Zansho

“Mule” in this song refers to a particular style of women’s footwear. Since this song is about a specific season, the band has been known to wait until the hot late days of summer to start playing it during a tour. The B-side for this single was Nonbiri, and the music video for it actually includes both songs.

Japanese Karaoke English
残暑 zansho Late-Summer Heat
真夏に夏を忘れてはしゃいだ 変わらない二人を信じて
似合わないミュールで背伸びして歩いた とびきりの二人になりたくて
見えないヒント 気づけたら良かったのに 走る鼓動
manatsu ni natsu wo wasurete hashaida kawaranai futari wo shinjite
niawanai myuuru de senobi shite aruita tobikiri no futari ni naritakute
mienai hinto kidzuketara yokatta no ni hashiru kodou
In midsummer, we forgot about summer and reveled, believing in a couple that wouldn’t change
In mules that didn’t suit me, I stood up straight and walked, wanting to be a handsome couple
The invisible hint, if only I’d noticed it, the rushing beat
もう一度会いたい どこにどこにいるの
もう二度と会えない つなぎとめる引力を
mou ichido aitai doko ni doko ni iru no
mou nido to aenai tsunagitomeru inryoku wo
I want to see you once more, where, where are you
I can’t see you anymore, the tethering gravity
9月の夏をはじめて知った 陽炎にゆれる東京
新しいヒールで階段を駆け上がる 二人で見た夏を探して
目を閉じても それでも消えない 眩しい光
kugatsu no natsu wo hajimete shitta kagerou ni yureru toukyou
atarashii hiiru de kaidan wo kakeagaru futari de mita natsu wo sagashite
me wo tojitemo sore demo kienai mabushii hikari
I saw a September summer for the first time, Tokyo shimmering in the heat
Running up the stairs in new heels, looking for the summer we saw
Even with my eyes closed, it doesn’t disappear, the bright light
もう一度会いたい どこにどこにいるの
もう二度と会えない つなぎとめる引力を
わたしに わたしに 今わたしに
mou ichido aitai doko ni doko ni iru no
mou nido to aenai tsunagitomeru inryoku wo
watashi ni watashi ni ima watashi ni
I want to see you once more, where, where are you
I can’t see you anymore, the tethering gravity
To me, to me, now, to me
つづくことも そばにいることさえも 当たり前じゃ なかった tsudzuku koto mo soba ni iru koto sae mo atarimae ja nakatta Continuation, and being side by side, were not to be taken for granted
もう一度会いたい どこにことにいったの
もう二度と会えない つなぎとめられない
もう夏が終わって 君が君だけがいない
いつかきっと会いたい たぐりよせる引力を
mou ichido aitai doko ni doko ni itta no
mou nido to aenai tsunagitomerarenai
mou natsu ga owatte kimi ga kimi dake ga inai
itsuka kitto aitai taguriyoseru inryoku wo
I want to see you once more, where, where have you gone
I can’t see you anymore, can’t be tethered
Summer is ending, and you, just you, are gone
Someday I surely want to see you, the gravity pulling closer

Late-Summer Heat

In midsummer, we forgot about summer and reveled, believing in a couple that wouldn't change
In mules that didn't suit me, I stood up straight and walked, wanting to be a handsome couple
The invisible hint, if only I'd noticed it, the rushing beat

I want to see you once more, where, where are you
I can't see you anymore, the tethering gravity

I saw a September summer for the first time, Tokyo shimmering in the heat
Running up the stairs in new heels, looking for the summer we saw
Even with my eyes closed, it doesn't disappear, the bright light

I want to see you once more, where, where are you
I can't see you anymore, the tethering gravity
To me, to me, now, to me

Continuation, and being side by side, were not to be taken for granted

I want to see you once more, where, where have you gone
I can't see you anymore, can't be tethered
Summer is ending, and you, just you, are gone
Someday I surely want to see you, the gravity pulling closer
