歌詞

手慰みにはじめた
宛先のない手紙
今日も崖の上から
海へと瓶を投げる

深海まで落ちて
押し潰れたガラス
水に溶ける言葉
波紋のように広がる

今日はあかい夕暮れだ
闇がりに耳を澄ませば
たしかに扉が鳴った

鳶色の髪と
香る潮騒
指先が滲む
ガラスのかけら

ずぶ濡れの君が
優しく笑って
あたたかい声で
なにかを祈った

夢をみる僕は
君を知らない
懐かしい声と
ガラスのかけら

ずぶ濡れの君が
僕の手をとる

Romanisation

tenagusame ni hajimeta
atesaki no nai tegami
kyou mo kage no ue kara
umi e to bin o nageru

shinkai made ochite
oshi tsubureta garasu
mizu ni tokeru kotoba
hamon no you ni hirogaru

kyou wa akai yuugure da
kuragari ni mimi o sumaseba
tashika ni tobira ga natta

tobiiro no kami to
kaoru shiosai
yubisaki ga nijimu
garasu no kakera

zubunure no kimi ga
yasashiku waratte
atatakai koe de
nanika o inotta

yume o miru boku wa
kimi o shiranai
natsukashii koe to
garasu no kakera

zubunure no kimi ga
boku no te o toru

Translation

This letter without an address
started as a way to pass the time.
I stand atop the cliff again
and throw my bottle to the ocean.

The crushed glass falls
to the ocean’s floor.
My words melt into the water
and spread like ripples.

The sunset is red today.
I listened to the darkness
and heard a knocking at the door.

Reddish-brown hair
and the fragrant roar of the sea.
Blood wells on my fingertips
from the fragments of glass.

You were soaked
and you smiled kindly.
With a warm voice,
you were praying for something.

You are a stranger to me
as I dream.
I hear your voice, which I miss,
and see fragments of glass.

You are soaked
and you take my hand.

    1. You’re welcome! Because it’s the end of the year, I prioritised this one when I realised I’d be able to translate it in one sitting (^_^);

      No need to keep you waiting when requests won’t reopen until February…!
