Romaji

Sukoshi dake otona ni natte
Boku ni mo wakatta koto wo
Nooto ni kakidashite miyou to omou
“Ikiru” tte koto wa
Nanka wasurete iku koto
Atama panku shinai you ni
Kako wo mabiiteru

Koi ni nankaimo yabure ochikomi
Anna tsurakatta
Ikigurushisa mo itsu no ma ni ka kieta

Kinou made no kioku dake de
Teashi ugokashitemo
Me no mae no sono kabe wa norikoerarenain da
Onaji you ni mieru kedo
Kyou wa itsumo atarashii
Iikagen kurai ga kitto choudo iin da yo

Mondai wa daiji na koto mo wasurete shimau koto sa
Himitsu ni shiteta kabutomushi no ki toka...
Tomodachi no tame ni zutto matta junsuisa
Ima wa souzou no e nanka umaku kakenai yo

Motto majime ni yarou to omotte
Doryoku shite itara
Daremo karemo tada no otona ni natta

Kinou made no kioku dake de
Charenji shite wa mitemo
Ima soko ni aru toi wa hajimete no nanmon da
Dekinakutemo atarimae
Asu wa motto muzukashii
Iikagen dattara kitto raku ni ikirareru

Nanimo kicchiri shinakute iin da
Nani ga tadashii ka?
Yatte minakerya wakaranai no sa subete

Kinou made no kioku dake de
Teashi ugokashitemo
Me no mae no sono kabe wa norikoerarenain da
Onaji you ni mieru kedo
Kyou wa itsumo atarashii
Iikagen kurai ga kitto choudo iin da yo

English

I think I’ll write down
All the things I’ve learnt
Now I’ve grown up a little
Living means
Forgetting some things
I’ll distance myself from the past
So my mind doesn’t get a puncture

I got my heart broken so many times and felt so down
It hurt so much I could barely breathe
But eventually I realised the pain had gone

If the only thing that motivates you
Is memories of yesterday
You won’t get over the wall in front of you
It may look like the same old stuff
But each day is always a new one
Slap-dash is probably the way to go

The problem is that we forget important things too
Like my secret tree of beetles...
I was so straightforward, waiting ages for my friends
Now I can’t really draw from my imagination anymore

By trying
To take things more seriously
We’ve all ended up as just another adult

If the only thing you bring to challenges
Is memories of yesterday, you’ll be out of luck
Because the problem in front of you is a tough one you’ve never encountered before
Of course you can’t do it
And it’ll be tougher still tomorrow
Being slap-dash will probably make life easier

You don’t need to do anything perfectly
What’s the right way?
You won’t know until you try – that goes for everything

If the only thing that motivates you
Is memories of yesterday
You won’t get over the wall in front of you
It may look like the same old stuff
But each day is always a new one
Slap-dash is probably the way to go
