kanji & kana

    君のためにできることって何もないんだね
    失恋したことよりも そのことが悲しい
    この世界に僕がいる意味 なくなってしまった
    告白なんかしなければ そばにいられたのに…

    本屋さんの片隅で
    立ち読みするふりをして
    こっそり泣いていた

    やさしさが余ってる
    どう使えばいいかな
    まわりの人間だけじゃ
    この先
    使い切れないだろう
    愛しさは諦めても
    君のことは忘れない
    遠くから
    遠くから
    やさしくありたい

    好きな人を守りたいって ずっと思ってた
    それが僕ではなかった ただそれだけの夜
    友達ではできないことをしてあげたかった
    他の誰かがいるなら 僕は安心しよう

    何千冊の本より
    自分が経験をした
    事実に泣けて来る

    思い出が余ってる
    忘れるにはいっぱい
    時間と涙の川に
    少しくらいは
    流れるかな
    寂しさは紛れるけど
    君への愛 後を引く
    いつまでも
    いつまでも
    やさしくありたい

    やさしさが余ってる
    どう使えばいいかな
    まわりの人間だけじゃ
    この先
    使い切れないだろう
    愛しさは諦めても
    君のことは忘れない
    遠くから
    遠くから
    やさしくありたい

    これからも
    これからも
    やさしくありたい

english translation

    There's nothing I can really do for you
    That gets me down more than your rejection
    My reason for existing in this world has disappeared
    If I hadn't confessed, I would still be close to you...

    In a corner of the bookshop
    I pretended to be reading
    While I silently cried

    There is too much kindness left in me
    I wonder how I should use it
    The people around me alone
    Won't exhaust
    Its supply
    Even if I stopped loving
    I wouldn't be able to forget you
    From afar
    From afar
    I want to be kind

    I always felt I wanted to protect the one I love
    I was a different person that one night
    I wanted to give you something I couldn't as a friend
    But if you have someone else now I can rest easy

    I have learned more
    Than a thousand books could teach
    And the truth makes me weep

    There are too many memories left in me
    And too much to forget
    I wonder if the river of time and tears
    Will carry them away
    Bit by bit
    Though the loneliness will dissipate
    My love for you will linger
    Forever
    And always
    I want to be kind

    There is too much kindness left in me
    I wonder how I should use it
    The people around me alone
    Won't exhaust
    Its supply
    Even if I stopped loving
    I wouldn't be able to forget you
    From afar
    From afar
    I want to be kind

    From now on
    Unceasingly
    I want to be kind
