Official lyrics (kanji) taken from the booklet. (special thanks to Jelle Vlaeminck).

二階建てのバスがすぐそばを通り過ぎてく
そろそろ新しい暮らしにも慣れてきた頃
この町で知った全部好きになる
まだ寂しいけど 朝も早いけど 雪も好きじゃないけど
降り積もる 覆い隠してく 窓に映る泣き顔も

冬の日差しを受け光ってる路面で滑る
出会いはお年寄りがほとんどでそれだけ不満
きみにメールを書いてそれからは消してを繰り返した
いつになっても
このメールは届かない
降り積もる 覆い隠してく
痛いほど募る思いも

話し相手なら少しはできた
冗談も言うただ 上手く笑えてるだろうか

この町の冬はまだ終わりそうにない
永遠でいい 町を閉ざして
もうどこにも向かわないで
降り積もれ 覆い隠して
きみがいた風景も
見たことのない銀色の世界
真新しい一歩踏み出す
全部好きになる きみを忘れてこの町で生きていける

Romaji lyrics:
nikaidate no basu ga sugu soba wo toorisugiteku
sorosoro atarashii kurashi ni mo naretekita koro
kono machi de shitta zenbu suki ni naru
mada samishii kedo asa mo hayai kedo yuki mo suki janai kedo
furitsumoru ooikakushiteku mado ni utsuru nakigao mo

fuyu no hizashi wo uke hikatteru romen de suberu
deai wa o-toshiyori ga hotondo de sore dake fuman
kimi ni meeru wo kaite sorekara wa keshite wo kurikaeshita
itsu ni natte mo
kono meeru wa todokanai
furitsumoru ooikakushiteku
itai hodo tsunoru omoi mo

hanashi aite nara sukoshi wa dekita
joudan mo iu tada umaku waraeteru darou ka

kono machi no fuyu wa mada owarisou ni nai
eien de ii machi wo tozashite
mou doko ni mo mukawanaide
furitsumore ooikakushite
kimi ga ita fuukei mo
mita koto no nai gin'iro no sekai
maatarashii ippo fumidasu
zenbu suki ni naru kimi wo wasurete kono machi de ikiteikeru


English translation:
The double-decker bus passes through so close by my side
I should be getting used to this new life any time now
I come to like everything I knew in this town
Though I still feel lonely, the morning comes early, and I don't even like snow
It just piles up and covers everything,
even the tear-stained face reflected in the window

Feeling the winter sunlight, I slide through the sparkling road surface
I don't feel so content that the ones I pass by are mostly the elderly
Typing a mail to you, and then deleting it, and so I repeated it
Over and over again
Though I know this mail will never ever reach you
It just piles up and covers everything
Even this feeling which has grown stronger, so much it's painful

I have at least made some conversation partners
Even I can crack a joke, but... I wonder if I can smile just right

The winter in this town doesn't show any sign of ending
But it's okay even if it's forever... Lock off this town
And don't go anywhere anymore
Just pile up and cover everything
Even the scenery where you used to be
Make a silver world like none has ever seen before
And so I will take a brand new step
So I can live in this town where I come to love everything,
where I will forget about you
