君の言葉は
夢の優しさかな?
嘘を全部
追いかくしてる
ずるいよね

旅立つ君に
覚めた背中見せて
聞いていたよ
一人戦うの?
ずるいよね

「買ってくるから」
追い越してゆく君の声
意地張って
強いふり
時を戻して
叫べばよかった?
行かないでと涙こぼしたら?
今はできる
どんなことも

言えなかった
1000の言葉を
遥かな
君の背中に送るよ
翼に替えて

言えなかった
1000の言葉は
傷ついた
君の背中によりそい
抱きしめる

夢の続きは
君を思いながら
あの日のこと
忘れたふりして
ずるいよね

「手紙を書くから」
視線逸らした君の声
意地張って
強いふり
時を戻して
起こればよかった?
待てないよと肩を落としたら?
今は出来る
どんなことも

聞こえてる?
1000の言葉を
見えない
君の背中に送るよ
翼に替えて

聞こえてる?
1000の言葉は
疲れた
君の背中に寄り添い
抱きしめる

言えなかった
1000の言葉を
Lalalala…
君の背中に送るよ
翼に替えて

聞こえてる?
1000の言葉は
Lalalala…
君の背中に寄り添い
Lalalalala…

English Translation

Are those words of yours
Just a kindness of the dream?
It even conceals
All the lies
It's unfair

Giving you the cold back
To the departing you
I was listening
You're fighting alone?
It's unfair

"I'll return home"
Your voice bypasses me
I was stubborn
And acted all tough
As I turn back time
Should I have called you?
What if I shed tears asking you not to go?
I can finally do
Anything now

I couldn't say
Those 1000 words
I'll send them to
Your distant back
As wings

Those 1000 words
I couldn't say
Will lean against your
Injured back
And embrace you

The dream continues as
I think of you
Pretending to forget about
Those days
It's unfair

"I'll write you a letter"
Your voice seems to look away
I was stubborn
And acted all tough
As I turn back time
Should I have gotten upset at you?
What if I dropped my shoulders telling you I couldn't wait?
I can finally do
Anything now

Can you hear it?
Those 1000 words
I'll send them to
Your unseen back
As wings

Can you hear it?
Those 1000 words
Will lean against your
Tired back
And embrace you

Those 1000 words
I couldn't say
Lalalala…
I'll send them to your back
As wings

Can you hear it?
Those 1000 words
Lalalala…
They'll lean against your back
Lalalalala…

Official English Version

I know that you’re hiding things
Using gentle words to shelter me
Your words were like a dream
But dreams could never fool me
Not that easily

I acted so distant then
Didn’t say goodbye before you left
But I was listening
You’ll fight your battles far from me
Far too easily

"Save your tears 'cause I’ll come back"
I could hear that you whispered
As you walked through that door
But still I swore to hide the pain
When I turn back the pages

Shouting might’ve been the answer
What if I’d cried my eyes out
And begged you not to depart?
But now I’m not afraid to say what’s in my heart

Though a thousand words
Have never been spoken,
They’ll fly to you
Crossing over the time
And distance holding you
Suspended on silver wings

And a thousand words
One thousand confessions
Will cradle you
Making all of the pain you feel seem far away
They’ll hold you forever

The dream isn’t over yet
Though I often say I can forget,
I still relive that day
You’ve been there with me all the way
I still hear you say…

"Wait for me, I’ll write you letters"
I could see how you stammered
With your eyes to the floor
But still I swore to hide the doubt
When I turn back the pages

Anger might've been the answer
What if I’d hung my head
And said that I couldn’t wait?
But now I’m strong enough to know it’s not too late

'Cause a thousand words
Call out through the ages
They’ll fly to you
Even though I can’t see
I know they’re reaching you
Suspended on silver wings

Oh, a thousand words
One thousand embraces
Will cradle you
Making all of your weary days seem far away
They’ll hold you forever

Oh, a thousand words (A thousand words)
Have never been spoken (Oh yeah)
They’ll fly to you
They’ll carry you home (Carry you home)
And back into my arms
Suspended on silver wings (On silver wings)

And a thousand words (Oh)
Call out through the ages (Call through the ages)
They’ll cradle you (Oh yeah)
Turning all of the lonely years to only days (Only days)
They’ll hold you forever

Oh, a thousand words…
