Lyrics: Taishi
Composed by: Taishi
Album: Downloader [Official site]
Release date: 27 May 2011

Requested by: John Hogen

This song seems surprisingly melancholy. I can’t help but feel that it’s about someone searching for their partner, who has abandoned them…


歌詞

眠れる横顔に扉の軋んだ声
小さな言葉達に固まり無口な影

セツナ笑顔貴女が誰かに託した
碧い瞳に揺らめくめぐる想い

昨日捕まえた願いは放した
どうか夢に消えないでって

床に散りばめた形の無い嘘
明日も君を探してる傍にいて

綺麗な水槽に心を奪う螺旋
終わりの無い予感に溢れて流れ出した

草の陰に見つけたよく似た形の
淡い光に優しく包み込んで

下を向かないで明日を信じて
変わり続けることないって

夢は叶うほど未来は見えなくて
記憶片隅に宿る欠片たち

遠い昔夢を集めてた
ぼやけて滲んだ君と笑顔
漂う想いめぐり合う
碧い瞳に揺らめきユラユラリ映すから

昨日捕まえた願いは放した
どうか夢に消えないでって

床に散りばめた形の無い嘘
明日も君を探してる傍にいて

nemureru yokogao ni tobira no kishinda koe
chiisana kotoba-tachi ni katamari mukuchi na kage

setsuna egao anata ga dareka ni takushita
aoi hitomi ni yurameku meguru omoi

kinou tsukamaeta negai wa hanashita
douka yume ni kienai de tte

yuka ni chiribameta katachi no nai uso
asu mo kimi wo sagashiteru soba ni ite

kirei na suisou ni kokoro wo ubau rasen
owari no nai yokan ni afurete nagare dashita

kusa no kage ni mitsuketa yoku nita katachi no
awai hikari ni yasashiku tsutsumi konde

shita wo mukanaide ashita wo shinjite
kawari tsudzukeru koto nai tte

yume wa kanau hodo mirai wa mienakute

tooi mukashi yume wo atsumeteta
boyakete nijinda kimi to egao

aoi hitomi ni yurameki yura yurari utsusu kara

kinou tsukamaeta negai wa hanashita
douka yume ni kienaide tte

yuka ni chiribameta katachi no nai uso
asu mo kimi wo sagashiteru soba ni ite

Translation

The creaking of a door drifted across a sleeping face.
A silent figure had been hardened by small words.

You entrusted a momentary smile to someone,
With feelings flickering inside your blue eyes.

I set loose the wishes that I caught yesterday
Saying “please, don’t disappear into a dream…”

Formless lies are inlaid into the floor.
I will search for you again tomorrow. Be by my side…

A helix stole my heart away inside a beautiful aquarium.
It was brimming with endless premonitions, which flowed forth.

I am wrapped up in pale light, so similar to you,
Which I found in the shadow of the grass.

Don’t look down. Believe in tomorrow.
There’s no need to keep changing.

I can’t see a future in which my dreams will come true.
Fragments dwell in nooks and crannies of my memories.

I had gathered dreams together in the distant past—
You and your smile were dim and blurred…
I come across drifting feelings
Because they appear, slowly swaying, in your blue eyes.

I set loose the wishes that I caught yesterday,
Saying “please, don’t disappear into a dream…”

Formless lies are inlaid into the floor.
I will search for you again tomorrow. Be by my side…
