彷徨えし瞑宮 | Wandering Labyrinth

Been hooked on Asriel lately. Their music scratches the same itch as Adamkadmon. I feel like this song in particular is a good one to end the decade with. May the 2020s treat you all well.

Note: Labyrinth is usually spelled 迷宮、but here it is spelled with 瞑、which is usually associated with sleep and meditation. In other words, don’t think about it as the sort of labyrinth that you would get lost in physically, but one in which you would get lost in thought. That’s my interpretation at least.

☆ Title: 彷徨えし瞑宮
★ Album: Devils Lullaby
☆ Album Artist: Asriel
★ Vocals and lyrics: KOKOMI
☆ Arrangement and composition: 黒瀬圭亮 (Kurose Keisuke)

貴方を想うほど言えぬこの気持ちを
いつまで抱えれるかな

anata o omou hodo ienu kono kimochi o
itsu made kakaereru kana

These feelings for you, words are not enough to express them
I wonder, how long will I hold onto them?

ただ待ち惚けては無いもの強請りした
あの頃 懐かしい

tada machi bokete wa nai mono nedari shita
ano koro natsukashii

I just waited in vain, wishing for what I couldn’t have
I feel nostalgia for those times

(Last night…Ha…)

ひとりのときが長過ぎて慣れ過ぎたから
ふたりが怖くなる
空白の意味 知るはずも無い未来の絵図

hitori no toki ga naga sugite nare sugita kara
futari ga kowaku naru
kuuhaku no imi shiru hazu mo nai mirai no ezu

I’ve spent too much time all alone, and gotten too used to it
such that I’m scared of being together
A blank meaning, a drawing of the future I have no right to know

一秒先 一秒前に 私が居るように
一秒后 貴方の横 誰が居る

ichibyou saki ichibyou mae ni watashi ga iru you ni
ichibyou ato anata no yoko dare ga iru

Like how I’ll be there one second ahead, one second ago
One second later, who will be next to you?

亡くすより詠おう サヨナラのうた
きっと…これでいい
罅割れた硝子に 映し出される虚空
彷徨えし瞑宮

nakusu yori utaou sayonara no uta
kitto… kore de ii
hibi wareta garasu ni utsushi dasareru kokuu
samayoeshi meikyuu

Instead of losing someone, let’s sing a song of goodbye
Surely… it’s fine this way
Reflected in the broken glass is an empty space
A wandering labyrinth

永遠に捧ぐ想いを全部束ねて
強い風を待つの 遠くへ遠くへ運ぶ風を
新しい始まりの丘で 1つ2つ3つ数え手を離す
あの空高くに 舞い上がれ

eien ni sosogu omoi o zenbu tabanete
tsuyoi kaze o matsu no tooku e tooku e hakobu kaze o
atarashii hajimari no oka de hitotsu futatsu mitsu kazoe te o hanasu
ano sora takaku ni mai agare

I bundle all the feelings I’ll offer for eternity
and I wait for a strong wind, a wind that’ll carry them far, far away
At the hill of new beginnings, one, two, three I count as I let them go
May they fly high into the sky

空に 風に 私はなりたかった
星に 君に 私は在りたい

sora ni kaze ni watashi wa naritakatta
hoshi ni kimi ni watashi wa aritai

I wished I could become the sky, the wind
I want to exist in the stars, in you

そうして感じる全てを君と
共に感じて生きていたい

sou shite kanjiru subete o kimi to
tomo ni kanjite ikiteitai

In doing so, I want to live on
feeling everything there is to feel together with you

ずっとずっと忘れることはない
けれど―――『過去』の記憶―――

zutto zutto wasureru koto wa nai
keredo――― 『kako』no kioku―――

Never, ever, will I forget
though they may be —memories of the ‘past’—

永遠に捧ぐ想いを全部束ねて
強い風を待つの 遠くへ遠くへ運ぶ風を
新しい始まりの丘で 1つ2つ3つ数え手を離す
あの空高くに舞い上がれ

eien ni sosogu omoi o zenbu tabanete
tsuyoi kaze o matsu no tooku e tooku e hakobu kaze o
atarashii hajimari no oka de hitotsu futatsu mitsu kazoe te o hanasu
ano sora takaku ni mai agare

I bundle all the feelings I’ll offer for eternity
and I wait for a strong wind, a wind that’ll carry them far, far away
At the hill of new beginnings, one, two, three I count as I let them go
May they fly high into the sky

空に 人に 私は愛を詠い
星に 君に 私は在りたい

sora ni hito ni watashi wa ai o utai
hoshi ni kimi ni watashi wa aritai

I sing of love to the sky, to people
I want to exist in the stars, in you

そうして此処から始まる軌跡を
私は 歩き始めている

sou shite koko kara hajimaru kiseki o
watashi wa aruki hajimeteiru

Like that, I’m beginning to walk
the path that starts here
