Happy Memories     Sung by Rena Uehara

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Shinya Ishikawa / Arrangement: Michio Kinugasa

 

How many days will pass, how many months

Before I can forget this memory?

 

It was a precious, happy memory

Of being so in love that I could barely breathe

 

Slender fingertips brushing back my hair

The tint hasn’t faded from the places we touched

 

To keep us from rewinding to that day, that moment, when we met

I can never see you again, while we live under the same sky

 

It won’t disappear with time or distance

All I can do is flee from place to place, pursued by this memory

 

It was a precious, happy memory

Of being so in love that you were all I could see

 

I just nodded at whatever you said

With your eyes still gazing straight at me

 

To keep us from returning to the path that we shared

I will never see you again, while we live under the same sky

 

Slender fingertips brushing back my hair

The tint hasn’t faded from the places we touched

 

To keep us from rewinding to that day, that moment, when we met

I can never see you again, while we live under the same sky

Loving Heart                            Sung by Akari Tsuda

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Michio Kinugasa / Arrangement: Michio Kinugasa

 

I really let my guard down, thinking you were boring

But now, somehow, you’re all I see

 

My feelings of affection pile up softly like the snow

 

The day may come when we choose our own dreams and part

But I believe we will reach the same future

The affection in my heart turns to love

 

You don’t spoil me, there are no words I want to hear

But if you hold me tight and want me, that’s all I need

 

My feelings of love pile up softly like the snow

 

As we cross over these walls, even if we hurt each other

We’ll feel all kinds of happiness together with the pain

Our loving hearts become one

 

Our feelings of love pile up softly like the snow

 

The day may come when we choose our own dreams and part

But I believe we will reach the same future

My loving heart becomes eternal

Gentle Lies                  Sung by Rena Uehara

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Junya Matsuoka / Arrangement: Junya Matsuoka

 

At the café where we always met, the corner store where we always stopped

Somehow, at some point, I stopped remembering you

 

The day that we parted, you promised me

That, in our next life, you would stay with me forever

 

Those final, gentle lies are my greatest treasure

Even now I feel like my wounded heart is healing

The snowy sky is painfully beautiful, because it’s your sky, too

 

I could hate and envy the one you chose

But no matter how I try, I could never be her

 

The day that we parted, you promised me

You would never forget that you loved me most of all

 

Those final, gentle lies will be my treasure forever

Even now I feel like my wounded heart is healing

I look up to the sky and pray that you will always be happy

 

As I smiled and nodded at your lies, I was the biggest liar of all

 

Those final, gentle lies are my greatest treasure

Even now I feel like my wounded heart is healing

The snowy sky is painfully beautiful, because it’s your sky, too

 

I’ll never forget your gentle lies

Love Out of Reach (Chiaki Version)        Sung by Chiaki Izumi

Lyrics: Haruki Kitahara / Composition: Kazusa Touma / Arrangement: Kazusa Touma

 

Are you playing the loner? I found myself wondering why

Before I knew it, I was drawn to you more than anyone

 

How do I reflect my heart in this mirror?

 

If I keep feeling this hopeless love, will it show itself one day?

Until that hazy answer comes into view, my love won’t go anywhere

 

The day I first spoke to you, and you turned to me

You were so dazzling that I couldn’t look straight at you

 

How do I trace myself into your heart?

 

If I keep feeling this unfulfilled love, will the day come when it appears?

Give me one little glimpse of that hazy answer, and I know my love will come alive

 

How do I reflect my heart in this mirror?

 

If I keep feeling this hopeless love, will it show itself one day?

Until that hazy answer comes into view, my love won’t go anywhere

Sparkling Heart       Sung by Rena Uehara

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Michio Kinugasa / Arrangement: Michio Kinugasa

 

Woke up before my alarm went off

Just couldn’t wait any longer for today

 

Watching the streets come alive from the corner of my eye

I threw a wink at the sleepy moon

 

As I breathed in the perfectly clear morning air

I felt like my heart could become just as clean

 

My best fresh smile for my new beginning

A sweet kiss for the future I’ve yet to meet

Twinkling and overflowing behind the glass

My unstoppable sparkling heart

 

Looking down at the lamp-lit streets

I threw a wink at the groggy moon

 

As the stars winked on one by one

I felt like my heart could start shining too

 

My best fresh smile for this day as it ends

A sweet kiss for the tomorrow I’ve yet to meet

Fluttering and overflowing behind the glass

My sparkling heart will never cease

 

My best fresh smile for my new beginning

A sweet kiss for the future I’ve yet to meet

Twinkling and overflowing behind the glass

My unstoppable sparkling heart

Bridging the Gap     Sung by Sasara & Ma-ryan

Lyrics: Rena Uehara / Composition: Junya Matsuoka / Arrangement: Junya Matsuoka

 

We always kept our real thoughts shut away

Now our odd pair has met a new beginning

 

We’ve walked at different paces

Taking long days and months to bridge this gap

 

Each making up for what the other lacks

We’ll shine in our own way

 

The two of us may be rivals

But when the time comes, we can lean on each other

A strange bond connects us

Hang on to this give-and-take with me

 

Some nights we never run out of gossip

Now we’ve got old funny stories, too

 

Where our gazes meet we understand each other

And so the gap is bridged a little more

 

If we knew everything it might not work out

This distance could be just perfect!

