Lyrics Edit

Please be aware that the following is for the TV-size version of the song as it was originally featured in the anime/video game series.
Japanese Kanji Japanese Rōmaji English Translation
mitomete ita okubyou na kako
wakaranai mama ni kowagatte ita
ushiro no jibun ga genjitsu wo ima ni utsusu
Cloudy memories
Of the way it used to be
Search for answers I can't see
Looking back in time
All the images they tell me where I'm going
They guide me
儚い心 乱して
ikutsu mono sora wo kaita koko wa kitto
hakanai kokoro midashite
Look to the skies it's a new day, every day
Feeling so confused
But I know your heart is true
Please trust in me
気付く弱い私 君がいれば
yume de takaku tonda karada wa
donna fuan matotte mo furiharatte iku
nemuru chiisana omoi hirogari dashite
kizuku yowai watashi kimi ga ireba
Flying so high up in the sky
I'm caught up in the dream
My tears they fade away
It's my reality
And now I know the reason why
I've got to make a change
Grow stronger every day
I need you here with me
kurai sekai tsuyoku ireta
nagai yume miru kokoro wa sou eien de
I'm trapped in the dark but I'll never give in
I gotta break free, escape this endless nightmare
I won't stop
I wanna always be with you
I give you everything I have
I wanna always be with you
I give you everything I have
I wanna always be with you
I give you everything I have
