24July2015 [INFO] English Translation of the Song “Promises on Sunflower (ひまわりの約束)”


Promises on Sunflower

by Motohiro Hata

LYRICS TRANSLATION:

Why do you cry?
while I'm still holding back my tears
Because I know,
You felt griever than me
I can’t even tell which one of us who’s suffering more

Today was supposed 
to be a useless day
But it’d become a treasure 
when we’re together

I want to stand by you
I wonder, is there even something
that I can do for you?
It’ll always be for you
Forever, always for you
I want you to stay smiling forever and ever

Your kindness and warmth,
all of them are so honest
just like a sunflower
From now on, I want to send it to you, too
Because you’re the one 
who’ve made me realize
the existence of happiness here

Far away from here, we have a bright future
Even though, one day we’ll be separated
Just keep walking on our way,
and I believe we’d meet again
beyond the end of our path

Our steps were supposed 
to be mismatched
But now, they've overlapped, 
became a one way

The fact that you’re standing by me
and all the casual moments we’ve spent together
I promise I won’t forget them
On the day when we’re setting on a trip,
On the moment when we’re waving our hands
I hope you’d always stay smiling

Your kindness and warmth,
all of them are so honest
just like a sunflower
I want to return all of them to you, too
But I know, because it’s you
I’d guess, you’ll say that
“I’ve got everything”, right?

I want to stand by you
I wonder, is there even something
that I can do for you?
It’ll always be for you
Forever, always for you
I want you to stay smiling forever and ever

Your kindness and warmth,
all of them are so honest
just like a sunflower
From now on, 
I want to send it to you, too
Because I’ve found
the true meaning of happiness

  1. Somehow, it broke my heart when I read this.. 😥

    • When I heard him sing this song on the first night I couldn’t help myself from crying. I didn’t understand any of the lyrics and I couldn’t understand why I was crying. I felt like it was already August 27th.

      Thank you for posting the lyrics here, @bestsmile514. My heart feels like a totally squeezed orange right now. Gosh I am sobbing like a kid again. 😭😭

      • Just like a “squeezed orange”. That’s exactly how I felt when I was reading this.

        I love listening to this song over and over after I first heard him sing it. But it becomes quite meaningful after reading the translations.The words are so apt that it’ll move you and touch your heart. ❤
