Kanji Romaji English
愛の風景の中においで
恋人達は痛みを抱えて
互いを責め合って、でも互いを選んでいる
貴方は愛のメロディーを奏でる
忘れ去られたフレーズを甘く優しく
Ai no fuukei no naka ni oide
Koibitotachi wa itami wo kakaete
Tagai wo semeatte, demo tagai wo erande iru
Anata wa ai no merodii wo kanaderu
Wasuresarareta fureezu wo amaku yasashiku
enter the scenery of love
lovers are in pain
they blame and pick on each other
you play melodies of love
forgotten phrases
tender and sweet
もう少し側に来てよ
影の中に留まっていないで
旋律が消えて行く
今でなければだめなの
愛しさはすぐに消えてしまうなら
Mou sukoshi soba ni kite yo
Kage no naka ni tomatte inaide
Senritsu ga kiete yuku
Ima de nakereba dame na no
Aishisa wa sugu ni kiete shimau nara
come a little bit closer
don’t stay in the shadows my boy
(la la la la la la la)
the melody’s fading…..
now or never, love will go
いつも貴方の側にいる
静かな購いの中に貴方の恐れを分け合って
唇に触れて、抱きしめて
もう少しだけこの夢さの中にいて
Itsumo anata no soba ni iru
Shizuka na aganai no naka ni anata no osore wo wakeatte
Kuchibiru ni furete, dakishimete
Mou sukoshi dake kono yumesa no naka ni ite
I’ll be there by your side
share your fears in the silent redemption
touch my lips, hold me tight
live in vanity for a while
太陽の中に冬が溶けて去れば
少年達は光に手を伸ばして走る
ママ、僕を見つけてね
想い出が僕等を切り裂く前に
Taiyou no naka ni fuyu ga tokete sareba
Shounentachi wa hikari ni te wo nobashite hashiru
Mama, boku wo mitsukete ne
Omoide ga bokura wo kirisaku mae ni
as winter melts in the sun
boys will be out running and reaching for the light
oh mother please find me in that place
before the memories tear us into pieces
愛情にしがみついて
私達は何とか生きる事を学んで行く
いつも愛は去り、二度と戻れないけれど
Aijou ni shigamitsuite
Watashitachi wa nan to ka ikiru koto wo manande yuku
Itsumo ai wa sari, nidoto modorenai keredo
clinging to affection, we somehow do learn to live
(la la la la la la la)
in endless motion
never coming back, love will go
いつも私の側にいて
貴方をこんなにも愛しているの
静かな夜の中で私の吐息を感じて
いつまでもの夢さの中にいて
Itsumo watashi no soba ni ite
Anata wo konna ni mo itoshite iru no
Shizuka na yoru no naka de watashi no toiki wo kanjite
Itsumade mo no yumesa no naka ni ite
you’ll be there by my side
you may never know my devotion
feel my breath in the quiet night
live in vanity for ever
私の優しい感情に触れたくはない?
平安と確信の中、二人で生きていたいの
貴方が抱きしめてくれれば
Watashi no yasashii kanjou ni furetaku wa nai?
Heian to kakushin no naka, futari de ikite ita ino
Anata ga dakishimete kurereba
won’t you feel my gentle emotion
let us live in peace with conviction
if you’re here please hold me…..

    Love the keiko´s part… it´s so epic!!!

  2. May in July Says:

    Oh Gosh, forever the live version of Kajiura’s songs are the best. Keiko! >o<

  3. Onin Says:

    The live version of FJ is my personal favorite, each singer gave their powerful performances. Wakana in her melodic solos, Yuriko Kaida in her harmonizations, Kaori in her ‘lalalalalalalalala’, and Keiko in her epic descant part. I really really love their version!

  4. Wigati Martina Says:

    Yuki Kajiura is the best woman composer I ve ever known. She is amazing in creating her music, there re always full of emotions
    I love Keiko part 🙂

  5. Geegiasan Says:

    Anyone knows what are the lyrics in background during “I’ll be there by your side
    share your fears in the silent redemption
    touch my lips, hold me tight
    live in vanity for a while” ???

  6. mjphantomhive Says:

    i want to know the background lyrics too.it blends on the words that’s why it’s not clear.
