髪をかき上げ、深呼吸した
変わらず夜空を彩る英雄は
ボクを見守る眼差しのように
勇気をくれていた

今と過去を繋いでる
あのキャンパスには
悠久旅するキミが爪弾いた
幾重の光

願いを忘れることはないよ
幼い夢から覚めることなく
想いを乗せ続け駆けるペルセウス
ずっと夏の言葉を囁く煌めき

空を見上げて、両手広げた
神話の瞬き巡り逢う帳は
キミが微笑みかけているような
安らぎくれていた

今と未来を結んでる
このポートレート
二人の面影残した笑顔に
重ねた絆

誓いは指先が覚えてる
必ず再会すると信じて
あの夜、キミと見つめてたペルセウス
永久に夏の記憶を奏でる輝き

願い事叶うなら一つでいい
この星をキミと一緒に
また見たいよ

約束忘れることはないよ
必ず再会すると信じて
あの夜、二人で見つめたペルセウス
永久に夏の記憶を奏でるペルセウス

English:
I tied up my hair and took a deep breath.
The heroes which always decorate the night sky,
It was like they were watching over me.
They gave me courage.

In that campus which
connects present and past,
You strummed as you start your eternal journey,
As countless lights.

I will never forget my wish.
I will not wake from such a childish dream.
Keep holding on to those feelings, Perseus.
Always whisper the words of summer as you twinkle.

I looked up to the sky, and spread my arms.
The curtain of overlapping, flickering legends
Was like your smile upon me,
You granted me peace.

In this portrait which
ties present and future,
On our still smiling faces
was a bond we created.

My fingertips remember the oath we made.
I believe we will surely meet again.
That night, the Perseids I watched with you,
Play the memories of summer for eternity as they shine.

If I can have my wishes granted, just one is enough.
I want to see these stars again
Together with you

I will never forget the promise.
I believe we will surely meet again.
That night, the Perseids I watched with you.
Play the memories of summer for eternity, Perseus.
