Yume Sekai

“Yume Sekai” (Dream World) by Tomatsu Haruka.

This is a song I really enjoy from one of my favorite anime titles this season: Sword Art Online. I think it sounds very pretty. Lyrics and translation below.

Lyrics by Furuya Shin.

KANJI LYRICS

いつからかこの胸で揺れてる光
手放したくはない
遠回りしても 躓いてもここに
ずっと ずっと 光ってる…

遠くに聞こえた鐘の音が少し寂しくて
もう一度強く今度は高く駆け抜けた

ただ繰り返す現実も
星の数の願い事も
目指すべき明日を見つけた
この想いには勝てない

目の前に開かれた果てない世界
たとえ仮想(ゆめ)でもいい
迷い続けても胸の奥で強く
ずっとずっと響いてく

幼いリボンを捨てた夜から見た夢は
輝いた街で理想の日々を送ってた

傷つかない場所目指して
翼ばかり求めたけど
この背中にただ1つの守るものがあればいい

少しずつ鮮やかに彩る世界
感じたままでいい
微笑みの色も巡り逢いの色も
もっともっと変わってく

答えが無くて 目指そうとして
綺麗じゃなくて 諦めなくて
私もきっとこの世界と似てる信じ続けてる

新しい涙で見えて来た未来
怖がらなくていい
心の傷みと探してた景色は
きっときっと重なる

限りなく
目の前に開かれた果てない世界
たとえ仮想(ゆめ)でもいい
迷い続けても胸の奥で強く
ずっとずっと響いてく

ずっとずっと響いてる…

そっとそっと光ってる…

ROMAJI LYRICS

Itsu kara ka kono mune de yure teru hikari
Te banashi taku wa nai
Too mawari shite mo tsumazu ite mo koko ni
Zutto zutto hikatteru…

Tooku ni kikoeta kane no ne ga sukoshi samishi kute
Mou ichido tsuyoku kondo wa takaku kake nuketa

Tada kuri kaesu genjitsu mo
Hoshi no kazu no negai goto mo
Mezasu beki asu wo mitsuketa
Kono omoi niwa kate nai

Me no mae ni hira kareta hate nai sekai
Tatoe yume demo ii
Mayoi tsuzu kete mo mune no oku de tsuyoku
Zutto zutto hibi iteku

Osanai ribon wo suteta yoru kara mita yume wa
Kagaya ita machi de risou no hibi wo okutteta

Kizu tsuka nai basho meza shite
Tsubasa bakari motometa kedo

Sukoshi zutsu azayaka ni irodoru sekai

Tatoe yume demo ii
Mayoi tsuzu kete mo mune no oku de tsuyoku
Zutto zutto hibi iteku

Zutto zutto hibi iteru…

Sotto sotto hikatteru…

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

I don’t know when it appeared, but I don’t want to let go
Of this flickering beam of light in my heart
Even if I have to take a detour, even if I trip and fall, right here
Forever and ever, it will be glowing…I hear the distant sounds of the clock, they seem a little lonely

Trying again strongly, going high this time, and I went through it in a reality that keeps repeating itself
I have as many wishes as the number of stars
But I’ve found a tomorrow that I should be aiming for
I can’t go against this feeling
An endless world opens up before my eyes
It doesn’t matter if this just a dream

Even if I keep getting lost, deep inside my heart
Forever and ever, it will keep on resonatingThe dream I had since the night I threw away the childish ribbon
On the glittering streets, I was spending an ideal life
Heading for the place where I’ll never get hurt
I kept longing for wings, but all I need
Is really just one thing on my back that needs my protection

Colors and light are slowly filling up this world
I’ve decided to go with how I feel
The color of a smile, the color of an encounter
They will continue to evolve more and more
There is no answer, and I’m trying to find one

It’s not pretty, but I can’t give up
I’m sure I resemble this world, and I’ll keep on believingWith your new tears, you can now see the future
But you don’t have to be afraid of it
The pain in your heart and the view you’ve been looking for
Surely, surely, they will come together somedayWithout boundaries
An endless world opens up before my eyes
It doesn’t matter if this just a dream
Even if I keep getting lost, deep inside my heart
Forever and ever, it will keep on resonating

Forever and ever, it will be resonating…

Softly, softly, it will be glowing…
