Aspen

Requested by Kevin, this seems to be a classic Ikuko relationship lament.

眠れないのは 闇夜のせいではなく
静けさでもなく きみのやさしさ
nemurenai no wa yamiyo no sei de wa naku
shizukesa de mo naku kimi no yasashisa
The reason I can’t sleep isn’t the darkness of night
Or the silence; it’s your kindness
きみの言葉が この手にたくさん
こぼれそうだよ 手放せないんだよ
kimi no kotoba ga kono te ni takusan
koboresou da yo tebanasenainda yo
My hands are full of your words
About to overflow, I just can’t let go of them
どこまでもゆこう きみは手をのばすのに
ぼくは まだ行くてを決められない
doko made mo yukou kimi wa te wo nobasu no ni
boku wa mada yukute wo kimerarenai
While you stretch out your hands, saying let’s go through it all
I still can’t choose my path
透きとおる きみの目に映るぼく
そのまま闇のなかに包まれてたい
sukitooru kimi no me ni utsuru boku
sono mama yami no naka ni tsutsumaretetai
Reflected in your clear eyes,
I just want to stay enveloped in this darkness
そう 考え過ぎかな sou kangaesugi ka na Yes, maybe I’m thinking too much
目に見えるもの あい色に染まる
きみの呼吸に合わせてみてる
me ni mieru mono aiiro ni somaru
kimi no kokyuu ni awasete miteru
What my eyes see is dyed indigo
I try matching your breaths
このままずっと 笑顔も泣き顔も
なくなってもいい 静けさでいい
kono mama zutto egao mo nakigao mo
naku natte mo ii shizukesa de ii
For smiles and tears to go away for good
Would be fine; silence is fine
きみと過ごした ささやかな時間さえ
すべてなかったことになりそうなほど
kimi to sugoshita sasayaka na jikan sae
subete nakatta koto ni narisou na hodo
What little time I spent with you
Could seem like it never even happened,
こころが張り裂けそうでこわい
きみのやさしさに答える言葉がほしい
kokoro ga harisakesou de kowai
kimi no yasashisa ni kotaeru kotoba ga hoshii
I’m scared my heart might break
I want the words to answer your kindness
今日も 朝日を見たなら kyou mo asahi wo mita nara If today, too, I saw the sunrise
きっと 落ち着いてくるさ kitto ochitsuite kuru sa I’m sure I could calm down
考え過ぎかな kangaesuki ka na Maybe I’m thinking too much
きっと なんでもないんだろう kitto nandemonaindarou I’m sure it’s nothing
