Lyrics[]

TV Size (Makoto Fujiwara and Duet)[]

Boku wa mou oikake wa shinai
Kimi no hashiru kage no ato
Hito wa dare mo hashiritsuzukeru
Goal wa mada mienai
Kyou no tsugi ni nani ga aru
Asu no saki ni nani ga aru
Haruka kanata no hikari ni mukete
Boku wa ima mo hashiritsuzukeru

僕はもう追いかけはしない
君の走る影のあと
人は誰も走いつづける
ゴールはまだ見えない
今日の次に何がある
明日の先に何がある
遥か彼方の光にむけて
僕は今も走りつづける

I will no longer chase after
Your running shadow
People continue to run
Even though their goal cannot yet be seen
What lies beyond today?
What lies beyond tomorrow?
Facing the light in the distance
Even now, I continue to run

TV Size (Virgin Road rendition)[]

Kimi wa kyou tabidatsu tame ni
Hitori sotto beni o hiku
Shiroi bēru nitsutsumarete
Kirameku toki o matte iru
Koisuru kimochi ga ai ni nari
Aisuru kimochi ga yasashi-sa ni
Itoshii hito o kokoro ni kizami
Futari wa eien ni ayumi tsuzukeru

君は今日 旅立つために
一人そっと(べに)を引く
白いベールに包まれて
きらめく時を待っている
恋する気持ちが愛になり
愛する気持ちが優しさに
愛しい人を心に刻み
二人は永遠に 歩み続ける

TV Size (Mari Iijima)[]

Boku wa mou mayoi wa shinai
Jibun no michi o ayumu dake
Hito wa dare mo hashiritsuzukeru
Goal wa tooi keredo
Kyou o sugisaru hibi no naka
Asu to iu hi ga kureba ii
Haruka kanata no hikari ni mukete
Boku wa ima mo hashiritsuzukeru

僕はもう迷いはしない
自分の道を歩むだけ
人は誰も走いつづける
ゴールは遠いけれど
今日を過ぎ去る日々の中
明日という日がくればいい
遥か彼方の光にむけて
僕は今も走りつづける

I will no longer be lost
I will only walk my own path
People continue to run
Even if their goal is distant
Amidst the days that pass through today
It would be good if the day called "tomorrow" came
Facing the light in the distance
Even now, I continue to run

Boku wa mou tomari wa shinai

今日の次に何がある
明日の先に何がある
遥か彼方の光にむけて
僕は今も走りつづける

僕はもう迷いはしない

人は誰も走いつづける
ゴールは遠いけれど
今日を過ぎ去る日々の中
明日という日がくればいい
遥か彼方の光にむけて
僕は今も走りつづける

僕はもう止まりはしない
いつか出会う時もある
人は誰も走りつづける
ゴールは見えないけど
明日という名の希望の日
未来という名の輝きが
遥か彼方の光にむけて
僕は今も走りつづける

I will no longer chase after
Your running shadow
People continue to run
Even though their goal cannot yet be seen
What lies beyond today?
What lies beyond tomorrow?
Facing the light in the distance
Even now, I continue to run

I will no longer be lost
I will only walk my own path
People continue to run
Even if their goal is distant
Amidst the days that pass through today
It would be good if the day called "tomorrow" came
Facing the light in the distance
Even now, I continue to run

I will no longer stop
Someday, there will also be a time when we meet
People continue to run
Even if they cannot see their goal
"Tomorrow" is said to be a day of hope
And the future is said to be bright
Facing the light in the distance
Even now, I continue to run
