5 – Eien

Shimotsuki Haruka, 5 -five- ED, 5 -five- Sound Album

Requested by Frances.

I don’t know anything about the story of 5, but something about this song is just beautifully heartbreaking.

Eternity
Lyrics: Maeda Jun
Composition: Maeda Jun
Arrangement: Togoshi Magome [Remix version: takumaru]
Vocals: Shimotsuki Haruka

In the palms of my hands lie fragments of silver.
What I remember is flowing hair.
I take the fever, and it disappears on my skin.
I felt like that was eternity.

If the cuffs of my pants get wet,
I can just wait until they dry.
Making sounds in the water, I jumped in.

You taught me this. I’m not afraid anymore.
I have to let go of this hand that was holding on to mine.

Lia – Hanabi

Lia, Spica/Hanabi/Moon; collected in Lia COLLECTION ALBUM Vol. 2 “Crystal Voice”

Requested by keith.

Fireworks
Words and Music by Key (Jun Maeda)
Arranged by Yuu Hagiwara
Vocals by Lia

On that day, you pulled me by my hand and said to me,
“Let’s aim for the life on the other side of the wall.”
You put your arms around the shoulders of the me who was frail and seemed like I’d break,
And we walked anywhere inside the deep darkness.

The dream the two of us aimed for is far away.
The dream the two of us lost is also far away.

Angel Beats! – Morning Dreamer

Girls Dead Monster, Keep the Beats!

Morning Dreamer
Lyrics / Composition: Jun Maeda
Arrangement: Hikarisyuyo
Vocals: Yui (LiSA)

The alarm clock is ringing loudly in my ears.
Please, let me sleep for a little more.
At the drinking party after yesterday’s gig,
I couldn’t drink alcohol, of course, but I had juice. Still…
I’m living seriously through busy days.
So somehow, let this kind of me sleep…
When I actually get up, I’ll let you hear the new song.
Of course, when I sing and play, the harmony is all yours.
I’ll teach you as attentively as I can, so don’t you worry.
Ah, right, I broke a string. Go out and buy some, please!

Angel Beats! – Run With Wolves

Girls Dead Monster, Keep the Beats!

Run With Wolves
Lyrics / Composition: Jun Maeda
Arrangement: Hikarisyuyo
Vocals: Yui (LiSA)

Every night, I endure the pain that visits me on top of the squeaking, creaking bed.
Did I get something wrong? Thinking about this and that, I wallow in feelings of regret.

“The way it is now, it’s no good.” I don’t know who said that anymore.

Angel Beats! – 23:50

Girls Dead Monster, Keep the Beats!

23:50
Lyrics / Composition: Jun Maeda
Arrangement: Hikarisyuyo
Vocals: Yui (LiSA)

There were various things in the space between the two of us.
Our hobbies are different, so we won’t clean up together.
“You’re the one better at cooking, so you should do it.”
You give me those one-sided orders.
The day when a couple like us
Can smile and get past that will come someday.

Angel Beats! – Answer Song

Girls Dead Monster, Little Braver

Answer Song
Lyrics / Composition: Jun Maeda
Arrangement: Hikarisyuyo
Vocals: Yui (LiSA)

I’m about to collapse. How long have I been playing the guitar and singing?
But it’s impossible for me to stop my feet.
If that’s case, I’ll shout out the reason we live through human suffering.
…But with me as I am, that would be arrogant – that’s what I think.

I’ve already forgotten the dream I had yesterday,

Let’s click our heels and get out of this cramped room.
