Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Always fumbling in the dark on my own,
I laugh as I talk about tomorrow.
Funny, isn't it?

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"It's cold tonight," I say, 
holding two cans of hot coffee
on the fire escape, our shadows lined up
under the sky above

I can feel your warmth
That's right, now and forever

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Now matter how pretty the words I use
to say "I won't hurt anyone,"
It doesn't mean I've gotten the hang of
Kindness or lying.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
konna ni sewashinai sekai de
ai toka shiranai koto bakari de
dakedo itsukara ka
mune ni saku hana no tame ni

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
In such a restless world as this
Love is completelty unknown,
But I take a breath 
for the flower that will someday
bloom in my heart.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Now, even on days when all around us
is lost in darkness,
the night light gently lights
the profile of your face.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Without losing sight of that small light,
I'll walk on
And now, it's you[1]

tsutsunda jouyatou

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Softly I call your name in my heart
time and again to keep from crying.
The nightlight that is always by my side,
lighting up tomorrow.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
hurikaeru kimi ha
yawarakai hikari datta
sou ima mo itsudemo


Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
When you looked over your shoulder, 
and there was a soft light
Yes, now and forever

[1] "kimi wo" is a sort of tacked on at the end of the stanza. I interpretted as "And now it's you I won't lose sight of." There are probably other ways to translate it though.