 

The two of us may be comrades in arms

But let’s keep going in our own selfish ways

A strange bond connects us

Keep up this neutral distance with me

 

Each making up for what the other lacks

We’ll shine in our own way

 

The two of us may be rivals

But when the time comes, we can lean on each other

A strange bond connects us

Hang on to this give-and-take with me

Twinkle Stars☆彡                 Sung by Sasara & Ma-ryan

Lyrics: Rena Uehara / Composition: Michio Kinugasa / Arrangement: Masashi Tsubakimoto

 

“I wish I could take over the world!”

A story begins

“I wish I could be more honest.”

We send our wishes to the stars

 

We’ve made it through every pinch that came our way

The power of our friendship is in perfect form! Full throttle!

 

As I look up at the vast sky

All the uncertainty in my heart clears away

 

Little twinkling stars☆彡Into the shining night sky

We’ll leap out now—hey, make a wish

Please, twinkling stars☆彡It’ll work out, right?!

Until I win this heart-pounding dream

 

“I wish I could be with them.”

If you wish with all your heart

“I wish my feelings could get through.”

It’ll be granted☆ Sure thing!

 

Do-re-mi, if we join our voices and sing together

La-la-la, extraordinary smiles will burst into bloom

 

Even when I’m feeling negative

The ambition I’ve aimed for is at the base of my heart

 

Little twinkling stars☆彡If I reach out my hand

You look close enough to touch—but because you aren’t

Please, twinkling stars☆彡You’ll do something, right?!

Until I win this thrilling dream

 

Little twinkling stars☆彡Into the shining night sky

We’ll leap out now—hey, make a wish

Please, twinkling stars☆彡It’ll work out, right?!

Until I win this heart-pounding dream

Rainbow Future       Sung by Suara

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Shinya Ishikawa / Arrangement: Michio Kinugasa

 

A brilliant, shining rainbow future

I know a new meeting is waiting out there for me

 

I’ve checked in the mirror over and over—a perfect smile, ready to go

 

With hope rushing in my heart, I’ll make a careful start

My skirt flutters out as I leap over puddles

And my emotions flutter and soar up into the sky

 

Taking off running toward that rainbow future

Following the rhythm as I go, a gentle harmony

A brilliant, shining rainbow future

I know something wonderful is waiting out there for me

 

For my friends, for myself—a perfect smile, ready to go

 

I want to be wonderful, but I keep getting stuck

My friends’ kind words flutter through my chest

And I flutter and soar up into the sky

 

Taking off running toward that rainbow future

Tuning my heart to the harmony we play

A brilliant, shining rainbow future

I know a new meeting is waiting out there for me

 

Taking off running toward that rainbow future

Following the rhythm as I go, a gentle harmony

A brilliant, shining rainbow future

I know something wonderful is waiting out there for me

Just One Star                            Sung by Rena Uehara

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Shinya Ishikawa / Arrangement: Junya Matsuoka

 

The sunset today was so beautiful it hurt

A tiny bit of worry welled up and blurred my heart

 

I looked up at the sky before it could spill over

And found a star of the future, gently watching me

 

Shining in my own color and shape

I’m aiming for that single star

Nurturing the courage to stay and overcome any pain

I want to become someone my loved ones are proud of

 

No matter how disheartened I get, there will always be a tomorrow

I’ll turn that tiny bit of worry into wings for my heart

 

I looked up at the sky and it was still gleaming

The star of the future was still there, gently watching me

 

To shine and light the way for others, I’m aiming for that single star

Nurturing the courage to stand and face any pain

I want to be someone my loved ones are proud of

 

Shining in my own color and shape, I’m aiming for that single star

Nurturing the courage to stay and overcome any pain

 

To shine and light the way for others

I’m aiming for that single star

Nurturing the courage to stand and face any pain

I want to be someone my loved ones are proud of… I want to be

Prism               Sung by Sasara & Ma-ryan

Lyrics: Rena Uehara / Composition: Michio Kinugasa / Arrangement: Jiro Miyanaga

 

No one knows whether it’s dream or reality, but I’m looking for the answer

Even if I run into the wall of this maze I want to stay strong

 

I never could have come this far alone

I’m leaving my two hundred footsteps here

 

Pass through the prism and awaken the power hidden in your heart

You’ll find a side of you you never knew, so keep your eyes forward

 

