Yurete iru omokage ni Bokura no negai Eien ni hateshinai
Hitomi tojita shikai no hate de Kimi no egao Sagashiteta
Koyoi mo mure o nashite Tatakaioeta senshi-tachi
Tooi sora no mukou ni tsuzuku Mihatenu yume ga Naiteru
Yurete iru omokage ni Bokura no negai Eien ni hateshinai Sou
Itsuka Ienakatta **kotoba Kyou wa Kimi ni sasagetai
Yurete iru omokage ni Michibikareru mama Kakenukete ikou
In the wavering facade, our wish is eternally endless
To live unnoticed, I deserted a happiness That was relying with pretense on and dancing to what was merely an illusion
At the edge of my sight with my eyes closed, I was searching for your smiling face
We embrace our dreams and run through the wavering facade, that's right This thought that I've kept shut in my chest since some other day, I'll grip it once more now
Warriors who finished fighting flocked together tonight How many times do we overcome, will we find the answer?
Continuing across the distant sky, a dream we can't see all the way through is weeping
In the wavering facade, our wish is eternally endless, that's right I'll hold back my many tears that would spill out and aim for tomorrow
What I didn't say in the days before, I want to present it to you today
While still being guided by the wavering facade, let's run through That's right, this thought that I've kept shut in my chest since some other day, I'll grip it once more now In the blinding times, surely we will go and walk from now on, too...will we?
