Mou Sukoshi, Ato Sukoshi
words by Sakai Izumi

Japanese

Kimagure na kugatsu no ame ni
Shiroi kasa no shoujo ga surechigau
Sagashiteta futari no yukue
Ima wa mada shiritakunai
Anata no yurikago no naka sotto nemuritai
Kokoro ni himeta namida wasure

Mou sukoshi, ato sukoshi aisaretai
Ikenai koi to shittemo
Mou sukoshi anata no koto komarasetai
Kono ai tomerarenai

Omoide no Kobe no machi de
Anata e no tegami shitatamete imasu
Wasureyou to nando mo shita wa
Sono hou ga raku ni naru
Tsuishin: anata no umareta ie wo mite kimashita
Nandaka setsunakute natsukashikatta

Mou sukoshi, ato sukoshi soba ni itai
Kanawanu yume to shittemo
Sou sukoshi ano hito yori deau toki ga
Ososugita dake na no

Mou sukoshi, ato sukoshi aisaretai
Ikenai koi to shittemo
Mou sukoshi anata no koto komarasetai
Kono ai tomerarenai

English

In the fickle September rain
Little girls with white umbrellas pass by
I've searched for where our relationship went
But I still don't want to find out
I want to quietly sleep in your cradle
And forget the tears I've hidden in my heart

Just a bit more, just a bit longer I want to be loved
Even though I know it's a love that cannot be
Just a bit more, I want to be troubled by you
I can't stop this love

In the streets of Kobe that I remembered
I'm writing a letter to you
I've tried to forget you so many times
That way, I could be happy
P.S.: I went to see the house you were born in
It was kind of sad, and nostalgic

Just a bit more, just a bit longer, I want to be by you
Though I know it's an unreachable dream
Just a bit, more than her, our meeting
Was just a little too late

Just a bit more, just a bit longer I want to be loved
Even though I know it's a love that cannot be
Just a bit more, I want to be troubled by you
I can't stop this love
