風が木の葉の色を変え

Rapahel was an older jrock band that formed in 1997, and was only active until 2000, when their leader and guitarist Kazuki died of a tranquilizer overdose at the age of 19. It was… a waste because I believed that they could have made it big, really big, considering how young they were at that time. And their second album even managed to hit #30 on the Oricon music charts, which I assume, is a hard thing to do when you’re a newer band.

The rest of the band, YUKI, Hiro and Yukito, reunited on 31 Oct and 1 November 2012 and held two live concerts in memory of Kazuki’s death, and YUKI’s voice is still just as lovely as when they were younger, 12 years younger, in fact.

The live version vs the original PV:

Kanji English
貴方に連ねるこの想い
切ない届かない僕は壊れて
もしも願いが叶うのなら
貴方よ うつつに僕のものに
>貴方への想いは溢れて
抱え切れない程の愛しさよ
夜空に描く幾千の君
今夜の夢でもまた会えるよね
夢は透き通る僕の世界
素直にただ素直に想い届けるよ
夜空に描く幾千の君
今夜の夢でもまた会えるよね
夢から覚めた天使の素顔
あまりに綺麗で言葉にならない
永遠を生む透明な瞬間
とどかぬ想いを抱き夢の中へ…
目が覚めたなら想いとどけよう
誰より君の事愛しているから
Ah, these thoughts I want to communicate to you
Unfeelingly, they do not reach you
And I’m broken…
If this wish were to come true,
you will be mine in reality
Ah, these thoughts towards you are overflowing
Hold the loveliness of the moment which isn’t cut off
In the night sky, I draw thousands of you
We’ll be meeting again in tonight’s dream
In my world, the dream is clear
Only in gentleness can thoughts reach through
In the night sky, I draw thousands of you
We’ll be meeting again in tonight’s dream
The bare face of the angel who awakened from a dream,
I cannot say that it was not very beautiful
Living for eternity in a transparent moment
In my dream, I hold on to the thoughts which cannot reach you
If your eyes awaken, let those thoughts reach you
Because I love you more than anyone
