Lyrics (Matsumoto Takashi)
[Man]
Koibito yo boku wa tabidatsu
Higashi he to mukau ressha de
Hanayaida machi de
Kimi he no okuri mono
Sagasu sagasu tsumori da

[Woman]
Iie anata watashi wa
Hoshii mono wa nai no yo
Tada tokai no enogu ni
Somara nai de kaette
Somara nai de kaette

[Man]
Koibito yo hantoshi ga sugi
Ae nai ga naka nai de kure
Tokai de ryuukou no yubiwa wo okuru yo
Kimi ni kimi ni niau hazu da

[Woman] 
Iie hoshi no DAIYA mo
Umi ni nemuru shinju mo
Kitto anata no KISU hodo
Kirameku hazu nai mono
Kirameku hazu nai mono

[Man]
Koibito yo ima mo sugao de
Kuchibeni mo tsuke nai mama ka
Mimachigau you na
SUUTSU kita boku no
Shashin shashin wo mite kure

[Woman] 
Iie kusa ni nekorobu
Anata ga suki datta no
Demo kogarashi no BIRU gai
Karada ni ki wo tsukete ne
Karada ni ki wo tsukete ne

[Man]
Koibito yo kimi wo wasurete
Kawatteku boku wo yurushite
Mainichi yukai ni sugosu machikado
Boku wa boku wa kaere nai

[Woman] 
Anata saigo no wagamama
Okuri mono wo nedaru wa
Nee namida fuku momen no
HANKACHIIFU kudasai
HANKACHIIFU kudasai
[Man]
Oh my love, I'm going on on a journey 
leaving on an eastbound train 
In the lit-up city,
I plan to spend my time 
searching, searching for something to give you

[Woman] 
No, dear, 
There's nothing I want. 
Except for you to come back 
not dyed in city colors 
not dyed in city colors

[Man] 
Oh my love, half a year has passed 
We haven't seen each other, but please don't cry. 
I'm sending you a ring that's fashionable in town right now 
It suits you, it suits you, as it should 

[Woman] 
No, even diamonds of the stars 
Even pearls sleeping in the sea 
I'm sure nothing but your kiss 
could surpass their shine 
could surpass their shine

[Man] 
Oh my love, you're still innocent 
You don't even wear lipstick, do you? 
You might not recognize me 
Look at this photograph of me 
dressed in a fancy suit 

[Woman] 
No, I liked 
the sight of you lying in the grass 
But now you're in a cold city blowing winty wind 
Please take care of yourself 
Please take care of yourself

[Man] 
Oh my love, I'm forgetting you 
Please forgive me for changing 
Every day I'm happy spending my time on street corner 
I can't, I can't return home 

[Woman] 
Dear, I have just one 
last request 
To wipe my tears 
send me a cotton handkerchief, please 
send me a cotton handkerchief, please
