[Lyrics] ペンタゴン (Pentagon) - 線香花火 (Senkou Hanabi) [English Translation]

Recommended Posts

-for a request-

 

 

Lyrics: Chizuru
Music: Minpha
Kanji and romaji available at peffy's blog

 

English: Sparklers
I lost words at the all too sudden notice
My quivering voice over the receiver
The motionless time and the back of my craving eyes
Harboring this powerlessness, it was the end of summer

You'll go so far away, I won't be able to reach you with my hands
Look, the last flicker has fallen
No matter how much I yell in regret for the time we lost
Ahh, you are no longer here

These sparklers, flickering, along with the wind
The light of a too short life, disperses in the night sky dolefully
Since then, in the seasons that repeated many times over
I gave you these feelings, in the summer wind

On that day, you gazed at me as you left
What were you trying to tell me with those eyes?
I listened until the end, to your voice even now
I remember, with your thin voice

"Hey, aren't the fireworks beautiful?
I wish it would never end."
I was always searching for an answer
The fireworks that bloom this year, tightens my chest in pain
Look, are you watching even now?

As we grow older, our memories become distant
I'll think of you and light this fire
Short and fleeting, the last light disperses
Don't disappear, don't disappear, just a little longer

These sparklers, flickering, along with the wind
The light of a too short life, disperses in the night sky dolefully

These sparklers, this song I send to you
It'll be okay. Because it blooms inside of me beautifully
Since then, in the seasons that repeated many times over
You began to bloom, in the summer's sky

Again, thanks for fulfilling my request! This is my favorite song of theirs, and I'm glad the lyrics are as lovely as the song.

 

The parallel between the fleeting memories of their relationship with the duration of the sparklers, and how it reminded him of those moments is so beautiful.

yeah, it certainly is a beautiful song. i think the sparklers serve as a metaphor for a person's life span; short and fleeting. and seeing the fireworks every year reminds him of human's mortality, including his friend.
