HOW MERRY MARRY, Natsume Yuujinchou San OP

Overcoming my disinclination to do TV-size translations because it’s Natsume. <3 Not one the best themes we’ve heard from the series, in my opinion, but it’s still nice.

EDIT 10/05/11: Updated to full version.

What I Can Do
Lyrics: Takeuchi Shuu, Kudou Keiichi
Composition: Kudou Keiichi
Arrangement: Matsuoka Motoki, Itou Takahiro, HOW MERRY MARRY
Performance: HOW MERRY MARRY

When I let out a sigh in these days without an answer,
I’ve already lost sight of my true self.
Even when I listen carefully, I can’t hear your voice.
I chase after it, and today, I continue to walk on.

My feelings that were left unsaid will pass some time in a chrysalis.
They’ll spread their wings, and before long, they will take flight.

I won’t forget the one important thing, the one thing.
My feelings of today will reach, somehow, someday.
Even if it’s little by little, I’d like to try telling you
What my insignificant self can do.

Tired out from walking, I stood still at the crossroads.
A flower with a nostalgic scent was there in bloom.
So that my countless bitter feelings don’t spill out of me,
I put it in my pocket and continue my journey.

I’ve made countless detours and visits, but I’ve almost arrived
At the place where the future and the past meet.

What I was searching for, what I lost, one thing, two things;
Passing each other by namelessly, one person, two people…
I’m sure it’s just that they haven’t noticed yet.
Where is the light that will illuminate the answer?

I won’t forget the one important thing, the one thing.
Maybe my feelings of today will reach, somehow, someday.
Even if it’s little by little, I’d like to tell you
What my insignificant self can do.

There are no wishes that won’t come true, I’m sure.
Those emotions have arrived, strongly, deeply.
This is what I can do just for now.
I’d like to continue for a little more.

Boku ni Dekiru Koto
Lyrics: Takeuchi Shuu, Kudou Keiichi
Composition: Kudou Keiichi
Arrangement: Matsuoka Motoki, Itou Takahiro, HOW MERRY MARRY

Kotae no nai hibi ni   tameiki morasu tabi
Hontou no boku wa mou mienaku nacchatta
Mimi wo sumashite mo   kikoenai kimi no koe
Oikakete kyou mo arukitsudzukeru

Tsutaerarezu ni ita omoi wa toki wo hete   sanagi ni natte
Hane hiroge yagate tobitatsu

Wasurenai  taisetsu na  hitotsu  hitotsu
Todoku kana  kyou no omoi  douka  itsuka
Chippoke na kono boku ni dekiru koto
Sukoshi zutsu demo tsutaete mitai nda

Arukitsukarete  tachidomatta juujirou
Natsukashii nioi no suru hana ga saite ita
Ikutsuka no nigai omoi  koborete shimawanu you
Poketto ni tsumekonde tabi wa tsudzuku

Mawarimichi  yorimichi  nando mo shichatta kedo  mou sugu tadoritsuku
Mirai to kako ga deau basho e

Sagashiteta  nakushiteta  hitotsu  futatsu
Surechigau  namae naki  hitori  futari
Kitto mada  kidzukanai koto bakari
Kotae wo terasu  hikari wa doko ni aru?

Wasurenai  taisetsu na  hitotsu
Todoku ka na  kono omoi  douka  itsuka
Chippoke na kono boku ni dekiru koto
Sukoshi zutsu demo tsutaetai

Kanawanai  negai nado  nai sa  kitto
Todoita yo  sono omoi  tsuyoku  fukaku
Tatta ima  kono boku ni dekiru koto
Ato mou sukoshi tsudzukete mitai nda

僕にできること
作詞:竹内修、工藤圭一
作曲:工藤圭一
編曲:松岡モトキ、伊藤隆博、HOW MERRY MARRY

答えのない日々に 溜息漏らす度
本当の僕はもう見えなくなっちゃった
耳を澄ましても 聞こえない君の声
追いかけて今日も歩き続ける

伝えられずにいた想いは時を経て 蛹になって
羽広げやがて飛立つ

忘れない 大切な ひとつ ひとつ
届くかな 今日の想い どうか いつか
ちっぽけなこの僕にできること
少しずつでも伝えてみたいんだ

歩き疲れて 立ち止まった十字路
懐かしい匂いのする花が咲いていた
いくつかの苦い想い こぼれてしまわぬよう
ポケットに詰め込んで 旅は続く

回り道 寄り道 何度もしちゃったけど もうすぐ辿り着く
未来と過去が出会う場所へ

探してた なくしてた ひとつ ふたつ
すれ違う 名前なき ひとり ふたり
きっとまだ 気づかないことばかり
答えを照らす 光はどこにある?

忘れない 大切な ひとつ
届くかな この想い どうか いつか
ちっぽけなこの僕にできること
少しずつでも伝えたい

かなわない 願いなど ないさ きっと
届いたよ その想い 強く 深く
たった今 この僕にできること
あともう少し続けてみたいんだ
