Yokaze ga kigi yusuri
Nue ga nakihajimeteru
Tooi anata omoi
Tameiki tsuki yubi ni hari sasu

Fukitsu na yokan ga
Tsuki o kakusu

Mou ichido dakishimete yo
Yume de ii
Tsuyoku dakishimete yo
Kanawanai nara

Kokorozashi wa itsumo
Otoko dake no wagamama
Ashita wa tsuchi ni naru
Sonna hito da to wakatte ita

Fuan na yoru ni wa
Tsuki ni inoru

Namida ga afuredashita
Nue no koe
Nido to modorenai to
Kidzuiteta

Sono tamashii ga mayoi ko no you
Ikusen no mori o nuke samayou
Kaette oide yo
Kaette oide yo
Mou kowagara nakutemo ii yo

Mou ichido dakishimete yo
Yume de ii
Tsuyoku dakishimete yo
Nukumori o

Mou ichido dakishimetai
Yume no naka
Zutto dakishimetai
Mangetsu no yoru

The night wind shakes the trees,
And the nue begin to cry.
I think of you, far away...
I sigh and prick my finger with a needle.

An ominous premonition
Covers the moon...

Hold me again;
I don't care if it's a dream.
Hold me tight;
If it won't come true.

Aspirations are always
Selfishness that only men have.
Tomorrow you'll return to the earth...
I knew that was how you were.

On nights when I feel anxious,
I pray to the moon...

Tears spilled over
The voices of the nue...
I knew
I couldn't go back.

Your soul is like a lost child,
Wandering through thousands of forests.
Come back...
Come back...
There's no need to be afraid now.

Hold me again;
I don't care if it's a dream.
Hold me tight;
Your warmth...

I want to hold you again
In my dreams.
I want to keep holding you
On this moonlit night.
