nee ima mitsumeteiru yo
hanareteitemo
Love for you kokoro ha zutto
soba ni iru yo

Hey, we can see each other now
even if we’re far apart.
Love for you, my heart will always
be with you.

mou namida wo nugutte waratte
hitori janai donna toki datte
yumemiru koto ha ikiru koto
kanashimi wo koeru chikara

I’ve already wiped my tears and am smiling,
no matter the time, I’m never alone.
Dreaming is living,
it’s the strength with which to overcome sadness.

arukou hatenai michi
utaou sora wo koete
omoi ga todoku youni
yakusoku shiyou mae wo muku koto
Thank you for smile

I’ll walk, this endless road.
I’ll sing across the sky
so my feelings can reach you.
I promise you that I’ll face forward.
Thank you for smile

nee me wo tojireba mieru
kimi no egao
Love for me sotto watashi wo
terasu hikari

Hey, if I close my eyes,
I can see your smile.
Love for me, the light gently
shines over me.

kikoeteru yo kimi no sono koe ga
egao misete kagayaiteite to
itami wo itsuka yuuki he to
omoide wo ai ni kaete

I can hear your voice
telling me to smile and to shine.
Pain will become my courage,
and my memories, love.

arukou modorenu michi
utaou nakama to ima
inori wo hibikasu youni
yakusoku suru yo yume wo kanaeru
Thank you for love

I’ll walk this one-way road.
I’ll sing with my friends
so my prayers can resound.
I promise you that I will make my dream come true.
Thank you for love

adokenai ano hi no youni
ryoute wo sora ni hiroge
yume wo oikakete yuku
mada shiranu mirai he

Just like in those innocent days,
I spread my arms towards the sky.
I’ll chase after my dreams
and run into a new future.

arukou hatenai michi
utaou sora wo koete
omoi ga todoku youni
yakusoku shiyou mae wo muku koto
namida fuite

I’ll walk, this endless road.
I’ll sing across the sky
so my feelings can reach you.
I promise you that I’ll face forward.
I’ll wipe away my tears.

aruite yukou kimeta michi
utatte yukou
inori wo hibikase youni
sotto chikau yo yume wo kanaeru
kimi to nakama ni
yakusoku

I’ll walk on the road I’ve decided on,
I’ll sing
so my prayers will resound.
I gently vow to you that I will make my dreams come true.
With you and my friends…
I make this promise.


Awwww… this song… it’s so touching! Especially when it was sung in the anime. I love it~<3
