Lyrics

Original Japanese

小さな足跡 たどっていくの [chiisana ashiato tadotteiku no]
色めいた 日だまりをかけぬけて [iromeita hidamari wo kakenukete]
わたしたち ふたりだけ [watashitachi futari dake]

メモリー [memory]
追いかけて ゆらめく 影ぼうし [oikakete yurameku kageboushi]

まだ帰らないで [mada kaeranaide]
見つめていて [mitsumeteite]

手を取って [te wo totte]
閉じて [tojite]
あしたを待つの [ashita wo matsu no]
迷子の心に 虹がかかる [maigo no kokoro ni niji ga kakaru]
きらめいた 翼をくれたよね [kirameita tsubasa wo kureta yo ne]
きのうから あしたへと [kinou kara ashita e to]

メモリー [memory]
さがしつづけ いざよう 水あかり [sagashi tuzuke izayou mizu akari]

まだ見守っていて [mada mimamotteite]
羽ばたくから [hanebataku kara]

手を取って [te wo totte]
閉じて [tojite]
あしたを待つの [ashita wo matsu no]
メモリー [memory]
追いかけて ゆらめく 影ぼうし [oikakete yurameku kageboushi]

まだ帰らないで [mada kaeranaide]
見つめていて [mitsumeteite]

手を取って [te wo totte]
ほほえんで [hohoende]
あしたを あしたを 待つの [ashita wo ashita wo matsu no]

English Translation

We strolled through the colors,
The sun shining on our steps
Reaching for the light to set us free

Memories
Our shadows fluttering as we chased on

Don't leave me here alone
I need you by my side

Take my hand
Close your eyes
I'm just hitting my stride
When all around was dark
You gave me wings of light
Telling me it would remain forever today

Memories
Shining off the streams below

Stay here next to me
As I spread my wings and fly

Take my hand
Close your eyes
I'm just hitting my stride
Memories
Our shadows fluttering as we chased on

Don't leave me here alone
I need you by my side

Take my hand
Lift your voice
And say it will remain forever today
