The Given

One day when my heart stops beating,
I might be smiling with all my might.
Weakened, with my grieving,
I can only bother you.

That is true
To compensate…
Now I know
I’ll sing with this voice.

When I was little, I just kept crying.
It’s hard when you need somebody.
I always made my mother and father sad.
Not a single thing went well.

God, please tell me
Tell me why
I have this life

I’m alive
I want to get to know you,
but I don’t understand;
guess I’ll look for you.
I’m alive
In despair, in anxiety,
if only I could live
snuggled up next to you…

Meeting you is the reason why
I’m going to live from now on.
Because I’m not really here,
there’s nothing that can scare me.

I’m alive
I want to get to know you,
but I don’t understand;
guess I’ll look for you.
I’m alive
In despair, in anxiety,
if only I could live
snuggled up next to you…

We won’t stop to carry on
So let us move on, move on
We won’t stop to carry on
So let us move on, move on

I really want to know that day.
Alone, I want to run away;
guess I’ll look for it.

I’m alive
Give me your sadness
Give me your hopelessness
So I can stay with you

God, please tell me,
Tell me why
For now and forever.

I still want to believe that
this feeling is going to reach someone.
I’ll take a breath.
You’re going to laugh on my voice,
we’ll grab happiness,
if only you stay…

We won’t stop, we must go on
Carry on, carry on
Nothing can keep us from moving on
I’ll be gone, you’ll carry on
You’ll never be alone anytime
Look up the sky ’cause I’m with you
Remember me when the given will make you so
Make you so

We won’t stop to carry on
So let us move on, move on
We won’t stop to carry on
So let us move on, move on

The Given

いつか鼓動が止まる頃に
思い切り笑顔でいれたら
弱ったり嘆いたりしてあなたを
困らせてばかりの僕には

That is true
償うように
Now I know
この声で僕は歌うよ

泣いてばかりいた小さい頃
誰かといると苦しくって
母や父をいつも悲しませた
何一つうまくいかないな

神様 教えて欲しい
Tell me why
この命は

I’m alive
あなたを知りたくて
でもわからなくって
探してるんだろう
I’m alive
絶望と不安で
あなたに寄り添って
生きていけるなら…

あなたと出会ったことが僕の
これから生きる理由になって
本当はここにはいないんだから
何も怖いものなんてないな

I’m alive
あなたを知りたくて
でもわからなくって
探してるんだろう
I’m alive
絶望と不安で
あなたに寄り添って
生きていけるなら…

We won’t stop to carry on
So let us move on move on

本当はあの日を知りたくて
一人逃げ出したくて
探してるんだろう

I’m alive
Give me your sadness
Give me your hopelessness
So I can stay with you

神様 教えて欲しい
Tell me why
これからもずっと

この想いが誰かに届くって
今も信じてたくて
息を吸うんだろう
あなたが僕の声で笑って
幸せを掴んで
居てくれるなら…

We won’t stop, we must go on
Carry on, carry on
Nothing can keep us from moving on
I’ll be gone, you’ll carry on
You’ll never be alone anytime
Look up the sky ’cause I’m with you
Remember me when the given will make you so
