cali≠gari – Shoku, Tsumetai Ame

Sequel, Cold Rain

Nothing. I can’t see.
It pours down today too,
The endless rain which loiters in my heart so I can’t smile–

When umbrella flowers started to bloom from the rain-clad street corner,
in a dark apartment, you were searching for the me from that day.

Umbrella flowers bloom differently in the rain-clad alleys.
The scenery reflected in my eyes just stood still,
and I embraced a shadowless nostalgia.

I turned my back on the vacant lot and listlessly raised my eyes.
“Isn’t the rain awfully noisy?”
The intense rain is crying on my behalf.
Alone, I couldn’t even shed a tear.

The changing seasons transform the city.
The scent of rain that you liked. A road of dimmed power lines.
Goodbye to the watercolour vestiges.
On a day of ordinary rain, it was an unsurprising answer.
After the cold rain–

Won’t the sorrow from that day come to me?
Won’t the lost memories come to me?
If I can see the days that I was crushed,
Won’t the meaning of being myself come to me?

The changing seasons transform me.
Happy things. Sad things. A lot of careless things.
Goodbye to the new tomorrow.
On a day of ordinary rain, it was an unsurprising answer.
After the cold rain–

Nothing. I can’t see.
It’s just pouring down today.
The endless rain loiters without a sound.
Surely nobody can see in this rain,
The way is hazy and yet we’ll keep walking.
Forever–
