Strike Witches – Guilty Optimists

2 Comments

Francesca Lucchini (Chiwa Saitou) & Charlotte E. Yeager (Ami Koshimizu); STRIKE WITCHES Himeuta Collection 4

Pachelbel’s “Canon in D”? For Italy and America? *shrug*

Composition is by the same person who composed Haruhi’s “Bouken Desho Desho?”.

Guilty Optimists
Lyrics: Seiji Miura
Composition: Akiko Tomita
Arrangement: Yoshihiro Kusano
Vocals: Francesca Lucchini (Chiwa Saitou) & Charlotte E. Yeager (Ami Koshimizu)

Let’s link together as partners in crime.
Let’s keep our obsessions safe somewhere else and travel lightly.

Baby,
Living on is
Heavy.
Isn’t that just what they think?
It’s really a roulette that depends on how you feel.
…Because, look!

I’m half joking – that’s how it always is.
Standard tactics, even though you say you’re tired of it.

Baby,
It takes a snake to handle
A snake.
That’s what they say.
Wasn’t that nicer than you thought it would be?

Everyone is just doing whatever they want, so it’s only natural –
When it’s like that, it would be our loss to be patient, right?
Let’s save the strict lectures for later and just play!
We fit together devilishly well – innocently laughing optimists.

How do we plead? Make an innocent face.
Court-martials are so harsh. Let’s take it easy!

Baby,
This world is
Heavy.
While that may be true,
If we’re together, it’ll never get dark.

Twenty-four hours a day, we have real freedom. Let’s fly over there
And not mind the annoyances around us.
Fortune comes only to those who have fun and enjoy life.
The situation may have been tangled at some point, but if it ends well, it’s all OK!

Spare me from boredom.
I want to live every moment with my heart pounding.
If I’m with you… I’m sure from now on…

Everyone is just doing whatever they want, so it’s only natural –
When it’s like that, it would be our loss to be patient, right?
Let’s save the strict lectures for later and just play!
We fit together devilishly well – innocently laughing optimists.

Guilty Optimists
Lyrics: Miura Seiji
Composition: Tomita Akiko
Arrangement: Kusano Yoshihiro

Kyouhan kankei  musunjaou yo
Kyouhaku kannen  dokka ni azukete migaru ni yukou

Baby
Ikiteku no wa
Heavy
Kimetsuketeru?
Sonna no kibun makase no ruuretto
…Datte sa

Joudan hanbun  sore ga itsumo no
Joutou shudan  akireta mon da to kimi wa iu kedo

Baby
Ja no michi to wa
Hebi
Sou iu mono
Angai oki ni meshita nja nai?

Dare datte sukikatte shitagatte atarimae
Sore nara gaman shicha  son suru desho?
Katakurushii okogoto wa ato ni shite asobimashou
Nikui kurai iki ga au ne  mujaki ni warau Optimists

Zaijou ninpi  shiran kao shite
Gunpou kaigi  odayaka ja nai ne kiraku ni yukou

Baby
Yo no naka to wa
Heavy
Dakara to itte
Issho ni kuraku naru koto nai jan

Shirokujichuu totemo jiyuu  sokorajuu tobimaware
Mawari no meiwaku mo  okamai naku
Kouun wa tanoshinda mono ni dake yatte kuru
Suttamonda atta tokoro de  owari yokereba All OK

Taikutsu nante kanben shite yo
Donna toki demo dokidoki shite itai
Kimi to dattara… kitto kore kara…

Dare datte sukikatte shitagatte atarimae
Sore nara gaman shicha  son suru desho?
Katakurushii okogoto wa ato ni shite asobimashou
Nikui kurai iki ga au ne  mujaki ni warau Optimists

Guilty Optimists
作詩:三浦誠司
作曲:冨田暁子
編曲:草野よしひろ
歌:フランチェスカ・ルッキーニ(斎藤千和)&シャーロット・E・イェーガー(小清水亜美)

共犯関係 結んじゃおうよ
強迫観念 どっかに預けて身軽に行こう

Baby
生きてくのは
Heavy
決めつけてる?
そんなの気分まかせのルーレット
…だってさ

冗談半分 それがいつもの
常套手段 呆れたもんだとキミは言うけど

Baby
蛇の道とは
ヘビ
そういうもの
案外お気に召したんじゃない?

誰だって好き勝手したがって当たり前
それならガマンしちゃ 損するでしょ?
堅苦しいお小言は後にして遊びましょう
憎いくらい息が合うね 無邪気に笑うOptimists

罪状認否 知らん顔して
軍法会議 穏やかじゃないね気楽に行こう

Baby
世の中とは
Heavy
だからといって
一緒に暗くなることないじゃん

四六時中とても自由 そこらじゅう飛び回れ
周りの迷惑も おかまいなく
幸運は楽しんだ者にだけやってくる
すったもんだあったところで 終わりよければAll OK

退屈なんて勘弁してよ
どんな時でもドキドキしていたい
キミとだったら…きっとこれから…

誰だった好き勝手したがって当たり前
それならガマンしちゃ 損するでしょ?
堅苦しいお小言は後にして遊びましょう
憎いくらい息が合うね 無邪気に笑うOptimists
