Metamorphoze


揺れる鼓動が僕を縛りつける
君の破片が深い闇に落ちた
逃げることさえ許されない世界で
君のことだけは守りたかったのに

今も… 今でも誰かの優しい言葉より
君の、君だけの唇にそっと触れたい

果てしないこの宙もいつかは終わりを告げる
この瞳に焼きついた君を忘れはしない

君の記憶がどんなに優しい言葉より
誰も消せない僕の痛みを消してくれる

今は、何度も君の名を叫び続けた

僕らは何度も過ちを繰り返すけれど
君との交わした約束だけは守りたい

今も… 今でも誰かの優しい言葉より
君をこの腕でもう一度抱きしめたい

今も君のため僕は戦い続けるよ
君ともう一度、笑い合えるその日まで


yureru kodou ga boku wo shibari tsukeru
kimi no kakera ga fukai yami ni ochita
nigeru koto sae yurusarenai sekai de
kimi no koto dake wa mamoritakatta no ni

ima mo… ima demo dareka no yasashii kotoba yori
kimi no, kimi dake no kuchibiro ni sotto furetai

hateshinai kono sora(chuu) mo itsuka wa owari wo tsugeru
kono me(hitomi) ni yakitsuita kimi wo wasure wa shinai

kimi no kioku ga donna ni yasashii kotoba yori
dare mo kesenai boku no itami wo keshite kureru

kimi to mou ichido, warai aeru sono hi made


My wavering heartbeat freezes me in place
The pieces of you fell into deep darkness
In this world where even running away is forbidden
All I wanted was to protect you

Now… even now, more than hearing someone’s kind words
I want to gently touch your lips, only yours

Even this boundless sky will someday come to an end1
Burned into my eyes, I will never forget you2

The memory of you, more than hearing someone’s kind words
erases the pain that no one else can erase

Now, I was screaming your name over and over

We will repeat our mistakes over and over
but I just want to keep the promise I made to you

Now… even now, more than hearing someone’s kind words
I want to hold you once more in my arms

Even now I will keep on fighting for your sake
Until the day when we can meet once more with a smile
