あきのうた // Aki no Uta

Sponsored by: Zen

This is a by-ear-transcription, so some parts are bound to be wrong.

There was some room for interpretation in places so I went all in.

秋めく空の果て
千里の道は遥か

akimeku sora no hate
sen’ri no michi wa haruka

To the ends of an autumn sky…
As ever, the road is neverending…

色なき風が舞い
乾いた花にすら縋った
頬伝う涙が たとえ
心を引き裂いても

ironaki kaze ga mai
kawaita hana ni sura sugatta
hoo tsutau namida ga tatoe
kokoro wo hikisaitemo

As a colorless wind dances
I grasp at withered flowers
Tears running down my cheeks
Even if it breaks my heart…

失うことがただ怖かった
運命に手を引かれ 漂っている
深淵に霞む あなたの
足跡をたどって 会いに行くよ

ushinau koto ga tada kowakatta
un’mei ni te wo hikare tadayotteiru
shin’en’ ni kasumu anata no
ashiato wo tadotte ai ni yuku yo

I was so frightened of loss
I allowed myself to be led by fate, drifting
Now I trace after your footsteps
Vanishing into the abyss to meet you again

夕月より響く虫の音から
重なる旋律は美しく
切なさに包まれてわかるノートが
遠い昔のメロディー
木枯らしが頬を撫でて

yuudzuki yori hibiku mushi no ne kara
kasanaru sen’ritsu wa utsukushiku
setsunasa ni tsutsumaretewakaru note ga
tooi mukashi no melody
kogarashi ga hoo wo nadete

Out of the insect song following the evening moon
Emerges a melody breathtakingly beautiful
Notes I can only perceive enveloped in my pain
Paint a melody from the distant past
As wintry winds brush against my cheeks

桜も満ち揺れて
息が詰まるような瞬間に
ほんの少しの彩りが
私を惑わせても

sakura mo michiyurete
iki ga tsumaru you na shun’kan’ ni
hon’ no sukoshi no irodori ga
watashi wo madowastemo

When the cherry blossoms sway in full
I catch myself at a loss for breath
Their faint color introduces doubt—
Was it so wrong to hope?

失うことはただ恐れていた
幻想に導かれ 彷徨っている
忘却の向こうのあなたへ
想いを胸に抱き 会いに行くよ

ushinau koto wo tada osoreteita
gen’sou ni michibikare samayotteiru
boukyaku no mukou no anata e
omoi wo mune ni idaki ai ni yuku kara

I was so scared of loss
I let myself be led by delusion, wandering
But now, embracing my emotions
I will find you beyond my blocked out memories

夕月より響く虫の音から
重なる旋律は美しく
切なさに包まれてわかるノートが
遠い昔のメロディー
いつまでも胸に響く

yuudzuki yori hibiku mushi no ne kara
kasanaru sen’ritsu wa utsukushiku
setsunasa ni tsutsumaretewakaru note ga
tooi mukashi no melody
itsu made mo mune ni hibiku

Out of the insect song following the evening moon
Emerges a melody breathtakingly beautiful
Notes I can only perceive enveloped in my pain
Paint a melody from the distant past
One that will forever resound within me

嗚呼 目覚める度 何もかもなかったことに出来たなら
嗚呼 夢を見続けられる そんな愚かな夢を見てしまう

aa mezameru tabi nani mo ka mo nakatta koto ni dekita nara
aa yume wo mitsudzukerareru son’na oroka na yume wo miteshimau

Every time I wake up I wonder how life could be
 if I could make it so nothing ever happened between us
Then, I would have been able to keep dreaming —
 as stupid as it sounds, I can’t help but wonder

失ったものを数えてみても
入れ物渦のように消えてしまうから
暗闇を照らすあなたの
思い出をたどって生きて行くよ

ushinatta mono wo kazoetemitemo
iremono uzu no you ni kieteshimau kara
kurayami wo terasu anata no
omoide wo tadotte ikiteyuku yo

Even if I tried to count what I’ve lost
Their container vanishes like a whirlpool in a stream
Now I follow my memories of you
Like lamp posts in the darkness as I live on

別れに染まるすら切なくても
重なる旋律は美しく
いつかの空に消えた私の歌
懐かしいあのメロディー
どうか私を揺らして

wakare ni somaru sura setsunakutemo
kasanaru sen’ritsu wa utsukushiku
itsuka no sora ni kieta watashi no uta
natsukushii ano melody
dou ka watashi wo yurashite

Even if the pain of our parting paints me black
What melody emerges is breathtakingly beautiful
My song I lost to the skies long ago
That nostalgic melody —
Move me as I sing once again…
