Japanese Lyrics

Anata ga iru koto ga
Watashi no aruku michi shirube
Futari deattara
Nani mo kowaku wa nai to choushi ni notte

Tarataran tarararararan
Tanoshiku ichinichi wa owaru
Futari dee yattara
Tsurai koto hanbun ko kurai no kimochi de
Fuwafuwan tadayota wan
Itsumademo wasuresou na oshigoto
Te to te wa tsunaida maman
Ki ga tsukeba mou konna toko made
Zutto michikusa mo sezu ni toshi o totte
Wagamama ni natta kana
Yaritakunai koto yatteru you na
Jikan na nai node kore de ii yo
Futari wa nando mo
Onaji koto bakari o kurikaeshiteru
Tarataran tarararararan
Nagai koto nokorisou na hitokoto
Te to te wa tsunaida maman
Ato sukoshi tooku made susumou
Fuwafuwan fuwawafuwawan
Amari ni mo yume no you na dekigoto
Te to te ga hanareta naran
Mata tsunageba ii dake no koto nan desu
English Translation

You're the guidepost
On the road I walk
Since we two met I'm so happy
That I'm not afraid of anything
Tra la la, tra la la
Our footprints go on forever
Hand in hand, just a little further
Let's go far as we can
Shall we make a memory or two?
Because you are here
Another joyful day is ending
And together if we share them
All our sorrows will be halved
Fa la la, drifting lightly
We might forget about work forever
Hand in hand we'll go on
Before we know it look how far we've come
Never straying from our path
We've gotten older, maybe selfish, too
We won't do anything we don't want to
There's no time to spare, but that's okay
So the two of us keep doing
The same things over and over again
Tra la la, tra la la la la
One thing you said I'll always remember
Hand in hand, just a little further
Let's keep going far as we can
Fa la la, fa la la la la
It's all so much like a dream
Hand in hand, but if we should let go
We'll soon be holding hands again
