Hiding what I can

Shallow Dream

Asaki yumemiji towa ni nageki mo sesu
I’ll have a shallow dream and grieve eternally
Tsuki no hikari kokoro terashidasu
Moyuru hana no mai michishirube

The moonlight illuminates my heart
The dance of the burning flowers is my guide sign

Karamitsuku ayamachi no uta mune o shimeru

The poem of the intertwining mistakes binds my chest

Hatenu kawa ni te o sashi nagasou
Omoi tsumeta koto no ha ai ni somete

I reach my hands into the endless river and let them drift
The words filled with thoughts are dyed indigo

Surechigai ga kokoro morokusuru
Ibasho mo nai mama kaze wa fuku

Passing each other by weakens my heart
While I remain without a place to be, the wind blows

Akai michi ashidori omoku yami ni mukau

On the red road, my gait heavily heads toward the darkness

Ichido nagaseba nido to kaeranu
Yubi ga tsumabiku sadame ai ni somete

If I’m set adrift for once, then I’ll never return again
The destiny that my fingers strum is dyed indigo

Ikutsu akenai yoru o kasanete
Yagate ai no nageki mo kieyuku no ka

How many endless nights do I accumulate
Before the indigo grief will vanish soon?

Hatenu kawa ni te o sashi nagasou
Iro wa nio hedo itsuka chiri nuru mono

I reach my hands into the endless river and let them drift
The color spills its scent and is something that disperses and paints someday

Ai ni somete…

Dyed in indigo…
