ゴキゲンな蝶になって きらめく風に乗って
今すぐ キミに会いに行こう
余計な事なんて 忘れた方がマシさ
これ以上 シャレてる時間はない
Gokigen na Chou ni natte Kirameku Kaze ni Notte
Ima sugu Kimi ni Ai ni Yukou
Yokei na koto nante Wasureta Hou ga Mashi sa
Kore Ijou Shareteru Jikan wa nai
何が WOW WOW~ この空に届くのだろう
だけど WOW WOW~ 明日の予定もわからない
Nani ga WOW WOW~ Kono Sora ni Todoku no darou
Dakedo WOW WOW~ Ashita no Yotei mo Wakaranai
無限大な夢のあとの 何もない世の中じゃ
そうさ愛しい 想いも負けそうになるけど
Stayしがちなイメージだらけの 頼りない翼でも
きっと飛べるさ On My Love
Mugentai na Yume no Ato no Nani mo nai Yo no Naka ja
Sousa itoshii Omoi mo Makesou ni naru kedo
Stay shigachi na Imeeji darake no Tayorinai Tsubasa demo
Kitto Toberu sa On My Love
