ANGEL VOICE

Sung by: Fukuyama Yoshiki (Nekki Basara)

Written & Arranged by: Kanno Yoko

Lyrics by: K. Inojo

Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)

Version 2.00


Note: This is one of the most amazing songs for me. First, it features the amazing, multi-layered and brilliant song writing of Kanno Yoko. Second, it features lyrics by one of my faves K. Inojo (he did almost of all of the Macross 7 and Zetsuai 1989 song lyrics). Finally, it's performed by Fukuyama Yoshiki and Hummingbird for one of my favorite series of all time, Macross 7. This song actually comes from the Macross Dynamite 7 OVA series. Basara sings this song when he finally gets to meet the elusive great white spacewhale. No, I'm serious. In any case, this song is very inspiring to me, and along with the group I mentioned above, that makes it tops in Mina-P's book.


mimi o sumaseba kasuka ni kikoeru daro

hora     ano koe

kotoba nanka ja     tsutaerarenai nanika

itsumo kanjiru     are wa tenshi no koe

If you listen closely, you can hear it faintly

See! That voice...

Things like words can't convey anything

You can always feel it, that's the angel's voice


merodii wa kieru     yami ni shimikomu you ni

ekoo nokoshite

shizuka ni oriteku     diipu buruu no oorora ni

ore mo utauze

The melody vanishes, like it sinks into darkness

Leaving behind echoes

In the quietly descending deep blue aurora

I'm gonna sing, too


shinjiteita mono ga aru

baka da to iwareta keredo

kawaranakatta

ano hi no yume

There was something I believed in

They told me I was stupid but

It didn't change

My dream that day


ANGEL VOICE     mitsuketa no sa

chiheisen no mukou ni

kirari hikatta

omae no sugata wa yume ja nakatta

nagare nagareteikou

itsuka mata aouze

hitomi tojireba

itsumo kokoro no naka ni hibiku     ANGEL VOICE

ANGEL VOICE     I found it

Across the horizon

It glittered and shone

I didn't dream that I saw you

Let the stream flow by

Someday let's meet again

If I close my eyes

It will always resound in my heart     ANGEL VOICE


kokoro wa kawaru     keshiki to onaji you ni

shikatanai no sa

kamisama nante     dokoka kimagure dakara

ate ni suru na yo

The heart changes, like the landscape does

It can't be helped

God is somewhat capricious so

Don't rely on him


hashiritsuzuketeiyouze

tachidomaru no wa mada daro

tadoritsukitai

yami no mukou

Let's keep on running

You can't stop yet

I want to find my way

Beyond this darkness


ANGEL VOICE     kanjita no sa

haruka na mune no kodou

rizamu awasete

yatto kono basho de futari deaeta

omae no sono sugata

kono me ni yakitsukeru

hebii na yoru ni mo

kitto chikara ataetekureru     ANGEL VOICE

ANGEL VOICE    

I felt it

The far off heart beats

In the same rhythm

At last, we could meet at this place

Your figure

Burns itself onto my eye

And in the heavy night

It will surely give me strength     ANGEL VOICE


WOW OH OH     WOW OH OH     ...


mimi o sumaseba     itsumo kikoeru darou?

hora     ano koe     are wa no tenshi no koe

If you listen closely, can't you always hear it?

See! That voice, that's the angel's voice
