Official lyrics (kanji) taken from the booklet. (special thanks to Jelle Vlaeminck)

他に何もいらない そんな恋だった
どんな場所にもついていくからね
あたしを置いていったりしないでね

きみは愛想がなく笑うことが苦手
暇なく職を転々としてた
たまには飲んできてもいいんだよ

この街は大嫌い でもきみに会えた

叶えたい夢も未来もない暮らし
でもきみがいればいい
それだけ
朝早く起きてレジ打ちもちゃんとする
いつかふたりで暮らそう

父は酒に溺れあたしに暴力を振るってばかり
母は鬱ぎ込んで
それでもそう唯一の両親

恐怖に怯える夜 そこにきみがいた

彼を止めて もう贅沢言わないから
神様何も奪わないで
血の滲む頬もきみに舐めてもらう
猫みたいでいいな
にゃーお

きみの居ない世界になんの意味があるだろ
きみが連れられてゆく もう届かない

もしもきみにもう一度会えたらありがとうを伝えたらいいのかな
それと今年結婚するよ お腹には命も
それなりに生きてるよ

他に何もいらない そんな恋だった
どんな場所にもついていくからね
あたしを置いていったりしないでね

Romaji lyrics:
hoka ni nani mo iranai sonna koi datta
donna basho ni mo tsuiteiku kara ne

atashi wo oiteittari shinaide ne


English translation:
It was a love where we didn't need anything else
I'll always follow you no matter wherever you'll go
So please, don't ever leave me, okay?

You don't get along with others so well, and you're bad at smiling
You worked from place to place without any pause
Once in a while, you can come over and drink, you know?

I hate this town, but here is where I met you

I live without any future or dream to fulfill
But that's fine as long as you're here
That alone is enough for me
I get up early in the morning, and even work hard as a cashier
Someday, let's live together, the two of us

My father drowns himself in alcohol and batters me all the time
My mother just agonizes herself
Even so, they're my only parents

In that night when I was scared to death, you appeared before me

"Stop him! I won't ask for anything too much!
Please, god! Don't take anything from me!"
I'll even let you lick my blood-stained cheek just like a cat
That'll be nice
Meow~

What does the world mean without you?
Now you're taken away from me, I can no longer reach you

If I could meet you once again, is it okay for me to say "thank you"?
And I'll be getting married this year, with this life inside my belly
And just like that, I'll keep on living

It was a love where we didn't need anything else
I'll always follow you no matter wherever you'll go
So please, don't ever leave me, okay?
