Lyrics ()
Sayonara to kaita tegami
Teeburu no eu ni kaita yo
Anata no nemuru kao mite
Damate soto e tobi dashita

Itsumo shiawase suguita no ni
Kizukanai futari data
Tsumetai kaze ni fukarete
Yoake no mati o hitori yuku
Warui no wa boku no housa 
Kimi ja nai

Yureteru kishya no mado kara
Tiisaku uti ga mieta toki
Omowazu mune ni sakenda
Kanarazu kaete kuru yo to

Itsumo shiawase suguita no ni
Kizukanai futari data
Furusato e kaeru tizu wa
Namida no umi ni sutete ikou
Warui no wa boku no ho as
Kimi ja nai
Letter that said goodbye
I put it on the table, you know
As I watch you sleeping
Silently, I leave

Although we were always so happy
We never seemed to notice
Blown around by the cold wind
I entered town at dawn
I was the bad one 
Not you

From the window of the steamt rain
I saw the house
and without thinking I choked with sorrow
I promise I'll be back

Although we were always so happy
We never seemed to notice
The map that leads back to our hometown
I'll discard in a sea of tears
I was the bad one, 
Not you
