Arikitari datta
Anata to no sayonara wa
Kaze no youna boku no
Kumo no youna kimagure

Kaeshi wasurete
DOONATSU (Donut)-ban kakete miru [1]
SUROO (Slow) na RIZUMU (Rhythm) mo
Nazeka umaku norenakute

Ima dakara wakatta
Ano toki mita namida mo
Nanimo iwazu wakareta
Chinmoku no koe mo
Kono mune ni hibiku

Donna wagamama sae mo
Anata wa itsumo yurushite kureta
Wasurenai yo toshiue datta
Hidamari no youna hito yo

Kagami no mae de
Hada no koto ki ni shiteta 
Sonna asa de sae mo
Mou modorenai bamen sa

Kusari no kagi ga
Hitotsu hetta dake na no ni
POKETTO (Pocket) mo kokoro mo
Karappo ni natta youde

Ai to iu kiza na kotoba o
Moshimo tsukau to shitara
Ima made sugoshite kita
Anata to no hibi o
Sono moji ni kaeru

Donna wagamama sae mo
Anata wa itsumo yurushite kureta
Wasurenai yo toshiue datta
Hidamari no youna hito yo

Donna wagamama sae mo
Anata wa itsumo yurushite kureta
Itsuka kitto aeru to ii ne
Namaiki na boku no mama de [2]

Our breakup
Was conventional --
I'm capricious like a wind,
With whims like a cloud.

I decide to put on an EP record  [1]
That I forgot to give back to you,
But I couldn't get myself
Into the slow rhythm.

I can understand it all now --
The tears I saw then,
And the silence of our parting...
They all echo
In my heart.

You always forgave me
For all the selfish things I did...
I won't forget you: you were older than me,
You were like a pool of sunshine.

You were worrying about your complexion
In front of the mirror...
We can't even go back
To those mornings anymore.

Even though I just have one less key
On my keychain,
I feel as though both my pocket
And my heart have gone empty.

If I were to use
A cheesy word like "love",
I'll substitute
That word
For the days I spent with you.
 
You always forgave me
For all the selfish things I did...
I won't forget you: you were older than me,
You were like a pool of sunshine.

You always forgave me
For all the selfish things I did...
I hope we can meet again someday,
When I'm still the same smartass. [2]
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
First, I wanna say something: I like how these lyrics go with "Kill Me". (^^) "Kill Me" is about breaking up, and these lyrics are about moving on from a breakup. ^^

[1] According to Salinde, "doughtnuts" are what EP (and LP) records were nicknamed in Japan. (I thought it meant an actual doughnut. [xD] In the USA, we call those records "fourty-fives". 45 was the quality of the record, I believe.)

     You can learn more here (oddly enough, both pages show the EXACT SAME PICTURE. xD) -- Wiki USA , Wiki Japan



[2] (from Salinde): The word ["smartass"] doesn't work well in a song, but it's what he says ^^;
