閉じられてた本に挟んだしおり
紐解く記憶たち 逆引くように
物語は綴られる

今はもう遠くなった日の言葉
真実だと疑わなかった
真っ白なノートに走らせていく指
見つめる笑顔うれしくて

去り際、伸びる影に
再会を約束して
飲み込んでしまった 君への偽りを

書き連ねて残す 大切なモノ
まだ形にならないけれど すぐに
僕たちのあしたの 道になる
下書きのページに 挟んだしおり
ためらう記憶たち 逆巻くように
物語は動き出す

いくつもの可能性があるんだと
信じているこの世界だから
タイトルの無い表紙を見て、ペンを取る
未来に名前をつけよう

面影さえ忘れた
二人で見ていた景色
戸惑いと不安を隠せず駆けだした

黄昏に消えてく 金色の瞳
導かれるようおいかけた それは
僕たちがあるいた 道だった
未完成の本に 挟んだしおり
重ねた記憶たち 逆らうように
物語は作られる

小さな声で
呟いた悔いの言葉
感情の翼を
つかさどるように

書き連ねておいた 大切なモノ
まだ形にならないけれど それは
僕たちが「明日」と呼ぶ自由

閉じられてた本に挟んだしおり
紐解く記憶たち 逆引くように
物語は綴られる

English:
The bookmark slipped into the closed book
So that the perused memories would be reversed
The story will be written

Now, it's just words from a distant past
I didn't doubt it at all for I believed that it's the truth
My fingers run through the blank white notebook
As I gaze on it, I smile for joy

When you leave, when the shadow stretches
We made a promise of reunion
I swallowed the lie I told you

The important things I listed and left behind
Even though it still has no form, soon
It will become the way of our future
The bookmark slipped into the draft
So that the wavering memories would surge to each other
The story will begin to move

It is said that there are numerous possibilities exist
I believe it because it's this world we're talking about
I look at the cover without any title, and take the pen
Let's decide a name for the future

I even forgot about the image
of the scenery we both saw
Unable to hide my anxiety and confusion, I started to run away

Disappearing into the twilight, the golden eyes
As if I was guided by them, I ran toward it
That was the path we walked
The bookmark slipped into the incomplete book
So that the overlapping memories would defy each other
The story will be made

With a small voice
I murmured the words of regret
As if I'm trying to control
the wings of emotions

All the important things I listed
Even though it still has no form
It's the freedom we call "future"

The bookmark slipped into the closed book
So that the perused memories would be reversed
The story will be written
