Shizuka na yoru ni azayakana neon nijimasu amaoto ga
irotoridori no hitotachi o machi kara keshiteiku
Itsukaraka toumei na kimi sagasu me no mai ni iru no ni
surinukete umaku tsukamezu yagate miushinau
Kaiten mokuba imi nakushita yasuragi mo yume no hazama ni
kieteiku yo aidentiitii kimi no kioku mo sotto
Kaiten mokuba eien nante boku ni hitsuyou nakatta
tada mou sukoshi kanau naraba kimi to waraitakatta
Mawaru keshiki ga kagayaite futari wa toki o wasureta ne
nukumori tsutaeru tsunaida te wa hanasanai sou kimeta
Kurikaesu nichijou no naka tsune ni hitogomi ni magirete
higeki o enjidashita nara kanashii ketsumatsu
Kaiten mokuba ano hi kimi ga suroomooshon de waraikake
kowarekaketa bideo no you ni nandomo kurikaeshite
Kaiten mokuba shigamitsuiteru mada furiotasarenai you ni
hanasanai ga hanasanakute koko kara nigedasenai
Meguri mawari setsunai hodo maru de ano hi no meriigooraundo
karisome no shiawase no tsuzuku koto wa naku
Kaiten mokuba kanashii ame mo yagate yamu to oshietekureta
sonna kimi no aidentiitii kese shinai darou
Aishiteita sono subete mo itsuka monokuromu ni toketeiku
ano hi no mama kaiten mokuba egao no futari nosete
In the quiet night, the sound of the rain which fades the bright light of the neon
erases the multicoloured people from the city.
I search for you, so transparent, for so long, even though you are before my eyes
I couldn’t grasp your image, you slip away and I lose your sight.
Like a merry-go-round, even serenity has lost its sense in this threshold of a dream,
and slowly both my identity and the memories of you are fading away.
Like a merry-go-round, I don’t need things like eternity,
but if just one of my wishes could come true, I wish I laughed with you.
The turning scenery shimmers, the two of us surely forgot those times…
Our hands, together transmitting warmth, decided to “Not let go”
In the daily routine which is always the same, every time you disappear into the crowd,
and if a tragedy happened, it would a sad conclusion.
Like a merry-go-round, that day you softly laughed in slow-motion
and, like a broken video, that image rewinds so many times
Like a merry-go-round, and I’m still clinging to it, as if it won’t shake off of me,
you can’t let go of that “I won’t let go”, you can’t run away from here.
And it turns and repeats itself to the point it hurts, just like the merry-go-round of that day
but there’s no following to this transient happiness.
Like a merry-go-round, you taught me that this sad rain will end,
I won’t erase the identity of that you.
My love and all the rest one day will melt with no colour
and just like that day on the merry-go-round, please put a smile on our faces.
Notes and Other
Amazing song by Purple stone, talking about the image of a love who keeps on showing up in the memories of the author.
