SUROU MOUSHON (Slow Motion) de jikan doori ni
Kimi o noseta densha ga sotto suberikomu

Toiki mo shiroi kaisatsuguchi de
Tsuma sakidachi shite kimi o matteiru
Yuube wa nenai de

Kotae wa sagasezu Asa wa yattekita

Mou nanimo iwanai yo

Daredemo tsumazuki sukoshi tsukarete

Utsumukanai mama tama ikitsukazu

In slow motion, right on time,
Your train quietly slides in.

My breath is white, at the ticket gate.
I stand on tiptoe waiting for you.
I didn't sleep last night;
I was thinking...
But morning came before I could find an answer.

I won't say anything more
As I grip 
Two cans of coffee.

Everyone stumbles, gets a little tired,
And feels like crying sometimes.
Don't hang your head, don't sigh...
Hold your head high,
And say "I'm home!"

When it doesn't go well, your letters grow fewer.
Your smiling face is only in a picture frame.
You leave a message on my answering machine
For the first time in 9 months:
Your arrival time and the faint sound of sobbing.

Yeah, whether you win or lose
Is up to you,
From now until forever.

You come closer in slow motion.
I wonder if you can see me...
If your bags are too heavy, I'll carry one.
Don't be shy --
Smile and say, "I'm home!"

In the slanted morning sunlight,
You're probably
Remembering this town
That you were starting to forget about.

While we walk down the path
That leads from the station to the sea,
It's not much, it's kind of boring...
But the town
Answers you: "Welcome back!"
