真っ白な 雪道に 春風香る
Masshirona yukimichi ni harukaze kaoru
The wind blows on a white snowy road

わたしは なつかしい
Watashi wa natsukashii
And I’m nostalgic

あの街を 思い出す
Ano machi wo omoidasu
As I remember that town

叶えたい 夢もあった
Kanaetai yume mo atta
There was a dream I wanted to realize

変わりたい 自分もいた
Kawaritai jibun mo ita
There was something I wanted to change about me

今はただ なつかしい
Ima wa tada natsukashii
And I’m still nostalgic

あの人を 思い出す
Ano hito wo omoidasu
As I remember that person

誰かの歌が聞こえる
Dareka no uta ga kikoeru
Someone’s song can be heard

誰かを励ましてる
Dareka wo hagemashiteru
Cheering someone

誰かの笑顔が見える
Dareka no egao ga mieru
Someone’s smile can be seen

悲しみの向こう側に
Kanashimi no mukougawa ni
From the other side of sadness

花は 花は 花は咲く
Hana wa hana wa hana wa saku
Flowers, flowers, flowers will bloom

いつか生まれる君に
Itsuka umareru kimi ni
For you, who will be born one day

花は 花は 花は咲く
Hana wa hana wa hana wa saku
Flowers, flowers, flowers will bloom

わたしは何を残しただろう
Watashi wa nani wo nokoshita darou
I wonder what I leave behind

夜空の 向こうの 朝の気配に
Yozora no mukou no asa no kehai ni
At the first glimpse of dawn across the night sky

わたしは なつかしい
Watashi wa natsukashii
I’m nostalgic

あの日々を 思い出す
Ano hibi wo omoidasu
As I remember those days

傷ついて 傷つけて
Kizutsuite kizutsukete
Hurt, hurting your feelings

報われず 泣いたりして
Mukuwarezu naitari shite
I cried unrewarded tears

今はただ 愛おしい
Ima wa tada itooshii
I’m still heartbroken

あの人を 思い出す
Ano hito wo omoidasu
As I remember that person

誰かの想いが見える
Dareka no omoi ga mieru
Someone’s feelings can be seen

誰かと結ばれてる
Dareka to musubareteru
Linked to somebody

誰かの未来が見える
Dareka no mirai ga mieru
Someone’s future can be seen

悲しみの向こう側に
Kanashimi no mukougawa ni
From the other side of sadness

花は 花は 花は咲く
Hana wa hana wa hana wa saku
Flowers, flowers, flowers will bloom

いつか生まれる君に
Itsuka umareru kimi ni
For you, who will be born one day

花は 花は 花は咲く
Hana wa hana wa hana wa saku
Flowers, flowers, flowers will bloom

わたしは何を残しただろう
Watashi wa nani wo nokoshita darou
I wonder what I leave behind
(x2)

花は 花は 花は咲く
Hana wa hana wa hana wa saku
Flowers, flowers, flowers will bloom

いつか生まれる君に
Itsuka umareru kimi ni
For you, who will be born one day

花は 花は 花は咲く
Hana wa hana wa hana wa saku
Flowers, flowers, flowers will bloom

いつか恋する君のために
Itsuka koisuru kimi no tame ni
For you, who will fall in love one day
