ひとかけら | Hitokakera

Title: ひとかけら
Romaji: Hitokakera
Translation: A fragment
Arrangement: Paprika
Lyrics: Ranko
Vocals: Ranko

Original theme:

  • Boushitsu no Emotion – Touhou Shinkirou ~ Hopeless Masquerade; Hata no Kokoro’s theme

Album:

  • Ayakashi Yokochou (track 8)

Sample:

Ranko: And now, this is the first time I wrote lyrics for a Kokoro song. Kokoro becomes interestingly cute the more you know about her.
I like the part that Koishi picked up the Mask of Hope she lost and I wanted to write about it, but that will be for another day!
KoiKoko might be a pairing I like that follows KoiFlan.
Anyway, I thought it would be lovely that Kokoro becomes human little by little by battling various people and dancing new Noh plays everyday. I arbitrarly made a story in my mind. I wrote the lyrics with plenty of hope and I sang them in a gentle mood.

Lyrics

連綿と続く毎日
隙間に感じる綻び
renmen to tsudzuku mainichi
sukima ni kanjiru hokorobi

舞い踊って人に見られ
満たされるはずのこころに
maiodotte hito ni mirare
mitasareru hazu no kokoro ni

生まれ宿る感情 仮面を迷う
どれが相応しいのかわからないまま 明日も
umareyadoru kanjou kamen wo mayou
dore ga fusawashii no ka wakaranai mama ashita mo

押し付けられた希望 絶望と変わらない
亡くした希望の意味は 拾った人が決める
oshitsukerareta kibou zetsubou to kawaranai
nakushita kibou no imi wa hirotta hito ga kimeru

今でもまだ不安になることがある
ただの道具に戻る 日が来るかもと
こんな気持ち初めて 仮面を纏う
これが人間味なら 感情は悪じゃない
ひとかけらを拾って すこし笑えた、明日も
ima demo mada fuan ni naru koto ga aru
tada no dougu ni modoru hi ga kuru kamo to
konna kimochi hajimete kamen wo matou
kore ga ningenmi nara kanjou wa aku janai
hitokakera wo hirotte sukoshi waraeta, ashita mo
