輝く星たち 永遠を照らしてよ
kagayaku hoshitachi eien o terashite yo
Oh, twinkling stars, shine on eternally,
不確かな世界 その全て許すように
futashika na sekai sono subete yurusu you ni
Forgive everything in this uncertan world

いくつ願いを紡いだら 叶う日が来る?
ikutsu negai o tsumuidara kanau hi ga kuru?
How many wishes must be spun together for them to come true?

届け遥か空へ 明日へのキズナ
todoke haruka sora e asu e no kizuna
Reach for the faraway skies, the bonds to tomorrow
手のひらに芽ばえた揺るがぬ光は
te no hira ni mebaeta yuruganu hikari wa
The unwavering light in my hands,
私の希望の証と信じている
watashi no kibou no akashi to shinjite iru
Will continue to be the symbol of my hope
I’ll pray forever

微かな三日月 温もりで満たしてよ
kasuka na mikazuki nukumori de mitashite yo
Oh, faint crescent moon please fill with warmth
ひび割れた誓い 痛みさえ包むように
hibiwareta chikai itami sae tsutsumu you ni
Please heal the pain from broken promises

風にこぼれたあの夢に 巡り合えるだろう?
kaze ni koboreta ano yume ni meguriaeru darou?
If the window blows away the broken dreams, will we ever find them again?

届け夜を越えて 明日へのキズナ
todoke yoru o koete asu e no kizuna
Reach beyond the night, the bonds of tomorrow
刹那さの向こうで目覚める強さが
setsunasa no mukou de mezameru tsuyosa ga
Have the power to wake up in the moment,
私を導く印と抱きしめてる
watashi o michibiku shirushi to dakishimeteru
I will hold onto the symbol that guides me
Found my destiny

想い深く灯せ 明日へのキズナ
omoi fukaku tomose asu e no kizuna
Illuminate the deepest thoughts, the bonds of tomorrow
明けて行く彼方で産まれた輝き
akete yuku kanata de umareta kagayaki
The light that opens the way beyond all boundaries,
私を導く印と抱きしめてる
watashi o michibiku shirushi to dakishimeteru
I will hold onto the symbol that guides me
Found my destiny

届け遥か空へ 明日へのキズナ
todoke haruka sora e asu e no kizuna
Reach for the faraway skies, the bonds to tomorrow
手のひらに芽ばえた揺るがぬ光は
te no hira ni mebaeta yuruganu hikari wa
The unwavering light in my hands,
私の希望の証と信じている
watashi no kibou no akashi to shinjite iru
Will continue to be the symbol of my hope
I’ll pray forever
抱きしめてる
dakishimeteru
I’ll keep holding on
Found my destiny
