Lyrics from
O-kiniiri no kutsu no you ni    donna toki mo issho datta
Itsumo haite itara sugu ni makkuro ni nari
Sono tabi araeba kirei ni naru kedo    sono bun hayaku dame ni natte
Ima ha hakenaku natte shimatta

Lyrics from
Just like my favorite shoes, we were together no matter when
When I wore them, they always turned pitch black right away
Each time I washed them, they'd get clean, but in return they got wrecked quickly
And now I can't wear them at all

Lyrics from
Hoka no kutsu mo haite mite
Hajimete sono kutsu no hakigokochi no yosa ga wakattanda

Lyrics from
I tried wearing other shoes
And for the first time, I understood how comfortable those shoes were
At long last

Lyrics from
Kimi no kawari nante inai kara
Kono saki ni atta kimi to tsukau hazu datta jikan ha
Nanika areba kimi to kurabetari, sugu ni omoidaseru uchi ha
Doushitemo umaranai    umerarenai

Lyrics from
Because there's no one who can replace you
The time in the future I'd planned on spending with you
Meanwhile, if there's something, I compare it to you, and I can remember you right away
No matter what I do, I won't fill up--I just can't

Lyrics from
Soba ni itai    tonari ni ite    kimi shika inai    zutto futari de

Lyrics from
I want to be by you, nobody but you can be next to me, together forever

Lyrics from
Kimi wo ushinaitaku nakatta    sore ha tashika
Nanoni doushite anna uso wo tsuitan darou?
"Gomen ne"
Douji ha "Kore ga besuto da" tte omotta boku ha machigai datta?
Kimi wo sugoku kizutsukete shimatta

Lyrics from
I hadn't wanted to lose you, that's for certain
So then why did I tell a lie like that?
"I'm sorry"
Was I, who thought at the time, "This is for the best," wrong?
I ended up hurting you badly

Lyrics from
Kokoro ha 'boku ni kureta kimi no kotoba, ironna hyoujou'
Karada ha ima demo 'yasashisa' oboeteru

Lyrics from
My heart remembers 'the words you gave me, and various expressions'
My body, even now, remembers 'kindness'

Lyrics from
Kimi no kanashimu kao ga kukkiri to souzou de kite shimau
Marude kinou no koto ka no you ni
Sore ha 'kimi no koto wo yoku shitteru kono boku no tokken' ga
Urame ni dete    koukai ga boku wo semeru

Lyrics from
My mind's eye clearly pictures your grieving face
It's just like how it was yesterday
I had thought 'It's my privilege, since I know you so well'
But it backfired, and regrets assail me

Lyrics from
Jikan ga kaiketsu-shite kureru tte?    Dondon kabe tsukuru kuse ni!
"Yappa kimi ja nakya dame de"
Ano koro no futari ni ha mou modorenai    mou ichido yarinaosu yori
Ima atarashiku, rashiku hajimereba ii

Lyrics from
You tell me time will settle everything? And here you're steadily building a forcefield!
"I knew it--it can't be anyone but you, and..."
We can't go back anymore to what we were back then, so rather than doing it over again,
Let's now start from the beginning as who we are

Lyrics from
Saikou no paatonaa    taisetsu na paatonaa
Itsumademo paatonaa    kawarazu ni paatonaa

Lyrics from
The ultimate partner, my precious partner
You're forever my partner, without changing, my partner
