君と歩いた 通学路
開いた景色 見つめて
春の校庭 河川敷
夏祭りみんなで笑って
肩寄せ 過ごしてた日々

この何気ない日常眺めて
過去から今まで過ごしてきたよ
今日から明日明日から未来へ
みんなと築いた絆 秘めて歩き出す

Kimi to aruita tsuugakuro
Hiraita keshiki mitsumete
Haru no koutei kasenjiki
Natsumatsuri minna de warratte
Katayose sugoshiteta hibi

Kono nanigenai nichijou o nagamete
Kako kara ima made sugoshite kita yo
Kyou kara asu ashita kara mirai e
Minna to kizuita kizuna himete arukidasu

Kimi to aruita tsuugakuro
Hinabita keshiki mitsumete
Haru no koutei kasenjiki natsumatsuri
Minna de waratte katayose sugoshiteta hibi

Kono nanigenai nichijou o nagamete
Kako kara ima made sugoshite kita yo
Kyou kara asu ashita kara mirai e
Minna to kizuita kizuna himete arukidasu

Kimi to sugoshita kyoushitsu ya
Okujou kawaranu kioku
Aki no ryokou ya bunkasai KURISUMASU
Subete ga tomodachi no shirushi taisetsu na toki

Ano atatakai kurashi ga owatte
Mirai e tooku e to susumu to shitta
Tabidachi wa sukoshi sabishii keredo
Bokura tagai no kizuna ima mo shinjiteru

Sotto ugoita kuchibiru
“Hanarete ite mo tomodachi da yo!”
Sou kikoeta boku mo unazuki tsubuyaku
“Bokura ga aete yokatta…” to

Saa atarashi ashita e susumou
Kono machi ni koreta kouun mune ni
Sanbyaku-rokujuu-go-nichi sugoshita
Kono tokubetsu na jikan minna arigatou

I walked on the road to school with you
Looking at the scenery spread out before us
At the campus in spring, at the floodplain
At the summer festival, I spent my days
laughing and bumping shoulders with everyone

I spent my time gazing at these casual, ordinary days
from the past to the present
From today to tomorrow, from tomorrow to the future

Keeping the bonds I built with everyone hidden in me, I’ll start walking
