Hallelujah

The word “ハレルヤ” seems to have a dual meaning, based on the song’s use of weather as a metaphor for inner turmoil: “hallelujah” transliterated into Japanese syllables, and also “to clear up”, used for cloudy weather.

Japanese Karaoke English
ハレルヤ hareruya Hallelujah
青い春のにおい
甘酸っぱい夕べ
遠く見えた雲は
今にもつかめそうな
aoi haru no nioi
amazuppai yuube
tooku mieta kumo wa
ima ni mo tsukamesouna
The green smell of spring
The bittersweet evening
I see a cloud far away
Now it seems like I could grab it
風がはこぶ話し
誤解をまねく仕草
遠く見えた君が
今ならわかるような
kaze ga hakobu hanashi
gokai wo maneku shigusa
tooku mieta kimi ga
ima nara wakaru you na
The words brought on the wind
The behavior that invites misunderstanding
I see you far away
Now it seems like I could understand you

Painful memories, before long,
Days of helplessness,
Now at last will disappear
