Plastic Tree – 雨中遊泳 (Uchuu Yuuei) Translation

Kanji

Translation

Title: Swimming* in the rain

 

Rain can only fall down, on that aspect people are similar, don’t you think?

Eyes, mouth, fingers, heart and all the rest, they just play to be united as one.

 

Dream and reality waver like a metronome,

no matter which one I watch, they both look the same.

 

We simply met by chance, so after today it will suddenly end,

in this way we will lose so much meaning to our existence.

Struck by the rain, the exit is sparkling and I can’t see it anymore.

 

The rain falls down with the same pace, when I’m there to receive it

the you reflected in the water puddle smile lightly…so many other things…

 

It used to be such a small world… maybe that’s why met…

it was unexpectedly easy… no need to brag about it…

 

Inside this vertiginous vortex, we drag each other and wither, I even lost my umbrella,

While pretending not to know it, even if get all wet, there is no need for a reason,

we just keep falling deep down saying that is fine to bloom and then scatter.

 

The tedium and the passed away days, are plain silly things, they just go to the waste basket.

In your case, you that are wise, throw them away and prepare a new script, ok?

 

We simply met by chance, so after today it will suddenly end,

in this way we will lose so much meaning to our existence.

After the necessary goodbyes, the yesterday will become unnatural

and in that way, everthing will be washed away, but I don’t want to forget…

In the sparkling, I can’t see the exit and I feel lost.

Suddenly, tomorrow comes and when I look up, there’s no more rain.**

 

Notes and Other

*=the word may mean “to swim” but also “to conduct one’s own life”.

**=I still don’t know if what it’s meant here is that the rain stops (but it’s strange because the verb is used only in case of animate object like people or animals and not rain) or if it won’t calm down. Since it is in hiragana is really difficult to understand.
