Lyrics

Japanese

交わした約束忘れないよ
目を閉じ確かめる
押し寄せた闇 振り払って進むよ

いつになったらなくした未来を
私ここでまた見ることできるの?

溢れ出した不安の影を何度でも裂いて
この世界歩んでこう

とめどなく刻まれた 時は今始まり告げ
変わらない思いをのせ
閉ざされた扉開けよう

目覚めた心は走り出した未来を描くため
難しい道で立ち止まっても
空はきれいな青さでいつも待っててくれる
だから怖くない
もう何があっても挫けない

Romaji

kawashita yakusoku wasurenai yo
me wo toji tashikameru
oshiyoseta yami furiharatte susumu yo

itsu ni nattara nakushita mirai wo
watashi koko de mata miru koto dekiru no?

afuredashita fuan no kage wo nando demo saite
kono sekai ayun de kou

tomedonaku kizamareta toki wa ima hajimari tsuge
kawaranai omoi wo nose
tozasareta tobira akeyou

mezameta kokoro wa hashiridashita mirai wo egaku tame
muzukashii michi de tachidomatte mo
sora wa kirei na aosa de itsumo mattete kureru
dakara kowakunai
mou nani ga atte mo kujikenai

English

I won't forget the promises we exchanged
I close my eyes to affirm it
I will shake off the overwhelming darkness to move forward

When will I ever be able
To see the lost future from here again?

Let's move forward in this world
By shattering the overflowing shadows of anxiety again and again

Time now begins to tick away incessantly
Let's open the closed door
While carrying our unchanging feelings

My heart awakes in order to depict the future
Even if I come to a halt on a tough road
The beautiful blue sky always waits for me
Therefore I'm not afraid
I won't be disheartened anymore no matter what happens

Trivia

  • コネクト is used as the opening theme of the Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (魔法少女まどか☆マギカ, also known as Puella Magi Madoka Magica) anime series.
    • It was later used as an insert song for the Gekijouban Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (Kouhen): Eien no Monogatari (劇場版 魔法少女まどか☆マギカ[後編] 永遠の物語, Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Eternal) film of the anime movie adaptation trilogy.
  • Coincidentally, one of the anime's main characters, Kyoko Sakura (佐倉 杏子), is seen playing the dance instrumental version of コネクト, (コネクト -ゲームインスト-), on a Dog Drug Reinforcement arcade game, a DanceDanceRevolution-like machine, in the sixth episode of the anime.
  • コネクト was later included on ClariS's first album, BIRTHDAY, with irony, nexus and ナイショの話.
