My lips spoke a single lie
Just for a very trivial reason
It wasn’t for anyone’s sake
But for my own
Just to protect my foolish self

Before I realized it, countless lies
Had bound me and I couldn’t move, couldn’t do anything

The sky I looked up at was so beautiful
And I thought of you
If only I could face forward with strength
And walk on, just like you do

Halfway down the path, I ran from reality
From all the pain
I thought running away now didn’t matter
Someday, I’ll be able to become
The self that I wish to be

After making excuses, I finally opened my eyes
And realized that I could do nothing else but survive the present

Will this voice reach you?
Will it resonate in your heart?
With your back as a guide to life
I continue to walk on today

The sky I looked up at was so beautiful
And I thought of you
If only I could face forward with strength
And walk on, just like you do

Will this voice reach you?
Will it resonate in your heart?
With your back as a guide to life
I continue to walk on today

Watashi no kuchibiru ga hitotsu uso wo tsuita
Sore wa sasai na riyuu kara de
Dare no tame demo naku
Tada oroka na jibun wo
Mamoru tame dattan darou

Ki ga tsuita koro ni wa kazoekirenu uso ni
Kakomarete ugokenaku natteta nasusube mo naku

Miageta sora kirei deshita
Kimi no koto wo omoimashita
Kimi no you ni tsuyoku mae wo muite
Aruite ike tara to

Sonna michi no tochuu genjitsu kara nigeta
Arayuru itami kara mo nigeta
Ima wa konna dakedo
Itsuka risou doori no
Jibun ni naru no dakara to

Iiwake shita ato de iikagen mezameta
Dekiru koto wa ima wo ikinuku koto dake datta

Konna koe wa todokimasu ka
Kimi no mune he hibikimasu ka
Kimi no se wo ikiru michishirube ni
Kyou mo aruitemasu

Miageta sora kirei deshita
Kimi no koto wo omoimashita
Kimi no you ni tsuyoku mae wo muite
Aruite ike tara to

Konna koe wa todokimasu ka
Kimi no mune he hibikimasu ka
Kimi no se wo ikiru michishirube ni
Kyou mo aruitemasu

KANJI

私の唇が ひとつ嘘をついた
それは些細な理由からで
誰の為でもなく
ただ愚かな自分を
守る為だったんだろう

気が付いた頃には数え切れぬ嘘に
囲まれて動けなくなってた なすすべもなく

見上げた空 綺麗でした
君の事を 想いました
君のように強く前を向いて
歩いて行けたらと

そんな道の途中 現実から逃げた
あらゆる痛みからも逃げた
今はこんなだけど
いつか理想通りの
自分になるのだからと

言い訳した後で いい加減目覚めた
出来る事は現在を生き抜く事だけだった

こんな声は 届きますか
君の胸へ 響きますか
君の背を生きる道しるべに
今日も歩いてます

見上げた空 綺麗でした
君の事を 想いました
君のように強く前を向いて
歩いて行けたらと

こんな声は 届きますか
君の胸へ 響きますか
君の背を生きる道しるべに
今日も歩いてます
