ヒラヒラ舞う アナタの声音
募る思慕の念 切なくユラユラ

桜アドレイション 海を揺蕩うの
桜アドレイション 香る燈火よ

桃色ひとひら 遠き春の日よ

巡る恋いろは 偲ぶ面影を
誘う夢いろは 胸に咲き誇れ

桜アドレイション 海を揺蕩うの
桜アドレイション 香る燈火よ


hira hira mau anata no kowane
tsunoru shibo no nen setsunaku yura yura

sakura adoreishon umi wo tayutau no
sakura adoreishon kaoru tomoshibi yo

momo-iro hitohira tooki haru no hi yo

meguru koi iroha shinobu omokage o
sasou yume iroha mune ni saki hokore

sakura adoreishon umi o tayutau no
sakura adoreishon kaoru tomoshibi yo


Your voice flutteringly dances.
My desires, yearning for you, painfully flicker.

Sakura adoration. I drift about on the sea.
Sakura adoration. O, sweet-smelling lamp!

The petal is pink. O, distant spring days!

The fundamentals of love surround me. I remember your face.
The fundamentals of dreams tempt me. Blossom in full glory in me heart! (1)

Sakura adoration. I drift about on the sea.
Sakura adoration. O, sweet-smelling lamp!

Translator’s note

(1) These two lines reference the seasonal iroha (いろは) poem used for memorising Japanese syllables. The word has been translated here as ‘fundamentals’ as it is is used in the same way as ‘ABCs’ is used in English.

    Wow, that’s lightning fast O_o Sakura Adoreishion was the only part I kinda understood, but i’m glad that my expectations meet the actual lyrics xD Not sure whether she is reminiscing or anticipating (or both?) but “O, distant spring days!” was so fitting back in january :3 Many thanks again for the translation 🙂

      You’re welcome! I just had to translate it right away when I saw how short the lyrics were. I love winter, but it’s really cold outside where I am now, so I must admit I’m doing a bit of reminiscing and anticipating myself at the moment!

        Yea, it even had a rank 0 on the list :O Not a big fan of winter myself, but it can be really nice too yea. Cold, but also comfy and atmospheric. The timing of translation (especially reading that particular line now) was funny because we just started to have some noticeably warmer days where i live. The last couple of days are even summer-like. Hope spring won’t keep you waiting for too long, like, PCB style long xD
