525,600 from above

Miko is probably one of my favourite vocalists, and I can’t exactly pinpoint why.
This song deals with separation, where one person is in space, which also explains why time doesn’t move the same for the two (general relativity).
Important to note that the lyrics in brackets aren’t included in the booklet and are transcribed by ear. Correct me if I might be wrong (especially that English portion).

時計の針が刻み続けてる お互いの距離を確かめているように
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
夜空を見上げて 聴く声は そう
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
月面から始まる おとぎ話

tokei no hari ga kizami tsudzuketeru otagai no kyori o tashikameteiru you ni
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
yozora o mi agete kiku koe ha sou
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
getsumen kara hajimaru otogibanashi

The clock’s needle will be continuing to tick, as if confirming each other’s distance
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
Looking at the night sky, the voice I hear, yes
originates from the moon’s surface, a fairy tale

銀色を散りばめて
(僕ら分かっている これで終わりわ)
夜空に描く想い
(僕らここの中じゃ分かり合えずに)
見上げればそばにいるというけれど
それでは心はチクチク痛むばかり
見上げればそばにいるというけれど
眩しくて見えなくなる

gin iro o chiribamete
(bokura wakatteiru kore de owari wa)
yozora ni egaku omoi
(bokura koko no naka ja wakari aezu ni)
mi agereba soba ni iru to iu keredo
sore de wa kokoro wa chikuchiku itamu bakari
mi agereba soba ni iru to iu keredo
mabushikute mienaku naru

Inlaying the colour silver
(We understand, this is the end)
I draw my feelings in the night sky
(Inside here, we won’t understand each other)
As long as I look up, you could say that you’re there with me,
however, with that my heart just feels a stinging pain
As long as I look up, you could say that you’re there with me,
however it’s too bright, such that I lose sight

ただ泣きたい こんな夜は 何もかもが モノクローム
悲しみとか 喜びとか 短い時を 積み上げて
君はどこへ 僕はどこへ たどり着けるというのかな
輝く月 照らす陽光 すれ違う 二人の時間 巻き戻して

tada nakitai konna yoru wa nani mo kamo ga monokuroomu
kanashimi toka yorokobi toka mijikai toki o tsumi agete
kimi wa doko e boku wa doko e tadori tsukeru to iu no kana
kagayaku tsuki terasu hikari sure chigau futari no jikan maki modoshite

On nights like these, when I just want to cry, everything is monochrome
Sorrow and happiness, such feelings build up our short time
I wonder where you would say we’d both be able to reach
The sparkling moon and the shining sun pass by each other, turning back our time

(一人檻の中で君を照らすよ
遠く離れてても君を守るよ
二人刻む時は同じじゃないと
知っていても 知っても 君といたいよ)

(hitori ori no naka de kimi o terasu yo
tooku hanaretetemo kimi o mamoru yo
futari kizamu toki wa onaji janai to
shitteitemo shittemo kimi to itai yo )

(All alone in a cage, I’ll shine on you
No matter how far apart we are, I’ll protect you
Time doesn’t tick the same for us
I know that, I know, but I want to be with you)

時計の針を折り曲げてみては お互いの距離を取り戻せる気がして
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
宇宙から見下ろす景色は そう
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
新しい何かが始まるサイン

tokei no hari o ori magete mite wa otagai no kyori o tori modoseru ki ga shite
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
uchuu kara mi orosu keshiki keshiki wa sou
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
atarashii nani ka ga hajimaru sain

I have a feeling that after trying to bend back the clock’s needle, each other’s distance can be taken back
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
The scenery seen looking down from space is, yes
(What the time it is, so can you hear me?)
a sign that something new will begin

銀色に輝いて
(僕ら分かっている これで終わりわ)
涙を焦がす光
(僕らここの中じゃ分かり合えずに)
見上げればそばにいるというけれど
それでも時間はチクチク進むばかり
見上げればそばにいるというけれど
置き去りの心 揺れて

gin iro ni kagayaite
(bokura wakatteiru kore de owari wa)
namida o kogasu hikari
(bokura koko no naka ja wakari aezu ni)
mi agereba soba ni iru to iu keredo
sore demo jikan wa chikuchiku susumu bakari
mi agereba soba ni iru to iu keredo
okizari no kokoro yurete

