Lyrics~~~

namida no oku ni yuragu hohoemi wa toki no hajime kara no sekai no yakusoku

(the smile that waver inside tears is the promise of the world since the beginning of time)

ima wa hitori demo futari no kinou kara kyou wa umare kirameku hajimete atta hi no you ni

(even if now you’re alone, from the yesterday when you were two glittering today’s arisen as the day you met for the first time)

omoide no uchi ni anata wa inai soyokaze to natte hoho ni furetekuru

(you are not inside memories come as a gentle breeze to graze my cheek)

komorebi no gogo no wakare no ato mo kesshite owaranai sekai no yakusoku

(even after parting in an afternoon, sunshine leaking through leaves) the promise of the world never dies)

ima wa hitori demo ashita wa kagirinai anata ga oshietekureta yoru ni hisomu yasashisa

(now you’re alone, but tomorrow’s limitless you taught me the gentleness hidden in the night)

omoide no uchi ni anata wa inai seseragi no uta ni kono sora no iro ni hana no kaori ni itsumademo ikite

(you are not inside memories you live forever into the melody of a brook, in the colour of this sky, in the fragrance of flowers)
