Japanese Lyrics

Mainichi mainichi bokura wa ippan no
Taikutsu bakari ka iya ni mo nattchau yo
Wakatte iru no ka
Wakatte inai no ka
Bokura wa tsuzuketa toriaezu tsuzueta

Ame ga furinagareta
Kaze ga fukitobashita

Tsukareta karada de oboete iru no wa
Kinou no wadai to kyounen no tanjoubi
Zasshi de mikaketa shashin wo tayori ni
Bokura wa dekaketa tebura de dekaketa

Yoru ga nuritsubushita hana ga saki kakushita

Miwatasu kagiri ni hirogatta
Ano sora wo miyo
Tonari no kuni made tsunagatta ano umi wo miyo
Hitomazu subete wo wasurete shimatta
Tadashii kokoro wo wasutrete nakatta

Ame to kaze yoru to hana Kimi ga tasukete kureta
Doko made ittemo tsuite kuru
Ookina taiyou
Yuku te wo saegiru jamamono wa
Daremo inai yo
Subete wa wasureru koto da to wakatta
Tadashii kokoro de ashita ni mukatta
Bokura wa umi to aozora ni chikatta
English Translation

We got disgusted everyday
With everyday life
We didn't get it
But we kept on anyway
Then the rain and wind
Washed the tedium away
I'm exhausted as I recall
Last year's birthday
Topics from yesterday
Because of a magazine photo
We walked away empty
The night painted everything
Blooming flowers hid it all
Look at the sky extending
Far as you can see
Look at the ocean
Connecting our nation
We forgot everything for a while
But we didn't forget to be fair
Rain and wind, night and flower
You helped me
The sun comes along
No matter where we go
No one gets in our way
I got it that everything is to forget
I moved into tomorrow
With fairness on my mind
We promises the ocean and the blue sky
