make friends right away...

Hundreds of lanterns go by;
I put my hands together in prayer at one.

The cicadas chirp constantly, never stopping.
By the time summer is over,
I want to be a little stronger...
I have a tan now.

You don't have to worry about me, I'm OK;
I'm trying to smile alone.

I've never decided anything
On my own before,
But now I think I'll live here
In the town where he was born.

When I open the window, I see the morning glow on the sea,
The early summer sea breeze...
Country life is nice and free;
You can cry when you want to.
