ON/OFF, Durarara!! ED2

Butterfly
Lyrics / Composition / Arrangement: Ihashi Naruya
Vocals: ON/OFF

I wonder, do dreams exist in this era?
I’ve gotten tired of saying that catchphrase.

I was sure that I’d always been acting bad,
But lately, even that purpose is dying.

“I want to meet” –
In this city where they fit so well, phrases like that are just spinning around.
I won’t be fooled (not by those) by those things.
I do understand my own feelings.

We have freedom.
There are no dreams that won’t come true, we think as we make wishes somewhere.
Everyone feels that way.
We’re searching for ourselves. The thing we saw as we kept on running –
That is the answer.

We have freedom.
We’re searching for the light, like the butterflies do.
Let your wings shine!
Even if our hearts in the sky are caught in a strong wind and we lose our freedom,
We don’t want to feel regret.

I wonder, does love exist in this era?
I’ve gotten tired of saying that catchphrase.
The thing I always kept in my pocket –
It isn’t anger or sadness or anything like that.

The song I’m humming
Is always some tune with unclear lyrics.
Even if I trip and fall (when that happens) I won’t stop.
I do understand my own beat.

We have freedom.
There are no dreams that won’t reach, we think as we shout.
That’s how we really feel.
We’re keeping ourselves going. Even if we lose our voices sometimes,
That’s part of being human.

We have freedom.
We’re reaching for new heights, just like the butterflies do.
Let your wings flutter!
In the lonely sky,
Even if we lose sight of the maps of ourselves,
We can only go on, so we’ll just go on.
We have freedom.
There are no dreams that won’t come true, we think as we make wishes somewhere.
Everyone feels that way.
We’re searching for ourselves. The thing we saw as we kept on running –
That is the answer.

We have freedom.
We’re searching for the light, like the butterflies do.
Let your wings shine!
Even if our hearts in the sky are caught in a strong wind and we lose our freedom,
We don’t want to feel regret.

We have freedom.
We’re searching for the light.
We have freedom.
We’re reaching for new heights.

Lyrics / Composition / Arrangement: Ihashi Naruya

Konna jidai ni wa   yume ga aru no kana?
Sonna kuchiguse wa iiakita kedo

Zutto warubutte kita tsumori da kedo
Saikin sore sae mo   munashiku naru nda

“Aitai” to ka
Yoku nita machi ni karamawaru zatsuon no fureezu
Sonna mono de (sonna mono ja ne) damasarenai
Jibun no omoi nara wakatteru nda

Bokura wa jiyuu da
Kanawanu yume nante   nai to dokoka negau nda
Dare mo ga sou yatte
Jibun sagashiteru nda   hashiritsudzukete mieta mono ga
Sore ga kotae datte

Bokura wa jiyuu da
Hikari wo motomeru   tatoeba chou no you
Hane kagayakase
Kokoro wa oozora   tsuyoi kaze de jiyuu ushinatte mo
Koukai wa shitaku nai

Konna jidai ni mo   ai wa aru no kana?
Sonna kuchiguse wa iiakita kedo
Zutto poketto ni tsumekonde kita mono
Sore wa ikari to ka kanashimi ja nai nda

Kuchizusamu uta wa
Itsumo aimai na kashi no TUNE
Tsumadzuite mo (sonna koto ja ne) yame wa shinai
Jibun no kodou nara wakatteru nda

Bokura wa jiyuu da
Todokanu yume nante   nai to sakenderu nda
Hontou wa sou yatte
Jibun furuwaseru nda   toki ni koe karashite shimau no mo
Sore mo hito datte

Bokura wa jiyuu da
Takami wo motomeru   tatoeba chou no you
Hane hatamekase
Kodoku na oozora
Jibun no chizu wo miushinatte mo
Ikeru dake yuku dake
Bokura wa jiyuu da
Kanawanu yume nante   nai to dokoka negau nda
Dare mo ga sou yatte
Jibun sagashiteru nda   hashiritsudzukete mieta mono ga
Sore ga kotae datte

Bokura wa jiyuu da
Hikari wo motomeru   tatoeba chou no you
Hane kagayakase
Kokoro wa oozora   tsuyoi kaze de jiyuu ushinatte mo
Koukai wa shitaku nai

(Bokura wa jiyuu da
Hikari wo motomeru
Bokura wa jiyuu da
Takami wo motomeru)

こんな時代には 夢があるのかな?
そんな口グセは言い飽きたけど

ずっと悪ぶってきたつもりだけど
最近それさえも 虚しくなるんだ

「会いたい」とか
良く似た街に空回る雑音のフレーズ
そんなもので(そんなものじゃね)騙されない
自分の想いなら判ってるんだ

僕らは自由だ
叶わぬ夢なんて 無いと何処か願うんだ
誰もがそうやって
自分探してるんだ 走り続けて見えたものが
それが答えだって

僕らは自由だ
光を求める 例えば蝶のよう
羽根輝かせ
心は大空 強い風で自由失っても
後悔はしたくない

こんな時代にも 愛はあるのかな?
そんな口グセは言い飽きたけど
ずっとポケットに詰め込んできたもの
それは怒りとか悲しみじゃないんだ

口ずさむ歌は
いつも曖昧な歌詞の TUNE
つまづいても(そんなことじゃね)やめはしない
自分の鼓動なら判ってるんだ

僕らは自由だ
届かぬ夢なんて 無いと叫んでるんだ
本当はそうやって
自分奮わせるんだ 時に声枯らしてしまうのも
それも人だって

僕らは自由だ
高みを求める 例えば蝶のよう
羽根はためかせ
孤独な大空
自分の地図を見失っても
行けるだけいくだけ
僕らは自由だ
叶わぬ夢なんて 無いと何処か願うんだ
誰もがそうやって
自分探してるんだ 走り続けて見えたものが
それが答えだって

僕らは自由だ
光を求める 例えば蝶のよう
羽根輝かせ
心は大空 強い風で自由失っても
後悔はしたくない
