The Magic of Time                Sung by Setsuna Ogiso

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

 

Suffering and smiling go hand in hand

When I’m with you, I can believe that much

 

Even to a bare and withered tree

Miracles can happen

Look—so much white light

Makes cherry blossoms bloom in the middle of winter

 

I know my wish will come true—I’ll close my eyes

And speak the magic of time once again, from zero

 

I’ve spent so many restless days, but now

I feel I could look at the world with kinder eyes

 

Even to a bare and withered tree

Miracles can happen

Look—shining inside me

Cherry blossoms bloom in the middle of winter

 

I know my wish will come true, because it will get through

If I speak the magic of time once again, from here

 

A future with you falls down, glittering

Forever and ever, I want to cherish this

 

I know my wish will come true—I’ll close my eyes

And speak the magic of time once again, from zero

Once again, from zero

My Heart is Always With You        Sung by Akari Tsuda

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

 

The sky looks like it’s about to cry

A cold wind tells me snow is on the way

 

I don’t want to leave… but without saying a word

I let go of your hand and wave goodbye

 

I watch and watch as you vanish into the distance

Even though anxiety bears down on me

 

My heart will always be with you

Filling these lonely nights with happiness

My heart will always be with you, so I want you to know

That even when I can’t see you, I’ll be okay

 

Under the weeping sky

The cold wind that spoke to me passes me by

 

I squeeze what’s left of your warmth tightly

Shut it away in my pocket so I don’t lose it

 

My heart will always, always be with you

Keeping me company on lonely nights

My heart will always, always be with you, so I know

That even when I can’t see you, I can laugh and say, “I’m fine”

 

The weakness I hide by pretending to be fine

If showing you would mean losing you, I’ll stay and keep pretending

 

Maybe your heart feels me close by

And you’re looking up at the snowy sky, feeling the same way I do

My heart will always be with you, so I want you to know

That even when I can’t see you, I’ll be okay

Closing            Sung by Rena Uehara

Lyrics: Naoya Shimokawa & Naoko Sutani / Composition: Naoya Shimokawa / Arrangement: Michio Kinugasa

 

Still clinging to days that won’t come back—one day, yes, one day

Before my weak heart could be caught I softly pushed you away

 

Ah, this feeling hurts too much

Who are you? Where have you been hiding?

 

Terrified and hanging my head

The real me has been waiting

 

That season again—the night sky was white, and you were there

I was glad you didn’t touch me, but my heart ached

 

I don’t want to let you go, I don’t want to leave you, but I’ve been on the verge of giving up

I can’t fall in love any more, the pain of loss is too great to bear

Still clinging to days that won’t come back—some day, yes, some day

All I need is to have you beside me, even though I can’t say it

 

Now, I have to hold my head up and walk

The real me has to realize

 

That season again—I’m looking up at this same sky

I know what’s been hurt can never go back to the way it was

 

But I don’t want to let you go, I don’t want to leave you, I’m not giving up now

Your heart might be hurt, but I can’t lie to the way I feel

Find me one of these days, find me with a smile on my face

Just stay with me and tell me that you’ll never leave me alone again

 

Still clinging to days that won’t come back, I know, yes, I know

If I don’t accept how I felt that day I won’t be able to move on

I don’t want to let you go, I don’t want to leave you—my single wish

Is to make you know I love you, even though I refuse to say it

Routes             Sung by Setsuna Ogiso

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: M.I.S.N. / Arrangement: Junya Matsuoka

 

This route leading endlessly into the future

I’ll trust in it, however far it goes

 

I stop and stand, uncertain, unable to see anything

 

A warm light pushes me forward

The door to tomorrow is waiting ahead

 

Toward the other side of the endless sky

I’ll start walking without fear

 

This route leading endlessly into the future

I’ll trust in it, however far it goes

 

Pain and grief don’t last forever

 

Everyone is loved and valued by someone

You’re not alone

 

The warm light is always close by

And you have the key to open the door

 

At the other side of the endless sky

Countless futures unfold

 

Until this limited life runs out

We will keep walking this route

 

Toward the other side of the endless sky

I’ll start walking without fear

 

This route leading endlessly into the future

I’ll trust in it, however far it goes

I Want to Think of You       Sung by Setsuna Ogiso

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

 

A cold rain comes down, immersing the city in darkness

The droplets slipping down the glass look like falling stars

 

