Tenshininante Narenakatta

Words by Uesugi Shou/Music by Shibasaki Hiroshi/Arrangement by Hayama Takeshi

Baggu ni Meiippai no Yume wo Tsumekonda
(I packed my bag full of dreams)
Chippokena Izakoza de Atsuku natte
(When things got hot over a very small quarrel)
Ie wo tobidashita Tooi natsu no MEMORY
(I rushed out of the house -- The MEMORY of a distant summer)
Ano hi no Boku wa Kowai mono shirazu datta
(Those days I did not know of frightening things)

Yuuki sae areba Subete wo Kaerukoto mo Tayasui to shinjiteta
(I believed that if only I have courage I can easily change everything)

"Tenshi ni datte nareru" tte Hokori mamire no machi ni Dakare
([Thinking] "I can become even an angel" I was embraced by a street covered with dust)
Tenshi no you na Kegarenai Hohoemi sae mo Wasureteita
(I forgot even the smile that's pure as an angel)
Meguru Jidai no naka de
(In the spinning times)

Itsushika Ikiru tame ni Sono kokoro kezutte
(Before one knows In order to live This heart is pared)
Hagukunda Yume sae mo Kyuukutsu ni naru
(Even this dream that I brought up Becomes oppressed)
Hetakusona gitaa Kakinarasu sono tabi
(The time I accustom myself to playing this extremely clumsy guitar)
Mune no takanari Osaekirenai keredo
(But I cannot suppress the throbbing in my heart)

Mekki darake no machi dakara Shitsubou ni kono subete wo someraresou
(Because the street is covered with gilt It's as if I can dye disappointment with this everything)

Tenshi ni nante narenakatta Boku no naka no yuganda kokoro
(I could not become an angel The distorted heart inside me)
Tenshi no you ni Habataite Haruka Tooku kiete naku nare
(Flap [wings] like an angel and disappear far and away)
Asu wo utsushita Sora e...
(To the sky that reflects tomorrow [the future]...)

"Tenshi ni datte nareru" tte Hokori mamire no machi ni Dakare
([Thinking] "I can become even an angel" I was embraced by a street covered with dust)
Tenshi no you na Kegarenai Hohoemi sae mo Wasureteita
(I forgot even the smile that's pure as an angel)

Tenshi ni nante narenakatta Boku no naka no yuganda kokoro
(I could not become an angel The distorted heart inside me)
Tenshi no you ni Habataite Haruka Tooku kiete naku nare
(Flap [wings] like an angel and disappear far and away)
Asu wo utsushita Sora e...
(To the sky that reflects tomorrow [the future]...)
