Iguchi Yuka – Yakusoku ~Boku no Uta~

Leave a comment

Iguchi Yuka, c/w DanMachi opening theme Hey World (Anime Edition)

Note: the romanized title could in fact be “Yakusoku ~Boku no Shi~” (with the same meaning), but ever since AIR and “Tori no Uta”, I guess I feel entrained to use ‘uta’. I unfortunately can’t find any reliable sources to confirm, so for the moment, I go with my instincts.

Promise ~My Poem~
Lyrics: Satomi
Composition: Makaino Kouji
Arrangement: Maeguchi Wataru
Vocals: Iguchi Yuka

So that I can move toward
The place I want to reach,
I just try my best,
Doing what I can for now.

If I do nothing,
My aspirations will forever
Be nothing more than aspirations
And rust someday.

The promise I made with you is in my heart,
Held close like a protective charm.

It doesn’t have to be much;
I want to become stronger than I am now,
Not only for myself,
But for you.

As I am now,
I can’t do much more
Than get hurt over little things
And cry,

But you speak to me
So directly, with no dishonesty;
You cast those words my way
And return my smile.

I’m searching for the meaning of my life,
So right now, I’m fighting desperately.

It doesn’t have to be much;
I want to become stronger than I am now,
Not only for myself,
But for you.

I feel your hand on my back,
And each time, my heart grows stronger,
Because the one I’m meant to protect
Is right here.

It doesn’t have to be much;
I want to become stronger than I am now,
Not only for myself,
But for you.

A world beginning…

Yakusoku ~Boku no Uta~
Lyrics: Satomi
Composition: Makaino Kouji

Tadoritsukitai
Basho e to mukau tame ni
Ima boku ga dekiru koto wo
Ganbaru dake

Nani mo shinakya
Akogare wa itsu made demo
Akogare no mama de itsuka
Sabitsuiteku

Kimi to shita yakusoku wo  kokoro de
Omamori no you ni kakaete

Sukoshi demo ii
Ima yori tsuyoku naritai
Boku no tame  sore dake ja nai
Kimi no tame ni

Ima no boku wa
Sasai na koto de sugu ni
Kizutsuite naku koto shika
Dekinai kedo

Itsuwari no nai
Massugu na sono kotoba wo
Nagekakeru kimi ni boku wa
Egao kaesu

Ikiru imi wo sagashite iru kara
Ima wo hisshi ni tatakau

Sukoshi demo ii
Ima yori tsuyoku naritai
Boku no tame  sore dake ja nai
Kimi no tame ni

Senaka ni kanjiru kimi no te
Sono tabi kokoro wa tsuyoku nareru
Boku ni wa mamoru beki hito ga
Koko ni iru kara

Sukoshi demo ii
Ima yori tsuyoku naritai
Boku no tame  sore dake ja nai
Kimi no tame ni

約束 ~僕の詩~
作詞:Satomi
作曲:馬飼野康二
編曲:前口 渉
歌:井口裕香

たどりつきたい
場所へと向かうために
いま僕ができることを
頑張るだけ

何もしなきゃ
憧れはいつまででも
憧れのままでいつか
錆ついてく

君とした約束を 心で
お守りのように抱えて

少しでもいい
いまより強くなりたい
僕のため それだけじゃない
君のために

いまの僕は
些細なことですぐに
傷ついて泣くことしか
出来ないけど

偽りのない
まっすぐなその言葉を
投げかける君に僕は
笑顔返す

生きる意味を探しているから
いまを必死に戦う

少しでもいい
いまより強くなりたい
僕のため それだけじゃない
君のために

背中に感じる君の手
そのたび心は強くなれる
僕には守るべき人が
ここにいるから

少しでもいい
いまより強くなりたい
僕のため それだけじゃない
君のために

はじまってく世界
