Japanese Kanji Japanese Rōmaji English Translation
Mitomete ita okubyou na kako
Wakaranai mama ni kowagatte ita
Ushiro no jibun ga genjitsu wo ima ni utsusu
I admit that I had a cowardly past
I was always afraid, without even knowing why
From behind, my past self reflects the reality onto the present
儚い心 乱して
Ikutsu mono sora wo kaita koko wa kitto
Hakanai kokoro midashite
This place, which has painted several skies, will surely
Mess up my fleeting heart
気付く弱い私 君がいれば
Yume de takaku tonda karada wa
Donna fuan matotte mo furiharatte iku
Nemuru chiisana omoi hirogari dashite
Kizuku yowai watashi kimi ga ireba
In my dream, I flew up high
And shook off all the fears surrounding my body
The small feeling residing deep inside my heart is spreading out
I realize that I’m weak, but as long as you’re here with me
Kurai sekai tsuyoku ireta
Nagai yume miru kokoro wa sou eien de
Even in this dark world, I can be strong
My heart is having a long dream, yes, it’s eternal
