hitori de wa, tooi ashita o
yoake no mama de, koesou de
BUTSUkatteikya, KOKEru omoi yo
konya mo mata, sure chigai

(Instrumental Bridge)

sanzan sugite doryoku no ato mo
nakunaru kekka only, no tsuna watari
yaru dake son suru yo na mainichi wa
sha ni kamaeteta hou koso raku ni naru

(atsukute) tsurai
(jibun wo) kakushite
(mijikai) toki o ikiteru

hitori de wa, tooi ashita o
yoake no mama de, koesou de
hottokeba, hashiru omoi yo
yume mo mata, sure chigai

kanpeki to chau jinsei no shuushi
PURA MAI ~ ZERO da nanteba HONTO ka na?
shinu made ni tsukaikiru un no kazu
semete jibun de dashiire o sasete

(WAKATcha) inai
(kimi nara) dou ni demo
(rikutsu wo) kaete ii no ni

nando kimi ni, ketsu mazuitemo
modottekichau, aijou ni
shinjikaneru, utaretsuyosa yo
konya mo SO-TO-, nemurenai

(Instrumental Break)

nando nankai, kurikaeshitemo
modottekichau, ai dakara
BUTSUkatteiku, kesenu omoi o
semeru hou ga, suji chigai

hitori de wa, tooi ashita o
yoake no mama de, koeteyuku
aishou yori mo, fukai futari wa
sure chigatte kamawanai

Alone, in the stillness of dawn,
I seem to cross the distant tomorrow, and...
Struggling, emotions breaking down,
It won't go well between us again tonight.

(Instrumental Bridge)

Even after so much extreme effort,
it only results in death, like walking a tightrope.
Inflicting damage is my daily life.
Maybe taking a cynical attitude will give me comfort.

(Burning) like Hell
(Hiding) myself
(Living) for only a short time

Alone, in the stillness of dawn,
I seem to cross the distant tomorrow, and...
If I let my rushing emotions free,
my dreams won't go well again tonight.

The balance sheet of my life isn't perfect.
Do the PLUSes and MINUSes really equal ZERO?
Being used up until they die, the luck of many.
At least I determine my own actions.

(You don't) understand,
(because) you can
(change your) logic at your will.

I hurt myself because of you, over and over.
But I always return to your love.
The strength that comes from damage is unbelievable.
I won't get much sleep again tonight.

(Instrumental Break)

No matter how many times it's repeated,
it always returns, because it's love.
Going to fight, all emotions disappear.
It would be wrong to blame me for that.

Alone, in the stillness of dawn,
I'm going to cross the distant tomorrow.
We have something that's even deeper than affection.
So I don't care about our differences at all.
