Romaji

Kanashimi no tama ni uchinukare
Mune kara namida afureru
Iki mo tomari sou na yoru mo
Yagate tsugi no asa ga kuru

Hito no kokoro wa
Sonna yawa ja nai
Motto
Tsuyoku dekiteru
Tafu na mono sa
Kizutsuku tabi
Kasabuta ni naru yo

Mae ni taorero!
Chikara tsukite mo...
Sono te wo nobase!
Tsukame!
Mae ni taorero!
Yume wo minagara...
Sore ga tadashii shini kata da
Ikiru mono yo

Are you alive?

Hitomi wo tsumutta mama demo
Nanika wo kanjiru darou
Mabuta ga atsuku natte kuru
Are ga yoake no hikari da

Shinjiru koto wa
Yasashii koto ja nai
Dakedo
Hoka no hito ni wa
Mienai mono
Mieru koto ga
Kibou ni naru'n da

Ushiro wo muku na!
Shippai shite mo...
Te wo yurumeru na!
Souda...
Ushiro wo muku na!
Soko wo nigeru na
Tatoe kimi shika inakute mo...
Ikiru mono he

Are you alive?

Nani ga attatte
Maenomeri ni ikiru koto
Yume wo miru jikan dake ga
Nagaku naru

Mae ni taorero!
Chikara tsukite mo...
Sono te wo nobase!
Tsukame!
Mae ni taorero!
Yume wo minagara...
Sore ga tadashii shini kata da
Ikiru mono yo

Are you alive?

English

Even on nights when a ball of sadness is fired through you
And tears well up from your heart
Until you feel like you can’t breathe
The next morning will eventually come

Our hearts
Aren’t that weak
We’re made
Of stronger stuff than that
We’re tough
Every time we get hurt
Our wounds become calluses.

Fall forward!
Even if you run out of strength...
Reach out!
Grab it!
Fall forward!
Dreaming the whole time...
That’s the right way to die
Those who are alive

Are you alive?

Even if your eyes are closed
You still feel something
There’s a heat on your eyelids
That’s the light of dawn

Believing
Isn’t easy
But
You’ll see
Something other people
Can’t see
And that will give you hope

Don’t look back!
Even if you fail...
Don’t let up!
That’s right...
Don’t look back!
Don’t run away
Even if there’s nobody there but you...
To those who are alive

Are you alive?

No matter what
Live facing forward
It’ll give you more time
To dream

Fall forward!
Even if you run out of strength...
Reach out!
Grab it!
Fall forward!
Dreaming the whole time...
That’s the right way to die
Those who are alive

Are you alive?
