Koizora Ending Theme – Tabidachi no Uta

Song of Departure
Vocals: Mr.Children
Lyrics: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Composition: Sakurai Kazutoshi

Don’t be afraid.
Light up the lamp with anything you can get your hands on
A night of loneliness will someday break into dawn
On days when you fall down, I will be able to sense it in the faraway distance
And when you try again after getting up, you will somehow manage to make it, won’t you?

The song you have once loved is now being played across town
That is an unexpected gift given to me in such a casual manner

Ah, a Song of Departure
Where are we going? Ah, perhaps we will meet each other somewhere
But it will be “farewell” for now
When a time which someone starts forgetting me comes, I will be calling you
However, even if you can hear me, I don’t need an answer

When something dear that you have once lost comes back to you again
Start all over again, just like a cycle it is
Until now, I was not able to cry or smile is something I’m wishing hard for you to say
As I thought, you are longing for someone

Even though you like to say that you are unable to do it due to hesitation
In that manner of yours, you continue to leave your mark on everyday
No matter what place you are at

Ah, the last song we sung in celebration in the beginning
I’m still waving my hands to it even now, Ah
Saying farewell to the grief and sorrow
When your legs stop due to exhaustion, do look back for a little while
I will be pushing you forward from a place you cannot reach

Ah, a Song of Departure
Where are we going? Ah, perhaps we will meet each other somewhere
But it will be “farewell” for now
When I start to forget somebody
I will try to vaguely remember him
Look, a smile exists in me because of you

I will be pushing you forward from behind
However, I don’t need an answer

 

Tabidachi no Uta
Vocals: Mr.Children

Kowagaranai de.
Te atarishitai ni akari tsukenakutemo
Itsuka hitori-bochi no yoru wa akete yuku yo
Koronda hi wa haruka tooku kanjite ita keshiki mo
Oki agatte yoku miru to nanka tadoritsuke sou jan

Kimi no daisuki da tta uta machi ni nagareru
Sore wa guuzen ga boku ni kureta sarigenai okuri mono

Ah Tabidachi no uta
Saa doko e ikou? Mata doko ka de deaeru ne Ah
Toriaesu “sayounara”
Jibun ga dare ka wakaranaku narutoki kimi ni katari kakeru yo
Demo moshi kikoete itatte henji wa iranai kara

Taisetsu na mono o nakushite matate ni irete
Sonna kurikaeshi no you de sono tabi atarashikute
“Mou kore iju namida nakashitari warai attari dekinai” to ittetatte
Yappari hito koishikute

Ima ga daisuki da tte chucho na doshinai de ieru
Sonna fuu ni hibi o kizande ikou
Donna basho ni itemo

Ah Hajimari no iwai utau saigo no uta
Boku wa ima te o furu yo Ah
Kanashimi ni sayonara
Tsukarehatete ashi ga tomaru toki sukoshi dake burigatte yo
Te no todokanai basho de senaka o oshiteru kara…

Ah Tabidachi no uta 
Saa doko e ikou? Mata doko ka de deaeru ne Ah
Toriaesu “sayounara”
Jibun ga dare ka wasure sona toki bonyari omoi dashite yo
Hora boku no karadaju egao no kimi ga iru kara
Senaka o oshiteru kara
Demo henji wa iranai kara
