I wrote a small song a few days ago and I'd like to have help translating it to Japanese.
I'm currently studying Japanese but my actual level of knowledge isn't that big.
I decided not to go around searching for the words that I think would fit, because I lack proper knowledge on the impact they might have on the sentences. (which might have the side effect of changing it in undesired ways)
Here is the lyric I wrote, if somebody could give me a hand, I'd really appreciate it:
"Even if only for a second
Stop to think of the things you did
All you've accomplished and what you've lost
Was it worth it? Are you pleased?
Was it worth going through so much
To simply perish in the end?
Does love pay back sacrifice?
Or should you have hated more?
If there is no dream to pursuit
There is no reason to live at all
Even if it is something foolish
Look up to it and carry on
Did you ever think of escaping
A life where the only certainty is death
Where your dreams will fade away
Along with all love and pain?
Being naive to the point of stupidity
We follow on without thinking much
That the life we insist on living
Is but a leaf carried by a river called time
Thank you very much.
