Koibito yo boku wa tabidatsu
Higashi e to mukau ressha de
Hanayaida machi de kimi e no okurimono
Sagasu sagasu tsumori da

Iie anata watashi wa
Hoshii mono wa nai no yo
Tada tokai no enogu ni
Somaranaide kaette somaranaide kaette

Koibito yo hantoshi ga sugi
Aenai ga nakanaide kure
Tokai de ryuukou no yubiwa wo okuru yo
Kimi ni kimi ni niau hazu da

Iie hoshi no daiya mo
Umi ni nemuru shinju mo
Kitto anata no kisu hodo
Kirameku hazu nai mono kirameku hazu nai mono

Koibito yo ima mo sugao de
Kuchibeni mo tsukenai mama ka
Mimachigau you na suutsu wo kita
Shashin shashin wo mite kure

Iie kusa ni nekorobu
Anata ga suki datta no
Demo kogarashi no birugai
Karada ni ki wo tsukete ne karada ni ki wo tsukete ne

Koibito yo kimi wo wasurete
Kawatteku boku wo yurushite
Mainichi yukai ni sugosu machikado
Boku wa boku wa kaerenai

Anata saigo no wagamama
Okurimono wo nedaru wa
Nee namida fuku momen no
Hankachiifu kudasai hankachiifu kudasai

    My love, I’m leaving
    On a train east
    I’m going to look, look
    For a present for you in that vibrant town

    No, darling
    There’s nothing I want
    I just want you to come home
    Without being stained, stained by the city’s paints

    My love, it’s been a year
    And I still can’t see you, but don’t cry
    I’ll send you a popular ring from the city
    It’ll suit you, you

    No, star diamonds
    And pearls sleeping in the sea
    Surely don’t sparkle, don’t sparkle
    As bright as your kisses

    My love, do you still go bare faced
    Without even putting on lipstick?
    Look at this picture, picture of me in a suit
    You won’t recognise me

    No, I liked you
    When you lay on the grass
    But the wind is cold around the high-rise buildings
    Take care of yourself, take care of yourself

    My love, forgive me
    For forgetting you and changing
    I can’t, I can’t go back
    To the street corner where we spent those cheerful days

    Darling, I’ll be selfish one last time
    And beg you for a present
    Please, send me a cotton handkerchief, send me a cotton handkerchief
    To wipe my tears
