Give Me a Reason

Only sixteen 今夜
矛盾だらけの自由に追われながら走り出す

Only sixteen   kon'ya
Mujun darake no jiyuu ni oware nagara hashiridasu


Only sixteen, tonight
I run while being chased by freedoms full of contradictions.


何にも縛られたくないって叫びながら
絆求めてるhey
守られるだけじゃなく誰かを守りたい

Nannimo shibaretakunai tte sakebi nagara
Kizuna motomeru hey
Mamorareru dake ja naku dareka wo mamoritai


I scream that I don't want to be tied down by anything,
But I still crave bonds, hey,
I don't want to just be protected, I want to protect someone, too.


Give me a reason to show you
訳(りゆう)も無く微笑む度に
(Won't you) Tell me why I should try to
明日を見つめようとしないで
Give me a reason to love you
すべての法則うらぎってみせる
たとえそれが運命でも

Give me a reason to show you
Riyuu mo naku hohoemu tabi ni
(Won't you) Tell me why I should try to
Ashita wo mitsumeyou to shinai de
Give me a reason to love you
Subete no housoku uragitte miseru
Tatoe sore ga unmei demo


Give me a reason to show you,
When you smile for no reason,
(Won't you) Tell me why I should try to
Don't look towards tomorrow,
Give me a reason to love you
I'll defy all the laws,
Even if one of them is the law of destiny.


一人だけの誓い   ギュッとささやいて眠る
もう少しだけ素直でもいい

Hitori dake no chikai   gyu tto sasayaite nemuru
Mou sukoshi dake sunao demo ii


I embrace you as I fall asleep, whispering a vow only for myself,
It might be all right to be a little more honest.


やっと見つけた答えは姿を変え
わたしを惑わすhey
くやしいほど遠くから   からかわれてるみたい

Yatto mitsuketa kotae wa sugata wo kae
Watashi wo madowasu hey
Kuyashii hodo tooku kara   karakawareteru mitai


The answer I've found at last is changing my shape,
It's bewildering me, hey,
Like someone's teasing me from far away, so frustrating.


Give me a reason to show you
いつか君に追いつきたい
(Won't you) Tell me why I should try to
近づく程に遠くなるみたいだ
Give me a reason to love you
今は一人にしないで
If I had you
この夜もコワクないのに

Give me a reason to show you
Itsuka kimi ni oitsukitai
(Won't you) Tell me why I should try to
Chikadzuku hodo ni tooku naru mitai da
Give me a reason to love you
Ima wa hitori ni shinai de
If I had you
Kono yoru mo kowakunai no ni


Give me a reason to show you
I want to follow after you one day,
(Won't you) Tell me why I should try to
It's like the closer I get, the further you get,
Give me a reason to love you,
Don't leave me alone, now,
If I had you,
I wouldn't be afraid of this night.


Give me a reason to show you
振り返りながら来た道
(Won't you) Tell me why I should try to
もう立ち止まることをおそれないよ
Give me a reason to love you
ほんとはワケなんていらない
子供みたいに声をあげて走ろう

Give me a reason to show you
Furikaeri nagara kita michi
(Won't you) Tell me why I should try to
Mou tachidomaru koto wo osorenai yo
Give me a reason to love you
Honto wa wake nante iranai
Kodomo nitai ni koe wo agete hashirou


Give me a reason to show you,
The road came while I was looking over my shoulder,
(Won't you) Tell me why I should try to
I won't be afraid of stopping anymore,
Give me a reason to love you,
Really, I don't need any reasons,
Let's raise our voices and run, like children.
