歌詞

眩しい日向にうんざりして
深山の川辺を独りで往く

極彩の天蓋 その向こうへ

梢の合間を 擦り抜ける陽の光に
何故かこみ上げるのは 遠いあの日の寂寞

流れる水の音に混ざって
葉擦れが耳の奥を擽る

心地よい音さえ 物悲しい

歩を進めるたび 懐かしさが胸を打つ
もう今は還れない 遠いあの日の後悔

嗚呼どれだけ隠しても 零れる心
通り過ぎてしまった 幼い私

夢を観ていたの 在りし日のあの風景を
木洩れ日が降り注ぐ 色を孕むこの場所で
振り返りはしない 一歩を確かめるように
私はここにいると 生き続けているのだと

Romanisation

mabushii hinata ni unzari shite
miyama no kawabe wo hitori de iku

gokusai no tengai sono mukou e

kozue no aima wo surinukeru hi no hikari ni
nazeka komi ageru no wa tooi ano hi no sekibaku

nagareru mizu no oto ni mazatte
hazure ga mimi no oku wo kuzuguru

kokochi yoi oto sae monoganashii

ho wo susumeru tabi natsukashisa ga mune wo utsu
mou ima wa kaerenai tooi ano hi no koukai

aa dore dake kakushitemo koboreru kokoro
toori sugite shimatta osanai watashi

yume wo mite ita no arishi hi no ano fuukei wo
komorebi ga furisosogu iro wo haramu kono basho de
furikaeri wa shinai ippo wo tashikameru you ni
watashi wa koko ni iru to iki tsudzukete iru no da to

Translation

In my bright, sunny spot, I’m bored.
I walk all alone on the riverside, deep in the mountains.

I head beyond the richly-coloured canopy.

In the sunlight, which slips through the gaps in the treetops,
The loneliness of a distant day wells up inside me for some reason.

The rustling of the leaves, mixed in with the sounds of the flowing water,
Tickles the inside of my ears.

Even pleasant sounds are melancholy.

Each time I step forward, nostalgia beats against me.
I can’t go back now. I feel the remorse of a distant day.

Aah… no matter how much I hide it, my heart becomes visible.
My youthful self passed by me in the end…

I was dreaming of that landscape, during the days of yore.
The sunlight filtered through the trees there, swollen with colours.
So I can be sure of my progress, I will not turn back.
I am here. I continue to live.
