Profile

Not actually Komachi’s theme. Definitely the best song from this album. Many thanks to Eiki Shiki for giving me the  long awaited lyrics, though I am somewhat sad they weren’t written by Tsukiyama Sae, who writes some of my favourite lyrics second to Haruka from Alst. These still aren’t too bad though. If you like this song, check out Fire from Alstroemeria Record’s album “Of Memories”.

Notes: I wasn’t sure how to take the line 「信じ続けてる想いが揺らいでしまう前に」. Translated literally it’s “Before the feelings you continue to believe in end up swaying” but I don’t think that really fits in with either the previous or following lines.

昨日も明日も此処には無いから
皆と笑って過ごした あの日へ

kinou mo ashita mo koko ni wa nai kara
minna to waratte sugoshita ano hi e

There’s no such thing as yesterday or tomorrow here,
so towards that day I spent laughing with everyone

残された想い 誰よりも優しく抱き締めて
喧騒の中で前に踏み出す勇気になるの
繋がる世界を求めて 高く飛び立てるなら
まだまだ終わらないよ

nokosareta omoi dare yori mo yasashiku daki shimete
kensou no naka de mae ni fumi dasu yuuki ni naru no
tsunagaru sekai o motomete takaku tobi dateru nara
mada mada owaranai yo

By embracing abandoned feelings more tenderly than anyone else,
they turn into the courage needed to step forward amid all the noise
If you can fly off high in search of connected worlds,
there’s no way it’ll end anytime soon

辛い悲しみ 私に聞かせて
儚き理想を夜明けに掲げて

tsurai kanashimi watashi ni kikasete
hakanaki risou o yoake ni kakagete

Let me hear what causes you pain and grief
Uphold your fleeting ideals in the dawn

駆け抜けて逝く閃光を 忘れない想いを
見つめ続け何時の間にか追いかけ 空へと
伸ばした手が触れ合えたら 逢えるかな 何時かは
皆が側にいたことを繰り返し思い出す

kake nukete yuku senkou o wasurenai omoi o
mitsume tsudzuke itsu no ma ni ka oi kake sora e to
nobashita te ga fure aetara aeru kana itsu ka wa
minna ga soba ni ita koto o kuri kaeshi omoi dasu

Continuing to stare at the racing flashes and feelings I won’t forget,
before I knew it I was chasing them into the sky
I wonder if I’ll be able to see you when our outstretched hands can touch each other someday
Repeatedly I remember that everyone was by our side

ぞんざいな日々は心の影を色濃くするの
信じ続けてる想いが揺らいでしまう前に
ルールは誰かと解り合う合言葉になって
夢を見続けてるの

zonzai na hibi wa kokoro no kage o irokoku suru no
shinji tsudzuketeru omoi ga yuraide shimau mae ni
ruuru wa dare ka to wakari au aikotoba ni natte
yume o mi tsudzuketeru no

Rough days make the shadows of your heart stand out
Continue to have faith before your feelings end up swaying
Rules become passwords that let people understand each other
and we continue to dream

面と向かって 向き合う強さを
出逢えた喜び 伝えたかったよ

men to mukatte muki au tsuyosa o
de aeta yorokobi tsutaetakatta yo

I wanted to convey you the joy of having been able to met
the strength to meet each other face to face

イチかバチかの閃光を焼き付けて その目に
一番星を指差して 面影探して
ノイズ混じりの思い出が解けてく気がして
似ている誰かを重ねて もう一度描いてく

ichi ka bachi ka no senkou o yaki tsukete sono me ni
ichiban boshi o yubi sashite omokage sagashite
noizu majiri no omoide ga hodokete ku ki ga shite
niteiru dare ka o kasanete mou ichido egaite ku

Burning the hit-or-miss flash into your eyes
Pointing out the first star to appear and searching for your whereabouts
Getting the feeling that my noise-mixed memories are coming undone
I will draw somebody similar again once more

Tragedy

Right behind Haruka, Tsukiyama Sae is one of my favourite emo lyricists, though she has really been rising in my favour with each set of her lyrics I read. So good. Not to mention, I love her as a vocalist. I never thought I would ever get lyrics to this to be honest, but I’m really glad I did.

