Makenaide

Words by Sakai Izumi/Music by Oda Tetsurou/Arrangement by Hayama Takeshi

Futoshita shunkan ni Shisen ga butsukaru
(In an accidental moment [Our] eyes meet)
Shiawase no tokimeki Oboeteiru desho
(This palpitation of happiness You still remember, right?)*
Pasuteru karaa no kisetsu ni koishita
([I] fell in love in the pastel color season)
Ano hi no you ni Kagayaiteru Anata de ite ne
(Be you who sparkle like that day)

Makenaide Mou sukoshi
(Don't give up Just a little more)
Saigo made hashirinukete
(Run through to the end)
Donna ni Hanaretetemo
(No matter how far apart [we are])
Kokoro wa Soba ni iru wa
([My] heart is by [your] side)
Oikakete Harukana yume wo
(Run after the distant dream)

Nani ga okitatte Hetcharana kao shite
Dounika naru sa to Odokete miseru no
(What happened
[I'll] make a funny face showing [you] jokingly
that it'll become [all right] one way or another)**
"Koyoi wa watakushi to isshoni odorimasho"
("Let's dance together with me tonight")
Ima mo Sonna anata ga suki yo Wasurenaide
(Even now I like that you Don't forget)

Makenaide Hora soko ni
(Don't give up Look, over there)
Gooru wa chikadzuiteru
(The goal is getting closer)
Donna ni Hanaretetemo
(No matter how far apart [we are])
Kokoro wa Soba ni iru wa
([My] heart is by [your] side)
Kanjite ne Mitsumeru hitomi
(Feel [my] eyes that are fixed [on you])

* TOKIMEKI is the feeling ("beating of one's heart") when a person falls in love.

** Thanks to Arnold Fang for clarifying the term HETCHARA:

Hecchara means humorous/smiley. I think you slightly mistook the spirit of the song though. I read from Oricon that the song's not being sung to the person whom she loved, but to a person who's her friend and pursuing a relationship.
