This is probably my first time
Watching such a dawn
With a wrung out blue paintbrush
I spread out the blue sky, as if melting it

When people make a resolution
The things they see change
Even though the morning
Is still the same as always

Even if your eyes sting
Make sure to watch
No matter how bright it is
That is the future
Even if your eyes sting
The world is waiting
Why
Are these tears overflowing?

There’s nothing to be sad about
But I still feel sorrow
In that sky where the Sun has risen
Just watching it makes me cry

It’s just so beautiful
Without a worrying cloud
I wish for my heart
To be as sunny

Don’t look away
Even on rainy days
No matter what the sky looks like
That is how life is
Don’t look away
Take everything in stride!
Let the tears
Wash away all painful things

Even if your eyes sting
Make sure to watch
No matter how bright it is
That is the future
Even if your eyes sting
The world is waiting
Why
Are these tears overflowing?

Konna yoake wo nagameru no wa
Tabun hajimete da
Shibori dasareta aoi e no gu
Tokasu you ni sora ga hirogatteku

Hito wa kesshin shita toki ni
Mieru mono ga kawarun da
Itsumo onaji
Asa na no ni

Me ni shimitemo
Chanto miro yo
Donna mabushikutemo
Are ga mirai nanda
Me ni shimitemo
Sekai wa matteiru
Naze darou?
Namida ga afureru

Kanashii koto wa nanimo nai
Dakedo setsunakute
Hi ga nobotte yuku ano sora wo
Miteru dake de nakete shimaun da

Nante utsukushii no darou
Omoi nayamu kumo nado nai
Kokoro dake wa
Hare de itai

Me wo sorasu na
Ame no toki mo
Donna sora moyou mo
Sore ga ikiru koto da
Me wo sorasu na
Subete uke tomero!
Tsurai koto
Namida ga arau yo

Me ni shimitemo
Chanto miro yo
Donna mabushikutemo
Are ga mirai nanda
Me ni shimitemo
Sekai wa matteiru
Naze darou?
Namida ga afureru

こんな夜明けを眺めるのは
たぶん 初めてだ
絞り出された青い絵の具
溶かすように 空が広がってく

人は決心した時に
見えるものが変わるんだ
いつも同じ
朝なのに

目にしみても
ちゃんと見ろよ
どんな眩しくても
あれが未来なんだ
目にしみても
世界は待っている
なぜだろう?
涙が溢れる

悲しいことは何もない
だけど 切なくて
陽(ひ)が昇って行くあの空を
見てるだけで 泣けてしまうんだ

なんて美しいのだろう
思い悩む雲などない
心だけは
晴れでいたい

目を逸らすな
雨の時も
どんな空模様も
それが生きることだ
目を逸らすな
すべて受け止めろ!
つらいこと
涙が洗うよ

目にしみても
ちゃんと見ろよ
どんな眩しくても
あれが未来なんだ
目にしみても
世界は待っている
なぜだろう?
涙が溢れる
