One Thousand and One Nights
Vocals: See-Saw
Lyrics: Kajiura Yuki
Composition: Kajiura Yuki
Arrangement: Kajiura Yuki

I leave this place and think about the road I walk on
The sky is still early in the evening, leaving colors behind in the clouds
The child next to me is singing the same song for the third time already
Only repeating the last part forever, unable to recall the ending words

I didn’t need a beginning or ending, your eyes whispered
What sort of memories do I search for to reach deep into your chest?
The days you speak of, which were too long, seem like one night’s dream
And I can’t believe in its ending words, the time of awakening is still far

Please don’t erase the one thousand nights, I still can’t stand up from here yet

A simply silent Scheherazade can’t move anyone’s heart
No matter how many nights she spends away, she can’t even tell of one romance
Where did the bedtime stories that couldn’t turn into warmth disappear to?
And I only wanted to remember your kind words at least

Please don’t erase the one thousand nights, I’ll stand up from my seat on my lonely path

I only wanted to remember your kind words at least
One thousand nights that disappeared into one night…


Senya Ichiya

Kono basho o dete aruku michi no koto o kangaeru
Sora wa mada hayai yuugata   kumo ni iro o nokoshite
Tonari no kodomo wa onaji uta mou sando mo utatteru
Owaru kotoba omoidasezu   saigo dake zutto kurikaeshite

Hajime mo owari mo iranakatta   kimi no me ga tsubuyaita
Donna kioku o sagashitara mune no fukami e todoku no darou
Nagasugita   kimi no iu hibi wa hitoyo no yume no you de
Owaru kotoba shinjirarenai   mezame no toki wa mada tooi

Sen no yoru o kesenaide mada koko wo tatenai

Dare no kokoro mo ugokasenai tada no mukuchi na Shierazaado
Ikutsu no yoru o kasanete mo hitotsu no koi sae katarenai
Nukumori ni mo narenakatta nemonogatari wa doko e kiete
Kimi no yasashii kotoba dake semete oboete okitakatta

Sen no yoru o kesenaide hitori no michi ni seki o tatsu

Yasashii kotoba dake semete oboete okitakatta
Hitotsu no yoru ni kieta sen no yoru o…

  1. The official english title of this song, according to the opening credits, is “A Thousand and One Nights”

  2. It’s just my preference of interpretation. In this case, I used the relevant phrases from the lyrics to make up the title.

  3. It’s misleading and exacberating the problem of people not knowing the proper names of the songs =/

  4. The proper name of the song would be the original Japanese title, the romaji by which I expect people to locate songs on this website.

  5. There’s nothing wrong with different song names to the english dubs, some of them are really bad, and this seems conjoined, flowing and making sense. Really good!
