Where are you at?
Where have you been?
問いかけに答えはなく
Where are we headed?
What did you mean?
追いかけても 遅く 遠く

A bird, a butterfly, and my red scarf
Don’t make a mess of memories
Just let me heal your scars
The wall, the owl and forgotten wharf
時が止まることもなく
We’re getting older second by second by second

Why oh why, Why oh why
Don’t you want to stay with me?
Why oh why, Why oh why
Are you giving up on me?
I’ll be waiting, waiting for you
Let me hold you under the tree
Under the tree

I’ll protect you

Where are you at?
Where have you been?
Toikake ni kotae wa naku
Where are we headed?
What did you mean?
Oikaketemo osoku tooku

A bird, a butterfly, and my red scarf
Don’t make a mess of memories
Just let me heal your scars
The wall, the owl and forgotten wharf
Toki ga tomaru koto mo naku
We’re getting older second by second by second

Why oh why, Why oh why
Don’t you want to stay with me?
Why oh why, Why oh why
Are you giving up on me?
I’ll be waiting, waiting for you
Let me hold you under the tree
Under the tree

I’ll protect you

Where are you at?
Where have you been?
There are no answers for my questions
Where are we headed?
What did you mean?
It’s too late, too far to follow after you

A bird, a butterfly, and my red scarf
Don’t make a mess of memories
Just let me heal your scars
The wall, the owl and forgotten wharf
Our time is running out
We’re getting older second by second by second

Why oh why, Why oh why
Don’t you want to stay with me?
Why oh why, Why oh why
Are you giving up on me?
I’ll be waiting, waiting for you
Let me hold you under the tree
Under the tree

I’ll protect you

Why oh why, Why oh why
Are you giving up on me?
I’ll be waiting, waiting for you
Let me hold you under the tree
Under the tree

I’ll protect you

Why were you crying?
What are you dying for?
Your dream, did it satisfy or terrify?
Annoying pain in my head
The things left unsaid
I'm sorry, we had been relying on you too much to be free

Why oh why, Why oh why
Don’t you want to stay with me?
Why oh why, Why oh why
Are you giving up on me?

"I'm here, so we don't need to talk"
"I'm here, so we don't need to talk"
"I'm here, so we don't need to talk"
"I'm here to tell you there's no need to talk"

"YOU'RE FREE"

This is already enough
We'll figure out the rest
Let me shoulder your sins together
With you

People may not call it love
And we won't be blessed
But let me shoulder your sins together
For you

If I lose it all

I’ll be waiting, waiting for you
Let me hold you under the tree
Under the tree

I’ll protect you

Where are you at?
Where have you been?
Toikake ni kotae wa naku

Ending animation[]

It begins with only a black screen, followed by a shooting from above of the lower half of the body of a person walking down an unpaved path with grass on the sides. After a few tens of steps, the screen fades back to black.

After some more time, new, still images appear on the screen one after the other. They depict a flock of birds soaring in the sky above a forest, their loosened feathers fluttering in the air.

The camera goes back to the initial shooting, but at some point, as the person continues their walk, the image blurs and three stills are superimposed on to it: the tree under which Eren Jaeger was sleeping in Episode 1; the Coordinate at the center of the Paths, which also resembles a tree; and the tree beneath which Ymir Fritz obtained the Power of the Titans. The screen goes black one last time.
