KOKIA
give & take

give and take いつもいつも励ましてくれて   ありがとう
お返しなんておかしいけど 詩を書いたから

give and take itsumo itsumo hagemashite kurete   arigatou
Okaeshi nante okashii kedo uta wo kaita kara


Give and take, thank you for always, always encouraging me,
It might seem weird to pay you back for it, but I wrote you this song.


恥ずかしくて  言えない気持ちも
なぜか歌にのせてなら   言えるかも

Hazukashikute    ienai kimochi wo
Nazeka uta ni nosetara    ieru ka mo


It's embarrassing, so I can't express these feelings in words,
But somehow, if it's in song form, maybe I can say it.


あなたは私の為に   私はあなたの為に
愛してる人の為に   がんばれることがあるね
だから give and take

Anata wa watashi no tame ni    watashi wa anata no tame ni
Aishiteru hito no tame ni   ganbareru koto ga aru ne
Dakara give and take


You do things for me, I do things for you,
We all feel we can do our best if it's for the people we love,
It's all give and take.


そうして繋がっていく

Soushite tsunagatteiku

That's how we're all tied together.


心にゆとりがあれば優しくなれるね
自分のことばかり考えてて   ほんと ごめんね

Kokoro ni yutori ga areba yasashiku nareru ne
Jibun no koto bakari kangaetete    honto gomen ne


If there's leeway in your heart, you can become kind,
I'm really sorry for thinking only of myself.


握った手の温もり じんわり   人の手はこんなにも暖かい

Nigitta te no nukumori jinwari    hito no te wa konna ni mo atatakai

The warmth from your hand spreads to mine, people's hands are so warm.


あなたに優しくされて   信じる気持ちを知った
見返り 求めない愛 教えてくれたんだよね
いつも ありがと

Anata ni yasashiku sarete    shinjiru kimochi wo shitta
Miokuri mitomenai ai oshiete kureta n da yo ne
Itsumo arigato


When you were kind to me, I learned to believe.
You taught me how to love without seeking something in return.
Thank you, for everything.


優しい言葉が   心にしみて
涙さえ あったかい

Yasashii kotoba ga   kokoro ni shimete
Namida sae attakai


Your kind words flow through my heart,
Even my tears are warm.


あなたに優しくされて   信じる気持ちを知った
見返り 求めない愛   教えてくれたんだよね

Anata ni yasashiku sarete    shinjiru kimochi wo shitta
Miokuri mitomenai ai    oshiete kureta n da yo ne


When you were kind to me, I learned to believe.
You taught me how to love without seeking something in return.


あなたは私の為に   私はあなたの為に
微笑んだ次の瞬間   生まれてく幸せの輪
だから give and take

Anata wa watashi no tame ni    watashi wa anata no tame ni
Hohoenda tsugi no shunkan   umareteku shiawase no wa
Dakara give and take


You do things for me, I do things for you.
In the moment after you smile, a circle of happiness is born.
It's all give and take.
