[Lyrics] THANK YOU - Miyano Mamoru English translated lyrics

When I first heard this song Thank you, the second song from Mamo's latest single Kanon, I thought "wow the chorus sounds like Rebecca Black's Friday", but then upon second hearing I fell in love with this song because the lyrics are so beautiful. I'll try to translate the lyrics below. The kanji lyrics are adapted from here. You can listen to the song here.

THANK YOU by Miyano Mamoru (宮野真守) English translation

Although we're so close together,
There's things which I haven't told you about,
"Just tell me how to get straightforward".

“I found my soul a best friend”.
When you place your hand on my chest,
Your face is the first thing that floats to my mind.
“Well just you and you and you”.
But it feels awkward,
Because there's still words I haven't spoken to you.

Again and again thank you.
I say these words to you, the one who found me,
"I'm glad I met you".
If I can say these words through a song, thank you.
For being able to spend each day laughing with you, my dear,
I say thank you.

Thank you, thank you, lemme say I thank you.
Thank you, thank you, now and forever.
Thank you, thank you, lemme say I thank you.
Thank you, thank you, thanks*(1), I thank you.

This isn't just a mere (good) matter,
But an overwhelming feeling of love.
Because I have met you,
So I do not feel discouraged anymore.

“I found my soul a best friend”
In this manner I'll honestly convey these feelings to you.
“Well just you and you and you”
I'm still a little embarrassed,
But I'll give it my best (shot) today.

Again and again thank you.
I say these words to you, the one who found me,
"I'm glad I met you".
If I can say these words through a song, thank you.
For being able to spend each day laughing with you, my dear,
I say thank you.

Thank you, thank you, lemme say I thank you.
Thank you, thank you, now and forever.
Thank you, thank you, lemme say I thank you.
Thank you, thank you, thanks, I thank you.

Although seasons change,
I'll still keep on reaching out for you.
“Well just you and you and you”.
Because I want to see your smiling face,
I'll keep running to you again.

Again and again thank you.
I say these words to you, the one who found me,
"I'm glad I met you".
If I can say these words through a song, thank you.
For being able to spend each day laughing with you, my dear,
I say thank you.

Thank you, thank you, lemme say I thank you.
Thank you, thank you, now and forever.
Thank you, thank you, lemme say I thank you.
Thank you, thank you, thanks, I thank you.

Thank you, thank you, lemme say I thank you.
Thank you, thank you, now and forever.
Thank you, thank you, lemme say I thank you.
Thank you, thank you, thanks, I thank you.

Note: (1) The term is "よろしくね", which is what you would say after someone does something for you.

Kanji Lyrics

こんな近くにいるのに
伝えてない事がキミに たくさんあるのに
just tell me how to get straightforward

“i found my soul a best friend”
この胸に手をあてたら
きっと一番に浮かぶ顔は
“well just you and you and you”
だけど照れくさいから
まだキミに言わない

again and again thank you
僕を見つけてくれたキミに i say
“出会えてよかった”ってね
歌にしたならば言える thank you
愛しき日々の毎日がキミと笑ってばかりだった
i say thank you

thank you, thank you, lemme say i thank you
thank you, thank you, これからもずっと
thank you, thank you, lemme say i thank you
thank you, thank you, よろしくね i thank you

いい事ばかりじゃない
けど感じる大きな愛
キミが見ていてくれるから
メゲないでいるんだ

“i found my soul a best friend”
こんな風にもっと素直に
キミに伝えてられたなら
“well just you and you and you”
すこし照れくさいけど
今日は頑張ってみるよ

again and again thank you
僕を見つけてくれたキミに i say
“出会えてよかった”ってね
歌にしたならば言える thank you
愛しき日々の毎日がキミと笑ってばかりだった
i say thank you

thank you, thank you, lemme say i thank you
thank you, thank you, これからもずっと
thank you, thank you, lemme say i thank you
thank you, thank you, よろしくね i thank you

季節は巡っていくけど
変わらないものがこの手にひとつ
“well just you and you and you”
キミの笑う顔が見たいから
また歩き出せるんだ

again and again thank you
僕を見つけてくれたキミに i say
“出会えてよかった”ってね
歌にしたならば言える thank you
愛しき日々の毎日がキミと笑ってばかりだった
i say thank you

thank you, thank you, lemme say i thank you
