nee doushite mata
furikaetteru   ashi ato tadotte
nee are kara mou natsu wa
nando mo   megutte iru noni

Lyrics from
Hey, why am I still
looking back, following my own footprints?
Hey, since then Summer has
come around so many times but

Lyrics from
nani mo ka mo mada   oboete iru yo

Lyrics from
I still remember absolutely everything.

Lyrics from
namae yobu koe   nani ga nai KUSE
wasuretai no ni   wasuretaku nai

Lyrics from
That voice that calls my name. Even though there's nothing.
Although I want to forget, I do not want to forget.

Lyrics from
nee eranda michi wa  machigatte
nakatta kana   nante
nee dare ni tazunete mitemo
kotae wa   doko ni mo nai koto

Lyrics from
Hey, I wonder, the road I've chosen
isn't the wrong one, right?
Hey, no matter who I ask
the answer is nowhere to be found.

Lyrics from
iya ni naru hodo    wakatteru kara
itsuka kikasete    kimi no kuchi kara
shiawase dayo to   soshite waratte

Lyrics from
I understand, so much that I'm sick of it, so
someday tell me, in your own words*
that you're happy, and smile.

Lyrics from
omoi de wa sou    utsukushii mama
sotto kagi kake   shimatte okou

Lyrics from
Let's shut the memories away and lock them up
so they remain beautiful as they are.

Lyrics from
kono omoi yo  
kono omoi yo
sora he uchiagari

Lyrics from
These memories
these memories
shoot up to the sky

Lyrics from
hanabi no youni
hanabi no youni
utsukushiku chire

Lyrics from
Just like fireworks
just like fireworks
they scatter beautifully.

*the line is literally "from your mouth," but using this established English phrase is a lot closer to the connotation.
