Nor does it speak.

la la larks – Q And A

la la larks, c/w Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan ED Hallelujah

Q And A
Lyrics/ Composition / Arrangement: la la larks

Endlessly, I continue on.
Never knowing where I’m going to arrive,
The question marks are always in control of my mind.

Sadness, happiness – which one is more abundant?
It’s the presence or lack of talent, the conclusion of hard work.

Comparing to others, swinging between joy and fear,
Affirmation and denial, repeating again,
Mixing in my hopes, assigning points,
I’m trying to find out my own value.

la la larks – Hallelujah

la la larks, Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan ending theme

Hallelujah
Lyrics / Composition / Arrangement: la la larks

More uncertain than the whims of fortune,
And yet I’m powerfully attracted – this feeling has no name.
Just when I’d accepted things and ceased to struggle,
I came to terms with the contradictions, the riddles, the absurdity, everything.

If I’m with you, I can protect tomorrow.

GANGSTA. – Yoru no Kuni (TV-size lyrics)

Annabel (produced by STERO DIVE FOUNDATION), GANGSTA. ending theme

This translation was done by ear [= 耳コピ], so there may end up being errors in the transcription, which may affect the TL. I’ll make sure to update once the full official lyrics are out.

Country of Night
Lyrics: Annabel
Composition / Arrangement: R・O・N
Produced by STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION
Vocals: Annabel

In the forgotten ash-covered city,
I was looking for what I’d lost.
Even if you, with your red eyes, offered a prayer in your little voice,
My ears were covered.

Rather than extending a hand, let’s hide away.

Pointing at the broken sky,
We laugh together, with childish eyes.
Let’s bathe in the light that peeks out
From the gap in the night, and sleep right here,
Together, you and me.
Ah…

Yoru no Kuni
Lyrics: Annabel
Composition / Arrangement: R・O・N
Produced by STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION
Vocals: Annabel

Boku wa wasurerareta hai tsumoru machi de
Nakushimono wo sagashiteta
Akai me wo shita kimi ga chiisa na koe de inotte mo
Mimi wo fusaideta

Te wo nobasu yori kakurete shimaou

Wareta sora wo yubisashi
Kodomo no me de waraiau
Yoru no sukima kara nozoku hikari wo
Abite koko de nemurou
Kimi to futari de
Aa

夜の国
作詞:Annabel
作曲・編曲:R・O・N
Produced by STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION
歌:Annabel

僕は忘れられた灰積もる街で
失くし物を探してた
赤い目をした君が小さな声で祈っても
耳を塞いでた

手を伸ばすより隠れてしまおう

割れた空を指さし
子供の目で笑い合う
夜の隙間から覗く光を
浴びてここで眠ろう
君と二人で
あぁ

STUDIO TRAM – Moe Jazz Dreamer

STUDIO TRAM, Moe Jazz

One of the seven great mysteries of the anime internet. May or may not have been popularized by a certain Youtuber.

Moé Jazz Dreamer

Ah, hey, isn’t this totally amazing?
When all’s said and done, the future’s still undecided.
This isn’t anime, all is never lost.
The flag isn’t raised? Right now, I’m head over heels for you.
Been in love since the day we first met,
But let’s take it easy, this is jazz, after all.
Failure is as common as your everyday meals.
What’ll it be today? The A Lunch?

In any place, to any any place,
It will continue on, this melo-melody here.
Forever on, forever-ever on,
I want to play jazz, too!
One, two, one two three go!

Libra feat. Megurine Luka – calling

Libra feat. Megurine Luka, Vocaloid original song


Original NicoNico upload: http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm20720934

Just beautiful. It’s been a while since Libra has been active on the internet; I wonder if he’s moved onto other things. A bit sad – I kind of wish I was close enough at the time, since his songs have stayed close to my heart, but it’s hard for someone like me who finds it difficult to communicate across the pond.

calling
Music & Lyrics: Libra
Vocals: Megurine Luka

In all-too-ordinary freedom, with insufficient words and unclear tomorrows,
I’ll never be able to go beyond
Worthless imagination.

What’s the hurry?
I increase my speed;
The distorted daily life whirls around,
But there’s still something not quite right.

Left off as an unreachable dream, unfading distant memories.
The back of the person who tried so hard, never hesitating…
I wonder if I can catch up one more time.
