望遠鏡のない天文台 (Bouenkyou no nai tenmondai) – Observatory without a telescope

Performed by Passion For You Senbatsu.



from Chicken LINE single.

——

To the old observatory
All alone
Quietly, in the middle of the night
I snuck out of home to come here

Even the telescopes
Have been removed now
The windows are open wide
Like a husk without dreams

Even though we
Looked up countless times
We couldn’t see our heart’s sky

Starlight, the star of passion
Starlight, days of youth
Shine as usual
The starry sky seems sad
Tonight, the blowing wind
Tonight, the smell of summer grass
I remember you
Sweet and slightly bitter
That summer’s romance

The comrades I’ve always
Skipped lectures with
While drinking canned coffee
We discussed our futures

If I could take a peek
Through the telescope then
At myself 10 years later
Would I have done so?

The sunlight reaching me now
Is romance’s halation
It’s the invisible things that are precious

Sunshine, sun and shadow
Sunshine, past days
Even if that form changes
I’ll watch over destiny
Look at the blue sky and clouds
Look at the shimmering heat
Can’t return to that time
Now that I’m an adult
That nostalgic summer

Unrecorded
On the map of stars
That nameless star
We discovered that night

Starlight, the star of passion
Starlight, days of youth
Shine as usual
The starry sky seems sad
Tonight, the blowing wind
Tonight, the smell of summer grass
I remember you
Sweet and slightly bitter
That summer’s romance

ROOMAJI

Furui tenmondai made
Hitori kiri de
Mayonaka ni kossori to
Ie wo nuke dashite kita yo

Ima wa bouenkyou mo
Hazusareteru
Mado ga pokkari aite
Yume no nukegara no you da

Bokutachi wa nandomo
Mi ageteita no ni
Kokoro no sora wa mite inakatta

Starlight jounetsu no hoshi
Starlight seishun no hibi
Kawarazu ni kagayaiteru
Hoshizora ni setsunaku naru
Tonight fuki nukeru kaze
Tonight natsugusa no nioi
Kimi no koto wo omoi dasu
Amakute sukoshi nigai
Ano natsu no koi

Itsumo jugyou sabotte
Nakama-tachi to
Kan koohii nomi nagara
Mirai katari atta yo ne

Moshimo bouenkyou de
Juunengo no
Jibun nozoketa naraba
Boku wa nozoiteita kana?

Ima todoku hizashi wa
Koi no hareeshon
Mienai mono ga taisetsu nanda

Sunshine taiyou to kage
Sunshine sugi satta toki
Sono katachi kawarou tomo
Unmei wo mi mamotteiru
Look at aozora to kumo
Look at kagerou ga yureru
Ano koro ni wa modorenai
Otona ni natta boku no
Natsukashii natsu

Hoshi no chizu ni
Notteinai
Ano yoru ni mitsuketa
Na mo nai hoshi

Starlight jounetsu no hoshi
Starlight seishun no hibi
Kawarazu ni kagayaiteru
Hoshizora ni setsunaku naru
Tonight fuki nukeru kaze
Tonight natsugusa no nioi
Kimi no koto wo omoi dasu
Amakute sukoshi nigai
Ano natsu no koi

KANJI

古い天文台まで
一人きりで
真夜中にこっそりと
家を抜け出して来たよ

今は望遠鏡も
外されてる
窓がぽっかり空いて
夢の抜け殻のようだ

僕たちは何度も
見上げていたのに
心の空は見ていなかった

Starlight 情熱の星
Starlight 青春の日々
変わらずに輝いてる
星空に切なくなる
Tonight 吹き抜ける風
Tonight 夏草の匂い
君のことを思い出す
甘くて少し苦い
あの夏の恋

いつも 授業サボって
仲間たちと
缶コーヒー飲みながら
未来 語り合ったよね

もしも望遠鏡で
10年後の
自分 覗けたならば
僕は覗いていたかな?

今届く陽射しは
恋のハレーション
見えないものが大切なんだ

Sunshine 太陽と影
Sunshine 過ぎ去った歳月(とき)
そのカタチ 変わろうとも
運命を見守っている
Look at 青空と雲
Look at 陽炎(かげろう)揺れる
あの頃には戻れない
大人になった僕の
懐かしい夏

星の地図に
載っていない
あの夜に見つけた
名もない星

Starlight 情熱の星
Starlight 青春の日々
変わらずに輝いてる
星空に切なくなる
Tonight 吹き抜ける風
Tonight 夏草の匂い
君のことを思い出す
甘くて少し苦い
あの夏の恋
