‘Sore wa Chiisana Hikari no You na’, ED song of the Boku da ga Inai Machi anime by Sayuri.
Translated at ADZ Subs.
Performed by Sayuri
No one ever seemed to see you
Only I could see
From where you came, where you’d go
The tears that flowed, the joys you would know, all
Called to me
I always used to hope I would grow up
For only true grown-ups
Would know how to love, I once believed
Still seeing naively as though I were not deceived
I will fight to show
In this world you are not alone
For though you waken from the endless dark and
Held apart are we by a gulf
I will transpass it
Into the streets erasing all trace of our life
Came nights of still snowfall
Unbeknownst to all
I devoted to you in my heart
The part where I could hold you closest
Like the most indelible scar I possessed
Through the trials of this world you’ll be smiling once more
This world whose songs we will restore
While the song is parsed as having short lines here, if you give it a listen you will see that some of these lines in fact run onto one another as long unbroken lines. Thinking of the song in that way will help in better understanding the emotion in the song.
