The Promise

※後半に日本語訳あり

 

what do you want to make yourself do

when you don't recognize what you're caught up in

the town sucks your dreams and just throws them up

 

you were not supposed to only grow old

to be the happiest guy in that empty town

the sound of your heart is drown out by the voice of hell

 

you don't believe what I tell you

cause you're fine on your own

scared to notice your days are fading to shadow

can you know what I hope for you

no one cares about the pathetic state of the future

of who you are not

 

the reason you don't see you are just wasting your days

is that your lost glory has given up on you

just take a step out from there

I'll be there for you

but all I can say to you now is that

I'm sorry

 

 

what do you miss in everyday there

when you haven't found what you left and lost

the town gives you a make-believe life and world

 

what do you blame, what do you trust out there

can anything tell you what's worth chasing down

you've got blind, you've got deaf

and it seems that you don't care

 

the real you complicates yourself

is he worth couting on

or do you just bet on him

wishing he would help you out

but it all sounds sad to me

you've just had your heart torn apart by things that

you call faint regret

 

the reason you don't see you are just wasting your days

is that your lost glory has given up on you

just take a step out from there

I'll be there for you

but all I can say to you now is that

I'm sorry

 

 

what do you want to make yourself do

when you still don't recognize what you're caught up in

the town makes you hope with sorrow

are you still waiting or already missed what you'd waited for

 

you don't believe what I tell you

cause you're fine on your own

scared to notice your days are fading to shadow

can you know what I hope for you

no one cares about the pathetic state of the future

of who you are not

 

the reason you don't see you are just wasting your days

is that your lost glory has given up on you

just take a step out from there

I'll be there for you

but all I can say to you now is that

I'm sorry

 

どうしたいんだ?

お前は何に自分がとらわれているかもわかっていないのに

その町はお前の夢を吸いこんでただ吐きだすだけ

 

あの空虚な町で一番の幸せ者を演じるために

ただ歳をとっていくはずじゃなかっただろう

心の中の音は地獄の声でかき消されている

 

何を言っても信じないだろう

お前は一人で元気にやっている

毎日が影に消えていくんじゃないかと怯えながら

僕が願うことをわかってくれないか?

誰もお前の悲惨な未来なんて興味がない

本来の姿でさえ ないわけだし

 

ただ毎日を無駄にしていることに気付かないのは

過去の栄光がもうお前を見放してしまったから

そこから一歩踏み出したらどうだ 

そばにいるから

でも今俺が言えるのは 「残念だ」ということだけ

 

 

そこでの毎日で何が恋しい?

置いてきて失ったものを見つけられていない

その町は偽りの人生と世界を見せる

 

そこで何を責めて 何を信じる?

何も追いかける価値があるものを教えてくれないのか

目も見えず 耳も聞こえず

その上気にすることもないようだ

 

本当の自分なんてものがよけいに面倒にしている

そいつは信頼に値するのか?

それともただそいつに賭けているだけなのか

助け出してくれると願いながら

 

俺には何もかも悲しく聞こえる

お前はただ心を破られただけ

お前が微かな後悔と呼ぶものに

 

ただ毎日を無駄にしていることに気付かないのは

過去の栄光がもうお前を見放してしまったから

そこから一歩踏み出したらどうだ 

そばにいるから

でも今俺が言えるのは 「残念だ」ということだけ

 

 

どうしたいんだ?

お前は何に自分がとらわれているかもわかっていないのに

その町は希望を抱かせる 悲哀と共に

お前はまだ待っているのか?それとも待っていたものを

見過ごしてしまったのか

 

you don't believe what I tell you

cause you're fine on your own

scared to notice your days are fading to shadow

can you know what I hope for you

no one cares about the pathetic state of the future

 

of who you are not
