もっと 素敵な明日に逢える?
舵を取って 胸にしまった

空を目指して 夢を探して
夢じゃなくて 君と出会って

小さな勇気から 大きな物手にした
「願い」を今こそ 「誓い」に変えて

Shining ray Find your brand new way.
新しい風にすべての思い乗せて 今…
Shining ray Find your brand new way.
a never ending journey to be together.
どこまでも追いかけて Shining ray


doko ni mukatte hashireba
motto sutekina ashita ni aeru?
kashi wo totte mune ni shimatta
kiseki no chizu wo hirogeta

sora wo mezashite yume wo sagashite
michi ni mayotta toki mo aru
yume janakute kimi to deatte
suteki na jibun wo mitsuketa

chiisana yuuki kara ookina mono te ni shita
"negai" wo imakoso "chikai" ni kaete

Shining ray Find your brand new way.
mirai no monogatari wo egakou
atarashii kaze ni subete no omoi nosete ima...
Shining ray Find your brand new way.
a never ending journey to be together.
dokomademo oikakete Shining ray


Taking the helm, I spread out the map of miracles I had shut in my heart
And thought, "What course can I set that will lead to a more amazing tomorrow?"

There were times I lost my way, aiming for the sky and searching for a dream
But it wasn't a dream: I found my amazing self when I met you

With a small bit of courage, we attained big things
Right now, change your "wish" into a "vow"

Shining ray! Find your brand new way
Let's paint a story of the future
By lifting up all our hopes for the new wind to carry, now

Shining ray! Find your brand new way
A never ending journey to be together
I'll chase it anywhere, Shining ray
