English translation:

First
I float myself to the very end of the world
Second
If I step, it’s on a lonely shadow of sunset
Third
The more I look, I look more boring; however
Fourth
I poke my nose into their business again even though better not to

I give up and give up again and again
Winds blow to today, which I cannot give up

Fifth
A dull day like any other days
Sixth
I become a sigh-crowd feeling empty and empty

Throw away and throw away again and again
Rains fall into today, which I cannot throw away

Seventh
More cry, more tears get dried out
Eighth
I am at the corner of the town humming that I cannot help it
Ninth
Here, around here is the center of the world
Tenth
Finally a horselaugh
Go again for tomorrow without being disgusted

The rains stopped and left a pool around there
I jump over it easily and see a rainbow in the afternoon
