Lyrics

I feel you in my song
Forever…

Tashika ni chikadzuiteta The moment of the end
Minai furi wo shitete mo Can't resist anymore
Karisome no yume yurusarezu ni
Nigerarenai mō kauntodaun

Karamitsuku maboroshi ga Endless regret goes on
Kanashimi ni sasou kara I'm falling deep inside
Nobashita te todokanakute
Sakende mo ienai

Nē, ano hi ni
Ā moshi
Modoreru nara
Kimi no te wo hanasanai

Togireta mama nijimu kotoba
Oikakete mo toikakete mo
Kimi ga inai mama ashita wa kuru
Kotae mo naku samayō kedo

Nigirishimeta kiseki dake wa
Kizutsuite mo nakushite mo
Kono uta no naka ni
Ikidzuiteru
Iki tsudzukeru

Shizuka ni hohoenderu Inside the memories
Yasashisa ga itamu kara Can't face it properly
Nodo no oku shimetsukeru omoi
Nomikomenai demo hakidasenai

"Mata asu ga kuru" nante Too many excuses
Sakinobashi kurikaeshi But time won't wait for me
Dare ni mo yakusoku sareta
Asu nante nai no ni

Ima, tonari ni
Ā moshi
Kimi ga ireba
Nando demo ieru no ni

Kizamareteru kimi no kotoba
Moetsukite mo chirihatete mo
Inori tadoru yō ni miageta sora
Tōi mirai terashite iru

Taguriyoseta kiseki no imi
Kageru tsuki ga kakushite mo
Kono uta wo mune ni
Tsuyoku nareru
Arukidaseru

Wasurerareta nara
Raku ni nareru no?
Demo ano merodi
Kienai ashiato

Togireta mama nijimu kotoba
Oikakete mo toikakete mo
Kimi ga inai mama ashita wa kuru
Kotae mo naku samayō kedo

Nigirishimeta kiseki dake wa
Kizutsuite mo nakushite mo
Kono uta no naka ni
Ikidzuiteru
Iki tsudzukeru

I feel you in my song
Forever…

I feel you in my song
Forever…

確かに近づいてた The moment of the end
見ないふりをしてても Can't resist anymore
仮初めの夢許されずに
逃げられない もうカウントダウン

絡みつく幻影(まぼろし)が Endless regret goes on
哀しみに誘うから I'm falling deep inside
伸ばした手届かなくて
叫んでも 癒えない

ねぇ、あの日に
あぁ もし
戻れるなら
君の手を離さない

途切れたまま滲む言葉
追いかけても 問いかけても
君がいないまま明日は来る
答えもなく彷徨うけど

握りしめた奇蹟だけは
傷ついても 失くしても
この歌のなかに
息づいてる
生き続ける

静かに微笑んでる Inside the memories
優しさが痛むから Can't face it properly
喉の奥 締めつける想い
飲み込めない でも吐き出せない

「また明日が来る」なんて Too many excuses
先延ばし繰り返し But time won't wait for me
誰にも約束された
明日なんてないのに

いま、となりに
あぁ もし
君がいれば
何度でも言えるのに

刻まれてる君の言葉
燃え尽きても 散り果てても
祈り辿るように見上げた空
遠い未来照らしている

手繰り寄せた奇蹟の意味
翳る月が隠しても
この歌を胸に
強くなれる
歩き出せる

忘れられたなら
楽になれるの?
でも あのメロディ
消えない 足跡

途切れたまま滲む言葉
追いかけても 問いかけても
君がいないまま明日は来る
答えもなく彷徨うけど

握りしめた奇蹟だけは
傷ついても 失くしても
この歌のなかに
息づいてる
生き続ける

I feel you in my song
Forever…

I feel you in my song
Forever…

I knew it had drawn near (The moment of the end)
But I pretended not to see it (Can't resist anymore)
I wasn't allowed even a temporary dream
I can't run anymore; it's already counting down

Because my sorrow invited (Endless regret goes on)
Coiling illusions (I'm falling deep inside)
My extended hand doesn't reach you
Even my screams can't fix things

Ah, if only I could
Turn back time
To that day, then
I would never let go of your hand

My words were cut off as they welled up
Though I may chase after them, though I may question them
You still won't be here when tomorrow comes
So I wander, bereft of even an answer, yet—

Even if I damage or lose sight of
This sole miracle I grasped
It will survive
And continue living on
Inside my song

I was smiling quietly (Inside the memories)
Because kindness hurt me (Can't face it properly)
My feelings tightened the inside of my throat
I couldn't swallow them, nor could I spit them out

I kept putting things off (Too many excuses)
Repeating, "Another day will come" (But time won't wait for me)
Even though everyone promised us
That day will never arrive

Ah, if only you were
By my side
Here and now, then
I would say it as many times as I could

Though the words you etched into me
May burn up, or may fall apart
The sky I looked up to, so I could follow your prayers
Is illuminating the distant future

Even if meaning of the miracle I fumbled for
Is hidden by the clouded moon
It will become the strength
Of the song inside my heart
And I'll walk on forwards

Would it be easier if
I just forgot about everything?
But, that melody is
A footprint that'll never disappear

My words were cut off as they welled up
Though I may chase after them, though I may question them
You still won't be here when tomorrow comes
So I wander, bereft of even an answer, yet—

Even if I damage or lose sight of
This sole miracle I've grasped
It will survive
And continue living on
Inside my song

I feel you in my song
Forever…

Trivia

  • The official XV website mistakenly has the regular and limited first-edition album covers for Lasting Song swapped. The covers are assigned to the correct editions on Ayahi Takagaki's website as well as the Sony Music shop.
  • According to an interview with Ayahi Takagaki about the "Lasting Song" single, she included the B-side "IF THE WORLD HAD A SONG" because of how its lyrics overlap with Chris Yukine's wish of bringing peace to the world with her song.[2]
