Lyrics & Composition: Chihiro Yonekura
Arrangement: aqua.t

Forgive me for being brief,

How are you? No changes?
I'm afraid to say, I won't be able to attend our class reunion.

Come to think of it, three years have passed since we graduated, right?
I really miss the snow falling on our school building.
I'm doing my best. But it still feels far until my dream.
The cherry blossoms I see from my window seem like the snow we saw on that day
and it makes Tokyo after daybreak so painful.

"Let's make our dreams come true and absolutely meet in ten years!!"

Whenever I look up at the paper I've thumb-tacked to the wall
I've gotten through even the painful days somehow or another.
I'm doing my best. I'm running through the alleyways today and tomorrow too.
Even if you're far, I'll do the best I can in this city now
until the day I can someday shine enough that you notice me.

I'm moving fast, sweating, but, honestly, I'm lonely
but I stand on tiptoe and bow my head, while overdoing it at times...
I'm doing my best.
Please convey my regards to everyone.
The cherry blossoms I see from my window seem like the snow we saw on that day
and make the graying Tokyo sky so beautiful.

Sincerely yours
"Tegami"

前略

お元気ですか?変わりないですか?
同窓会、残念ですが参加できません。

思えば卒業してから、三年も経ったんですね。
校舎に降る雪がとても懐かしいです。
頑張ってます。それでもまだ、夢までは遠そうです。
窓辺から見える桜、あの日見た雪みたいで
夜明け前の東京は切ないです。

「十年後 夢叶えて、絶対会おうね!!」

画びょうで壁に貼った紙を見上げるたびに、
つらい日もなんとか乗り越えてきました。
頑張ってます。ビルの谷間、今日も明日も走ってます。
遠くてもわかるくらい、いつか輝ける日まで
今はこの街で精一杯やっています。

風をきって汗をかいて でも正直、寂しいけど
背伸びして頭下げて 時には無理もしながら...
頑張ってます。
どうぞよろしく、みんなに伝えてください。
窓辺から見える桜、あの日見た雪みたいで
白みはじめた東京の空はキレイです。

草々
