Lyrics from
watashi wa kyou, kono machi wo dete ikimasu. [1]
kariteta mama no hon wa tsukue no ue.
ORENJI no NITTO wa imouto ni.
SAKANA no ESA wa ichi-nichi ni-kai desu.

Lyrics from
Today, I will be leaving this town.
The book I borrowed is on the desk.
The orange knit is for my little sister.
The fish need to be fed twice a day.

Lyrics from
hitori de katte ni kimete gomennasai
dakedo kinou demo ashita demo nakute
kyou wa sono toki datta

Lyrics from
I'm sorry for selfishly deciding all this on my own
but today was the time to leave,
not yesterday, and not tomorrow

Lyrics from
daisuki na hito ni kakomarete aisarete kita
kakegae no nai    futatsu to nai kono machi wo
watashi wa kyou dete ikimasu [1]

Lyrics from
Here, I've always been surrounded by wonderful people who've loved me
There will no replacement for and no equivalent of this town which
I will be leaving today

Lyrics from
kyoukai ni kane ga naru mae ni    mou ikanakucha
minna genki de.

Lyrics from
I've got to go before the church bells ring
Take care, everyone.

Lyrics from
san-gatsu jyuu-roku nichi    SAUSU UISHUBOUN san-ban chi

Lyrics from
March 16    No. 3, South Wishbone

[1]: Though the lyrics booklet says "ikimasu", maaya sings "yukimasu" instead. It lends a little more weight to the word (which means 'to go') as it is an older form of it.

Thanks go out to Barret-sensei and roxfan for their help on the translation