永い夢を見ていた気がする
果てしない夢
でもいつか終わりは来るものって
気づいていたから

nagai yume o miteita ki ga suru
hate shinai yume
demo itsu ka owari wa kuru mono tte
kidzuiteita kara

I get the feeling that I had been dreaming a long dream
An endless dream
But I had realized that these things eventually
come to an end

鳴りやまない残響の中で
立ち尽くす孤独な私
誰一人助けてはくれないとわかってたの
咲き誇る桜の花の美しさ
それは私の今までの幸せを思い出させてくれるけど
もう散ってしまった過去の話で
今の私にはなんにも残ってはいない
この世界のことなんてもう知らない
諦めた 全部捨てた いらないの

nari yamanai zankyou no naka de
tachi tsukusu kodoku na watashi
dare hitori tasukete wa kurenai to wakatteta no
saki hokoru sakura no hana no utsukushisa
sore wa watashi no ima made no shiawase o omoi dasasete kureru kedo
mou chitte shimatta kako no hanashi de
ima no watashi ni wa nan ni mo nokotte wa inai
kono sekai no koto nante mou shiranai
akirameta zenbu suteta iranai no

Among the echoes that won’t stop sounding
I stand still, alone by myself
I understood that nobody would save me
The beauty of the sakura in full bloom
That lets me remember my happiness up until now
but that’s a story of the past already ruined
As I am now, I have not a thing left
I don’t care about this world anymore
I’ve given up, thrown everything away, I don’t need it

甘い幻想は私が描いていた理想で
でもこんなものいつでも壊れると
知っていたから

amai gensou wa watashi ga egaiteita risou de
demo konna mono itsu demo kowareru to
shitteita kara

The ideal that I had pictured was a sweet fantasy
but I knew that these kinds of things always
fall apart

人々が行き交う中で
立ち尽くす孤独な私
見て見ぬふりをされることには慣れてしまった
見上げれば桜の花の美しさ
それは私の今までの幸せを思い出させてくれるけど
足元には踏み荒らされた花
今の私にはこっちがお似合いなのかも
この世界のことなんてもう知らない
諦めた 全部捨てた いらないの

hitobito ga yuki kau naka de
tachi tsukusu kodoku na watashi
mite minu furi o sareru koto ni wa narete shimatta
mi agereba sakura no hana no utsukushisa
sore wa watashi no ima made no shiawase o omoi dasasete kureru kedo
ashimoto ni wa fumi arasareta hana
ima no watashi ni wa kocchi ga oniai nano kamo
kono sekai no koto nante mou shiranai
akirameta zenbu suteta iranai no

Among the crossing crowds of people
I stand still, alone by myself
I’ve become used to people pretending I don’t exist
The beauty of the sakura I see when I look up
That lets me remember my happiness up until now
but the flowers at my feet have been trampled on
Maybe that suits me more as I am now
I don’t care about this world anymore
I’ve given up, thrown everything away, I don’t need it

昔読んでもらったおとぎ話は
どれもこれも幸せな結末迎えていた
私はヒロインになんてなれないよ
諦めた 全部捨てた もういいの

mukashi yonde moratta otogibanashi wa
dore mo kore mo shiawase na ketsumatsu mukaeteita
watashi wa hiroin ni nante narenai yo
akirameta zenbu suteta mou ii no

Each and every one of the fairy tales read to me
ended with the characters living happily ever after
I could never come close to being a heroine
I’ve given up, thrown everything away, it doesn’t matter anymore…

MGMG

This seems like something you’d find in an IOSYS song. The arrangement is completely different though. I imagine the “you” here is food.

