かさなる影飾らない気持ちで
強さを求めてく
つまずいても迷っても構わない
1人じゃないから
沈んでく夕日が
明日を照らし出す
手と手をつなぐ
真っ直ぐ伸びた影

下を向いて
また泣いてるんだろう?
隠した涙
あたししか知らない
何も無かったように
笑顔見せても
張りつめた心抱え込む君は
壊れそうだよ

踏み出そう荷物は降ろして
新しい自分を見つけ出そうよ
大丈夫さらけだせばいい
あたしがいるよ
その手は一つじゃない

かさなる影飾らない気持ちで
強さを求めてく
つまずいても迷っても構わない
1人じゃないから
沈んでく夕日が
明日を照らし出す
手と手をつなぐ
真っ直ぐ伸びた影

目の前だけただひたすら見つめて
駆け出しても
大切な人の声
聞き逃してゆく
探し物探しても
見つけきれないのなら
自分じゃない誰かが
その答えを握ってることもあるから

今はまだ気付いてないけれど
君の手も誰かを支えてるんだ
辛く挫けそうな時
あたしはいつも 君を思い出す

繋がる影
目に見えない絆で支えあい生きていく
振り向く事忘れたら呼んでくれる
確かな声がいる
守りたい思いで
生まれゆく強さ
儚く強く
真っ直ぐ伸びた影

誰もが自分自身の孤独を破る勇気
持ってるわけじゃない
温かな場所に行けずに泣く声が
遠くから聞こえたら
差し出す勇気
この手は一つじゃない

どんな時も一人の寂しさを
感じたくなんかない
世界でひとりきりじゃ
嬉しくても笑い合えないよ
傷ついてもいい
あたしは求めるよ
素直に気持ちを伝えたい

かさなる影飾らない気持ちで
強さを求めてく
つまずいても迷っても構わない
1人じゃないから
沈んでく夕日が
明日を照らし出す
手と手をつなぐ
真っ直ぐ伸びた影

Those overlapping shadows seeks strength with their unpretentious feelings
Even if I trip and I'm lost, I don't care because I'm not alone
The setting sun will once again shine brightly tomorrow
Connecting hand to hand, the shadow that stretches out straight ahead.

As you look down, are you crying once again?
Those tears you've hidden, that's all I know.
Even if you smile as if nothing happened
Your heart is strained as you take everything upon yourself, it seems to be broken already

As you seem to take the first step while you put down your burden
It's just like you've found your new self
Its okay, even if you're completely exposed
I am here
This hand isn't alone

The overlapping shadows seeks strength with their unpretentious feelings
Even if it trips and is lost, it doesn't care because its not alone
The setting sun will once again shine brightly tomorrow
Connecting hand to hand, the shadows that stretches out straight ahead.

Even if you're intent on focusing only at what's in front of you and run away
You're just blocking out the voice of the people that is important to you
If you give up searching for what you were searching for
You will not be yourself
Since there's always somebody who have found their own answer

Although you haven't realised it yet, your hand is also somebody's support
When the going seems to get tougher and tougher, I always think of you

Those connected shadows that cannot be seen by the eyes, lives by the bonds that supports them.
If I forget to turn around, please call out for me.
The voice that I can trust is here
A memory about a desire to protect, it is as strong as the drive to live on
The shadow that stretches out straight ahead with transient strength

There is no way people would have the courage to destroy one's loneliness.
If you hear a crying sound as it heads towards a place filled with warmth from faraway
Have the courage to extend a hand out
For it is not alone

No matter when, I wouldn't want to feel the loneliness of one people
If I cut yourself away from the world, I can't feel any happiness or laughter
Even if I get hurt, its okay for this is what I seek
For I want to be able to express my feelings honestly

Those overlapping shadows seeks strength with their unpretentious feelings
Even if I trip and I'm lost, I don't care because I'm not alone
The setting sun will once again shine brightly tomorrow
Connecting hand to hand, the shadow that stretches out straight ahead.
