Nemuri
words by Sakai Izumi

Japanese

Sabishisa ni tatakau yoru niwa
Dare ka no koe ga kikitakute...
Techo wo mitemo
Dare nimo denwa suru tokoro ga nai shi
Nantonaku TEREBI wo tsuketemo
Munashii kimochi ga hirogatte
Dareka ni tatta hitori de ii kara
Itsumo ki ni kakete ite hoshii

Sonna yoru wa ofuro ni hiza wo kakaete hairi
Iroiro na koto wo
Kodomo no toki no koto ya gakusei jidai no koto

Soshite mukashi suki datta
Ano hito no koto wo omoidasu
Sou shite iru uchi ni nemuri ga
Yasashiku watashi wo sasou

Nee tomodachi ni uragirareta koto-tte nai?
Dosoku de kokoro ni fumikonda koto
Kitto kizuitenai

Dakara mukashi suki datta
Ano hito no koto wo omoidasu
Sou shite iru uchi ni nemuri ga
Yasashiku watashi wo sasou

Nemureru koto ga ureshii
Toki ga tooku de kikoeru

English

On this night when I battle the loneliness
I want to hear the sound of someone's voice...
But when I look in my phone book
There's no one to call
Even though somehow I turn the TV on
The helpless feeling just grows
Even if it's only one person
I wish someone would always worry over me

On such a night, hugging my knees I step into the bath
And remember about all sorts of things
Like when I was a child, and my time in school

And then, I remember that person
Who I loved so long ago
And while I do that
Sleep gently beckons to me

Say, you've never been betrayed by a friend?
You've probably never noticed
When you walked into someone's heart with your shoes on

That's why I remember that person
Who I loved so long ago
And while I do that
Sleep gently beckons to me

I'm glad I can get to sleep
I can hear the clock in the distance