In this moment, as they flow, I remember you

The memories I’ve treasured bring me happiness

 

I want to enjoy this quiet, shapeless love of mine

I want to think of you, just like this, a little longer

 

The cold rain stops, the darkness is washed away

The stars scattered across the sky look like they could start falling

 

Counting all the little things I love about you on my fingers

I stop, gaze up at the starry sky, give thanks for my happiness

 

I want to savor in the pain in my chest now and then

I want to keep looking at you, just like this, a little longer

 

I want to enjoy this quiet, shapeless love of mine

I want to think of you, just like this, a little longer

 

I want to savor the pain in my chest now and then

I want to keep looking at you, just like this, a little longer

Keep your eyes on me

Powder Snow            Sung by Setsuna Ogiso

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

 

The powder snow falls gently from the sky

Hurting my heart as I catch it in my palms

Are you standing still somewhere, watching it?

Looking up at the sky, do you remember?

 

As you walked across the snow, looking so happy

You were truly lovely to me

 

I still remember how white the snow was that day

And the warmth of our lips as they touched for the first time

I still love you

 

The powder snow falls onto me

Like your kindness and warmth

As you talked with me, looking so delighted

I loved you dearly with all my heart

 

I still dream of the white world I saw that day

I haven’t forgotten the touch of your cold fingertips

I still love you

 

I still remember how white the snow was that day

And the warmth of our lips as they touched for the first time

 

You’re just like the powder snow, pure and beautiful

I pray to the snow that I can be the same—I still love you

Answer           Sung by Rena Uehara

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

 

I loved you so truly, so deeply

Why did the day come that parted us?

 

My wish is still for you to forget everything

 

The constant pain I feel boring deep into my chest

The place that once held my feelings for you

Will never be filled again

 

I love you so truly, so deeply

Why did the day come that parted us?

 

I’m still waiting for your return, just like always

 

I’ve called your name over and over

Even in my dreams you never look back at me

You’re never coming back

 

I’m still looking for the answer, the reason we parted

 

You called my name over and over

Even in my dreams, I never looked back at you

I just ran away

 

The constant frigid pain I feel deep in my chest

Some day, you’ll bring it warmth again

I believe you will

Like Love       Sung by Akari Tsuda

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

 

We like different colors and clothes, our personalities are nothing like each other

But for some reason we laugh at the same things, and fall for the same people

 

It was so funny watching you drink your coffee

Taking the bitterness to play the adult

 

This feeling I have in my chest is very much like love

I think of you before I go to sleep

This feeling I have in my chest really is just like love

From the bottom of my heart, I’m glad I met you

 

The two of us dream different dreams, we walk two different paths

 

The coffee I drank to play the adult

I never go a morning without it now

 

The feeling I had in my chest then was very much like love

I looked for you above all else

The feeling I had in my chest then really was love

From the bottom of my heart, I’m glad I met you

 

Remember the day when I told you, if you were a boy

I would choose you? You blushed and grumbled

I’ll never forget it

 

The feeling I had in my chest then was very much like love

I wanted to know you more than anyone else

The feeling I had in my chest then really was love

From the bottom of my heart, I’m thankful I met you

Many Futures            Sung by Rena Uehara

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

 

Whenever you gain something precious

You’ll always have to throw something else away

 

If you can’t choose anything to discard

You’ll never gain anything again

 

The moment I solve the mystery it just gets more entangled

My heart wavers cruelly, and I sigh more with every regret

 

An impossible dream-like reality

I’ll take it all just as it comes

I believe that in many worlds

I’ll meet my many selves

 

Whenever you gain someone precious

You’ll have to hurt someone else and throw them away

 

If you can’t make that cut

You’ll never gain anyone again

 

Unable to break out of the maze I wander, the fog grows deeper

My heart wavers cruelly, and I see how selfish and inexperienced I am

 

But this impossible dream-like reality

I’ll take it all just as it comes

I believe that in many worlds

I’ll meet your many selves

 

The tangled mystery unravels, I slip out of the maze

I believe my many selves and yours

Will give me that answer

 

An impossible dream-like reality

I’ll take it all just as it comes

I believe that in many worlds

I’ll meet many futures

I Always Will                            Sung by Akari Tsuda

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

 

Just having you there next to me

Makes something heat up in my chest

The most trivial things are precious to me

Special to me because of you

 

