When I want to meet with you, (instantly,)

My Memories Get In the Way
Lyrics: rino
Composition: Nakamura Yuu
Arrangement: Iwata Masayuki

You’re laughing next to me, but it looks like that’s not enough.
I want to try touching you like the misty wind.

My feelings can’t escape from the forest of memories.
I just want to paint in the space of distance that doesn’t change.

My future was imprisoned by the inconsistency that comes and goes.
I need to shoot it down.

Asobi ni Iku yo! – Kokoro no Madobe nite

Futaba Aoi (CV. Hanazawa Kana), Asobi ni Iku yo! ED1


Some lines, particularly in the chorus, are a bit ambiguous as to where sentences begin and end, but I feel like in this song, the images themselves are the most important part.

Arrangement: Nijine
Vocals: Futaba Aoi (CV. Hanazawa Kana)

When I went to the light that is you.
Under the rain of heartbeats that doesn’t stop,
All alone, I just…

I just wish for a dream I won’t wake up from
And pass through the moments.

It’s fun, so please give me everything.
I really want to make everything mine.
My intentions spill out into the blue sky.
