KOKIA – Umaretate no Shiro

Leave a comment

KOKIA, c/w Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino- OP Tatta Hitotsu no Omoi

Merry Christmas. I felt that it would be fitting to post a song about snow, if not Christmas itself, even if it is a sad one.

Newborn Whiteness
Lyrics / Composition: KOKIA
Arrangement: Yamamoto Yasuhisa
Vocals: KOKIA

For how much longer will you fall, newborn whiteness?
People turn on the lights and sit tight, waiting for a morning when the other world overflows with light.
Tra ra ra ra, the snow whirls up in the air.
Tra ra ra ra, it seems like a dream.
The snow that shrouds all lets me forget everything.

In the hand I extended to try and catch it, it disappears, fleeting.
Tomorrow, my body will change. I want to sear this single moment of radiance into my eyes.
Tra ra ra ra, the snow whirls up in the air.
Tra ra ra ra, it seems like a dream.
The white world that continues everywhere seems to continue to the sky.

Stars rain down in the moonlit night. Time stops.
My surroundings envelop me silently.
snow dome dream

Tra ra ra ra, the snow whirls up in the air.
Tra ra ra ra, it seems like a dream.

I feel like I’ll lose sight of myself in the speed that changes moment by moment.

Umaretate no Shiro
Lyrics / Composition: KOKIA
Arrangement: Yamamoto Yasuhisa

Ato dore kurai toki wa furitsumoru no   umaretate no shiro yo
Hitobito wa akaritomoshite jitto   betsu sekai ga hikari ni afureru asa wo matteru
Tra ra ra ra   maiagaru yuki
Tra ra ra ra   yume no you ni
Nani mo kamo ooitsukusu yuki ga   subete wo wasuresaseru no

Tsukamou to hirogeta te no naka de   kiete yuku hakanasa
Ashita ni wa sugata kaete shimau   isshun no kirameki kono me ni   yakitsukete itai
Tra ra ra ra   maiagaru yuki
Tra ra ra ra   yume no you ni
Dokomade mo tsudzuku shiroi sekai wa   sora e to tsudzuite iru you

Hoshi furu tsukiyo ni   toki ga tomaru
Atari wa seijaku ni tsutsumarete yuku
snow dome dream

Tra ra ra ra   maiagaru yuki
Tra ra ra ra   yume no you ni

Kokukoku to utsuriyuku hayasa ni   jibun wo miushinaisou

生まれたての白
作詞・作曲:KOKIA
編曲:山本恭久

あとどれくらい時間は降り積もるの 生まれたての白よ
人々は明かり灯してじっと 別世界が光に溢れる朝を待ってる
Tra ra ra ra 舞い上がる雪
Tra ra ra ra 夢のように
何もかも覆い尽くす雪が 全てを忘れさせるの

掴もうと広げた手の中で 消えてゆく儚さ
明日には姿変えてしまう 一瞬の煌きこの瞳に 焼き付けていきたい
Tra ra ra ra 舞い上がる雪
Tra ra ra ra 夢のように
どこまでも続く白い世界は 空へと続いているよう

星降る月夜に 時間が止まる
辺りは静寂に包まれてゆく
snow dome dream

Tra ra ra ra 舞い上がる雪
Tra ra ra ra 夢のように

刻々と移りゆく早さに 自分を見失いそう
