Japanese

初めて出会ったとき 不思議な気がした
鏡よりもっと似てる人を みつけた気がした
離れず暮らすことが 自然だった日々
命ある限りずっと 二人でいると思ってた
  妹じゃあるまいし
  別れたらそれまで
  笑顔も泣き顔も
  別れたらそれまで

思いもよらぬうちに 傷つけることを
どれくらいあの人に 浴びせ続けたのかしら
もしも妹になら もっと早い日に
あの人も つらくなる前に何か言えたはず
  妹じゃあるまいし
  ケンカなんかしない
  でも その代わり二人には
  サヨナラだけだった

  妹じゃあるまいし
  別れたらそれまで
  笑顔も泣き顔も
  別れたらそれまで
  妹じゃあるまいし
  別れたらそれまで
  笑顔も泣き顔も
  別れたらそれまで

English Translation

When we met for the first time I had a strange feeling.
It felt like I met someone who was like a mirror to me.
Never being separated from you was the most natural thing those days.
I thought it would be the two of us for the rest of our lives.

  I don't want to be your little sister
  And when we're separated, that's the end of it.
  Whether I laugh or cry,
  When we're separated, that's the end of it.

All those wounds caused by memories …
I wonder how this man could keep on rubbing it in.
If I was a little sister to him, he should have said
Something earlier, before it was breaking my heart.

  I don't want to be your little sister
  And not do stupid things like fighting.
  But instead the two of us
  Did nothing but say “good-bye.”

  I don't want to be your little sister
  And when we're separated, that's the end of it
  Whether I laugh or cry,
  When we're separated, that's the end of it.
  I don't want to be your little sister
  And when we're separated, that's the end of it.
  Whether I laugh or cry,
  When we're separated, that's the end of it.