駆け巡る 嘘も本当も全て狂おしく愛おしい幻想に
知りたいの 噛めば噛む程深く 奥深く求めずにいられない

kake meguru uso mo hontou mo subete kuruoshiku itooshii gensou ni
shiritai no kameba kamu hodo fukaku okufukaku motomezu ni irarenai

I race around the fantasy where lies, truth, everything is maddeningly precious
I want to know – the more I bite, the deeper I can’t resist seeking

Love it! 触れてはイケないものでも Love it! 手を伸ばしそうで
Love it! 少しだけならいいのかな Love it! 我慢出来なくて

Love it! furete wa ikenai mono demo Love it! te o nobashisou de
Love it! sukoshi dake nara ii no kana Love it! gaman dekinakute

Love it! It’s something I shouldn’t touch. Love it! But I’m about to reach
Love it! I wonder if just a bit’s alright. Love it! I can’t help myself

MGMG NIGHT!MGMG LOVE! 癖になりそうなの

Ra,Ra,Rabbit! LOVE ME DO! Ra,Ra,Rabbit! I LOVE YOU! It’s fine as long as I have you
Ra,Ra,Rabbit! LOVE ME DO! Ra,Ra,Rabbit! I LOVE YOU! Hold me close

止めどなく溢れ出す愛言葉 誰よりも拘ってしまうから
急かされて分からないままなんて 絶対に耐えられる訳ないの

tomedo naku afure dasu ai kotoba dare yori mo kodawatte shimau kara
sekasarete wakaranai mama nante zettai ni taerareru wake nai no

I end up obsessing over endlessly overflowing words of love more than anyone else
so there’s no way I’ll absolutely be able to stand being hurried when you still don’t understand

Love it! 独りよがりでもいいから Love it! 私だけのもの
Love it! 満たされないこの心は Love it! 君を求めてる

Love it! hitori yogari demo ii kara Love it! watashi dake no mono
Love it! mitasarenai kono kokoro wa Lovei t! kimi o motometeru

Love it! It doesn’t matter if I’m self-centered. Love it! You belong to me
Love it! My unsatisfied heart. Love it! Wants you

Nothingness

Not exactly my favourite from this album, but it was short, so why not?

★ Lyrics: Tsukiyama Sae (築山さえ)

深く深く仄暗い湖は
今日も昨日と変わらずに凪いでいて
遠くて近いような夜空にそっと
満月は静かに輝いている

fukaku fukaku honogurai mizuumi wa
kyou mo kinou to kawarazu ni naideite
tookute chikai you na yozora ni sotto
mangetsu wa shizuka ni kagayaiteiru

The very, very, dim lake
is calm today, same as yesterday
Gently, in the far, yet close looking night sky
the full moon silently shines

孤独に佇む私の
尽きることのない哀しみたちはきっと
この湖に浮かぶことも沈むこともない

kodoku ni tatazumu watashi no
tsukiru koto no nai kanashimitachi wa kitto
kono mizuumi ni ukabu koto mo shizumu koto mo nai

Standing still in solitude,
my inexhaustible sorrows will surely
neither float on this lake nor sink

青く青く仄暗い湖は
私の心 鏡のように映す
遠くて近いような夜空にそっと
届くはずのない手を伸ばしてみる

aoku aoku honogurai mizuumi wa
watashi no kokoro kagami no you ni utsusu
tookute chikai you na yozora ni sotto
todoku hazu no nai te o nobashite miru

The blue, blue, dim lake
reflects my heart like a mirror
Gently, to the far, yet close looking night sky
I try stretching out my hand that has no way of reaching

孤独に佇む私の
尽きることのない寂しさたちはきっと
この湖に浮かぶことも沈むこともない

kodoku ni tatazumu watashi no
tsukiru koto no nai samishisatachi wa kitto
kono mizuumi ni ukabu koto mo shizumu koto mo nai

Standing still in solitude,
my inexhaustible loneliness will surely
neither float on this lake nor sink
