青に 描いてみる 繰り返す度 時から 逃げ出すように 心をロックして
(I try to depict it in blue, and everytime I do, ready to make a run for it, I seal my heart away)
耳をすませば そっと聞こえる 自分の 弱さの鼓動 鳴り止まないのかな?
(If I listen well, I can softly hear, the throb of my own weakness, I wonder if it'll ever die down?)

(Racing breath, bouncing feet, chasing after it, even asking about it)
ほら 届かない 想いが流れて
