歌詞

蒼白き面のその裏側に隠された
幽き色の心は誰知る由もないでしょう

淡い月影が差し照らす細い道
当て所もなく下り行けば
月に磨かれし眺めを映す湖
その畔で出逢いました

月は満ちゆき 待宵の月
愛しき姿 待ち侘ぶ

湖(うみ)に舟を浮かべ水面に映る影二つ
熱き眼差しの先には舟に波立ち揺れる月

弾む心と昂る気持ちに浮かされて
何も見えずに居りました
跳ねる兎と戯れる子供のように
何も知らずに居りました

月は欠けゆき 更待の月
愛しき姿 待ち侘ぶ

冥き湖(うみ)に浮かび夜半の静寂に只孤り
冷たき見えの裏には月が欲しいと泣く子供

蒼白き面のその裏側に隠された
幽き色の心は誰知る由もないでしょう

誰知る由もないでしょう

tsuki ni migakareshi nagame o utsusu mizuumi
sono hotori de deaimashita

tsuki wa michi yuki matsuyoi no tsuki
itoshiki sugata machiwabu

umi ni fune o ukabe minano ni utsuru kage futatsu
atsuki manazashi no saki ni wa fune ni namidachi yureru tsuki

hazumu kokoro to takaburu kimochi ni ukasarete
nani mo miezu ni orimashita
haneru usagi to tawamureru kodomo no you ni
nani mo shirazu ni orimashita

tsuki wa kake yuki fukemachi no tsuki

tsumetaki mie no ura ni wa tsuki ga hoshii to naku kodomo

aojiroki omote no sono uragawa ni kakusareta
kasokeki-iro no kokoro wa dare shiru yoshi mo nai deshou

dare shiru yoshi mo nai deshou

Translation

There was no way anybody would know the faint heart
hidden behind your pale face.

Pale moonlight shines on the narrow path.
When I aimlessly went down it
I saw a lake illuminated by the moon, reflecting the surrounds.
I met you at that ridge.

The moon is full on matsuyoi, the waiting night. (1)
I tire of waiting for you, my beloved.

I float a boat on the lake, and two figures are reflected on its surface.
My passionate gaze rests on the moon, sent rippling by the boat.

I was delirious from my beating heart and my excitement
and I was blind.
Like the hopping rabbits and playing children
I was ignorant.

The moon wanes. It is a fukemachi moon. (2)
I tire of waiting for you, my beloved.

I float alone in the stygian lake at midnight.
The children weep beneath their coldness, wanting the moon.

There was no way anybody would know the faint heart
hidden behind your pale face.

There was no way anybody would know.


Translator’s notes

(2) 更待 (fukemachi) refers to the night of the 20th day of the lunar month. On this night, the moon rises later than usual. For more information, see this resource.
