Ano hi no uta ga nagare
Tokei ga makimodosarete
Namida ga tomaranaku nata
Kioku no takaramono

Nanimo wakaranai mama
Yume wo miteta watashi ni
Te wo sashinobete kureta
“Ichiban daiji na koto wa
Mae wo muiteru koto da”
Unazuite genki gad eta

Anata ga ite kureta kara
Dokomademo aruketan da
Tsurai toki wa furikaette
Sono sugata wo tashikameta
Anata ga ite kureta kara
Akiramezu yatte korareta
Watashi ni totte
Anata wa zutto
Soko de yasashiku mimamoru
Hometown

Ninen no toki ga nagare
Shibaraku aenakatta ne
Sore demo wasurete nakatta
Kokoro no ano hinata

Fui no sayonara datta
Dare no sei demo nakute
Tada chigau michi wo yuku
“Yume wa nigetari shinai
Akiramenakareba...”
Hohoende itte kureta

Anata ni ouen sarete
Kono michi wo shinjite kita
Itsuka kitto saikai shite
Ganbari wo homeraretai
Anata ni ouen sarete
Massugu ni mayou koto naku...
Anata no mune de
Nakitakatta yo
Ai wa tookute chikakute
Hometown

Otona ni nareta deshou ka?
Ano koro no watashi yori mo...
Osanasugite nanimo miezu
Wagamama wo itteta hibi
Otona ni nareta deshou ka?
Ikutsumo no namida nagashite
Youyaku koko e
Kaette kita yo
Ah ookina sasae wa

Anata ga ite kureta kara

English

The song from that day played
Turning back the clock
And I couldn’t stop crying
At that treasure of a memory

When I was dreaming
Not knowing anything
You gave me your hand and said
“The most important thing
Is to keep looking forward”
I nodded and felt better

Because you were there for me
I’ve been able to walk so far
When it got tough, I looked back
To make sure you were still there
Because you were there for me
I’ve been able to come so far without giving up
For me
You’ll always be there
Looking out for me
Hometown

Two years have gone by
And I haven’t been able to see you for a while
But I’ve never forgotten
That sunshine in my heart

It was a sudden goodbye
Nobody’s fault
We just went our separate ways
You smiled and said
“Your dreams won’t slip away
As long as you don’t give up...”

With your support
I was able to believe in this road
Someday I want to see you again
So you can praise me for how hard I’ve worked
With your support
I’ve been able to move straight forward without hesitating
I’ve wanted
To cry in your arms
Your love is so far away yet so close
Hometown

Have I grown up
Since then?
Those days when I was so childish
I couldn’t see anything and just said selfish things
Have I grown up?
After all the tears I cried
I’ve finally made it
Back here
Ah, you’re such a big support to me
Hometown

Because you were there for me
I’ve been able to walk so far
When it got tough, I looked back
To make sure you were still there
Because you were there for me
I’ve been able to come so far without giving up
For me
You’ll always be there
Looking out for me
Hometown

Ah, you’re such a big support to me
