Mio Sakamoto (Saeko Chiba), STRIKE WITCHES Himeuta Collection 1

falcon eyes
Lyrics: Natsumi Tadano
Composition / Arrangement: Yukari Hashimoto
Vocals: Mio Sakamoto (Saeko Chiba)

The end of the transparent sky continues into the distance.
I choose freedom; I can see tomorrow.

I closed my eyes sadly in a storm of tears and sand.
Become strong; sharpen your skill; wings, you can cut through the darkness and fly.

I’ve heard the legend that on the other side of the harbor,
There is a single flower of pearl.
I want to show it to you without folding it.

The mountains are linked together and become a group of curves.
The scenery without solitude brings all of my emotions to the surface – it’s beautiful…

“After that, then after that, I wonder if we’ll be able to see anything.
Maybe I can’t read the truth yet,
But I believe that I can pass through the things that stand in my way
And struggle on to the other side.
When that time comes, even if I’m not there…
I’ll be like the supple bamboo.”

In order to release the things that even I keep bound,
I must look after myself and go through, more than anyone does.

With the song that sounds in the deceptive wind, I lose the feeling of distance.
The things I can merely see are not an answer – I’ll continue to believe.
If the blue of the sky is painted over, I’ll lose my sense of direction.
Even then, it’ll be amazingly fun – I laugh from the heart.

The wingbeats of the birds become a group of blessings.
There was nothing to fear.
The answer always lies within myself.

The end of the transparent sky continues into the distance.
I choose freedom; I can see tomorrow.

falcon eyes (Taka no Me)
Lyrics: Tadano Natsumi
Composition / Arrangement: Hashimoto Yukari
Vocals: Sakamoto Mio (Chiba Saeko)

Haruka tooku tsudzuiteru  toumei na sora no hate
Jiyuu wo erabitoru, ashita ga mieru

Kanshimi ni me wo tojita.. namida to suna no arashi
Tsuyoku nare  togisumase  tsubasa, kurayami wo kitte  toberu

Densetsu wo kiita  ganpeki no mukou
Shinju no hana, ichirin
Taori nado sezu ni  anata ni mo  misetai to negau

Yamanami wa musubarete  kyokusen no mure ni naru
Hitori de wa nai fuukei wa  kidoairaku sae ukaberu  utsukushii

“Sono saki  mata sono saki e to, nani ga mieru no darou
Watashi ni shinjitsu wa  mada yomete inai no kamo shirenai
Keredo, saegiru mono o kugurinukete
Tadoritsukeru to shinjite iru
Sono toki  watashi wa soko ni inakatta toshite mo..
Shinayaka na take no you ni”

Jibun sae  shibaru mono wo  tokihanashite iku tame ni
Dare yori mo  mizukara wo  mitsume, tsuranuite ikanakereba

Usotsuki no kaze ga  fukinarasu uta de  kyorikan wo ushinau
Mieru mono dake ga  kotae ja nai  shinjitsudzukeyou
Aoi sora no iro  nurikomeraretara  hougaku wo ushinau
Sore de sae sugoku  tanoshikute   kokoro kara warau

Toritachi no habataki wa  shukufuku no mure to naru
Kowai mono nante nakatta
Itsudemo kotae wa, jibun no naka ni aru

Haruka tooku tsudzuiteru  toumei na sora no hate
Jiyuu wo erabitoru, ashita ga mieru

falcon eyes (たかのめ)
作詩:只野菜摘
作曲・編曲:橋本由香利
歌:坂本美緒(千葉紗子)

遥か遠く続いてる 透明な空の果て
自由をえらび獲る、明日がみえる

哀しみに眼をとじた・・涙と砂の嵐
強くなれ 研ぎすませ 翼、暗闇を切って 翔べる

伝説をきいた 岸壁のむこう
真珠の花、一輪
手折りなどせずに あなたにも 見せたいと願う

山並みは結ばれて 曲線の群れになる
ひとりではない風景は 喜怒哀楽さえ浮かべる 美しい

「その先 またその先へと、何がみえるのだろう
私に真実は まだ読めていないのかもしれない
けれど、さえぎるものをくぐりぬけて
たどりつけると信じている
そのtき 私はそこにいなかったとしても・・
しにゃかな竹のように」

自分さえ しばるものを ときはなしていくために
誰よりも みずからを みつめ、貫いていかなければ

嘘つきの風が 吹き鳴らす歌で 距離感を失う
みえるものだけが 答えじゃない 信じ続けよう
青い空の色 塗りこめられたら 方角を失う
それでさえすごく 楽しくて  こころから笑う

鳥たちのはばたきは 祝福の群れとなる
こわいものなんてなかった
いつでも答えは、自分の中にある

遥か遠く続いてる 透明な空の果て
自由をえらび獲る、明日がみえる
