Ai Otsuka, "Hoshikuzu" [K/R/T]

Artist: 大塚愛 (Ai Otsuka)
Song Title: 星くず (Hoshikuzu; Stardust)
Single: Happy Days
Track Number: 2
Released: 2004
Lyrics By: Ai
Listen: Youtube

I'm in a bit of an Ai Otsuka kick lately... can you tell? >.O I actually had translated this song years and YEARS ago, but for some reason, it has been lost! Re-listening to it again this morning, I just had to translate it once more. Like her song "Daisuki da yo.", this one is also about death. Unlike that one, however, this one is much more serene. "Hoshikuzu" could also be about anyone, while "Daisuki da yo." is clearly about a lover. This song never fails to give me chills, and on some sad days it's made me tear up as well. T^T

Kanji Romaji English Translation
海のように
冷たくなって
白いその手を
離したくない
このうでの中
閉じこめていたい
もう その瞳に
映らなくても

君に話したい
今日のこの夜の星のコト

微笑んだまま
冷たくなって
白い息が
霧のように

君にあげたい
今日のこの夜の星くずを

明日には ぱらぱらと 灰になって
灰になって 灰になって
星となる?

君に話したい 今日のこの
夜の星のコト
umi no you ni
tsumetaku natte
shiroi sono te wo
hanashi takunai
kono ude no naka
tojikomete itai
mou sono hitomi ni
utsura nakute mo

kimi ni hanashitai
kyou no kono yoru no hoshi no koto

hohoen da mama
tsumetaku natte
shiroi iki ga
kiri no you ni

kimi ni agetai
kyou no kono yoru no hoshikuzu wo

ashita ni wa parapara to hai ni natte
hai ni natte hai ni natte
hoshi to naru?

kimi ni hanashitai
kyou no kono yoru no hoshi no koto
Like the sea,
you have become cold.
I don't wanna let go
of your white hands.
It hurts being shut out
of your arms.
Your eyes have already
lost their reflection.

I want to tell you
about tonight's stars.

Your smile
has become cold.
Your breath is white
like the fog.

I want to lift you up
into tonight's stardust.

Tomorrow you'll be scattered, becoming ashes,
becoming ashes, becoming ashes...
will you be a star?

I want to tell you
about tonight's stars.
