Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Chikai – Chikai

Leave a comment

Eiko Shimamiya, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Chikai OP

This is the theme for the second Higurashi live-action movie. It doesn’t feel as powerful as the other three openings, but I like it.

Vow
Lyrics: Eiko Shimamiya
Composition: Tomoyuki Nakazawa
Arrangement: Tomoyuki Nakazawa, Takeshi Ozaki
Vocals: Eiko Shimamiya

The rain that doesn’t stop causes a slight fever.
In the pain, I say, “No, no, not this.”
But…. I knew.
But…. it feels good.
I love my pitiful self.

The violent rain lets up, and the rainbow of the vow appears –
That when I could be reborn, you would be by my side again.
So that the needle on the clock doesn’t return to the past again,
If I strike on the wet asphalt,
Like the sound of a gunshot, this is f i n a l.

The infinite wounds invite the memories.
The pain shouts, “Never forget!”
But…. there’s a time limit.
I’m…. tired now.
I won’t pass on this sorrow to anyone.

Our clasped hands are the proof of this vow.
Believing, receiving – I felt like I knew them for the first time.
The thunder is at the end of the sky, too far away to hear.
Now, I feel only your warmth,
And if I close my eyes, this is f i n a l.

Who placed sin and punishment in humans?
There are no leaders anywhere.
We want to live only as slaves to emotion.

Because I could live at ease by blaming someone else,
I always played the victim and cried.

Like a distorted reflection, in the dream that stops moving,
Somehow, you want to inspire life.
Like eternity, this is f i n a l.

And again…

Chikai
Lyrics: Shimamiya Eiko
Composition: Nakazawa Tomoyuki
Arrangement: Nakazawa Tomoyuki, Ozaki Takeshi

Yamanai ame ga   binetsu wo haramu
Itami no naka de   “iya da   iya da   kore ja nai” tte
Demo ne…. wa   ka   t   te   ta
Demo ne…. ki   mo   chi   i   i
Watashi   kawaisou na jibun ga suki nanda

Hageshii ame wa agari   chikai no niji ga kakaru
Umarekawareta toki   kimi ga mata soba ni ite kuretara
Tokei no hari ga nido to   kako ni modoranu you ni
Nureta asufaruto ni tatakitsukereba
Juusei no you na   F i n a l

Musuu no kizu ga   omoide wo kou
Itami wa sakebu   “keshite wasurenai de ite” tte
Demo ne…. ta   i   mu   ri   mi   t   to
Mou ne… tsu   ka   re   ta   yo
Watashi   kanashimi wa dare ni mo hikiwatasanai

Nigirishimeta te to te ga   chikai no akashi dakara
Shinjiru koto   uketoru koto   hajimete shiru ki ga shita
Raimei wa sora no hate   toosugite kikoenai
Ima wa kimi no nukumori dake kanjite
Me wo tojireba   F i n a l

Dare ga   tsumi to batsu wo hito ni ataeta no?
Shihaisha wa doko ni mo inai
Kanjou no dorei de itai dake

Dareka no sei ni sureba   raku ni ikirareru kara
Watashi   itsumo higaisha dake enjite wa naite ita yo

Ranhansha shita mama de   ugokenaku naru yume ni
Douka kimi ga inochi wo fukikonde hoshii
Eien no you na   F i n a l

Soshite mata

誓い
作詞:島みやえい子
作曲:中沢伴行
編曲:中沢伴行、尾崎武士

やまない雨が 微熱を孕む
痛みの中で 「いやだ いやだ これじゃない」って
でもね・・・・ワ カ ッ テ タ
でもね・・・・キ モ チ イ イ
私 可哀想な自分が好きなんだ

激しい雨は上がり 誓いの虹がかかる
生まれ変われた時 君がまたそばにいてくれたら
時計の針が二度と 過去に戻らぬように
濡れたアスファルトに叩きつければ
銃声のような F i n a l

無数の傷が 思い出を乞う
痛みは叫ぶ 「決して忘れないでいて」って
でもね・・・・タ イ ム リ ミ ッ ト
もうね・・・・ツ カ レ タ ヨ
私 悲しみは誰にも引き渡さない!

握りしめた手と手が 誓いの証だから
信じること 受け取ること はじめて知る気がした
雷鳴は空のはて 遠すぎて聞こえない
今は君のぬくもりだけ感じて
目を閉じれば F i n a l

だれが 罪と罰を人に与えたの?
支配者はどこにもいない
感情の奴隷でいたいだけ

誰かのせいにすれば 楽に生きられるから
私 いつも被害者だけ演じては泣いていたよ

乱反射したままで 動けなくなる夢に
どうか君が命を吹き込んで欲しい
永遠のような F i n a l

そしてまた

中沢伴行
