Nan kounen mo hanareta hoshi kara miru ima wa
tashika ni soko ni atta ano koro no bokura da
utsukushii no wa bokura no tabi no akashi
imi wa nai kedo nantonaku anshin shitanda
However many lightyears separate us from the stars we see now,
I'm sure ourselves from back then are up there.
Its beauty is proof of our journey
It didn't mean anything, but somehow, it gave me peace of mind.
aru shounen tankentai wa take yabu o nukete
dare mo shiranai himitsu no oka ni tadoritsuita
shiroi iki o hakidashite miageta shounen tachi wa
nani yori mo kirei na mono o mitsuketa
A boy's expedition party broke past the bamboo forest
And reached a secret hill nobody else knew about.
Spitting out white breath, the boys looked upward
And discovered something more beautiful than anything.
hitotsu futatsu mittsu yottsu itsutsu muttsu toshi o totta ima de wa
ano koro no boku ga hontou ni ita no ka sae wakaranakunatta
kirei na mono mite kirei da to omou koto ga
konnanimo muzukashii koto da to wa
One, two, three, four, five, six years passed until now
I really didn't even understand what was there back then.
Thinking the beautiful thing was just beautiful,
In this way, it's something more complicated...
te ni irete shimatta mono wa
mou te ni hairanai desho
annani hoshikatta noni
taishita koto naina
itsuka owari ga kite
soko de shitte shimau darou
nanimo te ni iretenai jibun ni
sore naraba zenbu
ira nai yo zenbu
boku wa miteitainda
The things I obtained,
Weren't they things I already had?
Although I wanted them,
They weren't important.
Someday, the end is coming
There, I'll understand completely
I don't get anything for myself.
If that's so,
Then there is nothing.
I want to see everything
I want to yearn for it
