Zen ~然~

Paulownia is “the princess tree” and was traditionally planted with a girl was born, the wood being made into a cabinet as a gift for her when she married. It’s the kind of box that Kanbaru’s devil’s arm was placed in, as well as the severed head in Mouryou no Hako.

There’s probably a lot more meaning that can be pulled from this song than I can guess.

I would guess the narrator is Renko, but if you put enough emphasis on “this isn’t a dream is it?” it could just as easily be Merry.

Remember you can find the next track, 未来予報 // Mirai Yohou here: [link]

ポウロウニア
忘れないでいる
それは悲しくてただ悲しくて
ひとりだけに聞こえる歌みたい

paulownia
wasurenaideiru
sore wa kanashikute tada kanashikute
hitori dake ni kikoeru uta mitai

Paulownia
I cannot forget
It does nothing but to fill me with sadness
As if I am listening to a song only I can hear

空気は澄み 水は透明で 人の声もない
ここはどこだろう 夢じゃないな

kuuki wa sumi mizu wa toumei de hito no koe mo nai
koko wa doko darou yume ja nai na

The air is clear, the water crystal, and there is no one to be heard
I wonder where I am… This isn’t a dream, is it?

廃材の山から伸びてた
手を引き上げたら 時が戻れば
待ち続けてる苦しみは

haizai no yama kara nobiteta
te wo hikiagetara toki ga modoreba
machitsudzuketeru kurushimi wa

If I pulled on the hand stretching out from
This mountain of scrapped wood, and time was rewound,
Would this pain I endure in waiting end?

ポウロウニア
朝焼けに溶ける
そこは老朽した果ての別れ島
語り継ぐ物語よ

paulownia
asayake ni tokeru
soko wa roukyuu shita hate no wakarejima
kataritsugu monogatari yo

Paulownia
Melting into the sunrise
Was an aged and decrepit island of farewells
A story that will be told generations on

ポウロウニア
どこにいればいい
先へ渡る船に見限られたものが
浅瀬にしゃがみ込む

paulownia
doko ni ireba ii
saki e wataru fune ni mikagirareta mono ga
asase ni shagami komu

Paulownia
Where should I stay?
Judged to be of no worth, the ship crossing ahead has forsaken me
As I fall upon my knees in the shallows

対岸から虹が千切れた 不思議だな
君がいないことだけ まだ同じだ

taigan’ kara niji ga chigireta fushigi da na
kimi ga inai koto dake mada onaji da

On the further shore I see a rainbow ripped to shreds, how strange
But in the end, as you are not here, it’s all the same to me

天と地の境目まで
さざなみが届いていたらいいのに
誰1人として残さず

ten’ to chi no sakaime made
sazanami ga todoiteitara ii no ni
dare hitori to shite nokosazu

If these ripples would only reach
To the horizon between heaven and earth
Leaving not a soul behind…

記憶とは雪代
未来とは明日のことだ

kioku to wa yukishiro
mirai to wa ashita no koto da

Memories are like melting snow
The future is nothing but tomorrow

ポウロウニア
話しかけていて
命一つだけ持って
枯れるまで花は咲くべきでしょうから

paulownia
hanashikaketeite
inochi hitotsu dake motte
kareru made hana wa sakubeki deshou kara

Paulownia
I speak to you
May you hold your single life
For you should flower before you wither away

ポウロウニア
波音に摘まれ
風にさらされた街が
薙ぎ払われてしまうまでのうちに

paulownia
namioto ni tsumare
kaze ni sarasareta machi ga
nagiharawareteshimau made no uchi ni

Paulownia
Before you are plucked in the
Sounds of waves, as this city is given
Unto the winds and everything is swept away…

Usami Renko and Maribel Hearn (tokoroten (hmmuk))
