Why is my heart so exhausted from crying?

When I look at the smile on the faces of people passing by
I can't help wondering if they're laughing at me

Why is it that I'm still rejecting people
Even though my heart is crying from loneliness?

Another "me" is lamenting and screaming out
That she wants someone to cherish
Someone to laugh together and cry together

TOMODACHI wa  denshi de dekita
Awaku hikaru  hakoniwa no naka

I've made some friends  through the help of electronic devices
Inside the dimly illuminated  miniature garden

Hanare yasuku  chikazuki yasui
Mezawari nara  tsukihanaseba ii

It's easy to grow distant  but it's also easy to get close
If they become annoying  I can simply push them away

Konna jibun wo sutete  umare kawaritai'n deshou?

Don't you want to throw away this self  to be reborn?

Ima mo konnani  chiisana hamon ni sae
Obie fureru koto sura tameratte iru mama de

Right now, I'm scared  even of the small ripples
And I'm hesitating, unable to touch them

Ii kagen me wo samashite

I cannot possibly become "my real self" that I've secretly yearned for
Get a grip and open your eyes

Give your own back a little push
I'm going to fade away, but I will forever watch over you
