back number,ヒロイン // Heroine (English translation)

Heroine by back number

Your lifestyle may not suit mine.

Snow falls from the white sky.

“It doesn’t matter”, I spat. So the

Remainders of my lonely breath vanished.

*

I wonder if it’s snowing on your street,

Ah, now, right next to me.

*

“The snow is beautiful.” I love that you laugh.

“But it’s cold, isn’t it?” I love that you’re happy.

You were about to slip. As you grabbed for my hand

You said “Thank you.” I love that you’re joyful.

I love all these things about you.

*

I looked around to see most everything stained white.

The snow scattered. The memory of it may soon slip my mind.

I wrote up an email to you about the surprising amount of snow

But put my phone away without having sent it.

*

I’m the type that people gravitate towards: strong and kind.

I wonder if you could ever be like that too.

*

“The snow is beautiful.” I love that you laugh.

The question has risen. My heart is pained

And I don’t know who to give it to, or where to dispose of it.

I’m just shivering, looking at the same scenery

That you see.

*

When I think about it, every film,

Every novel, every song,

Stars a heroine, and you align with every single one.

There are far-away places I’d like to go, with starry nights I’d like to see,

And when I arrive, I always pretend that it’s you beside me,

*

Even in these familiar streets.

God, I’m such an idiot.

*

“The snow is beautiful.” I love that you laugh.

“But it’s cold, isn’t it?” I love that you’re happy.

You were about to slip. As you grabbed for my hand

You said “Thank you.” I love that you’re joyful.

I love absolutely everything about you.
