Fantaisie Sign

Une promenade et l’univers si loin
Après une cascade, son nom c’est toujours toi
Une escapade, la vie est dans les bois
Et puis une ballade, son sujet c’est toujours toi
Une promenade et l’univers si loin
Après une cascade, son nom c’est toujours toi

C ‘est comme le vert des champs, et
Comme un oiseau qui vole
C’est toujours toi
C’est toujours moi
Toujours le rocher de la nuit nue

Comme un enfant qui voile
Ton passé comme drôle
C’est toujours toi
C’est toujours moi
Sur les ailes de la joue du grand amour

Dans cette époque cybernique
Pleine de gens informatique
C’est la seul fantasy ici
Pour toujours
C’est toujours moi
C’est toujours toi

C’est toujours moi
C’est toujours toi
Toujours ce rocher de la nuit nue

Comme la si douce Montegu
Le bleu du ciel bien aperçu
C’est la seule fantasy ici
Pour toujours
C’est toujours toi
C’est toujours moi
Pour toujours
En dehors des jours
Et des jours
C’est toujours toi et moi

– Yoko Kanno and the Seatbelts, No Disc: Cowboy Bebop OST 2

Call Me Call Me

I close my eyes and I keep seeing things
Rainbow waterfalls, sunny liquid dreams
Confusion creeps inside me raining down
Got to get to you, but I don’t know how

Call me, call me
Let me know it’s alright
Call me, call me
Don’t you think it’s now time
Please won’t you call and
Ease my mind
Reasons for me to find you
Piece of mine
What can I do to get me to you?

I had your number quite some time ago
Back when we were young
But I had to go
Ten thousand years I’ve searched, it seems enough
Got to get to you, won’t you tell me how

Call me, call me
Let me know you are there
Call me, call me
I wanna know you still care
Come on now won’t you
Ease my mind
Reasons for me to find you
Peace of mind
What can I do to get me to you?

 

– Yoko Kanno and the Seatbelts, Blue: Cowboy Bebop OST 3

Somewhere in the Silence

Clouds of another life
Wash across the sunlight
Changing shape as they go by
Thought I saw your face there
But like them you just–

–disappear
Disappear into empty sky
Quietly
So removed from reason
Hey
Have you ever had to reason?
Hey

The eagle comes and goes
To somewhere much higher
When the silence grows
Can you hear it, sniper?

Visions and memories
Where some one once laid flowers
For the past and things to come
Thought you were gone
But I can feel you
So I –

–turn around
Turn around, yes, and there you are
Here again
Can you give it some meaning?
Hey
ask again, but you say nothing
Hey

Motion without sound
Ice inside the fire
The stillness in the storm
Silence hides the sniper

Eagles come and go
To someplace much higher
When the silence grows
Can you hear it, sniper?

What goes through your sniper’s mind?…

– “Somewhere in the Silence (Sniper’s Theme)”
Yoko Kanno, Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society

Can’t Take it In

Can’t close my eyes
They’re wide awake
Every hair on my body
Has got a thing for this place

Oh empty my heart!
I’ve got to make room for this feeling
It’s so much bigger than me

It could not be anymore beautiful
I can’t take it in
La, la, la…

Weightless in love
Unravelling
For all that’s to come
And all that’s ever been

We’re back to the part
With every shade under the sun
Let’s make it a good one

It could not be anymore beautiful
It could not be anymore beautiful
I can’t take it in
I can’t take it in
I can’t take it in…

All that I wonder…
All that I ever needed…

– “Can’t Take It In”
Imogen Heap, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe soundtrack (2005)

Audience of One

To play in front of thousands may be nice
To share my heart with strangers in the night
But there is an audience far greater
His entertainment is my delight

The night begins and I sing my song
The crowd clap their hands and they move right along
But there is audience who stays with me
He’s given me all that I am and I’ll ever be

He is the audience of one
I’m playing for my King
It’s for the audience of one
I lay down everything
Before the audience of one
My hopes, my dreams, my fears
I give the audience of one
My Saviour

You’re awesome in these songs, here in my heart
And I’d like the world to sing the songs I have to give
But the greatest song of all is written every day
It’s written in the things that I do and the way I live

It’s for the audience of one
I’m playing for my King
It’s for the audience of one
I lay down everything
Before the audience of one
My hopes, my dreams, my fears
I give the audience of one
My Saviour

Player

Quietly swimming in the stardust
The celestial searchlights
Shattering my wings
The steel blade of a knife

How many times has died in an attack
And was once again reborn
My imperishable soul

I play again without the rules
And call upon myself
The fire, the fire

And that is all I know
I do not seek another role

Today I am just a player
I do not regret anything

Quietly swimming in the stardust
The celestial searchlights…

– Yoko Kanno, Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society

Afterglow

Here I am
Lost in the light of the moon
That comes through my window

Bathed in blue
The walls of my memory divide
The thorns from the roses
It’s you and the roses

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow as I let you go
I will find my way when I see your eyes
Now I’m living in your afterglow

Here I am
Lost in the ashes of time
But who wants tomorrow?

In between
The longing to hold you again
I’m caught in your shadow
I’m losing control
My mind drifts away
We only have today

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow as I let you go
I will find my way, I will sacrifice
‘Til the blinding day when I see your eyes

Now I’m living in your afterglow
When the veils are gone
As I let you go
As I let you go

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow as I let you go
I will find my way, I will sacrifice
Now I’m living in your afterglow

Bathed in blue
The walls of my memory divides
The thorns from the roses
It’s you who is closest

I Will Find You

Hope is your survival
A captive path I lead

No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a long long time
No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a thousand years

(Mohican)
Nachgochema
Anetaha
Anachemowagan

No matter where you go
I will find you
In the place with no frontiers
No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a thousand years

(Cherokee)
Hale wú yu ga I sv
Do na dio sv I
Wi ja lo sv
Ha le wú yu
Do na dlo sv

No matter where you go
I will find you

– Clannad, The Last of the Mohicans

Lord of the Heavens

Lord of the heavens
I bow my knee and worship you
I stand before you and I am amazed
I see your beauty in everything you do

For you are my Saviour, Lord and King
You are the only one for me
You are the only one that I adore

In your Son atonement, sacrifice
Through His death
Redemption gives new life
And I reach out, receive your endless love

Lord of the heavens
I bow my knee and worship you
I stand before you and I am amazed
Lord of the heavens

– The Parachute Band, Adore (1999)
