Mori no juujiro

shiroi hibari ga utatteru wa izumi no hotori
sore wa daichi wo tataeteru mori no uta yo

shirazu shirazu kakato narashi odoridasu deshou?
dakara konoha mo kaze ni notte tebyoushi suru

koko wa mori no juujiro
kitto tabi suru hito wa
minna tachidomaru no mirai he no michi
tashikameru tame

kaze yo hikari yo kotoritachi yo odorimashou yo
ima wo ikiru no kanashimi wo yume ni kaete

kanarazu mitsukeru wa suishoiro no yume
sono toki wo shinjiteru itsumo…

kikimimi tateru USAGItachi ni tsutaete oku no
yami ga kita nara kono uta de inorinasai

koko wa seinaru basho
sou yo tabi suru inochi ga
kizu wo iyashi nagara hikari abite tsubasa yasumeru no

tsurugi oite itoshii tomo yo odorimashou yo
ima wo ikiru no saki no koto wo osorenaide

kaze yo hikari yo itoshii tomo yo tabidachimashou
ima wo ikiru no mienai chikara mune ni himete

Forest Crossroad

The white skylark is singing near the spring
That’s the song of the forest that praises the earth

Unconsciously, do your heels ring out as you begin to dance?
That’s why even the leaves riding on the wind are beating time

Here is the crossroads of the forest
Where certainly the travelers
All stop, to ascertain
Their path to the future

Wind, light, and the little birds; let’s dance together!
Living right now, change your sadness in dreams

I’ll certainly find it, a crystal-colored dream
I believe in that time, always…

Tell the rabits with their straining, upright ears
If darkness comes, please pray this song

Here is a holy place
Yes, a life that travels
Though your wounds have healed, bask in the sun and rest your wings

Leave behind your sword and dance with your beloved companions
Now lives, please don’t fear the future

Let’s begin a trip with the wind, the light, and beloved companions
Now lives, hiding an invisible power in your heart

森の十字路

白い雲雀が歌ってるわ 泉のほとり
それは大地を讃えてる 森の歌よ

しらずしらず踵鳴らし踊りだすでしょう?
だから木の葉も風に乗って 手拍子する

ここは森の十字路
きっと旅する人は
みんな立ち止まるの 未来への道
確かめるため

風よ光よ小鳥たちよ 踊りましょうよ
今を生きるの 悲しみを夢に変えて

必ず見つけるわ 水晶色の夢
そのときを信じてる いつも…

聞き耳立てるウサギたちに 伝えておくの
闇が来たなら この旋律(うた)で祈りなさい

ここは 聖なる場所
そうよ 旅する生命(いのち)が
傷を癒しながら 光浴びて 翼休めるの

剣(つるぎ)置いていとしい友よ 踊りましょうよ
今を生きるの 先のことを怖れないで

風よ光よいとしい友よ 旅立ちましょう
今を生きるの 見えない力胸に秘めて
