Please note, the translation that follows is the correct one. The other “translation” that is floating around is actually the English version’s lyrics and is a less accurate transcript, even if slightly more elegant.

Fukai fukai mori no oku ni ima mo kitto
Okizari ni shita kokoro kakushiteru yo
Sagasu hodo no chikara mo naku tsukarehateta
Hitobito wa eien no yami ni kieru

Chisai mama nara kitto
ima demo mieta ka na

Bokutachi wa ikiru hodo ni
Nakushiteku sukoshi zutsu
Itsuwari ya uso o matoni
Tachisukumu koe mo naku

Aoi aoi sora no iro mo kizukanai mama
Sugiteyuku mainichi ga kawatteyuku
Tsukurareta wakugumi o koe ima o ikite
Sabitsuita kokoro mata ugokidasu yo

Toki no rizumu o shireba
Mo ichido toberu darou

Bokutachi wa samayoi nagara
Ikite yuku doko made mo
Shinjiteru hikari motome
Arukidasu kimi to ima

Bokutachi wa ikiru hodo ni
Nakushiteku sukoshi zutsu
Itsuwari ya uso o matoni
Tachisukumu koe mo naku

Bokutachi wa samayoi nagara
Ikite yuku doko made mo
Furikaeru michi wo tozashi
Aruiteku eien ni
Tachisukumu koe mo naku
Ikite yuku eien ni

I’m sure that the heart I left behind
still lies hidden in the heart of the deep, deep forest.
Exhausted, without the strength to search,
people vanish into the infinite darkness.
If it’s so small,
I wonder if I can see it even now?

As we live on,
we lose a little bit more.
Shrouded in falsehoods and lies,
we stand frozen to the spot, unable to cry out.

The days pass by and change
without us even realizing how blue the sky really is.

Overcoming that made-up scheme, we live the present,
and our rusted hearts begin to beat again!

If we can find the rhythm of time,
we can fly once again

We live our lives
wandering to the ends of the earth.
Believing in you, now I begin my journey with you,
in search of the light.

As we live on,
we lose a little bit more.
Shrouded in falsehoods and lies,
we stand frozen to the spot, unable to cry out

We live our lives
wandering to the ends of the earth.
Closing off the way back,
we walk on for eternity.

We live our lives standing frozen to the spot,
unable to cry out, for eternity.
