kanji & kana

    走る長距離バス
    目指すニューヨークシティ
    窓の空の向こうに
    何が待っているだろう

    夢の踊り子が
    生まれた町を飛び出すように
    都会に 憧れた

    摩天楼までその手 伸ばして
    掴もうとしているものは
    ブロードウェイのステージのスポットライト
    どれだけの失望と涙を
    引き換えにするつもりか
    神様 彼女にご加護を...

    朝のターミナルは
    人の運の出し入れ
    背中 丸めて帰る
    未来 失った者

    夢を詰め込んだ
    トランクひとつ引きずりながら
    手を翳し見上げる

    摩天楼まで近すぎるから
    その高さがわからないよ
    届きそうで届かない 梯子を探して...
    真っ白なTシャツや心を
    嘘をついて汚さないで
    神様 彼女にご慈悲を...

    摩天楼までその手 伸ばして
    掴もうとしているものは
    ブロードウェイのステージのスポットライト
    どれだけの失望と涙を
    引き換えにするつもりか
    神様 彼女にご加護を...

english translation

    The long distance bus runs
    Its destination is New York City
    What is waiting for her
    Beyond the sky outside the window?

    She dreams of becoming a dancer
    And ran away from the city she was born in
    She longed for the metropolis

    What she is trying to grab
    When she reaches out her hand to the skyscrapers
    Is a spotlight on a Broadway stage
    How many disappointments and tears
    Is she planning to exchange for it?
    God, please protect her...

    The terminal in the morning
    Is a river of people swarming to and from
    There are those people who have lost their futures
    And go back bending forwards

    Dragging along one trunk
    Which she stuffed with her dreams
    She shades her eyes with a hand and looks up

    She's too close to the skyscraper
    So she can't figure out how tall they are
    They look like she can reach them, yet they're unreacheable and she's looking for a ladder...
    Don't soil with lies your white T-shirt
    And your heart
    God, please, have mercy of her...

    What she is trying to grab
    When she reaches out her hand to the skyscrapers
    Is a spotlight on a Broadway stage
    How many disappointments and tears
    Is she planning to exchange for it?
    God, please protect her...
