Theme of Love
Trouble with the audio sample?
Cecil of the Red Wings is many things, but he is not a coward. Not the Cecil who I love.
—Rosa

Japanese Kana/RomajiEdit

空の果てに 心を飛ばすのは
あなたのすぐそばに
誰もいないから
雨の音に 耳を澄ましながら
閉じ込めた言葉は
埋もれてしまう
虚空を見つめる 虚ろな瞳は
心を映しはしない
あなたを待ってる 私がいることに
早く 気付いて
いつかきっと 閉ざされた扉を
あなたが開くでしょう
戸惑いながら
思い出の箱に 鍵をかけた時
何かが砕けて散った
呼び掛ける声も 愛した歌さえも
今は届かない
いつかきっと 闇に沈む船を
あなたが導いて
光の中へ
Sora no hate ni
Kokoro o tobasu no wa
Anata no sugu soba ni
Dare mo inai kara
Ame no oto ni
Mimi o sumashi nagara
Tojikometa kotoba wa
Umorete shimau
Kokuu o mitsumeru
Utsuro na hitomi wa
Kokoro o utushi wa shinai
Anata o matteru
Watashi ga iru koto ni
Hayaku kizuite
Itsuka kitto
Tozasareta tobira o
Anata ga hiraku deshou
Tomadoi nagara
Omoide no hako ni
Kagi o kaketa toki
Nanika ga kudakete chitta
Yobikakeru koe mo
Aishita uta sae mo
Ima wa todokanai
Itsuka kitto
Yami ni shizumu fune o
Anata ga michibiite
Hikari no naka e

English translationEdit

You let your heart fly
To the limits of the sky
Because you have no one
By your side.
As I strain my ears
In the sound of the rain,
Words, kept inside,
Are buried.
Staring at the empty skies,
These glassy eyes
Won't reflect my heart.
I'm waiting for you;
Please--
Notice me soon.
One day, surely,
You'll open the doors
That had been locked,
Though I'm at a loss.
When I locked
The box of memories,
Something broke and scattered.
The voices that call out,
Even the songs you loved--
They don't reach you now.
One day, surely,
You'll lead the boat
That's sinking into the darkness
Into the light.

Japanese LyricsEdit

君の名前 心でつぶやいた
Kimi no namae kokoro de tsubuyaita
この僕の想いは そこに届かないのに
Kono boku no omoi wa soko ni todokanai no ni
今は遠い 愛しい面影が
Ima wa tooi itoshii omokage ga
この夜空に浮かぶ 瞳閉じても
Kono yozora ni ukabu hitomi tojite mo
ともに笑えてた 穏やかな日々が
Tomo ni waraeteta odayaka na hibi ga
心に 今も暖かく
Kokoro ni ima mo atatakaku
月の明り 青い夜に光る
Tsuki no akari aoi yoru ni hikaru
あの日々の輝き 照らし出すよに
Ano hibi no kagayaki terashidasu yo ni
君の涙 ぬぐうこともできず
Kimi no namida nuguu koto mo dekizu
この僕の両手は ここで震えてるだけ
Kono boku no ryoute wa koko de furueteru dake
今は一人 終わりのない旅路
Ima wa hitori owari no nai tabiji
疲れたこの足で さまようばかり
Tsukareta kono ashi de samayou bakari
ともに過ごした日 触れた温もりが
Tomo ni sugoshita hi fureta nukumori ga
この手に 今も暖かく
Kono te ni ima mo atatakaku
月の明り ただ静かに照らす
Tsuki no akari tada shizuka ni terasu
錆びついたこの胸 かき乱すよに
Sabi tsuita kono mune kaki midasu yo ni
月の明り 青い夜に光る
Tsuki no akari aoi yoru ni hikaru
あの日々の輝き 照らし出すよに
Ano hibi no kagayaki terashidasu yo ni

English TranslationEdit

Murmured in the name "heart"
In my desire to get there
Now distant beloved holds.
Close your eyes, floating in the sky above
Laugh together, a gentle
Yet warm heart
Night in the moon's blue light shines
In those days, shine
You cannot wipe away your tears.
My hands were shaking alone here
Currently one endless journey
Only, this tired, I wander on foot
Spent the warm touch of both days
This hand is now warm
Quietly shining only in light of the Moon
Rusty on my chest, so disturbing
Night in the blue light of the moon shines
In those days, shine
