Kikoete kurunda
Itsu no hi mo itsumademo
Kizamitsudzukeru kodou ga

Itsu no manika kigatsuitara
Utaihajimeteita
Dare ni susumerareru koto mo naku

Mitomete toka mikaeri toka
Sonna kimochi wa naku
Tada muchuu de koe o dashiteita

Tsuyogari da to iwaretara
Hitei wa dekinai
Demo jibun ga shinjinakya
Subete ga mu ni naru

Yuzurenai mono ga
Dare ni demo kitto aru
Sore sae miushinawanakereba
Kawaranai koto wa
Muzukashii koto dakedo
Jibun o mitsumeru koto de
Nando demo tachiagareru

Shikujiru tabi yume no kakera
Hiroi atsumenagara
Kata o otoshi tameiki koboshite

Omou youni ikanai no ga
Atarimae da to shiri
Egaiteita mirai ga usureru

Makenaide to iu koe wa
Yasashii yo dakedo
Dareyori mo kono jibun ga
Maketakunainda

Kikoete kurunda
Itsu no hi mo itsumademo
Kizamitsudzukete yuku kodou ga
Akirameyashinai
Kono mune ga sakebu kara
Umareta wake o sagashite
Kono te de tsukamitoru made

[Instrumental break]

Dakara ima ga aru...

Kikoete kurunda
Itsu no hi mo itsumademo
Kizamitsudzukete yuku kodou ga
Akirametakunai
Kono mune ga sakebu kara
Kono te de tsukamitoru made

Ano hi no mama no kokoro de


I hear it every day --
I'll hear it forever,
This ever-beating heart.

Before I knew it,
I'd begun to sing,
Unbidden by anybody.

Not because I wanted someone to listen,
Or turn to look --
I was just giving voice to my overwhelming emotions.

If you told me that I pretend to be strong,
I wouldn't be able to deny it.
But if you don't believe in yourself,
Then it's all for nothing.

We all surely have things
That we cannot compromise --
We just have to never lose sight of them.
It's hard
Not to change,
But if we take a good look at ourselves,
We'll be able to get back on our feet time and time again.

Every time I mess up,
I slump my shoulders and sigh,
As I gather up the pieces of my dreams.

I know that things
Never go the way we want them to,
And the future I painted begins to fade.

The voices telling me not to give up
Are kind,
But nobody wants me not to give up
More than I want not to myself.

I hear it every day --
I'll hear it forever,
This ever-beating heart.
I won't give up --
My heart is crying out.
I'll search for the reason I was born
Until I grab it in my hands.

[Instrumental break]

That's why I have this moment...

I hear it every day --
I'll hear it forever,
This ever-beating heart.
I won't give up --
My heart is crying out.
Until I grab it in my hands...

...My heart will remain as it was that day.
