Twinkle Snow / Setsuna Ogiso

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Junya Matsuoka

 

We talked and talked until it got dark

Beneath a clouded winter sky

 

I don’t know when it started, but every time we part

I just want to stay with you a little longer—which really means…

 

Softly

The snow piles up on the feelings of love that I found tonight

Will I find this dear feeling again tomorrow?

I want to shine more brightly for you than I did today

As I gaze up at the flickering sky, the snow kisses me gently

 

If you find a girlfriend, somewhere along the line

Will you keep talking to me like this?

 

Some day, your girlfriend will come first

I hate the thought of you leaving me—which really means…

 

Softly

The snow piles up on the feelings of love that I found tonight

Will I find this half-weeping feeling again tomorrow?

I want to shine more brightly for you than I did today

As I gaze up at the flickering sky, I’ll kiss the snow back, gently

 

I’m growing up as I discover all these feelings

The snow will wrap me up protectively until the budding season

 

Twinkling

The snow piles up on all the feelings I found this year

Come spring, a new me will start to sprout

Hoping to shine more brightly for you than I did this year

As I gaze up at the flickering sky

I’ll make my wish to the snow, pray to the snow, kiss the snow, gently

 

Like a Romance / Kazusa Touma

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: 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 of the heart, it’s like a romance

Like when I think of you before I go to sleep

This feeling of the heart, it’s like a romance

I’m glad to have met you, I honestly think so

 

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

 

The coffee I drank to play the adult

It became a necessity every morning

 

That feeling of the heart, it was like a romance

Looking for you first

That feeling of the heart, it was like a romance

I am glad to have met you, I honestly think so

 

“You know, if you were a boy

I would choose you.” When I said that, you blushed in annoyance

I will never forget that

 

That feeling of the heart, it was like a romance

Wanting to know you the most

That feeling of the heart, it was really a romance

I am thankful that I met you, I honestly think so

 

Happy Memories / Haruki Kitahara

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Shinya Ishikawa

 

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

White Album / Io Mizusawa

Lyrics: Yuki Morikawa / Composition: Shinya Ishikawa

 

Though we spend day after day out of touch

Our feelings are always right there beside us

 

We claim we’ll be fine even if we can’t see each other

But our brave words are always mixed with sighs

 

The treasure we left in the passing seasons

It’s a puzzle missing its most important piece

Just as the white snow covers the streets

We can fill up the blanks in this album

 

When I feel like the weight of loneliness might break me

Passing anxious days all on my own

 

You tell me it’s all right, pat my shoulder,

And bring me back around with your smile

 

Even if we separate, I’ll have your words

Strange as it seems, that’s enough to make me happy

The fleeting snow envelops my secret thoughts

Dyeing the pure white pages of this album

 

The treasure we left in the passing seasons

It’s a puzzle missing its most important piece

Just as the white snow covers the streets

We can fill up the blanks in this album

 

Sound of Destiny / Takeya Iizuka

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Kazuhide Nakagami

 

Captured by that shapeless thing called love

I know there is such a thing as love that stops your heart

The longing that you made me feel every time we met

I still believe in it—it will never disappear

 

Unending passion that never rests

Where does it come from? Where does it sleep?

 

The stars draw the path of my destiny, countless shining lights

There’s one thing I know now—I will never leave you

I close my eyes and hear my heartbeat, proof that I’m alive

Following the rhythm my heart pounds out

I’ll dance as I go! As far as it takes me…

 

Even though I’m tired of hurting and being hurt

I still fall in love that takes my breath away

 

A world of darkness may await me on my path

But I know I’ll be able to keep my eyes bright

 

The stars turn the wheel of a single, flowing destiny

Dwelling in the hearts of people, strong and weak, hot and cold

Touch your chest and feel your heartbeat, proof that you’re alive

Following the melody the stars play

I’ll sing as I go! Forever and on…

 

My Heart is Always With You / Setsuna Ogiso

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Naoya Shimokawa

 

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

Gentle Lies / Kazusa Touma

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: 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

 

Answer / Haruki Kitahara, Setsuna Ogiso

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: 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

 

Loving Heart / Takeya Iizuka, Io Mizusawa

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: 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

On Saying Goodbye / Haruki Kitahara, Setsuna Ogiso, Kazusa Touma

Lyrics: Naoya Shimokawa / Composition: Naoya Shimokawa

 

Your innocent voice still hasn’t faded from my ears

Those happy days hid quiet feelings

 

But I never doubted this happiness

Never learned the meaning of the word “goodbye”

 

This isn’t a dream—in this world

The days when I just cried and cried aloud

Are nowhere to be found

Hey, I wonder whether the answer lay

In some place we could never reach

If only I’d never met you, I wouldn’t feel this pain

 

The whispered voices of lovers warm the town

Those happy days hid deep sadness, too

 

But this happiness kept me from seeing anything else

I got carried away and left the word “goodbye” behind

 

I want to believe that I’m still in a dream

Even though I’ve woken up from it by now

The days when I just laughed and laughed are nowhere to be found

But there’s no mistaking that place

The two of us were there with smiling faces

If only I’d never met you, I wouldn’t feel this pain

 

Winter comes again, not for us, but for lovers

 

This isn’t a dream—in this world

The days when I just cried and cried aloud

Are nowhere to be found

Hey, I wonder whether the answer lay in some place we could never reach

That winter when I realized I couldn’t stand to be without you

 

Love Out of Reach / Haruki Kitahara

Lyrics: Haruki Kitahara / Composition: 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
