Chicago  – Hard To Say I’m Sorry (1982)

シカゴの大ヒット曲です。邦題は「素直になれなくて」。

<It is + 形容詞 + for + 人 + to 不定詞>の例文のような表現が出てきます。

不定詞の意味上の主語をあらわす前置詞には「for」を使うのが一般的ですが、形容詞によっては「of」になるので要注意です。

It’s hard for me to say I’m sorry

(私にとってごめんなさいを言うことは難しい)

大人がそんなこと言っていてはいけませんね。

Everybody needs a little time away

I heard her say

From each other

Even lovers need a holiday

Far away

From each other

Hold me now

It’s hard for me to say I’m sorry

I just want you to stay

After all that we’ve been through

I will make it up to you

I promise to

And after all that’s been said and done

You’re just the part of me I can’t let go

Couldn’t stand to be kept away

Just for the day

From your body

Wouldn’t want to be swept away

Far away

From the one that I love

Hold me now

It’s hard for me to say I’m sorry

I just want you to know

Hold me now

I really want to tell you I’m sorry

I could never let you go

After all that we’ve been through

I will make it up to you

I promise to

And after all that’s been said and done

You’re just the part of me I can’t let go

After all that we’ve been through

I will make it up to you

I promise to

You’re just the part of me I can’t let go

You’re gonna be the lucky one

When we get there gonna jump in the air

No one’ll see us ‘cause there’s nobody there

After all, you know we really don’t care

Hold on, I’m gonna take you there
