Strike Witches – Toki

Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke (Rie Tanaka), STRIKE WITCHES Himeuta Collection 3

Time
Lyrics / Composition: Seiji Miura
Arrangement: Keita Miyahara
Vocals: Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke (Rie Tanaka)

The tender sensation of you stroking my cheek – even now, those memories are sweet.
Only the part where we talked about our dreams turns into a pain that pounds through my veins.

I rejected the idea that scars
Will heal again no matter how many times they’re scratched.

Please, let time stop flowing for just a little bit.
I don’t want to lock you away in memories.
Ah, the days that were lost
Still cast a dull, flickering light in my chest.

I wander through the ruined city, searching for a single grain of sand.
“There’s no way I’ll find an answer…” I claim, but somewhere inside, I’m hoping for something.

Let me hear just one word. Tell me that what remains
Is more than just a sorrowful song.

Time flows on cruelly.
Your fleeting face moves further away,
But for some reason, I don’t regret that we met.
The pure feelings I turned my eyes away from fill my heart again.

No matter how much time flows by,
Even if the shape of the earth were to change,
The simple fact that I loved you
Is the one thing I will never forget, along with the vow that will not fade.

Toki
Lyrics / Composition: Miura Seiji
Arrangement: Miyahara Keita
Vocals: Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke (Tanaka Rie)

Hoho wo naderu yawai kanshoku  ima mo amayaka na sono kioku wa
Katariatta yume no bun dake  myaku wo utsu itami ni naru

Kizuato  nando mo tsume wo tatete
Iete yuku koto  kobanda

Toki yo nagarenai de  sukoshi dake
Anata wo omoide ni  tojikometaku nai
Aa  ushinawareta ano hibi wa
Mada kono mune ni  nibui hikari yuramekaseteru

Kuzureochita machi wo samayoi  suna no hitotsubu wo sagashite iru
“Kotae nante…” usobukinagara  demo dokoka kitai shiteta

Hitokoto kikasete  nokoshita no wa
Kanashii uta dake ja nai to

Toki wa nagarete yuku  zankoku ni
Hakanai omokage wa  toozakaru keredo
Naze  deaeta koto kuyamenai
Me wo somuketeta jun na omoi  mata komiageru

Toki wa nagarete yuku  dore kurai
Kono sekai no katachi  kaete yukou to mo
Tada aishite ita  sore dake wa
Mou wasurenai  kie wa shinai chikai to tomo ni


作詩・作曲:三浦誠司
編曲:宮原恵太
歌:ミーナ・ディートリンデ・ヴィルケ(田中理恵)

頬を撫でる柔い感触 今も甘やかなその記憶は
語り合った夢の分だけ 脈を打つ痛みになる

傷跡 何度も爪を立てて
癒えてゆくこと 拒んだ

時よ流れないで 少しだけ
貴方を思い出に 閉じ込めたくない
ああ 失われたあの日々は
まだこの胸に 鈍い光揺らめかせてる

崩れ落ちた街を彷徨い 砂の一粒を探している
「答えなんて…」嘯きながら でもどこか期待してた

一言聞かせて 遺したのは
悲しい歌だけじゃないと

時は流れてゆく 残酷に
儚い面影は 遠ざかるけれど
なぜ 出逢えたこと悔やめない
目を背けてた純な想い またこみあげる

時は流れてゆく どれくらい
この世界の形 変えてゆこうとも
ただ愛していた それだけは
もう忘れない 消えはしない誓いと共に
