After the bitter comes the sweet

My self-possession is on the brink of collapse

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I'm falling quickly in love with you
I can't stop now, I can't stop now
Through the cheers and the boos and the applause
I won't turn back

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If the future one inch ahead is in darkness, the future two inches ahead is bright [1]
A twist that would surprise even Shakespeare
That's life
This might be the best day of my life
I'm keeping a calm and open mind

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
SHEIKUSUPIA datte odoroki no tenkai
That's life

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
A twist that would surprise even Shakespeare
That's life

[1] "(The future) one inch ahead is in darkness" is a saying to the effect of "no one knows what the future holds"; I've had to translate it literally here for the bit of wordplay to make sense.
