CODE GEASS Lelouch of the Rebellion Insert Song – Callin’

I’ve read on Japanese websites (read: non-official sources) that Callin’ is supposed to be “Suzaku”‘s theme from Code Geass. In my opinion, it has a bit of his spirit and definitely does not suit Lelouch’s personality. Come to think of it, this song does first play during the Lelouch/C.C./Suzaku tag team battle.

Callin’
Vocals: Sakai Mikio
Lyrics: Sakai Mikio
Composition: Sakai Mikio

So I’ll shout for nothing but love, because no one is alone
I mustn’t turn my back on calling out our respective names

It’s not too late to grip our hands together
We no longer need a tomorrow in which we struggle against and hurt each other

So that the sun will smile in this narrowed sky
Let’s try removing the clouds, one person at a time

The confusion was born in the very midst of conflict; the absurdity seizes me, but…

So I’ll shout for nothing but love, because no one is alone
I mustn’t turn my back on calling out our respective names

Like how the little droplets become an ocean before long
I’m sure our thoughts, too, should be able to become one

Please don’t be afraid to imagine; I repeatedly understand and misunderstand, but…

So I’ll dash through nothing but the “present”, ahead of living my dreams
The tender future is spreading its hands and waiting for your smile

That’s right, no one is alone; if we call out each other’s name
Then it’ll surely shine in the colors of the rainbow, right? The bridge that connects our hearts
So I’ll dash through nothing but the “present”, ahead of living my dreams
The tender future is spreading its hands and waiting for your smile


Callin’
Vocals: Sakai Mikio

Dakara ai o sakebu shika nai   dare mo ga hitori ja nai kara
Sorezore no na o yobiau koto ni   senaka o mukecha ikenai

Ososugiru koto wa nai   te o nigiriau koto
Ubaiai kizutsukeau   asu wa mou hitsuyou nai

Semaku natta kono sora de   taiyou ga hohoemu tame ni
Bokura hitori hitori ga kumo o dokashite miyou

Arasoi no sanaka ni umareta mayoi   fujouri ga boku o tsukamu kedo…

Dakara ai o sakebu shika nai   dare mo ga hitori ja nai kara
Sorezore no na o yobiau koto ni   senaka o mukecha ikenai

Chiisa na sono shizuku ga   yagate umi ni naru you ni
Bokura no omoi mo kitto   hitotsu ni nareru hazu sa

Souzousuru koto o kowagaranaide   rikai, gokai kurikaesu kedo…

Dakara “ima” o kakeru shika nai   yume o ikiru sono saki ni
Yasashii mirai ga te o hirogete   kimi no egao o matteru

Sou sa dare mo ga hitori ja nai   sono namae o yobiaeba
Kitto nanairo ni kagayaku darou   kokoro tsunagu kakehashi ga
Dakara “ima” o kakeru shika nai   yume o ikiru sono saki ni
Yasashii mirai ga te o hirogete   kimi no egao o matteru

  1. Thank you for your translations as always!

    Sakai Mikio himself admitted in the Newtype interview that Picaresque and Callin’ were meant to be Lelouch and Suzaku’s image songs respectively.

  2. I really love this song… pity it’s suzaku’s theme rather than lelouchs’ 😄 (love for lelouch~)
