  1. Love Out of Reach

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

  1. White Album

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

  1. Sound of Destiny

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…

 

We will go dancing along to whenever

the rhythms of our hearts take us

heard “Sound of Destiny”

  1. After All (Feelings Spelled Out)

Lyrics: Miu / Composition: Shinya Ishikawa

 

A flock of birds takes off from the earth

Where is my lonely heart supposed to go?

 

I still have the kisses we shared that day

Our matching heartbeats as we held each other tightly

 

The summer I spent in love with you is over

And the memories it brought are returning to the sky

You were so dazzling and kind, and I loved you

I’m still searching for your voice and your dreams

Stay just a little longer, just like this

 

Only the lights adorning the weekend streets

Wrap up my heart as it bleeds through

 

Lovers sway in silhouette

Before I know it, longing overtakes me

 

I think of the last autumn I spent with you

Of the footsteps long gone, of your hands, of tomorrow

Being happy by your side was everything

The confusion and loneliness still show themselves

But soon enough I’ll forget it all, just like this

 

I call your dear name, but the wind just sweeps it away

Taking me far, far from the past, from that day

 

Some day—I know it—I’ll wait for winter

Follow my memories back to this place

More than anyone, more than ever

I’ll sing of you, even if the words never reach you

Feel what I feel and and believe in a new time

  1. Twinkle Snow

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

  1. Happy Memories

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

  1. Answer

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

  1. My Heart is Always With You

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

  1. Powder Snow

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Naoya Shimokawa

 

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

  1. Closing

Lyrics: Naoya Shimokawa & Naoko Sutani / Composition: Naoya Shimokawa

 

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
