Lyrics & Music: MAMI
Arrangement: Keita Kawaguchi

On the other side of the city that's about to burst in tears
Everyone's celebrating and laughing
Over the birth of new life on the TV news
I believe that even I
Can be reborn like this

Starting over
Doing it over again
Aren't easy, so
I'm a little worried
But, somewhere in my heart
I think I can do it well tomorrow

I can't stop, so I'll carefully
Imagine, and wait for the morning

When I open my eyes, a new me is here
I can draw anything from now on
When I step forward more lightly than usual
With my comfortable shoes, I can jump over anything
The ideals I imagined are more difficult than reality
But I can always make a new start

Since I was small, I've had a bad habit
Of my worries not disappearing for many years
I don't have any memories of taking a hit, but
Before I know it, I've been living with the bruises

Even it was a day
When I couldn't say, "Today was wonderful"

I'll set my alarm for a still unseen tomorrow
Hold my tears back, and dream
Even if the moon and stars are covered by clouds
They're illuminating this city as always
Even if the future I aimed for is different than the present
It'll be okay. I can still go anywhere freely

I'll believe in all of myself up to this point
And wait for the morning I imagined

When I open my eyes, a new me is here
I can draw anything from now on
When I step forward more lightly than usual
With my comfortable shoes, I can jump over anything
The ideals I imagined are repainting reality
I can always make a new start

泣き出しそうな街を背に
TVのニュースでは新しい生命の誕生を
みんなが祝い笑ってる
こんな風に僕だって
生まれ変われたらと思ってる

やり直すことも
繰り返すことも
簡単じゃないから
少し悩んでいるけれど
明日はうまくやれるって
心のどこかで思ってる

ストップできないから慎重に
イメージして朝を待つ

目を開ければ新しい僕がいる
今からなんだって描いていける
履き慣れた靴でいつもより軽快に
踏み出せばなんでも飛び越えられる
イメージした理想は現実より難しいが
いつだって新しいスタートは切れる

長年消えない悩み事
小さい頃 身についたクセ
ぶつけた記憶もないのに出来たアザも
気づけば一緒に生きてきたんだ

今日が素晴らしいと言えなかった
一日だったとしても

まだ見ぬ明日にアラームをセットして
涙をぐっと堪えて夢を見よう
月や星は雲に覆われていても
変わらずにこの街を照らしてるから
目指していた理想(みらい)が現実(いま)と違っていても
大丈夫 どんな場所へも まだ自由に行ける

今までの自分もすべて信じて
イメージした朝を待つ

目を開ければ新しい僕がいる
今からなんだって描いていける
履き慣れた靴でいつもより軽快に
踏み出せばなんでも飛び越えられる
イメージした理想が現実を塗り替えていく
いつだって新しいスタートは切れる
