kanji & kana

    あの頃 誰より好きだった人
    今 普通に話せる私がいる
    目を合わせるだけで苦しかったのに
    久しぶりに会う友達のように懐かしい

    地元の雑貨屋
    店から出た時
    下の名前を呼ばれた
    ふいに自分が
    2年C組の教室にいる気がしたわ

    地味なネクタイ スーツに合わせてる
    あなたにちょっと戸惑った

    10年の月日が過ぎ去ったのね
    輝いた日々 忘れたわけじゃない
    心の片隅の甘い後悔と
    言いようのないときめきを ずっと覚えてる

    「結婚したんだ」
    言われなくたって
    薬指に気づいてた
    あなたにそっくりな
    子供の写真 リアクションに困った

    私だって しあわせでいるけど
    なぜだか悔しく思えたの

    あの頃 誰より好きだった人
    今 普通に話せる私がいる
    目を合わせるだけで苦しかったのに
    久しぶりに会う友達のように懐かしい

    どんなに月日が流れ去っても
    痛みのように愛を庇(かば)っている
    昔のことなのに強がってるのは
    きっと私は気づかずに想い続けてる

    何も変わっていないのね

english translation

    Back then I loved you more than anyone
    Now I can chat casually with you
    Though it used to hurt just to meet your eyes
    Since it's been so long, it's nostalgic like seeing an old friend

    At the shops in our hometown
    As I was leaving a store
    Someone called out my first name
    And suddenly I felt
    Like I was back in 2nd year class C

    Meeting with you in my plain suit and tie
    I was caught off guard

    It's been ten years since that time
    I'll never forget those shining days
    Nor this bittersweet regret in my heart
    And the feelings I never confessed

    “I got married”
    Even if you hadn't told me
    I noticed the ring on your finger
    I didn't know how to react
    To the pictures of children who look just like you

    I'm happy too nowadays
    But for some reason I felt vexed

    Back then I loved you more than anyone
    Now I can chat casually with you
    Though it used to hurt just to meet your eyes
    Since it's been so long, it's nostalgic like seeing an old friend

    No matter how the years pass
    I'll harbor this painful love
    I'm sure I'll keep this feeling without realizing it
    Pretending to be strong just like I did back then

    I guess nothing has changed
