kanji & kana

    あと何日
    雨は降り続くのだろう?
    この命の意味を
    探すしかない

    びしょ濡れのままで
    見上げてる
    木々たちは
    何 思う?


    流した後は
    さっきより
    笑顔になれるんだ
    どんな暗い今日も
    やがて雨雲の中から
    希望の空

    もう限界
    光 差さずに腐りそう
    頑張っていた夢は
    報われるのか?

    全身で受けた
    悲しみ
    花たちは
    何 語る?

    雨に
    打たれた後は
    そう誰も
    もっと強くなれる
    挫けそうな時は
    風が変わるのを待つんだ
    もう少しだけ


    流した後は
    さっきより
    笑顔になれるんだ
    ここであきらめずに
    今の自分にできること
    風の向きが変われば
    雨も止んで晴れ渡る
    明日が来る

english translation

    How many more days will it keep raining, I wonder?
    I must search for the meaning of my life
    What must the trees think as I look
    up at them soaked to the skin?

    After I shed my tears,
    I can smile more than I did before
    No matter how dark today may be,
    a sky of hope will soon appear from behind the rain clouds

    Seems I've already hit my limits,
    useless and unable to give off any light
    Your dreams will be rewarded if you do your best, right?
    What must the flowers say
    of the sorrow that struck all my body?

    After they're beaten by the rain,
    everyone can become stronger in this way
    In times when they seem crushed,
    even the wind and rain clouds wait
    just a little longer

    After I shed my tears,
    I can smile more than I did before
    This is what I can do right now,
    right here, without giving up
    When the wind changes direction,
    the rain will stop too, the skies will clear,
    and tomorrow will come
