Yakusoku no uta

miharukasu daichi wa aoku hatenaku tsudzuki
ten wo sasu hosaki wa hikari atsumete yureru

itsuno mukashi kara ka oboeta uta wa yagate
kuchibeni ni some sora wo koete wa hibiku

itsuka todoku deshou
watashi wo matsu hito ni

kaze to kawasu daichi to kawasu
yakusoku no uta towa ni
sakebu you ni inori no you ni
utae utae yo towa ni

tane wa inochi yadoshi mizu wo motomete nemuru
onaji sono kizashi wo daremo ga daite nemuru

dakara itsumo koishii
furisosogu hikari ga

yagate tooku minareta sora wo
hanareru toki ga kitemo
itsumo itsumo wasure wa shinai
yakusoku no uta towa ni

itsunohika kono hitomi tojitemo
kono koe ga karetemo
uta dake ga itsumo mitsumeteiru
aoi aoi chihei wo

kaze to kawasu daichi to kawasu
yakusoku no uta towa ni
sakebu you ni inori no you ni
utae utae yo towa ni

Promise Song

The view of the earth, pale, never ending
A ear of wheat pointing to heaven, collecting the light, sways

I soon remembered a song from those olden days
From red-colored lips it echoes across the sky

Someday it will reach
The person who waits for me

Evading the wind, evading the earth
This promise song, eternally
Like shouting, like a prayer
Sing, sing, eternally

A seed carries life, a water-seeking sleep
That same omen, sleeping in someone’s embrace

Therefore, someday, my beloved
The light will pour down

Before long, even if the time comes
To separate from the distant sky I’ve grown used to
Someday, someday, I won’t forget
This promise song, eternally

One day, even if I close these eyes
Even if this voice grows hoarse
That song alone watches
Forever, the blue blue horizon

Evading the wind, evading the earth
This promise song, eternally
Like shouting, like a prayer
Sing, sing, eternally

約束のうた

見晴るかす大地は 青く 果てなく続き
天を指す穂先は 光 集めて揺れる

いつの昔からか 憶えたうたはやがて
唇紅に染め 空を越えては響く

いつか届くでしょう
私を待つひとに

風とかわす 大地とかわす
約束のうた 永久に
叫ぶように 祈りのように
うたえうたえよ 永久に

種は 命宿し 水を求めて眠る
同じその兆しを 誰もが抱いて眠る

だからいつも恋しい
ふりそそぐ光が

やがて遠く 見慣れた空を
離れる時がきても
いつもいつも 忘れはしない
約束のうた 永久に

いつの日か この瞳閉じても
この声が 嗄れても
歌だけが いつも見つめている
青い青い地平を

風とかわす 大地とかわす
約束のうた 永久に
叫ぶように 祈りのように
うたえうたえよ 永久に
