When the Moon Reaches for the Stars, also known as When The Moon's Reaching Out Stars, is a song from Persona 3. It is the background music for when the protagonist travels around Tatsumi Port Island. As a song, it appears on Persona 3 Original Soundtrack as well as Burn My Dread -Reincarnation: Persona 3- . It is played on the start screen of Persona 4 Arena when it is night time with Mitsuru and Akihiko. Paulownia Mall's BGM Paulownia Mall shares some similarities with this song.

The song is remixed in Persona 3 Reload, where its lyrics are slightly modified compared to the Reincarnation version, and it plays only in the day, with Color Your Night taking its place at night.

When the Moons Reaching Out Stars - Persona 3

I've never felt like; so miserable
I've never felt like thinking this will last forever
Baby stay with me
You gotta tell now, your love came all over me

When stars're smiling moon
Wonder how look in your eyes
Just dialing your number
Failing to press the last two

Praying the heart

When the moon's reaching stars
If you hold me tight
Feeling heart beat so close
Will this last long?

I've never felt like; so miserable.
I've never felt like thinking this will last forever.
Baby stay with me (baby stay with me)
You gotta tell me, your love came all over me

I never felt like so different now.
It doesn't seem like we've been far apart turn me so jealous.
My life'll turn out (my life'll turn out)
It doesn't seem like it could be last for my life.

When stars're smiling at moon wonder how look in your eyes.
Just dialing your number failing to press the last two.
Pray in the heart!
When moon's reaching starts if you hold me tight
Feeling hearts beat so close will this last long?

My life'll turn out to move on like that.
Just give me something that proves you're not fooling
Just give me (just give me)
You gotta tell me, your love came all over me

My life'll turn out to be so cruel.
Just give me something that proves you're not fooling.
If this is so real (if this is so real)
So just tell me your love came all over me.

When stars're smiling at moon, wonder how look in your eyes.
If I could ever tell you that; wouldn't I feel so weak?
pray in the heart!
When moon's reaching starts; you won't leave me again!
If I could ever tell you that, you wouldn't leave me.

When stars're smiling at moon wonder how look in your eyes
Now I need that smile so close!
Can't help thinking of you!
Up in the sky seeing the moon's reaching starts if you hold me tight.
Feeling hearts beat so close
Will this last long?

Persona 3 Reincarnation - When the Moon's Reaching out the stars

I've never felt like; so miserable.
I've never felt like thinking this will last forever.
Baby stay with me (baby stay with me)
You gotta tell now, your love came all over me

I never felt like so different right now.
It doesn't seem like we've been far apart turn me so jealous.
My life'll turn out (my life'll turn out)
It doesn't seem like it could be last for my life.

When stars're smiling at moon wonder how they look in your eyes.
Just dialing your number failing to press the last two.
Blame the heart!
When moon's reaching starts if you hold me tight
Feeling hearts beat so close will this last long?

My life'll turn out to move on like that.
Just give me something that proves you're not fooling
Just give me (just give me)
You gotta tell now, your love came all over me

My life'll turn out to be so cruel.
Just give me something that proves you're not fooling.
If this is so real (if this is so real)
So just tell me your love came all over me.

If I could ever tell you that; wouldn't I feel so weak?
pray in the heart!
When the moon's reaching starts; you won't leave me again!
If I could ever tell you that, you wouldn't turn away from me.

When stars're smiling at moon wonder how look in your eyes
Now I need that smile so close!
Can't help thinking of you!
Up in the sky seeing the moon's reaching starts if you hold me tight.
Feeling hearts beat so close
Will this last long?

Official lyrics

I never felt like so miserable
I never knew I'd think that this would last forever
Baby stay with me
You gotta say now your love flows all over me

I never felt like so different now
It doesn't seem like we've been far apart, so jealous
My life'll turn out
It doesn't seem like it could last for all my life

When stars smile at the moon
Wonder how it looks in your eyes
Just dialing your number
Failed to press the last two

Pray in my heart

When the moon reaches stars
If you hold me tight
Feel your heartbeat so close
Would this last long?

My life'll turn out to move on like that
Just give me something that proves you're not fooling
Just give me
You gotta tell me your love flows all over me

My life'll turn out to be so cruel
Just give me something that proves you're not fooling
If this is so real
Now just tell me your love flows all over me

When stars smile at the moon
Wonder how it looks in your eyes
If I could ever tell you that
Wouldn't I feel so weak

Pray in my heart

When moon reaches stars
You won't leave me again
If I could ever tell you that
You would not leave me

When stars smile at the moon
Wonder how it looks in your eyes
I need that smile so close
Always thinking of you

Up in the sky high

The moon reaches stars
If you hold me tight
Feel your heartbeat so close
Would this last long?
