english lyrics by: Theresa Martin

Tenohira no soyokaze ga
Hikari no naka ki-ra-ki-ra odori-dasu
Oroshitate no egao de
Shiranai hito ni mo "ohayou"-tte ieta no

Anata ni aenaku natte
Sabita tokei to naita kedo

Heiki namida ga kawaita ato ni wa
Yume e no tobira ga aru no
Nayandecha yukenai
Kondo kanashimi ga kite mo tomodachi
Mukaeru you ni warau [kanji: hohoemi] wa
...kitto yakusoku yo

Furi-sosogu hanabira ga
Kami ni kata ni hi-ra-hi-ra sasayaku no
Deai to onaji kazu no
Wakare ga aru no ne anata no sei ja nai

Omoide afure-dashite mo
Watashi no genki makenaide

Heiki hibi wareta mune no sukima ni
Shiawase shinobi-komu kara
Tameiki wa tsukanai
Fui ni kanashimi wa yatte kuru kedo
Nakayoku natte miseru wa
...datte yakusoku yo

Heiki namida ga kawaita ato ni wa
Yume e no tobira ga aru no
Nayandecha yukenai
Sou yo yasashiku tomodachi
Mukaeru you ni warau wa
...kitto yakusoku yo

Fui ni kanashimi wa yatte kuru kedo
Nakayoku natte miseru wa
...datte yakusoku yo





A gentle breeze in my hand starts to dance, twinkling, in the light.
Wearing a new smile for the first time,
I could say "Good morning," even to strangers.

When I couldn't see you anymore,
I cried until a clock rusted, but

I'm okay. After the tears have dried,
There's a door to a dream;
I mustn't worry.
If sadness comes again,
I'll smile, just like I'm welcoming a friend.
...It's a promise, for sure.

Downpouring petals whisper, fluttering, on my hair and shoulders.
There are as many partings as meetings.
It's not your fault.

Even though memories may overflow,
I won't lose my good cheer.

I'm okay. Because happiness sneaks in
Through cracks in my fractured heart,
I won't sigh.
Suddenly, sadness comes around, but
I'll make friends with it,
...because it's a promise.

I'm okay. After the tears have dried,
there's a door to a dream;
I mustn't worry.
That's right, I'll simply
smile, just like I'm welcoming a friend.
...It's a promise, for sure.

Suddenly, sadness comes around, but
I'll make friends with it,
...because it's a promise.
