Japanese & English Lyrics
(LET’S START) hajimemashou yo
Futari no monogatari
Nee tamerawanaide saisho no SUTEPPU
(LET’S TRY)
Dokidoki shiteru kimochi wa onaji nano
Mou tomerarenai ne kakedasu tokimeki
Mune no naka de egaku chizu wa
Doko e to tsuzuiteru no
Mayoinagara aseranaide
Tashikamete mitai

(LET’S START) Let’s begin!
Our story
Hey, I don’t want to falter on that final step
(LET’S TRY)
Our heartbeats are racing; our feelings are not at all the same;
We can’t stop, can we? This fuse has been lit . . .
Inside my heart, I imagine there’s a map
Leading to someplace.
I don’t want to hurry into effortless infatuation;
I want to see confirmation

(PLEASE MR. SUNSHINE) kimi no egao ga
(I’M LIKE A MOONLIGHT) watashi wo terasu
Dakara itsumo kagayaiteite
(PLEASE MR. SUNSHINE) yume oikakeru
(I’M LIKE A MOONLIGHT) hitomi ga suki yo
Demo muchuu de kono te hanasanaide

(PLEASE MR. SUNSHINE) Your smile
(I’M LIKE A MOONLIGHT) Shine it on me
Keep shining forever.
(PLEASE MR. SUNSHINE) I’ll chase after the dream
(I’M LIKE A MOONLIGHT) I adore your gaze
But, as if in a trance, I don’t want to let go of that hand.

(LET’S TRY) tsuzukemashou yo
Ashita ga tookute mo
Nee akiramenaide mou ichido SUTEPPU
(LET’S TRY) shinjiteiru no
Kokoro wo awasetara
Sou yukitai basho e kanarazu ikeru to

(LET’S KEEP) Let’s keep on going!
Tomorrow is such a distant place . . .
Hey, I don’t want to lose out on one more step
(LET’S TRY) I believe
When we unite our hearts
We will certainly go where we want to, if we can.

Toki no PEEJI mekuru tabi ni
Tomadoi fueru keredo
Kinou yori mo wakariaeru
Futari ni naritai

On our journey, we turn time’s page
My bewilderment increases, but still
Out of yesterday, I can understand:
I want the two of us to become one.

*(PLEASE MR. SUNSHINE) kimi no yuuki ga
 (I’M LIKE A MOONLIGHT) watashi wo kaeru
 Sou yo ima wa mitsumete hoshii
 (PLEASE MR. SUNSHINE) setsunasa nante
 (I’M LIKE A MOONLIGHT) keshichau kurai
 Atsui kaze de kimi ni makiconde yo

*(PLEASE MR. SUNSHINE) Your courage
 (I’M LIKE A MOONLIGHT) Return it to me
 Now I want you to gaze on me
 (PLEASE MR. SUNSHINE) Why this loneliness?
 (I’M LIKE A MOONLIGHT) The darkness is fading
 Please, enfold me beside you in the hot wind.

*REPEAT
