目覚めては繰り返す 眠い朝は
襟のタイをきつく締め
教室のドアくぐると
ほんの少し胸を張って歩き出せる
そんな日常に吹き抜ける風
聞こえた気がした
感じた気がしたんだ
震え出す今この胸で
もう来る気がした
記憶の星が消え去ってくのを見送った
手を振ったよかったね、と
廊下の隅見下ろす 掃除の途中
おかしなものだと思う
あたしの中の時は止まってるのに
違う日々を生きてるように
埃は雪のように降り積む
待ってる気がした
呼んでる気がしたんだ
震え出す今この時が
見つけた気がした
失われた記憶が呼び覚ました
物語  永遠の  その終わり
いつの間にか駆けだしてた
あなたに手を引かれてた
昨日は遠く 明日はすぐ
そんな当たり前に心が踊った
聞こえた気がした
感じた気がしたんだ
震え出す今この胸で
もう来る気がした
幾千の朝を越え 新しい陽が
待ってる気がした
呼んでる気がしたんだ
震え出す今この胸で
見つけた気がした
記憶の夢のように消え去れる日を見送った
手を振ったありがとう、と

Mezamete wa kurikaesu nemui asa wa
Eri no tai wo kitsuku shime
Kyoushitsu no doa kuguru to hon no sukoshi
Mune wo hatte aruki daseru
Sonnna nichijou ni fuki nukeru kaze

Kikoeta kiga shita
Kanjita kiga shitanda
Furue dasu ima kono mune de
Mou kuru kiga shita
Ikuoku no hoshi ga kie satteku no wo
Miokutta te wo futta
Yokatta ne, to

Rouka no sumimiorusu souji no tochuu
Okashina monoda to omou
Atashi no naka no toki wa tomatteru no ni
Chigau hibi wo ikiteru you ni
Hokori wa yuki no you ni furi tsumu

Matteru kiga shita

Furue dasu ima kono toki ga
Mitsuketa kiga shita
Ushinawareta kioku ga yobi samashita

Itsu no manika kake dashita
Anata ni te wo hikareta
Kinou wa tooku ashita wa sugu
Sonna atarimae ni kokoro ga odotta

Kikoeta kiga shita

Furue dasu ima kono mune de
Mou kuru kiga shita
Ikusen no wing wo koe atarashii hi ga

Furueteru kono tamashii ga
Mitsuketa kiga shita
Ikuoku no yume no you ni kiesareru hi wo
Miokutta te wo futta
Arigatou, to

I wake up and it all starts again, a sleepy morning
I tie the tie tightly around my neck.
And when I walk through the classroom door,
I can be confident and move on.
Like a wind that blew my daily life ...

I had the feeling of having heard,
The feeling of having felt,
Now, shaking my heart
I felt something was coming soon,
The millions of stars start to disappear ...
I saw them go ... I moved my hands ...
And I demonstrated that it was good.

Cleaning the corner of the corridor, I see the floor,
I find something and think how strange it was ...
If the time inside me is stopped
But it feels like I'm living another life ...
My pride is gone like the falling snow ...

I thought I was waiting for you
I thought I was calling you ...
Now with that shaky weather ...
I thought I had found…
I remembered the lost memories ...
Stories ...
With eternity
And that ending….

Since when did I run?
I was being taken by you ...
The "yesterday" is far away and the "tomorrow" is getting closer and closer.
Realizing this thing obviously my feelings tremble ...

Announcement

I had the feeling of having heard,
The feeling of having felt,
Now, with that trembling heart
I thought you would be here soon,
Many mornings have passed and new days arrive ...

I thought I was waiting for you ...
I thought you were calling me ...
This trembling soul of mine ...
I think I found it
Like my millions of dreams, the days fade away ...
I saw them go ... I moved my hands ...
And I showed gratitude.
