Friend's
Lyrics, Music, & Sung by: PROJECT ARMS
    (Canna Nobutoshi, Miki Shin'ichirou, Ueda Yuuji, & Takayama Minami)

Version 1.00

Note: The soft, beautiful ballad B-side to the driving techno single, Owaranai Yume no Naka de. PROJECT ARMS is the name of a late night anime, and a singing/songwriting group composed of the four lead seiyuu (voice actors) of that show. All four are excellent singers: Canna Nobutoshi has several solo albums under his belt; Miki Shin'ichirou is part of the pop seiyuu group Weiss; Takayama Minami is one half of the Top 10 hit group Two-Mix; Ueda Yuuji is one of my absolute favorite seiyuu singers. And yet, they still amazed me with this absolutely beautiful ballad. It's not just good for a seiyuu group; it's just plain a great song. I highly recommend it to anyone, seiyuu fan or not.


kudaranai koto de     warai attari
sasai na koto kara     kenka mo ikutsu ka shita ne

We always laughed together     about stupid little things
From those petty trifles     we also fought countless times


Tears     nakitai toki ni wa     naite ii yo
Pain     tsurai toki wa     denwa shite sugu ni yuku yo

Tears     When you feel like crying     it's okay to cry
Pain     When things are tough     call me and I'll be right there


afuredasu     itooshii kimochi ga
Run...     hashiridasu ano hi no bokura e
yasashii toki dakishime     hikari no naka mitsumeyou
ashita e tsuzuku mirai o

Overflowing     my tender feelings for you
Run...     Start running towards the way we were that day
Embrace those tender times     Look for it inside of the light
Our future that continues on tomorrow


isogashii hibi o     tada yarisugosu
sonna mainichi wa     nanda ka totemo setsunai

Just let yourself go past     those busy days
That daily life     was somehow really sad


Sky     aoi sora o tobu     kami hikouki
Dream     yume o miru     sukitootta kimi no hitomi

Sky     Fly into the blue skies     a paper airplane
Dream     Look at a dream     I see straight through your eyes


boku-tachi o tsunagu     kokoro no ito
Feel...     kanjiru yo     mune no itami sae
donna arashi ga kitemo     norikoerareru hazu sa
shinjiteiru yo
Forever Friend's...

We're connected together     by the string between our hearts
Feel...     I can feel it     even the pain in your heart
No matter what storm may come     we can overcome it
I believe that
Forever Friend's...


Sky     aoi sora o tobu     kami hikouki
Dream     yume o miru     sukitootta kimi no hitomi

Sky     Fly into the blue skies     a paper airplane
Dream     Look at a dream     I see straight through your eyes


ano hi kara     bokura wa kawaranai
Wind...     itsumademo     onaji kaze o uke
tomo ni ikiteru akashi     karadajuu de kanjite
aruiteyukou
Forever Friend's

From that day on     we haven't changed
Wind...     Forever and always     we take the same wind
I can feel the proof that we're both alive     throughout my body
Let's walk on
Forever Friend's



Lyrics belong to PROJECT ARMS and GIZA, taken from the Owaranai Yume no Naka de single, GZCA-2034 (track 2). Not like the words make any sense if you haven't heard the song, anyway.
