<poem>
無意識のうちに 捉えたその景色は ずっと待ち望んでいた 未来じゃなく 私の知らない 見たこともない笑顔 釘付けになったまま 立ち尽くした てんでんばらばら ふたつの世界 はぐれてく ぜんぜんばらばら 矛盾している想い 抑え切れなくなる がむしゃらな心で いつの日か あなたを跳び越して 前へ進め やみくもな鼓動が いつの間に 私を追い越して 絡まった気持ち 走れ走れ いつも出来ることはひとつ 速く速く速く その向こうへ

<poem>
Muishiki no uchi ni toraeta sono keshiki wa Zutto machi nozonda ita Mirai ja naku Watashi no shiranai mita koto mo nai egao Kugizuke ni natta mama Tachi tsukushita Tenden barabara Futatsu no sekai Hagurete ku Zenzen barabara Mujun shite iru omoi Osae kire naku naru Gamushara no kokoro de Itsuno hi ka Anata wo tobikoshite Mae he susume Yamikumo na kodou ga Itsuno ma ni Watashi wo oikoshi te Karamatta kimochi Hashire hashire Itsumo dekiru koto wa hitotsu Hayaku hayaku hayaku Sono mukou he



The scene I subconsciously caught sight of
Wasn't the future
I'd been waiting for all along

It was a smiling face I didn't know and had never seen
I was riveted, and stood
Rooted to the spot

The two worlds are straying away from each other
in different directions

I cannot hold these completely scattered
ambivalent feelings

With a reckless heart,
I'll leap right over you
and move forward someday

Before I knew it,
My random heartbeat
Had passed me by,
Leaving my emotions tangled

Run, run
There's always just one thing you can do

Hurry, hurry, hurry
To the other side

Japanese Rōmaji
English Translation
Muishiki no uchi ni

Toraeta sono keshiki wa

Zutto machinozonde ita

Mirai ja naku

The scenery I caught

While I was unconscious

Isn’t the future

I’d always been waiting for.

Watashi no shiranai

Mita koto mo nai egao

Kugizuke ni natta mama

Tachitsukushita

Seeing the smile I don’t know

And haven’t seen before,

I stood still,

As though stapled down.

Tenden barabara

Futatsu no sekai

Hagureteku

Scattered into bits,

The two worlds

Stray from each other.

Zenzen barabara

Mujun shite iru omoi

Osaekirenaku naru

Completely scattered,

My ambivalent feelings

Are too much to control.

Gamushara na kokoro de

Itsu no hi ka

Anata wo tobikoshite

Mae e susume

With my reckless heart,

Someday,

I’ll leap over you

And move forward.

Yamikumo na kodou ga

Itsu no ma ni

Watashi wo oikoshite

Karamatta kimochi

Before I knew it,

My clouded heartbeat

Passed me by,

And my feelings were tangled.

Hashire hashire

Itsumo dekiru koto wa hitotsu

Hayaku hayaku hayaku

Sono mukou e

Run, run!

It’s the one thing I can always do.

Quickly, quickly, quickly,

To that other side!

Hontou no kanjou

Kakushitsuzukete itara

Ki ga tsukeba jibun demo

Miushinatte

If I continue to hide

My true feelings,

I’ll lose sight of myself

Before I come to.

Warikireteru you de

Warikirenai jijitsu ga

Kono mune no oku de

Mada uzuiteru yo

It’s like it’s divisible,

But the fact that it’s not

Is still throbbing

Deep in this chest of mine.

Tenden barabara

Tsunaida hibi ga

Hodoketeku

Scattered into bits,

The days that were connected

Come untied.

Zenzen barabara

Aihan shiteru kotae

Zenbu tadashii kedo

Completely scattered,

The conflicting answers

Are all correct, but…

Shakariki na kyou demo

Itsu no hi ka

Anata wo tobikoshite

Mae e susume

Even though I’m overeager today,

Someday,

I’ll leap over you

And move forward.

Hachamecha na yume sae

Itsu no ma ni

Watashi wo oikoshite

Karamatta kimochi

Before I knew it,

Even my nonsensical dreams

Passed me by,

And my feelings were tangled.

Hashire hashire

Itsumo dekiru koto wa hitotsu

Hayaku hayaku hayaku

Sono mukou e

Run, run!

It’s the one thing I can always do.

Quickly, quickly, quickly,

To that other side!

Gamushara na kokoro de

Itsu no hi ka

Anata wo tobikoshite

Mae e susume

With my reckless heart,

Someday,

I’ll leap over you

And move forward.

Yamikumo na kodou ga

Itsu no ma ni

Watashi wo oikoshite

Before I knew it,

My clouded heartbeat

Passed me by.

Shakariki na kyou demo

Itsu no hi ka

Anata wo tobikoshite

Mae e susume

Even though I’m overeager today,

Someday,

I’ll leap over you

And move forward.

Hachamecha na yume sae

Itsu no ma ni

Watashi wo oikoshite

Karamatta kimochi

Before I knew it,

Even my nonsensical dreams

Passed me by,

And my feelings were tangled.

Hashire hashire

Itsumo dekiru koto wa hitotsu

Hayaku hayaku hayaku

Sono mukou e

Run, run!

It’s the one thing I can always do.

Quickly, quickly, quickly,

To that other side!
