Kanako Ito – Reliance

1 Comment

Kanako Ito, c/w Steins;Gate OP Hacking to the Gate

Beautiful. I really like it when Itou Kanako sings in triple-meter songs (like she did in School Days), and the instrumentation is great, both relaxing and powerful.

Note: in the chorus, とき (toki, “time”) is written as 時空 (jikuu, “space-time”) in the booklet. (Look familiar?)

Reliance
Lyrics: Kanako Ito
Composition: Masayuki Adaniya
Arrangement: Toshimichi Isoe
Vocals: Kanako Ito

The starry sky grows clouded; the light in the city increases.
People come and go in the noise – I was engulfed by the crowd.

Seeking an answer, I set the repetition in motion.
One drop of my emotions dissolves into the night.

“I want to meet you” – for some reason, my heart shouts.
It becomes vague and unclear – fleeting memories…

I can cross through time and space. If there is a door,
It will definitely connect me to you.

Countless thoughts flow into the night sky.
I simply gaze out at the waves as they draw near and then recede.

“We can’t meet,” but I’m right here at your side.
I pass around the spare keys. Distant memories…

Now… as I embrace the sky above and feel the blow of the wind,
It makes me feel like I can change the world.
I can cross through time and space. Even if there is no door,
I will definitely connect with you.

Riraiansu
Lyrics: Itou Kanako
Composition: Adaniya Masayuki
Arrangement: Isoe Toshimichi

Kasunda hoshizora   machi wa hikari wo mashite
Yukikau zawameki   tsutsumikomareta

Kotae wo motome   kurikaeshi hajikidasu
Omoi ga hitotsubu   yoru ni toketeku

“Aitai”   naze ka   kokoro sakebu
Aimai ni naru   awai kioku

Toki wo koerareru   tobira ga aru nara
Kanarazu anata e to tsunagete

Musuu no omoi ga   yozora e to nagaredasu
Yosete kaesu nami   nagameteru dake

“Aenai”   dakedo   soba ni iru yo
Aikagi wo mawasu   tooi kioku

Ima   sora wo daite   kaze ni fukaretara
Sekai wo kaerareru   ki ga shita
Toki wo koerareru   tobira ga nakute mo
Kanarazu anata e to tsunagaru

編曲:磯江俊道
歌:いとうかなこ

霞んだ星空 街は光を増して
行き交うざわめき 包み込まれた

答えを求めて 繰り返し弾き出す
想いがひと粒 夜に溶けてく

“会いたい” ナゼか 心叫ぶ
曖昧になる 淡い記憶

時空を越えられる 扉があるなら
必ずあなたへとつなげて

無数の想いが 夜空へと流れ出す
寄せて返す波 眺めてるだけ

“会えない” だけど そばにいるよ
合カギを回す 遠い記憶

今 宇宙を抱いて 風に吹かれたら
世界を変えられる 気がした
時空を越えられる 扉がなくても
必ずあなたへとつながる
