Rough translation of this mind blowing song trying to get the feeling of the words out to those that don't speak Japanese but still wanting it all to make sense. It's a hard song but I hope this will be at least a little something to give you an idea of what he's trying to express in the song.

もし生まれ変わったらなんて言いたくない どうしようもない
I do not want to say "If I was reborn" that'd be useless
僕の人生も長い付き合いの内 愛しくなってくるもんで
I have to go through my life anyway so the right love for it will come
ぶつかって 転がって 汗握って 必死こいて
bump into, roll, with clenched fists, trying so hard 
手にしたものは この愛着だけかもな まぁいいか 
Though what I have in my hand might already be that love, oh well..
That kind of light.

Sometimes I just feel empty and that everything else should be gone
As if God, way back in the days, hung himself in some old apartment in Asagaya
綺麗な星座の下で 彼女とキスをして 
While kissing my girlfriend under the beautiful star sky
消えたのは 思い出と自殺願望 
The memories and thoughts of ending it all are seemingly gone
That kind of light.

Everytime the sun goes up I feel gloomy but I do really like the blue sky
At the park, kids that are playing and the homeless all tucked in under their newspaperblankets
未来は明るいよ 明るいよ 
The future is bright, it is bright.
くしゃみを一つしたら 大勢の鳩が 大空へ飛び立った
One sneeze and the pidgeons take off to the sky

どこへ行けばいいんですか 行きたいとこへ勝手に行けよ
Where do you think I should go? You should go wherever you want
何をすればいいんですか 僕は誰に尋ねてるんだろう
What do you think I should do? Who am I asking..?
何か始めようと震えてる ジャングルジムの影が長くなって
Trying so hard that I'm shaking to try something new but the shadows from the monkey bars keeps stretching longer
僕は今から出かけるよ ここじゃないどこか
Im going now, going someplace that isn't here.
That kind of light

She, pulling all the night shifts making me spend the evenings alone
I wasn't feeling particularly lonely though suddenly I started liking watching shows on TV
朝彼女が戻って 僕が部屋を出て行く 
In the morning she comes home, just as I am about to leave
I really thought she was beautiful smiling innocently like that
That kind of light

Thinking back at when I was a kid playing tags
追いかけても 決して掴めない物 まるで蜃気楼 だけど僕は気付いてる
Even though I chased things that I could never get, an illusion, I realized
本当は手にしたくなんか無いんだよ ずっと追いかけていたいんだよ
that I really didn't want to have any of it at all, I just want to chase forever.
もっと胸を焦がしてよ 死ぬまで走り続けたいんだよ
With my chest burning, I want to run until I die.

流れ流れて明日は東へ 出会いと別れを繰り返して
Tomorrow flowing to the east, people will come and people will go
光と陰を股にかけて 泣き笑いを行ったりきたり
Light and shadow passing each other, laughing and crying comes and goes
そうだよ 大丈夫 大丈夫 皆同じだよ
That's how it is, it's okay, it's okay, We're all the same.
When something is not going well, anyone's the same.
That kind of light

日が沈みまた昇るように 花が散りまた咲くみたいに
Just like the sun goes up and down, just like a flower will bloom after the frost.
全てはめぐりめぐって 全てがほら元通り
Everything going around, everything will get back into place
もし生まれ変わったらなんて 二度と言わないで
Don't ever say that again, "if I was ever reborn"
今君は日陰の中にいるだけ** ただそれだけ
Right now you're just in a shadow**, that's it.

** Translation note: I think that this shadow that he is referring to is a depressed like kind of state, a time in your life when you're feeling down and everything is just blah.

I do not own this song this song nor the video.
