Lyrics (kanji) taken from the booklet. Translation are NOT from the official translation booklet.

空は青く大地は緑だったんだよ
海にはいろんな魚が泳いでいたんだ
夜には星が瞬いてた

大きなお腹をさすってきみは
我が子にそんな話を聞かせた

夏には花火と言うええとなんていうか…
蚊に刺されるのは今も同じだけれど
秋の紅葉は忘れられない

冬に降る雪はなにもかも染めて
別世界のよう 歩きにくいけど

「本当にこんな世界で生むのか」
何遍も僕はきみを諭した

ひとりじゃ生きれないけど
家族だったら大丈夫

だからあなたも想像してみて

夜明けを この星の
生まれるその時は痛みが伴うもの

だからあたしも生む
すべてに祝福が

信じる
信じてる

Romaji lyrics:
sora wa aoku daichi wa midori dattanda yo
umi ni wa ironna sakana ga oyoideitanda
yoru ni wa hoshi ga matataiteta

ooki na onaka wo sasutte kimi wa
waga ko ni sonna hanashi wo kikaseta

natsu ni wa hanabi to iu ee to nante iu ka...
ka ni sasareru no wa ima mo onaji dakeredo
aki no kouyou wa wasurerarenai

fuyu ni furu yuki wa nanimokamo somete
betsu sekai no you arukinikui kedo

[hontou ni konna sekai de umu no ka]
nanben mo boku wa kimi wo satoshita


hitori ja ikirenai kedo
kazoku dattara daijoubu

dakara anata mo souzou shite mite

yoake wo kono hoshi no
umareru sono toki wa itami ga tomonau mono

dakara atashi mo umu
subete ni shukufuku ga

English translation:
The sky was blue, and the land used to be green
There were all sorts of fish swimming in the ocean
And the night was full of twinkling stars

As you stroke your big belly gently,
You told such stories to our child


In the summer, there were things called fireworks, and then... What else...
Oh, and getting bitten by mosquito... Though that's still the same even now
The red tint of the autumn leaves, that I will never forget

The snow falling during winter would cover everything in white
It was like another world, although it was hard to walk in

"Should we really bring our child into a world like this?"
I tried to convince you over and over again


It wouldn't be possible for them to live alone
But as long as we're family, we'll be fine

So, dear, you should try imagining it

The pain when this planet was born
brought the first light of dawn along with it

So I will give birth as well
And there will be blessing for everything

I believe
I believe in it
