When we managed to change our tears into a single wish
The miracle which we saw that moment, that day, is not an illusion

But isn’t it sad, how it has drifted away from our daily lives?

When you feel despair, remember this:
“This day called today that you’re giving up on
Is the day called tomorrow that someone somewhere won’t give up on.”

Also know that I am
Holding onto your hand tightly, so tightly

Please treasure the precious fact that the sun will rise again

Please don’t be afraid of this one step we’re taking

When you hit against a wall, remember this:
“This day called today when you feel that you’re losing
Is the day called tomorrow that someone somewhere is fighting for.”

Also know that I am
Holding onto your hand, no matter how far away you may be

When you feel despair, remember this:
“This day called today that you’re giving up on
Is the day called tomorrow that someone somewhere won’t give up on.”

Also know that I am
Holding onto your hand tightly, so tightly

When you hit against a wall, remember this:
“This day called today when you feel that you’re losing
Is the day called tomorrow that someone somewhere is fighting for.”

Also know that I am
Holding onto your hand, no matter how far away you may be

Namida wo tatta hitotsu dake no inori ni kaeta bokura ga
Ano hi no ano shunkan ni mita kiseki wa maboroshi ja nai

Dakedo kanashii kana nichijou ni nagasareteku ne

Omoi dashite mite zetsubou wo kanjitara
“Kimi ga akirame you to shiteru kyou tte hi wa,
Dokoka no dareka ga akirame taku nakatta ashita.”

Nanda tte koto to sono te wo
Boku ga tsuyoku tsuyoku nigitteiru tte koto wo

Kou shite hi ga mata noboru koto tottoku uke tometetai

Douka obienaide fumi dashitai ippo ni

Omoi dashite mite kabe ni buchi atattara
“Kimi ga make sou ni natteiru kyou tte ni wa,
Dokoka no dareka ga tatakaita katta ashita.”

Nanda tte koto to sono te ga
Donna ni tookutemo tsunagatteiru tte koto wo

Omoi dashite mite zetsubou wo kanjitara
“Kimi ga akirame you to shiteru kyou tte hi wa,
Dokoka no dareka ga akirame taku nakatta ashita.”

Nanda tte koto to sono te wo
Boku ga tsuyoku tsuyoku nigitteiru tte koto wo

Omoi dashite mite kabe ni buchi atattara

涙をたったひとつだけの 祈りに変えた僕達が
あの日のあの瞬間に見た 奇跡は幻じゃない

だけど悲しいかな 日常に流されてくね

思い出してみて 絶望を感じたら
『キミが諦めようとしてる今日って日は、
どこかの誰かが諦めたくなかった明日。』

なんだって事と その手を
僕が強く強く握っているって事を

こうして陽がまた昇る事 尊く受けとめてたい

どうか怯えないで 踏み出したい一歩に

思い出してみて 壁にぶちあたったら
『キミが負けそうになっている今日って日は、
どこかの誰かが戦いたかった明日。』

なんだって事と その手が
どんなに遠くても繋がっているって事を

思い出してみて 絶望を感じたら
『キミが諦めようとしてる今日って日は、
どこかの誰かが諦めたくなかった明日。』

なんだって事と その手を
僕が強く強く握っているって事を

思い出してみて 壁にぶちあたったら
『キミが負けそうになっている今日って日は、
どこかの誰かが戦いたかった明日。』

なんだって事と その手が
どんなに遠くても繋がっているって事を
