A.B.C-Z サヨナラはハジマリLyric Translation

This is a lovely song encouraging someone to get back up and start again after a sad goodbye. “Sayonara wa Hajimari” means “Goodbye is the Beginning”, meaning goodbye doesn’t have to be the end of something, it can also be the start of something new.

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation

 

To your heart’s content Cry Cry Cry

Until you’re completely dried out

That’s it

You don’t need to worry no no

I’ll be here

 

Always in my mind

Even when you’re lost

So that you can be you

Try and start again now

Search for the door

 

Take a big, deep breath and Step Step Step

With just that we will be connected as one

In our dreams we’ll Clap Clap Clap

And make a rainbow

When you’re tears dry then Try Try Try again

The treasure you will come across tomorrow

Will be drawn in the same sky

“Goodbye” is the “Beginning”

 

In these busy days My My My

You’ll get worn down but

Still

Don’t turn back no no

That’s what you decided that day

 

Always in my mind

If you seem disheartened

I will send you encouragement

For example, even if you’re far away

My voice will reach you

 

Spread your hands big and wide and Clap Clap Clap

Your precious things are all here

We’ll be back to back Bye Bye Bye

Taking those first steps

From today we’ll both be in our own places Smile Smile Smile

The treasure that you’ll come across tomorrow

Will be drawn in the same sky

“Goodbye” is a “Thank-you

 

The world is spinning round

Our futures intertwine

The warmth of your words

I won’t forget so

I’ll keep smiling until the day we meet

 

Take a big, deep breath and Step Step Step

With just that we will be connected as one

In our dreams we’ll Clap Clap Clap

And make a rainbow

When you’re tears dry then Try Try Try again

The treasure you will come across tomorrow

Will be drawn in the same sky

“Goodbye” is the “Beginning”
