Kyou no ureshi katta kao
Kyou no kanashi katta kao
Kinou yowakatta jibun to
Ashita kitto tsuyoi jibun to

Anata nara dare ni miseteru
Watashi nara dare ni misereba ii

Jikan nante mono wa totemo
Toki toshite zankoku de
Demo sono zankokusa yue ni
Ima ga tsukurarete

Hito o motome yamanai no wa
Isshun no kaihou ga
Yagate otozureru kyoufu ni
Masatteiru kara [1]

Ashimoto de yureteiru hana ni sae
Kidzukanai mama de
Toori sugite kita watashi wa kagami ni
Mukaenaku natteiru

Kyou no ureshi katta kao
Kyou no kanashi katta kao
Kinou iyasareta kizu to
Kyou fukaku hiraita kizu o

Anata nara dare ni miseteru
Watashi nara dare ni misereba ii

Ataerareta jibun dake no
Shouki to kyouki ga atte
Sono dochira mo hitei sezu ni
Sonzai suru nara

Muda na mono afurete shimatta mono
Yakudatanai mono mo
Mayowazu ni erabu yo sou watashi ga
Watashi de aru tame ni ne

Shiawase no kijun wa itsumo
Jibun no monosashi de
Kimete kita kara

Kyou no ureshi katta kao
Kyou no kanashi katta kao
Kinou iyasareta kizu ga
Kyou hiraki dashita to shitemo

Anata nara dare ni misereru
Watashi nara ano hito ni misetai

Today's happy face,
Today's sad face...
Yesterday's weak self,
Tomorrow's strong self...

If it's you, who are you showing it to?
If it's me, who should I show it to?

Time is sometimes
A cruel thing,
But the present is made
By that cruelty.

Inceasingly searching
For someone,
An instant of release
Soon surpasses the visiting fear. [1]

As I don't even notice the flowers
Shaking before my feet...
I can't even look at myself
In the mirror.

Today's happy face,
Today's sad face...
Yesterday's healed wounds
Today's deeply opened wounds...

If it's you, who are you showing it to?
If it's me, who should I show it to?

The sanity and insanity
That I was given are mine only --
Both exist together
Without negating the other.

Futile things, spilled things,
And useless things...
I'll choose with confidence,
So I'm always myself...

Because I have always
Defined happiness
With my own standards.

Today's happy face,
Today's sad face.
Even if yesterday's healed wounds
Have opened today...

If it's you, who can you show it to?
If it's me, I want to show it to that person.
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[1] A LOT of lyrics romanized 勝っている as "katteiru" (from the word "kachi" -- 勝ち -- "win, victory").

But Ayumi clearly sings it as "masatteiru"(from the word "masaru" -- 勝る -- "to excel, to surpass").

     ...Of course, I made the appropriate changes. ^^
