  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

MC

Good evening, everyone! I’m Setsuna!

Thank you for coming to my solo show today!

 

Wow, there are so many of you, I can’t believe it! Everyone in the back, can you see me? I can see you just fine from here!

 

All righty. Today is my first time doing a live show under my own name,

and my heart has been racing since before we started, all through rehearsal and backstage. I don’t think I’ve been this nervous about anything since the School Festival show… Oh, come to think of it, at other shows, there were people who had actually seen that School Festival show. I don’t suppose there’s anyone here who knows about… What?! There are?! Thank you so much!

 

Whether you’re seeing me for the first time today, or whether you’ve been supporting me the whole time, I’m going to put all my heart into enjoying singing for you, so I want you all to enjoy it, too!

 

So, we’ve played two songs for you already. The opening number was “Love Out of Reach,” and then Yuki Morikawa’s debut song, “White Album.” I’ve spoken a bit about these two before, but I sang them at the School Festival, which was my first time ever singing in front of a group of people, and they’re very dear to my heart.

 

“Love Out of Reach” in particular was my first original song, created with my fellow band members at the time. While we were making it, and even after we all went out into the world, a lot happened that I can’t talk about here. Happiness, sadness, joy, pain, so much of everything.

 

Well, I could go on and on about that, but we’ve got lots of music lined up for you today, and I don’t want to keep you here forever, so we’d better get to the next song! This is “Feeling Heart.”

  1. Feeling Heart

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Naoya Shimokawa

 

The coincidences kept piling up

I met you and fell in love

My heartbeat is embarrassingly loud

What’s going on? This isn’t like me

 

As today ends and tomorrow passes, stay with me

I want to believe in the two of us forever

 

Since the day I met you

It seems like I can always feel everything

Just having you beside me

Forever, you’re my only feeling heart

 

Evening brings the chilly night wind

But with you I never feel cold

The colors of the city light up so beautifully

I can feel myself changing, too

 

Even when the clouds clear away, there aren’t many stars above us

Some day I want to look up at the whole sky with you

 

It seems like miracles could happen

Walking the same path beneath the starry sky with you

Believing in each other means loving each other

Forever, you’re my only feeling heart

  1. Reverie

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Michio Kinugasa

 

Our childhood dreams are unfading scribbles

Drawn just as we please, leading us to the future we depict

 

The clear sky is endlessly blue

Filling and enchanting our innocent hearts

 

I wish I could finally get my wings and fly

Free across the sky our pure eyes longed for

 

If just one of my endless wishes could be granted

I want to grasp my dreams, never surrendering them

Our childhood dreams are unfading scribbles

Drawn just as we please, leading us to the future we depict

 

The sound of a bell ringing far away

Reaches our honest hearts and resonates

 

The light becomes seven colors and draws an arc

I want to fly over the rainbow our pure eyes longed for

 

I wish endlessly for things I don’t want to forget

With someone to support me, I can dream about them

Our childhood dreams are unfading scribbles

Drawn just as we please, leading us to the future we depict

 

I wish I could finally get my wings and fly

Free across the sky our pure eyes longed for

 

If just one of my endless wishes could be granted

I want to grasp my dreams, never surrendering them

 

I wish endlessly for things I don’t want to forget

With someone to support me, I can dream about them

Our childhood dreams are unfading scribbles

Drawn just as we please, leading us to the future we depict

  1. Routes

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: M.I.S.N.

 

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

MC

Those last three songs were  “Feeling Heart,” “Reverie,” and “Routes”! Whew! My heart and body are both feeling warm now. Thank you so much for your energy!

 

So, this show was planned by the owner of this venue, Troy. Thank you, Owner! Also, this is probably well known to regulars of Troy, but whenever I perform here, it’s always been as a guest singer with Routes, billed as “Routes featuring Setsuna.” But today, the members of Routes have actually billed themselves as my backing band! Thank you! Though, I guess that doesn’t make this any different from usual.

