supercell - 告白 Kokuhaku

The second ending song for Guilty Crown. 告白 read as kokuhaku, translates to confession (of love). A pretty cheerful song i should say, so much so that sometimes after a sad episode it feels out of place. I think the first stanza is something to look out for.
 If you sacrificed yourself to save me, how should I think when I am all alone?
The rest of the lyrics depict this very everyday situation between a boy and a girl. A "what if?" situation for Inori and Shu if they were just normal students in our world.

もしも僕のため 君が身を挺して



笑え 君のために
無茶苦茶になって 言うよ



待っていて 今すぐに行くから



笑え 君のために
無茶苦茶になって 世界が明日に終わろうとも

掴め 君のその手を 
約束しよう 僕にこの命ある限り

If you were to step up
and die in my place
What should I think of?
Alone in this world

I wonder if you remember
As I grew to like you, an idea stuck me
I realized you don't smile much
So I wanted to make you laugh  

However this thought was admirably destroyed
In the end I was always the only one laughing
"I'm like you exclusive clown" I joked
Though you gave absolute no response

Please laugh
For your sake I got gloomy and sometimes reckless
but I'll say it
I like you so much it makes me want to laugh and cry

Overlap time and thoughts
That was how I always stayed by your side
I got so used to having you around
That I really felt the weight when you were not there

If only I hadn't let go of your hand that day and grabbed on tightly
In the end I was only doing it for self-satisfaction
"I'm a liar, saying it was all for you"
Even these words i muttered couldn't reach you

I'll run to where you are
I'll fall
and lose my way
but please wait a bit more because I'll be right there
no matter what difficulties may await me

It seemed destined
that we will be together forever
but if you aren't there
I'll jump through time just to meet you

"If you sacrificed yourself to save me
then this time I will definitely protect you
Believe me" 

Please laugh
For your sake I got gloomy and sometimes reckless
Even if the world threatens to end tomorrow

I will grab your hand
Never letting go again
I'll promise you this that as long as I am alive
I will make you happy
I'll fill your life with laughter
That's why I want you to follow me
Is that alright?
