Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Nihongo[edit | edit source]

水も狭に川明かり
 見上げて水芭蕉
 
 旋回しつつ 影を増す
 玲瓏と
 雲より来て 残心の

 止まり木おやむ 水彩鳥
 音も無く 一筆
 ふわりと舞って
 消えた

 別れ帰し人想う風
 然は然りながら
 ふくらとなって
 煙霧に抱かれている

 「それでも・・・」
 最後に愛した人が
 言った

 雲を隔つ白雨
 残んの空の散るのを見て
 泣いた

 破顔で

 「それでも泣いてはいけない」

Romaji[edit | edit source]

mizu mo sema ni kawa akari
miagete mizubashou

senkai shitsutsu kage wo masu
reirou to
kumo yori kite zan shin no

tomari ki oyamu suisai chou
otomo naku hitofude
fuwari to matte
kieta

wakare kishi jin omou kaze
sae wa saeri nagara
fukura to natte
enmu ni idakareteiru

'soredemo...'
saigo ni aishita hito ga
itta

kumo wo hedatsu hakuu
nokon no sora no chiru no wo mite
naita

hagan de

'soredemo naite wa ikenai'

English Translation[edit | edit source]

The water is also narrow in river lights
The skunk cabbage looked up

While turning, the shadow enhances
With cleverance
The remaining heart came from the clouds

The watercolor bird perches to cease
One stroke without a sound
Dance softly
Disappearing

The wind thinking about an attributed farewell person
While the nature is a versa
Becoming
Has been embraced in the fog

"Still..."
My last, loved person
Spoke

Intervaling the clouds with white rain
Look at the remaining falls of the sky,
Crying

In the features
"Still, the cries will not go on"
