Anata ga Oshiete Kureta (You Taught Me)

Sung by Keiko Yoshinari
Translation Version 1.0 by Fuu (Rika Takahashi)

Hikaru sora to kumo no aida tooku habataku toritachi
Between the bright sky and the clouds, birds fly far away
Kireidatte omou kokoroga kirei nandane
The heart that sees it as beautiful is what is beautiful

Tatoeba kizutsuite namida koboresou
For example, when you're hurt and tears are in your eyes
Sonna toki hitorikiride
When you're like that, if you were alone
Moshi hiza wo kakaete itara
And you were sitting there, holding your knees --
Ashita nante mienai
You can't see tomorrow
Kowaresouna tokini sashinobete kureru
Yasashii te wa itsudatte
When you're about to crumble, a hand offered to you will always
Kokoro goto tsutsunde kureru
Embrace you -- even your heart --
Atatakai umi de
In a sea of warmth

"Isshoni itemo nanimo dekinai kedo
"I can't do anything even if I'm with you,
Namida fuku koto kurai sasete"
But let me at least dry your tears."

Taisetsuna kototachi minna anata ga oshiete kureta
Everything that is important you have taught me
Jibun wo shiawaseni dekirunoha jibun dato
That I am the person that can make me happy
Sukeru umi to sazameku nami haneru youni odoru sakana
The clear sea and the crashing waves, the dancing fish that seem to jump
Sutekidatte omou kokoroga suteki nandane
The heart that thinks it wonderful is what is wonderful.

Nanimo iwanainoni anata egaono
Ushiro no kanashimi wo wakraru
I don't say anything but you understand the sorrow behind the smile
Kotoba janakute kokoroni
Not in the words but to my heart
Yasashii kaze ga fuku
Does the warm breeze blow

"Hanaseru tokiga kitara sugusoba matterukara
"I'll be waiting at your side for when you can explain
Namidano wake wo oshiete"
So tell me the reason for your tears."

Taisetsuna kotowa minna anataga oshiete kureta
Everything that is important you have taught me
Jibun wo taisetsuni suru shiawase arutte
That there is a happiness called taking care of myself
Wataru kazeto yureru konoha utau youni saku hanatachi
The traveling wind and the swaying leaves, the blooming flowers seeming to sing
Sutekidatte omou kokoroga suteki nandane
The heart that thinks it wonderful is what is wonderful.

"Hikaru sora to kumo no aida tooku habataku toritachi
"Between the bright sky and the clouds, birds fly far away
Kireidatte omou kokoroga kirei nanone"
The heart that sees it as beautiful is what is beautiful."

Taisetsuna kotowa minna anata ga oshiete kureta
Everything that is important you have taught me
Jibun wo taisetsuni dekirunowa jibun dato
That I am the person that can make me happy.
