「Waiting for the rain」中島裕翔

Yuto’s song is really sad. It’s about coming to the realisation that all the love has gone from a relationship and there is nothing that he can do to save it anymore. Some of these lyrics break my heart, Yuto!

Original Japanese → UtaTen


Waiting for the rain To wash it all away Waiting for the sun

 

It’s so cold rain It suits the cold Air

We can’t go back Our feelings pass each other by

 

Walking without knowing where, There is no heart when I’m with you

It’s no good I can’t do this anymore and yet the loop repeats

If we end up going back to the way we were the space between us

Will become even more distant I know it but I can’t stop the rain

 

Too late

I want to be loved by you, I can’t even make this wish

If I hold that hand before it grows cold

Maybe you’ll cry for me too?

Soon the rain will stop and I will remain

 

Who changed? Who was at fault? I’m done with this puzzle

I can hear it in the distance, The meaningless question

I don’t mean I don’t want to cherish them, Those feelings that never reached you even after all this time

They are unmelting just like ice and they chill my heart, Is it the same for you?

 

Too late

I want to be loved by you, Even if you come to understand this

No matter what I say there is nothing but sadness

Maybe I can remember your smile now?

Soon the rain will flow and I’ll never catch up

 

Even if we go back to somewhere will we be able to smile?

So small and deep that we can’t see it, Maybe we kept making this mistake?

It was definitely me that clouded your once bright eyes

 

Too late

I want to be loved by you, Even if you come to understand this

No matter what I say there is nothing but sadness

I wonder if there is anything that I can do for you?

Soon the rainbow will disappear I was too late

 

Waiting for the rain To wash it all away Waiting for the sun

Waiting for the rain Waiting for the hard rain
