BAND-MAID – Before Yesterday

Lyrics: Nakamura Kanata
Song: Okamoto Hiroshi
Translation: Kafka

The day that I bid farewell is ending
It’s already turning into a hollow morning
My clothes remained removed and thrown down
Though this room’s scenery remains the same

But now I’m so hard on myself
There’s light shining on the table
The sunshine is far too bright
It torments me

Before yesterday
How did I manage
To live up to this moment?
I stood up by myself
I face the curtain and held my hands high

The night I went home fully spent
“Courage or something” you told me
We huddled as we saw the end credits
By the next day, I was already looking forward

But now you’re so down on yourself
Even alone, It’ll be alright
And you used to make me smile
I’ve become stronger

Before yesterday
I’m also like that
Like being a burden to someone
Remnants of your
Warmth is still present as of now

Although we would only
Return to the days before we met
Why is it this difficult?

Before yesterday
How did I manage
To live up to this moment?
I stood up by myself
I opened the curtains

Good-bye yesterday
I’m also like that
I’m being a burden to someone right?
Remnants of your
Warmth is enveloped around my future

Kanji:

さよならした日が終わってく
カラッポの朝がそこまで来てる
脱ぎ捨てた服はそのままだし
部屋の風景は変わらないのに

But now I’m so hard on myself
テーブルを照らす光
The sunshine is far too bright
苦しめられる

Before yesterday
僕はどうやって
今まで生きて来たんだっけ
一人立ち上がり
カーテンへ向かって手を伸ばす

ボロボロになって帰った夜
“勇気がなにか”を教えてくれた
肩を寄せ合って見たエンドロール
次の日にはもう前を見てた

But now you’re so down on yourself
一人でも大丈夫
And you used to make me smile
強くなれたよ

Before yesterday
僕もそうやって
誰かを支えられるように
置き去りの君の
温もりが今でも残ってる

出会う前の毎日に
戻るだけのはずなのに
どうしてこんなにも難しいんだろう

Before yesterday
僕はどうやって
今まで生きて来たんだっけ
一人立ち上がり
カーテンを開いた

Good-bye yesterday
僕もそうやって
誰かを支えていくんだろう
置き去りの君の
温もりが未来を包み込む
