Ueda Marie – Zakuro no Mi ~Pomegranate~

Song & Lyrics: Ueda Marie
Translation: Kafka

I split the pomegranate into two halves
I’ve ate them well, half by half
Just when I was about to wake up
While the dream I saw forgotten, the sun sets

Right now, on my side
What are you looking at?

The time shared and cut into two
Crosses paths into the far beyond
Your inaudible voice across the receiver dances with the air
Your hands, fingers, hair, eyes, the things I love
Scorching into my body

The memories and dreams that was breathing
Inside my unconscious are squirming

Someday, we’ll understand that this encounter was connected
Just like my heart being washed away
Even the facts, even promises, they dance in the air
The memories, feelings you lost sight of
The reason you shed tears on that day
One by one, I pick them up

Right now, on my side
I wonder where are you?

The time shared and cut into two
Crosses paths into the far beyond
Your inaudible voice across the receiver dances with the air

Someday, we’ll understand that this encounter was connected
Just like my heart being washed away
Even the facts, even promises, they dance with the air
Your hands, fingers, hair, eyes, the things I love
Scorching into my body

You split the pomegranate into two halves
“Delicious” you laugh somewhere

Kanji:

ザクロの実が ふたつに割れた
はんぶんずつを じょうずに食べた
起きる間際 見ていた夢は
忘れゆくまま で 日が落ちる

君は今 何を見てるのかな
僕の片側

ふたつに分け合った刻んだ時間は
遠くまで入れ違ってった彼方
聞こえない声が受話器ごし宙をまう
君の手も指も髪もその目も僕のだいすきなもの
体に焼きついている

息づいていた 記憶や夢や
無意識の中 蠢いている

いつか分かり合った出会い繋がった
心は流れ去ってく宛ら
事実だって約束だって宙をまう
君が見失った思いや思い出
あの日流れた涙のわけも
一粒(ひとつ)ずつ拾っていく

君は今 どこにいるんだろうな
僕の片側

ふたりで分け合った刻んだ時間は
遠くまで入れ違ってった彼方
聞こえない声が受話器ごし宙をまう

いつか分かり合った出会い繋がった
心は流れ去ってく宛ら
事実だって約束だって宙をまう
君の手も指も髪もその目も僕のだいすきなもの
体に焼きついている

ザクロの実が ふたつに割れた
「おいしいね」って 君がどこかで笑う
