出逢いのチカラ – AAA

作詞:Kenn Kato

編曲:Face 2 fAKE

はしゃいだ掃り道で ふたりは
みんなよりも 少し後を步く
いまたとえばここで このまま
なにもいわず 別れたなら たぶん
ぼくたちは 二度と会えないような

また会いたいな ただ素直な
Maybe I’m falling love

こんなぼくだけれど それでも…
それでも、なに? 話していい? 早く
誰にも 負けないユメがある

できるなら できるから
いや、そうじゃないんだ それまでずっと
Love makes dreams come true
Love makes dreams come true
Feel it
