(Ooh, smile...)
(Ooh, smile...)
(Ooh...smile anyhow.)

Nigiyaka datta toki wa sugite
Minna kaerou to shiteru
Yogoreta kao de warattara
Sore ga sayonara tte imi

Sukoshi waratte kyou ga owaru
Waratte wasureru youni

Me o ne tojite ne mittsu kazoete
Hora namida mo tomaru
And She Said -> [1]
"Daredatte sotto yokunai yoru o yarisugosu no" [2]
Kanojo yasashiin da yo

Sukoshi naite yasumu youni
Dakiatte kabau youni
Waratte kyou ga owaru
Wakatteru samugari nano wa

Omotesandou no sakamichi o kudaru
Shiroi iki o haki fuyu no sora o miru
Juudai no shounen no youni
Mune no oku no hou o chotto kabainagara

Kono sakamichi no keisha o shiri
Boku wa boku no juushin o shiri
Nodo ni tsukaeteru aoi katamari ga
Nan nano ka rikai shite

POKETTO (Pocket) no naka chiri no youna kotoba
Iezu ni totte oita sono subete
Sotto kaze ni noseru youni
Boku wa kimi o mukae ni yuku tokoro
Boku wa kimi o mukae ni yuku tokoro

Kouyatte zutto kaerazu ni
Futari de itai kedo na
And She Said -> [1]
"Eien mo isshun mo nita youna mono deshou"
Kanojo wa shijin nan da yo

Demo hoshigatte kodomo no kao de
Dakiatte kabau youni
Waratte kyou ga owaru
Wakatteru samugari nano wa

Smile...
Smile...anyhow...

Waratte kyou ga owaru
Waratte wasureru youni

(Ooh, smile...)
(Ooh, smile...)
(Ooh...smile anyhow.)

The lively time has come and gone;
Everyone's ready to go home,
Laughing with dirty faces
That signal goodbye.

Today ends with a bit of laughter,
Slightly laughing to forget.

Your eyes, close them and count to three:
See? Your tears stopped.
And she said -> [1]
"Everyone spends bad nights silently." [2]
She's a kind person.

Slightly crying to take a rest,
Embracing to protect one another,
Today ends with laughter...
I know you hate the cold...

Descending the correct path,
I look to the winter sky with white breaths,
Protecting the depths of my heart
Like a teenage boy.

I know the slope of this hill;
I know my own center of gravity.
I understand what the blue lump
In my throat is.

All those words like dust that I couldn't say,
I saved them in my pocket.
As if to softly give you a ride on the wind,
I'm going to you now.
I'm going to you now.

I want to stay here like this forever,
And never go back.
And she said -> [1]
"Aren't eternity and a single moment similar?"
She's a poetess.

But I want you, my face innocent like a child,
Embracing to protect one another.
Today ends with laughter...
I know you hate the cold...

Smile...
Smile...anyhow...

Today ends with laughter,
Laughing to forget.
