Reunion

I was a bit disappointed that we didn’t get another emo Ayame song again, but this one really grew on me. It inspires a lot more warm feelings than the last couple Ayame songs. As for the following outro to the album, I think it could either be a bit shorter or end in a blaze instead of ending like a candle going out slowly.

いつでも私の少し先を歩く
まるで守られてるそれが嬉しくて

itsu demo watashi no sukoshi saki o aruku
maru de mamorareteru sore ga ureshikute

You always walk just a little bit ahead of me
It’s as if I’m being protected, which makes me happy

並べない悔しいそんなことばかり
言うといつも君は優しく笑った

narabenai kuyashii sonna koto bakari
iu to itsu mo kimi wa yasashiku waratta

After talking about not being able to be next to you
and being frustrated, you always smiled kindly

巡り来る春の桜舞うように香る桜
曲がり角会えたらいいな
もう一度会えたらいいな

meguri kuru haru no sakura mau you ni kaoru sakura
magarikado aetara ii na
mou ichido aetara ii na

The sakura come around with spring, the sweet smelling sakura flutter
I wish I could see you just around the corner
I wish I could see you just one more time

少しだけ変われたかな
前よりも変われたかな
いつまでも不器用で笑って誤魔化して

sukoshi dake kawareta kana
mae yori mo kawareta kana
itsu made mo bukiyou de waratte gomakashite

I wonder if I was able to change a little
If I was able to change even more than I did before
but I’ll always be awkward, smiling and making up excuses

晴れた日の甘い匂い 少し目眩がする
それはとても懐かしくて
曇りの日はきっと モヤモヤしちゃうから
好きなことだけをしよう
雨の日の憂鬱時に心地良くて
君のことを考えてる
答えは多分そう 一つじゃないはずさ
風を超えてくその向こう

hareta hi no amai nioi sukoshi memai ga suru
sore wa totemo natsukashikute
kumori no hi wa kitto moyamoya shichau kara
suki na koto dake o shiyou
ame no hi no yuuutsu toki ni kokochi yokute
kimi no koto o kangaeteru
kotae wa tabun sou hitotsu janai hazu sa
kaze o koete ku sono mukou

On sweet smelling sunny days, I feel a little dizzy
It really brings me back to the good old days
On cloudy days, I’m sure we’ll feel a little down
so let’s just do things that we like
On rainy days, the gloominess sometimes feels comfy
I’ll be thinking of you
There should probably be, you guessed it, more than one answer
Overcome the wind and go beyond

冷めたコーヒーが好きだと語る君
惹かれていたのずっと背伸びするぐらいに

sameta koohii ga suki da to kataru kimi
hikareteita no zutto senobi suru gurai ni

I was drawn to you when you talked about how you liked cold coffee
To the point where I’m always trying to make myself look better

巡り来る春の桜舞うように香る桜
曲がり角会えたらいいな
もう一度会えたらいいな

meguri kuru haru no sakura mau you ni kaoru sakura
magarikado aetara ii na
mou ichido aetara ii na

The sakura come around with spring, the sweet smelling sakura flutter
I wish I could see you just around the corner
I wish I could see you just one more time

少しだけ変われたかな
前よりも変われたかな
いつまでも不器用で笑って誤魔化して

sukoshi dake kawareta kana

Pleasant Place

Very good. While I liked Don’t Lose from Ignition Dancehall because it was a change in style from Ice Break and Unchain Pendulum, I didn’t like the lyrics. These lyrics are a lot better, I think, bringing her back to her rightful place as QUEEN OF ALST.

息を止めて 鼓動だけ感じてた
まぶた閉じて 温度だけ感じてた
縛られてた 動けない そんな日々
進めない もどかしさだけ

iki o tomete kodou dake kanjiteta
mabuta tojite ondo dake kanjiteta
shibarareteta ugokenai sonna hibi
susumenai modokashisa dake

I held my breath and just felt my pulse
I closed my eyes and just felt the heat
I was bound and couldn’t move, such were those days
Filled with frustration, unable to move forward

変われない 言い訳で
変わりたい 本心は
愛せない 意気地なし
愛したい 誰よりも

kawarenai iiwake de
kawaritai honshin wa
aisenai ikujinashi
aishitai dare yori mo

My excuses stop me from changing
but I do want to change deep inside
I’m too much of a coward to love
but I want to love more than anyone else

陽だまりから 届けたい
点と点が今 結ばれていくよ 優しさで
弾む 踊る 妖精のように
温もりから 繋げたい
線と線が今 行く先を示す 道しるべ
ここが 君の 笑顔が生まれる場所

hidamari kara todoketai
ten to ten ga ima musubarete yuku yo yasashisa de
hazumu odoru yousei no you ni
nukumori kara tsunagetai
sen to sen ga ima yukusaki o shimesu michishirube
koko ga kimi no egao ga umareru basho

Everywhere I want to reach out from this sunny spot to
is now getting connected, dot to dot, out of kindness
Bouncing and dancing like a fairy
Each line I want to connect from this warmth
now acts as a guide to show the way forward
This is the place where your smile will born

時間だけが 過ぎるのを感じてた
だけどなぜか 確かさを感じてた

jikan dake ga sugiru no o kanjiteta
dakedo naze ka tashikasa o kanjiteta

I only felt the time pass by
But for some reason I felt some kind of certainty

掴めない 君の手を
掴みたい その視線
伝えない この言葉
伝えたい 安らぎを

tsukamenai kimi no te o
tsukamitai sono shisen
tsutaenai kono kotoba
tsutaetai yasuragi o

I can’t hold your hand
but I want to grab your gaze
I can’t convey what I want to say
but I want to convey how pleasant this is

陽だまりから 届けたい
点と点が今 結ばれていくよ 優しさで
弾む 踊る 妖精のように
温もりから 繋げたい
線と線が今 行く先を示す 道しるべ
ここが 君の 笑顔が生まれる場所

hidamari kara todoketai
