RSP, Dice

Requested by Joao.

In the Corner of This City
Lyrics: AKIRA
Composition: AKIRA
Arrangement: Daisuke “D.I” Imai
Vocals: RSP

Feeling like I got stronger all by myself, thinking, “I hate him,”
Seeing all the people coming and going as imposters, wandering in search of my dreams,
I walked recklessly between the buildings, and I caught a glimpse of the tears of the grey sky.
Inside my scarf, I heave a sigh of loneliness – I can’t hide the gap between ideal and reality.

Always unsatisfied somehow, I’ve kept on wishing without waiting.
I start running and then stand still in these repeating days.
I can’t see the exit, and I don’t even know if this path is right,
But someday, this sky should clear up,

So in the corner of this city, I’m here singing.
The tears I’ve shed will surely turn into strength.
The subway and the park, the buildings and the trees, the scenery I’ve grown used to seeing –
With feelings of connection, I’ll be able to see them differently.

I move forward step by step every day, living only for the moment, always passive,
Wearing a fake smile even with the friends who have the same wounds as my worthless self,
Late nights at the diner, over countless cups of coffee, we talk about our dreams, and they’re surprisingly alike.
Soon, we all knew each other’s hearts, and before we knew it, we were the best of friends.

Time has passed since that time when I had nothing,
And now, I have everyone’s words pushing at my back, so I’m not lost.
No matter how much things might hurt, there’s nothing more painful than giving up,
So I’ll carry out the promise I made, because everyone is here.

In the corner of this city, I’m here singing.
The tears I’ve shed will surely turn into strength.
The subway and the park, the buildings and the trees, the scenery I’ve grown used to seeing –
With feelings of connection, I’ll be able to see them differently.

Talking through the night, being with the friends I knew for the first time was kindness.
I spilled out the words to everyone about the fights from those times, and I changed.
Dreams will never run away. Our bonds mend our broken wings.
After every failure, just keep trying until we can move on.

In the corner of this city, I’m here singing.
The tears I’ve shed will surely turn into strength.
In the corner of the vast city, I’m here singing.
With feelings of connection, I can go anywhere…

In the corner of this city, I’m here singing.
The tears I’ve shed will surely turn into strength.
In the corner of the vast city, I’m here singing.
With feelings of connection, I can go anywhere.

Kono Machi no Katasumi de
Lyrics: AKIRA
Composition: AKIRA
Arrangement: Daisuke “D.I” Imai

Jibun hitori de tsuyoku natta ki ga shite   “aitsu wa kirai da” nante
Ikikau hitonami minna petenshi ni miete   yume sagashi samayotte
Gamushara ni aruku biru no tanima   kaimamita haiiro no sora no namida
Mafuraa no oku ni samishisa to toiki   kakushikirenai risou to genjitsu no gyappu

Itsumo dokoka mitasarezu ni   motometsudzuketeta matezu ni
Hashiridashite tachidomaru   kurikaeshi no hibi ni
Deguchi wa mienakute   kono michi ga tadashii no ka sae wakaranai
Demo itsuka wa kono sora mo harewataru hazu da kara

Kono machi no katasumi de watashi wa utatteru
Nagashita namida mo kitto tsuyosa ni
Chikatetsu to kouen   biru to gairoju   minareta keshiki mo
Tsunaida omoi ga areba kawatte miete kuru nda

Ippo ippo susumu evuridei   setsuna shugi de itsumo ukemi de
Dame na jibun to onaji kizu motta   nakama ni mo sesshita na itsuwari no emi de
Koohii nanbai mo shin’ya no famiresu   yume wo katareba igai ni onaji de
Shidai ni tokeau kokoro   kidzukeba itsu shika saikou no tomo

Nani mo nakatta ano koro kara toki wa tachi
Ima wa minna no kotoba ga senaka wo oshite kureru kara mayoi wa nai yo
Donna ni tsuraku to mo   akirameru yori tsuraku wa nai
Dakara kawashita yakusoku hatashite miseru yo   minna ga iru kara

Kono machi no katasumi de watashi wa utatteru
Nagashita namida mo kitto tsuyosa ni
Chikatetsu to kouen   biru to gairoju   minareta keshiki mo
Tsunaida omoi ga areba kawatte miete kuru nda

Yoru wo koe katarashi akashita   hajimete shitta nakama to wa yasashisa
Ano toki no kenka mo   minna ni mo tarashita nda henka wo
Yume wa keshite nigetari shinai   oreta tsubasa tsumugu kizuna
Nando datte shippai kurikaeshite susumeba ii

Kono machi no katasumi de watashi wa utatteru
Nagashita namida mo kitto tsuyosa ni
Ooki na machi no katasumi de watashi wa utatteru
Tsunaida omoi ga areba doko made mo

Kono machi no katasumi de watashi wa utatteru
Nagashita namida mo kitto tsuyosa ni
Ooki na machi no katasumi de watashi wa utatteru
Tsunaida omoi ga areba doko made mo ikeru sa

この街の片隅で
作詞:AKIRA
作曲:AKIRA
編曲:Daisuke “D.I” Imai
歌:RSP

自分一人で強くなった気がして 「あいつはキライだ」なんて
行き交う人波皆ペテン師に見えて 夢探し彷徨って
がむしゃらに歩くビルの谷間 垣間見た灰色の空の涙
マフラーの奥に寂しさと吐息 隠しきれない理想と現実のギャップ

いつもどこか満たされずに 求め続けてた待てずに
走り出して立ち止まる 繰り返しの日々に
出口は見えなくて この道が正しいのかさえ分からない
でもいつかはこの空も晴れ渡るはずだから

この街の片隅でわたしは歌ってる
流した涙もきっと強さに
地下鉄と公園 ビルと街路樹 見慣れた景色も
繋いだ想いがあれば変わって見えてくるんだ

一歩一歩進むエヴリデイ 刹那主義でいつも受け身で
ダメな自分と同じ傷持った 仲間にも接したな偽りの笑みで
コーヒー何杯も深夜のファミレス 夢を語れば意外に同じで
次第に解け合う心 気付けばいつしか最高の友

何もなかったあの頃から時は経ち
今は皆の言葉が背中を押してくれるから迷いはないよ
どんなに辛くとも 諦めるより辛くはない
だから交わした約束果たしてみせるよ 皆がいるから

この街の片隅でわたしは歌ってる
流した涙もきっと強さに
地下鉄と公園 ビルと街路樹 見慣れた景色も
繋いだ想いがあれば変わって見えてくるんだ

夜を越え語り明かした はじめて知った仲間とはやさしさ
あの時の喧嘩も 皆にもたらしたんだ変化を
夢は決して逃げたりしない 折れた翼紡ぐ絆
何度だって失敗繰り返して進めばいい

この街の片隅でわたしは歌ってる
流した涙もきっと強さに
大きな街の片隅でわたしは歌ってる
繋いだ想いがあればどこまでもいけるさ

この街の片隅でわたしは歌ってる
流した涙もきっと強さに
大きな街の片隅でわたしは歌ってる
繋いだ想いがあればどこまでもいけるさ

lalala…
