Lyrics from
are wa itazura kaze no mori
shiro hane otte mayoikonda

Lyrics from
it was some trick in a windy forest
I followed white wings and got lost

Lyrics from
kanojo wa hakanai yume mitai
nijimu neiro mune ni sasatte

Lyrics from
she was like a passing dream
a fuzzy tone piercing my heart

Lyrics from
kimi no kawari ni dakishimeru
otoshite itta uta o
kuchi ni shitara kiete shimau kara
tenshi no kimi se ni shita mama

Lyrics from
instead of you I embrace
a lost song
for it vanishes as soon as it is sung
while you the angel are behind me

Lyrics from
sore wa hajimari ibara no michi
kizuato tsukete unazuku keredo

Lyrics from
that was the beginning, a thorny road
I acknowledge the scars that remain

Lyrics from
watashi wa kitanai aisenai
nara semete sotto utawasete

Lyrics from
however, I am dirty, I cannot love
in that case, at least let me sing softly

kimi no kawari ni dakishimeru
otosare shitta karada
watashi ni wa hane ga nai kara
shizumu machi aruite iku

Lyrics from
instead of you I embrace
a body once known and lost
I have no wings
so I walk the quiet town

Lyrics from
kimi ga kimi ja naku
watashi ga watashi de nakereba ...

Lyrics from
if you were not you
and I not I ...

Lyrics from
kimi no kawari ni dakishimeru
kanwanai sora o
sore de ii kara soba ni itai
sasatta mama

Lyrics from
instead of you I embrace
the unreachable sky
that is enough for me, so I want to be next to you
even while wounded
