Original / Romaji LyricsEnglish Translation
Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Yūyami ni shizumu chiisana kage futatsu
Sore wa katsute no otoko no ko to onna no ko
Kuchi ni dasu "gomen" to tōi densha no oto
Me no mae de kimi wa naite ita

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Two little shadows sink into the dusk.
They were once a boy and a girl.
A "sorry" that comes to my lips and the sound of a distant train.
In front of my eyes you were crying.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Seibetsu no zure ogomakashitagaru kiyasume wa
zurui ki ga shite ienakatta

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
A consolation which wants to dodge the gender gap,
I felt it would be deceitful so I couldn't say it.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
E no umakatta kimi ga kaite ita
kakū no sekai to mō aenai no ka na
Nuritsubusarete moto ni modoranai hibi
E o kaku sugata ga suki datta
E o kaku sugata wa suki datta kara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
You, who were good at drawing,
used to draw imaginary worlds. I wonder if I'll never get to see them again.
Blotted out days that won't come back.
Coz I liked watching you draw.
I liked watching you draw.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Nōto ni ikizuku fukashigi na seibutsu
arienai fūkei o kossori to misete kureta
Jibun ni nai mono kimi ni wa aru mahō
Tanoshii hanmen kuyashikute

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Brought to life in your notebook, incredible creatures,
impossible scenes you sneaked to show me.
Something I lack, a magic you possess.
A pleasant opposite, yet regretful.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Hashibashi ni omoi ga koboreochiru
Kirai de wa nakatta keredo
hoka ni suki na hito ga ita kara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
My feelings spill out all over the place.
I didn't dislike you, but
it's because there was someone else I liked.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
E no umakatta kimi wa naite ita
nōto no sekai wa egao ni michite'ru no ni
Bukiyō na mama hanareta futari no kyori
E o kaku sugata ga suki datta
E o kaku sugata wa suki datta kara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
You, who were good at drawing, were crying,
even though the world in your notebook was full of smiling faces.
Things were awkward between us as we parted ways.
Coz I liked watching you draw.
I liked watching you draw.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Osanai kimi no e wa tama ni chotto
nanika nite'ru toki mo atta kedo
aete damatta mama
zutto hohoendetari shite

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Your pictures from when you were young,
there were times when they looked a bit familiar, (1)
but, without say a word,
I remained there smiling.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
E no umakatta kimi ga kaite ita
kakū no sekai o futo mata omoidasu yo
Ima de mo genki ni tanoshiku e o kaite'masu ka
E o kaku sugata ga suki datta
E o kaku sugata wa suki datta kara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
You, who were good at drawing,
used to draw imaginary worlds which come to mind again unexpectedly.
Even now, are you still at it, drawing pictures happily?
Coz I liked watching you draw.
I liked watching you draw.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
E no umakatta tomodachi no sekai o
mō ichidō sugu soba de mitakatta

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The world my friend who was good at drawing made,
one more time, I would've liked to see it up close.

(1) Miku sees her friend draw a picture of her and he blushes.
