Houkago no Pleiades – Koko kara, Kanata kara

Leave a comment

fragments, Houkago no Pleiades TV ED

Sung by the main cast for the anime, this song also has a cover version by Kano (arranged by samfree), which is already released on the single for “Stella-Rium”.

Also, for those of you following the blog by RSS: in case you missed it, I’ve already updated “Stella-rium” to its full version here. (I didn’t make a new post for it, for reasons.)

From Here, From Beyond
Lyrics: Kumano Kiyomi
Composition / Arrangement: Itou Tsubasa
Vocals: fragments (Takamori Natsumi, Oohashi Ayuru, Tateno Kanako, Makino Yui, Fujita Saki)

You see, when I raise my head,
Everyone is there, smiling.
I feel embarrassed and happy all at once, and the starry sky turns on its side.

The everyday life since then (Everyday life…) used to seen wrong to me.
Now, a little bit, just a little, I’ve started wondering to myself,
“Could I fly?”

Let’s meet in the “sky”.
We can get there anytime.
The wind scatters stars all over, and the lights dance, out there in the beyond.
“I need to catch it…”
The moment when my hand reached out, the landscape all around me was
Twinkling, someday’s after school…

You see, all people just go on living,
Never knowing why they were born.
I’m looking for a magic spell to confirm that I exist.

The luxury of freedom (Of freedom…) is so much to handle, all these days,
But I want to find the one thing that only I can do.
“I’ll be okay!”

Let’s meet in the “sky”.
If that’s not enough, we can go right now.
Put on a heart sticker and speed up.
“I want to hug you.”
You can make it; it’s never too late. The promise I made with you
Will never disappear, after school…

I’d like to stay here forever, protected by this special time after school,
But the ticking hand of uncertainty tells us the time.

Now, let’s go home, so that we can meet
Again, someday…

Let’s meet in the “sky”.
We can go anywhere.
The wind scatters stars all over, and the lights dance, out there in the beyond.
“I need to catch it…”
The moment when my hand reached out, the landscape all around me was
Twinkling, someday’s after school…

Koko kara, Kanata kara

Datte   kao wo agetara
Minna ga hohoende ite
Hazukashikute   ureshikute   yoko muku hoshizora

Are kara mainichi ga (mainichi ga)   dame tte omotteta
Ima sukoshi   hon no sukoshi   jibun ni kiite mita nda
“Toberu ka naa?”

“Sora” de aou
Watashitachi wa itsu demo   yukeru
Kaze ga hoshi wo maite   hikari ga odoru kanata
“Tsukamaenakya”
Sono te wo nobashita shunkan ni   hirogaru fuukei wa
Kirari   itsuka no after school

Datte   umareta wake wo
Dare mo ga shiranai mama de
Sonzai wo tashikameru   mahou wo sagasu no

Zeitaku na jiyuu wo (jiiyuu wo)
Moteamasu hibi dakedo
Mitsuketai   tatta hitotsu   jibun dake ni dekiru koto
“Daijoubu!”

“Sora” de aou
Tarinai no nara   sugu ni yukou
Hoshi no shiiru hatte   supiido appu kimete
“Dakishimetai”
Ma ni awanai nante nai yo   kimi to no yakusoku wa
Zutto   kienai after school

Houkago no tokubetsu ni   zutto mamoraretetai kedo
Aimai no hari ga toki wo tsugeru

Saa kaerou   meguriau tame ni
Mata, itsuka…

“Sora” de aou
Watashitachi wa doko demo   yukeru
Kaze ga hoshi wo maite   hikari ga odoru kanata
“Tsukamaenakya”
Sono te wo nobashita shunkan ni   hirogaru fuukei wa
Kirari   itsuka no after school

ここから、彼方から

だって 顔を上げたら
みんなが微笑んでいて
恥ずかしくて 嬉しくて 横向く星空

あれから毎日が(まいにちが) ダメって思ってた
いま少し ほんの少し 自分に聞いてみたんだ
「飛べるかなぁ?」

“そら”で逢おう
わたしたちはいつでも ゆける
風が星を蒔いて ひかりが躍る彼方
“つかまえなきゃ”
その手をのばした瞬間に ひろがる風景は
キラリ いつかのafter school

だって 生まれた理由を
誰もが知らないままで
存在を確かめる 魔法を探すの

ぜいたくな自由を(じーゆうを)
持てあます日々だけど
見つけたい たったひとつ 自分だけにできること
「だいじょうぶっ!」

“そら”で逢おう
足りないのなら すぐにゆこう
星のシール貼って スピードアップ決めて
“だきしめたい”
間に合わないなんてないよ キミとの約束は
ずっと 消えないafter school

放課後の特別に ずっと守られてたいけど
曖昧の針が刻を告げる

さあ帰ろう 巡り逢うために
また、いつか…

“そら”で逢おう
わたしたちはどこでも ゆける
風が星を蒔いて ひかりが躍る彼方
“つかまえなきゃ”
その手をのばした瞬間に ひろがる風景は
キラリ いつかのafter school
