Lyrics from
O-yasumi no aisatsu kawashitara
hitorikiri de beddo no ue
Kāten shimete akari o otosu to
soko wa hitori kodoku no yami

Lyrics from
After saying goodnight to everyone,
I lay all alone on my bed.
When the curtain's shut and the lights are out,
I'm there by myself in the lonely dark.

Lyrics from
O-kiniiri no kuma no nuigurumi
gyutto dakishimete

Lyrics from
My favourite teddy bear
I squeeze tight.

Lyrics from
Yukkuri mabuta o tojireba
nani mo nai dare mo inai mugen no sekai
Kibō dattari fuan dattari
hitasura ōkiku uzumaite
Kon'ya mo mata nemurenai
nagai yo ga hajimaru

Lyrics from
Once I slowly close my eyelids,
it's an infinite world where there's nothing and noone.
There are hopes and there are fears,
ever swirling bigger.
Tonight begins another
long, sleepless night.

Lyrics from
Yamiyo no machi wa iya ni shizuka de
tateoba mu no sekai no yō
Tōku kikoeru sairen no oto ga
honno sukoshi fuan o aoru

Lyrics from
In the darkness of night the town is unpleasantly quiet,
like it's a world of nothingness.
The sound of a distant siren
stirs just a little unease.

Lyrics from
Daisuki na kuma no nuigurumi
tsuyoku dakishimete

Lyrics from
My teddy bear I like so much
I hug tightly.

Lyrics from
Dore dake me o tojite mite mo
hitasura ni tsuzuku makkura na sekai
Kotoba ni dekinai futashika na nanika ga
tada hitasura ni ōkiku natte
Nasu sube mo nai uchi ni
nagai yo ga fukete'ku

Lyrics from
No matter how much I try to shut my eyes
the pitch-black world keeps on going.
Something uncertain, indescribable
only gets bigger and bigger.
While I don't even have a way of dealing with it,
the long night wears on.

Lyrics from
Yatto nemuri ni ochita koro
o-hoshi-sama mo shigoto o oete
asa no nioi ga tadayou koro
Boku wa yōyaku yume no naka

Lyrics from
When at last I fall asleep,
the stars have ended their work
and it's time for the smell of morning to drift in.
As for me, I'm finally in the world of dreams.
