そして道の上 ただの言葉だけが
Soshite michi no ue tada no kotoba dake ga
Over the road, the simple words
ひとつ溶けだして 君に染みてゆく
Hitotsu tokedashite kimi ni shimete yuku
Dissolves into one, soaking you.

この太陽は夜も輝いて 導く
Kono taiyou wa yoru mo kagayaite Michibiku
This sun also shines at night, leading the way
幻が踊る街に さよならの鐘が鳴る
Maboroshi ga odoru machi ni sayonara no kane ga naru
Visions dance around the town, the sound of the farewell bells toll.

鳥は地を歩き 海は空を流れ
Tori wa chi wo aruki Umi wa sora wo nagare
Birds walk on the earth, the sea flows in the sky
沈んだ魂の そばでうなずいた
Shizunda tamashii o Soba de unazuita
Next to the depressed soul, I nodded silently in agreement.

この太陽は夜も輝いて 夢を見る
Kono taiyou wa yoru mo kagayaite Yume o miru
This sun also shines at night, dreaming
そして急ぐ君の目に 焼き付いてはなれない
Soushite isogu kimi no me ni Yakitsuite hanarenai
And so you, in a hurry, burned it into your eyes and it never came out

終わりなくつづく歌 想いさえ越えてゆく
Owarinaku tsuzuku uta omoi sae koete yuku
A song that continues without end, one that exists beyond imagination
君の目に映るように 胸の奥開けたまま
Kimi no maini utsuru youni Mune no oku aketa mama
Reflected in your eyes, is the door left open to your inner heart.

急ぐわけもなく 過去は消え去り
Isogu wake mo naku kako wa keisari
Without any reason, the past disappears
讃えるものなら ここにあるのさ
Dattaeru mono nara koko ni arunosa
The things we praise — are right here.

終わりのなくつづく歌 想いさえ越えてゆく
Owarinaku tzuzuku uta omoi sae koete yuku
A song that continues without end, one that exists beyond imagination
君の目に映るように 胸の奥開けたまま
Kimi no me ni utsuru youni Mune no oku aketa mama
Reflected in your eyes, is the door left open to your inner heart.

限りなく青い夜 心はもう空のまま
Kagirinaku aoi yoru kokoro wa mou kara no mama
Within the limitless blue night, the heart remains empty
限りなく光あふれ 心はもう空のままなのさ
Kagirinaku hikari afure kokoro wa mou kara no mama nanosa
With the limitless light brimming, the heart remains empty.
