Lyrics from
zutto oboeteiru yo  wasureta FURIshitete mo
hatasenai mama owatta  yakusoku datta

Lyrics from
i have always remembered it, though i may pretend to have forgotten
it ended without the promise being fulfilled

Lyrics from
ano koro watashitachi wa  muchi de kegarenakute
dakedo  sono junsuisa ga  zankoku datta

Lyrics from
we were ignorant and innocent back then
however, that purity came at a cruel price

Lyrics from
ima nara wakaru sono imi  ima nara wakaru sono tsumi
dare ni mo hanasenakute  mune ni himeta

Lyrics from
i know now the true meaning, i know now the sin
i've kept it to myself, unable to confide it to anyone

Lyrics from
ima de wa todokanai koe  ima de wa mienai egao
doushite  omoide dake KIREI ni naru

Lyrics from
now the voice will never be heard, now the smile will never be seen
why do only memories become beautiful?

Lyrics from
hikidashi no okubukaku  shimaikonda shashin ni
kore ijou namida no ato  nokosanu you ni

Lyrics from
to leave no more tear stains
on the photograph tucked away at the very back of the drawer

Lyrics from
anata ga mitsuzuketa mono  anata ga yumemiteta koto
watashi ga kawari ni naru  kanaeteyuku

Lyrics from
the thing you've always laid your eyes on, the thing you've always dreamt of
i'll grant it for you in your stead

Lyrics from
anata ga nozonda sekai  anata ga takushita omoi
tashika ni uketotta yo  aenakute mo...

Lyrics from
the world you desired, the feelings you left behind
i certainly accepted them, even if we may never meet...

Lyrics from
mou mayowanai  kitto mamoru kara
sotto  sotto  chikau

Lyrics from
i hesitate no more; i will honor my word
i softy, softly vowed
