Twilight lyrics

[female voice:]
Hi ga Kureru
Sore wa Toki no Mahou
Asu Onaji Toki
Mata Chigau Mahou
Sore wa Iro ga Kaori ni
Kaori ga Iro ni Kawaru Toki
Soshite Kage wa Kagirinai
Ao ni Tokeru
The day falls into the twilight.
It is a magic of time.
The same time tommorrow,
there'll be another magic.
It is when colors turn to flavors,
and flavors turn to colors.
And it is when
shadows melt into deep blue....

Red lights
lyrics

Doshita doshita [...] korya sa*
[...] korya sa
[...] korya sa
[...] korya sa
[...] korya sa
[...] korya sa
[...] korya sa
Doshita doshita sore kara doshita
[...] korya sa
[...] korya sa
[...] korya sa

* O-hayashi is a way of speaking used in a Matsuri (festival) to emulate the rhythm of taiko drumming.
"Doshita" is "what did" "Korya sa" is used in usual conversation as meaning: "it is", but in the Matsuri it is used without any meaning (just like "shout!")
