Lyrics (TV Edit)

Japanese Kanji Japanese Rōmaji English Translation
あの日夢見た僕らは 間違いじゃないと信じて Ano hi yumemita bokura wa machigai ja nai to shinjite That day, we believed that the our dreamer selves were not wrong
荒くうねる海原を渡って行ける Araku uneru unabara o watatte yukeru And we could go across the rough seas
誰よりも勇敢で思いやりもあるけれど Dare yori mo yuukan de omoiyari mo aru keredo You were braver than anyone else, and considerated too, but
もしも君がこの船を下りて違う世界に居たとしても Moshimo kimi ga kono fune o orite chigau sekai ni ita toshite mo Even if you leave this ship and end up in another world
最後にはきっと笑えるよ Saigo ni wa kitto waraeru yo I'm sure we'll all be able to smile in the end

Lyrics (Full Version)

Japanese Kanji Japanese Rōmaji English Translation
毎日陽が沈むまで 泥まみれになりながら Mainichi hi ga shizumu made doro mamire ni nari nagara Every day until the sun set, we got ourselves dirty with mud
無邪気に過ごした日々も捨て難いけれど Mujaki ni sugoshita hibi mo sutegatai keredo Those days that we spent so innocently are also hard to throw away, but
夢見る僕が居てもそれはそれで僕だから Yumemiru boku ga ite mo sore wa sore de boku dakara I'm a dreamer, and that's just how I am, so
ジグソーパズルみたいにはまってなくて良い Jigusoo pazuru mitai ni hamatte nakute ii It's alright if you don't fit in like a jigsaw puzzle
誰かの"Yes"が君にとって"No"であるのと同じように Dareka no "YES" ga kimi ni totte "NO" de aru no to onaji you ni To you, when someone says "Yes" it's the same as if they said "No"
いつだって自由なはずだから Itsudatte jiyuu na hazu dakara You were always trying to be free
明日 風が通り抜けた時にパズルが欠けていたとしても Ashita kaze ga toori nuketa toki ni pazuru ga kakete ita to shite mo Tomorrow when the wind blows through, even if the puzzle is incomplete
誰もそれを責めたりしないよ Daremo sore o semetari shinai yo No one will blame us
あの日夢見た僕らは 間違いじゃないと信じて Ano hi yumemita bokura wa machigai ja nai to shinjite That day, we believed that the our dreamer selves were not wrong
荒くうねる海原を渡って行ける Araku uneru unabara o watatte yukeru And we could go across the rough seas
君の胸の痛みだって 僕らは知っているから Kimi no mune no itami datte bokura wa shitte iru kara I always knew about the pain you carried in your heart
もしも君がこの船を下りて違う世界に居たとしても Moshimo kimi ga kono fune o orite chigau sekai ni ita toshite mo Even if you leave this ship and end up in another world
最後にはきっと笑えるよ Saigo ni wa kitto waraeru yo I'm sure we'll all be able to smile in the end
今でも僕らは夢を見ているよ Ima demo bokura wa yume o mite iru yo Even now, we are dreaming
託されたその想いも乗せて Takusareta sono omoi mo nosete Riding along with those feelings entrusted to us
荒れたこの海原を痛みと戦って今日も行く Areta kono unabara o itami to tatakatte kyou mo yuku We'll fight our pain and keep going over the rough seas today, too
約束が嘘にならないように Yakusoku ga uso ni nara nai you ni So that our promises will not become lies
そしていつか Soshite itsuka And then, one day
僕らの船を下りた違う世界に居る君に Bokura no fune o orita chigau sekai ni iru kimi ni To you who left our ship and are now in another world
完成したパズルを届けよう Kansei shita pazuru o todokeyou I will send that completed puzzle

FUNimation lyrics

We had a dream that day

Our belief in ourselves

makes us able to cross the wildly surging ocean

You're braver and more caring than anyone else

If you ever depart this ship and live in a different world

In the end, we can all surely smile

~ Goodbye Merry. ~
