Shakugan no Shana 1st Opening Theme – Hishoku no Sora

The Scarlet Sky
Vocals: Kawada Mami
Lyrics: Kawada Mami
Composition: Nakazawa Tomoyuki
Arrangement: Nakazawa Tomoyuki & Ozaki Takeshi

And when this sky comes again to dye me red, I’ll just advance by myself

Even the people passing by, even the things that have gotten lost
Will be vanishing memories someday
‘Strength’ flickering hotly, ‘weakness’ shaking faintly-
They’ll meet the same end after all

In such typical days, the sun, dissolving the red clouds and manifesting, makes the world crimson

Streaming in the wind, the tips of my hair, drawing a line and seeming to flow, pierce my foe
Severed feelings, brimming dreams-
For everything, now I just fulfill my mission with my hands

Another torch was lost and it quietly vanished somewhere
In reality, with unchanging days
But I definitely feel your warmth and pulse
That these are also the truth

And the crimsonness scatters dust, and turning my back to the setting sun, I’ll start now, c’mon

Why do I feel confusion and hesitation in my throbbing heart?
Hurry up and destroy the pain beginning to rage in vain

The sunburnt clouds blotting the sky are the wishes hidden inside of me and torturing me
My eyes hesitated and my tears appear, but I’ll change them into strength for tomorrow

I offered up everything and landed on earth; I cut the darkness with one swing of my sharp blade
Make the light deep in my chest sparkle all the time
Until I fulfill my mission by myself


Hishoku no Sora
Vocals: Kawada Mami

Soshite   kono sora   akaku somete   mata kuru toki   kono mi de   susumu dake

Surechigatte iku ‘hito’ mo   magire nakushita ‘mono’ mo
Itsuka wa   kie yuku toki
Atsuku yurugasu ‘tsuyosa’   hakanaku yureru ‘yowasa’
Shosen   onaji   mirai

Sonna nichiyou   kouka o tokashi   arawareru hi   kureru sekai

Kaze ni nabikase   sen o hiite   nagareru you na kamisaki   teki o sasu
Furikitta omoi   minagiru yume
Subete wa ima   kono te de   shimei   hatashite yuku dake

Mata hi ga hitotsu   otosare   sotto dokoka de   kieta
Genjitsu   kawaranu hibi
Dakedo tashika ni kanjiru   kimi no nukumori   kodou
Kore mo   shinjitsu da to

Soshite kurenai   koujin o maki   yuuhi o se ni   ima hajimaru   saa

Naze   takanaru kokoro ni   mayoi tomadoi   kanjiru no
Hayaku   itazura ni abaredasu   itami   kowashite

Sora ni nijinda   yaketa kumo wa   uchi ni himeta negai ga   kogashiteru
Tameratta hitomi   ukabu namida   demo ashita no   chikara ni kaete

Subete sasagete   maiorita chi   saeru yaiba hitotsu de   yami o kiru
Itsu datte mune no   oku no hikari   mabatakasete
Kono mi de   shimei   hatashite yuku made
