English Lyrics: Adam Pulver
After picking up the Cardcaptor Sakura Character Songbook, it didn't take me long to fall in love with the album. Eventually, I decided that I would write English lyrics for the entire album, and attempt to get it performed at a convention or something. Ambitious perhaps, but the idea would be a lot of fun.

The first song, an upbeat duet between Sakura and Kero-chan, features the distinct character styles as they go back and forth in the verses. Ironic perhaps that "zutto" actually means always, but that's hard to rhyme with!

Never, Never, Never

Both:
Never, never, never! We won't ever find ourselves alone.
Hey hey, always and forever, don't care how bad times may be.
Getting through whatever, you and I will always make it home.
Hey hey, if we stick together, we'll always be filled with energy!

Sakura:
It all started out with a bang, thought that my eyes were mistaken.
Little plushie, in front of me. Man, what a surprise!

Kero:
It all started out with a bang, when I found myself awakin'.
Little girlie, in front of me. Damn, what a surprise!

Sakura:
It was alarming, it was confusing. Something out of a dream.

Kero:
But it's so charming, we're just fusing. One heck of a team.

Both:
Softly, softly, softly! As we're sneaking outside quietly.
Hey hey, when we're taking off we fly up in the moonlit sky.
Though the task is lofty, filled with wonderment and mystery.
I know surely, surely, surely, we will make it if it's you and I!

Sakura:
It might be a dangerous ride, might be scary, might be painful.

Kero:
If ya always stick close to me. We'll always get through.

Sakura:
Sharing the good times, making it double, happy in stereo.

Kero:
Sharin' the bad times, splittin' the trouble, wait until it goes.

Both:
Never, never, never! We won't ever find ourselves alone.
Hey hey, always and forever, don't care how bad times may be.
Getting through whatever, you and I will always make it home.
Hey hey, if we stick together, we'll be smiling for eternity!

Both:
Softly, softly, softly! As we're sneaking outside quietly.
Hey hey, when we're taking off we fly up in the moonlit sky.
Though the task is lofty, filled with wonderment and mystery.
I know surely, surely, surely, we will make it if it's you and I!

You and I!