Shining silver in colour
(We understand, this is the end)
Tear singing light
(Inside here, we won’t understand each other)
As long as I look up, you could say that you’re there with me,
however, even so, time just stingingly advances
As long as I look up, you could say that you’re there with me,
however my abandoned heart sways

ただ叫びたい こんな夜は 浮かぶ言葉 モノクローム
寂しさとか 愛しさとか 儚い時を 積み上げて
君はどこへ 僕はどこへ 行けば幸せになれた?
隠れた月 落とす涙 不器用な 二人の時間 巻き戻して

tada sakebitai konna yoru wa ukabu kotoba monokuroomu
samishisa toka itoshisa toka hakanai toki o tsumi agete
kimi wa doko e boku wa doko e ikeba shiawase ni nareta?
kakureta tsuki otosu hikari bukiyou na futari no jikan maki modoshite

On nights like these, when I just want to shout, all the words that come to me are monochrome
Loneliness and loveliness, such feelings build up our fleeting time
Where should you, where should I, have gone to attain happiness?
The moon is hidden and tears drop, turning back our tactless time

(一人檻の中で君を照らすよ
遠く離れてても君を守るよ
二人刻む時は同じじゃないと
知っていても 知っても 君といたいよ)

(hitori ori no naka de kimi o terasu yo
tooku hanaretetemo kimi o mamoru yo
futari kizamu toki wa onaji janai to
shitteitemo shittemo kimi to itai yo )

(All alone in a cage, I’ll shine on you
No matter how far apart we are, I’ll protect you
Time doesn’t tick the same for us
I know that, I know, but I want to be with you)

見上げればそばにいるというけれど
それさえも今はチクチク痛むばかり
見上げればそばにいるというけれど
寂しくて 消えたくなる

mi agereba soba ni iru to iu keredo
sore sae mo ima wa chikuchiku itamu bakari
mi agereba soba ni iru to iu keredo
samishikute kietaku naru

As long as I look up, you could say that you’re there with me,
however, even that now just hurts, stinging
As long as I look up, you could say that you’re there with me,
however, feeling lonely, I grow to want to disappear

ただ泣きたい こんな夜は 何もかもが モノクローム
悲しみとか 喜びとか 短い時を 積み上げて
君はどこへ 僕はどこへ たどり着けるというのかな
輝く月 照らす陽光 すれ違う 二人の時間 巻き戻して

tada nakitai konna yoru wa nani mo kamo ga monokuroomu
kanashimi toka yorokobi toka mijikai toki o tsumi agete

On nights like these, when I just want to cry, everything is monochrome
Sorrow and happiness, such feelings build up our short time
I wonder where you would say we’d both be able to reach
The sparkling moon and the shining sun pass by each other, turning back our time

(一人檻の中で君を照らすよ

(hitori ori no naka de kimi o terasu yo

(All alone in a cage, I’ll shine on you
No matter how far apart we are, I’ll protect you
Time doesn’t tick the same for us
I know that, I know, but I want to be with you)

A.Q.U.A

Now these are the kinds of Mei Ayakura vocals I like.
Two small stanzas simply aren’t enough to capture her lovely voice. To be fair, I have to give Linjin credit for the cool repetition thing going on too.

一面に広がる青い海の景色の風
(色とりどりの世界に踊る 水しぶきのハレーション)
君の旅路に 寄り添う光のパレットの上
(色とりどりの世界に踊る 心は止められないよ)

ichimen ni hirogaru aoi umi no keshiki no kaze
(irotoridori no sekai ni odoru mizushibuki no hareeshon)
kimi no tabiji ni yori sou hikari no paretto no ue
(irotoridori no sekai ni odoru kokoro wa tomerarenai yo)

The wind of the blue sea’s scenery streching across the surface
(Dancing in a multicoloured world, halation from spray)
On top of a pallet of light there for your journey
(Dancing in a multicoloured world, my heart can’t be stopped)

君の歌に 心はずむ
想い出には まだしたくないから
青い海に 沈む夕日
僕らの旅 始まったばかり?

kimi no uta ni kokoro hazumu
omoide ni wa mada shitakunai kara
aoi umi ni shizumu yuuhi
bokura no tabi hajimatta bakari?

