LION
jpn ライオン
by May'n / Megumi Nakajima
as Sheryl Nome / Ranka Lee
from Macross Frontier (2nd OP)
hoshi wo mawase sekai no mannaka de
kushami sureba dokoka no mori de chou ga ranbu
kimi ga mamoru doa no kagi detarame
hazukashii monogatari
nameatte mo raion wa tsuyoi

Turn the stars at the centre of the world.
If you sneeze, a butterfly in a forest somewhere will dance.
The door you guard has a useless key.
It's an embarrassing story.
Though they often lick one another, lions are strong.

ikinokoritai
ikinokoritai
mada ikiteitaku naru
seiza no michibiki de ima, mitsumeatta

I want to survive.
I want to survive.
I still can't stop wanting to live.
Guided by the constellations, our eyes met.

ikinokoritai
tohou ni kurete
kirari kareteyuku
honki no karada misetsukeru made
watashi nemuranai

I want to survive.
I am at a loss,
Gently withering away.
But until I show you my true self,
I will not sleep.

kaze wa yagate higashi e mukau darou
koukiatsu kono hoshi no hyouga wo osou
sasoi mizu wo nonda mune ga tsurai
toomaki na monogatari
kajiriau hone no oku made

Will the winds blow east one day?
High atmospheric pressure attacks this planet's frozen rivers.
My chest hurts from the sip of alluring water I took.
It's a story seen from a distance.
Gnaw at each other till the bones.

ikinokoritai
ikinokoritai
mada ikiteitaku naru
seiza no michibiki de ima, mitsumeatta

I want to survive.
I want to survive.
I still can't stop wanting to live.
Guided by the constellations, our eyes met.

ikinokoritai
tohou ni kurete
kirari kareteyuku
honki no karada misetsukeru made
watashi nemuranai

I want to survive.
I am at a loss,
Gently withering away.
But until I show you my true self,
I will not sleep.

nani shini umareta no
nani shini koko ni iru

What were we born to do?
What are we here to do?

ikinokoritai
umaranai hizu
hikari osoreteta
yurusaretai inochi ga ima, hikareatta

I want to survive.
This permanent scar.
I used to fear the light.
The lives seeking redemption were drawn to one another.

samayoi hatete
kimi no tonari de hoterishizumetai
honki no karada misetsukeru made
watashi nemuranai

I want to stop prowling,
And settle down next to you bashfully.
Until I show you my true self,
I will not sleep.

ikinokoritai
gakebbuchi de ii
kimi wo aishiteru
mezametai inochi ga ima, hikareatta

I want to survive.
Even as a nobody.
I love you.
The lives waiting for awakening were drawn to one another.

kyouki ni kaete
inori sasagu yo
kimi wo aishiteru
seiza no michibiki de...

In place of my wildness,
I shall offer a prayer.
I love you.
Constellations, please guide me...

ikinokoritai
mada ikitetai
kimi wo aishiteru
honki no kokoro misetsukeru made
watashi nemuranai

I want to survive.
I still want to live.
I love you.
Until I show you my true feelings,
I will not sleep.
