KAN – Kimi ga Suki Mune ga Itai

君が好き胸が痛い (I Love You So Much It Hurts)

Even after I spot you in the crowd of people
I still pretend like I don’t see you
I want to see you smile first
For no reason in particular

There are so many things I want to talk to you about
I don’t know where to start
In any case, I’m so glad I got to meet you
Even though you must be so busy

Ah, I love you so much it hurts
I want to be closer to you
I might be constantly joking around
But you don’t know
The crushing loneliness I feel

Walking with you in the evening
It feels awkward somehow
I have everything I want, for the most part
The only thing missing is you

Ah, I love you so much it hurts
I want to see you closer
I might be pretending to look cool as always
But you don’t know
I’m so lonely I could cry

Time in this city will undoubtedly keep passing
Everyone around us will keep getting older
But the one thing that won’t change
Is the fact that I’ll still love you
As I remain in place
Just marking time

Ah, I love you so much it hurts
In the end, it’s you I want to be with
I might be pretending to look cool as always
But I’m so lonely I could cry
Ah, you don’t know
Ah, you don’t yet know me

KAN – Curry Rice

カレーライス (Curry Rice)

I made you angry again
And before long you started crying
You escaped outside to the slight coldness of the evening

I guess it can’t be helped
Tonight I’ll heat up the leftover curry from the fridge and wait for you
In silence

I’m looking for a good way of putting it
Something that sounds trivial and yet somehow meaningful…
Got it

It’s like eating leftover curry in the morning
It cooled down once but you just warm it up again, it’s fine like that
It cooled down once but you just warm it up again, it’s fine like that

I guess I’ll head out to look for you soon — it’s getting dark
And there you were, waiting for me at the river bed as always

If you were to really disappear forever
I wonder what I would do?
Let’s just get back home for now, holding hands

No matter what happens, we’ll keep living in this house together
For tens of years to come

Warming up the curry and finding out there was less of it than we thought
Pretending like we’re sharing it equally yet both hoarding it for ourselves, that’s fine, too

So around next week please make some more
Curry rice for me, for me

It’s like eating leftover curry in the morning
It cooled down once but you just warm it up again, it’s fine like that
It cooled down once but you just warm it up again, it’s fine like that

KAN – Propose

プロポーズ (Propose)

There’s this large park near my place
With green grass, a baseball field, even a water fountain
Let’s ride our bicycles there on a sunny day
I’m a little bit faster than you
But it’s not like I’d leave you behind
I like cycling after you, watching your hair blowing in the wind
We don’t even have to talk much, it’ll be fun anyway
So just come over to my place

Even on a day when something bad has happened to you
Let’s go to the park anyway, holding hands
We’ll find some bench in the shade
Here, I’ll play my alto saxophone for you
I’m bad at it as always, so the people, even the dogs can’t stand being around us
And suddenly it’s just the two of us
And then I’ll listen to everything you have to say, even if it’s all out of order
You can take your time
See, don’t you feel a little bit better already?
Let’s sing your favorite song together — it’s fine, no one’s around, remember?
I’m the better singer, but your voice is much nicer
I really do think so

You don’t have to give me an answer right away, but please give it some thought
And then come to me
