Lyrics from
Kodomo-tachi ga sora ni mukai ryoute wo hiroge
Tori ya kumo ya yume made mo  tsukamou to shiteiru
Sono sugata wa  kinou made no nani mo shiranai watashi
Anata ni  kono yubi ga todoku to shinjiteita
Sora to daichi ga  fureau kanata
Kako kara no tabibito wo  yonderu michi
Anata ni totte watashi  tada no toorisugari
Chotto furimuite mita dake no  ihoujin

Lyrics from
The children extend their hands towards the sky,
as if to grasp ahold of the birds, clouds and dreams
I had known nothing 'till yesterday,
and believed that I could reach you with these fingers.
Travellers from the past call up a path
of where the sky meets the earth
To me, you were just someone passing by
Someone who turned back to look for a short while, a foreigner

Lyrics from
Ichiba e yuku hito no nami ni  karada wo azuke
Ishidatami no machikado wo  yura yura to samayou
Inori no koe  hizume no oto  utau you na zawameki
Watashi wo okizari ni  sugite yuku shiroi asa
Jikan ryokou ga kokoro no kizu wo
Naze kashira umete yuku  fushigi na michi
Sayonara dake no tegami  mayoi tsuzukete kaki
Ato wa kanashimi wo moteamasu  ihoujin
Ato wa kanashimi wo moteamasu  ihoujin

Lyrics from
Entrusting my body to the waves of people going to market,
I waited, hesitatingly, on a cobblestone street corner
Voices in prayer, and the sound of hoofs- a clamor which was very much like singing
left me behind in the white dawn which I had passed.
For some reason, time travel
Buried the wounds of my heart- a strange path
Bewildered, I continue to write a letter which comprised of nothing but good-byes
Afterwards you leave me with too much sadness  foreigner
Afterwards you leave me with too much sadness  foreigner
