The dream that made your eyes sparkle and lips smile as you spoke of it
In the end, it brought you pain more than anything else
You were too dazzling, as foes increased and you became alone
With just thoughts of “someday, surely” in your heart

The sun finally rises
As if not losing to its heat
You stand right up again, despite losing heart
For the sake of a self you can’t yet see

Not showing your tears, just facing straight
I gaze upon you
The future you have shouldered upon your small back
Protects you
As you create a new era

Were there many things you couldn’t do because of that dream?
There must have been many goodbyes, the more precious it got
In such times, don’t resist, it’s ok to cry out loud
With the courage to show weakness, dreams alone will never leave you

No matter when, just facing straight
You continued to stand, believing in yourself
Continued to change loneliness into strength
With the same smile as that day

Not showing your tears, just facing straight
I gaze upon you
The future you have shouldered upon your small back
Protects you
As you create a new era

The dream that made your eyes sparkle and lips smile as you spoke of it
In the end, it’ll make you shine more than anything else

Hitomi wo kagayakase egao de kataru yume
Sore ga yagate kimi wo naniyori mo kurushimete
Mabushi sugiru kimi ni teki wa fue kodoku ni nari
Itsuka kitto to iu omoi dake mune ni shite

Yagate noboru taiyou
Sono netsu ni makenu you ni
Kujiketemo sugu ni tachi agaru
Mada minu jibun no tame ni

Namida mo misezu tada massugu
Tachi mukau kimi wo boku wa miteru
Chiisai karada ni shoi konda
Mirai wa kimi wo mamoru
Kimi ga jidai wo tsukuru

Sono yume no tame ni dekinai koto mo takusan atta no?
Ikutsuka no wakare mo kitto aru yo daiji ni naru hodo
Sono toki wa koraenaide koe dashite naita tte ii no
Yowasa miseru yuuki mo motte yume dake wa kimi to zutto hanarenai

Donna toki demo tada massugu
Jibun wo shinji tachi tsuzuketa
Kodoku mo chikara ni kae tsuzuketa
Ano hi to onaji egao de

Namida mo misezu tada massugu
Tachi mukau kimi wo boku wa miteru
Chiisai karada ni shoi konda
Mirai wa kimi wo mamoru
Kimi ga jidai wo tsukuru

Hitomi wo kagayakase egao de kataru yume
Sore ga yagate kimi wo naniyori mo kagayakasu

KANJI

瞳を輝かせ 笑顔で語る夢
それがやがて君を 何よりも苦しめて
眩しすぎる君に 敵は増え孤独になり
いつかきっとという 想いだけ胸にして

やがてのぼる太陽
その熱に負けぬように
挫けてもすぐに立ち上がる
まだ見ぬ自分のために

涙も見せずただまっすぐ
立ち向かう君を僕は見てる
小さい身体に背負い込んだ
未来は君を守る
君が時代をつくる

その夢のために できないことも沢山あったの?
いくつかの別れも きっとあるよ大事になるほど
その時は堪えないで 声出して泣いたっていいの
弱さ見せる勇気も持って 夢だけは君とずっと離れない

どんな時でもただまっすぐ
自分を信じ立ち続けた
孤独も力に変え続けた
あの日と同じ笑顔で

涙も見せずただまっすぐ
立ち向かう君を僕は見てる
小さい身体に背負い込んだ
未来は君を守る
君が時代をつくる

瞳を輝かせ 笑顔で語る夢
それがやがて 君を何よりも輝かす
