Kirai ni Narenai (I Can't Hate You)

Season 2 Opening #1 (1995)
Sung by Ayumi Nakamura
Lyricist/Composer/Arranger?: Ken Takahashi
Translation: Ray Huang with assistance by Yutaka Sasagawa

KIRAI ni narenai demo juubun ja nai
itsudemo jibun no koto ichiban mienai
kujikesou ni nattara namida o
kaze ga tsuresatte kureru yo

I can't hate you, but that's not enough.
Always, the things about me are what I can't see most.
When I become crushed, the wind
takes my tears away.


uchuu no hitomi kara
afuredasu hikari ga tsutsunde kureru yo
mahou no JUERU hoshii mono wa
yume yori kasunde mieru keredo

From the eye of space,
the overflowing light is concealing me.
Magical jewels, the things I want
look even hazier than a dream, but...


KIRAI ni narenai demo juubun ja nai
kakaeta omoi o shinjite
hagane no UOORU tsukinukeru kanata ni
ashita [kanji: mirai] e hirogaru umi kitto kagayaku yo

I can't hate you, but that's not enough.
Believing in the thoughts held,
A steel wall, to the other side breaking through
is the sea that spreads out to tomorrow, surely, it's glittering.
