I thought this was arrangement of Kogasa’s theme to begin with because of all the umbrella references. Then I listened to it and realised it was an arrangement of Reimu’s theme.


歌詞

湿った空がじくじくと
私に問いかけてく
「願った今日はこんなにも
悲しい物だったかい」

吹く風に赤くたなびく想い
知ってしまったの叶わぬ事もあると

行かないで消えないで
暗い影に滲んでいく
あなたの笑顔を守ってあげられず
振り向いた傘の中
静かに零れた涙に
気づかないフリをするしか出来なかった

暖かな日差しのような
あなたからの言葉に
いつしか感じ始めた
スキマを恐れていた

耳を澄ましても聴こえぬ声に
知ってしまったの癒えない傷もあると

叫んでも嘆いても
戻る事の無い昨日に
立ち止まる背中陰って溶けて行く
傾いた傘の中
微かに動く唇に
気づかないフリをするしか出来なかった

何度でも何度でも
同じ夢を見続ければ
いつかは違った明日が来るのかな

行かないで消えないで
暗い影に滲んでいく
あなたの笑顔を守ってあげられず
振り向いた傘の中
静かに零れた涙に
気づかないフリをするしか出来なかった

Translation

The damp sky, oozing,
Asks me a question:
“Was today, which you wished for,
Such a sad day?”

My feelings linger red in the blowing wind.
I ended up realising that there are some wishes that won’t be granted.

Don’t go, don’t disappear…
You melt into the dark shadows.
I couldn’t protect you. I couldn’t keep you smiling.
Within my parasol, facing backwards,
I could only pretend I wasn’t aware
Of the tears silently spilling from my eyes.

Because of your words,
Which were like the warm rays of the sun,
I began to feel fear before I knew it –
I began to fear the gaps.

Even if I strain my ears, I cannot hear your voice.
I ended up realising that there are some wounds that cannot be healed.

Though I scream, though I grieve,
Your figure from behind, standing still,
Grows dark and dissolves in a yesterday that will not return.
Within my parasol, leaning to the side,
I could only pretend I wasn’t aware
Of my faintly moving lips.

No matter how many times it takes,
If I keep having the same dream,
Then perhaps a different tomorrow will come someday…

Don’t go, don’t disappear…
You melt into the dark shadows.
I couldn’t protect you. I couldn’t keep you smiling.
Within my parasol, facing backwards,
I could only pretend I wasn’t aware
Of the tears silently spilling from my eyes.