That invisible something you gave to me

I want you to feel that it’s right here

 

Even if I made the whole world my enemy

I would throw everything away to protect you

I’ll set fire to everything that binds me

There’s nothing to fear, and I will always…

 

The real you that you never show anyone

I’ll accept all of it

The real me that I never show anyone

You’ve accepted all of it, too

 

That shapeless something I want to give you

I want you to feel that it’s right here

 

Even if I had to trade the whole world away

I would give everything to protect you

I’ll crush everything that binds me

There’s nothing to fear, and I will always…

 

That invisible something you gave me

I’ll show you that it’s right here

 

Even if I made the whole world my enemy

I would throw everything away to protect you

I’ll set fire to everything that binds me

There’s nothing to fear, and you will always…

Tears to Tiara Victory Song –from Hispania-   Sung by D. Terada

Lyrics: Susumu Mameda / Translation:  Naoko.O / Composition: Susumu Mameda / Arrangement: Michio Kinugasa

 

When you feel you lost your way

And you feel all alone

Wandering alone, in the misty forest

And finding no one passing by

 

Listen to the voice from your heart

And you will find a way

Leading you where you have never been

And leading you to be stronger

 

Now, standing in the flaming sunset

It makes me feel so lonely

But look up to the sky

 

Remember there’s a brightest star

That’s shining bright so high above you,

Whenever there’s the darkest sky

That’s making the light so small to shine through

Someday you’ll find the star above you,

And you will know the glory days are waiting for you

 

You feel gentle breeze on your face

As you walk down the hill

In your deepest dream

That’s the place you’d call home

The place that you are longing for

 

Now, reaching for it with your small hands

It is so far away

But look up to the sky

 

Remember there’s a brightest star,

So fly away to a new world

Whenever there’s the darkest sky

That’s making the light so small to shine through

Someday you’ll find the star above you,

And you will know the glory days are waiting for you

Until –from Hispania-         Sung by Rena Uehara

Lyrics: Miu / Composition: Miu / Arrangement: Michio Kinugasa

 

Can you hear my voice?

The season goes on as I think of you

 

It’s nothing to be sad about, something strong and gentle

I’m singing to you from far, far away

 

I can’t forget about you, as I become an adult and then a child again

It would be better if we never met again, some day, somewhere

I’d only fall in love again the way I did back then

 

A gleaming sea of silvergrass

I sat and gazed at your profile

 

It was a glimpse of eternity in the midst of a fleeting moment

The feeling that you taught to me

 

I’ll never forget you, however many people I might meet

You’re there laughing in my memories, some day, somewhere

In my heart, that will never change

 

And so I continue on my endless journey

Turning my memories into this gentle song

 

I can’t forget about you, as I become an adult and then a child again

It would be better if we never met again, some day, somewhere

I’ll never forget you, however many people I might meet

You’re there laughing in my memories, some day, somewhere

In my heart, that will never change

Still a Boy to You     Sung by Suara

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

 

Let’s dance until dawn, dressed in the wind, shake off our sadness

Accompanied by the moon and stars, I’ll dance with you forever

 

Back then, after the rain, I would chase rainbows as far as they went

There was warmth and peace in your gently smiling eyes

 

I’ve realized that I’ll always be a boy to you

 

Let’s dance until dawn, dressed in the wind, shake off our sadness

We’ll move the moon and stars, slowly, then wildly

Thinking of you, thinking of dreams, bringing destiny along

Accompanied by the moon and stars, I’ll dance with you forever

 

Still chasing this wide, enchanting world as far as it goes

Still feeling warmth and peace in your gently smiling eyes

 

Those eyes always reflect me as a boy

 

Let’s dance until dawn, dressed in the wind, scattering joy as we go

We’ll move the sea and sky, lightly, then wildly

Thinking of you, thinking of dreams, overcoming destiny

Accompanied by the sea and sky, I’ll dance with you forever

 

Though I’ve overcome my weakness, gained strength, learned to fear nothing

It matters not to you, easily turning me back to a boy

 

Let’s dance until dawn, dressed in the wind, shake off our sadness

We’ll move the moon and stars, slowly, then wildly

Thinking of you, thinking of dreams, bringing destiny along

Accompanied by the moon and stars, I’ll dance with you forever

 

I’ll dance with you forever
