A.B.C-Z Akidzuki Lyric Translation

アキヅキ (Usually written as 秋月 and pronounced shuugetsu) literally means “Autumn Moon” or what is often called the “Harvest Moon” in English. This is such a lovely song about an Autumn love that has changed with the seasons. I’m sad it didn’t make it into the concert. I feel like it really suits Goseki’s voice and for some reason it’s the song on the album that I associate with him the most.

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation

 

The light of the moon floating in the sky

Let me see into your heart

You found me sighing

The night I whispered your name

 

I can send it far away

If I call out with these growing feelings

 

Your shy smile

Is etched into my mind even now so

I see your ghost

In this season that can’t be erased

Like the glowing autumn moon

 

A cool breeze strokes my cheeks

I know that the season has changed

All I want is to keep you here but

I hide my mid-autumn heart

 

That beloved and heart breaking night

The more I think about it the more I want to see you

 

The voice that called my name

I can hear it even now, and all your little habits too

I really loved you

I gaze at the clear night sky

Alone

 

The time that is etched into my mind

Means nothing when you aren’t here so

One more time, one more time

Now

 

Your shy smile

Is etched into my mind even now so

I see your ghost

In this season that can’t be erased

Like the bashful autumn moon

 

The voice that called my name

I can hear it even now, and all your little habits too

I really loved you

I gaze at the clear night sky

Alone and dream
