Negoto – Tashika na Uta ~Song of Certainty~

Song & Lyrics: Negoto
Translator: Kafka

The midsummer sun, I exert my hand to it
Farewell to these footprints of purity
And after knowing about those tears
Ahh, it’s such an unnecessary sadness

With a worn out map under my arms
I have finally arrived here
But still, this place I ended up
I don’t know where this is

The transparent tomorrows
I am at lost for me to believe in them
That these days are so uncertain
However they bind us all together

If the world ends one day
By using reminiscing words
Make them into fresh bouquets
Deliver them with these unreliable palms of ours
To gently spin them into unknown small truths

It’s acceptable to be reckless but with such distinct timing
With that agreed response
The dawn will come for me

Lost meanings, contradictions
Even those are evidences
I want gaze at the truth
Until today becomes soon too far

Even though the world will end one day
Will I have a good dream from this evening?
Let’s connect our unreliable hearts
We are right here so don’t get all uneasy yet
Even though the world will end one day
Just by believing
Let’s embrace the last minutes of our future

Kanji:

真夏の太陽 手を振って
無垢な足跡 さようなら
涙を知った後だから
余計寂しいな

やっとここまで来れたね
擦り切れた地図抱えて
それでもどこに辿り着くかは
分からないけど

見え透いた明日を
信じるため途方に暮れる
とても不確かな日々だけが
僕らを結ぶ

いつかこの世界が終わるなら
覚えたての言葉で
碧い花束を作って
頼りない手のひらで届けよう
誰も知らないような
小さな真実をそっと紡ぐように

投げやりで適当だ でも抜群のタイミング
そんな相槌ひとつで
僕の夜が明けるよ

失くした意味も矛盾も
それすら証なんだ
本当を見つめたい
今日がやがて遠く過ぎてしまうまで

いつかこの世界が終わっても
今夜よりいい夢を見れるのだろうか
頼りないこの心 繋げよう
僕らここにいるよ まだ凝りもしないで
いつかこの世界が終わっても
ただ信じているんだ
ぎりぎりの未来も抱きしめて
