Will you ever speak to me again?
How should I approach you?
When we're already apart like this…
Shouldn't you ask me to come closer?
The night is too dark for us.
How can you hurt me like this?
It so painful, I cannot see the moon in the same way as before.
Once there was a gentle light, shining just for me.
And now it's gone.
Faded like a bittersweet dream.
Even if I see the moon,
It's no longer mine anymore.
Doesn't it hurt?
I'm still searching for you (please come back to me).
I found you once,
If you must leave I will search for you again (now I know who you are).
I'll find you again like I did before but will you ever call out to me?
Just like before but now won't you call for my name with your own voice?
I heard it once but now it hurts to hear nothing but silence.
Maybe I should call out to you this time.
But do you even remember my name?
Am I a ghost now?
My I died in your heart?
Can you still hear my voice?
How could you just fade away without leaving a trace of your existence behind?
How could you just slip right through my fingers when I held so you tightly?
How can you expect me to erase you?
Don't try to become nothingness to save me.
Even the moon phases change but in the end it will still glows brightly at night.
Til my moonlight come back for me,
What am I supposed to do?
You were mine all along.
Shining sweetly just for me.
Brighter than any star in the sky.
Gently you touched upon me with love.
Your warmth filled my heart with immense joy.
Chasing after the darkness as I do,
Am I always going to walk alone down this narrow path?
Now that you've been overtaken by the night.
The darkness feel so cold without your warmth.
Please shine your moonlight for me once again (I know you can).
Guide me back to the moon (I want to return to my home with you).
Let's meet again, this time holding hands and embracing tenderly.
Like we did before, but this time it will be forevermore.
