[lyrics] ONE MORE CHANCE  
Because it's so dedicated to Lelouch.


The streets are slowly waking up
Feeling a new breeze
The numbers of dreams lost
I treasure them in my heart.

thank you for your love
All those people I've met until today that supported me.
thank you for your love
I won't forget you, a person with a strong and beautiful heart.

One more chance
Please watch over me.
So that I can continue down the path of my belief.
Yes, one more chance, just one more.
I will try to live on, for you too.

Even though the war was ended.
I cannot let my tears fall, yet.
Until I can ascend one step
On the staircase of our promise.

I will try again
Even when I stumble
I will lift my chest high, in order to walk forward.
I will try again
Someday I'll catch up
Please encourage me, tell me that I'm not alone.

One more chance
Dawn will break
I want to wave my hand at the stars
Yes, one more chance, tomorrow
Shine above the sky again.

I really want to meet you
And cry in your arms. (literally would be 'in your chest', but 'in your arms' sound more natural and delivers the same message)

One more chance
Please watch over me.
So that I can continue down the path of my belief.
Yes, one more chance, just one more.
I will try to live on, for you too.

One more chance
Dawn will break
I want to wave my hand at the stars
Yes, one more chance, tomorrow
Shine above the sky again.

Also, I find the way that Koshimizu pronounces ONE MORE CHANCE in that "WAAN MOAAA CHANSU~" fashion incredibly cute. Uh.

Thanks for sharing, it's very sad!

But I'm sure that Lelouch is alive, so I'm sorry for Kallen! D:

Oh for the love of god, I need to block this comm for a while or something. I keep thinking I'm fine, and then I read the fics on this comm or things like this and I just get sent into heartbroken mode all over again ;___;

Or at least I gotta stop reading it at work >.>

Thank you for the translations, it's really nice to hear Kallen's feelings afterward, even though I'll be all T_____________T for a while.

Oh Kallen, even you got on my nerves the last few episodes, I still love you...♥

Thank you so much for the translation!

It's refreshing to hear Kallen's feelings about what happened. I love the sense of optimism in the song.

It's so bittersweet...gah...

Kallen's VA said that when she saw the lyrics, she felt like crying. I feel like crying too...

The song is the best char song so far, IMO. I like its upbeat tune and wow, it does sound like an 80s idol song, like Suzaku's VA said.

The song sounds so positive, but knowing the circumstances, Kallen's probably crying inside her heart as well.

SHE DID??? SHE SAID THAT??? Oh that's so nice!!! *cries*

And defade, thanks so much for the translation. This made my lulu/kallen fangirl a very happy person today.

Yeah, Koshimizu Ami said so. It was during the last episode of the rurukuru station radio show, in which Koshimizu was a guest.

Some of the things Koshimizu said about her character:

Sakurai: How would you describe Kallen in S2?
Koshimizu: She's become more...karen? (kallen=karen is a pun because karen can also mean pitiable, poor, etc.)

Then, here are some comments said about the song:

Sakurai: Is that an 80s idol song? (laugh)
Koshimizu: It's a good song, you know. I would like to listen to it after watching the last episode.
Sakurai: Right, of course. This song will be released after the last episode.
Koshimizu: I'd watch the last episode carefully and after that, I'll listen to the song while reading the lyrics.
Koshimizu: I understand that Kallen is someone who can't obtain happiness. (the exact words were 幸薄い 'happiness/fortune/luck + thin/weak/diluted')
Sakurai: 'til the end?
Koshimizu: Yeah.
Sakurai: This is from listening to the song?
Koshimizu: Yes. While I was singing the song, I felt like crying. I was thinking about Kallen.
Sakurai: Then this song is filled with your/her feelings?
Koshimizu: Yes, it's filled with lots of feelings.
Sakurai: You know, the title 'One More Chance' sounds positive.
Fukuyama: But, doesn't it mean that you've failed once already?
(everyone laughs)

I kinda felt that we were going to have a bittersweet ending from listening to the radio show. It makes me cry to think that what I was afraid of really did come true.

My! Thanks so much for sharing.

Fukuyama's line is so Lelouch there. meanie ;P

It's even more beautiful now that we know a bit of the background, thanks so much :D

Aww, Kallen.

It's really great to hear her feeling though.

Thanks for the translation.

TT__TT I'm going to go cry now some more!

Kallen loved him, there's no doubt about that.

D'awww Kallen. I really like this song. *A*;;

... did anyone ever translate Lelouch's second song? I don't think I ever saw lyrics posted for it anywhere :O
Nathanmelengro on October 1st, 2008 06:50 am (UTC)
Thank you. This made me cry my eyes out and I don't even like Kallen.
Truly a heart-shattering ending...
