Even now I don't understand

The meaning of growing up

But I wonder where that girl

Oor that boy from my memory

Is now walking and trying for

Daybreak was early this time.

The scent of the wind has changed

It seems familiar and strange

At the same time

It makes my heartbeat quicker

I miss it so much it hurts.

As we naively continued on this road to the sea

We fell over laughing in those far away summer days

The childhood memories are still in my heart

We had no way of knowing what waited ahead in the future.

We ran through that distant summer day,

Innocently rolling with laughter down the path to that sea.

I just want to return to the days

Where we worried about what we'll do

And how far we will go

But since then, I've looked for and found

Some things, just to lose them

Over and over again.

What is left is what we chose to keep,

It's not unexpected at all

If the universe has a will

I think it surely worked for us

Caring and treasuring us.

Your smile has taught me

That we are now

In the closest place to eternity.
