For You - Hikaru Utada

When I put on my headphones
and hide amidst the crowd
I feel like
I must've just completely disappeared.

Music
that makes even the sound of my own footsteps fade away
I want to dance until I forget
about you and our fight

When I come back to a messy room,
your existence
re-affirms my own loneliness.

Though it would be better
to be kinder for my own sake
and not someone else's,
I can't feel my loneliness when I'm by myself
That's why, for you...
I want to give you the same loneliness,
so that you can be strong,
so that some day it can reach you.
And so I sing this song for you.

Even on mornings when I don't want to get up,
I get up to see your face.
On sleepless nights,
I hum the song that you gave me.

Don't misunderstand me,
because I don't intend
to rely on you for anything at all.

If there's a song I can sing
for myself alone
and noone else,
I don't want to remember that kind of song.
That's why, for you...
Even though I should be used to it,
Even though I should be more accepting,
When you misunderstand me, I feel like my heart will break.
That's why I sing this song for you

I want to make you cry
Let me hurt you, let me show you I can heal you
When I want to fly
you always give me a brighter sky.
You want to make me cry
You taught me joy through sorrow
When I want to shine
you always give me a darker sky.

Though it would be better
to be kinder for my own sake
and not someone else's,
I can't feel my loneliness when I'm by myself
That's why, for you...
I want to give you the same loneliness,
so that you can be strong,
so that some day it can reach you.
And so I sing this song for you.

If there's a song I can sing
for myself alone
and noone else,
I don't want to remember that kind of song.
That's why, for you...
Even though I should be used to it,
Even though I should be more accepting,
When you misunderstand me, I feel like my heart will break.
That's why I sing this song for you
