Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Machikado no katasumi de
ugomeite iru ikimono
Sorenarini hataraite
kyō mo kurashite'masu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
On a street corner somewhere
a life form is squirming.
It does its share of work
and lives another day.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Itsu datte boku nante
okubyō na hikagemono
Taiyō ni sakaratta
kaze ni yurarenagara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Someone like me is perpetually
a timid outcast.
Blown about by the wind,
I avoid the sun.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Sō, ima no ima no ima made
daiji ni sodatete kita no desu
Dare mo kizuki wa shinai kedo
boku wa koko ni iru no desu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Yes, until very recently
I was looked after and raised well.
No-one takes any notice of me
but I'm right here.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Anata ni misetakute
kaerimichi denchū no kage ni hisomu
Sukoshi wa waraitakute
gensō to genjō no sukima o nozoku

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Wanting you to see me
on the way home I lurk in the shadow of the telegraph pole.
Wanting to smile a little
I peer into the crack between illusion and reality.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Dare datte tsumazuite
mae ni susunde iku mono
Hyōshiki ni butsukatte
kyō mo mogaite imasu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Everyone stumbles
and then moves forward.
I bump against a sign
and struggle on again today.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Itsu datte boku datte
hisshi ni ikite'ru n da mono
Sō yatte tsubuyaite
machi o nagamete ita

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I too always
desperately try to stay alive.
I grumbled like that
and stared at the town.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Nagareru hibi no uragawa wa
sukoshi akite kita no desu
Dare mo mimuki mo shinai kedo
boku wa koko ni iru no desu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Underlying the passage of days
I've started getting a bit sick of life.
No-one pays any attention to me
but I'm right here.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Anata ni furetakute
yane no ue yūyake no kage ni hisomu
Sukoshi wa kawaritakute
senbō to zetsubō no sukima de sugosu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Wanting to touch you
I lurk in the evening shadows on the rooftop.
Wanting to change a little,
I spend my life in the crack between envy and despair.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Kyō mo asu mo asatte mo
kawarazu sugite'ku mono desu
Dareka kizuite kureru hi o
zutto matte iru no desu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I spend today, tomorrow and day after
without any change.
I keep on waiting
for the day when someone will notice me.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Anata ni misetakute
kaerimichi denchū no kage ni hisomu
Sukoshi wa waraitakute
gensō to genjō no sukima o nozoku

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Wanting you to see me
on the way home I lurk in the shadow of the telegraph pole.
Wanting to smile a little
I peer into the crack between illusion and reality.
