Lyrics

TV Size

まだ解けきれずに残った
日陰の雪みたいな
想いを抱いて生きてる
ねぇ、僕はこの恋を
どんな言葉で閉じたらいいの? あなたの全てが
明日を失くして
永遠の中を彷徨っているよ
さよなら出来ずに
立ち止まったままの
僕と一緒に まだ解けない魔法のような
それとも呪いのような
重い荷物を抱えてる
ねぇ、僕はこの街で
どんな明日を探せばいいの?
あぁ〜 冷たい涙がそれ凍てついて
優しい振りして舞い落ちる頃に
離れた誰かと誰かがいた事
ただそれだけの話 あなたの全てが
形を失くしても
永遠に僕の中で生きてくよ
さよなら出来ずに
歩き出す僕と
ずっと一緒に

Mada toke kirezu ni nokotta
Hikage no yuki mitai na
Omoi o daite ikiteru
Ne~e, boku wa kono koi o
Donna kotoba de tojitara ī no

Anata no subete ga
Ashita o nakushite
Eien no naka o samayotte iru yo
Sayonara dekizu ni
Tachidomatta mama no
Boku to issho ni

Mada tokenai mahō no yōna
Soretomo noroi no yōna
Omoi nimotsu o kakaeteru
Ne~e, boku wa kono machi de
Donna ashita o sagaseba ī no
Ah...

Tsumetai namida ga sora de itetsuite
Yasashī furi shite mai ochiru koro ni
Hanareta dareka to darekaga ita koto
Tada soredake no hanashi

Anata no subete ga
Katachi o nakushite mo
Eien ni boku no naka de ikiteku yo
Sayonara dekizu ni
Aruki dasu boku to
Zutto issho ni

Just like
Snow that hasn't completely melted
In the shade
I continue on with these feelings inside me
Hey, with what words
Should I close the door on this love?

Your everything has lost its tomorrow
And now is wandering around eternally
Along with me
Who was unable to say goodbye or move on

Just like
A spell that still won't break
Or some kind of curse
I'm still holding on to some heavy baggage
Hey, what kind of tomorrow
Am I supposed to look for in this town?
Ah...

The cold tears that fall
Freeze under the sky
They pretend to be kind
And around the time, they fall down my face
Two people who were always together are torn apart
That's all there is to this story

Even if you everything loses its shape one day
You'll always be here within me
As I try to move forward again
Even though I couldn't say goodbye
You'll always be here with me.

Background story

The song started out as a vocal melody Mafuyu had invented. A year later, he meets Ritsuka, who is completely shaken once he heard Mafuyu sing it, asking him to be the vocalist for his band. Ritsuka composes a guitar riff for the track and now it was up to Mafuyu to complete the lyrics.

Mafuyu was dealing with his boyfriend’s suicide that’d happened last winter and he had been repressing his feelings for a year, stretching out the writing process to the very end. He wrote this song about him, talking about his inability to move on and how lost he felt since then.

But by the end of Mafuyu’s performance, he had some sort of closure, finally expressing his feelings out loud, singing at the end “Even though I couldn’t say goodbye, you’ll always be here with me”. Which was a breakthrough for him to move on from the past that he never could escape.
