Lyrics (kanji) are taken from the booklet

人生の素晴らしさとかそんなのどうでもよかった
ただただなあなたに生きていてほしかっただけそれだけで
世界は美しいとか そんなの当たり前のこと
生きてるあたしたちにしか見えないんだから

見る夢はいつも同じあの日の夕焼け空見て
あなたも夕日に染まって
この世で一番悲しい言葉をそっと呟く
起きたら泣いてる夢

誰か冗談だって笑って言ってくれ
でないと生きていける気がしない

『下を向いてるから涙落ちるんだぞ』
懐かしい声が聞こえた気がした

そっか真上を向いて歩き続けたら
どれだけ溜まっても零れず済む

泣くのはもうやめにする
明日からは誰かのため生きようと思う
あなたが残してくれた道だから
自分の欲望は捨てて
それが希望になるならば
あたし一人でもいい 未来を目指して歩く

いつかはそっちへ行くからその日は
思い切り泣かせてくれ
死ぬまで泣かないと誓うから

Romaji lyrics:
jinsei no subarashisa to ka sonna no doudemo yokatta
tadatada na anata ni ikiteite hoshikatta dake sore dake de
sekai wa utsukushii to ka sonna no atarimae no koto
ikiteru atashitachi ni shika mienaindakara

miru yume wa itsumo onaji ano hi no yuuyake sora mite
anata mo yuuhi ni somatte
kono yo de ichiban kanashii kotoba wo sotto tsubuyaku
okitara naiteru yume

dareka joudan datte waratte itte kure
denai to ikiteikeru ki ga shinai

[shita wo muiteru kara namida ochirunda zo]
natsukashii koe ga kikoeta ki ga shita

sokka ue wo muite arukitsuzuketara
dore dake tamatte mo koborezu sumu

naku no wa mou yame ni suru
ashita kara wa dareka no tame ikiyou to omou
anata ga nokoshite kureta michi dakara
jibun no yokubou wa sutete
sore ga kibou ni naru naraba
atashi hitori demo ii mirai wo mezashite aruku

itsuka wa socchi e iku kara sono hi wa
omoikiri nakasete kure
shinu made nakanai to chikau kara


English translation:
The splendor of life and whatnot, I couldn't care less about that
All I wanted was for you to live, that was all I wished for
The world is beautiful and whatnot, that is just obvious
After all, it can only be seen by us, the ones who are living

I always see the same dream, that we were watching the sunset on that day
You were dyed by the twilight
Then you murmured the saddest words in this world
And I wake up in tears

Someone, laugh and tell me that this is just a joke
Otherwise, I don't think I can go on living anymore

"Your tears are falling down because you keep looking down."
It felt like I could hear such nostalgic dear voice

So, if I continue to look up when I walk
No matter how many tears well up, they won't spill at all

I decided to stop crying at all
I think I will live for others from tomorrow on
After all, this is the path that you had left for me
I will abandon my own desire
If that will become a hope
I'll be fine even if I'm all alone... I will walk towards the future

Someday, I'll go over where you are, and when the time comes
Please let me cry my heart out
Because I vow never to cry anymore until my death
