Kasanegi shita ishou o nuide
Kimi ni tsubusareta Pride o [1]
Kagami ni utsushite mite mitara
Nasakenakute waraete kita

Tada tsuyoku aru tame
"Kimi o mamoru tame" to
Sou yatte itsudemo dareka no sei ni shiteta
Katai kara no naka de

It's only you that I'm wanting baby everyday
Hadaka no kokoro de
Mijime na jibun itsuka ai seru youni
Hito wa totemo yowai mono de
Yogorete iru kedo
Sunao na nae o ueta nara
Arukidaseru kara

Kobamareru koto ga kowakatta
Osanai koro kara ima mo sou...
Ikutsu no kamen o tsuketa darou
Honto no jibun ushinau hodo

Ima itsuwaru subete
Mie ya kazari o sute
Sou yatte tsukanda hitonigiri no honne
Namida shimita hikari

It's only you that I'm needing baby all the way
Hadaka no kotoba de
Mijime na jibun itsuka yuruseru youni
Hito wa totemo mijuku na mono
Ayumi osokutomo
Soboku na kajitsu minottara
Kimi ni todoketai

(I promise to be true to you
So take me as I am beneath my skin)

I wanna be the one to take your pain away
Hadaka no onpu de
Mijime na jibun itsuka kanadetai kara
Hito wa daremo yowai keredo
Hitori janai hazu
Sunao na nae o ueta nara
Furimukazu yukou

(I promise to be true to you...) x4

When I take off all my layers of clothing,
And look in the mirror
At the pride you crushed, [1]
I look so pitiful it makes me laugh.

Just to be strong,
And "to protect you"...
I was in my hard shell,
Always putting the blame on somebody else.

It's only you that I'm wanting baby, everyday --
Someday, I want to be able to love my miserable self
With a naked heart.
People are very weak,
And no one is clean,
But if we plant a humble rice seed,
Then we can move on.

Ever since I was young
I was scared of rejection; I still am...
How many masks did I put on?
Enough to lose my true self.

Now I throw away all the lies,
The displays, and decorations,
And grab a handful of true emotion,
A light bathed in tears.

It's only you that I'm needing baby, all the way --
Someday, I want to be able to forgive my miserable self
With naked words.
People are green,
But no matter how slowly they walk,
Once the simple fruit has ripened,
I want to send it to you.

(I promise to be true to you,
So take me as I am beneath my skin...)

I wanna be the one to take your pain away --
Someday, I want to sing of my miserable self
With naked musical notes.
Everyone is weak,
But we are not alone.
If we plant a humble rice seed,
Let's move on without looking back.

(I promise to be true to you...) x4