My heart bounces along to your song
I don’t want to make this into a memory yet after all
The evening sun setting into the blue sea
Has our journey only just begun?

白い砂浜 駆け抜ける 君の影 蜃気楼
跳ねる海に 踊る 波の色 焼き付けて
何もかも幻だと 笑うけれど
構わない 短い時間と 知っていても

shiroi sunahama kake nukeru kimi no kage shinkirou
haneru umi ni odoru nami no iro yaki tsukete
nani mo kamo maboroshi da to warau keredo
kamawanai mijikai jikan to shitteitemo

Your shadow runs through the white sandy beach, a mirage
Dancing to the bouncing sea, the colour of the waves makes an impression
I laugh at the fact that it’s all an illusion
but I don’t care, even though I know we don’t have long

一面に広がる青い空に光る太陽
(色とりどりの世界に踊る 水しぶきのハレーション)
僕の旅路は 寄り道だらけの長い旅路
(色とりどりの世界に踊る 心は止められないよ)

ichimen ni hirogaru aoi sora ni hikaru taiyou
(irotoridori no sekai ni odoru mizushibuki no hareeshon)
boku no tabiji wa yorimichi darake no nagai tabiji
(irotoridori no sekai ni odoru kokoro wa tomerarenai yo)

The sun sparkling in the blue sky stretching across the surface
(Dancing in a multicoloured world, halation from spray)
My trip is a long trip filled with stops on the way
(Dancing in a multicoloured world, my heart can’t be stopped)

聴こえていた 現実の声
思い出して どこへ行けるのだろう
青い海に 昇る朝日
僕らの旅 傷ついてばかり?

kikoeteita genjitsu no koe
omoi dashite doko e yukeru no darou
aoi umi ni noboru asahi
bokura no tabi kizutuite bakari?

I was able to hear a real voice
Recalling it, I wonder where we can go
The morning sun rising on the blue sea
Will our journey only result in pain?

焼ける太陽 追いかけた あの日見た 蜃気楼
揺れる海に 光る 波の音に寄り添って
君さえも幻だと 知っていたけれど
構わない 儚い時間と 知っていても

yakeru taiyou oi kaketa ano hi mita shinkirou
yureru umi ni hikaru nami no oto ni yori sotte
kimi sae mo maboroshi da to shitteita keredo
kamawanai hakanai jikan to shitteitemo

The mirage I saw that day chased the burning sun
growing close to the sound of waves shining in the swaying sea
I had known that even you were an illusion
but I don’t care, even though I know time is fleeting

僕の旅路を 現実へと引き戻して行く
(色とりどりの世界は語る 心は止められないよ)

boku no tabiji o genjitsu e to hiki modoshite yuku
(irotoridori no sekai wa kataru kokoro wa tomerarenai yo)

I’m going to pull my trip back towards reality
(The multicoloured world speaks, my heart can’t be stopped)

白い砂浜 駆け抜ける 君の影 蜃気楼
跳ねる海に 踊る 波の色 焼き付けて
何もかも幻だと 笑うけれど
構わない 短い時間と 知っていても

I just wanna change myself and be ok-yeah
I was not just feeling myself in those days
everyday we’re losing voice and color of the sky
we are living in “the 21st century” world

life is a funny thing, life is but a span
All life is a game of luck? is it true?
every morning we can see the brand-new sunshine
we are singing in “the 21st century” world

we are living in the same world of feeling
it’s like a 21st century’s new love
so you don’t have to wait for the sky to clear up
boys & girls, it’s alright don’t give up and try!

we are singing that same song of the day
it’s like a 21st century’s daydream
if we want, we could be the one forever and ever
boys & girls, we can change so let’s stand up now!

I just wanna break myself and be ok-yeah
I was not just finding myself in that night
everyday we’re looking for the color of the lie
we are praying in “the 21st century” world

life is a funny thing, life is but a span
All life is a game of luck? is it true?
every night we can see the shooting star
we are dancing in “the 21st century” world

we are loving in the same word of healing
it’s like a 21st century’s true love
so you don’t have to find a piece of yourself
boys & girls, forever we can see the same stars!

we are dancing to the same song in the moonlight
it’s like a 21st century’s miracle
if we want, we could dance, dance forever and ever
boys & girls, raise your hands until we die clap! clap!

we are living in the same world of feeling
it’s like a 21st century’s new love
so you don’t have to wait for the sky to clear up
boys & girls, it’s alright don’t give up and try!

we are singing that same song of the day
it’s like a 21st century’s daydream
if we want, we could be the one forever and ever
boys & girls, we can change so let’s stand up now!

