Even though we are separated in distant places, let our voice come (and reach)
And when you're lost, follow the direction of the sound!

If you're always smiling (smiling), surely good luck will come to your door
Even your crying eyes will be able to rejoice.

We managed to find ourselves in this suffocating world
Let's see this colorful world together

For someone like you who works hard, there will be times when you hit the wall.,
But okay, you don't have to endure it alone

If you laugh, I will laugh too
Round and round, it will reach someone again.

Even though we are separated in distant places, let our voice come (and reach)
And when you're lost, follow the direction of the sound!

When the season changes on these new days, I am alone on the busy platform of the train.
I went up and down (up and down)

My heart is stunned by the environment I have not grown accustomed to.
I can't walk well on busy streets
Look through the gaps between the buildings, the sky is so wide today.

Wipe away the tears that I can't show anyone and keep walking
The wind starts to blow, and my hair moves along. The future is starting

If you sing, I will sing too
It's okay, even if you're not good at it. Let me hear your voice

Every sound is different
I will find you even in places where the light cannot reach
If you laugh, I will laugh too

Round and round, it will reach someone again.
Even though we are separated in distant places, let our voice come (and reach)

And when you're lost, follow the direction of the sound! follow the direction of the sound!
