aiiro no sora de akaitsuki yurete ieji miushinau tori no you ni
tooi roji ura de kuruisou na koe de nakama shinobi naku neko no you ni
hiza wo kakaete utsurou hitomi de garasu goshi ni nani wo miteru no
kandou janakute zanzou janakute surinuketetta ai no shinkirou
itsumade soko ni iru no nigashita ai wa mou keshite modoranai no ni
☆ kagirinai sora wo uketomete somaranai naka wo misete
togirenai toki no hakanasa wo subete dakitomete yuke
tenshi yo, iki wo suikonde futatabi sora wo mezase
chigireta tsubasa nugisutete omou mama ni
yuutousei janai kaikinshou iranai hito no yasashisa shittesae ireba
nigedashite mo ii tachidomatte ii soko kara mata aruki daseru sa
dokomademo ikite yuke nagashita namida wa keshite uragiranai sa
★ hateshinai sora wo kakenukete kawaranai naka wo misete
tomaranai toki no setsunasa wo kakaenori koete yuke
tenshi yo iki wo hakidashite oshiminai ai wo furase
sadame no tsubasa tsukiru made nozomu mama ni
In the somber sky, the blood-red moon flickers like a bird that lost its way home
You're like a cat yowling crazily yet secretly for its friends in a remote alley
What are you looking at with a hollow gaze through the window, while hugging your knees?
The mirage of a love that slipped past you wasn't a wave of emotions nor was it an afterimage
How long are you going to stay there? The love that you let go of will never return
☆Take in the boundless azure sky and show me your unblemished heart
Catch all of those nonstop moments for how fleeting they are
Oh angel, take a breath and aim for the heavens once more
Strip off your tattered wings and go do as you like
You're not some honor student nor do you want an award for perfect attendance; if you know how kind people are,
then it doesn't matter whether you run away or stand still, you'll be able to start walking again from there
So live forever, the tears that you've shed were never in vain
★Dash through the endless azure sky and enthrall me with your unchanged heart
Overcome the pain of the unceasing flow of time as you hold it
Oh angel, breathe out and make love fall generously from above
Until your wings of fate are gone, go do as you want
