非公式の英訳/Unofficial translation

In a sunny spot
look up—the sky is endless.
It’s somewhat nostalgic, and something in my heart comes undone.

The seasons pass and I wait
for my small prayer to bud.
I have a long dream in silence,
a dream of dawn spreading its wings.

I do the same things over and over beneath the darkening western sky
I will wait here forever.
While still looking at a small star that’s been born,
I remember the raindrops beating against my cheek, even now.

One by one
the cotton-like clouds drift on the breeze
Their journey continues so they can fulfil their promises.

Even if our wings are wounded, painful, or dirty,
let’s head for the hill on earnest feet.
Humans don’t know that those steps
will surely make flowers bloom to the sky.

Let’s go to welcome tomorrow, leading the gentle breeze with us.
Even if we lose our way
we can keep walking from now.
I still remember the morning glow I saw back then.

Because I’m here, because I’m thinking of you
and because I’m by your side, smile!

A transparent colour spreads out. It’s the colour of beginnings, the colour of daybreak.
What are you thinking about beyond the horizon? The future remains uncertain.
I raise my hands high, letting them ride upon a song.
Now, let’s take off.

Looking, listening, feeling, overlapping, crying and laughing.
I want to spend my days with you.

A rainbow bridge was born from our joined hands.
It will surely cross over time and link us.
When tears cloud my vision, I can always remember
our smiles from back then.

Because I’m here, because I’m thinking of you
and because I’m by your side, smile!
