歌詞

夜が過ぎて朝が来て 何度も月が昇っては降りて
感情だけが澄んでいく
ただかなしみだけが純化していく

名前もない 面影(かたち)もない
透明より蒼く浮かんでいく
応答を待ち永遠を知る
呪に交わってまた白くなる

変わらないその声でわたしを呼ばないで
変わり果てたその眼差しにさえ 焦がれて

今日も冷たい夜に道連れ
近づくのも離れるのもできない
弱虫ね

愛だったもの 引力の痕跡(あと)
遠く近く満ちては欠けていく
欠けて また愛になる
かなしい輪廻 月と狐

淡く匂い立つ死の気配を絶っても
あなたが振り返ることなんてないのに

今日も冷たい朝にさようなら
抱きしめあっても背中が寒い
そんな夜だった

あなたは待たせる 果てしなく
わたしは待てずに朽ち果てる

今日も冷たい夜に道連れ
近づくのも離れるのもできない
弱虫ね

Translation

The evening passes and dawn comes. The moon rises and sets many times.
Only my feelings grow clearer
And only my sadness is purified.

Nameless. Formless.
The moon floats, more pale than transparent.
Awaiting an answer, it passes through eternity.
It mingles with my curses and turns white once more.

Don’t call for me with your unchanging voice.
I yearn for your gaze alone, which has completely changed.

We are fellow travellers in the cold night once more.
I can’t get closer. I can’t distance myself from you.
I’m such a weakling.

Our past love is now a vestige of gravity.
Closer and further away, waxing and waning…
When it wanes, it becomes love once more.
It’s a sad cycle. The moon and the fox.

Pale and radiant. Even if I erase all traces of death,
You won’t even turn back.

Today, I bid farewell to a cold morning once more.
Even if we hug each other, our backs will be cold.
Such was the night.

You are made to wait forever.
I will not wait. Instead, I will rot away.

We are fellow travellers in the cold night once more.
I can’t get closer. I can’t distance myself from you.
I’m such a weakling.

    1. Thank you! I noticed that it sounds a bit different, but I stuck with the ‘traditional’ reading since I couldn’t make it out… I’m still not entirely sure what it is, so I’ll probably leave it as it is now
