降り続く雨の中で
虚ろげに空を見上げていた
限り無く広がる果てに
自由を求める鳥の群れが鳴いていた

失った笑顔の数だけ
決して裏切ることは出来ないのだと
何度もそう心で呟いた

たとえどんなに傷ついても
どれだけ傷つくことになっても
誰にも僕は止められない

僅かな光を見つければいい
今は太陽があがらなくても
「降り出した雨はいつかやむんだね…」

歩き疲れていた君は
手の中で消えてゆく夢を抱いていた

この命が尽きたとしても
忘れられない大切なことがある
同じ時代を共に戦ったこと

たとえこの声が届かなくても
二度とあの頃に戻れなくても
叫び続ける僕がいる

どれだけ時代が流れても
体を揺さぶる想いのままに…
戦い続けた証は残るから

誰もが生まれてきた意味を
探し続けている

たとえどんなに傷ついても
どれだけ傷つくことになっても
誰にも僕は止められない

僅かな光を見つければいい
今は太陽があがらなくても
「降り出した雨はいつかやむんだね…」

[MARS version]

「そうさ、この雨はいつかやむんだね…」

[Love Letter version]

たとえこの声が届かなくても
二度とあの頃に戻れなくても
叫び続ける僕がいる

憶えてるよ出逢ったことを
あの日の笑顔は忘れないから
またいつかめぐり逢えるその日まで

またいつかめぐり逢えるその日まで…

In the continuously falling rain
I was staring vacantly up at the sky
In the limitlessly expanding bounds
a flock of birds seeking freedom were crying

I can never betray
all the lost smiles
I murmured over and over inside my heart

No matter how much I am hurt
or how many times
No one can stop me

Even if the sun won’t rise yet
it’s okay as long as I find a little light
“The falling rain has got to end some day…”

Tired from walking
you were cradling a vanishing dream in your hands

Even if my life runs out
there is something important that I can’t forget-
that we fought together through this era

Even if my voice doesn’t reach you
and I can never return to that time
I am still here shouting out to you

No matter how the ages flow by1
with these feelings that make my body tremble…
The proof that we kept on fighting will remain

Everyone keeps on searching for the meaning of their life

No matter how much I am hurt
or how many times
No one can stop me

Even if the sun won’t rise yet
it’s okay as long as I find a little light
“The falling rain has got to end some day…”

[MARS version]

“That’s right, this rain has got to end some day…”

[Love Letter version]

Even if my voice doesn’t reach you
and I can never return to that time
I am still here shouting out to you

I remember it, when we met
because I won’t forget your smile from that day
Until the day when our paths cross again…

Until the day when our paths cross again…
