Fearing a simple life is a thing of the past
Because I know the sorrow of a complicated life.

I don’t wish to return
My heart wishes to believe, and look, it’s shouting out
That “this is no mistake”

Two of us, passing the same time, believing in the same future
Yesterday’s tears and today’s smiles are all real

Knowing the same pain, gathering the same gentleness
To change it into the strength to live on tomorrow

If in that time, at that place, I was fighting
And my reason for doing so was because I chose to be here now

I used to avoid facing my past, not referring to it, leaving it behind
Did I then forgive such a past because I wished to be forgiven myself?

That time when we were free to be ourselves, is far gone
And though we can’t live through this time with just innocent smiles

Let us progress. Even so, we can continue to progress
Because we still have hearts that can believe in something

Hey, since the past and into the future
We have never wished for much

Two of us, passing the same time, believing in the same future
Yesterday’s tears and today’s smiles are all real

Knowing the same pain, gathering the same gentleness
Surely, as long as it can change into strength that lets us live on tomorrow

Tanjun na hibi wo osoreteita no wa mou tooi mukashi
Fukuzatsu na hibi koso kanashii no wo shitteru

Modoritai toka ja nakute
Shinjitai kokoro ga hora senaka de sakenderu
“Machigatte nanka inai yo” tte

Onaji toki wo kizande onaji mirai shinjiteru futari
Kinou no namida mo kyou no egao mo shinjitsu na mama

Onaji itami wo shitte onaji yasashisa mochiyotta
Ashita wo ikite yukeru tsuyosa ni kaete yuku kara

Ano toki ni ano bashi ni ite tatakatteita jibun ga
Subete wa ima wo erabu tame datta to shita nara

Mukiaezu okisari na mama me wo sorashiteita kako wo
Yurushitai to omou no wa yurusaretai kara na no kana

Bokura ga tada jiyuu de irareta ano koro wa tookute
Mujaki na egao dake ja kono koro wa sugosenai kedo

Bokura wa susunde yuku sore demo susumi tsuzuketeku
Nanika wo shinjirareru kokoro ga nokotteru kara

Nee bokura wa koremade datte korekara datte
Ooku no koto wo nozondari wa shinai yo

Onaji toki wo kizande onaji mirai shinjiteru futari
Kinou no namida mo kyou no egao mo shinjitsu na mama

Onaji itami wo shitte onaji yasashisa mochiyotta
Ashita wo ikite yukeru tsuyosa ni kaete yukete nara kitto

KANJI

単純な日々をおそれていたのはもう遠い昔
フクザツな日々こそ悲しいのを知ってる

戻りたいとかじゃなくて信じたい心がほら
背中で叫んでる間違ってなんかいないよって

同じ時間を刻んで同じ未来信じてるふたり
昨日の涙も今日の笑顔も真実なまま

同じ痛みを知って同じ優しさ持ちよった
明日を生きて行ける強さに変えて行くから

あの時にあの場所にいて戦っていた自分が
全ては現在を選ぶためだったとしたなら

向き合えず置き去りなまま目をそらしていた過去を
許したいと思うのは許されたいからなのかな

僕らがただ自由でいられたあの頃は遠くて
無邪気な笑顔だけじゃこの頃は過ごせないけど

僕らは進んで行くそれでも進み続けてく
何かを信じられる心が残っているから

ねえ僕らはこれまでだってこれからだって
多くのことを望んだりはしないよ

同じ時間を刻んで同じ未来信じてるふたり
昨日の涙も今日の笑顔も真実なまま

同じ痛みを知って同じ優しさ持ちよった
明日を生きて行ける強さに変えて行けたならきっと
