Romaji

Boku no me no mae ni sobieru kaidan
Ikutsu nobottara iki wo tsuite
Raku ni nareru no darou
Nishibi ga sashikomu mado no mukou ni wa
Mirai no keshiki ga mieru no ka?
Yume wa kagayaite iru ka?

Omoide to hikikae ni
Sukoshi zutsu kageri yuku hibi yo
 
Seishun to kidzukanai mama ni
Toki ni nagasarete
Amaeteta seifuku wo nugisutete
Otona ni natteta
Ano koro ni minna de utatta
Messeeji songu
Kashi no imi ga imasara wakatta

Rinoriumu no yuka de naiteta uwabaki
Nanika wo motomete hashirimawari
Yukidomari ni kizutsuki
Shiranu ma ni boku wa arubamu no naka de
Nakama to kata kumi nagara warau
Shashin wo nagamete iru

Atarashii jinsei wa
Sorenari ni tanoshii keredo...

Seishun to kidzukanai mama ni
Toki wa hayaashi de
Kakikake no miraizu wo shuusei shite
Otona to yobareta
Ano koro ni nando mo utatta
Suki datta uta
Ima wa nazeka kashi ga de te konai

Seishun to kidzukanai mama ni
Itsumo taikutsu de
Me no mae no taisetsu na dekigoto made
Misugoshite ita'n da
Kaidan wo youyaku nobotte
Ue made kita kedo
Ima no boku wa uta wo utaenai

English

A staircase looms ahead of me
How many steps do I have to go up
Before I can catch my breath and relax?
The sun in the west shines through the window
If I look out, will I see the landscape of my future?
Are my dreams shining there?

My days darken, little by little
Leaving memories in place of the light

I didn’t appreciate my youth
I got swept away by the passing time
I ripped off the uniform that allowed me to be a kid
And grew up
Now I finally know the meaning
Of the message song
We all sang together then

With my indoor shoes squeaking on the linoleum
I ran around in search of something
I hit a wall and got hurt
And before I know it
I’m looking at pictures in an album
Of my friends and me laughing with our arms round each other

My new life
Is fun too, but...

I didn’t appreciate my youth
Time went by so fast
I revised my half-drawn future map
And called myself an adult
That song we sang all the time then
That song I loved
For some reason I can’t remember it now

I didn’t appreciate my youth
I was always bored
And I overlooked the important events
That were right in front of me
I’ve finally reached the top
Of that staircase
But I can’t sing anymore
