English

Waiting for the next wind, the night grows old
Waiting for the light of dawn to reveal this city’s story
Over and over, falling into the mortal world
Over and over, the people grow weary
Yet who is waiting there with that stubborn gaze?

As the tea cools with the night, rain falls on a red umbrella
Let me renew my sincere faith once more
Look back on that old city with regret, old friends nowhere in sight
Drifting along as years pass, just as before
Ask not who is there, protecting this lifetime

Flower and sword leave no traces; a lantern, bright, hangs high
Silver butterflies decorate old dreams; care no more for life and death
You have always followed my footsteps, through the countless echoes of this world
And I carry on in silent acceptance, unafraid of falling

A dying lantern flickers, unsettled, as memories climb to the surface
In the late evening breeze, a red-clad figure catches the eye
A gift rarely given, you offer me your unrestrained company on this life’s journey

Worries immeasurable; woes fill the heart
Yet to break this sincerity, an entire city of stars is not enough
No matter who ascends to the heavens, or battles with unknown demons and gods
Muddled truth and lies sharpen the blade’s edge, cutting deep

Flower and sword leave no traces; a lantern, bright, hangs high
Silver butterflies decorate old dreams; care no more for life and death
You have always followed my footsteps, through the countless echoes of this world
And I carry on in silent acceptance, unafraid of falling
(x2)

And I carry on in silent acceptance, unafraid of falling
