The song was uploaded to Niconico on August 8, 2012 and has gained over 300 views, yet it was exceeded by its YouTube counterpart (uploaded by EmpathP), which has gained over 12,000 views.

The song is based on, like the title suggests, saying goodbye to a childhood friend. EmpathP says she wrote the song after finding an old notebook she had in kindergarten, in which there were drawings of her old imaginary friend. She realised how much fun she had had with him, and wondered why she ever stopped believing in him. Thus, she wrote the song.

In EmpathP's album Fables of Farewell, "Goodbye to a Childhood Friend" and an instrumental of the song is included. This song is featured in Vocallective's compilation album, Vocallective Sampler 2.

Lyrics[]

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
子供じゃないんだ kodomo ja nainda
子供じゃないんだけど kodomo ja nainda kedo
大人になりたくない otona ni naritaku nai
怖くないんだ kowakunainda
怖くないんだけど kowakunainda kedo
未来に何が起こるか分からない mirai ni nani ga okoru ka wakaranai
また同じことになるんじゃないか? mata onaji koto ni narunjanai ka?
君から別れたくないよ kimi kara wakaretakunai yo

さよなら sayonara

一人で行かなくちゃよ hitori de ikanakucha yo
君を置いてきぼりにされてしまった kimi wo oitekibori ni sarete shimatta
ありがとう arigatou

あの頃に戻れない ano koro ni modorenai
心の中 kokoro no naka
君の記憶生きて続ける kimi no kioku ikite tsuzukeru

寂しくないんだ sabishiku nainda
寂しくないんだけど sabishiku nainda kedo
独りになりたくない hitori ni naritakunai
痛くないんだ itakunainda
痛くないんだけど itakunainda kedo
胸の奥に空の感じているの mune no oku ni kara no kanjiteiru no
君はいなくても 世界変わらない kimi wa inakutemo sekai kawaranai
だから、なぜ涙が止まらない? dakara, naze namida ga tomaranai?

さよなら sayonara

一人で行かなくちゃよ hitori de ikanakucha yo
君を置いてきぼりにされてしまった kimi wo oitekibori ni sarete shimatta

ありがとう arigatou Thank you

あの頃に戻れない ano koro ni modorenai
心の中 kokoro no naka
君の記憶生きて続ける kimi no kioku ikite tsuzukeru

さよなら sayonara

一人で行かなくちゃよ hitori de ikanakucha yo
君を置いてきぼりにされてしまった kimi wo oitekibori ni sarete shimatta

ありがとう arigatou

あの頃に戻れない ano koro ni modorenai
心の中 kokoro no naka
君の記憶生きて続ける kimi no kioku ikite tsuzukeru

I'm not a child
I'm not a child, but
I don't want to grow up
I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid, but
I don't know what will happen in the future
Will things ever be the same again?
I don't want to be parted from you

Goodbye

I have to go on alone
And I have left you behind
Thank you

Those days will not return
But within my heart
I will keep your memory alive

I'm not lonely
I'm not lonely, but
I don't want to be alone
It doesn't hurt
It doesn't hurt, but
There's an empty feeling inside my chest
Even if you are gone, The world will not change
So, why won't these tears stop?

Goodbye

I have to go on alone
And I have left you behind

Thank you

Those days will not return
But within my heart
I will keep your memory alive

Goodbye

I have to go on alone
And I have left you behind

Thank you

Those days will not return
But within my heart
I will keep your memory alive
