English Lyrics:

I try to escape before my shadow is fully cast.
Flying away, not bothering to notice my wings have fallen off.
A sweet scent from far, far away drifts across the street corner.
And I hear a familiar voice crying out.
How much father can we make it, with only the night wind's fleeting hopes to carry us?
The world trembles like it wants to stop us,
Taking everything away
I'm not dreaming any more,
And we haven't done anything yet, but still we'll keep going!

Japanese Lyrics:

Senaka no kage ga nobikiru sono aima ni nigeru
Hagare ochita hane ni mo kizukazu ni tobu
Machikado amai nioi ryuusenn touku mukou kara
Dokoka de kita you na nakigoe
Yokaze ga hakobu awai kibou wo nosete
Dokomade yukeru ka
Sore wo kobamuyou ni sekai wa yurete
Subete wo ubaisaru
Yume nara sameta
Dakedo bokura wa mada nanimo shiteinai susumu
