Kanji Romaji English Translation
冷蔵庫に貼り付けたままの
見知らぬ国の風景は
探し続ける道の途中で
切り取った君の便り

遠い空の下で君が見たものは
僕の知らない世界だけど
いつでも冷蔵庫を開いたら
そこにあるようで

君が何処か遠くで触れるものすべてが
僕に何か伝えようとして
こんな平凡な暮らしに光を分けてくれる
何か見つけるために遠い世界の果て
今この瞬間も生きている
そんな君を思う度にいつも励まされながら
僕は歩いてる

ありふれた日常繰り返し
いつかくたびれた心
退屈はいつもそこら中で
僕にまとわりついてる

たまに君を羨んで自分の暮らしが
嫌になってしまうけれど
そういう当たり前の生活が
僕を支えている

いつの日か僕たちがが同じ空の下で
同じ時を過ごせるのならば
きっとお互いの暮らしの中で道を探して
何か見つけるために君の進む道は
一枚の絵葉書の向こうで
今も遠い日差しの中どこまでも続いて
夢に近づくよ

君が何処か遠くで触れるものすべてが
僕に何か伝えようとして
こんな平凡な暮らしに光を分けてくれる
何か見つけるために君の進む道は
一枚の絵葉書の向こうで
今も遠い日差しの中どこまでも続いて
夢に近づくよ

いつかまた会う時まで
それぞれの道を
歩き続けよう

The landscape of a country I don't know
is pasted on my refrigerator.
I keep searching down the center of the path
for your cut out letter.

What you've seen is far beneath the open sky,
but my world remains unknown.
Opening the refrigerator like always,
it's right there.

Everything that you touch somewhere in the distance
is handed back to me,
giving me a light that divides life into ordinary pieces.
With you searching for something at the far end of the world,
even now, I'm still alive,
always having your support in such times as these.
I'm walking.

My heart is tired of these
repeating mundane days.
Boredom is always
clinging on to me.

Even though I'm tired of my life,
and sometimes jealous of you,
I'll keep supporting
such a natural life.

Someday we will be under the same sky
and spend the same time together,
probably searching for another path for our lives to take.
With you searching for something down the path,
I have the other side of the postcard,
continuing on in the far sunlight, even now.
I'm approaching a dream.

Everything that you touch somewhere in the distance
is handed back to me,
giving me a light that divides life into ordinary pieces.
With you searching for something down the path,
I have the other side of the postcard,
continuing on in the far sunlight, even now.
I'm approaching a dream.

Until we someday meet again,
each of us will walk
our own paths.
