Umi Monogatari – Kokoro no Uta

Itou Masumi, Umi Monogatari drama CD image song (Urin-hen)

This is the best song from Umi Monogatari, in my opinion.

A note follows the translation.

Song of the Heart
Lyrics: micco
Composition / Arrangement: Itou Masumi
Vocals: Itou Masumi

The voice of the wind obscures the sun and even the shapes of the clouds from view.
These landscapes, these shades of color –
Each separate one is different.

Let your fleeting feelings blur and mix with everything.
Place your hands on the place where your heart is.

Umi Monogatari – Minna, Aishiteru!

Marin (CV. Asumi Kana), Umi Monogatari ~Anata ga Ite Kureta Koto~ character song (on drama CD)

Kana Asumi singing in character is always so fun and energetic.

I Love You, Everyone!
Lyrics: micco
Composition / Arrangement: Kikuchi Tatsuya
Vocals: Marin (CV. Asumi Kana)

The things I’m looking at are all new things for me. Every day has my heart beating fast, and it’s almost too fun.
Look, something new is beginning.

I close my eyes like it’s more than I deserve. The color and the scent of the flowers invite me; it’s wonderful.
“Hey, why is this so pretty? Where did it come from?” My feelings overflow.

Afternoon of Stars
Lyrics: riya
Composition / Arrangement: Itou Masumi

The road that carries the two of us along
Is far, but it will always continue to any place.

Inside the swaying water,
The sky that’s reflected upside down
Is always gentle,
Setting many dreams alight.

Umi Monogatari – tiny sweet

marble, Umi Monogatari drama CD OP, Kuusou Jet!

tiny sweet
Lyrics: micco
Composition / Arrangement: Kikuchi Tatsuya
Performance: marble

Today begins with a bright ray of sunlight from the window.
Just like we always do every day, we greet each other again.

Even the sound of the waves feels so natural that I can’t hear them.
Let’s listen carefully. Look, the world is projected there.

It flows along in the sand. We can take a little more in our hands.

Flower of Time
Lyrics: micco
Composition / Arrangement: Kikuchi Tatsuya
Strings Arrangement: Ishikawa Tomohisa
Performance: marble

Hey, it would be nice if I could be with you forever
In a peaceful place, silent, with only the sound of the waves.
But now, it no longer exists anywhere –

A clock with the time we left behind.
The droplets that disappear when they fall

Are tiny hopes.

Wipe Away Those Tears
Lyrics / Composition: micco
Arrangement: Kikuchi Tatsuya
Performance: marble

Let’s wipe away those tears and start walking.
What you’re searching for is still waiting far away.

All of the people who pass by each other,
All of the waves that are flowing on by –
They’re connected by a thread that no one knows about.
