Sounan

kono hana ga saite kareru made kitto futari ni wa noru mono wo miataranai
sukisai no gendo wo ayamaranai you ni nozomu mama hanasu kyori
kobamu no wo yuruse yo
tsuri ni kowashite chakuchiten ninshiki konnan
“ochite iku.”

kouyatte ima koko de kaika suru kizutsuke ai no kaiwa ga
yokunai tane wo fuyashite mata sodatte iku
aa mou dou ni demo narisou na jitai
kotae ni kidzuitemo mada otagai itoshii to kanjiteiru hijousen
“kyuujo shite.”

fuyu ga kirai to iu hieta te wa tou ni erabarete todoku kyori
tsukamu no wo yuruse yo
isso kowashite minamo ga haruka zujou he
“oboreru.”

kouyatte ima furimuki mo sezu itsukushimi au koto jitai abunai to wa wakatteite mo damatteiru
aa mou dou ni ka naru kamo shirenai
kotae ni kidzuite mo mada otagai hohoemi au mahiru
akai NEIRU! datte shinjitsu nado ni kyoumi wa nai… gehin na shibai de teikoku
hakanai omoi wo masshiro ni kakushite oite
aa mou dou ni ka naru tochuu no jibun ga utomashii
sayou nara
otagai nita kotae no hazu
“deatte shimattanda.”

Disaster

Surely until this flower blooms and wilts, there will be things we can’t see riding us
Mistaking the limit of what we can carry, our wishes stay separated by distance
Permit my refusal
Finally, the landing place is damaged, I recognize the difficulty
“Falling.”

In this way, now, where the flowers bloom, we wound each other with conversation
Augmenting this unfruitful seed that’s still being raised
Ah, how did this situation even come about?
Even if I realize the answer, if we don’t feel a recipriocal love there’s a barrier
“Rescue me.”

“I hate the winter,” reaching across the distance to grasp the cold hand I chose long ago
Permit me to grasp it
There’s still more to break, and the water’s surface is high overhead
“Being drowned.”

In this way, now, without turning around, even if I understand completely that loving each other is dangerous, I’ll be silent
Ah, I wonder if this even happened?
Even if I realize the answer, we’re still smiling at each other in the afternoon
A red nail! After all, I’m not interested in the truth and such… it’s a poorly-scheduled drama
Hide those fleeting emotions away in pure white
Ah, how did I become so middlingly disagreeable?
If it’s like that
I expect our answers are similar
“I regret having met by chance.”
