Lyrics from
Hontou no shiawase wo  sagashita toki ni
Aishi aisaretai to kangaeru you ni narimashita
Soshite atashi wa kimi no tsuyosa mo kakushigachi na yowasa mo kunde
Toki no nagare to sora no iro ni
Nani mo nozomi wa shinai you ni
Sugao de naite warau kimi ni ENAJII wo moyasu dake nandesu

Lyrics from
When we search for true happiness
We start to think about loving and being loved.
And then I start to to empathize with both your strength and the weaknesses you tend to hide.
The flow of time, and the color of the sky
so as to not wish for anything
You, who cries and laughs with your true face  is merely burning energy.

Lyrics from
Hontou no shiawase wa me ni utsurazu ni
Angai soba ni atte kizukazu ni ita no desu ga
Kajikamu yubi no motomeru mono ga  minareta sono te datta to shitte
Atashi wa kimi no MERODII ya sono
Tetsugaku ya kotoba   subete wo
Mamoru tame nara sukoshi kurai suru kurou mo itowanaindesu

Lyrics from
True happiness can't be seen by our eyes
But it is unexpectedly right by our sides.
What our cold-numbed fingers search for, are those familiar hands.
If it was a melody for you,
with philosphy, words and everything
I don't mind enduring a little hardship to protect them.

Lyrics from
Toki no nagare to sora no iro ni nani mo nozomi wa shinai you ni
Sugao de naite warau kimi no sono mama wo aishiteiru yue ni
Atashi wa kimi no MERODII ya sono
Tetsugaku ya kotoba  subete wo mamoritooshimasu
Kimi ga soko ni ikiteiru to iu shinjitsu dakede  koufuku nandesu

Lyrics from
The flow of time, and the color of the sky- so as to not wish for anything
Because I love you, who cries and laughs with your true face
If it was a melody for you,
I'd keep protecting those philosophies, words and everything.
With just the truth of you being alive near me, I'm happy.
