LyricsEdit

Uta wo utatte minna de aruita
Sore ga kibou wo musubu mono datta

Utsukushii machi to mujaki ni ha ienai
Soko ni aru kanashimi wo shitta kara

Aoba ha saku kisetsu ha kawatte mo
Nando demo mebaeru chikara wo motteru
Namida fuita egao ha hana no you
Kotoba ni ha dekinai
Tada zutto issho ni iyou

Michi no ue demo odotta ano kono
Tanoshii DANSU de warai korogeta no

Suki dakara dekiru yamenai to itta
Akogare wa ima mo mada yume no tochuu

Aoba ga chiri kisetsu ga utsuri yuku
Ushinau mono ooi kokoro no oku de
Mebuku asa wo shinjite oikaketa
Tsumetaite ni iki wo fuki kakete atatameta

Ganbatte ne to kantan ni ienai yo
Kotonoha to aoba no kirakira wo aoi de


Aoba wa saku kisetsu wa kawatte mo
Nando demo mebaeru chikara wo motteru
Namida fuita egao wa hana no you
Kotoba ni wa dekinai
Tada zutto issho ni iyou

歌を歌って みんなで歩いた
それが希望を 結ぶものだった

うつくしい街と 無邪気には言えない
そこにある かなしみを 知ったから

青葉は咲く 季節はかわっても
何度でも芽生える ちからを持ってる
涙ふいた笑顔は花のよう
言葉にはできない
ただずっと 一緒にいよう

道の上でも 踊ったあのこの
楽しいダンスで 笑いころげたの

好きだからできる やめないと言った
憧れは 今もまだ 夢の途中

青葉が散り 季節が移りゆく
うしなうもの多い こころの奥で
芽吹く朝を 信じて追いかけた
つめたい手に息をふきかけて あたためた

がんばってねと かんたんに言えないよ
言の葉と青葉の きらきらを あおいで


青葉は咲く 季節はかわっても
何度でも芽生える ちからを持ってる
涙ふいた笑顔は花のよう
言葉にはできない
ただずっと 一緒にいよう

Singing a little tune, we walked together
That is our hopes tied together

I would say that this beautiful street is not simple-minded
Because I knew about the sadness of that place

Green leaves blooms, and no matter how the season changes
It still waits and sprouts as many times as it could
Wipe away your tears, and your smile looks like a flower
Don't say anything now
Because it is enough as long as we together

Those moments when we danced even on the streets
We danced happily and laughed about it

I liked it so I started off, and I will never give up
That vision is still in the middle of a dream

Green leaves scatters on the floor, and time passes
I've lost many things from deep inside my heart
Follow and believe in the morning of sprouting
I felt warm as I breathed out towards my cold hands

I can't say "Do your best" easily
Words and green leaves shimmer together

Green leaves blooms, and no matter how the season changes
It still waits and sprouts as many times as it could
Wipe away your tears, and your smile looks like a flower
Don't say anything now
Because it is enough as long as we together
