Midnight Blue

Midnight blue 

I tried my best to love you 

Midnight blue with no moon 

I don't know when this dark night will end 

Dreaming of the dawn 

Again I'm feeling midnight blue tonight 

 

Midnight blue 

I can't help feeling hopeless 

Midnight blue with no stars 

I don't know when this deep night will end 

Turning almost black 

Midnight blue

 

Midnight blue 

I'm sinking away 

Like the moon disappearing in the morning 

Alone I wash my long black hair 

The mirror of the water basin trembles 

as it reflects my teary eyes 

I don't how I am going to live 

Now that I have lost love 

Even a question like this is being washed away 

in the midnight blue 

 

Midnight blue 

I can't help feeling hopeless 

Midnight blue with no stars 

I don't know when this deep night will end 

Turning almost black 

Midnight blue

Sakura Dayori (Cherry Blossom Letter) 

In spring 

On rainy days 

A small figure stood 

In front of the train station 

You were waiting for me 

With a pink umbrella 

I still remember it 

Blooming in the rain like a cherry blossom 

 

Mother 

In this foreign land I live 

Cherry blossoms are now in season 

But people don't seem to care 

passing hastily by the trees 

 

Mother I am standing alone 

and reading 

As if they were letters from home 

The scentless petals one by one 

 

Ever since I can remember 

I was stubborn and made you worry so 

I thought I was living by myself 

I wanted to prove I could be on my own 

What a selfish child I have been, but... 

I have learned little by little 

how to trust changing seasons 

I still have many whys 

Then I hear your voice saying, 

"It is all right, my dear, just be happy, be safe."

 

In this foreign land 

Where my soul will be buried someday 

Cherry blossoms are in full bloom 

The spring light pours down on me gently 

As if to heal the weary traveler's heart 

 

Mother 

I am standing alone 

and reading 

As if they were letters from you 

Cherry blossom petals one by one 

one by one...
