The Arms That Embrace
Vocals: Chata
Music: Peejun
Lyrics: nk
Illustration: Fukukitaru (Electric Range)

I wait behind-the-scenes for the opportune moment
So that I can slip away without being found.
I hate to leave behind the comfy napping place I know so well,
But I have to get going.

Don’t ask me, “Where are you going?”
I can’t let myself be seen.

CLOCK MUSIC (Pe-jun / Chata) – Gojuunido no Kanata

CLOCK MUSIC, C76 release Gojuunido no Kanata / Dakikakaeru Ude

52do_700x700

Listen: http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm13183865

Companion song: 『Dakikakaeru Ude』

Beyond 52°
Vocals: Chata
Music: Peejun
Lyrics: nk
Illustration: Fukukitaru (Electric Range)

Once, just a single time, a mysterious thing happened.
Even though you’re not a bird, I saw you take flight.

There was an expression
On your face – you’d never showed it before.
In midair, you turned my way a little and gave me a tender look.

I didn’t feel a trace of unease,
But I immediately realized what had happened.

Owari no Chronicle – chronicle

TEAM LEVIATHAN CHRONICLE (onoken feat. Chata), Owari no Chronicle image song, BREAK; collected in GO AHEAD

Requested by McWhite.

Copy/pasting disclaimer: I have yet to read Owari no Chronicle (seriously, it is a huge and complicated series), but I intend to someday, so if I missed anything due to lack of knowledge of the source, I will come back here and fix.

chronicle
Composition / Arrangement: onoken

My eyes, devoid of confusion, reflect things as they are.
Seeking the answer that lies beyond, I stretch out my hands.

The destination of the question that each person carries
Is his or her respective tomorrow.

Owari no Chronicle – Riyuu

TEAM LEVIATHAN CHRONICLE, Owari no Chronicle image song, GET SET; collected in AHEAD

Requested by McWhite.

I have yet to read Owari no Chronicle (seriously, it is a huge and complicated series), but I intend to someday, so if I missed anything due to lack of knowledge of the source, I will come back here and fix.

Reason
Composition / Arrangement: onoken
Lyrics / Vocals: Chata

The sound of wind, far away.
What carries it here is
A song that someone is humming.

On the parched road,
The swaying vegetation
Is proof of the world we protected.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni – samsara

Chata, Kakera Musubi

Once again, “samsara” is the Sanskrit word for the cycle of suffering through birth, death, and rebirth in such religions as Buddhism and Hinduism.

This song’s atmosphere is interesting; the words come in a long stream that really brings out the feeling of being in an endless maze.

samsara
Vocals: Chata
Lyrics: interface
Composition / Arrangement: bermei.inazawa

On the other side of my eyelids, a scene from some time and place floats up and disappears.
Countless nights have passed waiting for a single morning.
Inside a maze that continues on infinitely, I saw a dream with no awakening.

The shells of cicadas that were exhausted from crying in heavy sadness can’t fight on.
My empty self, with nowhere to go,

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai: Meakashi-hen – you

Yukino Satsuki, Drama CD Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai: Meakashi-hen ED

This was an ending theme for the Meakashi-hen drama CD, sung by Shion’s voice actress, Yukino Satsuki – oh look, she wrote the lyrics, as well. Just beautiful.

EDIT: I have recently discovered that this song was later covered by Chata (Anime House Project), so I’ve added the post to her category.

you
Lyrics: Yukino Satsuki
Composition: dai
Arrangement: OdiakeS
Vocals: Yukino Satsuki

Wind, stars, convey these feelings; believe that I’m waiting.

If you can feel it, the sky is full of stars – I wonder if you’re also looking upward.
I, released, was granted pure white wings.
But waiting is the promise I made with you – I remember.
