Pray Lyrics (by ear)

↓Read me ↓
Spoiler:
My roommate typed these out for himself, and I stole them and will be taking all the credit. I kid. Anyway, these are all by ear. So the final kanji as well as words in general could be different haha.

And also...
I could put these all into romaji, but I need to go to sleep. So if any of you would like to take that on, be my guest.



ayumi hamasaki

Pray

会いたいのは今でも
君の事愛してるから
でももう二度と会えないのは
誰よりも愛しているから

ねえ今はまだきっと解っては
もらえない事ばかりかもしれない
だけどね祈ってるよ

君だけの君のための幸せが
どこかで君を待っているから
怖がらないでその手隠さないで

君だけの君のための幸せに
出会えたその時には
もうちょっとあとちょっと
もうあとちょっと少しだけ
手を伸ばしてみて

あれからどれほど月日は
流れたんだろう
思うよりも短いから
思うよりずっと長いから

ねえ風の便りに君がやっと探し物
見つけて微笑んでくれていると聞いたよ

だってひとつもし願いが叶うのなら
僕らが共にあった日々の事を
一度だけでいい いつか思い出して

君がもしこのわがままな
ah- 願いを許してくれるなら
そのあとでそのあとで
その心から永遠に消してしまっていい

僕が次に生まれ変わった時には君を
迎えに行くなんて勝手な約束すぎるかな

君だけの君のための幸せが
どこかで君を待っているから
怖がらないでその手隠さないで

君だけの君のための幸せに
出会えたその時には
もうちょっとあとちょっと
もうあとちょっと少しだけ
手を伸ばしてみて

会いたいのは今でも
君の事愛してるから
でももう二度と会えないのは
誰よりも愛しているから

thank you for providing kanji!
Here's the romaji to simplify your work. I'd love to provide the translation (lyrics are so so beautiful) but I don't have the time right now. I'll do it when I can if nobody precedes me

Thanks!

I've translated the lyrics~
Spoiler:
*The reason why I want to see you, even now,
Is because I love you
But the reason why I can never ever see you again
Is because I love you more than anyone

You might not yet understand
All the things I did
But I'm praying you will

**A piece of happiness that exists only for you
Is waiting for you somewhere
So please don't be afraid, don't hold back your hands

***When you've found the piece of happiness
That exists only for you
A little further, a little more
Just a little more, if only a millimeter
Try to reach out your hands

How many days have
Gone by since then?
Less than you think
So many more than you think

The wind told me you are smiling,
Having finally found what you were looking for

If only one wish of mine could come true
Someday please remember the days we spent together
Just once is enough

If you would grant me
This selfish wish of mine
I won't mind if you erase me from your heart forever
After that, after that

Is promising I'll go to you the next time I am reborn
Too selfish, I wonder

**repeat
***repeat
*repeat

Haha, tenshi, you're always so fast! Here's my translation:

Quote:
Originally Posted by Pray

You may not understand
the reason for the things I've done
But I'm praying that you will

Somewhere, there is happiness waiting
meant for you and only you
Don't be afraid, don't recoil your hand

When you find that happiness
meant for you and only you
Just a little, a little more,
a little bit more
reach out your hands

How much time has passed since then?
So much less than you think
And so much more than you think

I heard a rumor on the wind
That you finally found what you've been searching for
and are smiling happily

If I could have just one wish come true
I would want you to remember the days we spent together
Just once is fine

If you would grant me such a selfish wish
then after that, then after that
You can erase me from your heart for the rest of time

Is it too selfish of me to promise that I'll come to find you
the next time I'm reborn into this world?

Somewhere, there is happiness waiting
meant for you and only you
Don't be afraid, don't recoil your hand

When you find that happiness
meant for you and only you
Just a little, a little more,
a little bit more
reach out your hands

The reason I want to see you, even now
is because I love you
But we will never meet again
because I love you more than anyone else
This song is so, so beautiful. I'll have it on repeat until further notice.

The last stanza in particular is haunting~

Oh my.... THIS PART made me breathless-

"だってひとつもし願いが叶うのなら
僕らが共にあった日々の事を
一度だけでいい いつか思い出して

君がもしこのわがままな
ah- 願いを許してくれるなら
そのあとでそのあとで
その心から永遠に消してしまっていい"

Freaking perfection.
