Duvet
(Opening Theme)

And you don't seem to understand,
A shame you seemed an honest man
And all the fears you hold so dear
Will turn to whisper in your ear.
And you know what they say might hurt you.
And you know that it means so much.
And you don't even feel a thing.

I am falling,
I am fading,
I have lost it all

And you don't seem the lying kind,
A shame that I can read your mind.
And all the things that I read there,
Candle-lit smile that we both share.
And you know I don't mean to hurt you.
But you know that it means so much.
And you don't even feel a thing.

I am falling,
I am fading,
I am drowning,
Help me to breathe

I am hurting,
I have lost it all,
I am losing
Help me to breathe...

A Distant Cry (Toi Sakebi)
(Ending Theme)

nan no tsumi mo nai hazu na no ni
nanraka no batsu wo uketeru
jibun de maita tane de mo nai no ni
sakimidareta hana tsumasareru

Although I must be innocent,
now I am punished.
I wasn't the one who sewed those seeds, but nevertheless
I have to pull up the flowers that bloomed from them.

shiranai koto to mo ienai ga
katabou katsuida oboe wa nai
jiyuu wo takaku kawasareta ki mo suru ga
kokoro made yasuku utta oboe wa nai

I can't say I didn't know about it,
but I don't remember taking any part in it.
I think my freedom cost me dearly,
but I don't remember selling my soul so cheaply.

Hey Hey kutabatte osaraba suru made
Hey Hey dare no te ni mo kakaranai
tooi yoru wo urotsuite-iru
shiranai darou eien no narazu mono-tachi wo

Hey Hey Until I die and say farewell...
Hey Hey... no one can touch me.
You probably don't know
the eternal outlaws prowling in the distant night.

yurusenai shiuchi de mo nai ga
iyaseru kizu de mo aru mai
nakesou na yoru ni wa onna daite
kono chinke na shaba kara taka tobi sa

The act wasn't inexcusable
but the wounds from it aren't curable.
On nights when I almost want to cry, I hold a woman
and fly high away from this petty, corrupt world.

Hey Hey kutabatte osaraba suru made
Hey Hey dare no te ni mo kakaranai
tooi yoru wo urotsuite-iru
shiranai darou eien no narazu mono-tachi wo

Hey Hey Until I die and say farewell...
Hey Hey... no one can touch me.
You probably don't know
the eternal outlaws prowling in the distant night.

nan no tsumi mo nai hazu na no ni
nanraka no batsu wo uketeru
jiyuu wo takaku kawasareta ki mo suru ga
kokoro made yasuku uritobasu hara wa nai...

Although I must be innocent,
now I am punished.
I think my freedom cost me dearly,
but I don't have the guts to sell my soul so cheaply...

Signal of Lonliness (Kodoku no Shigunaru)
(insert song in episode 13: "Ego")

aisuru koto no imi sae mada
shiranu mama
daredemonai dareka to dokoka de
tsunagarou to shite-iru
atedonai yoru ni kimi wa
okuri-tsudzukeru kodoku no Shigunaru

Not yet knowing
what it means to love,
I try to connect somewhere
with someone, anyone.
On aimless nights, you
keep sending out a signal of loneliness.

kizutsuku koto no imi nado mada
shiranu mama
daredemonai dareka to nanika de
tsunagarou to shite'ru
samayou yoru ni kimi wa
machi-tsudzukeru kodoku no Shigunaru

Not yet knowing
what it means to be hurt and such,
I try to be connected by something
to someone, anyone
In the wandering night, you
keep waiting; a signal of loneliness.

Ah... nani wo motomete kimi wa soko ni iru no darou ka
Ah... nani wo osorete kimi wa soko ni iru no darou ka
Ah... donna mirai wo kimi wa hikiukeru no darou ka

Ah... I wonder why are you out there searching for something?
Ah... I wonder why are you out there afraid of something?
Ah... I wonder what kind of future you'll have?

aitai aisuru hito ni
aitai no sa aisubeki hito ni
aitai no sa
hito wa daredemo hayaku itsudemo

I want to find the one I love.
I want to find the one I'm supposed to love.
I want to find her.
Anyone is OK. Quick... Anytime...

taisetsu na mono ni itsuka moshimo
kidzuita toki ni
daredemonai jibun ni hito wa
deaeru no darou ka
mada minu ashita ni kimi wa
uchiukete'ru kodoku no Shigunaru

Someday, when I've realized
what is precious,
will I, who am no one in particular,
be able to meet someone?
In the tomorrow which is still unseen, you
beat out a signal of loneliness.

Ah... nani wo motomete kimi wa soko ni iru no darou ka
Ah... nani wo osorete kimi wa soko ni iru no darou ka
Ah... donna mirai wo bokura wa hikiukeru no darou ka

Ah... I wonder why are you out there searching for something?
Ah... I wonder why are you out there afraid of something?
Ah... I wonder what kind of future we'll have?

aitai aisuru hito ni
aitai no sa aisubeki hito ni
aitai no sa
hito wa daredemo hayaku itsudemo

I want to find the one I love.
I want to find the one I'm supposed to love.
I want to find her.
Anyone is OK. Quick... Anytime...

aitai aisuru hito ni
aitai no sa aisubeki hito ni
aitai no sa
hito wa daredemo hayaku itsudemo

I want to find the one I love.
I want to find the one I'm supposed to love.
I want to find her.
Anyone is OK. Quick... Anytime...
