Singalong: No Farewell

Kanji, romaji, and – because I lured Aki out of hiding – translation for Barnaby’s new character song, No Farewell. Although I’m not very keen on the accompaniment choice for the song, this is one of my favourites on BEST OF HERO. Morita’s voice is perfect for ballads, and the lyrics are really lovely and touching. ♪(´ε` )

No Farewell

Lyrics: Kodama Saori

Kanji:

Shine、空の上で Feel、夢の中で
ああ、子供のまま変わらないなって  笑ってくれる

悲しみで塗り潰して  大切なことも
見失うのはもう  やめにするよ  wo-oh

愛された日々  かけがえない温もりで
今も僕は  守られている
歩いて行こう  怖れることはない
胸にずっと感じて  My Dears・・・

Please,安心して  ‘Cause、独りじゃない
そう、信じあえる仲間と一緒に  笑っているよ

この痛みは永遠に  消えなくていいさ
残された絆の  証だから  wo-oh

忘れはしない  優しさを抱きしめて
進む僕を  どうか見ていて
会えないけれど  サヨナラじゃないこと
涙はもう気づいているよ

愛された日々  かけがえない温もりで
今も僕は  守られている
歩いて行こう  怖れることはない
胸にずっと感じて  My Dears・・・

Romaji:

Shine, sora no ue de   Feel, yume no naka de
aa, kodomo no mama kawaranai na tte   waratte kureru

kanashimi de nuritsubushite   taisetsuna koto mo
miushinau no wa mou   yame ni suru yo   wo-oh

aisareta hibi   kakegaenai nukumori de
ima mo boku wa   mamorarete iru
aruite yukou   osoreru koto wa nai
mune ni zutto kanjite   My Dears…

Please, anshin shite   ‘Cause, hitori ja nai
sou, shinjiaeru nakama to isshoni   waratte iru yo

kono itami wa eien ni   kienakute ii sa
nokosareta kizuna no   akashi dakara   wo-oh

wasure wa shinai   yasashisa wo dakishimete
susumu boku wo   douka miteite
aenai keredo   sayonara ja nai koto
namida wa mou kizuite iru yo

aisareta hibi   kakegaenai nukumori de
ima mo boku wa   mamorarete iru
aruite yukou   osoreru koto wa nai
mune ni zutto kanjite   My Dears…

Translation:

While you shine in the skies high above
I can feel in my dreams
You laughing that I haven’t changed at all
since I was a child

I painted over my sadness and decided
not to lose sight of things that are important to me

Ah, those days when I felt loved!
But even now, I’m being protected
by this warmth that hasn’t really changed
My dear ones, I feel inside my chest
That I can walk ahead because there is nothing to be afraid of

So please, don’t worry anymore, because I’m not alone
Now I have a trusted friend I can laugh with together

I don’t care if this pain will never disappear
Because it’s a proof of the bond that is still there

I will never forget you, so please, watch over me from somewhere
While I go on, embracing this kindness close to my heart
We can’t meet anymore, but I’m not saying goodbye just yet
Though I already know there are tears rolling down my cheek

Ah, those days when I felt loved!
But even now, I’m being protected
by this warmth that hasn’t really changed
My dear ones, I feel inside my chest
That I can walk ahead because there is nothing to be afraid of

  1. …oh, that’s beautiful. So sweet and happy and sad. I think I’m just gonna go over here and cry a bit now.

    Thanks for posting this.

  2. This song is truly beautiful and sweet! Barnaby’s speaking with his parents and aunt in heaven, telling them that he’s going to be okay! Everytime I listen to this song, it makes me cry for a little while.