 

Now, as you can tell from the title, the song we just played, “Routes,” is basically the theme song of the band, and I’ve sung it several times here, myself. There are CDs being sold by the entrance today, so if you’re interested, please pick one up! Also, they’re scheduled to play here at Troy again next month, so come on out for that, too!

 

All right, the next song we have for you is another of this band’s original numbers, a slightly mellower one. This is “I Want to Think of You.”

  1. I Want to Think of You

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Shinya Ishikawa

 

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

  1. Like the Fluttering Snow

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Michio Kinugasa

 

I’m worried about you, so lonely

I act tough, but I’m even lonelier

 

Sometimes I wish I could take all my memories with you

And paint them over with white, like the snow

 

My words, now quietly fluttering down and landing

Whirl up into the sky again and fall, glittering

They will never disappear from my heart

 

 

“When you’re lonely I’ll come right over to see you”

We’ve never been able to fulfill that promise

 

Sometimes I wish my memories with you

Could melt away one day with no trace, like the snow

 

Your name, now quietly fluttering down and landing

Always and forever comforts me

It will never disappear from my heart

 

In that little fluttering dream of you, the one I loved

Your words comfort me like a spell

 

I can’t forget your name, a dream that flutters down and melts

Hurting my heart like a spell

It will never disappear

  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

 

Acoustic guitar: Hideo Mitsuda

 

  1. On My Own

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Naoya Shimokawa

 

On my own I rode the swaying train

And came to our favorite beach

We would stand here, shoulder to shoulder

And listen to the sound of the waves forever

 

A wind that tastes like tears stings my heart

 

I overflow with memories as countless as the waves

But I can’t remember your smile any more

 

The slowly sinking sun

Wraps everything up in warmth

Dazzling orange light

This winter is nearing its end

 

Even the empty cans washed ashore must have a meaning

 

With a single word, I hurt the one dearest to me

I never want to love so childishly again

 

I’ll strengthen my heart, like the waves that come and go

Breathe in the wind that tastes like tears and make my way home

 

I overflow with memories as countless as the waves

But I can’t remember your smile any more

MC

Thank you. We just played “I Want to Think of You,” “Like the Fluttering Snow,” “Powder Snow,” and “On My Own.” We decided to line up a few more emotionally heavy songs for this section. Songs about tragic love, about parting from the one you love and changing as time goes by, and about the powerful feelings that still refuse to fade. When I sing songs like these, I find myself remembering a lot from earlier in my life.

 

Getting hurt, hurting others without meaning to. As you go through life, those sorts of experiences gradually increase. And, the more of those experiences accumulate, the stronger the emotions become in songs like these.

 

With all of that, I may have become just a tiiiny bit more serious now.

 

But I don’t regret becoming who I am. I’m going to keep living with this part of myself. And I am grateful to those who have stayed with me as I am.

 

To all of the staff here who allowed me to stand on this stage today, to all the band members, and to all of you who came here to see me, allow me to give you my heartfelt thanks. Thanks to all of you, I’m having the time of my life right now.

 

But, as we know, the most enjoyable times pass in the blink of an eye, and the show is now nearing its end.

 

So, I’m going to put my whole heart into singing until the very last. Now, here comes something exciting! Please enjoy these last four songs with us! “Sound of Destiny”!

 

  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. Take You With Me

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Naoya Shimokawa

 

I want to take you with me and fly on

As we watch over this planet

 

I’ll set my wish in this cloud

Some day I swear I’ll go to you

Let my feelings fly off into the sky

Clear eyes sparkling, you wait for me

 

I still remember your smell

Like a mother’s gentle warmth

 

And now, even if the whole world were lost

Even if the age of humans were through

I would take you with me and fly on

Watching over this planet

 

As long as this life goes on

I know we’ll meet again some day

When I release this infinite power

Sleeping in my heart, I’ll wait for you

 

I can feel your gaze, softly

But the moment we touch, something changes

 

Now, at the very bottom of a sleepless dream

I’ll find a new light

Swoop down into your sky

Spreading golden wings

 

