Ring A Bell

Reaching out for no man’s land
To take a breath and take a chance
I’d walk a thousand nights to change the world
Where to go, when to stop, who to trust, what to say
I found them all
I just need someone to share

Snarl in the dusk everyday to carry on
Ain’t so strong
I ain’t so strong to go on
Living in the past is not the way to live
I wish you could hear me say
That I miss you

Why were we there back to back
Why were we there face to face
I must be the light when you’re in the dark
If you lose me somewhere and your tears are in the air
I will ring a bell until you feel me by your side

Looking up into the sky
Looking for the reason
Why I’m here and why you can’t be here
Who’s to hate, who’s to blame, who’s to hug, who’s to love
Who decides?
Why can’t we be the same

Trying to believe
Walking down the lonesome road
Ain’t so far
I ain’t so far from you
Staying the way you are means solitude
I wish you were here
And shook off my fear

Why were we there back to back
Why were we there face to face
I must be the light when you’re in the dark
If I lose you somewhere and I’m still hanging in there
I will ring a bell until you feel me by your side

The world has been in a mix too long
There’s no peace when you’re at war
Heads or tails, you and I, light and dark, ups and downs
What is there in the middle, what’s there to divide us
If you’re hurt, cry and say it
Can’t you see you’re my other half

Why were we there back to back
Why were we there face to face
I must be the light when you’re in the dark
If you lose me somewhere and your tears are in the air
I will ring a bell until you feel me by your side

Kane wo narashite

kimi to hanarete boku wo sagashite
ikusen no yo wo aruita
nani wo mezashite dare wo shinjite

yuuyami ni wa kiba wo mu kedo tsuyokunai sou tsuyoku wa nai
kimi ni se wo mukete hisashiku manten no hoshizora ga sabishii

hikari wa kage no kage wa hikari no

yurushita mono to yurusareta mono wa
onaji kizu wakeatte

asamoya ni kodama suru kane tooku nai sou tooku wa nai
kimi ga kimi rashiku aru koto sore wa mata kodoku tomo iu

hikari wa kage no kage wa hikari no
hatemade tsuite yuku no darou
kumo ga kagette sora ga naitara

sekai wa shiro ka kuro heiwa ka arasoi
heads or tails you and I light and dark ups and downs

Ring a Bell

I left you and searched for myself
I walked for a thousand nights
What was I aiming for, who do I believe?
I swore an oath but again I wavered

The darkness dulls my fangs, but I’m not strong, no, I have no strength
Your back has been turned for a long time, and this entire starry sky is lonely

Light is shadow and shadow is light
Following until the end
If I have been living while smiling
I’ll ring a bell so that you will know

Things I forgave and things that were forgiven
They share the same scars
This sadness above and below, someday
Will be healed in paradise

The bell that echoes in the morning haze, it’s not far, no, it is not far
You’re being yourself, and that means being lonely as well

Light is shadow, shadow is light
Following until the end
If the clouds grow dark and the sky weeps
I’ll ring a bell as I search for you

Is the world white or black? Peaceful or full of strife?
heads or tails you and I light and dark ups and downs
At the center we will someday meet; shall we join hands?

Light is shadow and shadow is light
Following until the end
If I have been living while smiling
I’ll ring a bell so that you will know
