Lyrics

Lyrics in Kanji

ずっと前から決まっていたような
遠い昔からわかってたような
見えない線の 上をたどるように
導かれ出逢い 交差する Saison
背中合わせの 光と影のように
強くひかれる Mystification
耳元で囁き呼ぶ声に振り向けば
気付かぬうちに 開かれていたトビラ
少しの偶然と 必然をつなぐように
動き始めた二つの Histoire Ah
記憶の糸をたぐり寄せるように
パズルの隙間を埋めてくように
語り継がれる 運命にも似た
長い道のりの先にある Maintenant
一つ一つの刹那に刻まれた
揺らぐことない La clef a verite
手招きされるように 近ずけば見える謎
知らず知らずに 巻き込まれて行く
まだ知らない世界 新しくめくる度に
解き明かされる確かな Histoire Ah
いつか見た夢の奥で
いつも感じていた Reposer
どこか儚く 懐かしい声
耳元で囁き 呼ぶ声に振り向けば
気付かぬうちに 開かれていたトビラ
少しの偶然と 必然をつなぐように
動き始めた二つの Histoire Ah
ずっと果てなく続いて行く

Romaji Translation

English Translation

Zutto mae kara kimatteita you na
Tooi mukashi kara wakatteta you na
Feels like long ago this has already been decided
And since a distant past this has already been understood
Mienai sen no ue wo tadoru you ni
Michibikare deai kousa suru Saison
It was as though i was following the path on an invisible line
Guided to this meeting, a season of crossings
Senaka awase no hikari to kage no you ni
Tsuyoku hikareru Mystification
Like light and shadow, the two sides of a coin
Pulled together by a powerful attraction, Mystification
Mimimoto de sasayaki yobu koe ni furimuke ba
Kizukanu uchi ni hirakareteta TOBIRA
If i turn to face the voice calling to me whispering close to my ears
Unexpectedly i would have opened the doors
Sukoshi no guuzen to hitsuzen wo tsunagu you ni
Ugoki hajimeta futatsu no Histoire Ah
Just like tying together a little of chance and the inevitable
Bringing into motion the beginning of our shared story Ah
Kioku no ito wo taguri yoseru you ni
PAZURU no sukima wo umeteku you ni
Just like reeling in close the threads of my memories
Just like the gaps in the puzzle were being filled up
Kataritsugareru unmei ni mo nita
Nagai michi nori no saki ni aru Maintenant
Passed down to me in the same way as fate
Before the long journey there exists the present
Hitotsu hitotsu no setsuna ni kizamareta
Yuragu koto nai La clef a verite
It was etched into every moment
The unwavering key to the truth
Temaneki sareru you ni chikazukeba mieru nazo
Shirazu shirazu ni maki komarete yuku
Like it was beckoning me, a puzzle you can only see up close
Without realising, i got myself caught up in it
Mada shiranai sekai atarashiku mekuru tabi ni
Tokiakasareru tashikana Histoire Ah
It's a yet unknown world and whenever you flip to something new
It can all be explained, our certain story Ah
Itsuka mita yume no oku de
Itsumo kanjiteita Reposer
Doko ka hakanaku natsukashii koe
One day in a dream I will see it
I can always feel it as i rest
Coming from somewhere, a fleeting, familiar voice
Mimimoto de sasayaki yobu koe ni furimuke ba
Kizukanu uchi ni hirakareteta TOBIRA
If i turn to face the voice calling to me whispering close to my ears
Unexpectedly i would have opened the doors
Sukoshi no guuzen to hitsuzen wo tsunagu youni
Ugoki hajimeta futatsu no Histoire Ah
Just like tying together a little of chance and the inevitable
Bringing into motion the beginning of our shared story
Zutto hatenaku tsuzuite yuku Forever and never ending, we will keep going on
