恋想花火 (Koiomoi hanabi) – Fireworks of love


from STARTING NOW! single.

——

Just like the memories of that day
You will disappear one day as well

As the festival orchestra echoed
There was a smell of summer ending
At the train station where we met at twilight
You passed through the ticket gate
Today, I’ll say goodbye to you
If only I had a reason to stop you

Peeking at my lowered head
You smiled teasingly
A night only for us, the first and the last
Leaving our usual back lane
I watched your back as you dashed out
Unable to say “I love you”.

As if filling up the hole that’s always been in my heart
The profusion of fireworks in the nightsky sparkle bright
“Isn’t it beautiful?” You whispered quietly
As I gripped your hand tight

When we first met
I fell in love with your cheerful smile
I thought you were so kind
But at the back of that smile
You were shedding tears alone
I treasure you more than anyone else, yet
I couldn’t do anything for you

Goodbye
Can’t be quantified
I’ll never forget
Just like the fireworks we saw that day
You continue to bloom within me even now

As if filling up the hole that’s always been in my heart
The fragments of your tears flutter down
Our disconnected futures are surely
Just a summer illusion

As the fireworks bloomed across the night sky
I cried in a world without you
Even if I marry someone else
I’ll still remember
The damselflies of that one summer
Where dreams swayed

KANJI

いつかあの日の思い出と同じように
君も消えていくから

祭囃子が響く中
夏の終わる匂いがした
夕暮れ 君と待ち合わせた駅
改札口を過ぎれば
今日で君とはさよならなんだ
引き止める理由があったらいいのに

うつむく僕を覗き込み
おどけたように笑う君
最初で最後の二人だけの夜
いつもの裏道を抜けて
駆けてく君の背中見て
好きだなんて、僕は言えないでいた。

心にずっと空いた穴を埋めるように
夜空に繚乱の花火が キラリ キラリ
綺麗だねってそっと呟く君の手を
強く握りしめていた

はじめて出会った頃
誰よりも笑う君に見惚れて
優しい人だと思った
笑顔の裏では
ひとりで涙を流している
そんな君が誰より大切なのに
何もできないでいた

さよならじゃ
形容できない
いつまでも忘れないよ
あの日見た花火のように
僕の中で今も咲き続けているんだ

心にずっと空いた穴を埋めるように
君の涙の欠片が ひらり ひらり
繋げなかった僕たちの未来はきっと
夏の幻だったから

夜空に満開の花火が上がるころ
君のいない世界で僕は泣いたよ
いつか他の誰かと結ばれても
僕は思い出すのだろう
とある夏の日の蜉蝣
夢を揺蕩う