小さく枯れた 砂上の花のように
小さく笑って 消えてしまえたら
寂しさ 隠して 数えた 星の数
伸ばした指先 ただ 震えている

chiisaku kareta sajou no hana no you ni
chiisaku waratte kiete shimaetara
samishisa kakushite kazoeta hoshi no kazu
nobashita yubisaki tada furueteiru

Like a small withered flower atop sand
if I could just give a small smile and completely disappear
I would have hid my loneliness and counted the stars
but my extended fingers are merely trembling

輝く数多の星 僕を照らすけど
僕の瞳に 映る星はひとつだけ

kagayaku amata no hoshi boku o terasu kedo
boku no hitomi ni utsuru hoshi wa hitotsu dake

Though tons of sparkling stars shine upon me
in my eyes, there’s only one star I see

笑いあって 信じあって 時に泣いたりした
想い出は 粉々に 砕け散ってゆくのに
触れたら もう崩れてしまうこと わかっていた
それでも たった一人 君に 君に触れてほしい

warai atte shinji atte toki ni naitari shita
omoide wa konagona ni kudake chitte yuku noni
furetara mou kuzurete shimau koto wakatteita
sore demo tatta hitori kimi ni kimi ni furete hoshii

We laughed together, had faith in each other, sometimes cried together and more
though our memories will be crushed into little bits
I understood that it’d all come crumbling down with just a touch
but even so, all alone, I want, I want to feel your touch

小さく揺れた 沈黙の夢のように
儚い歌だと 笑ってくれたなら
哀しさ 許して 見上げた 星の数
視えない旅路に ただ 震えている

chiisaku yureta shijima no yume no you ni
hakanai uta da to waratte kureta nara
kanashisa yurushite mi ageta hoshi no kazu
mienai tabiji ni tada furueteiru

If you gave me a smile because it’s a brief song
like a silent dream that had a small shake
I would have allowed the grief and looked up at the number of stars
but I’m merely trembling on a journey I can not see

小さな星で 遠く 君を照らすけど
君の瞳に 映る星はひとつだけ

chiisa na hoshi de tooku kimi o terasu kedo
kimi no hitomi ni utsuru hoshi wa hitotsu dake

Although I shine on you from afar on a small planet,
in your eyes, there’s only one star you see

寂しくて 哀しくて どこにも行けなかった
思い出は 灰になって 色あせてしまうのに
触れたら もう壊れてしまうこと わかっていた
それなら たった一人 君に 君に触れてほしい

samishikute kanashikute doko ni mo ikenakatta
omoide wa hai ni natte iro asete shimau noni
furetara mou jkowarete shimau koto wakatteita
sore nara tatta hitori kimi ni kimi ni furete hoshii

Being lonely and feeling sad, I couldn’t go anywhere
despite my memories turning to ash and losing their colour
I understood that it’d all fall apart with just a touch
If that’s the case, all alone, I want, I want to feel your touch

奪いあって 傷つけあって どこへ行けるのだろう
月も星も見えない静かなこんな夜は
笑いあった 信じあった 時に泣いたりした
優しい思い出が たった一つの星になる

ubai atte kizutsuke atte doko e yukeru no darou
tsuki mo hoshi mo mienai shizuka na konna yoru wa
warai atta shinji atta toki ni naitari shita
yasashii omoide ga tatta hitotsu ni naru

Stealing from each other, hurting each other, just where can we go?
On quiet nights like these when the moon and stars are hidden
We laughed together, had faith in each other, sometimes cried together and more
These tender memories will become just a single star

笑いあって 信じあって 時に泣いたりした
想い出は 粉々に 砕け散ってゆくのに
触れたら もう崩れてしまうこと わかっていた
それでも たった一人 君に 君に触れてほしい

warai atte shinji atte toki ni naitari shita
omoide wa konagona ni kudake chitte yuku noni
furetara mou kuzurete shimau koto wakatteita
