In the familiar, dirty city
We walked with our heads down,
Unable to laugh in the same way
People hurry past
"Has your dream come true?"
I'm still struggling

I'd rather try living well now than go back to when
I was a kid
Cowardice is being born

I went out to a place where the sun shone
And held out my arms
And thought
Could I cross the sky?
I still can't see any wings to fly with
It's because it's not simple
That I can go on living

Just picking up a wet puppy
Made tears overflow
In a way that was funny

I want to be loved, I just want to be loved
I said,
But you can't just long for something

When I was a kid there were days
When I hurt my mother terribly
I want to
Change everything now

I went out to a place where the sun shone and
Gripped tightly with my hands
I can smash that place, that time,
And change my life

But there's no way I can tell you
Everything that's in my heart
It's because it's not simple
That I can go on living

I go out to a place where the sun shines
And open up a map, but
I know... you know...
You can't help getting lost
I can change my life

All the days that have passed
Have made me who I am now
It's because it's not simple that
I can go on living
