Romaji

Naname ue wo miageru kono hitomi no oku no omoi wo
Anata ni misugosare kitai wa uragiri
Daremo inai chirakatta heya de hiza wo dakishimete
Kodoku mo itami mo ima wa zenbu onaji

Ienai yo... Nakenai yo...
Tsuyogaru imi nante wakaranai kedo
Nakisakebu yuuki ga hoshii
Anata no mae de machi no naka de...

Tell me why? Nee doushite
Konna hazu ja nai yo
Ira ira mo gaman mo otona ni narenai
Everyday kizutsuite
Everynight hitori naite
Demo kodomo mitaku sunao ni narenai

'Don't touch me!' Kono me ga sou itteru mitai
Suruu sareru kokoro ga umaku tsutawaranai
'Owaranai kanashimi wa nai' nara
Keitai hanasanai de machi tsudzukeru yo call
Wa no naka ni ita sakki made no watashi wa sawai deta
Ima wa gomakasenai hodo no kodoku to tatakatteru
I can't tell kore ga watashi...

Takusan wo motomete wa nai
Misekake no yasashisa mo iranai
Anata wo tayottemo ii no? Question 1
Namida me de aruku watashi wo surechigau hito ga warau
Nee soretomo ima anata dake ni... Question 2

Shoujiki mou tsukareta yo...
Butsukaru kousaten tachi tomarenai
Kaeritai kaerenai
'Hitori de itai' ga mada kuchiguse?

Tell me why? Nee doushite
Konna hazu ja nai yo
Ira ira mo gaman mo otona ni narenai
Everyday kizutsuite
Everynight hitori naite
Demo kodomo mitaku sunao ni narenai

Nee doushite...
(Omoi doori ni ika nakute dakedo wagamama ienakute)
Gimon darake...
(Hanpa na tsuyosa to anbaransu na kokoro ga scream)
Nee oshiete...
(Sono smile ura ni nani ga kakusareteru?)
Utagatte shimau kara...

Shinjitai jibun igai no sonzai
Demo kizutsuku no ga kowai kore ja ibasho wa nai
Hontou mo uso mo wakari sugite tsumaranai
Tama ni kowashi taku naru be-ru
Tsuyoi furi shite itsumo otonabutte
Namai kitte iwarete mata niramitsukete
Tired of it! Soro soro genkai
Nee naitemo ii? Sou kiku mae ni...

Komi ageru kanjou wa
Otona rashiku osaerarenai kedo
Anata no me no mae de wa
Kodomo mitai ni wa nakenai kedo

Don't tell me! Te wo hanashite!
Yasashii furi shite...
Tachi satteku senaka wo sou nagameteta
Everyday kizutsuite
Everynight hitori naite
Anata no me ni utsuru jibun ga kirai

Nee doushite...
(Omoi doori ni ika nakute dakedo wagamama ienakute)
Gimon darake...
(Hanpa na tsuyosa to anbaransu na kokoro ga scream)
Nee oshiete...
(Sono smile ura ni nani ga kakusareteru?)
Utagatte shimau kara...

English

I look up and to the side
But you don't see the love in my eyes, dashing my hopes
No one is here in this cluttered room, I hug my knees
Loneliness and pain - it's all the same now

I can’t say it… I can’t cry…
Though I don’t see the point of putting on a brave face
I want the courage to cry and scream
In front of you, in the middle of the street…

Tell me why? Hey, why?
It wasn’t supposed to be like this
I can't deal with annoyance and put up with crap like an adult
Every day, I get hurt
Every night, I cry alone
But I can't say how I feel the way a child does

‘Don’t touch me!’ That’s what these eyes seem to be saying
I can't make my feelings clear when you're ignoring them
"There's no sadness that won't end"
If that's true, I won't put down my cellphone, I'll keep waiting for your call
I was in the loop and excited
But now I'm fighting a loneliness I can no longer hide
I can’t tell, this is me…

I’m not asking for a lot
I don’t need fake kindness
Can I rely on you? Question 1
People laugh at me as I walk by with tears in my eyes
Hey, or is that just you…Question 2

Honestly, I’m tired of this...
I can't stop at this intersection I've run up against
I want to go back but I can’t go back
'I want to be alone' - is that still your favorite thing to say?

Tell me why? Hey, why?
It wasn’t supposed to be like this
I can't deal with annoyance and put up with crap like an adult
Every day, I get hurt
Every night, I cry alone
But I can't say how I feel the way a child does

Hey, why?
(Things aren’t going right, but I can’t say anything selfish)
I’m filled with doubt…
(I’m at half strength and my unbalanced heart is screaming)
Hey, tell me…
(What’s hidden behind that smile?)
It makes me suspicious…

I want to believe in an existence other than myself
But I’m afraid I’ll get hurt, this isn’t my place
I know the truth and lies so well that it bores me
Sometimes I want to break this veil
I always act mature, pretending to be strong
Then you call me a smart-ass and I glare again
Tired of it! I’m at my limit
Hey, can I cry? Before I can ask that…

My feelings well up
I can’t hold them back like an adult
But I can’t cry in front of you
Like a child either

Don’t tell me! Let go of my hand!
Pretend to be kind…
I watched your back as you walked away
Every day, I get hurt
Every night, I cry alone
I hate the me that you see

Hey, why?
(Things aren’t going right, but I can’t say anything selfish)
I’m filled with doubt…
(I’m at half strength and my unbalanced heart is screaming)
Hey, tell me…
(What’s hidden behind that smile?)
It makes me suspicious…
