前触れ (Maebure) – Herald


from Negaigoto no mochigusare single.

We’ve been friends (we’ve been friends)
Since a long time ago (since a long time ago)
We were so close, we couldn’t see each other romantically
You had a boyfriend (you had a boyfriend)
I had a girlfriend (I had a girlfriend)
We both had lovers
Everyone was happy then

Where and what started to change?
We can’t go back to that time…

Love’s (love’s) herald (herald)
Looks like a blue sky without clouds
Forever (seemed to) stretch on forever (as expected)
It’s a sunny day, but a sprinkling (of raindrops)
Why did I fall for you?

It was coincidence (it was coincidence)
That we touched (that we touched)
That instant when we felt pain in our hands
A current passed (a current passed)
Sparks flew (sparks flew)
As if something
Had awakened in a corner of our hearts…

If only we hadn’t noticed
That slumbering feeling

Regretful (regretful) herald (herald)
I experienced and knew it for the first time
Amongst all (so many) of my friends (why only you?)
Why do you make me nervous? I’ve wondered (many times)
Why did I sin?

Love’s (love’s) herald (herald)
If it really exists, I didn’t sense it
Surely (such a thing) is impossible (I repeated)
Yet we were pulled together by the power (of belief)
That was love
