A song for xx

どうして泣いているの
どうして迷ってるの
どうして立ち止まるの
ねえ教えて
いつから大人になる
いつまで子供でいいの
どこから走ってきて
ねえどこまで走るの

居場所がなかった 見つからなかった
未來には期待出來るのか分からずに

いつも強い子だねって言われ續けてた
泣かないで偉いねって褒められたりしていたよ
そんな言葉ひとつも望んでなかった
だから解らないフリをしていた

どうして笑ってるの
どうしてそばにいるの
どうして離れてくの
ねえ教えて
いつから強くなった
いつから弱さ感じた
いつまで待っていれば
解り合える日が來る

もう陽が昇るね そろそろ行かなきゃ
いつまでも同じ所には いられない

人を信じる事って いつか裏切られ
はねつけられる事と同じと思っていたよ
あの頃そんな力どこにもなかった
きっと 色んなこと知り過ぎてた

いつも強い子だねって言われ續けてた
泣かないで偉いねって褒められたりしていたよ
そんな風に周りが言えば言う程に
笑うことさえ苦痛になってた

一人きりで生まれて 一人きりで生きて行く
きっとそんな每日が當り前と思ってた

 

Trying to translate this song, with some parts not so certain 😛

Why are you crying?
Why are you lost?
Why did you stop?
Hey, please tell me
When will I become an adult?
How long can I stay a child?
Where have I come running from?
Where am I running to?
I had no place to stay. I couldn’t find one.
I don’t know if I could have any hope for the future.

They have always said I am a strong child.
They praised me saying “you must be strong to not cry.”
I didn’t want those words at all.
So I pretended not to understand.

Why are you laughing?
Why are you by my side?
Why are you leaving me?
Please tell me.
When did you become strong?
Since when have you felt weakness?
How long must you wait
for the day that we will understand each other?

The sun is rising. I must go soon.
I can’t stay at the same place forever.

Trusting people means you will be betrayed someday.
I thought it was the same as being rejected.
At the time I didn’t have that kind of strength.
I definitely knew too much.

They have always said I am a strong child.
They praised me saying “you must be strong to not cry.”

The more people say things like that
The more even laughing becomes painful.I was born alone. I’ll go on living alone.
I thought that surely that kind of life is appropriate.
