Yukikau hito utsumuku kage
Nagareru toki ni mi o makasete miru
Shinjitsu sae miushinatte
Kokoro no sukima namida ga umeta

Tomedonaku afureru omoi wa kakushite
Sou tsuyogaru dakede
Te o nobasu koto mo kowakute

Anata ga iru dakede
Kizutsuitemo kurushikutemo
Ima dakara sunao ni nareta nara
Tobikonde yuku yo sono mune ni

Seijaku toka munashisa toka...
Anata no nukumori o motometeiru
Kotoba ni sae sureba sore de
Torimodoseru to shitteiru kedo

Nemuranai kono machi hitori de samayoi
Sou mayoigo no you
Furikaeru koto mo dekizu ni

Anata ga ite kureta
Te o nobaseba todoku kyori ni
Yasashii ni
Tsuyoku dakarete ima
Kuzureochiteku yo
Sono mune de

Isso atashi o shibatte ii yo
Iki mo dekinai hodo ni
Soredemo tarinai toki ni wa
Tada hitokoto dake "aishiteru" to...

Anata ga iru dakede
Kizutsuitemo kurushikutemo
Ima dakara sunao ni nareta nara
Tobikonde yuku yo sono mune ni

Anata ga ite kureta
Te o nobaseba todoku kyori ni
Yasashii ni
Tsuyoku dakarete ima
Kuzureochiteku yo
Sono mune de

The passers-by, the downcast shadows...
I tried just entrusting myself to the flow of time.
I'd even lost sight of the truth,
Filling the cracks of my heart with tears.

I hide this endlessly overflowing love,
And just pretend to be tough,
Afraid of even reaching out...

But because of you,
Even if I get hurt, even if I'm in pain,
I'm able to be honest with myself now.
So I'll jump right into your arms.

Silence and emptiness...
I'm searching for your warmth.
I know that if I could just put it into words,
I could get it back, but...

Unable to sleep, I wander this town alone;
Looking like a lost child...
Unable to turn around...

You were there for me,
Close enough to reach out and touch.
Now I'm held tightly
By your tenderness;
Falling apart
In your arms.

Just go ahead and tie me up
Until I can't breathe;
And when it's still not enough,
Just say those words: "I love you"...

But because of you,
Even if I get hurt, even if I'm in pain,
I'm able to be honest with myself now.
So I'll jump right into your arms.

You were there for me,
Close enough to reach out and touch.
Now I'm held tightly
By your tenderness;
Falling apart
In your arms.
