This song serves as the opening to Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia, and it also serves as the very first song in the Singing Hill series that spans the entirety of the trilogy. Its main theme is the happiness brought by singing and sharing your feelings with others, and also the fact that we all, as members of a same family, should coexist in peace and harmony.

Feelings Contained in This Song

If you ever were to be overflowing with happiness,
pour these feelings into a Song and make it heard
The radiance of the present, contained in a fiddle,
will illuminate this world, and enshroud everyone in warmth.
If you sometime were to hide your tears,
then pour that pain into a Song and make it heard
The shifting time is hidden inside a lute,
and while it chews on the trembling feelings, one by one,
By being somewhere another person that sympathizes with your heart,
We all become connected by a great wheel,
Your feelings will ride the wind, cross the sea,
because they will go and connect to the farthest of the cities.
The plains of peace, the glass of the tears,
the box of memories, and the silk threads of the feelings.
Each word you say contains power,
And they overlap each other, flow and cross each other,
and entwine with the breath of the spirits of the wind.
These trembling lips are whispering a melody close to your ears,
If you gently close your eyelids, you will be able to feel the pulse of all of them,
the pulse of all the hearts melting into one.

Meaning

This is what the series creator, Akira Tsuchiya, had to say about the meaning of each one of the Japanese lyric lines. According to him, the Japanese lines have a grammar invented by himself, which is why they seem unusual to even the native Japanese speakers, not to mention they also have hidden meanings.[1] The hidden meanings are revealed below:

 天上を翔舞う 霊囁き結えば
 Amakami o kakemau tama sasayaki yueba
 Once the spiritual murmurings that dance through the heavens connect

  "Dance through the heavens" is a metaphor for happiness, and the "spiritual murmurings" are the power of the words,
 or rather, of the songs, while "connect" means to sing them.

 
 冠火降り満ちて 何人幸織り成せ
 Kanmuribi furi michite nanihito yuki orinase
 their crown of fire will fully descend, interweaving the happiness of everyone.

 The "crown of fire" refers to the holy light.

 五月雨の藍海を 唯流るる声は
 Samidare no aimi o tada nagaruru koe wa
 A voice merely pours the indigo sea of an early summer rain

 The "indigo sea" refers to the tears of sadness. "By merely pours", it means that you shouldn't hide your feelings,
 and that you should just let them out.


 移ろひ逆凪ぎ朧気な故郷の音
 Utsuroi sakanagi oboroge na furusato no ne
 Containing changing, reversed, and faint sounds of birthplaces

 By "changing, reversed and faint", it means the coming and going, and also, the insecurity of our hearts.
 On the other hand, "sounds of birthplaces" means your past memories.


 奏で鳴り吹く凱亜 空に響き相成せば
 Kanade narifuku gaia sora ni hibiki ainaseba
 When the gaias we sing echo with each other in the skies,

 "Gaia" means the entirety of this world. And by "singing" them through your voice
[singing them (making them resound) and making them echo (singing them together)], it means to turn them into one in the firmament.


 飛翔く 祈りの謳 纏ひて
 Tobekaku inori no uta matoite
 they will be clad in the soaring Song of a prayer.

 By "soaring", it means that they will ride even in the farthest winds
and by "Song of prayer", it means your own feelings, and by "clad in", it means to ride on the winds.


 安らぎの丘 涙の硝子 記憶の箱 想いの碑
 Yasuragi no oka namida no garasu kioku no hako omoi no hi
 The hills of peace, the glass sheets of tears, the boxes of memories, the monuments of feelings


 一重幾重の虚ろふ生糸 魂の根結び繋ぐ
 Hitoe ikue no utsurou kiito tamashii no ne musubitsunagu
 One, multiple blank silk threads tie and connect the roots of the souls

 By single and multiple, it refers to your feelings and the feelings of other person(s),
 By "blank", it means to how airily these feelings flow, similarly to silk threads, and by "connecting the roots of the souls", it says
 how the feelings are transmitted and connect with each other.


 たゆたう無の海 精霊の風息
 Tayutau mu no umi shourei no kazaiki
 Within the swaying ocean of nothingness, within the spirits' breath of wind

  The "ocean of nothingness" refers to the innocence inside your heart, and by relaxedly floating in it, you are
 receiving that innocence, the "spirits" are the personification of the transmission of feelings, while their "breath of wind" are the
 feelings themselves.


 溶け結ふ曼荼羅に 謳ひの御子あれ
 Tokeyuu mandara ni utai no miko are
 Within the mandala that melt and connect together, may you be there, singing priestesses

 The "Mandala" refers to the hearts (and furthermore, to their deepest areas),
 while the "melting and connecting" is a metaphor for connecting the consciousness existent in the depths of the hearts.
 And the "singing priestesses" refer to those whose lives are the closest to understanding the truth about this world.
