Track Name: エム
   時が過ぎてくのが、惜しいくらい、怖いくらいに
   全ての神経が、研ぎすまされた体中
   陳腐な言葉しか出てこないじゃないか
   つないで
   カメラの中には、おさめられないもの

   トンネル抜ける
   街へ向かうよ  
   会いたい会いたい人の住む街へ
   変わらないない想いがずっと 
   吸い込まれそうな青だ

  
   堂々巡りの日々よ
   堂々巡りの朝昼夜
   進めてるのかな
   でもやめないやめない見える
   照りつける日差しが、焦がすくらい、焦がすくらいの
   カメラの中には、おさめられないもの

   トンネル抜ける
   街へ向かうよ  
   会いたい会いたい人の住む街へ
   変わらないない想いがずっと 
   吸い込まれそうな青だ

遠くが近くなる
Track Name: flying
he makes me——— fly high
and we dance——— together
isn’t this so good?———so good?
will this be a dream? ——— don’t go away
mmm———away
don’t go away——— away

i want him to stay here
with me forever
i want him to stay here
with me forever
step inside――—these sensations
step inside――—they take me away

sweetness, sweetness
will it disappear again?
sweetness, sweet
will it disappear again?

fly to him, come on i fly high
take it, here
can i offer?

fly to him, come on i fly higher
take it, here
can i offer?

fly to him
fly to him
fly to him

i close my, my eyes and i can feel you
inside

Track Name: the lights are extinguished
I said to my soul, be still, and let the dark come upon you
As, in a theatre, the lights are extinguished, for the scene to be
changed
With a movement of darkness on darkness
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing

** taken from ''East Coker'' by T.S.Eliot
Track Name: come out with me
when you call my name
when you talk to me as if there’s no boundary
and i look upon the sky
we are free

when you walk with me
passing by the canal
the grey buildings
through the nightfall
i feel you close

i’ve got my eyes on you
there’s no one else
i’m falling for you
crazier
i’ve got my eyes on you
nothing more
i’m falling, falling for you

come out with me
tonight in the breeze
come out with me

the heat from the sun still remains


when you call my name
when you talk to me as if there’s no boundary
and i look upon the sky
we are free

when you walk with me
passing by the canal
the grey buildings
through the nightfall
i feel you close

i’ve got my eyes on you
there’s no one else
i’m falling for you
crazier
i’ve got my eyes on you
nothing more
i’m falling, falling for you

come out with me
tonight in the breeze
come out with me
Track Name: valentine
I’ve been looking for
I’ve been waiting for, for this

But you’re leaving so
But you’re leaving so soon

Too many neon lights slurred
But I only heard your voice

Passing strangers
Passing colors with you
Through the signs
Through the streets with you

  Too many neon lights slurred
But I only heard your voice


Lighting a cigarette
Flare of the match
It’s getting dark
Inhaling the smoke
I see it come out from your mouth
Put your lips on mine
Tokyo nights
Still
Colours are glaring
Track Name: hnh
i hear it, now, it’s gone.
before you vanish, remind me

herenowhere, you can always find me
herenowhere, wave in silence, calling to you

lights are out, they ride seaward on the waves
the moments of the key, i put, herenowhere, wave in silence,
calling to you
Track Name: moonlight
    Blue in the lights
You arm yourself
Confused
Elusive pain
I know your pain

Allow yourself
Beside me
I find you
A fragile star

Your skin lit by the moonlight
For the drops you have shed
For the sparkle by the sea
As we touched the golden sand
For the lover
For the lover

Fade away
Come back
Like a wave
Still beats
If you listen carefully

Blue in the lights
You arm yourself
Confused
Elusive pain
I know your pain

Allow yourself
Beside me
I find you
A fragile star

Your skin lit by the moonlight
For the drops you have shed
For the sparkle by the sea
As we touched the golden sand
For the lover, lover
The moon kept spinning
Fade away, come back like a wave
Still beats if you listen carefully
Fade away, come back like a wave
Still beats if you listen carefully

Hidden inside
Ecstatic drum
Track Name: typhoon
台風
   雨の中を走るわ 渦巻いて走るわ
   窓から外見れば
   んー守られた気分
   ここは安全

   Here comes, banbanban
ヒュルルう~ルラ~ライ
   My heart goes, banbanban
Typhoon, don don di don   

何だろう
   騒いで、胸騒ぎがして
   耳澄ます
   ああ、いつから
   Tell me
I’ve lost the wilderness in me

They go, banbanban
ヒュルルう~ルラ~ライ
   My heart goes, banbanban
Typhoon, don don di don 
Track Name: slow-high
lie down
be as you are
passion
lies here
leading you
the way
the way

through your amplifier
untamed fire
continue, continue
burning still
soundless light
follow it, you follow it
till it runs out
