Description: Son Goku Character Song

きらきらと輝いてた / kira kira to kagayaiteta
(It) was shining brightly

だからすごくきれいだった / dakara sugoku kirei datta
So (it) was extremely beautiful

指を伸ばしつかんだのは / yubi wo nobashi tsukanda no wa
What (I) caught by stretching out (my) hand

居心地のいい隙間と/ igokochi no ii sukima to
Was a comfortable place to be*

呼び合える名前 / yobi aeru namae
And a name to call

ちくちくと痛むものが / chiku chiku to itamu mono ga
The thing which feels like tingling

消えてくのはどうしてだろう?/ kieteku no wa doushite darou?
Why did it disappear?

大好きな笑顔それだけ/ daisuki na egao sore dake
It is only a smile that I love

けれどそれがあれば良くて / keredo sore ga areba yokute
But, if that is there, it is enough

わすれたくないキモチ / wasureta kunai kimochi
(This) feeling that I cannot forget

どこへでも行けるからと / doko he demo yukeru kara to
No matter where it is, (I) can go

消えたりはしないよねと / kietari wa shinai yo ne to
(We) won’t disappear anywhere anymore

花びら風にちぎれて / hanabira kaze ni chigirete
The petals are being scattered in the wind

みんなの顔見えなくて / minna no kao mienakute
And (I) couldn’t see everyone’s face anymore

胸の奥までギュッとなる / mune no oku made gyuu to naru
The depths of my heart (felt like it) was being squeezed

だけど今も指に残る / dakedo ima mo yubi ni nokoru
But still, even now, it remains in (my) hands

終わる事ない 約束 / owaru koto nai..yakusoku
(It) is not a thing that ends..promise

大切に思うものが / taisetsu ni omou mono ga
Things that (I) feel are important

ひとつひとつ増えるたびに / hitotsu hitotsu fueru tabi ni
When they are increasing one-by-one

嬉しいがはみ出しながら / ureshii ga hamidashi nagara
When happiness is spreading out of bounds

何もかもが飛び跳ねてる / nanimo kamo ga tobi haneteru
Anything and everything is flying up and down

はしゃぎ続けた景色 / hashagi tsuzuketa keshiki
The scenery where (I) continued to be happy in

いつまでも嬉しいまま / itsu made mo ureshii mama
(we’ll be) happy like this always

ずっとそばにいたくて / zutto soba ni itakute
Wanting to stay by your side always

花びら追いかけたんだ / hanabira oikaketanda
(We) chased after the petals

目指す場所に咲く花の / mesasu basho ni saku hana no
Of the flowers which were blooming in the place where (we) woke up

指きりして笑ったよね / yubikiri shite waratta yo ne
We made a pinky promise and laughed, right

離れてまた出逢うために / hanarete mata deau tame ni
So that, even if we get separated, we will meet again

願いみたいに ひとひら / negai mitai ni..hitohira
Like a wish …petals

どこへでも行けるからと / doko e demo yukeru kara to
No matter where, I can go

消えたりはしないよねと / kietari wa shinai yo ne to
(We) won’t disappear anywhere anymore

花びら風にちぎれて / hanabira kaze ni chigirete
The petals are being scattered in the wind

みんなの顔見えなくて / minna no kao mienakute
(I) couldn’t see everyone’s face anymore

胸の奥までギュッとなる / mune no oku made gyuu to naru
The depths of my heart (felt like it) was being squeezed

だけど今も指に残る / dakedo ima mo yubi ni nokoru
But still, even now, it remains in (my) hand

終わる事ない 約束 / owaru koto nai..yakusoku
(It) is not a thing that ends..promise

Thoughts:
This song has lot of ‘colloquial’ way of words..or more correctly, the way a young person would talk (or sing)..so it feels really like a song Goku would sing😀 It is very pretty in that sense!!. “胸の奥までギュッとなる / The depths of my heart (felt like it) was being squeezed” This line makes me cry T_T

* the word ‘sukima’ literally means gap/crevice
