Album: Deep Forest
Track Number: 11

This song almost moves me to tears everytime I listen to it! It has been one of my all-time favorite songs for years now, so I randomly decided last night that it was about time that I translated it. I personally was raised by only my mother, so this song has always had special meaning to me. <3

Kanji Romaji English Translation
隙間ない入道雲の下
あの日は 母と二人
日傘を差して 手を引かれ
步いてた 夏の道

蟬時雨に消えそうな聲で
何度も言った
「みんな1人で生きてゆくもの
振り返らない」

幼すぎる私はきっと
答えられない事を聞き
あなたの背中で いつしか
眠ってた 泣きもせず

これからくる夕立の予感
響く遠雷
あれからの私達をまるで
占うような

あの日のあなたに近づいて
はじめてわかる
突然しゃがみこんで流した
最後の汨

あなたの氣持ち
あの夏のにおい
sukima nai nyuudougumo no shita
ano hi wa haha to futari
higasa wo sashite te wo hikare
aruiteta natsu no michi

semishigure ni kie sou na koe de
nando mo itta
“minna hitori de ikite yuku mono
furikaeranai”

osana sugiru watashi wa kitto
kotaerarenai koto wo kiki
anata no senaka de itsushika
nemutteta naki mo sezu

kore kara kuru yuudachi no yokan
hibiku enrai
are kara no watashi-tachi wo maru de
uranau you na

ano hi no anata ni chikazuite
hajimete wakaru
totsuzen shagamikonde nagashita
saigo no namida

anata no kimochi
ano natsu no nioi
Beneath the gapless thunderheads
with my mother that day,
she tugged on my hand as she raised her parasol
and walked the summer path.

With a voice that seemed like it would vanish in the chirping of cicadas,
she said over and over,
“Everyone lives their life alone.
Don’t look back.”

Being too young, I surely
asked you things that didn’t have answers.
Before I realized it, I fell asleep
on your back, without crying.

The distant thunder echos out
a premonition of the coming storm,
as if predicting how our lives would be
from then on.

Getting closer to you from that day,
for the first time, I understand
the reason why you abruptly crouched down
and shed those last tears.

Your feelings…
The scent of that summer…
