The day I leave this house I grew accustomed to living in has come
I’m still bewildered by setting off on this new trip
In the bus heading to the train station
I sent a message to my friend
In the morning at the platform I also tried calling
But something felt different
I brought one old guitar
And left all my pictures behind
I relinquish something and obtain something else.
I wonder, does this just repeat over and over?
My shows of courage always continue in my dreams
But when I become timid, they get broken there
I started to cry a little
in the train as it set off
I wished that the town that continued on
just outside the window will not change
The person that gave me this old guitar
said that Tokyo is a scary place
I have already given up on searching for answers
It’s okay if my life is full of mistakes
The red sunset was interrupted by the buildings
Even if I hold back my tears
Each time the next morning comes
There will be things that make us hesitate, right?
I can’t choose only the correct thing
I understand that much
