Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Japanese Romaji English
ぼんやり続く日和 bon'yari tsuzuku hiyori Days of fine weather continued carelessly.
彼女の笑顔は見ないな kanojo no egao wa minai na I can’t see her smile…
モノクロフィルムの中 monokuro firumu no naka In the black-and-white film,
彼の笑顔が寂しく見えた kare no egao ga sabishiku mieta his smile seemed sad.

微睡み涼んでいたら madoromi suzunde itara After dozing and cooling off,
あの頃の景色が見えたよ ano koro no keshiki ga mieta yo I could see a scene from those days.
胸騒ぎの目覚めだ munasawagi no mezame da I awoke feeling uneasy.
不意に目から雫が溢れる fui ni me kara shizuku ga afureru Unconsciously, tears flowed from my eyes.

何もかも薄っぺらくなるようで nanimokamo usupperaku naru you de Everything seemed to become so shallow,
色々遮断してみたけれど iroiro shadan shite mita keredo and though I tried to isolate various things,
ふざけんなふざけんなって fuzaken na fuzaken na tte I thought "damn it, damn it all!"
遣る瀬無くなる yarusenaku naru and I became so miserable.

幸福ってなんだろう koufuku tte nan darou What is happiness?
僕は一ミリでも boku wa ichimiri demo Even if it’s just 1 millimetre,
それに近づけていたのかな sore ni chikazukete ita no kana I wonder if I got a bit closer to it.
わからない wakaranai I don’t know.
なあ教えて naa oshiete Hey, tell me!

君は宙を舞って kimi wa chuu o matte You dance through the air
僕は地を這う boku wa chi o hau and I crawl on the ground.
それはないって一人置いて sore wa nai tte hitori oite I said “you can’t!” but you left me behind
夜風を切りながら yokaze o kiri nagara while cutting through the night breeze.

CUEを出して弾いて CUE o dashite hiite I give the cue and play,
君を歌うよ kimi o utau yo singing about you.
離さないでこの気持ちを hanasanaide kono kimochi o Don’t let go of this feeling
夜風を切りながら yokaze o kiri nagara while cutting through the night breeze.

海辺で見てた花火 umibe de miteta hanabi I saw fireworks on the beach,
有限の思い出夏景色 yuugen no omoide natsu keshiki a summer scene from my limited memories.
僕らが見ていた将来像 bokura ga mite ita shouraizou The vision we saw of the future
今はもう笑える ima wa mou waraeru is now so laughable.

其方はどうだい socchi wa doudai How are you going?
生き抜いてるかい ikinuiteru kai Are you living through it all?
黄昏の宵に自問自答してる tasogare no yoi ni jimonjitou shiteru I wonder to myself in the dusk hours.

君は宙を舞って kimi wa chuu o matte You dance through the air
僕は地を這う boku wa chi o hau and I crawl on the ground.
種を蒔いて見つめ直して tane o maite mitsumenaoshite I sow the seeds and reconsider
夜風を浴びながら yokaze o abi nagara while basking in the night breeze.

CUEを出して弾いて CUE o dashite hiite I give the cue and play,
君を歌うよ kimi o utau yo singing about you.
思い出してこの記憶を omoidashite kono kioku o I remember
夜風を切りながら yokaze o kiri nagara while cutting through the night breeze.

宙を舞って待って chuu o matte matte You dance through the air and wait,
僕は地を這う boku wa chi o hau and I crawl on the ground.
それはないって一人置いて sore wa nai tte hitori oite I said “you can’t!” but you left me behind
夜風を切りながら yokaze o kiri nagara while cutting through the night breeze.

CUEを出して弾いて CUE o dashite hiite I give the cue and play,
君を歌うよ kimi o utau yo singing about you.
離さないでこの気持ちを hanasanaide kono kimochi o Don’t let go of this feeling
夜風を切りながら yokaze o kiri nagara while cutting through the night breeze.
