Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
 Only sixteen Kon'ya 
 Mujun-darake no jiyuu ni 
 Oware-nagara hashiridasu 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Only sixteen, this night
As I'm chased by a freedom that's full of contradictions
I start to run

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
 Nan ni mo shibaretaku nai tte sakebi-nagara 
 Kizuna motomete 'ru hey 
 Mamorareru dake ja naku 
 Dare ka wo mamoritai 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
As I yell, "I don't want to be bound by anything,"
I'm searching for a bond, hey
I don't just want to be protected
I want someone to protect

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
 Give me a reason to show you 
 Riyuu mo naku hohoemu tabi ni 
 (won't you) Tell me why I should try to 
 Ashita wo mitsumeyou to shinaide 
 Give me a reason to love you 
 Subete no housoku uragitte miseru 
 Tatoe sore ga unmei demo 
   (It'll be alright)

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Give me a reason to show you
Even without a reason, I still smile every time
(won't you) Tell me why I should try to
Don't try to set your sights upon tomorrow
Give me a reason to love you
I'll break all of the rules and I'll show you that
Even if it's my fate to do so
   (It'll be alright)

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
 Hitori dake no chikai 
 Gyun to sasayaide nemuru 
 Mou sukoshi dake sunao demo ii 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The promise was only yours to make
You whispered it intensely before you slept
Would've been nice if only you'd been a bit more frank

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
 Yatto mitsuketa kotae wa sugata wo kae 
 Watashi wo madowasu hey 
 Kuyashii hodo tooku kara 
 Karakawarete 'ru mitai 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Now that you've finally found your answer, you've changed
It's confusing me, hey
Seems as if you're teasing me from so far away
It's irritating me

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
 Give me a reason to show you 
 Itsu ka kimi ni oitsukitai 
 (won't you) Tell me why I should try to 
 Chikazuku hodo ni tooku naru mitai da 
 Give me a reason to love you 
 Ima wa hitori ni shinaide 
 If I had you 
 Kono yoru mo kowaku nai no ni 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Give me a reason to show you
I want to catch up with you someday
(won't you) Tell me why I should try to
As I draw nearer to you, it seems as if you're moving farther and farther away
Give me a reason to love you
Don't leave me alone now
If I had you,
Even this evening wouldn't be so scary

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
 Give me a reason to show you 
 Furikaeri-nagara kita michi 
 (won't you) Tell me why I should try to 
 Mou tachidomaru koto wo osorenai yo 
 Give me a reason to love you 
 Honto wa wake nante iranai 
 Kodomo-mitai ni koe wo agete 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Give me a reason to show you
I've come to this road  as I turn around
(won't you) Tell me why I should try to
I'm no longer afraid of standing still
Give me a reason to love you
Really, I don't need anything like a reason
Like children, raise your voice, and then,

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
 Hashirou

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Let's run
