Ryu ga Gotoku: Ring (Shout)

Ring

おめでとうも(Happy) ありがとうも(Thank you)
嘘じゃないはずなのに(心からの想い)
どうしてこんなに胸が苦しいの?
(側にいるのが Why俺じゃない?)

さようならも(goodbye) ごめんなさいも(sorry)
引きずるこの気持ちも
(壊れそうなmy mind)
映さないくらいに
輝いている薬指のring
(俺をあざ笑うように輝くring)

門出を彩る
祝福の鐘の音は
まるで放課後のチャイムみたいに響いた(ring ring)

誓いの口づけ
鳴り止むことない拍手
その中で僕は
どんな笑顔してんだろう(無茶なmakin' smile)

幸せそうな君を
見てるだけで
僕も幸せになれると
思えたらいいのに(俺も涙もしょっぱい)

おめでとうも(Happy) ありがとうも(Thank you)
嘘じゃないはずなのに(心からの願い)
どうしてこんなに胸が苦しいの?
(側にいるのが Why俺じゃない?)

さようならも(goodbye) ごめんなさいも(sorry)
引きずるこの気持ちも
(壊れそうなmy mind)
映さないくらいに
輝いている薬指のring
(I’ll never forget you. 一生忘れない
君へのLoveとこの胸のPain
想い告げらんない 止める術もない
俺をあざ笑うように輝くring)

Ring

omedetou mo (happy) arigatou mo (thank you)
uso ja nai hazu na no ni (kokoro kara no omoi)
doushite konna ni mune ga kurushii no?
(soba ni iru no ga why ore ja nai?)

sayounara mo (goodbye) gomen nasai mo (sorry)
hikizuru kono kimochi mo
(kowaresou na my mind)
utsusanai kurai ni
kagayaiteiru kusuriyubi no ring
(ore wo azawarau you ni kagayaku ring)

kadode wo irodoru
shufuku no kane no ne wa
marude houkago no chime mitai ni hibiita (ring ring)

chikai no kuchizuke
nariyamu koto nai hakushu
sono naka de boku wa
donna egao shiten darou (mucha na makin' smile)

shiawase sou na kimi wo
miteru dake de boku mo
shiawase ni nareru to
omoetara ii no ni (ore mo namida mo shoppai)

omedetou mo (happy) arigatou mo (thank you)
uso ja nai hazu na no ni (kokoro kara no negai)
doushite konna ni mune ga kurushii no?
(soba ni iru no ga why ore ja nai?)

sayounara mo (goodbye) gomen nasai mo (sorry)
hikizuru kono kimochi mo
(kowaresou na my mind)
utsusanai kurai ni
kagayaiteiru kusuriyubi no ring
(I'll never forget you. isshou wasurenai
kimi e no love to kono mune no pain
omoi tsugerannai tomeru sube mo nai
ore wo azawarau you ni kagayaku ring)

Ring

"congratulations" (happy) and "thank you" (thank you)
shouldn't be a lie (my heartfelt thoughts)
so why does it hurt so much?
(why am I not the one by your side?)

the ring on your ring finger
(your ring sparkles at me in ridicule)
shines so brightly that it doesn't reflect
"goodbye" (goodbye), "I'm sorry" (sorry)
or these feelings I drag along with me
(I'm losing my mind)

the chimes of blessing
that heralded the beginning of your new life
resounded like the after school chime (ring ring)

as you sealed your vow with a kiss
amidst the incessant applause
what kind of smile
was I wearing? (such a forced smile)

I wish I could think that
just seeing you happy
would be enough
to make me happy, too (frown on my face, salt in my tears)

"congratulations" (happy) and "thank you" (thank you)
shouldn't be a lie (my heartfelt wishes)
so why does it hurt so much?
(why am I not the one by your side?)

the ring on your ring finger
(I'm losing my mind)
shines so brightly that it doesn't reflect
"goodbye" (goodbye), "I'm sorry" (sorry)
or these feelings I drag along with me
(I'll never forget you, I'll always remember
my love for you and this pain in my heart
can't tell you how I feel, there's no way to stop you
your ring sparkles at me in ridicule)
