School Arts Festival

Drop in here, come visit
Today’s the long awaited school arts festival
Everyone’s been working hard together as one
To make one big stage
Hold on, is it so?
Why must I be here?
Okay, okay, line up, straighten out your chests, the curtain is going to fall

The role I was assigned to was just a nondescript “Boy D”
This wasn’t what I wished for
I guess it’s good to be picked to go on stage from a crowd
But I was just given the role “Boy D”
Teacher, in my world, no matter what others say, I am the protagonist

In this world I am “Boy D”, a “Boy D” who doesn’t even have a name
Who only needs to say one line, “Good night”
On a stage that can go on without me
“Boy D” standing in a corner
No one sees him
But to me, he’s a VIP
Yes, without me, the play cannot start
In my world

I’ve waited for a while, I’m gonna go out
Finally it has come, it’s my turn, open up a path
Everyone, this is my street
Come one, shine the lights brighter for me
What? What did you say?
Santa is still riding his carriage?
That’s only in your world, but this is reality

Present or not, it doesn’t matter
You’ve got no right to order me around
The light that shines on the protagonist
Only leaks a weak brightness
My illumination, that’s the proof that I’m here
Living on other people’s leftovers is my pride
Think this, act this out
Push your chest out and play your role well

“If it’s like this” he murmured, and “Boy D” finally went wild
Something unexpected happened and on the stage, was a solo act
“Boy D” who was sadly captured while trying to escape from the crowds
Teacher, this is public now
No matter what anyone says, I am the protagonist

In this world I am “Boy D”, a “Boy D” who doesn’t even have a name
Who only needs to say one line, “Good night”
On a stage that can go on without me
“Boy D” standing in a corner
No one sees him
But to him, he’s a VIP
Yes, with or without me
There’s no difference? That’s impossible
Without me things won’t be like this

The school arts festival is a huge failure, let’s hold a reflection meeting for our faults
What now? What are we going to do?
What on earth do you want to do?
You’re such a nuisance, how many thousands of times do you want to apologize?
Please swear to everyone that you’ll save the play at the end the next time round

In this world I am “Boy D”, a “Boy D” who doesn’t even have a name
Who only needs to say one line, “Good night”
On a stage that can go on without me
“Boy D” standing in a corner
No one sees him
But to me, he’s a VIP
Yes, without me, the play cannot start
This world that can start without me
But this world cannot start without me, in my world

The seasons pass, it’s autumn now, it’s the long awaited sports festival
Now everyone get into your places, ready, set

If you weren’t here
I’m sure the world would end
Because the world only revolves inside of you

If you are having fun
I’m sure the world would smile
Because the world is only projected inside of you

If you weren’t here
I’m sure I would disappear
Because I could only live inside of you

On the morning that I met you
I called out to the world
And I told it to protect you

Won’t you come save me?

If you aren’t here, there won’t be anything here
Yes, you have saved this world again today

Don’t erase me, don’t leave me, but connect with me
Yes, you have lived, you’ve lived today as well
Thank you very much

On the morning you were born
I’m sure the world was born too
And you’ve always piled on the same years to your ages together

Every time you toss about in your sleep
I’m sure the world wakes up
With a sigh and a caress to the chest, its load is dropped, the world sleeps again

So that you wouldn’t notice, so that it wouldn’t be squashed flat
Let’s make history, let’s scatter the stars and watch over you

Won’t you let me live on?

If you aren’t here, there won’t be anything here
This world and you are everything that is associated with me

Don’t erase their meaning, don’t leave me, but connect with me
Today the world is breathing in the breath you exhaled as well

Every time you blink, the world stops
Every time you’re in low spirits, the world is silent
And for those lives that are like a blink of your eye
In this world, in your hands

If I’m not here, I’m sure the world continues
Because I could only live inside of you
Because the world could only live inside of you

Look around, look around, look around, look around
Look around, look around, look around, look around
