「流星の詩」薮宏太

Yabu’s solo “Shooting Star Song” is a very beautiful but sad love song about wanting to let go of his painful memories but at the same time not wanting to let go, just wanting the pain to go. It’s full of beautiful space metaphors and imagery, it’s a gorgeous song. I feel like this song could easily have been included in the “Your Name” OST.  

Original Japanese → UtaTen


 

I want to see you Oh…

 

My thoughts of you are reflected in the night sky

They aren’t something that can be erased, They shine forever

I wish upon the falling stars

To remember those distant days and the time when I held you

 

I want to see you now, You’re all I ever think about

Looking up at the sky I picture it in the stars

Our future (fill it with colour) and let it go

 

This shooting star song that we danced to together

Floated off into the night sky, A promise forever

Even as I try to move on I’ll wrap you in my unchanging love

Even though you’re miles away

I whispered my wish to the falling stars “I want to see you”

I want to see you even if it’s only in my dreams

Until the wind blows my broken heart far away

I wish for the days that we loved each other to shine

 

Everything was shining when I met you

I hold my lonely past close to the moon

There is no-one in this world who could replace my one and only you

We’ll go beyond that endless shining sky

 

When we looked into each other’s eyes our story started in a galaxy far away

The trickling stars that you cried

Melt into my chest (fill it with warmth) and I remember

 

The thousands of stars that I found with you

The bridge that reaches beyond the night sky

Let’s remember in our dreams the time we had before you walked across it

and the miracle that we ever met

 

I will come to accept these fleeting memories no matter how many times

We’ll overcome your sadness together

In the never ending rain of stars, To an eternal love

 

Because I will love you

Forever and ever

 

This shooting star song that we danced to together

Floated off into the night sky, A promise forever

Even as I try to move on I’ll wrap you in my unchanging love

Even though you’re miles away

 

I whispered my wish to the falling stars “I want to see you”

I want to see you even if it’s only in my dreams

My only wish upon the starry skies is that these overflowing feelings

Will gently blow away on the wind, Please make my wish come true
