Leave a comment

【Lyrics Translation】 Ikoma Harumi & Kamitani Keiko, Scitron 10th Anniversary Special: Samurai Spirits THE BEST -Selected by Characters-

This is a character song for Nakoruru and Rimururu; in addition to the character CD arrangement, there is also a variation that was used as an ending theme for Samurai Shodown: Warriors Rage (Kenkaku Ibunroku Yomigaerishi Soukou no Yaiba: Samurai Spirits Shinshou). The tune is based on Nakoruru’s stage theme.

Connecting Hearts
Vocals: Ikoma Harumi / Kamitani Keiko
Lyrics: MOMO
Composition: Neo Geo Music Performance Group

Whenever I’m with you,
(When I’m with my elder sister…)
The sky seems gentle…
(I feel warm…)
When we searched for stars in the sky,
(Father, look, the stars…)
We would go home down this road
(Connected, hand in hand)
The hill of blooming dandelions where we played until dusk
The sunshine-yellow that you placed in my hair
When we hold hands within our hearts, I feel the same warmth I felt that day

The two of us once listened together
(Mother is singing)
To that faraway lullaby
(A gentle song)
When we suddenly felt lonely in the night,
(Just like Mother would,)
She would sing to us
(Stroke my hair)
The day when we got lost in the forest, holding in tears
The riverbed we fell into while chasing dragonflies
When I embrace what’s inside my heart, I instantly know what’s important

Let’s always keep our hearts connected
(Let’s always keep our hearts connected)
Let’s go deliver our love
(Let’s go see each other)
Far away, at the end of the land, someone is waiting
(Ah, at the end of the land, someone is waiting)

Whenever I’m with you,
(When I’m with my elder sister…)
The sky seems gentle…
(I feel warm…)
Whenever I’m with you…
(I feel warm…)

Kokoro wo Tsunaide

Lyrics: MOMO
Composition: Shinsekai Gakkyoku Zatsugidan

Itsumo futari de iru to ne
(Nee-sama to iru to…)
Sora ga yasashikute…
(Atatakakute…)
Sora ni hoshi wo sagashite wa
(Too-san hoshi hora…)
Kono michi kaetta
(Te wo tsunaide)
Yuugure made hashaida   tanpopo saku oka
Kami ni sashite kureta   hidamari no iro
Kokoro no naka de te wo tsunageba  ano hi to onaji nukumori da ne

Itsuka futari de kiita ne
(Kaa-sama ga utau)
Tooi komoriuta
(Yasashii uta)
Fui ni sabishii yoru ni wa
(Kaa-sama mitai ni)
Utatte kureta ne
(Kami wo nadete)
Mori no naka mayotte   namida koraeta hi
Tonbo oikakete wa   koronda kawara
Kokoro no naka wo dakishimetara  taisetsu na mono sugu wakaru no

Itsudemo futari kokoro wo tsunaide
(Itsudemo   kokoro wo   tsunaide)
Ai wo todoke ni yukou
(Ai ni yukou)
Haruka daichi no hate   dareka ga matteru
(Aa daichi no hate   dareka ga matteru)

Itsumo futari de iru to ne
(Nee-sama to iru to)
Sora ga yasashikute…
(Atatakakute…)
Itsumo futari de iru to…
(Atatakakute…)

心をつないで
歌:生駒直美・神谷けいこ
作詞:MOMO
作曲:新世界楽曲雑技団

いつもふたりでいるとね
(ねえさまといると…)
空が優しくて…
(暖かくて…)
空に星を捜しては
(とおさん星ほら…)
この道帰った
(手をつないで)
夕暮れまではしゃいだ たんぽぽ咲く丘
髪に差してくれた ひだまりの色
心の中で手をつなげば あの日と同じぬくもりだね

いつか二人で聞いたね
(かあさまが歌う)
遠い子守歌
(やさしい歌)
ふいに淋しい夜には
(かあさまみたいに)
歌ってくれたね
(髪を撫でて)
森の中迷って 涙こらえた日
トンボ追いかけては ころんだ川原
心のなかを抱きしめたら 大切なものすぐわかるの

いつでもふたり心つないで
(いつでも 心を つないで)
愛を届けにゆこう
(会いにゆこう)
遥か大地の果て 誰かが待ってる
(あー大地の果て 誰かが待ってる)

いつもふたりでいるとね
(ねえさまといると)
空が優しくて…
(暖かくて…)
いつもふたりでいると…
(暖かくて…)
