帰ってこいよ (Kaettekoiyo)

稲穂が揺れる田舎の風は 置いてきぼりの季節の舌打ちか溜め息
駅の待合室でうらぶれて 誰彼構わず憂鬱にする 憂鬱にする
どうせ出てくつもりなんだろ この町ではみんなそう
決意は揺るがないか 迷いなどはないか
故郷を捨てるつもりか 気に病むな、それでいい 振り向くな 立ち止まるな
 
花、そぞろ芽吹くとも、芽吹かざるとも
 
幼い頃に遊んだ校舎の壁が ひび割れた分僕らも傷ついた
ガードレール ゴールポスト 漁港のはしけ この町は何もかも錆び付いて
美しい思い出なんてあるものか 記憶の中じゃ泣いて挫けてばかり
この町が嫌いだとみんな言うが 早く出ていくんだと決まって言うが
 
帰ってこいよ 何か成し遂げるとも、成し遂げずとも
 
君のその愚直な心は 満員電車などに潰されたりはしないのだろうが
額に汗 将来 野望 人間関係 地下鉄の路線図みたいにこんがらがって
信頼出来る人が傍にいるならいい 愛する人ができたなら尚更いい
孤独が悪い訳じゃない ただ人は脆いものだから すがるものは多い方がいい
 
真っ黒な夜 真っ黒な夜でこそ思い出せ 
生まれた町を 今年も花が咲いたよ
 
遠くで鳴る境内の祭り囃子 君が居なくたって夏は過ぎるけど
知らせ無くとも今か今かと 待ち人の面影に振り返り
祭りの後、闇と静寂が落ちて 砂浜に花火と狂騒の残骸 
季節巡れど心は止まったまま 君が出てったあの時のまま
 
帰ってこいよ 何か成し遂げるとも、成し遂げずとも
 
菜の花畑の風車 コンビニも出来て 分校の校舎も建て替えられて
あれから大分経った この町も様変わりしたよ 
勤め先は相変わらずないから 若い奴らはみんな出ていった
昔よく遊んだあの公園も 今年取り壊されるってさ
 
夢を叶えたって胸を張ろうが やっぱ駄目だったって恥じらおうが
笑って会えるならそれでいい 偉くならなくたってそれでいい
ビルの谷間勇ましく歩く君が 陽に照らされた姿を想うのだ
忙しくしてんならしょうがないか 納得できるまで好きにしろ
 
帰ってこいよ 何か成し遂げるとも、成し遂げずとも

Rice stalks swaying, the countryside winds are either the tsking or sighs of the season of leaving people behind.
In a train station waiting room, I'm on the downswing. Without paying mind to anyone, I grow depressed. I grow depressed.
You mean to leave me anyway, don't you? Everyone in this town does too.
Is it that your resolve won't waiver, or that you have no hesitation?
Do you mean to abandon your hometown? Don't worry about it, it's fine as is. Don't turn back, don't stand still.
 
A flower, even if it blooms restlessly, even if it does not.
 
The cracked parts of the school's walls that we played at in our youths hurt us.
Guard rail, goal post, fishing harbor barge-- in this town anything and everything is rusted.
Are there any beautiful memories to be found here? My memories are all just of crying and being beaten down.
Everyone says that they hate this town, that they've all decided on hurrying up and getting out, but
 
come home. Even if there's something to finish, even if there isn't.
 
Your tactlessly frank heart probably won't be crushed in a rush hour train or such but
the sweat on your brow, the future, aspirations, and human relations, are tangled like the subway routes on a map.
If you have people by your side that you can trust, that's good. Even moreso if you find people you love.
It's not that solitude is bad, only that people are fragile. The more people you can rely on the better.
 
A pitch black night. Remember the town you were born in, because of the night's pitch blackness.
This year again, flowers bloomed.
 
The orchestra at the festival grounds resounds from far off. Even with you gone, summer will pass by but
I looking back to the vestiges of those waiting, waiting eagerly even without news.
After the festival, silence and darkness fall, the wreckage of fireworks and mania on the beach sands.
Seasons fly by, but my heart remains stopped. It has been, ever since the time you left.
 
Come home. Even if there's something to finish, even if there isn't.
 
The windmill in the bed of rape flowers. The convenience store is built, and the branch school building has been reconstructed too.
It's been quite a while since then, and this town too has changed completely.
Since they can't find work, same as always, the young ones have all up and left.
Even the park that we once used to play at a lot, they say is going to be demolished this year.
 
I wanted to be proud to say that my dream came true but I was ashamed to have said that I was giving up, but
if I can meet you laughing that'll be fine. Even if we haven't become great people, that'll be fine.
You who walks so gallantly in the gaps between buildings makes me think of your silhouette being illuminated by the sun.
If you're too busy then it can't be helped. Do as you like until you're satisfied.
 
Come home. Even if there's something to finish, even if there isn't.
 
Thanks!
