Japanese RōmajiEdit

Onaji egao shiteta
Sonna bokura mo ikunen wo kasanesugite
Surechigau keshiki wo
Ukeirerarezu ni mogaiteru

Muda na puraido sutesari
Kono sekai ni yasashisa wo

Yuuki wo misetsukete mo tsuyogatte mo
Hitori dewa ikirarenai
Ano hi no yakusoku nara
Kokoro no fukaku ni nokotteiru yo ima demo

Wakarete mata deai
Arata na michi ni hikari mitsuke arukidasu
Umarete kara zutto
Kurikaesu koto de tsunagatteku

Itsunoma ni kimi to boku mo
Sorezore mirai wo te ni shite

I Gotta Say
Tooku hanareteite mo aenakute mo
Tsuyoi kizuna wa aru kara
"Yume ga kanaimasu youni"
Kokoro no soko kara inotteiru yo

Kokoro no fukaku ni nokotteiru yo

As life goes on...
Wasurecha ikenai kara Yeah
Don't let it go...
Kono hiroi daichi to nakama-tachi no koto

English TranslationEdit

While we wore the same smiles,
We passed through the years together.
The sceneries kept changing,
And we struggled to accept it.

I throw away my useless pride.
May kindness come to this world.

I Gotta Say
Even if I show off my bravery and my strength,
I can't survive alone.
Our promise from that day,
It remains firmly in my heart, even now.

New encounters come after each farewell.
I find light down a new path, and move on.
Since the day I was born,
That has been the way my life is molded.

Before we realized it,
We have both found our own futures.

I Gotta Say
Even if you are far away where I can't meet you,
There's a resilient bond between us.
"May my dreams come true."
I am praying from the bottom of my heart.
We're friends forever.
We pledged to meet again someday,
Crossed our little fingers,
And set out that day,
For unseen destinations,
And though we may be lost,
We are making progress,
Always.

Through the changing seasons,
And this fleeting moment,
I listen to these nostalgic melodies.
Even when I become an adult,
Some things won't fade,
Like our precious memories.

I Gotta Say
Even if I show off my bravery and my strength,
I can't survive alone.
Our promise from that day,
It remains firmly in my heart.

As life goes on...
I mustn't forget, yeah.
Don't let it go...
I remember this vast land and my friends.
