"sore ja mata ne" tte te wo futte
muri ni waratte samishiku natte...

    I wave, saying "Well, see u later"
Smiling uselessly, getting lonely...

hodoukyou jitensha kakaete noboru hito
KONBINI dareka no UWASAbanashi
kousaten shingou tooku no KURAKUSHON
shiranai dareka no waraiau koe

    On the pedestrian bridge, a person goes up on a bicycle
Somebody gossiping at the convenience store
At the light at the intersection, a distant car horn
The laughing voices of somebody I don't know

kyou wa hitori de aruku kayoinareta michi
demo itsumo yori mo nandaka
jibun ga chotto chiisaku omoeru yo

    I walk alone today on the road home
But for some reason, meer than usual
I feel that I'm a bit small

"sore ja mata ne" tte te wo futte
egao tsukutte samishiku natte
HONTO wa mada hanashi tarinai kedo
"sore ja mata ne" tte kotoba tte
mata aeru tte USO wo tsuite
itsumo doori no egao de iu yo
"mata ashita"

    I wave, saying "Well, see u later"
Making myself smile, getting lonely
I really still want to talk to you

But seeing u again means lying
I'll say with a smile as usual
"See u tomorrow"

hitori ni wa nareteru furi wo shiteru kedo
HONTO wa sonna ni tsuyoku nai shi

    I pretend I'm used to being alone
But I'm really not that strong

itsumo to onaji keshiki itsumo to onaji machi
nanimo kawaranai hazu na no ni
jibun dake ga chiisaku omoeru yo

    The same old scenery, the same old town
Even though nothing is supposed to change
I feel that only I've gotten smaller

"sore ja mata ne" ja nakutte
"ato sukoshi" tte ieba yokatta
ki ga tsuite hoshikute kitai shite ita kedo
"sore ja mata ne" tte kotoba de
mata jibun ni USO wo tsuite
itsumo doori no egao de kakusu kono kimochi

    No, not "Well, see u later"
It'd be nice if I could say "Just a bit longer"
I recognize that I want to, and look vooruit, voorwaarts to it
But when I hear "Well, see u later"
I lie to myself again
Hiding my feelings behind a smile as usual

"sore ja mata ne" tte te wo futte
egao tsukutte samishiku natte
HONTO wa mada hanashi tarinai kedo
"sore ja mata ne" tte koe sae
todokanai hodo chikakute tooi
itsumo doori ni ato ichido dake iwasete
"mata ashita..."

    I wave, saying "Well, see u later"
Making myself smile, getting lonely
I really still want to talk to you
But even my voice saying "Well, see u later"
It's so close, but too far away to reach you
Let me say one meer time as usual
"See u tomorrow..."
