Kioku

kitto saigo wa koko ni kaette kuru to omou
sekai no hajimari wo futari de miteita
ichido dake sono basho ni tashika ni todoita kara
kono te wo hanashitemo kowaku wa nai no nido to

karappo no karada ni furitsumotte yuku kioku
watashi wo sukoshizutsu tsukutte mitashite
sonna fuu ni hito wa hito no katachi ni naru no
wasuretakunai omoi kokoro ni kasanete

dokomade tooku yuku toki ni mo
watashi wa koko ni kimi no naka ni
kimi wo michibiku hoshi no you ni
zutto iru wa

kimi wo hanarete yuku toki ni mo
mune ni kizanda ano basho he to
watashi wa kitto kaereru kara
furimukazu ni yuku wa

karappo datta mune ni ai to iu na no kioku
kimi wa amaku nigaku sosoide kureta
ichido dake kimi no naka tashika ni todoita kara
kono te wo nobasu koto kowaku wa nai no nido to

tatoe ima mitsukaranakutemo
taisetsu na mono wa mada aru no
kimi wo tada dakishimeta yoru ni
tadoritsuita

kimi wo hanarete yuku toki ni mo
watashi wa koko ni kimi no naka ni
kimi wo michibiku hoshi no you ni
zutto soba ni iru wa

Memory

I think this surely the last place I will return to
We watched the beginning of the world
Because we could surely reach that place only once
Even if I release this hand, I will not be frightened again

A memory of empty bodies piling up
Little by little they build up and satisfy me
In that way a person becomes the shape of a person
I don’t want to forget the feeling in my heart once more

Even when I have traveled far
I am right here within you
Like a star that guides you
Eternally here

Even when I separate from you
That place is carved into my heart
Because I will always be returning there
I won’t turn away

In my empty heart a memory called love
You sweetly, bitterly gave me your strength
After I reached within you just once
I won’t be afraid to extend my hand a second time

Even if I only discover it now
The important things have been here all along
I struggled just to embrace you
In the night

Even when I separate from you
I am right here within you
Like a star that guides you
I will always be at your side

記憶

きっと最後はここに帰って来ると思う
世界の始まりを二人で見ていた
一度だけその場所に確かに届いたから
この手を離しても怖くはないの 二度と

空っぽの身体に降り積もってゆく記憶
私を少しずつ作って満たして
そんな風に人は人の形になるの
忘れたくない想い心に重ねて

何処まで遠く行く時にも
私はここに君の中に
君を導く星のように
ずっといるわ

君を離れて行く時にも
胸に刻んだあの場所へと
私はきっと帰れるから
振り向かずに行くわ

空っぽだった胸に愛という名の記憶
君が甘く苦く注いでくれた
一度だけ君の中確かに届いたから
この手を伸ばすこと怖くはないの 二度と

たとえ今見つからなくても
大切なものはまだあるの
君をただ抱きしめた夜に
辿り着いた

君を離れて行く時にも
私はここに君の中に
君を導く星のように
ずっと側にいるわ
