Being cheerful is my only merit
But I have sometimes yearned for a risky love
Dramatic events never happened to me
That was how normal my life had been
Since the day I met you
Everything started to sparkle, and my emotions grew stronger
Knowing not a single thing about how to love
This warmth I’ve plunged into was already someone else’s
Every time I punch in my card
The unexpected feeling of incompleteness disappears before I even know it

Even on the stage of love
I never receive more than a supporting role, my script always a single line
Linked by an invisible chain
Is stealing your heart a violation of the rules?
Regretting taking the long road and being too late
I was jealous of the past
And a time I cannot return to
Sighing as my comrades got married
How much longer is it alright for me to not take on a lead role?
To feel so much love for someone
I now know gentleness and strength, and I’m happy with that

The depth of love cannot be measured in form
Goodbye can sometimes change into everlasting bonds
Even if we can never meet again
Your beloved smile will live on in my heart
So, I sing this rhapsody for you
So, I sing this rhapsody for you

Akarui dake ga torie demo
Watashi datte inochigake no koi ni akogareru koto ga aru
Doramatikku na dekigoto wa
Okoru hazu mo nai kurai ni heibon wo ikite kita
Anata to no deai no hi wo sakai ni shite
Subete ga kagayaki hajimete omoi wa tsunoru bakari
Aishi kata nani hitotsu shiranai mama de
Tobikonda nukumori wa hoka no dareka no mono dakedo
Taimu kaado wo osu tabi ni
Futo kanjiru monotarinasa itsushika kieteta no

Koi no butai ni agattemo
Wakiyaku shika moraenakute serifu wa itsudemo hitorigoto
Mienu kusari ni tsunagareta
Anata no kokoro ubau no wa ruuru ihan deshou ka
Ososugita meguri ai wo kuyami nagara
Kako ni yakimochi yaita tte
Modosenai toki made wa
Katazuite yuku nakamatachi ni tameiki
Dokomademo shuyaku ni wa narenai watashi demo ii no
Hito wo konnani suki ni nari
Yasashisa to tsuyosa shitta wa sore dake de shiawase

Katachi de wa ai no fukasa wa hakarenai
Sayonara ga eien no kizuna ni kawaru koto mo aru
Nido to aenai futari demo
Mune no naka de ikitsuzukeru daisuki na hohoemi
So, I sing this rhapsody for you
So, I sing this rhapsody for you

明るいだけが取り柄でも
私だって命がけの恋に憧れることがある
ドラマティックな出来事は
起こるはずもないくらいに平凡を生きてきた
あなたとの出逢いの日を境にして
すべてが輝き始めて 想いは募るばかり
愛し方何ひとつ知らないままで
飛び込んだぬくもりは他の誰かのものだけど
タイムカードを押すたびに
ふと感じる物足りなさ いつしか消えてたの

恋の舞台に上がっても
脇役しかもらえなくて セリフはいつでもひとり言
見えぬ鎖につながれた
あなたの心奪うのは ルール違反でしょうか
遅すぎためぐり逢いを 悔やみながら
過去にやきもち焼いたって
戻せない時までは
片づいてゆく仲間達に ため息
どこまでも 主役には なれない私でもいいの
人をこんなに好きになり
優しさと強さ知ったわ それだけで幸せ

形では愛の深さは測れない
さよならが永遠の絆に変わることもある
二度と会えないふたりでも
胸の中で生き続ける 大好きな微笑み
So, I sing this rhapsody for you
So, I sing this rhapsody for you
