afureru kanjou ga tomaranai

I can't hold back these feelings

kienai kinou ga owarou to shite
hitomi tojireba ima demo sou kimi ga
omoide wa itsudemo mujaki na mama de
hitori no kurashi mada narenakute

Right before I say goodbye to my lingering past
I close my eyes, and you're still there in my memories, as innocent as you always were
I'm still not used to being on my own

nomikomaresou na jidai ni deatta kiseki
ano koro wa tada soba ni iru dake de aiseru to omotteita

I'm starting to come to terms with the paths I took back then, when I thought I could love you just by having you there

afureru kanjou ga tomaranai
onaji yume toki no naka zutto daiteitakatta

I can't hold back these feelings
Back when we shared the same dream, I never wanted to let you go

nagareru machinami akaku someteku
itami mo kizukeba shiawase ni kawaru
tsuyogari dake ga sou ikiteku akashi
rousoku no hi no you ni kokoro tomosu

The sunset casts a red glow over the bustling street
When I realise I'm hurt, I come to see it as a blessing
Putting on a brave face is proof that I'm alive
Lighting up my heart like a candle's flame

hito wa namida wo fuku tabi hito wo shitte
kimi ga kureta atatakai chikara yasashisa ni kaeteyuku yo

We strengthen our bonds as we wipe each other's tears
That's the gentle power you showed me so I can be kind to others

afureru kanjou ga tomaranai
kanjita mama ikiteku yo boku ga boku de aru tame ni
afureru yuujou ni iyasarete
meguriai ga shinjitsu da to itsuka wakariaeru yo

I can't hold back these feelings
I carry them with me through life, so I can find myself
I'm healed by the warmth of friendship
Someday we'll both understand that we're destined to meet again
