Onaji furui ROGU no ue ni suwatte

Sitting on the same old log 
Gazing into the flickering light 
Lost in my thoughts 
I never realized 
when your head bobbed 
and came to rest on my shoulder

The stars were veiled 
Yet somehow, 
when I looked at my shoulder 
I could still see them

The sparks (they danced) 
the plants (they swayed) 
Sitting there in the silence 
That was my 
Bonfire Love Story 
The smoke rose to the skies 
and was blown apart by the wind 
I didn't seem to mind 
Because it was my 
very own love story

Picking up my stuff 
Stomping out the embers 
The following morning was equally quiet 
No one spoke
Still
I didn't understand the thrill in my chest

The sun shines bright 
Yet somehow, 
When I glanced at you 
Your radiance was brighter

Your smile (so bright) 
My smile (so nervous) 
I tried to ignore it 
but it was my 
Summer break Love Story 
I kept the feelings 
hidden deep down 
but they were still there 
Because it was my 
very own love story

I've been here before 
But not like this 
I've been here before 
I never will again 
I cannot deny this anymore 
I love you (I love you so) 
I love you (I love you so) 
I love you (I love you so) 
I love you so
Won't you love me to?

Your smile (so bright) 
My smile (so nervous) 
I tried to ignore it 
but it was my 
Summer break Love Story 
I kept the feelings 
hidden deep down 
but they were still there 
Because it was my 
very own love story

同じ古いログの上に座って
ちらつき光に見つめ
自分の考えで失わ
あなたの頭を切り
私の肩に休むようになったとき
実現しなかった

星たちが隠れていた
しかし何とか、
肩を見たとき
まだ星たちを見ることができた

火花たち(踊り)
植物たち(揺れ)
沈黙の中で座って
それがあった私の
Bonfire Love Story
煙が空に上昇し
風で吹き飛ばされた
気にないようであった
だってそれが私の
自身の Love Story

私のものを拾う
残り火を踏み
翌朝も同様に静かだった
誰も話せなかった
それでも
胸のスリルを理解しなかった

太陽が明るく
しかし何とか、
あなたをちらっと見たとき
あなたの輝きはより明るくなった

あなたの笑顔(とても明るく)
僕の笑顔(とても緊張)
それを無視しようとしたが、
それがされた私の
夏休み Love Story
隠された
感情を維持し
しかし、まだそこにあった
だってそれが私の
自身の Love Story

この前にここにきた
でもこのようにじゃなく
二度とでしょう
もうこれを否定できない
好きだ(大好きだ)
好きだ(大好きだ)
好きだ(大好きだ)
大好きだ
私にも愛するじゃないか?

あなたの笑顔(とても明るく)
僕の笑顔(とても緊張)
それを無視しようとしたが、
それがれた私の
夏休み Love Story
隠された
感情を維持し
しかし、まだそこにあった
だってそれが私の
自身の Love Story

MV SypnosisEdit

The MV starts out with a closeup of a bonfire. The moving image lasts for a few seconds, before the camera pans out, and the whole Senbatsu is seen sitting on four different logs that forms a square around the fire. Zoey is lightly playing an acoustic guitar. The girls are chatting with each other, and are seemingly having a good time. Zoey's tune alters slightly, and it can be recognized as an acoustic version of the intro to the song. After a moment, Ai starts to sing along, and the others quickly join in. They stop after a minute, and everyone bursts out laughing. A closeup is shown of Ai's laughing face, although without sound.

The screen cuts to a completely dark stage. Everyone's silouettes show that they are in starting positions. The music starts, and the stage lights up, and everyone move in tune with the music and lyrics.

The screen cuts to the girls in the campsite again right before "Hoshi ga tsutsuma reta" (The stars were veiled). They are making their way up a hill, seemingly talking and laughing. They settle down on the grass and looks up at the sky. They spot several shooting stars.

By the time it's time for the refrain, the screen cuts to close-ups of Ai, Akari, Aoi and Zoey separately the seconds they sing solo. Then the screen cuts to the stage, where the Senbatsu sings the rest of the refrain.

When the second verse starts, the girls are back by the campingfire. Some are grilling marshmallows, while others have fallen asleep on others' shoulders. Some wake up when the marshmallows are getting ready, probably by the scent. It ends with a candy-fight, where everyone throws sticky, sugary treats at each other - or are trying to avoid getting hit.

The second refrain starts, and the pattern used for the first refrain is repeated.

At "Watashi wa mae ni koko ni kimashita" (I've been here before), Ai and Akari are shown on screen, and they sing their lines. Then Miyagi and Ashley appear alone, and they sing their line. The same goes for Mariko and Miru, and Honoka also appear in their screen when she's supposed to join. 
After that, a pattern where the soloist sings their solo line before the screen cuts to the next pair/soloist happens (Honoka is shown, Mariko and Miru are shown, Zoey is shown, Miyagi and Ashley are shown, Akari is shown, Aoi is shown, and finally Ai is shown.) 
At "Anata wa watashi ni mo ai ga nai nodarou ka?" the screen cuts back to the stage, where Ai is standing in the center (per the routine for the song).

For the final refrain, closeups of everyone's faces are shown on a moving, panoramic image. They are all sleeping in their sleeping bags in a large tent. At the very final phrase, the screen cuts back to the stage, and the Senbatsu strike one last pose when the music ends.
