Lyrics: minatoku
Composition: WEST GROUND & Hige Driver
Arrangement: WEST GROUND & Natsumi Kameoka

I'd like to try listening to it someday
But I'm sure I won't be able to
Do you remember
the first sea we saw on that day?

I'd like to try going together
I'm sorry. I wonder if it's a bit far
I won't forget
the dawn I saw with you

On the night of a stormy day
we will embark
We carry our heavy burden
And lining up,
we must still advance, but
the rain is so strong we can't return home
The pain is dazzling

Remember that we were here
My morning, your dreams
Even if they sink and decay
we will certainly return
So embrace the wishes and prayers

Don't forget the wind running through
The sinking sea, the splitting sky
Even if they overflow and disappear
someday we'll be reunited
I return back to you. You who I connect with

I was fascinated by your profile
that's like the cherry blossom season
I won't forget
that smile in the sunlight

On a morning flower petals dance
we too will start rowing
We hold our final shield
And forming a circle
we must work our way there, but
the sky's so low we can't advance
Our vision blurring...

Keep waiting

The moon we looked up at
the waves sending up splashes too
the snow and rain too
Everything's so nostalgic

When it lies thick, deep and quietly
even if it erases
your nights, traces of me
we will return here, so
I will embrace you

I won't forget the clouds we chased after
the sinking sea, the splitting sky
Growing hazy in the distance
someday we'll walk together
You, who I connect with, are my hope

Itsuka wa kiite mitai na
Demo kitto dekinai ne
Ano hi mita hajime no umi

Issho ni itte mitai ne
Gomen sukoshi tooi kana
Kimi to mita asayakezora

Arashi no hi no yoru
Bokura wa tabidatsu
Omoi nimotsu mochi
Tairetsu wo kunde
Mada susumanakya dakedo
Ame ga tsuyokute kaerenai
Itami ga mabushii

Oboete ite koko ni ita koto
Boku no asa kimi no yume
Shizumi kuchitemo
Kanarazu kaeru kara
Negai inori dakishimete

Wasurenai de kakenuketa kaze
Ochiru umi hazeru sora
Kobore kietemo
Itsuka megurideau
Tsunagu kimi e no kitou

Sakura no kisetsu mitai na
Kimi no yokogao mihoreteta
Hidamari no sono egao

Hanabira mau asa
Bokura mo kogidasu
Saigo no tate mochi
Enjin wo kunde
Tadoritsukanakucha dakedo
Sora ga hikukute susumenai
Shikai ga nijinde


Miageta ita tsuki
Shibuki ageru nami mo
Yuki mo ame mo
Minna natsukashii

Shizuka ni fukaku furitsumoru toki
Kimi no yoru boku no ato
Keshite ittemo
Koko ni kaeru kara
Boku wa kimi wo dakishimeru

Wasurenai yo oikaketa kumo
Ochiru umi hazeru sora
Tooku kasunde
Itsu no hi ka tomo ni ayumu
Tsunagu kimi koso kibou

でも きっとできないね
あの日見た 初めの海

ごめん 少し遠いかな
君と見た 朝焼け空

まだ進まなきゃ だけど
雨が強くて 帰れない

覚えていて ここに居たこと
僕の朝 君の夢
願い 祈り 抱きしめて

忘れないで 駆け抜けた風
堕ちる海 爆ぜる空
いつか 巡り出逢う
繋ぐ君への 帰投

君の横顔 見惚れてた
ひだまりの その笑顔

たどりつかなくちゃ だけど
空が低くて 進めない



静かに深く 降り積もる時
君の夜 僕の跡
僕は 君を 抱きしめる

忘れないよ 追いかけた雲
堕ちる海 爆ぜる空
いつの日か 共に歩む
繋ぐ君こそ 希望

  1. I seemed to have mistakenly deleted Anonymous's comment while checking on my phone. I apologize for that, and hope you're able to see my comment.

    Anyhow, you were right about this translation being rough. I'm not sure what I was doing when I translated it, but, judging by the date I did translate it, I'm fairly certain it was when I was forcing myself to translate as many songs as possible in a week. Couple this with translating songs like this, which I didn't personally enjoy, and you get a messy translation. This is totally my fault, and one of the reasons why I decided to stop taking requests in the first place.

    And while I do appreciate your help, you did come off quite dickish in your tone. This is the internet, though, so it's near impossible to gauge someone's tone here, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
