A shot of the city is shown late at night and the sun begins to rise. The scene changes to Sonic sitting on the edge of one of the buildings of the city watching the sun rise. Sonic is then seen walking through a mist in the park toward a tree. Looking closely, he can see Amy standing next to the tree giving a worried look. Sonic and Amy then stare at each other without saying a word.


Japanese English translation

Watashitachi no sekai wa - mahou wo kakerarete
Ai suru to kime kisae - namida ni fuujirareteru
Boy futari de jumon wo sagashi ni ikou
Kinjirare ta yume wo - kanaerareru kuni he

Dare ni mo naisho de - ashita machi awaseshiyou.
Itsuka kotori wo ume ta - yoake no mieru oka de
Tsumetai asamoya - kimi to te wo tsunaidara
Hikaru michi no fuuin ga tokeru yo

Kirawa retakunaikara - kokoro wokakushiteta
Warai kaketekuretane - hontoni ureshikatta
Boy watashi ni yuuki woataetehoshii
Kinoumadeno subete - zero nidekiru chikara

Dare nimo naishode - sotto kuchiduke shiyou
Itsuka yoma nakunatta - furui ehon no youni
Asatsuyu ichimen - kaze gakira mekasetara
Hikaru michi wa massuguni tsuduku yo

Callin' you
Kanashi i yoru ha kimi no namae wo tonae runo
Callin' you
Sore wa sekai no kusari wohodoku jumon nano

Dare nimonaishode- ashita machiawase shiyou
Itsukaminna tabidatsu - mirai no mie ru oka de
Tsume tai asa moya kimi to aru kidashitara
Hikaru michi wa massuguni tsuduku yo

Our world is under a spell
Even the excitement of our love is sealed in our tears
Boy, let's go together to find that charm,
To the land of where forbidden dreams may come true.

Alone, tomorrow, let's secretly meet
Up on the hill where small birds are buried
Some day, when I hold your hand in the cold morning mist
And the seal of the shining road will be broken

I didn't wish to get heartbroken, so I hid my feelings
I was happy, for you gave me that smile.
Boy, give me courage
To make everything that happened zero.

Let's kiss quietly in secret
Like an old picture book we're unable to read
When the wind blows in the morning dew
The shining road will stretch on forever

Callin' you
Calling out your name in a sad night
Callin' you
That will be the key to break the enchantment of the world

Alone, tomorrow, let's secretly meet
On the hill where we can see the future of everyone's journeys
Some day, when I walk with you in the cold morning mist
The shining road will stretch on forever
