LyricsEdit

Kanji Rōmaji Translation
こぼす涙も枯れ果てた木が、微かに枝を揺らせば
夏の青さのひと時がふと瞳かすめてく
Kobosu namida mo karehate taki ga, kasuka ni eda wo yuraseba
Natsu no aosa no hito toki ga futo hitomi kasumeteku
When both the spilling tears and the tree that withered away faintly rock the branches,
A single moment of summer’s blue suddenly flits past my eyes.
移ろう時はなぜか淋しい
何でも知ったような目で、まるで大人みたい
微笑む顔がチクリ痛かった
Utsurou toki wa nazeka sabishii
Nandemo shitta youna mede, maru de otona mitai
Hohoemu kao ga chikuri itakatta
For some reason, the fading time is lonely.
With those eyes that seem to know everything, you look completely like an adult.
My smiling face felt the pain of being pierced.
ああ すぐに枯葉を拾い集めて
手紙書けばいつか君に会いに行けるかな
Aa sugu ni kareha wo hiroi atsumete
Tegami kakeba itsuka kimi ni ai ni yukeru kana
Ah, if I gather the dead leaves now

And write a letter, could I meet you someday?

傷つかめように密かに咲いた木陰の一輪の花は
いつかそこで生きる嘘も本当に変えて生きていた
Kizutsukanu you ni hisoka ni saita kokage no ichirin no hana wa
Itsuka soko de ikiru uso mo hontou ni kaete ikite ita
There was a single flower that bloomed secretly, undamaged, in the shade of the tree.
Someday, it will turn even lies that live there into truth.
ああ 生まれ変わりを願い信じてる
君の胸の底に光る未来があれば…
Aa umare kawari wo negai shinjiteru
Kimi no mune no soko ni hikaru mirai ga areba...
Ah, I hope to be reborn.
If there is a future that shines to the bottom of your heart…
もっとそばに居させて
今 底方(そこい)へと手を伸ばし救いだしたいから
君が忘れそうならば僕が繫げよう
思い出のひとつずつ
Motto soba ni isasete
Ima sokoi e to te wo nobashi sukui dashitai kara
Kimi ga wasuresou naraba boku ga tsunageyou
Omoide no hitotsuzutsu
Let me be closer to you,
Because I want to extend my hand down and save you.
If it seems like you’ll forget, I’ll connect it,
One memory at a time.
この広い大地に生まれ生きる「生きている」
時に埋もれ見失いそうになるとき
その葉脈(サビア)の枝の先まで「息をして」
光浴びてこの呼吸感じて
Koro hiroi daichi ni umare ikiru (ikiteiru)
Toki ni umore miushinai sou ni narutoki
Sono sabi ano eda no sakimade (iki wo shite)
Hikari abide kono kokyuu kanjite
We are born into life on this wide earth. (We’re living.)
There are times when we’re buried and seem to lose sight of things.
Down to the tips of those leaf veins, (Breathe.)
Bathe in the light and feel this breathing.
辿り着く結末が真実かなんて、今はまだ誰も知らないから
遠く続く道はつまずく事も
厭わないかまわない
Tadoritsuku ketsumatsu ga shinjitsuka nante, ima wa mada dare mo shiranai kara
Tooku tsuzuku michi ni wa tsumazuku koto mo
Ito wa nai kama wa nai
“Is the conclusion that we come to the truth?” – even now, no one knows,
So on the far-extending road, even if you trip and fall,
I won’t hate you; I don’t mind.
一人じゃないよ
ただそばに居るから
無数の点が一筋の線を結んだとき、僕が見届けるから
君の生きてた全てを
Hitori ja nai yo
Tada soba ni iru kara
Musuu no ten ga hitosuji no sen wo musunda toki, boku ga mitodokeru kara
Kimi no ikiteta subete wo
You’re not alone -
Because I’m by your side.
When the infinite points come together into a single line, I’ll see with my own eyes
Everything that you lived through.
「続イテク続イテク続イテク先ニ」
「終ワラナイ終ワラナイ終ワラナイ道ニ」
[Tsuzuiteku tsuzuiteku tsuzuiteku saki ni]
[Owaranai owaranai owaranai michi ni]
[Continues, continues, continues on from before]
[On the endless, endless, endless road]
全てを 見つめ そして 繫げて Subetewo mitsume soshite tsunagete Fix your eyes on everything and connect them all together.
