In the whirlpool of emotions that stream in now,
I stared hard, and in the blue, I realized…

(Breathing now, Breathing now, Breathing now) Seared in my memory.
(Breathing now, Breathing now, Breathing now) I won’t forget
(Breathing now, Breathing now, Breathing now) About the season
(Breathing now, Breathing now, Breathing now) That we had. Alright,

When did it begin? By the time I noticed,
Its presence was already too much for me to shake off.
“Is it now? Is it now?” Constantly pressing me,
The time limit is just around the corner.

Free! -Eternal Summer- – Dried Up Youthful Fame

OLDCODEX, Free! -Eternal Summer- OP

Dried Up Youthful Fame
Lyrics: YORKE.
Music: Ta_2
Arrangement: eba

I lament over the things I never could give up on,
But every time, I can’t face them down.
If I laugh and go out to meet the end,
Maybe I won’t make mistakes anymore.

In this place of clarity,
I’ve begun to notice the shadows
Of the birds that lift off into the sky.

There’s just one thing to do –
I can turn all this into vivid memories.

Free! – SPLASH FREE

STYLE FIVE, Free! ED

( ≖‿≖)

Was a little tricky to get the verse before the second chorus into a rendering I liked – I wanted to keep it possible to interpret it both completely sequentially and as two lines of thought, while still staying coherent. I think I did okay. I was also a little looser with punctuation than usual.

SPLASH FREE
Lyrics: Kodama Saori
Composition / Arrangement: Watanabe Yasushi
Vocals: STYLE FIVE = Nanase Haruka (CV: Shimazaki Nobunaga), Tachibana Makoto (CV: Suzuki Tatsuhisa), Matsuoka Rin (CV: Miyano Mamoru), Hazuki Nagisa (CV: Yonaga Tsubasa), Ryuugazaki Rei (CV: Hirakawa Daisuke)

Make us free, Splash! Bathing in the contrast of overlapping rays of light,
Feel so free today, diving into our Brand new blue, yeah
Just like you pictured, sei! sei! sei! a-oh
Just be yourself and kick! kick! kick! a-oh
I want to catch it, pull! pull! pull! a-oh
I feel like it’ll reach me, deep! deep! deep! Splash Free

Like there’s no day without a shift out of place (out of place), a backing & filling butterfly.
Trial and error to find the odds to win (in the future)
Can come later, yeah? (so take it easy, ah)