Things gained through sheer coincidence still have meaning

Even if you miss an important piece, things will connect in the end

 

If there’s no chance of victory at all

Just open every door of hope you can find

 

The dream I found along the prism’s many pathways

Even if I take the long way around, I’ll regain the true future some day

 

Pass through the prism and awaken the power hidden in your heart

You’ll find a side of you you never knew, so keep your eyes forward

 

The dream I found along the prism’s many pathways

Even if I take the long way around, I’ll regain the true future some day

Magic Melody            Sung by Silfa & Yuki & Ma-ryan & Haruka

Lyrics: Rena Uehara / Composition: Junya Matsuoka / Arrangement: Shinichi Sakurai

 

Just hum this magic melody

The world will shine in all the colors of the rainbow

 

This meeting swooped down suddenly

“It’s almost like destiny!”

Never fear, keep stepping forward

All you can do is go at your own pace!

 

If I could just tell you how I felt…

But I get flustered around you and start babbling

My hurried “panic voice”

 

I’ll give you this magic melody

Supporting you whenever you’re in a pinch

So let’s play this magic melody together

There may be foes all around, but I’m here, singing just for you

 

Seeds of trouble you didn’t know were planted

If you’re feeling small, you’ll need encouragement

When you’re exhausted and flat on the ground

I’ll restore your energy! Knock ‘em out!!

 

Feeling this strange sympathy…

You can’t lose to your rivals

A one-hit turnaround at the last moment

 

I’ll send you this magic melody

I don’t want to give up this endless beat

So let’s sing this magic melody together

We go together perfectly, a prince and his princess of song

 

I’ll give you this magic melody

Supporting you whenever you’re in a pinch

So let’s play this magic melody together

There may be foes all around, but I’m here, singing just for you

This World                  Sung by Akari Tsuda

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Michio Kinugasa / Arrangement: Michio Kinugasa

 

We each have different tastes in people

That’s why I was able to meet you

 

I don’t know what my future holds

You gave me the strength not to fall to uncertainty

 

This world is overflowing with love

The sunrise shines on you and me

I want you to know that I love you

With all my heart, I promise I’ll never let go of your hand

 

We laugh and cry over the same things

That’s why we were drawn to each other

 

My future isn’t set in stone

You gave me the strength to keep dreaming

 

This world is overflowing with love

The glittering stars shine on you and me

I want you to know that I love you

With all my heart, wherever I am, I promise I’ll never forget

 

This world is overflowing with love

The sunrise shines on you and me

I want you to know that I love you

With all my heart, I promise I’ll never let go of your hand

Future World             Sung by Suara

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Shinya Ishikawa / Arrangement: Shinya Ishikawa & Michio Kinugasa

 

With just one little mistake

I lost my way, set adrift

 

Keeping my weakness hidden in my heart

I can’t fight for anyone

 

When you showed me the path to follow

You taught me how truly strong I am

 

A world reached through meetings and partings

With you there’s nothing that can frighten me

A world reached through meetings and partings

All you have to do is stay with me

 

I worked my way through every problem

But fell into despair, without the answer I wanted

 

Though I may keep my weakness hidden in my heart

I can fight for someone else’s sake

 

As you shone a light on the answer I longed for

You taught me how truly strong I am

 

A future reached by meandering paths

With you I can go anywhere

A future reached by meandering paths

All you have to do is stay with me

 

When you showed me the path to follow

You taught me how truly strong I am

 

A world reached through meetings and partings

With you there’s nothing that can frighten me

A world reached through meetings and partings

All you have to do is stay with me

Thanks a Lot              Sung by Akari Tsuda

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Michio Kinugasa / Arrangement: Michio Kinugasa

 

You’ve stuck with me like it’s the obvious thing

I thought I was helping you, but it’s all been you

 

Whether we do what we like, whether problems arise

Tomorrow will come all the same

 

If only we could float up into the blue sky like clouds

Changing shape and drifting wherever we pleased

 

(I can see) Inside my heart (I can see) there you are

Our meeting was inevitable

(Thanks a lot) I want to tell you (Thanks a lot) always and forever

We’re joined by an invisible bond, my best friend

 

Sometimes we fight, sometimes we don’t know what to say

But before we know it we’re both laughing again

 

However many years pass, even if we can’t see each other

Let’s keep chatting like we always have

 

We could float up to the blue sky, freer than the clouds

Drifting along wherever the wind took us

 

(You can see) Inside your heart (You can see) there I am

We may seem completely different, but we’re really the same

(Smiles a lot) I want to show you (Smiles a lot) I want you to show me

We’re joined by a beautiful bond, my best friend

 

(I can see) Inside my heart (I can see) there you are

Our meeting was inevitable

(Thanks a lot) I want to tell you (Thanks a lot) always and forever

We’re joined by an invisible bond, my best friend
