きみが好きだった
ほんとに好きだった
運命のひとだと思ってた
でも今できるのはきみが残した飛行機の模型
それを見てるだけ

やけに眠い午後だ
コーヒーを飲みたいな
あくびしたらきみが淹れてくれる

恋愛小説を書いて
そばにはきみが居てくれたんだ

きみが好きだった
優しいところはもちろん意地悪なところだって
きみが目指してた空を飛ぶ夢もいつか叶うといいと思ってた

筆が進まないな
きみは掃除してる
ここはヒーローになってもらおうか

筆は止まったまんまだ
きみは地味だ 地味すぎるんだ

きみが好きだった
きちんと整頓もできないと怒るところだって
文字を書くぐらいしか能の無いあたしにきみが居てくれてよかった

きみは飛行機を造った
夢を叶えるために

本を書くこともやめた
きみの帰りを待っているだけ

きみが好きだった
トイレットペーパーを三角に折っておくところだって
だからこの空から帰ってきて
気長に焼き芋焼いて待っているから

ああ何年が逢ってしまっただろう
もう待ちくたびれてしまったよ
久々に筆を取ろうか
小説家とパイロットの物語のために

Romaji lyrics:
kimi ga suki datta
honto ni suki datta
unmei no hito da to omotteta
demo ima dekiru no wa kimi ga nokoshita hikouki no mokei
sore wo miteru dake

yake ni nemui gogo da
koohii wo nomitai na
akubi shitara kimi ga irete kureru

ren'ai shousetsu wo kaite
soba ni wa kimi ga ite kuretanda

kimi ga suki datta
yasashii tokoro wa mochiron ijiwaru na tokoro datte
kimi ga mezashiteta sora wo tobu yume mo itsuka kanau to ii to omotteta

fude ga susumanai na
kimi wa souji shiteru
koko wa hiiroo ni natte moraou ka

fude wa tomatta manma da
kimi wa jimi da jimi sugirunda

kimi ga suki datta
kichinto seiton mo dekinai to okoru tokoro datte
moji wo kaku gurai shika nou no nai atashi ni kimi ga ite kurete yokatta

kimi wa hikouki wo tsukutta
yume wo kanaeru tame ni

hon wo kaku koto mo yameta
kimi no kaeri wo matteiru dake

kimi ga suki datta
toiretto peepaa wo sankaku ni otteoku tokoro datte
dakara kono sora kara kaette kite
kinaga ni yakiimo yaite matteiru kara

aa nannen ga atte shimatta darou
mou machikutabirete shimatta yo
hisabisa ni fude wo torou ka
shousetsuka to pairotto no monogatari no tame ni


English translation:
I loved you
I truly loved you
I believed that you were my destined person
But now all I can do is to stare at
the model airplane you left

It was an awfully drowsy afternoon
When I thought I wanted to drink coffee
Once I yawned, you readily brewed some for me

When I wrote the romance novel
You were there by my side

I loved you
Of course I love your gentleness, but even I love your ill-temperedness as well
I wished that someday you'd make your dream to fly to the sky come true

My writing brush couldn't go smoothly
And you were just cleaning around
Would you please be my hero here?

My writing brush just stopped completely
You were so plain and simple... Too plain and simple in fact

I loved you
Even how you got angry because I couldn't properly tidy my things up
I was so glad that you were there for me, who was only good at writing alone

You started to build an airplane
To make your dream come true

I stopped writing book completely
Now I'm just waiting for your return

I loved you
Even how you would fold the toilet paper into triangle
So please, come back from this sky
Because I'll be waiting patiently as I bake some potatoes for you

Ah, how many years has passed since then?
I have gone tired of waiting for you
For once in a long while, shall I take my writing brush again?
To write the story of the novelist and the pilot
