八月の夜 (Hachigatsu no yoru) – August night


from Hachigatsu no yoru single.

——

What I like about you
Are your weird habits
Like the slight upward quirk of your lips
Though you remain expressionless

“I’ll give you a passing mark
You’re doing well”
Just what do you see
When you praise me?

Rustle rustle rustle rustle, as we flutter
Not yet, not yet, not yet, not yet, the delicate distance
Sway sway sway sway, these swaying emotions
Faintly, your fingertips lean in, touching, overflowing
Coming together

August night, a strong “i love you”
Left with the ice-cream we bought on the way home
The next time, the next time
We somehow created it
Getting drunk little by little, drifting
Thawing out the frozen memories
Once again, once again
I’ve always been searching for a reason to see you

What I like about you
Is how you laugh like a child
Its tone, like a beloved melody
Gently embracing us

Nights sounding each other out, like progressing through a maze
The sensation of summer, the sensation of you
Before this summer ends

Rustle rustle rustle rustle, as we flutter
Not yet, not yet, not yet, not yet, our awkwardness
Sway sway sway sway, these swaying emotions
Faintly, your fingertips lean in, touching, overflowing
Coming together

August night, a strong “i love you”
Entwining, racing, taking the long route
Again, my love, again, my love
I somehow restrained it
Getting drunk little by little, drifting
Thawing out the frozen emotions
Once again, once again
I’ve always been searching for a reason to see you

Is it just me? Or is it summer? My body temperature rises
This world with you
I want to shrink it by 1 more millimeter

Rustle rustle rustle rustle, as we flutter
Not yet, not yet, not yet, not yet, the delicate distance
Sway sway sway sway, these swaying emotions
Faintly, your lips lean in, touching, overflowing
Coming together

August night, a strong “i love you”
Left with the ice-cream we bought on the way home
The next time, the next time
We somehow created it
Getting drunk little by little, drifting
Thawing out this frozen love
Once again, once again
I’ve finally found a reason to see you

On this August night, we lean in, touch, overflow
Come together

Kimi no suki na tokoro

KANJI

君の好きなところ
変な癖があるところ
無表情なのに キュっと
上にあがる口角

合格点をあげるよ
上手くできてるね
褒めてくれる 君はいったい
何を見てるの

さら さら さら さら なびくふたりの
まだ まだ まだ まだ 微妙な距離も
ゆら ゆら ゆら ゆら 揺れる気持ちも
微かに指先が君に 振れる 触れ 溢れ
重なる

八月の夜 募る i love you
帰り道に買ったアイス残して
また次を また次を
どうにか作っていたんだ
少しずつ酔う ゆらり漂う
冷凍保存した 記憶溶かして
また君に また君に
会える理由ずっと探してるんだ

君の好きなところ
子供みたいに笑うところ
愛おしくなるメロディー そっと
ふたり包む音色

迷路を進んでくように探り合った夜
夏の感触 君の感触
この夏が終わる前に

さら さら さら さら なびくふたりの
まだ まだ まだ まだ ぎこちのなさも
ゆら ゆら ゆら ゆら 揺れる気持ちも
微かに指先が君に 振れる 触れ 溢れ
重なる

八月の夜 募る i love you
絡まり 空回り 遠回りして
また好きを また好きを
どうにか抑えていたんだ
少しずつ酔う ゆらり漂う
冷凍保存した 気持ち溶かして
また君に また君に
会える理由ずっと探してるんだ

気のせいかな 夏のせいかな 上がる体温
1ミリを縮めたい
君との世界を

さら さら さら さら なびくふたりの
まだ まだ まだ まだ 微妙な距離も
ゆら ゆら ゆら ゆら 揺れる気持ちも
微かに唇が君に 振れる 触れ 溢れ
重なる

八月の夜 募る i love you
帰り道に買った アイス残して
また次を また次を
どうにか作っていたんだ
少しずつ酔う ゆらり漂う
冷凍保存した 愛を溶かして
また君に また君に
会える理由やっと見つかったんだ

八月の夜にふたりは 振れる 触れ 溢れ
重なる
