Izayoi no Tsuki ni Mae (十六夜の月に舞え, roughly translated as "Dance in The Full Moon") is a song and eponymous digital single performed by Japanese actor, singer, and voice actor Shoko Nakagawa. The song celebrates the tenth anniversary of her solo singing career and acts as the collaboration theme song for Toukiden 2, which plays during promotional media and the ending credits; Nakagawa also voices Gwen in the same game.

This song was made for Toukiden 2 with the game's music team, the melody even including arrangements of the series's main theme Melodies of Nakatsukuni. Nakagawa shared her hopes that players around the world will be riveted when they listen to Japanese traditional instruments blending with rock and Yuho Iwasato's lyrics in this song.

LyricsEdit

目を醒ました夢なら ただ貫きたいだけ
もう一度見上げた空は 夜になる一歩手前で
夕闇色に滲み始めた 群青がやけに痛かった
どうでもいいことばかりを 思い出してしまうけど
泣き出しそうな笑顔が好きで あの日抱きしめたんだよね
あなたならどうするかな? あなたならどうしたんだろなんて
行ったり来たりで 月がまた嗤うけど
生き残れ 生き抜くために 僕たちは息をしてる
傷ついて 一つ残らず たとえ失くしてもまだ
終わりなんかじゃないのさ
いざ 十六夜の月に舞え いま 気高き愛を見せろ
ねえ 守るべきものは何? けれど守れないものに
うらはらなまま 哀しいくらい 誰も縛られてるんだね
もう二度と戻れないなら 朝を待つ遠い丘で
光を浴びたあの日の街を 胸に灼き付けたかった
花はいつも咲いてる 花はいつも咲き誇ってるよ
祈りのように 月にまた歌うなら
立ち上がれ 立ち向かえなきゃ 憎しみも手に入らない
きれいごと言うその前に 渡れ イバラの森を
終わりなんかじゃないから
見たことない時代が待ってるから
僕らはいつかそこで何を見つけるだろう
生き残れ 生き抜くために 僕たちは息をしてる
傷ついて 一つ残らず たとえ失くしてもまだ
生き残れ 生き抜くために 僕たちは息をしてる
傷ついて 一つ残らず たとえ失くしてもまだ
終わりなんかじゃないのさ
いざ 十六夜の月に舞え いま 気高き愛を見せろ

If this is the dream I'm waking to, then I only want to stab it
I look up to the sky again. It was moments before nightfall
the sky seeped with the colors dusk. Azure bled into my eyes
I remembered a lot of stupid things about you,
but I loved your teary-eyed smile. We hugged that day, didn't we
What would you do now? What did you do at a time like this?
I go back and forth like this while the moon sneers at me
But I shall live. We breathe to survive
We hurt all over. But even if we're lost,
I know this won't be the end
I dance before the full moon. I'll show you the most noble of love
Hey, what is there to protect anyway? But if I admit that there is nothing to protect,
then I'd be idle and lonesome. Nobody would be attached to me
If I knew I couldn't ever come back, I would have waited on that distant hill till dawn
so I could have memories of that day with the village bathed in sunlight
Flowers will always bloom. Flowers are always in bloom.
If I could, I would sing this like a prayer to the moon
Stand up. We've got to rise up. Don't get caught up in hatred
Before you say that it's nonsense, cross that forest of thorns with me
Because this isn't the end for us
Because an era we've never seen is waiting for us
When we get there someday, what do you think we'll see?
Live. We breathe to survive
We hurt all over. But even if we're lost
Survive. We breathe to be alive
We hurt them, one by one, even if we're the ones who lose
Because we know that this isn't the end
I dance below the full moon. I'll show you a noble love
