So Far Away
Just Far Away
Dokomade demo
Daredatte kunou shite aruiteku

Ano oka no chizu sae (miushinatte)
Iroaseteku kono tokimeki
Mikadzuki no komorebi (itsu no ma ni ka)
Boku terashiteru kono basho kara
Hajimete miyou

So Far Away
Just Far Away
Dokomade demo
Daredatte kunou shite aruiteku

Night & Day
Sou sakende kizutsuite mo
Just Day By Day
Ashita o mitsukeru

Yoru dakara ano hoshi wa (kagayakeru yo)
Shitte imasuka? Omoidashite
Hibiwareta daichi ni (mizu ageyou)
Hitotsubu zutsu ryoute de ame
Atsumete miyou

Sou waratte
Waratte
Kuyashikutte mo
Daredatte kimi datte aruiteku

Nakanaide
Boku datte hitori nanda yo
Kimi ni shika
Mienai So Far Away

So Far Away
Just Far Away
Dokomade demo
Daredatte kunou shite aruiteku

Night & Day
Sou sakende kizutsuite mo
Just Day By Day
Ashita o mitsukeru

So far away,
Just far away --
Everyone walks in agony,
Everywhere they go.

I lost even the map (to that hill)...
My excitement is fading away...
The cresent moon's light shines through the trees (before I know it),
Shining on me --
I'll start from here.

So far away,
Just far away --
Everyone walks in agony,
Everywhere they go.

Night & day --
Yeah, even if we scream and get hurt,
Just day by day --
We'll find tomorrow.

Because it's night, those stars (can shine).
Did you know that? Remember it.
(Let's water) the cracked ground;
We'll collect rain in our hands,
One drop at a time.

Yeah, smile,
Smile --
Even if you regret something.
Everyone, even you, walks on.

Don't cry;
I'm alone too.
Only you 
Can see me, so far away.

So far away,
Just far away --
Everyone walks in agony,
Everywhere they go.

Night & day --
Yeah, even if we scream and get hurt,
Just day by day --
We'll find tomorrow.
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[!!] Wataru & Akiko made their own, separate translations of the song. I actually found Akiko's translation first, years ago, and it seems to be the best one overall. However, Wataru's translation is much more popular (and widely available) online, and it uses simpler English. So I mixed the two versions together to create "the ultimate translation". =)
