「千夜一夜」 “A Thousand Nights in One”


Kanji Romaji English
この場所を出て歩く
道の事を考える
空はまだ早い夕方
雲に色を
残して
隣の子供は同じ歌
もう三度も歌ってる
終わる言葉思い出せず
最後だけずっと繰り返して
kono basho wo dete aruku
michi no koto wo kangaeru
sora wa mada hayai yuugata,
kumo ni iro wo
nokoshite
tonari no kodomo wa onaji uta
mou san do mo utatteru
owaru kotoba omoi dasezu
saigo dake zutto kurikaeshite
I walk away from here,
pondering which way to go.
The sun is setting early,
painting the clouds with its glow
as it disappears.
The children next to me are singing
the same song for the third time.
Unable to remember the words to end it,
they repeat the last verse over and over.
始めも終わりもいらなかった
君の目が
呟いた
どんな記憶を探したら
胸の深みへ届くのだろう
長すぎた
君の言う日々は
一夜の夢のようで
終わる言葉信じられない
目覚めの時はまだ遠い
hajime mo owari mo iranakatta
kimi no me ga
tsubuyaita
donna kioku wo sagashitara
mune no fukami he todoku no darou
nagasugita,
kimi no iu hibi wa
hitoyo no yume no you de
owaru kotoba shinjirarenai
mezame no toki wa mada tooi
Your eyes whispered,
“We don’t need beginnings or endings.”
What kind of memories do I have
to search for that will reach deep
into my heart?
The days that you said were too long
seemed like a dream that lasted
just one night.
I can’t believe that it is coming to an end,
it is too early to wake up.
千の夜を消せないで
まだここを立てない
sen no yoru wo kesenai de
mada koko wo tatenai
Don’t make the 1,000 nights disappear.
I can’t leave here just yet.
誰の心も動かせない
ただの無口なシエラザード
幾つの夜を重ねても
ーつの恋さえ語れない
温もりにもなれなかった
寝物語は何処へ消えて
君の優しい言葉だけ
せめて
覚えておきたかった
dare no kokoro mo ugokasenai
tada no mukuchi na SHIERAZAADO
ikutsu no yoru wo kasanete mo
hitotsu no koi sae katarenai
nugumori ni mo narenakatta
nemono gatari wa doko he kiete
kimi no yasashii kotoba dake
semete
oboete okitakatta
I’m merely a silent Scheherezade
who can’t move anyone’s heart.
No matter how many nights pass,
I can’t talk about even one love.
I couldn’t even get used to warmth.
Where did the bedtime story
disappear to?
I wanted to at least remember
your gentle words.
千の夜を消せないで
一人の道に席を立つ
sen no yoru wo kesenai de
hitori no michi ni seki wo tatsu
Don’t make the 1,000 nights disappear.
I stand up to walk a lonely path.
優しい言葉だけせめて
覚えておきたかった
一つの夜に
消えた千の夜を…
yasashii kotoba dake semete
oboete okitakatta
hitotsu no yoru ni
kieta sen no yoru wo……
I wanted to at least remember
your gentle words,
remember the 1,000 nights that
disappeared in a single night…
