Things like love and things like hate
are not easy to communicate
but on this day, once a year, over and over, for eternity,
they are close to you.
That innocent smile, those unchanging gestures, each and every one are my treasured things.
You are smiling, and you are living
With just that, I am happy and filled with warmth
I become kinder.
My future is illuminated.
My mother gave me warmth wrapped in compassion
And that has kept me always walking onward
And the kindness of many friends, kept in my heart.
We fought jokingly, and shared our joy.
Uncountable amount of memories
From this day on, let's create more of them
If one day, for example,
We are born in this world again*.
Then let's meet again in the same way.
There are barriers we have to overcome
But no matter what happens
I'll be right next to you
Say if my wish could come true...
Would someone please cast magic on you so that
No tears of saddness would ever have to fall down your face
I'll live on together with you
With a beautiful smile and my head held high
I'll hold your hand, and we'll walk side by side
Such a future awaits us
Thank you for today
*In the kanji lyrics, it says "kono sekai de" which means "in this world". In the song, however, Akanishi seems to say "chigau sekai de", which would mean "in a different world". So, I'm assuming this means something along the lines of "in this world, but at a different time", though, I really have no idea...
