Art Cube – Kasoukyoku

Redolent Song

Staring at the heat haze from the days I can’t return to
Precious sky and fragrant thoughts
Your voice, burning in my chest
The redolent song that descended upon me

Over and over again I’ll pursue and let go of the dream I saw
Gathering my withered heart, I’ll search for things I lost

I gaze at the cracked moon and softly murmur
Even if you’re an illusion, I’ll be warmed by your hands

Staring at the heat haze from the days I can’t return to
Precious sky and fragrant thoughts
Your voice, burning in my chest
The redolent song that descended upon me

I’ll even forget about crying, and untangle my hidden feelings
Gathering my blurry heart, I seek the things I lost

Being guided to a sleepless night, even now I murmur
Even if you’re an illusion, take my hands*

Wrapped in the time I brought back to life
Fragrant thoughts I held one day
A small song dwelling in my chest
The redolent song that descended upon me

Staring at the heat haze from the days I can’t return to
Precious sky and fragrant thoughts
Your voice, burning in my chest
The redolent song that descended upon me

Wrapped in the time I brought back to life
Fragrant thoughts I held one day
A small song dwelling in my chest
The redolent song that descended upon me

Notes:

Kasoukyoku isn’t even a word; “redolent song” is the closest I can get to fit. I think of it as kind of like… a song about a smell that brings back memories?

*In this line it’s written “sono ryoute” (your hands) but Seiji sings “kono ryoute” (my hands).
