Cinema Staff – Borka

Lyrics: Mitsushima Souhei
Song: Cinema Staff
Translation: Kafka

Amidst the evening calm, Borka slowly dances
She lights a light a candle as she waits for you to come home

On the beach, where Borka still slowly spends her time
While not able to flap her wings since she can’t fly, she sings into the dawning sky

You can make your eyes impure at any time, like being stirred inside a pot
Even though not asking for it, the season changes that thought out matters are now forgotten

At the other side of this sea, is something there?
Wanting to feel it by tying up her small body from end-to-end making it as an antenna

Amidst the twilight, Borka silently sings
Even if the candlelight fades out she still waits for you to come home

Her chilled body gets exposed by the eastern wind
Sadness, Jealousy, Resentment, Pleasure, Love, all become one within her

Amidst the evening calm, Borka slowly dances
She lights a fire on a candle as she waits for you to come home

And so, Borka spreads her wings as she lets out a loud voice
While not able to fly, she can’t be blamed, she sings into the dawning sky
Until you come home…

Kanji:

夕凪の中でゆっくり踊るボルカ
あの蝋燭に灯を灯してあなたが帰るのを待っている

まだ波打ち際でゆっくり遊ぶボルカ
羽ばたいても飛べないから暁の空に歌っていよう

君はいつだってその目を濁らせ 鍋の中をかき混ぜていた
頼んでないのに季節は変わって 考え事はもう忘れちゃった

この海の向こう側に何があるのか
小さな身体の端から端までを繋いで アンテナにして 感じたい

夕闇の中でひっそり歌うボルカ
あの蝋燭の灯が落ちてもあなたが帰るのを待っている

冷えきった身体は東の風に晒されて
悲しみ 妬み 憤り 喜び 愛しみ 全てひとつになる

夕凪の中でゆっくり踊るボルカ
あの蝋燭に火を灯してあなたが帰るのを待っている

さあ 羽を広げて大きな声で ボルカ
飛べなくても責めやしないよ暁の空に歌っていよう
あなたが帰るまでは
