The way I am (translation)

The way I am

One by one, I want to repay
the many thank you’s
One by one, I want to forgive
the moments in my past I cast behind

We’ve shed a detestable amount of tears, haven’t we?
Even so, we couldn’t let go of that last little finger

If there’s possibly a bright future
amidst this detoriation, I want to see it with you
If such a wish will still be allowed
I want to keep walking a little longer, somehow,
through these times

One by one, I want to fulfill
the dreams which were dreamt only to be hid away

And after finally being able to smile, without fail,
reality’s cruelness comes to smack us in the face, doesn’t it?

Even so, as long as you say
you want to believe the future is bright
I will stay here, continuing to make dreams come true
And when you no longer need me, please,
throw me away without hesitation

If there’s possibly a bright future
amidst this detoriation, I want to see it with you
If such a wish will still be allowed
I want to keep walking a little longer, somehow,
through these times

Even so, as long as you say
you want to believe the future is bright
I will stay here, continuing to make dreams come true
And when you no longer need me, please,
don’t pity me

Throw me away without hesitation

Throw me away without hesitation

ひとつずつ返したい
たくさんのありがとう達を
ひとつずつ許したい
置き去りにしてきた過去達を

泣いたりしたね 憎らしいほど
それでも最後の小指外せなかった

輝く未来が この腐敗の中に
もしもあるのなら君と見てみたい
こんな願いが まだ許されるなら
なんとかもう少し歩き続けるよ
こんな時代を

ひとつずつ叶えたい
祈っては隠した夢たちを

やっと笑えた後は決まって
残酷な現実が頬を 叩きに来るね

それでも未来は 明るいものだって
君が信じていたいと言う限り
僕はここに居て 叶え続けるから
必要なくなった時にはどうか
きっぱり捨てて

輝く未来が この腐敗の中に

必要なくなった時にはどうか
同情しないで

きっぱり捨てて

Very sad, I hope ayu knows that she isn’t dispensable, regardless of what the media says.

I think it's about she and her troupe. How some people sometimes nice but also cruel to them. And mostly on Ayu. It's about that she will keep on perform, sing to give 'the dream' her fan want.

That song is everything.

I took it more like a new Who.../MY ALL maybe, as in fans who don't see ayu as their dream anymore can keep to move on without thinking twice and looking back if they feel like it. Not neccesarily that meaning though it could also be targeted to friends or people who are important to you and you helped them but you can't be together anymore. One-sided love, stuff like that.

Anyway it's my favorite from the album. I LOVE it.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I wonder if anyone could explain the significance of "それでも最後の小指外せなかった" translated here as "Even so, we couldn't let go of that last little finger."

I think what she means is that despite the sadness of a situation the narrator couldn't let go of it completely. They are effectively holding on to the other person by the pinky finger. Would this be the correct interpretation of this line, or is there a cultural significance that I'm not getting?

^ I personally thought it was referring to a pinky promise, which seems to be common in japan since they have a word for it : 指切り (yubikiri) which Ayu sang about in SURREAL.
