名前を呼んで振り向いてくれた君に
伝えたくて届かない想い今でも
抱えて気付かないふりしていたよ
だけど約束の場所へと

にじんで見えなくなってるけど
消えずに残ってるもの
いつまでもこの胸に刻まれていて
素直になれなかったよ
ほんとは泣きたかったよ
変わらない想いにそう気付いたんだ

ずっとずっと眠れない夜もあったね
いくつもの言葉を探してみても
一番伝えたい気持ちだけは
どうして言葉にできない?

にじんで見えなくなってるけど
消えずに残ってるもの
いつまでもこの胸に刻まれていて
素直になれなかったよ
ほんとは泣きたかったよ
変わらない想いに気付いて

次会えたらひょっとして私変われるかな
にじむ想いほら胸に眠ろうか

にじんで見えなくなってるけど
消えずに残ってるもの
いつまでもこの胸に刻まれていて
素直になれなかったよ
ほんとは泣きたかったよ
変わらない想いにそう気付いたんだ

変わらない想いを今伝えたいよ

English translation:
I have an unreachable feeling I've yet to tell you,
Even up until now, to you who always turn to me everytime I call your name
I've been holding it as I pretend not to know it
But, to our promised place...

Even when it's blurred so much I can't see it anymore,
It's still left behind, never gonna disappear
As it is already engraved deep in my heart, forever and ever
I couldn't be honest, really
The truth is, I wanted to cry
I noticed so, inside my unchanging feeling

Even there were times when I couldn't get to sleep at all
No matter how many words I have looked for
Why, I can't find the words
to tell you my utmost feeling?

Even when it's blurred so much I can't see it anymore,
It's still left behind, never gonna disappear
As it's already engraved deep in my heart, forever and ever
I couldn't be honest, really
The truth is, I wanted to cry
I notice in my unchanging feeling

I wonder, when we meet again someday, will I already become someone different?
Oh, my blurred feeling... Let's put you rest in my heart.

Even when it's blurred so much I can't see it anymore,
It's still left behind, never gonna disappear
As it's already engraved deep in my heart, forever and ever
I couldn't be honest, really
The truth is, I wanted to cry.
I noticed so, inside my unchanging feeling

Now, I'll tell you... My unchanging feeling
