My favorite WaT song ever. XD It's never gotten very much recognition, but hopefully this will talk some people into listening to it more. :) Reading the lyrics along with the music just gives me chills, every time.

Kanji Romaji English Translation
風笑い空歌うそんな
季節がもうすぐそこに
立ち止まること忘れていた
僕もなぜか足を止めて
ふり返ればささやかなやさしさとか
今思えばあの出会いあの言葉
背中合わせで僕を支えてくれてた

もしかしたらそれは立場とか立前とか
僕に分からないような事なのかも
それまでも僕はきっといくつものシガラミに
包まれて守られて生きている
…ありがとう…

陽だまりに腰掛けて穏やかな空見上げて思う
きっと誰もが心の隅で思い出にすがっていて
未来だとか希望だとか歌っても
空回りして伝わらないのはどうして?
僕らはきっと記憶の海の上で

思い出の海原にユラユラと浮かびながら
生きるたび少しずつ深くなって
たまに海の底まで記憶を探しに沈んで
そしてまた海の上を漂ってる
…いつまでも…

気が付けばいつの間に深くなる記憶の海で
僕だけに正解のこたえ探し
これからのことなんてどうにでも変えられるさ
風はいつでも僕を導いてる
晴れの日も雨の日も見上げれば空はそこに
その手その温もり絶やさぬよう
思い出の海原にユラユラと浮かびながら
生きるたび少しずつ深くなって
…どこまでも…

The season where the wind laughs
and the sky sings is getting close.
I've forgotten how to stand still,
but somehow I've stopped.
And when I turn around, there's love.
And now that I think of it,
every meeting and every word has supported me.

And maybe it was the situation or principles
or something I just don't understand.
And yet, I'm still surrounded by so many people
protecting me as I live my life.
...Thank you...

I sit down in the sunlight and look up at the calm sky.
I think everyone must have memories they cling to in their heart.
Even though I sing of hope and the future,
why am I just spinning my wheels and not going anywhere?
We're all sailing on an ocean of memories.

And floating on an ocean of memories like that,
the longer we live, the deeper it gets.
And sometimes we'll sink to the bottom, searching for a memory,
and float back to the top once again.
...Forever...

I've begun searching through that deep ocean of memories
for an answer that I'm happy with.
I know I can change the future somehow.
The wind is always leading me.
I pray that on sunny & rainy days I can look to the sky
without the warmth of my hands fading.
Floating on an ocean of memories,
the longer we live, the deeper it gets.
...Endlessly...
