atari kousuke - koi - genji monogatari

Love
Vocals: Atari Kousuke
Lyrics: Kobayashi Natsumi

Composition: Hamamoto Hiroyuki

Semete ichido kurai
Furimuite hoshikatta
Semete kaze no you ni
Tada soba ni itakatta

Ichizu na omoi ni kagi o kake
Tojikometa kokoro wa
Ima mo mada amaku kaoru

Anata o   anata dake o
Itsu de mo mite imashita
Sakanai tsubomi no you ni
Mukuwarenai koi deshita

Hoka no hito no tame no
Egao da to kizuita hi
Tooku hibiku koe ga
Mune no oku o shimetsukeru

Akirameraretara raku ni naru
Yureugoku kokoro ni
Kurikaeshi iikikasete

Anata o   anata dake o
Omotte nakitsuzuketa
Tobenai kotori no you ni
Yukiba no nai koi deshita

Sakura maichiru sora wa tasogare
Setsunasa mo itami sae mo kakaeta mama

Anata o   anata dake o
Itsu de mo mite imashita
Sakanai tsubomi no you ni
Mukuwarenai   yukiba no nai koi deshita

I wanted you to turn and face me
For once at least
I simply wanted to be by your side
Like the wind at least

The heart that shut away
And locked up single-minded feelings
Is still sweetly fragrant now

I was gazing at you
Only you, all the time
Like a flower bud that won’t bloom
It was an unrequited love

The day when I realized that your smile
Was for someone else
Your voice echoing from far away
Grips something deep in my chest

‘If you can give it up, you’ll be at ease’
I repeatedly told
My wavering heart

Thinking of you, only you
I kept crying out
Like a little bird that can’t fly
It was a love that had no place to be

The sky with fluttering sakura petals is in dusk
While I still held onto suffering, and even pain

I was gazing at you
Only you, all the time
Like a flower bud that won’t bloom

It was an unrequited love that had no place to be


'perhaps the only difference between me and other people was that I've always demanded more from the sunset; more spectacular colors when the sun hit the horizon. that's perhaps my only sin.'.
