What I thought wasn't mine
In the light
Wasn't one of a kind,
A precious pearl
When I wanted to cry
I couldn't cause I
Wasn't allowed

Gomenasai for everything
Gomenasai, I know I let you down
Gomenasai till the end
I never needed a friend
Like I do now

What I thought wasn't all
So innocent
Was a delicate doll
Of porcelain

When I wanted to call you
And ask you for help
I stopped myself
Gomenasai for everything
Gomenasai, I know I let you down
Gomenasai till the end
I never needed a friend
Like I do now

What I thought was a dream
A mirage
Was as real as it seemed
A privilege
When I wanted to tell you
I made a mistake
I walked away
Gomenasai, for everything
Gomenasai, Gomenasai,
Gomenasai,
I never needed a friend,
Like I do now
Gomenasai, I let you down
Gomenasai, Gomenasai,
Gomenasai till the end
I never needed a friend
Like I do now

    lo que pensé no era mío...
    en la luz no estaba ese tipo
    de piedra preciosa
    cuando quise llorar
    no pude porque
    lo tenía prohibido

    perdoname por todo
    perdoname...
    se que te decepcione
    perdoname hasta el final
    nunca necesite una amiga
    como ahora

    lo que pensé no era todo
    tan inocente
    era una delicada muñeca
    de porcelana

    cuando quise llamarte
    pedirte ayuda
    me detuve

    perdoname por todo
    perdoname...
    se que te decepcione
    perdoname hasta el final
    nunca necesite una amiga
    como ahora

    lo que pensé era un sueño
    un espejismo
    era tan real como parecía
    un privilegio
    cuando quise decirtelo
    cometí un error
    y me fuí lejos

    perdoname por todo
    perdoname...
    se que te decepcione
    perdoname hasta el final
    nunca necesite una amiga
    como ahora

    I could really relate to this song. This one is so touching and emotional. I have experienced this already before. I'm in tears again right now. Anyway, this song is about a girl trying to apologize to a friend. The girl who is apologizing is in deep need of help but her friend is not there for her, because she didn't have the courage to ask her friend. Their friendship had shattered into pieces and she is asking if they could fix it back again so that they would come back again. Hope the meaning helps. I'm actually currently experiencing it again right now, i forgot to tell. So i listened to the song once more.

    Gomenasai!
    It's a beautiful japanese word that holds depth and meaning.
    To say "i'm sorry" isn't an easy thing. It's a blow to our pride. No one likes to admit that they were in the wrong.
    But say it and your world will be brighter and hapier.
    I got hooked onto this song by a japanese-fan friend of mine. :)
    Mom and dad are telling me to go upstairs! I better go now!
    11 year old ___ (i'm not telling you my name stalker) signing off. :)
    Bye!

    this, for me, is about your life
    about telling someone your feeling
    about sharing your feelings
    but you yourself you couldn't
    like in the past you can accept that you don't want any one beside you
    but now... you can't do so
    yes i agree it's about saying sorry
    sorry forever and till the end
    each of us has our own faults
    and this means heartedly saying sorry
    to the people near you
    near your heart
    in your heart ^^

    For me, it's saying sorry to someone because something happened to them that you can't change and it's your fault that it happened.
