Wooser no Sono Higurashi: Kakusei-hen (Tia / ryo) – Chotto Dekakete Kimasu

Just Heading Out For A Bit
Lyrics, Music & Arrangement: ryo (supercell)
Vocals: Tia

I write this letter.
To you, still helpless…
For leaving you alone so suddenly, I apologize.

When I think of you, prone to crying as you are,
I feel like my heart could break apart from the pain.
But you see, the truth is, more than you know…

In This Night of Twinkling Stars
Lyrics / Composition: ryo
Arrangement: ryo
Vocals: nagi

Believe, believe, there’s magic here tonight
Believe, believe!

It was a very quiet night.
The cold air prickled at my cheeks.
I must have been unconsciously glaring at you.
You were making that face that says,
“……It’s not my fault.”

supercell – Melt

supercell, Vocaloid original song

Lyrics / Composition: ryo

I wake up in the morning,
And the first thought that comes to my head is of you.
I made up my mind and cut my bangs,
Wanting to hear you ask me about it.

I put on a pink skirt and stick a flower in my hair,
And then I head out.
Today, I’m cute!

Transient Fireworks
Lyrics / Composition: ryo
Arrangement: ryo
Vocals: nagi

The festival at the end of August was filled and crowded with people.
I wore a yukata and put on wooden sandals,
Making those clicking and clacking sounds.
When the two of us looked up at the fireworks that suddenly went up,
I quietly stole a glance at your face as you watched in a trance.

It would be easier if I’d grown to hate you,
But on a day like today, I’m sure
That I’ll remember you again.

Bakemonogatari – Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari

supercell, Bakemonogatari ED

I especially like ryo’s lyrics and piano.

EDIT 8/13/09: Due in part to this post, I’ve apparently had over 15000 hits for some time already. Thanks, all.

The Story You Don’t Know
Lyrics, Music & Arrangement: ryo
Sound Produced by ryo
Vocals: nagi

On one day like any other,
You suddenly spoke up and said,
“Tonight, let’s go look at the stars.”

“Sometimes you say good things.”
Everyone said that and laughed.
We walked on the street with no light,
Frolicking like fools
So that we wouldn’t be crushed
By the loneliness and unease we carried.

I Won’t Forget You
Lyrics / Composition: ryo
Vocals: Hatsune Miku

This melody remembers countless nights,
A lamp of hope that colors the darkness.
I’ll sing any number of times
This poem that plays in the place of the tears you shed.

Somehow, somehow, find me.
Wishes or prayers don’t reach you.
