Fullmetal Alchemist 1st Opening Theme – Melissa

Melissa here refers to the plant.

Melissa
Vocals: Porno Graffiti
Lyrics: Shindo Haruichi
Composition: ak.homma
Arrangement: ak.homma & Porno Graffiti

Rip apart the memories of those distant days with your hands
End the breath of my sadness
C’mon, pierce through my chest that pined for love

Looking at the sky where tomorrow should come, I can’t manage my heart that is just lost
The birds by my side took off— I wonder if they were able to find light somewhere

Hey, won’t you let me ride on your back, too?
Then abandon me at the highest place and keep me away from kindness

Rip apart the memories of those distant days with your hands
End the breath of my sadness
C’mon, pierce through my chest that pined for love

I saw off birds in dusk; the wind strokes me as I just crawl the ground
I won’t say that I want wings; I want to become a Melissa leaf dancing in air at least

I’ve already tried very hard to stand still
But there’s probably no answer, right? As if I’m aimless in this wind

Lock the door with your hands— You won’t hesitate, right?
Even if I’m wrong, c’mon, let it end with the sound of a lock falling
So that it will never open again

An unsalvageable soul is washed away and disappears
At the instant when it disappears, it shines faintly
Now I’ll create a night with a full moon

Kimi no te de kirisaite   tooi hi no kioku o
Kanashimi no iki no ne o tomete kure yo
Saa   ai ni kogareta mune o tsuranuke

Asu ga kuru hazu no sora o mite   mayou bakari no kokoro moteamashite iru
Katawara no tori ga habataita   dokoka hikari o mitsukerareta no kana

Naa   omae no se ni ore mo nosete kurenai ka?
Soshite   ichiban takai toko de okizari ni shite yasashisa kara toozakete

Kimi no te de kirisaite   tooi hi no kioku o
Kanashimi no iki no ne o tomete kure yo
Saa   ai ni kogareta mune o tsuranuke

Tori o yuuyami ni miokutta   chi o hau bakari no ore o kaze ga nazeru
Hane ga hoshii to wa iwanai sa   semete chuu ni mau merissa no ha ni naritai

Mou   zuibun to tachitsukushite mita kedo
Tabun kotae wa nai no darou   kono kaze ni mo iku ate nado nai you ni

Kimi no te de kagi o kakete   tamerai nado nai darou
Machigatte mo   nido to aku koto no nai you ni
Saa   jou no ochiru oto de owarasete

Sukui no nai tamashii wa nagasarete kieyuku
Kiete iku shunkan ni wazuka hikaru
Ima   tsuki ga michiru yoru o umidasu no sa
