It’s time to decide
Don’t be afraid
This moment will never come again
Prepare yourself
Shall we step forward?
Don’t you feel like we could go anywhere?

When you’re lost within your dreams (OK! I’m in your side)
I’ll guide you (OK! trust your friend)
Even if tears fall (OK! I’m in your side)
I’ll continue along with you (OK! trust your friend)

Now it’s time to head for your dream
So Come on get up!!
Not withering until you’ve fully bloomed
Donot you realize too late
Happiness that around you now

Allowing those who want to laugh to laugh

Now it’s time to head for your dream
So Come on get up!!
You can’t give up until this giant flower blooms

Donot you realize too late
Happiness that around you now

Because nothing is impossible in this world

Now is Only for now
Unafraid
Crossing all of the barriers
Now continuing
On the path that I believe in
Even if you cry after because it’s slow

Even if you fall  (OK! I’m in your side)
If you stand back up, it’ll be alright (OK! trust your friend)
Even if you return to zero (OK! I’m in your side)
You can start again (OK! trust your friend)

Now it’s time to head for your dream
So Come on get up!!
Not withering until you’ve fully bloomed
Donot you realize too late
Happiness that around you now

Allowing those who want to laugh to laugh

Now it’s time to head for your dream
So Come on get up!!
You can’t give up until this giant flower blooms
Donot you realize too late
Happiness that around you now

Because nothing is impossible in this world

Now it’s time to head for your dream
So Come on get up!!
Not withering until you’ve fully bloomed

Donot you realize too late
Happiness that around you now

Allowing those who want to laugh to laugh

ANSWER

I believed that we could hold each other
Though I believed that I could be beside you
During that time, my eyes opened suddenly
Your warmth is gone

Hey, am I getting through to you?  I loved you.
Now, my voice rings out in vain
Without facing each other, I closed the door to my heart
You let me do the impossible

“Someone give me an answer”
My broken heart is screaming
This pain that cannot be erased with tears
What can I do to make it go away?

“I just want you to smile next to me, forever, no matter when, because I’ll be closer to you than anyone else.”

You always gently
Pressed your voice across my back
Don’t be afraid, it’s best to be upfront
You allowed me to realize this

You saw only me
I’m still looking for your shadow
If I lock tomorrow away in my thoughts
Will I be able to walk forward, I wonder?

Our thoughts are of a far-off sofa, dyed red
It’s stupid, but no matter how many times I watch the scene from the movie, it’s sad
Why do I remember it?  Where are you, and what are you doing, I wonder?

I really wanted to fawn on you more
I wanted to be honest
This importance that I did not understand until it was gone
Will never be forgotten

No one will give me an answer
I have to find it myself
Tomorrow, I will start again from this place
Someday

If we are able to meet again
From you
I will open the lock

Say good bye to nothingness I’ll never forget your kindness
I always wish you happiness
Forever

Say good bye to nothingness I’ll never forget your kindness
I always wish you happiness
Forever

EVER

In the memory of a Spring landscape of falling cherry blossom petals, you were left behind

The snow on the lane is melting,  the seasons pile up on your back
The night last summer where you taught me about love

Spring breeze, around the time that I had that dream, I misplaced my feelings along with my tears
“If I am able to meet you again someday…”
Making a meaningless pinky-swear

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to you
You taught me important feelings

The memories that I’ve put away in this album, and your smile
Just holding you and sleeping… Holding you and sleeping

The precious words you gave to me on the day I set off
One page of memories from the day I could see the blurred sunlight filtering through the trees

Spring breeze, around the time that I had that dream, I misplaced my feelings along with my tears
“If I am able to meet you again someday…”
Making a meaningless pinky-swear

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to you
You taught me important feelings

The memories that I’ve put away in this album, and your smile
Just holding you and sleeping… Holding you and sleeping

I loved you
You from my memories

To you whom I loved, to you whom I love
I know that I’ll never be able to see you again, but

The memories that I’ve put away in this album, and your smile
Just holding you and sleeping… Holding you and sleeping

FAKE

It was just the last kindness that you, a liar, gave me but
It saved me
I wonder what you’re thinking, what you’re feeling now
No matter how much I scream, it doesn’t reach you

Making a calm face, pretending you don’t know
Do you think I haven’t realized?
The false rhythm rings out in vain
I do not want to see tomorrow this way

Until now it was always, from now it will always be
Should I smile with this pitiable woman?
Whenever we kiss, there’s a taste that I do not know
Are you getting fed up with pretending not to look?

