ザアザア (Xaa Xaa) – 最後の歌 (Saigo no Uta) Translation

Kanji

Translation

Title: Last Song

 

Aimlessly, I stood still and waited for the wind,

I just made sure I was still wavering and breathing.

 

Once I realized it, I started crying in a corner of the city.

The song I heard was sweet,

even though I know nothing.

 

I want to live inside someone else,

so that I end up vanishing completely.

 

Until I wake up from this dream, if my voice still reaches you,

I will always make you sing close to me,

so that we won’t feel lonely.

 

There’s no sound, there are no people, even so I can live,

if there is just something to eat I’m fine.

 

It always seems like I’m about to break and go crazy

and vanish completely.

 

If one lonely night you won’t be able to sleep,

I’ll gently cuddle with you

so that we could cry strongly.

 

Everything vanishes away without leaving any traces in just an instant,

there’s no meaning in such a thing.

If that is really true, I will always,

always, keep screaming this beautiful lie.

 

Until I wake up from this dream, if my voice still reaches you,

I will always make you sing close to me,

so that we won’t feel lonely.

 

And if we suffer, even if we get dirty*,

we won’t avert our eyes

because we are all born here.

 

Every time you’ll feel sad,

I hope we can cry together close to each other.

 

Notes and Other

*= in Japanese this word has a more deep meaning than just “being physically dirty”, it means “being sinful, guilty” and so on.

Nice ending song for their album, telling that suffering is what makes our lives so difficult but it’s also what makes us all similar: we all share the same emotions even if we live them in a different way.
