Lyrics (Tadashi Kita)
anokoro futari no apato ha
hadaka denkyuu mabushikute
kamo tsuressha ga touru to yureta
futari ni niai no heya deshita
oboetemasu ka samui yoru
aka chouchin ni sasowarete
oden wo takusan kaimashita
tsuki ni ichido no zeitakuda kedo
o sake mochoppiri non dawane
ame ga tsuzukuto shigoto mo sezuni
kyabetsu bakari wo kajitteta
sonna kurashi ga okashikute
anata no yoko ga o mitsu meteta
anata to wakareta ame no yoru
konshuu denwa no haku no naka
hiza wo kakaete nakimashita
ikiteru koto ha tada sore dakede
kanashii koto da to shirimashita
ima demo toki doki ame no yoru
aka chouchin mo nureteiru
yatai ni anataga
iru you na kigashimasu
senaka marumete sandaru haite
hitori de iruyouna kigashimasu
At that time in our apartment
there was this luminous light bulb
when the train passed, it moved
It was our room
remember the cold nights reminds
Red lights attracting us
We bought a lot of oden (japanese one pot dishes)
The moon is a luxury once in a month
we drank some sake too
When it rained, we didn't work
eating only cabbages
I found our life was funny
Watching your side face
The night we separated it rained 
In the phone booth
Seated, knees on the ground, I cried 
To live was just ...
I understand at this time it was sad
Even now when there's rainy nights
Red lights are wet
In the yatai
I feel you are here
Rounded back, flip flop
I feel you are here alone
