Lyrics
Mijika ni aru mono
Tsune ni ki wo tsuketeinai to
Amari ni chikasugite
Miushinatte shimaisou

Anata ga saikin taiken s___a
Shiawase wa ittai nan desuka
Megumare sugiteite
Omoidasenai kamo

Ima koko ni iru koto
Iki wo s___eiru koto
Tade sore dake no koto ga
Kiseki da to kizuku

Mijika ni aru mono
Tsune ni ki wo tsuketeinai to
Amari ni chikasugite
Miushinatte shimaisou

You know the closer you get to something
The tougher it is to see it
And i'll never take it for granted
Let's go!

Hitodasuke wo gizen to
Yobu yatsura mo iru kedo
Shinjiru no mo utagau no mo
Hito sorezore dakara

Tatoe kari ni sore ga
Gizen de atta toshite mo
Dareka wo sukueta nara
Soryamushiro nani yori mo zutto

Oitsuzuketekita yume
Akiramezuni susume yo nante
Kirei koto wo ieru hodo
Nanimo dekichainai kedo

Hitonigiri no yuuki wo mune ni
Ashita wo ikinuku tame ni
And ill never take it for granted
Let's go!

Mijika ni arumono
Tsune ni ki wo tsuketeinai to
Amari ni chikasugite
Miushinatte shimaisou

You know the closer you get to something
The tougher it is to see it
And i'll never take it for granted

Oitsuzuketekita yume
Akiramezuni susume you nante
Kirei koto wo ieru hodo
Nanimo dekichainai kedo

Hitonigiri no yuuki wo mune ni
Ashita wo ikinuku tame ni
And ill never take it for granted
Let's go!
