kanji & kana

    少しだけ大人になって
    僕にもわかったことを
    ノートに書き出してみようと思う
    "生きる"ってことは
    何か忘れて行くこと
    頭 パンクしないように
    過去を間引いてる

    恋に何回も破れ 落ち込み
    あんなつらかった
    息苦しさもいつのまにか消えた

    昨日までの記憶だけで
    手足 動かしても
    目の前のその壁は 乗り越えられないんだ
    同じように見えるけど
    今日は いつも新しい
    イイカゲンくらいが きっと ちょうどいいんだよ

    問題は 大事なことも忘れてしまうことさ
    秘密にしてたカブトムシの木とか…
    友達のために ずっと待った純粋さ
    今は想像の絵なんか上手く描けないよ

    もっとまじめにやろうと思って
    努力していたら
    誰も彼も ただの大人になった

    昨日までの記憶だけで
    チャレンジしてはみても
    今そこにある問いは 初めての難問だ
    できなくても当たり前
    明日はもっと難しい
    イイカゲンだったら きっと 楽に生きられる

    何もきっちりしなくていいんだ
    何が正しいか?
    やってみなけりゃわからないのさ すべて

    昨日までの記憶だけで
    手足 動かしても
    目の前のその壁は 乗り越えられないんだ
    同じように見えるけど
    今日は いつも新しい
    イイカゲンくらいが きっと ちょうどいいんだよ

english translation

    I want to try writing on a notebook
    What I've understood
    Now that I've become a little more adult
    "To live" means
    To forget something
    The past thins out
    So that our head doesn't burst

    I got worn out by love many times and I got depressed
    But even that painful oppression
    Disappeared before I realized

    Even if you take a move
    Based only on your memories until yesterday
    You won't be able to overcome the wall in front of you
    It always looks the same
    But "today" is always different
    I'm sure that being a bit irresponsible is just perfect

    The problem is that you end up forgetting even the important things
    Like the beetle tree that I kept secret...
    Or the innocence that made me wait for my friends all the time
    Now I can't draw it all well from memory

    If they think "Let's be more serious"
    and do all their efforts,
    Everyone becomes just an adult

    Even if you try taking on a challenge
    Based only on your memories until yesterday
    The problem that poses you there is your first difficult question
    It's obvious that you can't solve it
    Tomorrow will be even more difficult
    If you were irresponsible you could surely live more easily

    It's okay not to do everything on the dot
    What's right?
    You won't understand anything if you don't try doing it

    Even if you take a move
    Based only on your memories until yesterday
    You won't be able to overcome the wall in front of you
    It always looks the same
    But "today" is always different
    I'm sure that being a bit irresponsible is just perfect
