English

The area by the classroom window
Is warm and sunny
Not much time left on the spring calendar

When I look around in class
All my friends
Wearing the same uniform
Look grown-up

We’re all going to set out
To our respective futures
We have
The wings of dreams
On our backs

When the cherry blossom petals bloom
I can hear the bells of hope ringing somewhere
Giving us the freedom and courage
Of tomorrow
When the cherry blossom petals bloom
Someone is surely praying somewhere
To open the door to a new world with their own hands

There were times when we fought
And cried on the phone
For some reason I’m nostalgic
For the stressful days

When I look back, both my joy and sadness
Have left a road
I was never
Alone

I smile
In our graduation photo
I want to watch
The seasons go by
Goodbye

Petals of tears fall
Down my cheeks as I walk away
As I look up at the blue sky
And take a big, deep breath
Petals of tears fall
As beautiful as my memories
Let’s wave as we walk up the stairway to adulthood together

When the cherry blossom petals bloom
I can hear the bells of hope ringing somewhere
Giving us the freedom and courage
Of tomorrow
When the cherry blossom petals bloom
Someone is surely praying somewhere
To open the door to a new world with their own hands

Petals of tears fall
Down my cheeks as I walk away
As I look up at the blue sky
And take a big, deep breath
Petals of tears fall
As beautiful as my memories
Let’s wave as we walk up the stairway to adulthood together
