Since the time when we first met
The sky had always been blue
It hadn’t been all sunny days
But for some reason, I don’t remember it raining

All of us together
On the road to our dreams
Giving each other encouragement
As we continued to walk
One after the other
We said goodbye to people
But we did so with a smile
And now, it’s my turn

Sakura, remember
The days before the flowers bloomed…
No matter the pain
Because we were together
We overcame it all
Sakura, remember
My existence…
Believe in the sun
Look up at this tree
Bid goodbye to this blooming season

The weather forecast for the next day
Was always sunny
Even on sad nights, the skies in our hearts
Were full of stars

The way to work hard
The amount we sweated
Everyone competed
With obstinate willpower
Sometimes, we collide
And get on bad terms, but
In the end, we understood
That we share the same destination

Even when the sakura have wilted
The branches still reach out for dreams
Next year, we’ll come here again
Nostalgic friends
You’ll remember us, right?
Even when the sakura have wilted
They will bloom again when spring comes
Are you doing well?
Look up at the sky
And receive courage, goodbye

Sakura, remember
The days before the flowers bloomed…
No matter the pain
Because we were together
We overcame it all
Sakura, remember
My existence…
Believe in the sun
Look up at this tree
Thank you for this blooming season

Hajimete deatta toki kara
Zutto aozora datta
Hare no hi bakari ja nai no ni
Nazeka ame nante oboetenai

Bokutachi wa isshoni
Yume he tsuzuku michi wo
Hagemashi ai nagara
Aruki tsuzukete kita
Hitori mata hitori to
Wakare mo atta kedo
Egao de mi okuttanda
Kondo wa boku no ban

Sakura oboeteite kure
Hana ga saku made no hibi wo…
Donna tsurai koto mo
Minna ga ita kara
Nori koerareta
Sakura oboeteite kure
Konna boku no sonzai wo…
Taiyou wo shinjite
Kono ki wo mi age
Mankai no kisetsu ni sayonara

Ashita no tenki yohou wa
Itsumo kaisei datta
Kanashii yoru mo kokoro no sora ni wa
Hoshi ga ippai deteta

Doryoku no houhou ya
Ase wo kaita ryou wo
Daremo ga kisoi ai
Iji wo hatte kita ne
Toki ni wa butsukatte
Nakama wareshita kedo
Saigo wa wakari aeta
Mezasu basho wa onaji

Sakura yagate wa chittemo
Yume ni te wo nobasu eda yo
Rainen mo koko ni kite
Natsukashii tomo wo
Omoi dasu darou
Sakura yagate wa chittemo
Haru ga kureba hana ga saku
Genki ni yatteru ka?
Sora wo mi agete
Yuuki wo moraunda sayonara

Sakura oboeteite kure
Hana ga saku made no hibi wo…
Donna tsurai koto mo
Minna ga ita kara

Sakura oboeteite kure
Konna boku no sonzai wo…
Taiyou wo shinjite
Kono ki wo mi age
Mankai no kisetsu ni arigatou

初めて出逢った時から
ずっと青空だった
晴れの日ばかりじゃないのに
なぜか 雨なんて覚えてない

僕たちは一緒に
夢へ続く道を
励まし合いながら
歩き続けて来た
一人 また一人と
別れもあったけど
笑顔で見送ったんだ
今度は僕の番

桜 覚えていてくれ
花が咲くまでの日々を…
どんなつらいことも
みんながいたから
乗り越えられた
桜 覚えていてくれ
こんな僕の存在を…
太陽を信じて
この木を見上げ
満開の季節にサヨナラ

明日の天気予報は
いつも快晴だった
悲しい夜も心の空には
星がいっぱい出てた

努力の方法や
汗をかいた量を
誰もが競い合い
意地を張って来たね
時にはぶつかって
仲間割れしたけど
最後は分かり合えた
目指す場所は同じ

桜 やがては散っても
夢に手を伸ばす枝よ
来年もここに来て
懐かしい友を
思い出すだろう
桜 やがては散っても
春が来れば花が咲く
元気にやってるか?
空を見上げて
勇気を貰うんだサヨナラ

桜 覚えていてくれ
花が咲くまでの日々を…
どんなつらいことも
みんながいたから
乗り越えられた
桜 覚えていてくれ
こんな僕の存在を…
太陽を信じて
この木を見上げ
満開の季節にありがとう
