English

Listen baby baby baby
How can it be found?
The corner where your dreams have fallen into a deep sleep
Like a shooting star lost in the bottomless sea
Having lost everything to rely on
I’m proud that you’re using up all your courage. I’ll always be behind you
The colours of the world are slowly fading; foolishly waiting for you in the unstopping rain.
But how can I find a dream that is so far into the future?
It looks like I can give it a little colour and protect it forever
Only because of these dreams can we be so free and wild

Baby one more try
Let’s start from the beginning
Your dreams are written on the blue skies that follow the winds oh yeah~
Staying strong in the midst of despair
There is pride in my tears
All the beautiful dreams follow you as they soar
Imagine for your life

Listen baby baby baby
How can it be seen?
Your dreams seem to show an eternal smile
Every day, every second
The deep blue skies and colourful dreams
Who is it that makes this so perfect and moving?
The colours of the world are slowly fading; foolishly waiting for you in the unstopping rain.
But how can I find a dream that is so far into the future?
It looks like I can give it a little colour and protect it forever
Only because of these dreams can we be so free and wild…yeah~

Baby one more try
Let’s start from the beginning
Your dreams are written on the blue skies that follow the winds oh yeah~
Staying strong in the midst of despair
There is pride in my tears
All the beautiful dreams follow you as they soar
Imagine for your life

I bravely ascend forward alone as the dark night falls
Just like the sun that burns as it races towards eternity
It was your strength that made me strong and gave me direction
With you we’ll chase our dreams till the skies grow old…yeah~

Won’t give up so easily anymore
Won’t be afraid of the invasion of dusk anymore
All the sweat and tears left behind will rise with our spirits
Believe in yourself and no one can stop you
Even if the path ahead is endless
Even if we lose ourselves in the hordes of others
Let that heartbeat we felt be unique

Baby one more try
Let’s start from the beginning
Your dreams are written on the blue skies that follow the winds oh yeah~
Staying strong in the midst of despair
There is pride in my tears
All the beautiful dreams follow you as they soar
Imagine for your life
