I don’t actually know if these English lyrics are correct, they’re just hard-to-find translated lyrics that I wanted to keep somewhere stable to point to. If I ever finish learning Japanese, I’m translating so many things.

Songs:
Arigatou (Megumi Nakajima) [Tamayura More Aggressive ED1]

Okaerinasai (Maaya Sakamoto) [Tamayura Hititose OP1]

Arigatou

Kanashii toka samishii toka
Kokoro no soko kara ureshii toka
Kimi no kanjiru subete mimamoritai

Osanai koro kara makenki de
Sukoshi no ame nara aruite yuketa
Namida mo misezu ni daiji na nanika gyutto
Kakae nagara

Taisetsu na hito to deai
Waratte mayotte kizutsuite
Moshimo kokoro ga imanimo
Koware sou nara
Soba ni iru yo

Itsu demo itsu demo itsu demo

Umareta toki
Kimi wa inochi
Tsuyoku nigirishime sakende ita
Sono toki kara ai ga tsunagatta

Itami wo koraete warau koto
Dareka wo kidzukau koto wo oboete
Chiisana nooto ni namida wo otoshita hi no
Kumorizora to

Otona ni natteku kimi wo
Fushigi na kimochi de mite ita’n da
Moshimo kokoro ga imanimo
Koware sou nara
Koko ni iru yo

Furikaereba itsu demo
Yasashii me wo shita
Anata ga ita

Atataka na hizashi no you na
Ai no naka ni
Tsutsumarete ita

Arigatou arigatou arigatou
Arigatou…

Thank You

When you’re sad, when you’re lonely,
When you’re happy from the bottom of your heart,
I want to watch over you as you feel every emotion.

You’ve always been so resilient since you were young.
You could keep walking on, even through a little rain.
Never showing a single tear, holding your dearest treasure
Firmly in your hands.

You met someone you truly loved.
You smiled, hesitated, and were hurt.
If you feel like your heart is about to break,
Just remember I’ll always be
Right here by your side

Always, Always, Always

The moment you were born
You were full of life.
Very noisy and full of strength.
Connected by love at that moment.

You laugh to bear a painful experience,
As you remember someone who cared about you.
On days with cloudy skies you left your tears behind
In a small notebook.

It feels like a miracle
To see you grow and mature.
If you feel like your heart is about to break,
Just remember I’ll always be
Right here…

When I turn to look over my shoulder,
I see where that kindness
And affection came from.

As warm as rays of sunlight,
Was your love continually
Wrapped around me.

Thank you, thank you, thank you,
Thank you…

Okaerinasai

Natsu no nokori ame ni
Eki made hashittetta kimi no ushiro sugata
Hansode no seifuku awatete oikaketa
Matsuge ni mizudama hajikete

Sekaijuu no yasashii mono utsukushii iro wo shitteta
Demo sekai ha shiranakatta ano koro

Okaerinasai omoide ni
Nakitai toki aitai toki koko ni iru yo
Okaerinasai watashi-tachi ga
Yumemita mono aishita mono ima mo kimi wo mamotteru yo

Kami wo tokashinagara
Eiga no naka de mita ano ko no mane wo shita
Tsumetai mizu de kao wo arau to kanashimi ha
Zenbu nagareteitta

Sora no ue ni egaiteta subete ha
Ima me no mae ni oritekite
Omosa mo katachi mo tashika ni kanjiru

Okaerinasai omoide ni
Furimuku no ha kawaru koto mo yowasa janai
Okaerinasai wakatteru yo
Nani mo iwazu nani mo kikazu
Kimi wo sotto dakishimeyou

Okaerinasai omoide ni
Nakitai toki aitai toki soba ni iru yo
Okaerinasai kidzuiteite
Ikiru koto ha wasureru koto
Ima ga itsumo ichiban kagayaiteru

Welcome Home

In the left over summer rain
I see your back as it ran to the station.
I hurriedly chased after your half sleeved uniform
And drops of water jumped into my eye lashes.

Every gentle thing in this world, every beautiful color of this world,
I came to know them all, but back then I didn’t know about the world.

Welcome home, back to your memories.
When you want to cry, when you want to see me, I’ll be here for you.
Welcome home, the dreams we saw,
The things we loved, they are all now watching over you.

As I let my hair down,
I acted like the girl I once saw in a movie.
As I wash my face in cold water, all sadness
Got washed away.

Everything I drew in the sky
All came flying down before my eyes…
I certainly felt their weight and shape.

Welcome home, back to your memories.
Looking back, and changing, are not weaknesses.
Welcome home, I understand,
You don’t have to say a word, I won’t ask a thing…
I’ll simply gently embrace you.

Welcome home, back to your memories.
When you want to cry, when you want to see me, I’ll be by your side.
Welcome home, come to understand
That living is about forgetting,
And that the present is what always shines the brightest.
