MAMI KAWADA, To Aru Majutsu no Index insert song (episode 23), masterpiece

When masterpiece came out, I didn’t like this song much, but it’s grown on me. Also, for the life of me, I can’t figure out what she’s singing at the part that isn’t in the booklet, if they’re words at all.

Vocals:MAMI KAWADA
Lyrics:MAMI KAWADA
Music:TOMOYUKI NAKAZAWA
Arrangement:TOMOYUKI NAKAZAWA & TAKESHI OZAKI

A shadow wanders in the depths of the ocean –
Fear, hesitation, and jealousy.
I softly opened the umbrella
Over the jellyfish that hides its heart.

Groping about, chasing after a dream
Without knowing where to go,
I lose sight of even the sky and earth
And go where the path of light shines.

I wanted to be loved,
But I was afraid to love,
So beloved,
Or so you want to believe.

If the truth
Becomes unclear,
I would know nothing
And go where even the light does not reach.

I want to meet.
I want to believe.
I want to touch it.

Lyrics: Kawada Mami
Music: Nakazawa Tomoyuki
Arrangement: Nakazawa Tomoyuki & Ozaki Takeshi

Shinkai wo samayou kage
Kyoufu to mayoi to saigishin
Sotto kasa wo hirogeta
Kokoro kakushiteru jellyfish

Tesaguri de ou yume
Yukue sura shiranu mama
Ten to chi mo miushinai
Hikari no michi sasu hou e

Aisaretai to negai
Aisuru koto osoreta
Konna ni mo itooshii no ni
Kimi wa shinjitetai

Shinjitsu ga aimai ni
Kawatte shimau kurai nara
Nani ni mo shiru koto nai
Hikari mo todokanu hou e

I want to meet.
I want to believe.
I want to touch it.

歌:川田まみ
Lyrics:川田まみ
Music:中沢伴行
Arrangement:中沢伴行&尾崎武士

深海を彷徨う影
恐怖と迷いと猜疑心
そっと傘を広げた
心隠してるjellyfish

手探りで追う夢
行方すら知らぬまま
天と地も見失い
光の道差す方へ

愛されたいと願い
愛する事恐れた
こんなにも愛おしいのに
君は信じてたい

真実が曖昧に
変わってしまうくらいなら
何にも知る事ない
光も届かぬ方へ

I want to meet.
I want to believe.
I want to touch it.

  3. Seriously at first I thought the lyrics was about Touma , index or maybe even mikoto, but suddenly :-

    ”Without knowing where to go,
    I lose sight of even the sky and earth
    And go where the path of light shines.

    I wanted to be loved,
    But I was afraid to love,
    So beloved,
    Or so you want to believe.

    If the truth
    Becomes unclear,
    I would know nothing
    And go where even the light does not reach.

    I want to meet.
    I want to believe.
    I want to touch it.
    I…”

    It seriously made me think of Accelerator especially this part :-

    ”I wanted to be loved,
    But I was afraid to love,
    So beloved,
    Or so you want to believe.”