And now, even if the whole world were lost

Even if the age of humans were through

I would take you with me and fly on

Watching over this star

  1. I Hope So

Lyrics: Naoko Sutani / Composition: Kazuhide Nakagami

 

The wind got cold, I bundled up

The wind stopped and we have nothing to talk about

Not that it bothers me—well, really, it does

I just stand here, stuffed into my hot coat

 

The melancholy starts, the day is far too long (yeah)

The loneliness creeps into my chilly heart

 

I hope so… I want to keep dreaming

I want to be filled with comforting warmth

I hope so… I want you to be with me

At least until the cold winter passes, please

 

The rain blew in and I shut the door

My words never reach you, swallowed by the downpour

There’s no problem—well, really, I’m out of my mind

I just distract myself with sweet candy

 

The seasons fade, our sparkling days (yeah)

Anxiety races through my thirsty heart

 

I hope so… Don’t leave me on my own

I’m dying to escape from my loneliness

I hope so… I want you to warm me up

At least until I can forget this cold winter forever, please…

Until the snow melts…

Until the sky clears

 

The melancholy starts, the day is far too long (yeah)

The loneliness creeps into my chilly heart

 

I hope so… I want to keep dreaming

I want to be filled with comforting warmth

I hope so… I want you to be with me

At least until the cold winter passes, please

MC

Thank you! You just heard “Sound of Destiny,” “Take You With Me,” and “I Hope So”!

 

Well, while I’ve been rambling on about this and that, it’s finally here: our last song! I know I’ve just sung a bunch, but to me, it feels like it all passed in the blink of an eye. So I want to thank you all for coming here today, for my first live show! I’m going to keep going at full power until the curtain falls on this show, so stick with me! This is our last number: “Deep Love.”

 

  1. Deep Love

Lyrics: Nana Mizuki / Composition: Noriyasu Agematsu (Elements Garden)

 

As snow danced in the night sky

The two of us nestled together, watching it

The warmth between our hands

Was so gentle

 

The promise that was meant to last forever

Disappears into the fleeting, faded blue between the clouds

 

Just being next to you, that alone was enough

Before I knew it I was full, with no dreams bigger than the present

 

Whenever we are, wherever we are

Just keep holding me tight

Even if the everyday seeps into our passion

My love for you will never end

I believe in it

You’ll always be the only one I see

 

The words and hours we share change their shape

The moon’s tears melt on our white cheeks

 

I keep wanting to say, “Don’t go, just a little longer”

I keep telling myself, “We’ll see each other again, won’t we?”

 

Two people suddenly dash off in different directions

And there’s no stopping them

The silence overwhelms our imagination and tears us apart

If there were one little wish I could make

It would be to tell you “I’m sorry”

 

Just thinking these thoughts won’t get them across

You have to speak them, you have to move

The secrets the two of us kept hidden

Will be forgotten if we leave them there

So… come on, hurry up and come here…

 

Just being next to you, that alone was enough

The next time we meet, will we be able to laugh together again?

 

Whenever we are, wherever we are

Just keep holding me tight

Melting in an even hotter passion

My love for you will never end

I believe in it

You’ll always be the only one I see

Thank you for the encore! Phew! If I didn’t get an encore for my first show, I don’t think I could even do a second one. All right, then, stick with me a little longer!

 

Well, since I’ve managed to get an encore, I think I’ll sing our opening number again, but with a slightly different flavor. Here’s “Love Out of Reach.”

 

  1. Love Out of Reach (Valentine Live)

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

MC

Everyone, thank you so much for being here today! Thanks to you, I’ve had an absolutely amazing time. If you’ve enjoyed this as much as I have, that’s more than enough to make me happy. Now, this really is our very last song. As I sing, I’ll be praying that I can do another show, and see all of you again. This is “The Magic of Time.” Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!

 

  1. The Magic of Time (Acoustic Version)

Lyrics: Haruki Kitahara / Composition: 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
