Lyrics from
moetsukita you ni shizumu
yuuhi sae  hitori sa
daiichi ni mo,  unabara ni mo
dakareru  koto naku

Lyrics from
Even the setting sun that sinks like it was burning out
is alone,
unable to embrace
the earth or the deep seas.

Lyrics from
fukai kokoro no soko de
nemurasete  iru no ni
FUI wo tsuku  akane'iro no [1]
setsunai jounetsu

Lyrics from
Though it's been sleeping
at the bottom of my heart,
the red, painful passion [1]
takes me by surprise.

Lyrics from
KIMI no namida miru tabi
tamaranaku natte
ushiro kara  omoikiri
dakishimetaku naru

Lyrics from
Whenever I see your tears,
I can't stand it.
It makes me want to
hold you close from behind.

Lyrics from
kowareru hodo SUKI sa
donna kotoba mo  tarinai
kesshite koe ni shinai
itoshisa mo aru n' da

Lyrics from
I love you to the point it breaks me.
No kind of words are enough,
because I also have a love
that I can never give voice to.

umareochita dake de wa
otoko ni wa  narenai
hontou no  tsuyosa wa kitto

Can't become a man
just by being born.
True strength surely
starts with love.

KIMI no namida no saki ni
egao ga aru nara
tanomoshii  YATSU no mama

If there's a smile
beyond your tears,
I'll watch over you
like the dependable guy I am.

donna kotoba mo  tarinai
kanawanai koi naraba
shiawase wo  negau dake sa

Lyrics from
I love you to the point it breaks me.
No kind of words are enough.
If it's a love that can't be granted,
then I'll wish only for your happiness.

Lyrics from
yuuhi ga mata shizumu
jounetsu wo daita mama
hitoshirezu  nemuri tsuku

Lyrics from
The setting sun sinks again
As it embraced its passion
It reaches its inward rest
Even though it's painful...always
