A Song for XX Era:
Past me: A Song for XX
You will someday be betrayed by your trust in people.
I thought it was the same as being rejected.
At the time I didn’t have that kind of strength.
I definitely knew too much.
They always said I was a strong child.
They praised me, saying “you must be strong not to cry.”
The more people said things like that,
the more even laughing became agony.
Present me: SIGNAL
I’ve decided to zoom off when the next light turns green.
It turns yellow, and stops at red. Am I ready for this?
I’m tired of hearing the noise around me.
Even if only one person understands, it’s ok.
Let’s eat all the things we like, leaving none behind,
and throw away the things we hate.
Past me: Fly high
I’m afraid. The steps I can’t take
pile up, and turn into a long, long
path untravelled; I’m too late.
During that time, I started thinking that
somehow maybe even this place isn’t so bad.
I kept giving myself reasons.
Present me: Boys & Girls
What on earth do you want?
What on earth is missing?
And where on earth are you headed?
Even if someone asks me questions like that
I wouldn’t have the answers
But the moment you push me forward, don’t forget
That we promised this would finally be the summer
Past me: End of the World
What should I think?
What should I say?
You’re probably the
first person who has
tried to understand me.
Present me: SURREAL
No matter how lonely you are
No matter how much pain you receive
You can’t shut off your feelings
Even if you’re lost for words
No matter how much you say you don’t care
If you stumble in the road, you’ll hold out your hands to break your fall
That’s the way it is.
I am… Era:
Past me: I am…
I want you to stare into my eyes and call my name
I want you to hold my hand and nod and say it’s OK
Push me, I don’t think I’ll be able to keep walking if you don’t
If this is a lie, at least keep up the lie until the end.
Present me: Daybreak
No matter how far apart we are,
we’re still under the same sky.
Don’t forget that we’re both
travelling to the place
we once dreamed of.
Past me: Heartplace
In this place
Where I feel stress even when breathing
I’ve come to be able to smile
Even when I feel no fun
I wonder if I have changed
Present me: Voyage
At the end of this long path, what will we think?
Everyone is a traveler, wandering about in search of love.
Let’s go together until we tire of it.
Memorial Address Era:
Past me: No way to say
Little by little, I’ve come to realize
That my past never heals
And that it’s no use
Fearing the future I can’t refuse.
Present me: Ourselves
Choosing where I want to end up
There are so many options
That I have no idea which one to choose
But a row of profiles
All walking towards the same future
Is more real than anything else
Because in the end
The only thing that has any meaning
Has to be love.
MY STORY Era:
Past me: GAME
This time tomorrow I’ll be able to smile properly
Yeah, like nothing’s happened
I’ve always done that
But I can’t play this game, yeah, the way I thought.
Present me: INSPIRE
Yeah, I’ll get up time and time again
I’ve got to break down the walls
Not yet, it doesn’t start here
As long as this path continues, I’ve got to open the doors.
Yeah, people can’t live alone
Such a normal concept
Yeah, we can’t live without love
I’m realising that keenly now.
Past me: alterna
If you’re afraid of change
Watch me from a distance
If what I did do and didn’t do
Are the same, be honest.
It’s not such an outrageous thing
Don’t think too hard about it
I just mean that all I want now
Are the things I really want
Present me: Beautiful Day
The reason we’re afraid of tomorrow
Is because we can’t help being afraid of what we haven’t yet seen
But if tomorrow came with us already knowing what would happen
That’d be really boring
Don’t you think?
Past me: until that Day…
Hey, the reason of this smile and the meaning of this word can’t be understood
Because I don’t even want to make them understood
It can’t be helped
Indeed, no one knows about real me
More than you.
Present me: Secret
Even if I get tired of flying
I don’t have the courage to lower my wings
If I could have one wish come true
Take me away from here.
Past me: talkin’ 2 myself
The reality always makes us run for nothing
But look ! Your own answer is hiding in it
If you have an unsatisfied feeling
That’s what you made by your hands.
Present me: decision
The road I chose when I was young
Was that of no turning back
That was the first and the last resolution
The future was yelling in the distance.
You see? My past self of that day
You see? Is nodding behind me.
NEXT LEVEL Era:
Past me: NEXT LEVEL
When we feel the wind, let’s clench our hands tightly
Because we don’t need many words any more
When we feel the wind, let’s make a strong step
Let’s go with the same speed, looking at the same scenery.
Present me: Rule
I don’t want to be imposed on
By the same old stupid Rules
Let’s start first, you and me
By breaking the Rules.
Rock’n’Roll Circus Era:
Past me: Don’t look back
I want to go forward, and I don’t want to do so
Hesitating like this means that I don’t hesitate any more
If I stayed here, I suppose it might be easier
But nothing would make me burn with excitement.
Present me: Microphone
But I won’t hesitate anymore, and I won’t regret it
Meeting you was fate
Because you’re always
The one who teaches me what it means to be me
Who gives meaning to my existence.
Love songs Era:
Past me: crossroad
I had the feeling
That the profile of someone I passed by now
Looked like that of the girl
I had known before
But why was I just staring at her back
As she walked away
Without even being able to
Call to her?
Present me: Love song
A life without love?
I’m not confident I could live like that
A life without dreams?
I don’t want to imagine it
A life without song?
I can’t even guess what that would be like
Without uncompromisable thoughts
life would be meaningless and boring.
Past me: BRILLANTE
After I couldn’t see anything
I could see everything
The road ahead is too narrow
So I can’t walk with you anymore…
Present me: progress
If we know the same pain, bring along the same tenderness
And can change them into the strength to live on tomorrow, surely…
Party Queen Era:
Past me: the next LOVE
Loving the person I am, when did I last do that?
Coming to hate the person I am, have I become an adult?
Present me: Shake it
Innocently making easy things look tough
I admire such a charming talent, but
Easily meeting unexpected difficulties
That kind of charm is what I really love.
