Lyrics

Japanese English
泣き止んだ 雲のあいだから覗く太陽
日差しのスコール あわてて首を上げる向日葵
水たまり 飛び跳ねた君が振り向いて
笑顔こぼしながらほら 僕の名前 呼んでる

たまらず右腕 つかんで 駆け上がった坂道
追い風が背中を押してくれる

抱きしめたい この夏をぎゅっと
そばにいるからね 僕がずっと
陽だまりよりも眩しいんだ 横顔にキラめく滴
二人なら追い越せる
蜃気楼の向こうに見える tomorrow
聞こえてる?僕の鼓動
The sun peeks through the clouds that had stopped crying
At the squall of sunlight, the sunflowers hurriedly raise their heads
Splashing into the puddle, you turned around
Showing your smile while calling out my name

You finally grasped my right arm, and we ran up the slope
The tailwind is pushing my back

I want to embrace this summer tightly
Because I'll be by your side, always
The glittering drop on your cheek is even brighter than a sunny spot
If it's the two of us, we can catch up
Beyond the mirage, we can see tomorrow
Can you hear it? It's my heartbeat

抱きしめたい この夏をぎゅっと
そばにいるからね 僕がずっと
陽だまりよりも眩しいんだ 横顔にキラめく滴
二人なら追い越せる
蜃気楼の向こうに見える tomorrow
聞こえてる?僕の鼓動

午後の風 どこかで風鈴を鳴らして
君の耳元で 切ない音色を奏でて去(い)った
夕焼けに もしも寂しさが溢れたら
夜空のカーテンの下で 星を分け合おうよ

はにかんでみたり ときどき 泣いたり怒ったりして
会うたび 君が増えてゆくよ

焼き付けたい この夏をもっと
フィルムには残せない君を
1フレームだって無駄じゃないさ 素顔映して いつまでも
誰よりも大切な
君を守ると今 約束するよ
僕から目そらさないで 1mmも

最後の花火があがって 立ちこめる煙と歓声
僕らは言葉なくしたまま立ち尽くしてた
この季節が変わっても君とはぐれぬように

抱きしめたい この夏をぎゅっと
そばにいるからね 僕がずっと
陽だまりよりも眩しいんだ 横顔にキラめく滴
二人なら追い越せる
蜃気楼の向こうに見える tomorrow

The sun peeks through the clouds that had stopped crying
At the squall of sunlight, the sunflowers hurriedly raise their heads
Splashing into the puddle, you turned around
Showing your smile while calling out my name

You finally grasped my right arm, and we ran up the slope
The tailwind is pushing my back

I want to embrace this summer tightly
Because I'll be by your side, always
The glittering drop on your cheek is even brighter than a sunny spot
If it's the two of us, we can catch up
Beyond the mirage, we can see tomorrow
Can you hear it? It's my heartbeat

The afternoon wind rings the wind chimes anywhere
Then in your ears, a sorrowful tune stops playing
If at the sunset, you were bursting with loneliness
Under the curtain of the night sky, let's gaze at the starts

You may look coyly or sometimes with anger or sadness
But each time we met, I get excited

I want to engrave this summer even more
Without you leaving our film
Not even wasting 1 frame, projecting forever our real faces
You're more important than anyone
So now I promise to protect you
I won't look away even 1 millimeter

When the last firework raised up, smoke and shouts of joy rolled in
We're standing still while we were lost for words
When this season changes, we won't get separated anymore

I want to embrace this summer tightly
Because I'll be by your side, always
The glittering drop on your cheek is even brighter than a sunny spot
If it's the two of us, we can catch up
Beyond the mirage, we can see tomorrow
Can you hear it? It's my heartbeat
