Tsuki no KAASU
Tsumetai yume no naka de.....

Kotoba no nai sekai de bokura wa ai wo kataru
Itsuka kimi ni todoku made
Kizu darake no kaina de dakiyoseta kuchibiru no
Haritsumeta negai tokashitakute

Nee aishiatta kako no utsukushisa sutesareba
Ashita motto kirei na yaoru e yukeru kara

Tsuki no KAASU
Tsumetai yume no naka kara
Kimi wo tooku tsuresaritakute
Dokomade yukeru
Ai wo shinjite ii basho made

Itami wo mada shiranai kodomo dake no yarikata de
Kimi wa kimi wo tozashiteru
Mimimoto de sasayaita hajimete no ai no
Kotoba massugu na hitomi madowasetai

Nee kimi wo dakishimete
Atatamerareru naraba
Donna batsu mo tsumi mo ima wa kowakunai

Tsuki no KAASU
Tsumetai yume kara samete
Kimi to tadayoi tsunagiatte
Dokomade yukou
Ai no shijima wo te ni suru made

Nee aishiatta kako no utsukushisa sutesareba
Ashita motto kirei na yoru e yukeru kara

Tsuki no KAASU
Tsumetai yume no naka kara
Kimi wo tooku tsuresaritakute
Dokomade yukeru
Ai wo shinjite ii basho made

Dokomade yukeru
Ai wo shinjite ii basho made
Yoru no mukou futari dake de
