Diaura – マリンスノウ (Marin Snow) Translation

Kanji

Translation

I’m pointing to the far horizon of my lost memories

from the depth of a sea that no one knows

I covered my ears from the sound of my steps

and when I closed my eyes I already forgot

In that moment the seasons passed by

as if they wanted to hurry my coward heart

One day, that sadness, like snowflakes,

will fall down and pile up and it will be beautiful…

Marine snow

organizes a bit more this world

and even as just a part of it, I want to exist in it

Oh small light hidden by the swirling dance of the sand

stay* there, without changing, forever

If you remembered a moment of pain

you’ll forget something

Melting into the breathtaking view

I close my eyes and my consciousness plunges deep down

Marine snow

organizes a bit more this world

and even as just a part of it, I want to exist in it

Oh small light hidden by the swirling dance of the sand

stay* there, without changing, forever

Hey, look, the world

isn’t even close to being completely polluted

it’s just a bit too murky

It’s not a farewell

because I’ll keep living even if we don’t exchange any promise

Marine snow

organizes a bit more this world

and even as just a part of it, I want to exist in it

Oh small light hidden by the swirling dance of the sand

stay* there, without changing, forever

The way you are

Beautiful as you are

Notes and Other

*=here yo-ka uses a verb that only refers to people even though the subject is the marine snow: this probably means that the marine snow is just an image linked to a person.

The snow by the sea is generally destined to melt away in a few second, unable to pile up because of the salt in the air: this is the general concept of the song. In the same way that the snow doesn’t stick to the ground, the protagonist can’t completely remember a person from the past, no matter if that person was as beautiful as the snow by the sea. The main character seems to accept this reality, but still hopes that one day the snow will finally pile up.
