あと少しだけ (Ato sukoshi dake) – Just a little more



from Ai ai ai single.

——

Not knowing how to make friends
I was at a loss
The first page of memories
Was a slightly blue Lonely Days
Plucking up all the courage I had
I did my best to start a conversation
And easily, the second page opened up

Crying, laughing
Chatting till dawn broke
If only time could stop like this
I prayed that day

I’ll stay beside you just a little more
Until those tears fall and disappear
You are more wonderful than you think
Come, take a step forward, another step forward
Look, there’s tomorrow

Even when I spent time alone in my room
I didn’t feel lonely
Once tomorrow morning comes
I’ll Say hello, just like usual
I never thought about the day
When we would say goodbye
These usual days make me comfortable

It approaches, the day the last bell would ring
Slowly, slowly
It won’t stop, we can’t go back
So let’s smile more

Let me hear your voice just a little more
Let’s talk about stuff, like dreams and love
Whenever you feel like crying, just come over
Look up at this starry sky
It stretches out everywhere

How many times do you smile as you look up at the sky?
Surely countless times in Daily Life
But someday, every single one of your smiles
Will become your strength

Just a little more, just a little more
I’ll stay beside you, be right here
Real dreams, real love too
You’ll surely make them come true
Come, lift your head up

I’ll stay beside you just a little more
Until those tears fall and disappear
You are more wonderful than you think
Come, take a step forward, another step forward
Look, there’s tomorrow

Tomodachi no tsukurikata nante
Wakaranakute tohou ni kureta
Omoide no ichi peeji me wa
Sukoshi buruu na Lonely Days
Arittake no yuuki wo dashite
Omoi kitte hanashi kaketara
Kantan ni ni peeji me ga hiraitanda

Naitari warattari
Asa ga kuru made katari attari
Kono mama jikan ga tomareba ii no ni
Ano hi negatta

Ato sukoshi dake soba ni iru kara
Sono namida ga kobore ochite kieru made
Kimi ga omou ijou ni kimi wa suteki nanda yo
Saa ippo mae ni mou ippo mae ni
Hora soko ni ashita ga aru yo

Heya ni hitori kiri no jikan mo
Samishiku nante nakatta yo
Ashita no asa ga kureba mou
Itsumo doori ni Say hello
Sayonara tte iu hi ga kuru to
Kangaeta koto mo nakatta yo
Atarimae no hibi ga kokochi yokute

Chikazuku saigo no kane ga naru hi ga
Jiwari jiwari
Tomarenai modorenai
Dakara motto egao ni narou

Ato sukoshi dake koe wo kikasete
Ironna koto hanasou yo yume mo koi mo
Nakitaku nattara itsudemo oide
Mi agete mite kono hoshizora wa
Dokomademo tsunagatterunda yo

Kimi wa nankai sora mi ageru hodo waratta no?
Kitto kazoe kirenai kurai no Daily Life
Demo itsuka sono hitotsu hitotsu no egao ga
Kimi no chikara ni naru

Ato sukoshi dake ato sukoshi dake
Soba ni iru yo koko ni iru yo
Honki no yume mo honki no koi mo
Kimi nara kitto kanae rareru kara
Saa kao wo agete

Ato sukoshi dake soba ni iru kara
Sono namida ga kobore ochite kieru made
Kimi ga omou ijou ni kimi wa suteki nanda yo
Saa ippo mae ni mou ippo mae ni
Hora soko ni ashita ga aru yo

友達の作り方なんて
わからなくて途方に暮れた
思い出の一ページ目は
少しブルーなLonely Days
ありったけの勇気を出して
思い切って話しかけたら
簡単に二ページ目が開いたんだ

泣いたり 笑ったり
朝が来るまで語り合ったり
このまま時間が止まればいいのに
あの日願った

あと少しだけ そばにいるから
その涙がこぼれ落ちて消えるまで
君が思う以上に 君は素敵なんだよ
さあ一歩前に もう一歩前に
ほらそこに明日があるよ

部屋に一人きりの時間も
さみしくなんてなかったよ
明日の朝が来ればもう
いつも通りに Say hello
サヨナラって言う日が来ると
考えたこともなかったよ
当たり前の日々が心地よくて

近づく 最後の鐘が鳴る日が
じわりじわり
止まれない 戻れない
だからもっと笑顔になろう

あと少しだけ 声を聞かせて
色んな事 話そうよ 夢も恋も
泣きたくなったら いつでもおいで
見上げてみて この星空は
どこまでも繋がってるんだよ

君は何回 空見上げるほど笑ったの?
きっと数え切れないくらいの Daily Life
でもいつか その一つ一つの笑顔が
君の力になる

あと少しだけ あと少しだけ
そばにいるよ ここにいるよ
本気の夢も 本気の恋も
君ならきっと 叶えられるから
さあ顔を上げて

あと少しだけ そばにいるから
その涙がこぼれ落ちて消えるまで
君が思う以上に 君は素敵なんだよ
さあ一歩前に もう一歩前に
ほらそこに明日があるよ
