Print Lyrics


Kimi ga subete hanashiowari
Me no mae ni wa futatsu no michi

Tsuraku nagai tabi no tochuu
Omotai nimotsu futatsu ni wakeru

Sore nara miki o tore
Shinjiteru mama ni
Bokura wa hidari e to yuku

Ima haruka na
Yuuhi no naka
Kage toketeku
Ryoute furu yo
Kimi ga kieru made

Saraba tomo yo wasure wa shinai
Deaeta koto hokori ni omou

Boku no kawari no kibou no tsue ga
Hikari no saki michibiku darou

Namida wa kawaku mono
Inori tsudzukeru yo
Haruka na kono sora no shita

Mata dokoka de
Omoidashite
Kitto bokura mo
Onaji ame ni utareteiru no sa

Aa  sakura no
Hana ga mau yo
Aa  sorezore
Yumemiru michi

Ima haruka na
Yuuhi no naka
Kage toketeku
Ryoute furu yo
Kimi ga kieru made


You finish talking about everything;
There are two roads before us.

Along the long and painful journey,
Our heavy baggage is split in two.

In that case, you take the right:
Go the way you believe is right.
We'll take the left.

Now your shadow melts
Into the sunset...
Far away,
I'll wave with both hands
Until you disappear.

Farewell my friend, I won't forget you --
I'm proud that we were able to meet.

A cane of hope will surely guide you into the light,
In place of me.

Your tears will dry...
I'll keep praying
Under the distant sky.

Think of me again
Somewhere --
I'm sure the same rain
Is beating down on us.

Ah -- cherry blossoms
Dance...
Ah -- on the paths
Of our respective dreams...

Now your shadow melts
Into the sunset...
Far away,
I'll wave with both hands
Until you disappear.
