lyrics

- Waves and Illusions -

Can you see the changing sky?
The sun peeks through
A break in the thick clouds
In a sky that should have already gone

We came from far off in the distance
And no one knows
How far we’ll go

Passing through a layer of air
Where only the birds fly
All that’s left are illusions

Like a flame that never dies
Like a restless wave
Another day is born

The waves are rising
In my mind
The waves are falling
In your mind

And soon against the shore
And soon at our feet
The waves will break
The waves will break

__________


- 波と幻影 (Waves and Illusions) -

空が変わりゆくのを見るかい
いつか失ったはずの空の
ぶ厚い雲の裂けめから
つかのま陽がのぞく

はるか遠くにきた
どこまで行くのか
誰も知らない

鳥たちだけが渡る
空気の層をかけぬけ
残されたものは幻影 (まぼろし)

途切れることのない炎のように
押しては返す波のように
別の一日がうまれてくる

やがて波は高まっていく
わたしのなかで
やがて波は静まっていく
きみのなかで

そしていつかは 岸辺で
そしていつかは 足元で
裂け散っていくだろう
裂け散っていくだろう
