Asterisk Lyrics

Miageta yozora no hoshitachi no hikari
Miageta yozora no hoshitachi no hikari

Hitotsu futatsu kane no ne wa hibiku
Kokoro no naka e to hiroku fukaku
Monogatari no you na hoshi no shizuku
Sono naka ni hosoi senro wo kizuku
Jikan to tomo ni jidai wa ugoku
Nagareru hoshi wa shizuka ni ugoku
Me wo tojite mimi wo sumaseba
G-O-O-D Bye

Hanate hikari makezu ni shikkari
Ima toki hanate dareka ni todoku made
Eikou no hikari wa kono mukou ni
Kimitachi to tsukutteiku sutoorii

Miageta yozora no hoshitachi no hikari
Inishie no omoi negai ga jidai wo koe
Iro aseru koto naku todoku
Kirari hitomi ni utsuru dareka no sakebi
Kaze ni omoi wo tsuki ni negai wo
Chikara aru kagiri ikitekunda kyou mo
Miageta yozora no hoshitachi no hikari
Inishie no omoi negai ga jidai wo koe
Iro aseru koto naku todoku
Bokura no omoi mo itsuka dareka no mune ni
Hikari tsudzukeyou ano hoshi no you ni

Rays of light from the stars in the night sky above
Rays of light from the stars in the night sky above

1, 2, and so the bells echo,
Spreading far and wide in the depths of my heart
A legendary stardrop, inside it
There's so many narrow paths etched out
With time, the ages pass;
A shooting star passes without a sound
Close your eyes and listen hard, maybe you'll hear
Goodbye

Now that the light is released, surely it can't fail,
Across time it's got to reach someone
The light of glory is right across the way,
It's the story I'm about to weave with you all

Chorus: Rays of light from the stars in the night sky above
Send a plea from across the ages
With colours that haven't faded
It's somebody's cry, reflected in those sparkling eyes
A wish carried on the wind, a request from the moon
To live as fully as possible, day by day
Rays of light from the stars in the night sky above
Send a plea from across the ages
With colours that haven't faded
So that our wishes, too, will be in someone's heart someday,
Let's shine on like that star

Miageta yozora no hoshitachi no hikari
Miageta yozora no hoshitachi no hikari

Hitotsu futatsu kane no ne wa hibiku kokoro no naka e to hiroku fukaku
Monogatari no you na hoshi no shizuku sono naka ni hosoi senro wo kizuku
Jikan to tomo ni jidai wa ugoku nagareru hoshi wa shizuka ni ugoku
Me wo tojite mimi wo sumaseba G-O-O-D Bye

Oozora ippai no shirokuro shashin nabiku mafuraa shiroi iki
Sukoshi demo chikadzuki takute ano takadai made kakeashi de
Omoitai bouenkyou toridasu to renzu wa madashita sutaadasuto
Jikan wo ubawareta jikan jidai wo koetekuru roman

Hanate hikari makezu ni shikkari ima toki wo koe dareka ni todoku made
Eikou no hikari wa kono mukou ni kimitachi to tsukutteiku sutoorii

Chorus:
Miageta yozora no hoshitachi no hikari
Inishie no omoi negai ga jidai wo koe iro aseru koto naku todoku
Kirari hitomi ni utsuru dareka no sakebi
Kaze ni omoi wo tsuki ni negai wo chikara aru kagiri ikitekunda kyou mo
Bokura no omoi mo itsuka dareka no mune ni
Hikari tsudzukeyou ano hoshi no you ni

Ubugoe ageta chiisana hikari ookii na hikari jikuu wo koe deai
Subete no kagayaki ga hitotsu tonari tsukuridasu monogatari
Ten to ten wo musubu seiza no you ni dareka ni totte
Bokura mo kirei na e egaketetara ii ne
Miageta goran yo hora fuyu no daiamondo
Yuruyaka na ama no gawa sugu yuuki tori modoseru kara

Hanate hikari makezu ni shikkari ima toki wo koe dareka ni todoku made
Eikou no hikari wa kono mukou ni kimitachi to tsukutteiku sutoorii

(Chorus)

Kono sora wa hitotsu doko made mo hiroku
Umi no mukou ima umareru ibuki taetareru inochi
Hoshi wa terasu megami no gotoku
Nagaku tsudzuku kurikaesu shunkashuutou no
Isshun demo ii sukoshi de ii omoi wo kizamu
Tada hatenaku toki wo koe kagayaki dasu

Monogatari wa kokoro no naka de tsudzuiteiru ano hi no kimi wo itsuka yogisha ni notte

Miageta yozora no hoshitachi no hikari
Inishie no omoi negai ga jidai wo koe iro aseru koto naku todoku
Kirari hitomi ni utsuru dareka no sakebi
Kaze ni omoi wo tsuki ni negai wo chikara aru kagiri ikitekunda kyou mo
Miageta yozora no hoshitachi no hikari
Inishie no omoi negai ga jidai wo koe iro aseru koto naku todoku
Bokura no omoi mo itsuka dareka no mune ni
Hikari tsudzukeyou ano hoshi no you ni

Hikari tsudzukeyou ano hoshi no you ni

Rays of light from the stars in the night sky above
Rays of light from the stars in the night sky above

1, 2, and so the bells echo, spreading far and wide in the depths of my heart
A legendary stardrop, inside it there's so many narrow paths etched out
With time, the ages pass; a shooting star passes without a sound
Close your eyes and listen hard, maybe you'll hear a "Goodbye"

A black and white photo of the entire sky, a rumbling muffler - white breath
Just wanna get a little closer, I'll race to the high ground up there
Taking out my huge telescope, out of the lens came stardust
Time after time, an epic from across the ages

Now that the light is released, surely it can't fail, across time it's got to reach someone
The light of glory is right across the way,it's the story I'm about to weave with you all

Chorus: Rays of light from the stars in the night sky above
Send a plea from across the ages with colours that haven't faded
It's somebody's cry, reflected in those sparkling eyes
A wish carried on the wind, a request from the moon to live as fully as possible, day by day
So that our wishes, too, will be in someone's heart someday,
Let's shine on like that star

With my birth cry, a small light and a great light met across space and time
Their shine became one, to begin a new story
Like a constellation that connects the dots,
Why shouldn't we create a lovely painting for someone?
Take a look above you; see, it's a winter diamond
This slow-moving galaxy, soon enough, will give you your courage back

Now that the light is released, surely it can't fail, across time it's got to reach someone
The light of glory is right across the way,it's the story I'm about to weave with you all

(Chorus)

This sky is the only one there is; it spreads over all.
And beyond the sea,right now, new life takes breath, and life is cut off
While stars shine on, like goddesses
Continuing a long journey, or starting anew; in spring, summer, fall and winter
Even a second is enough, just a moment is enough,
To engrave my thoughts, to shine without end across the ages

The story goes on in the heart the "you" of that day takes a night train

Rays of light from the stars in the night sky above
Send a plea from across the ages
with colours that haven't faded
It's somebody's cry, reflected in those sparkling eyes
A wish carried on the wind, a request from the moon
To live as fully as possible, day by day
Rays of light from the stars in the night sky above
Send a plea from across the ages
With colours that haven't faded
So that our wishes, too, will be in someone's heart someday,
Let's shine on like that star

Let's shine on like that star
