降り積もる粉雪が舞う
諦めかけた夢がまた 波打つ
あの日のままで
変わらない笑顔見つめた
染まる頬に触れた風が 空高く抜けた

---いつも見ていた。近いようで遠くて。いつだって、届かない...

どうして?と
問いかけた声も揺れる
ゆらゆら水面に浮かんだ月は何も
語らないただの傍観者
「同じね」
握る手が痛い

いたずらに風が吹く朝
樹々の葉がじゃれあう声に合わせて
駆け出す君を
ただ夢中で追いかけてた
その横顔が見てるのは遥か遠く ここじゃなくて

海が満ち、また引いていく夕凪
心の岸に打ち寄せられた決意は明日の光
信じて

ねぇ
問いかけた声が響く
はらはらと一緒に夜空駆けていけば
あの丘に日差しさす頃に
「見つけた」
願いは宝石 輝き出す ah

the ebb and flow of my mind...
Romaji:
furitsumoru konayuki ga mau
akiramekaketa yume ga mata namiutsu
ano hi no mama de
kawaranai egao mitsumeta
somaru hoho ni fureta kaze ga sora takaku nuketa

--- itsumo miteita. chikai you de tookute. itsu datte, todokanai...

doushite? to
toikaketa koe mo yureru
yurayura minamo ni ukanda tsuki wa nani mo
kataranai tada no boukansha
[onaji ne]
nigiru te ga itai

itazura ni kaze ga fuku asa
kigi no ha ga jareau koe ni awasete
kakedasu kimi wo
tada muchuu de oikaketeta
sono yokogao ga miteru no wa haruka tooku koko janakute

umi ga michi, mata hiiteyuku yuunagi
kokoro no kishi ni uchiyoserareta ketsui wa asu no hikari
shinjite

nee
toikaketa koe ga hibiku
harahara to issho ni yozora kaketeyukeba
ano oka ni hizashi sasu koro ni
[mitsuketa]
negai wa houseki kagayakidasu ah

the ebb and flow of my mind...

English:
The falling and piling up snowflakes dance around.
The dream I almost give up is surging back,
just like the way it was back then.
I watched the unchanging smile.
The wind touching my flushed cheek slipped high into the sky.

---I've been watching all the time. Seems near, yet so far. Always... unreachable...

Why? I asked,
with my shaking voice.
The swaying moon on the water says nothing,
as it's just an onlooker.
"We're the same, huh?"
My hand grasps it hurts.

In the morning with playful wind,
together with the sound of rustling leaves,
you broke into a run.
All I could do was to run after you frantically.
That face I saw from your side is looking far, far away, somewhere that isn't here.

The evening calm returns back and fills the sea.
The determination washed away to the shore of my heart is the light of tomorrow.
I believe.

Say...
My voice resounds, full with anxiety.
If only I could go through the night sky together with you.
By the time the sun lit upon that hill,
"Found it".
My prayer starts to shine like a jewel, ah...

the ebb and flow of my mind...
