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

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

Dear John

Days of night slip through my mind
In a silent motionless sky
Paralyzed and motionless
All things falter
Somewhere back
I lost myself
So far deep inside of you
Everything’s become too much
So deep, so weak
Where did I go?

Images of falling light
Move across the hollow sky
I see movement after all
Calling, falling
Remember you’re not the only one
To feel this way, ‘cause I’m one
Who has also had enough
So long, dear John
I’m gonna go
