Negoto – Fuwari no Koto (Gently)

Lyrics: Sachiko Aoyama
Song: Mizuki Masuda, Sachiko Aoyama
Translator: Kafka

In a narrow road that continues to the station
Here lies only the wind and I
The sound of world’s promise wavers
Let it gently reach you

Speaking of the recent you, living things such as flowers begun to grow
Should have I asked that if I have something else to do
“Something important to you” you answered

A person such as you were wonderful
Reminiscing, my left eye burns
Somehow, will I give my best for tomorrow too?
It’s going to be a gentle night

Crossing over countless pools of water
Overcoming these ever-changing feelings
I wonder how long we’ve known each other?
And yet we’ve only just begun

A person such as me can be so shy
However I can’t see that about you
Let’s go home humming an unreliable song
Seems like I’ll have a good dream today

Inhale a little bit and stand firm
And the light on the other side of the road
Will continue to become clearer

Tears are coming out
Because I just can’t forget
The strengths of our weak selves
I apologize as always, so please let’s hurry home
This sound will gently resonate to tomorrow

Japanese Lyrics:

eki made tsudzuku chiisai michi
koko ni iru no ha boku to kaze dake
sekai no yakusoku yureru yo oto
fuwari kimi made todoite ne

saikin no kimi to ieba ikimono ya hana wo sodate hajimeta
hoka ni suru koto nai no to kikeba
taisetsu na koto nan da yo tte itta

souyuu kimi ha suteki datta na
omoidashite hidarime ga atsui
nandaka ashita mo ganbarou kanaa
yasashii yoru ni natteyukeiku

itsumo no mizutamari wo koete
kawari tsudzukeru omoi wo koete
doregurai no koto wo shirerundarou
bokura ha mada hajimatta bakari

souyuu boku ha hazukashikute
kimi no koto mirenasou da kara
tayorinai hana uta utatte kaerou
kyou ha ii yumemiresou dakara

honnosukoshi dake iki wo sutte
massugu tattara
michi no mukou hikari ha sukitootte

tsudzuku yo

namida ga deteshimau no ha
waserete nai kara da yo
yowai bokura no tsuyosa wo
itsumo gomen ne hayaku kaerou
fuwari asu made hibiku yo oto

*Sachiko said that this song is about thinking about the various things going on with your life and how they relate to someone you care for…
**this song is one of my favorite in their first album ex-negoto… it has a refreshing feeling like having kept an accepted unrequited love while choosing to be happy and romantic about it. The piano in this song sounds to melodic and soothing. Brings calmness to be my heart and soul while listening.
