Lyrics & Music: Yuuko Suzuhana
Translation by Aka

水に浮かぶ 月あかり揺らす
そっと差し伸べた指の先 こぼれる 涙
.
mizu ni ukabu tsuki akari yurasu
sotto sashinobeta yubi no saki koboreru namida
.
Floating in the water, the moonlight sways
At the end of my gently outstretched finger, tears flow
.
(*)逢いたいと願う夢は 鳥のように 空へ高く
風と共に どこまで飛んで 波に映る影を追いかけていた
.
(*)aitai to negau yume wa tori no you ni sora e takaku
kaze to tomo ni doko made tonde namida ni utsuru kage wo oikaketeita
.
(*)In my dream where I wish to see you, I fly high in the sky like a bird
Flying wherever along with the wind, chasing shadows on the waves
.
(**)今すぐ君の元まで
このまま飛んでゆきたい
あの日にまだ伝えられずに
心の奥に潜めた全てを語ろう
.
(**)ima sugu kimi no moto made
kono mama tondeyukitai
ano hi ni mada tsutaerarezu ni
