Japanese Rōmaji Translation

8月5日土曜日 空に雲は無く
ビルの最上階から 気付けば別れを告げて
8月3日木曜日 俺の心に傷が
6度目の傷 ズタズタになり全て壊れてしまえ 全て

出会って初めて気付いた 自分の愚かさを
人を信じられないまま 人を傷付けていると
何故また俺は君の事を 懲りずに愛するの
こうして俺は愛する事を 忘れられない様だ
信じる事が辛く 気付かれない様に
独りで泣いていた 君に分からぬ様

これ以上 これ以上は 傷付きたくない

忘れようとした時もあるけど 今は抱き締めたい

信じる事が辛く 君の過去を知った
忘れられないのは 君の方なのに

これ以上 これ以上は 傷付きたくない
でも君だけを 力強く抱きしめられない

8月5日 晴れた雲の無い空の中で
もう最後だね 地面に広がる自分を見つめ


後悔なんてしていない 俺も俺の一つさ


Hachigatsu itsuka doyōbi Sora ni kumo wa naku
Biru no saijōkai kara Kizukeba wakare o tsugete
Hachigatsu mikka mokuyōbi Ore no kokoro ni kizu ga
Rokudome no kizu Zutazuta ni nari subete kowarete shimae Subete

Deatte hajimete kizuita Jibun no orokasa o
Hito o shinjirarenai mama Hito o kizutsukete iru to
Naze mata ore wa kimi no koto o Korizu ni ai suru no
Kōshite ore wa ai suru koto o Wasurerarenai yō da
Shinjiru koto ga tsuraku Kizukarenai yō ni
Hitori de naite ita Kimi ni wakaranu yō

Kore ijō Kore ijō wa Kizutsukitakunai
Demo ima dake wa kimi dake o aishiteita katta

Wasure yō to shita toki mo aru kedo Ima wa dakishimetai

Shinjiru koto ga tsuraku Kimi no kako o shitta
Wasurerarenai no wa Kimi no hō na no ni

Kore ijō Kore ijō wa Kizutsukitakunai
Demo kimi dake o Chikara tsuyoku dakishimerarenai

Hachigatsu itsuka Hareta kumo no nai sora no naka de
Mō saigo da ne Jimen ni hirogaru jibun o mitsume

"Kimi o daite""Kimi o mitsume""Kimi o aishi""Kimi o omou"

Kōkai nante shite inai Ore mo ore no hitotsu sa
Mijime ni kōkai o aisuru yori wa mashi daro?

"Kimi o nakushi"

August 5th, Saturday No clouds in the sky
From the building's top floor Before I realize it, I'm saying my farewells
August 3rd, Thursday The wound on my heart
Is my 6th wound It turns into shreds and everything breaks Everything

After we met I first became aware of my own foolishness
Being unable to trust others I hurt them
Why do I love you again without learning my lesson
It seems this way I cannot forget how to love
Trusting is painful So that you wouldn't notice
I cried all by myself It seems you wouldn't understand

More than this I don't want to get hurt any more than this
But only for now I wanted to love only you

There are times that I tried to forget But right now I want to hold you

Trusting is painful I learned about your past
Even though you're the one who can't forget

More than this I don't want to get hurt any more than this
And yet only you I cannot hold tightly

August 5th Inside the clear sky devoid of clouds
Now it's over I stare at myself growing bigger on the ground

"I'll be holding you" "I'll be watching you" "I'll be loving you" "I'll be thinking of you"

I don't have any regrets, I too am part of myself after all
That's better than miserably loving your regrets, isn't it?

"I'm losing you"



  • Because 理由 is usually read as りゆう (riyū), this song can also be found under that name. The kanji for わけ (wake) would be 訳. Both mean "reason".


  • Because the lyrics of this song aren't included in the album booklet, they were taken from the original version instead, along with a translation made by Kayaちゃんねる. The only audible differences are the change of the pronoun 僕 (boku) to 俺 (ore) and the addition of the last verse.
