Track Name: Overseas
My eyes are full of the gleaming city lights
I’ve climbed mountains to see the sunrise
There’s something I know I’m searching for
I can’t describe this wanderlust

So forget me
Leave me by the hillside
‘Cause overseas
Time waits for no man
Though the seasons flow on by
I come back here again

Single fleeting moments around me
They turn into an eternity
Though the weeks turn to years
Time marches ever on

So forget me
Leave me by the hillside
‘Cause overseas
Time waits for no man
Though the seasons flow on by
I come back here again

I’m sitting alone on the first train home
Bleary eyes observing the drone
And though my pockets are empty now
My heart weighs me down like a stone

So forget me
Leave me by the hillside
‘Cause overseas
Time waits for no man
Though the seasons flow on by
I come back here again

So forget me
Leave me by the hillside
‘Cause overseas
Time waits for no man
Though the seasons flow on by
I come back here again
Track Name: Overseas (Japanese Version)
踏み出した夜の街は
光に包まれていた
探しものがある
心の旅に出よう

「忘れよう」と言いたいけど
この記憶は何より大切だ
瞬間の連なりが
過去とつなげてくれた

最終電車からの風景を
眺めていたら
人混みの中では
希望の欠けらさえなかった

「忘れよう」と言いたいけど
この記憶は何より大切だ
瞬間の連なりが
過去とつなげてくれた

薄暗い部屋で
このペンをつかんでいた
飛び回る思いを
おさめることもできない

「忘れよう」と言いたいけど
この記憶は何より大切だ
瞬間の連なりが
過去とつなげてくれた

「忘れよう」と言いたいけど
この記憶は何より大切だ
瞬間の連なりが
過去とつなげてくれた
