空を飛んで 海を渡りで
時を越えて あなたは来るかってくる
唯のような 宝のような
水のように 風のように
光のように あなたはいる 
水のような 風のような
光のような 生きてるような

sora o tonde umi wo watari de
toki o koete anata wa kuru kattekuru
tada no youna takara no youna
fururikotomade anata wa iu
boku ni iu
aa, omae no tame ni sou watashi wa kaita
hoshiinonara itsudemo sukinadake tore
mizu no youni kaze no youni
hikari no youni anata wa iru
soko ni iru
aa, omae no tame ni sou watashi wa kaita
iranunonara ima-sugu moyashiteshimaeyo
aa, omae no tame ni sou watashi wa ikita
shiritainara itsudemo tazuneyou
mizu no youna kaze no youna
hikari no youna ikiteruyouna

After flying through the sky, crossing the oceans,
and transcending through time, you came at last to me
Like I was the sole treasure of your eye,
you looked straight at me and told me
and only to me
Ah, I wrote this just for you
Take any part you like if you want
Because like the water, like the wind,
like the light, you will be there
right here with me
Ah, I wrote this just for you
Burn it right away if you don't want it
Ah, I lived only for you
Ask me any time if you want to know more
As though you were the water, as though you were the wind,
as though you were the light, as though you were alive
