Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Anata ga koko o dete yuku hi
nagai yume ga kanatta n da ne
Sukoshi gikochinai yosooi de
kibō ni afureta me o shite'ta

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The day you left here
you fulfilled a long dream.
Stiffly dressed
your eyes were filled with hope.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Ganbatte oite to kaketa kotoba
watashi wa muri shite waratte ita
Anata ni kizukarenai yō ni
sotto mesen o sorasu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The words you told me, to do my best,
I forced a smile.
So that you wouldn't notice,
I looked the other way.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Mawari no hito wa kagayaite ite
jibun dake usuyogorete miete shimau
Sore de mo akirametaku nakatta
Ano koro no futari torimodoshitai kara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The people around me were shining,
while only I look unclean.
Even so, I didn't want to give up, because
I wanted to go back to how the two of us were back then.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Yatto ima anata ni oitsukeru
Keshite mijikai jikan ja nakatta keredo
ano toki muri shite kuchi ni shita kotoba ga
sunao na kimochi ni kawaru Omedetō

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Now at last I can catch up to you.
It was by no means a short time, but
the words I forced myself to say back then
have changed into a genuine feeling. Congratulations.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Ichiban ni yorokonde kureru
anata o mite wakatta n da
Sabishikatta no wa watashi dake ja nai
Sono egao ga subete o oshiete kureta

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
You were the first to be glad for me,
and seeing you, I understood.
I wasn't the only one who was lonely.
That smile told me everything.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Nagai aida matasete gomen ne
Tochū de saki ga mienai koto mo atta
Ano toki tagai ni surechigatta mesen
anata mo awaserarenaide ita n da

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Sorry for keeping you waiting so long.
There were even times along the way when I couldn't see the way ahead.
When we both diverted our eyes that time,
you couldn't look at me either.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Yatto ima anata ni oitsukeru
Keshite mijikai michinori ja nakatta
Ano toki muri shite tokete itta kotoba ga
anata no kuchi kara imi o kaete

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Now at last I'll catch up to you.
It was by no means a short journey.
Those words that time that I could barely say,
you say them with your own lips with a new meaning.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Watashi no kokoro ni todoku

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
It reaches my heart.
