Lyrics[]

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
想いの冒険を omoi no bouken o
忘れずに全部言えるかな wasurezu ni zenbu ieru kana
君から聞きたいよ kimi kara kikitai yo
何回目の僕に出会った? nankaime no boku ni deatta?
僕は変わりました boku wa kawarimashita
新しい君に出会うために atarashii kimi ni deau tame ni
久しぶりだねって hisashiburi da ne tte
言えたならここで泣こっか ieta nara koko de nakokka

好きとかって suki to ka tte
嫌いとかって kirai to ka tte
何度だって愛を歌う君が nando datte ai o utau kimi ga
恋しくって koishikutte
嘘じゃない本当だよ uso ja nai hontou da yo
また出会おう mata deaou

僕ら“II”を嫌って bokura “ni” o kiratte
“I”に戻って “ichi” ni modotte
何回だって nankai datte
間違ってきたよ machigatte kita yo
消えない後悔と kienai koukai to
冷めない愛情が samenai aijou ga
恋を再起動(リブート)する koi o ribuuto suru

ほら“I”を嫌って hora “ichi” o kiratte
また“II”に戻って mata “ni” ni modotte
“III”になって “san” ni natte
愛を繋いでいこう ai o tsunaide ikou
言いたい感情は iitai kanjou wa
伝えたい正解は tsutaetai seikai wa
たったひとつだけ tatta hitotsu dake
ありがとう arigatou

想いの冒険は omoi no bouken wa
これからもちゃんと続いていく kore kara mo chanto tsuzuite iku
3と9に乗って san to kyuu ni notte
言葉とか飛び越えちゃって kotoba to ka tobikoechatte
君も変わりました kimi mo kawarimashita
新しい誰かに会うために atarashii dareka ni au tame ni
大人になりました otona ni narimashita
それだけで良いと思えた sore dake de ii to omoeta

好きとかって suki to ka tte
嫌いとかって kirai to ka tte
何度だって愛を歌う君が nando datte ai o utau kimi ga
恋しくって koishikutte
嘘じゃない本当だよ uso ja nai hontou da yo
また出会おう mata deaou

“恋”をして …バカ。 “koi” o shite …baka.
“愛”にして …バカ。 “ai” ni shite …baka.
バカでいい baka de ii
この先もずっとこのまま kono saki mo zutto kono mama
…バカ。 …baka.

僕ら“II”を嫌って bokura “ni” o kiratte
