English Kanji
i remember the days of summer
we were so close together
you were humming the songs of silence
(camassadi laia camassadi laia)
(lamassama soladi camassama laia)
 
 
あの夏の日々をおぼえているわ
私達はあんなに側にいた
貴方は沈黙の歌を口ずさみ
風の竪琴を甘くつま弾いた
(camassadi laia camassadi laia)
(lamassama soladi camassama laia)
 
 
sweetly plucking the harp of wind
ev’ry moment was sacred and mystic
(canalia somadi lanamia somadi)
we were near to the shore of eternity
(calania somadi ala vita somadi)
the days are gone and will never
(cama nadi laia cama sadi laia)
come back
(solte mio i vi ladio)
(vi ladio i detto)
 
 
全ての展開が尊く神聖で
(canalia somadi lanamia somadi)
私たちは永遠の岸辺に近くいた
(calania somadi ala vita somadi)
あの日々は去り もう二度と戻っては
(cama nadi laia cama sadi laia)
来ない
(solte mio i vi ladio)
(vi ladio i detto)
 
 
you were a half of me
(il console i vi ladio)
long time ago
(il sadio i chelo)
(vi ladio i detto)
貴方は私の半分だったの
(il console i vi ladio)
…もうずっと昔のこと
(il sadio i chelo)
 
oh life can never be perfect without you
(canalia somadi lanamia somadi)
but I’m still on my way to the future
(calania somadi alavita somadi)
for I remember your sweet song
(camanadi laia camasadi laia)
in my mind
 
貴方がいなければ人生は決して完全なものにはならないけど
(canalia somadi lanamia somadi)
でも私はまだ未来へと向かっている
(calania somadi alavita somadi)
貴方の優しい歌をまだ
(camanadi laia camasadi laia)
覚えているから
 
 
(i sole vila detto vila detto sole mio)
to the lost horizon
I’m calling your name
again and again
(camine editto)
 
(i sole vila detto vila detto sole mio)
失われた地平に向かって
貴方の名前を呼んでいる
何度も何度も…
(camine editto)
 
though the night is so dark
(sole ditto e meya)
a new dawn is so close to me
(consta mia meya)
sun will come and shine on all
seeds of hope (amine)
bud and bloom (e ma ya)
 
 
夜はこんなに暗いけれど
(sole ditto e meya)
新しい夜明けがもう私のすぐ近くにある
(consta mia meya)
やがて太陽が昇り
全ての希望の種の上に輝くだろう(amine)
芽吹き、花を咲かせよ、と(e ma ya)
 
 
I remember the days of winter
you were sitting beside me
all alone in the shuttered places (camassadi laia camassadi laia)
we were waiting for thawing day (lamassama soladi camassama laia)
 
 
あの冬の日々を覚えているわ
貴方は私の傍らに座っていた
二人きり閉じこもった場所で (camassadi laia camassadi laia)
私たちは雪解けの日を待っていた (lamassama soladi camassama laia)
 
 
ev’ry moment was sacred and mystic (canalia somadi lanamia somadi)
we were hoping the night was eternal (calania somadi alavita somadi)
the days are gone and so far away (camanadi laia camanadi laia)
I’m still singing your sweet song (camanadi laia camasadi laia)
for long
(camine detto)
long windy nights
(canta i mento ah)
 
 
全ての展開が尊く神聖で
(canalia somadi lanamia somadi)
その夜が永遠に続けばいいと思っていた
(calania somadi alavita somadi)
あの日々は去り、もう二度と戻らない
(camanadi laia camanadi laia)
私はまだ貴方の優しい旋律を
(camanadi laia camasadi laia)
ずっと待っている
(camine detto)
風吹く夜に…
(canta i mento ah)

    This is a great break up song!! (also just a great song in general. the background Kajiurago is phenomenal with the great vocals of that singer Dorn)

  2. Tarryl Says:

    WOW! I’ve never seen that Emily Bindiger did the lyrics for this song, that is so cool!!!!

  3. Elizabeth Ellips Says:

    Beautiful composing as usual Kajiura-sama 🙂 but the leading vocalist was kind of Disappointing… But well done to Ms.Emily Bindiger as well, the lyrics fit well with the lyrics style of Yuki-sama, and they are beautiful too

  4. Elizabeth Ellips Says:

    Beautiful composition, As always Yuk Kajiura-sama, but the leading vocalist was kinda of disappointing, but also well done to Ms.Emily Bindiger, she managed to write lyrics similiar to yuki-sama style…
