Just finished watching Oneegai Sensei (Please, Teacher!) yesterday and am addicted to the Opening Song, Shooting Star. All lyrics taken from Gendou.
Shooting Star (Onegai Sensei OP)
tooku ni hikaru ano hoshi futari miagete
kimi ni deatta unmei o omou
nanigenai furide te no hira furete miru kedo
kimi ha yasashiku hohoemi dakede
kimochi ga tsuyoku naru to fuan no kazumo fuete yuku kara
ichido dakishimeta kokoro ha donna toki mo hanasanai de
hiroi uchyuu ni hitori dake no
kimi ga soba ni ite kureru nara
koware ta toki no hari mo yagate
yukkuri ugokidasu mirai he
kimi ha sono mamade ite
nagareru hoshi ni negai o sotto tsubuyaku
“Kimi to isshoni iraremasu youni…”
kono jikan dake o GARASU no hako ni tojikomete
zutto nagamete ire tara ii no ni
yasashii kimi no egao fuan de kumo rasetakunai kara
namidashita kunaru toki ni ha kono yozora o omoidasu yo
hiroi uchyuu ni taata futari no
shiawase no basho o mitsuketa ne
koko ni aru no ha tsuki to hoshi to
futari o tsutsumu yoru no kaze to
kimi he no omoi dake
tooi kuni kara tadoritsuita
kimi ha ano hikaru hoshi Shooting Star
taemanaku sou matataku youni
mirai mo kimi mo dakishimeru to
kono yozora ni chigau
Together, looking up at that distantly shining star
and thinking it was destined that we met,
pretending to be casual, I try to touch your palm,
but you only smile gently.
Since these feelings are getting stronger and the number of worries are increasing,
never let go of the heart you once embraced, no matter what happens.
In this vast universe,
if I can keep staying near just you alone,
even though the clock-hand of broken time
soon starts to move slowly toward the future,
stay just as you are, just like this.
I whisper this wish softly to the flowing stars:
“I pray that I can always be with you…”
Close up just this one part of time in a glass box,
even though it would be better if it could always be seen.
Since I don’t want to make your gentle smile be clouded by worries,
when I want to start crying, I think of this night sky.
In this vast universe, we found the place
where just the two of us can be happy, didn’t we?
Here there are moon and stars and
thr night wind that wraps the two of us up together and
my feelings about you alone.
You, who struggled here from that far country,
are that shining star. Shooting Star
Incessantly — yes, like twinkling.
I swear to this night sky
that I will embrace both you and the future.
