歌詞

藤の枝に咲く 行き場のない
鳥たちの声は不揃い
明日の再現 人の感情は
空中にも似た 様相消し

理想を放つ 君との孤独は
紺に似た色 白を埋め
目蓋に隠れ 一輪挿し
私にだけ 継接ぎの世

砕けた幻想の中庭
夢の後
この場から指差す
君がいる

ただ響き合う
鉄の音
迸る旋律
努、忘れないように

くだらない幻想は終わって
意味も無く
訪れる場所には
君がいる

ただ感じ合う
鉄の音
交わされた約束だけ
忘れないよ


孤掌難鳴 振り返る空
旭日昇天 浅緋の色
為虎傅翼の君がいるから
生日足日の意味さえ分かる

あの日に見た夢
決して褪せないように

Translation

Appearing upon the wisteria branch, with nowhere to go,
The birds’ calls are irregular.
I will reappear tomorrow. The feelings of humans
Are like the air. They erase aspects of them…

I set my ideals loose. The loneliness I feel when I’m with you
Covers the whiteness with a colour resembling navy blue.
A flower vase is hidden by my eyelids.
This patchwork world is for me alone.

I am in a broken, illusory courtyard
After my dream.
You are there
Pointing away from here.

We just understand each other
And hear metallic noises.
A melody surges forth.
I hope I will never forget it…

The foolish illusions have finished.
They are meaningless.
You are there
At the place I arrived at.

We just share the same feelings
And hear metallic noises.
The only things I won’t forget
Are the promises we exchanged.

Now…
Alone, I am powerless. I turn back and look up at the sky.
I rise like the sun, pale scarlet in colour.
Because you, who make me stronger, are here,
I understand even the meaning of this auspicious day.

I hope the dream I had that day
Will never fade away…
