Lyrics

Futari no kyori ga sugoku
chijimatta kimochi ga shita
Shizen ni ude ga kumete
mieta sora miageta toki ni

KONBINI de ocha erande
atari mae ni wake atte
Kimi no mune ni kurumarete iru

Zutto zutto soba ni ite
Daisuki na kimi wo mitsumetetai
Snowflakes kimi no nukumori wa
Fuyu no okurimono hora yuki dayo

Doko ka de tsurai koto ya
sabishisa ni butsukatte mo
Kimi omou kono kimochi ni
shoujiki de iru to chikau yo

MEGEru to kore kike yotte
kashite kureta CD wa
Kimi ga kureta uta no LOVE LETTER

Zutto zutto iitekute
Tsuki atte kurete nee arigatou
Motto suki na HITO tsuyoku
Dakishime nasai to yuki wa furu no

Okuri mono wo sagashi nagara
musubu hazu no nai kimochi ga
Musubi aeta koto no fushigi kanjiteta

Zutto zutto soba ni ite
Onaji yume sagasu tabi wo shitai
Snowflakes sora ga machikado ni
Shiroi iki wo haku hora yuki dayo

The white white snow?s coming tonight
Make a wish upon your kiss...

English translation

I felt that the distance between us had been greatly shortened
Suddenly our arms linked together, when we looked up to the cold sky

Picking out tea at a convenience store, we usually share it
I'm enveloped in your heart

I always, always
Want to look upon you who I love, at my side
Snowflakes, your warmth
Winter's present, look, it's snow

Even if painful things and lonely things collide somewhere
I swear that I'll be honest about the feelings I feel for you

"When you get frustrated, listen to this", the CD you lent me
Is your love letter in song form, to me

I always, always want to say
Hey, thanks for being together with me
The falling snow says
"Please hold the person that you love more tightly"

While searching for a present, I felt
The wonder of our feelings that were linked together, when they shouldn't have been

I always, always
Want to go on journeys in search of the same dreams with you
Snowflakes, from the sky, on the corner
Our breath is white, look, it's snow

The white white snow's coming tonight,
Make a wish upon your kiss.
