Romaji by SnakeRoot

Romaji

Haru no soyokaze ga
Doko kara ka fuki
Kayoi nareta michi
Irodori wo kigaeru

Yorokobi mo kanashimi mo
Sugisatta kisetsu
Atarashii michi
Aruki hajimeru

Sakura no hana wa wakare no shiori
Hirahira to te wo futta
Tomo no kao ga ukabu
Sakura no hana wa namida no shiori
Taisetsu na kono toki wo
Itsumademo wasurenu you ni...

Sora wo miagereba
Sono ooki sa ni
Hateshinaku tsudzuku
Michi no nagasa wo shitta

Hare no hi mo ame no hi mo
Ashita wa kuru kara
Hohoemi nagara
Ippo fumidasu

Sakura no hana wa mirai no shiori
Itsuka mita sono yume wo
Omoidaseru you ni...
Sakura no hana wa kibou no shiori
Akiramete shimau yori
Kono peeji
Hiraite miyou

Sakura no hana wa kokoro no shiori
Kagayaita seishun no
Komorebi ga mabushii
Sakura no hana wa ano hi no shiori
Hito wa mina mankai ni
Saita yume wasure wa shinai

English

A spring breeze
Comes from somewhere
Changing the colours
Of this familiar road

This season
Puts the happiness and sadness in the past
And we start walking
A new road

The cherry blossoms are a goodbye bookmark
I see my friends’ faces
As they waved lightly
The cherry blossoms are a bookmark of tears
I pray that I’ll never forget
This precious time...

When I look up at the sky
Its vastness
Showed me how endlessly long
This road is

Whether it’s a sunny day or a rainy one
Tomorrow will come
So I’ll smile
As I take a step

The cherry blossoms are a future bookmark
I pray that I’ll remember
The dreams I had one day...
The cherry blossoms are a bookmark of hope
Instead of giving up
I’ll open to this page

The cherry blossoms
Are a bookmark in my heart
My youth was a dazzling sun
That shone so bright through the trees
The cherry blossoms are a bookmark of that day
Nobody will forget
The dreams that were in full bloom
