DARKER THAN BLACK -Ryusei no Gemini- 1st Opening Theme – Tsukiakari no Michishirube

A part of the song caught my attention. It sounded awfully familiar.
The two clips for comparison:

Tsukiakari no Michishirube

Yuzurenai Negai, opening theme from Magic Knight Rayearth

The Moonlight’s Guiding Sign
Vocals: Stereopony
Lyrics: AIMI
Composition: AIMI
Arrangement: Stereopony & BOND×mw

The each unanswered day-
The time that’s simply passing by-
What will happen beyond now?
I don’t know…

I was confused
By the loneliness of nights deeper than the dark
I want someone to notice me now…
Because I want to escape from here

The morning glow is visible from the window
A sound reverberates in my room
Woken by the alarm
I dash out of my dimly-lit house
Inside of my bag
I packed the regular stuff, not changing a thing
Then I head to the usual place

Words that someone said
Make me worried and confused
And because I don’t want to contest them
I can’t say anything
I have dreams and ideals
But only my feelings go ahead of me
And the reality is looking at me
From the behind all the time

Hey, someone, tell me
Is everyone like that?
That they ‘feel it’s good enough
if they’re happy today’
When I was young
They certainly existed
I pursued those dreams
But that’s also a distant memory

The each unanswered day-
The time that is simply passing by-
What will happen beyond now?
I don’t know…
The moonlight’s guiding sign
Reaches me over the clouds
Illuminate the road that I must advance on
No matter how broken today looks

No matter what happens
No matter what happens
Because I want to believe
Because I’ll recall the distant memories of that day
Please don’t forget, carve it into your chest

Because the answer is something
That definitely exists inside of yourself
Don’t give up
Don’t stop living strong
Even when it’s too sad
And you can’t advance forward
On us who suffered and walked together
The wind blows
Endlessly

Kotae no nai manichi ga
Tada sugite yuku jikan ga
Kore kara saki dou naru no darou?
Wakaranai…

Yami yori mo fukai yoru no kodoku ni
Madowasareteta
Dareka ni ima kizuite hoshii…
Koko kara nigedashitai kara

Mado kara mieru asayake
Heya ni narihibiku oto
Araamu ni okosarete
Usugurai naka   ie tobidasu yo
Kaban no naka ni wa
Nani mo kawaranai heibon tsumekonde
Soshite itsumo no basho e

Dareka ga itta kotoba ga
Ki ni natte   madowasarete
Arasoitaku nante nai kara
Nani mo ienai
Yume ya risou wa aru keredo
Kimochi bakari saki ni itte
Genjitsu ga zutto ushiro kara
Boku o miteru

Nee dareka oshiete
Minna sou na no kana?
Kyou ga shiawase nara
Sore de ii to omoeru tte
Osanai koro ni wa
Tashika ni atta yo
Yume o oikaketeta
Demo sore mo tooi kioku

Kotae no nai mainichi ga
Tada sugite iku jikan ga
Kore kara saki dou naru no darou?
Wakaranai…
Tsukiakari no michishirube
Kumo o koe boku ni todoke
Susumu beki michi o terashite yo
Kyou ga donna ni kowaresou de mo

Nani ga atte mo
Nani ga atte mo
Shinjitetai kara
Ano hi no tooi kioku   yobisamasu kara
Wasurenaide ne   mune ni kizamitsuke

Kotae wa jibun no naka ni
Kanarazu aru mono da kara
Akiramenaide
Tsuyoku ikiru koto o yamenaide
Kanashisugite
Mae ni susumenai toki de mo
Tomo ni nayami ayunda bokura ni
Kaze wa fuku
Doko made de mo

答えのない毎日が
ただ過ぎてゆく時間が
これから先どうなるのだろう?
わからない…

闇よりも深い夜の孤独に
惑わされてた
だれかに今気づいてほしい…
ここから逃げ出したいから

窓から見える朝焼け
部屋に鳴り響く音
アラームに起こされて
薄暗い中 家飛び出すよ
カバンの中には
何も変わらない平凡詰め込んで
そしていつもの場所へ

だれかが言った言葉が
気になって 惑わされて
争いたくなんてないから
何も言えない
夢や理想はあるけれど
気持ちばかり先に行って
現実がずっと後ろから
ボクを見てる

ねぇだれか教えて
みんなそうなのかな?
今日が幸せなら
それでいいと思えるって
幼いころには
確かにあったよ
夢を追いかけてた
でもそれも遠い記憶

答えのない毎日が
ただ過ぎていく時間が
これから先どうなるのだろう?
わからない…
ツキアカリのミチシルベ
雲を越えボクに届け
進むべき道を照らしてよ
今日がどんなに壊れそうでも

何があっても
何があっても
信じてたいから
あの日の遠い記憶 呼び覚ますから
忘れないでね 胸に刻みつけ

答えは自分の中に
必ずあるものだから
あきらめないで
強く生きることをやめないで
悲しすぎて
前に進めない時でも
共に悩み歩んだぼくらに
風は吹く
どこまででも

  1. where’s the other song snippet from…?

  2. Thanks for this, I knew it sounded familiar but I hadn’t seen the older anime. At least I have this feeling Stereophony “got” it from a 90’s (or maybe 80’s..?) anime.

  3. the sound clips…they DO sound similar owo;;

  4. Come to think of it, they do sound really alike. o.o
    And now I finally get to know the name of my favourite Magic Knight Rayearth song, lol.

  5. Omg, that’s exactly what I thought when I first heard the song – that the part sounded just like in MKR’s Yuzurenai Negai.
    I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who thought of that… 😄

  6. So, these are the official lyrics, then?

  7. Awesome, That’s what I thought too the moment I heard this song. I even typed “Tsukiakari no michishirube yuzurenai negai” on google to see what would happen, and it lead me to this site!
