“little smile”
Lyrics: Akihiro Hino
Composition: Noriyasu Agematsu
Vocals: Megu Sakuragawa


Ahead of where you gaze upon with your little eyes
is a future where we all smile together
From the sky where even the tears of sadness are forgotten
comes overflowing light

I felt my hands could reach the clouds poking through the four-cornered sky
And that was where my journey began
The promise we both exchanged that day connects our hearts
I walk forward hoping to meet you someday

Everything reflected in these eyes is like a dream
Even now, it feels like it might disappear
So I’m wishing for something more certain

This is something we can do, we can create the future
The world invisible to adults
We’ll run past it all, towards a shining tomorrow
At the end of this long journey
We’ll meet with a little smile

What lies beyond that fate, unknown to us all?
The road continues on with no end
The sadness engraved in my heart beats down and flows in the rain
I believe the time of my relief will come someday

Once time has passed, we can’t return to it
There will be days of regrets
But someday, I’ll run into you by chance

This is something we’ll see, when we can embrace those we love someday
The day must come when we can all laugh together
We’ll run past it all, towards a gleaming tomorrow
On the other side of that rainbow
We’ll meet with a little smile

(little smile, ah…)
(little smile, ah…)

Although what you’ve grasped in your little hands
are nothing but tiny fragments of hope
The strength to overcome anything
The courage undefeated by all
That’s what it will become

This is something we can do, we can change the future
The world invisible to adults
We’ll run past it all, towards an unknown tomorrow
At the end of this long journey
We’ll meet with a little smile

In the future that you gaze upon with your little eyes
Everyone is smiling
