Japanese

見上げた この青空の色が眩しすぎて
忘れかけた大事なものさえ
僕らに気づかせてくれたね

目前に広がる世界は
小さな出来事 ひとつで
変わってゆくから・・・

吹き抜ける風を受けて
あの空の向こうへ
やわらかな風が今日も
僕らをすりぬけて

夢の続きがあるなら 迷わずに飛び出そう
両手を空にかざして 心のドアを開けて
明日を見つめて歩いてゆこう

Romaji

miageta kono aozora no iro ga mabushi sugite
wasure kaketa daiji na mono sae
bokura ni kizukasete kureta ne

me no mae ni hirogaru sekai wa
chiisana dekigoto hitotsu de
kawatte yuku kara...

fuki nukeru kaze wo ukete
ano sora no mukou e
yawaraka na kaze ga kyou mo
bokura wo surinukete

yume no tsuzuki ga aru nara mayowazu ni tobi dasou
ryoute wo sora ni kazashite kokoro no doa wo akete
asu wo mitsumete aruite yukou
