Wakatteita hazu - I Must Have Understood

sung by: Akemi Satou
translated by: Lekha Matsumori Rao


Tourisugiru koibito tachi no waraigoe
Mune o shimetsukeru
Ameagari no shuumatsu no gogo nano ni
Watashi hitori machi o aruku
Soba ni itai no ni

It passed me by, the sound of lovers' laughter
My chest tightens
After the rain on a weekend afternoon
I, alone, walk in town
I want to be by your side

Sonna koto wakatteita hazu
Suki ni nareba natta dake
Kuruhimu koto
Setsunai ne wakatteiru no ni
Omotteiru anata dake o
Konna ni aenai toki mo

I must have understood this
If I fell in love, the more I love,
The more pain I have
It's painful, I understand
I'm thinking only of you
Even when I can't see you

Donna toki mo issho ni ite hoshii nante
Omoccha ikenai to
Osaeteita watashi no kokoro no koe
Tomerarezu ni
Ima mo afuresou de kurushii no

I know that I can't wish you
To be with me all the time
I want to stop the voice of my heart
I can't stop it
Even now it overflows It's painful

*Watashi ni wa wakatteita hazu
Aishitatte hitorijime
Dekinai koto
Demo ima wa taisetsu na omoi
Watashi dake ga mieru honto
Shinjiteru aishitsuzukeru

I must have understood
That I couldn't
Keep you all to myself
But now it's an important feeling
The truth that only I could see,
Believing, continuing to love

*Repeat