Contrary to my dried-out heart
The flower petals are somehow wet
Do not underestimate such simplicity
However…  You are dear to me

It was just the last kindness that you, a liar, gave me but
It saved me
I wonder what you’re thinking, what you’re feeling now
No matter how much I scream, it doesn’t reach you

Your scent is left being in vain
No matter how many times I wash it off…
In the end, I tried to break you
Don’t make fun of my “I love you”

If you say that there is no such thing as unending rain
Then will these tears also stop sometime?
Even though it seems I’ve sworn to never return
Why do I still hope?

You, who bluffed courage, showed me your final weakness from the start
It still wrenches my heart
Why  did you tell me “Don’t go” at that time?
No matter how many times I scream, it won’t reach you

Do not underestimate such simplicity
However…  You are dear to me

It was just the last kindness that you, a liar, gave me but
It saved me
I wonder what you’re thinking, what you’re feeling now
No matter how much I scream…

You, who bluffed courage, showed me your final weakness from the start
It still wrenches my heart
Why  did you tell me “Don’t go” at that time?
No matter how many times I scream, it won’t reach you

“Fragments”

Artist: ViViD
Lyrics: Shin
Album: INFINITY
Translator:  Obscured Moon

Love scattered into countless pieces
Everyone is looking for somewhere to belong
Laughing, crying, lost
In these hands, it’s still set to zero

Continuing the dream that I saw at some point, where is the day when we took each others’ hands?
The “Fragments” I was searching for
Stitching one by one, the picture that I could see in full at first
What am I thinking?

Countless ideals on this groping street
I scream from not understanding
Feelings that cannot reach you are blown away by the wind
This way, no matter where I am, I wish for you…

The sadness that traced my cheek
Two or three discarded prides
Looking up a little bit
Should I try changing tomorrow?

Continuing the dream that I saw at some point, the halted days of youth
“It’s calm, hey are we facing forward?”
Stitching one by one, the picture that I could see in full at the end
To give it a smile

What is strength?  And what is weakness?
I run in search for answers
Someday coming upon it by chance, even though it’s a bit distant
Because I am no longer afraid of getting hurt

Countless ideals on this groping street
I scream from not understanding
Feelings that cannot reach you are blown away by the wind
This way, no matter where I am, I wish for you…

Just hearing your voice does not satisfy me
The words arranged by my fingertips do not convey anything
I dislike the nights where I sleep alone
There are times where it seems like I’ll abandon it all

one day
It’s been a long time since we’ve passed by each other by on the phone
one day
I fought with you over something trivial
Continuously
Because if this kind of thing keeps repeating itself, it will fail
More
To be honest?  If that’s the case, I’ll be closer to you

Daring Daring
Can you hear me?
I want you to hold me right now
Continuously, continuously
same feeling
I’m expecting you
Trust you
Whispered softly in the night’s wind…

Even though I’m smiling, I’m lonely
My unbalanced heart searches for you…
No matter where I am, no matter what I do
The pain of not being able to see you just grows

one day
Standing by the window, a single tear was shed
one day
I cannot express simple things, I wonder why?
Continuously
Because this remaining distance that cannot be filled is frustratingly slow
More
I’ll be honest, If that’s the case, I’ll be closer to you

Daring Daring
Can you hear me?
Come get me now
Do it anytime
same feeling
I miss you
Trust you
I’m nearly helpless, I like you

Daring Daring
Can you hear me?
I want you to hold me right now
Continuously, continuously
same feeling
I’m expecting you
Trust you
Whispered softly in the night’s wind…

**AN:  Just for the record, I think that when they say “Daring” in this song, they probably mean “Darling.”

BLUE

Lyrics: Shin

In that place where I drifted to, I wonder what people are thinking
In order to not sink within this wide-spread, deep destiny

I might lose it all tomorrow
In this irreplaceable now, I won’t turn my back on you
I keep yelling so that somehow this voice will reach you

Each time I give chase, you become farther away, in this fleeting moment you become close
Even though I cannot see the transparent future, I continue to reach my hand out towards it

With the days that I spent smiling while I cried, at the ends of this transmigration, I reach my hand out

In that place where I drifted to, I wonder what people are thinking
In order to not sink within this wide-spread, deep destiny

I bask in this twisted, winding light while I drift and sway
I gather up the shattered pieces of myself and fly away

At the ends of this evolving vision, I wonder what on Earth I’m going to discover
I keep yelling so that somehow this voice will reach you

With the days that I spent smiling while I cried, I reach out towards this spiraling blue

I change this darkness into wings, gently, gently floating…
I continue walking…  Seeking the light that will let me see what’s ahead

Even so, no matter what kind of future it is, it’s a one-time journey
I continue walking…  Seeking the light that will let me see what’s ahead

I bask in this twisted, winding light while I drift and sway
I gather up the shattered pieces of myself and fly away
