8月5日土曜日 空に雲は無く
ビルの最上階から 気付けば別れを告げて
8月3日木曜日 僕の心に傷が
6度目の傷 ズタズタになり全て壊れてしまえ 全て

出会って初めて気付いた 自分の愚かさを
人を信じられないまま 人を傷付けていると
何故また僕は君の事を 懲りずに愛するの
こうして僕は愛する事を 忘れられない様だ
信じる事が辛く 気付かれない様に
独りで泣いていた 君に分からぬ様

これ以上 これ以上は 傷付きたくない

忘れようとした時もあるけど 今は抱き締めたい

信じる事が辛く 君の過去を知った
忘れられないのは 君の方なのに

これ以上 これ以上は 傷付きたくない
でも君だけを 力強く抱きしめられない

8月5日 晴れた雲の無い空の中で
もう最後だね 地面に広がる自分を見つめ

August 5th Saturday, Not a cloud in the sky
From the top floor of the building,
when I came to, I was bidding farewell
August 3rd Thursday, The wounds to my heart, the sixth wound,
I'm torn to shreds, I'll be completely destroyed, everything.

When we met I first noticed how foolish I was
and how i hurt others by never having faith in them
Why do I love you tirelessly again
it seems I can't forget loving you this way.
Believing is painful, I was crying by myself
without being noticed by you, as if you didn't know…

I don't wanna hurt anymore than this
but right now, I wanted to love only you.

There were times I tried to forget you,
but now I want to hold you.

believing is painful, I knew your past,
even though you were the one who couldn't forget.

I don't wanna be hurt more than this
but its only you, I can't hold tightly.

August 5th, in the clear and cloudless sky,
this is it, as I watch myself spread over the ground.

"I hold you" "I watch you" "I love you" "I think of you"
